Our Breasts

This blog is about breasts. It celebrates the beautiful diversity of breasts, of all sizes, shapes, colours, ages and races. By showing how all breasts are different, and uniquely special, we will be able to challenge the beliefs around what makes breasts beautiful. There is no single standard for breast beauty and all breasts are amazing. This blog aims to help people with breasts feel better about themselves, improve self-esteem, and show that they are normal.


This blog is inclusive of all cisgender women and trans* people with breasts, regardless of race, age or sexual preference.


NOTE: This blog shows photos depicting nudity in a non-sexual setting, and contains written content with adult themes. Photo submissions showing nudity are to be from people 18+ only.


WARNING: If you have a blog that mainly contains and reblogs porn, DO NOT FOLLOW this blog and DO NOT REBLOG any posts from it. Otherwise you will be blocked and reported for harassment.

I keep hearing stuff talking about how sleeping on your stomach can change your breast shape, like... misshape them or something? I sleep on my stomach and do indeed have rather... saggy boobs. I guess I'm a little concerned and hoping maybe it's just some people being stupid?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

It’s a myth. Breast sagging can be caused by a number of things, often in combination, including loss of skin elasticity often caused by smoking cigarettes, weight loss, heavy breasts, bouncing from exercise and pregnancy, though breastfeeding is not a factor. Sleeping face down will not cause your breasts to sag. That involves compression forces much like a compressive sports bra.

Email Submission: I’ve attached some photos you might want to use on your blogs. One of my breasts sits lower than the other. I think I’m the only person who notices. My nipples and boobs are also really veiny. I’m not sure why haha. I’ve recently taken my nipple piercing out however because it got pierced wrong and hadn’t healed after 4 months.

Beause I was the youngest in the family with two older sisters I thought I would never get boobs. I now have the biggest in the family. And yes I love my boobs. I’m a size 12E.

I’m putting together an art-nude photography project and am actively seeking people who have breasts and vulvas to participate.

This will high quality, highly detailed, and sometimes explicit but non-sexual photographs of your body and individual body parts, including your breasts and your vulva. As with the broad theme of my blogs this will be about showing the beauty, intricacy and diversity of our bodies.

If you’re over 18, interested and would like to find out more, please send me an email in confidence to ourbreasts@gmail.com.

My blogs have simple needs, but they do have annual expenses including maintaining URLs, subscription fees for running surveys, research, website layout, artwork etc. Plus I devote many hours to my sites, often at the expense of my day job and my pay!

To help keep them running, and providing the level of support and information that many people have come to rely upon, I’m asking for small donations from the many visitors and contributors to the site. All monies raised will be applied directly to help continue the work of Our Breasts and the Large Labia Project.

Please help by donating - simply click on the button to donate via PayPal or alternatively you can make your donation though GoFundMe.

Thank you, I appreciate your support.

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I have attached some pics of my breasts with my nursing bra. My youngest is 22 months. As always, thank you for empowering women and all of our labias and breasts.

100 Women & Their Breasts

Help this project become a reality. Please support on Kickstarter.

"BARE REALITY: 100 women and their breasts" is a project by photographer Laura Dodsworth, which explores how women feel about their breasts. 100 women bare all, bravely sharing un-airbrushed photographs of their breasts alongside personal stories about their breasts and their lives. With your help the project will conclude with the publication of a book. You can effectively pre-order your copy of "Bare Reality" on Kickstarter, or pledge your support with a different reward.

There has been so much public debate about breasts recently, from Free the Nipple to No More Page 3, from breastfeeding selfies on Facebook to Rihanna on the red carpet, from Scout Willis’s topless walk through New York to Grace Coddington’s banned cartoon on Instagram. I think the time has never been better to hear how women really feel about their breasts, and to see how they really look.

More than simply part of our bodies, breasts represent sexuality, motherhood and femininity. When we talk about breasts we talk about intimate aspects of our lives as women, such as growing up, sexuality, motherhood, breastfeeding, relationships, body image, health, cancer and ageing. 

Women aged from 19 to 101 years old took part, sized AAA to K, of different sexualities and different ethnicities. From all walks of life, their perspectives and experiences are diverse: Buddhist nun, social workers, strippers, career women, stay at home mums, burlesque dancer, full/long term breastfeeders, women who couldn’t breastfeed or didn’t want to, female vicar, nurses, cancer survivors, a club night promoter whose pseudonym is ‘Captain Hello Titties’, and so many more!

What will you gain from reading this book? If you are a man, you might not have seen as many ‘real’ breasts, or heard women be so frank. As a woman you might be interested in seeing what other women’s breasts look like and take heart: no one is perfectly symmetrical, many women perceive themselves to be too large, too small, too saggy. If you are younger and still developing, you might be curious to see ‘real’ breasts, learn about other women’s experiences, and gain an insight into your own potential future.

