Our Breasts

This blog is by people with breasts, for people with breasts. This blog is inclusive of all people with breasts, regardless of gender. It celebrates the beautiful diversity of breasts, of all sizes, shapes, colours, ages and races. Breasts are such an important and integral part of what makes us feel beautiful and sexual. 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! By sharing photos we are demonstrating how every breast is different, and in turn, we will be able to help people with breasts feel better about themselves, improve self-esteem, and show that yes, you are normal.

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.

Feeling bad about your body sadly affects so many people. How you handle your feelings is something only you can control. But you can be influenced, positively or negatively, by the messages you receive, from other people and the media. My best advice is to arm yourself with as much unbiased, evidence-based knowledge as possible, and try to let your logical mind guide your feelings. Rational knowledge is power. I hope my site can help you on your path to knowing yourself better by telling the truth about body diversity, and in turn help you appreciate that you really are ok.

I’m running my annual survey into your labia size, appearance and your feelings about them. This is the second survey, which helps to answer the questions about labia I’m asked every day, essentially “am I normal?”

The survey asks you to physically measure your labia minora size, with a ruler, and answer questions about your vulvar appearance, sexuality, and feelings about your labia. Please allow yourself around 30 minutes to complete the survey, and do this where you will have the comfort and privacy to be naked and measure your labia.

You can do the survey completely anonymously.

All people with labia/vulva are eligible to participate.

You can see last year’s survey results here: Labia Minora and Vulvar Appearance 2013: Survey Results

Please spread the word about this research, among your friends, family, social media contacts, tweet, reblog etc. The more people who do this, and the more diversity we have, the more meaningful and accurate the results.

I am deliberately not promoting this on the Large Labia Project as I don’t want to artificially skew the results towards larger labia. The survey aims to be a true, random representation of what labia are like.

How if you have saggy breasts and don't want others to see you braless because of that reason? I wish I could walk around with no bra on without feeling like my breasts hang and don't look good in a tank top. Or in a bathing suit. Or naked.

I think the bra-less look is really cute. Unless you have really large breasts and get back problems when you don't wear a bra (in which case, prioritize your comfort), you shouldn't ever feel embarrassed to have nipples showing through your shirt. Large rounded nipples through a button-up? Cute. Small nipples in a silk slip? Cute. 'Perky' nipples in a sundress? Cute. You know that awesome feeling when you take off your bra? You can feel that all the time. Freethenipple.

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I absolutely love what you do for your followers and have finally gained enough courage to submit. I’ve always been self conscious of my breasts since they first started growing. I’m 18 now and after getting them pierced I gained a  tiny bit of confidence. My areolas & “gum drop nipples” bother me the most - even more than the fact that they are obviously asymmetrical. My biggest insecurity is the difference in my areola size when my nipples are erect vs not - they look swollen at take up my entire breast. Hopefully one day I will have confidence in them until then fake it til I make it.

Im a 16 y/o 5'7" girl. I got fitted at VS and they told me 32D. But i cant find that bra size ANYWHERE but at victorias secret. Also i have extremely dark hair. It grows in awkward places like around my nipples and my stomach. Its so embarrassing...

Email Submission: Dear Emma, This is my body. I’ve enclosed both pictures of my labia and my breasts.

It has been hard for me to be confident in naked body because of my imperfections. My breasts are lopsided and actually completely dissimilar. My nipples are different sizes, shapes and colors. I am a size 34-36 B. I wish I had beautiful, even breasts. I feel like I would be much more open to letting people see them if I did.

Although I no longer have crippling self esteem issues about my body, my labia and breasts are still a source of anxiety for me in the bedroom. I like to have the lights off.

Anyway thank you so much for all you do. I am very, very nervous about doing this but excited as well. This has been a therapeutic experience for me.

Anonymous Submission: These are my breasts. I apologize for cropping but I have tattoos that I did not want seen.

I have been overweight all my teen/adult life, causing me to have less than perky breasts. I have always been self-conscious about them. I am currently seriously trying to lose weight and am scared they will just become loose skin and be even more saggy. I know there are loose skin removal and breast lift surgeries but that will most likely leave even more scars than I have now (stretchmarks). Also, I have large pores/black heads all over my chest which makes it that much worse for me. I just want attractive breasts. I am 23 years old and have never ever taken my shirt off