In return for your support through Kickstarter you will receive a unique and beautiful book about women and their breasts. It would also make a great gift for your female friends, your daughter, your mum, or your partner. 

If you think you want the book, or you would like to support the project, this is THE time to do it!

Hi, Ive been following largelabiaproject for a while but just started following this blog. I have inverted nipples. I know there natural, but I was wondering how common they are? Ive never seen nipples like mine before. Is it possible to breastfeed?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Hi, I’m glad you found your way here too. Inverted nipples are pretty common. About 10% of people have them. Here are some posts about it.

There are varying degrees of inversion, based on how much they pop out/stay out. Nursing is definitely possible, but it may be more troublesome. Babies don’t latch onto the nipple. They attach to the areola. If/when you’re pregnant it would be a good idea to talk to a lactation consultant who may can provide really good advice.

Inverted nipples aren’t something to worry about. They are commonplace, and dead sexy to boot!

Email Submission: I’m a huuuge fan of your work! I follow your projects everyday since its beginning. my words can’t describe how much I appreciate what you do and how I admire the amazing person you are. Your posture, your patience, your sensibility to help all these woman all around the world, your effort to find information, your urgency to empower these young girls who are taught wrong things about their anatomy and sexuality.. well, I see you receive testimonials thanking you and saying to you that you’ve changed lives - I think it says it all.

I’m sending you two pictures of my breasts; I think I have flat nipples - I love them! In one of the photos they are erect, so you can see the difference. I’m 22 and my breasts have grown since last year (I feel like I have a late puberty haha). Actually, I think it’s related to my recent recovery from anorexia. All my body has changed and I’m really glad - it’s due to the experience of photographing me naked that I got to break my self-image disorder and could start to see my body in a way that my own sick eyes and even the mirror didn’t let me. Since then, I’ve been taking pictures all the time and I’m able to follow how my perspective of my body changes. It’s saved my life.


You just totally made my day. Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m just happy to help and it’s truly humbling to know that what my sites do has such an impact on people’s lives. I have the biggest smile on my face.

Thank you for adding your beautiful breasts to my project. Your nipples are perfectly normal. Flat nipples are incredibly commonplace and a large proportion of people with breasts have them (I’ll report actual percentages soon after I’ve finished analysing my recent survey results).

I’m so happy to hear that you’ve been able to recover from anorexia, which is such a sad and dangerous disease. Your recovery is inspiring and I’m so glad that you were able to turn things around and save your life. The world needs amazing people like you in it.

It’s interesting to hear how your photography helped you to see yourself differently. It’s a phenomenon I’ve discovered through my blogs, with other people reporting that when they see themselves they can finally, objectively, appreciate how other people see them.

Thank you again for writing, being so kind, and for sharing your breasts and story. You’ll have helped someone else today to feel better about themselves, for which you should be proud.

To the submitter with the asymmetric AA & C cups: THANK YOU for sharing your story. I've been following this blog for a long time and never seen anyone else who breasts were as asymmetric as mine. You have no idea how much you've helped me feel less alone. Stay beautiful and brave. <3

Email Submission: I finally came up with the courage to snap a picture of my breasts. I have just the one, which was very difficult for me to face, let alone a few.

Looking at this picture disgusts me, and I hate that it does but I will never feel any differently, and this is also very sad.

I have considered getting my bigger one reduced, only to be told by my friends that I would look like a “boy” and have “no boobs” / look “flat chested” and it shocked me that the way MY breasts would look on MY body, came before my happiness.

I have a lot of stretch marks, too, but this is superficial.

This is a birth defect, and due to me suffering with over-scarring too, the only way is for me to keep them as they are as surgery would leave me with horrific scars. My right (left on the picture) is an AA and my bigger one is a C cup.

Thank you for reading.

Anonymous Submission: Hello! I’m celebrating my eighteenth birthday by submitting my breasts to you! I had very small breasts all through middle school into my junior year of high school. In middle school, I always half-joked about getting a boob job when I was older because I was so self-conscious of my chest. It wasn’t until I started taking birth control my senior year did my breasts grow from a 32B to a nice and plump 32C! I have accepted my body and I love it to pieces. Your blog has definitely helped me during this process, and I’m so glad I’m able to contribute.

Love the blog! Wondering if you or your followers can give me some input. I'm a size 34G and I'm getting a breast reduction in the next year for both health and personal reasons (hey, if you have big boobs like mine and wanna keep them, that's awesome! But my personal choice is to reduuuuuce) I'm wondering if anyone else has had the surgery and what it was like, as well as how small they were able to go! I work a desk job so I'm hoping recovery is decent... Any tips?
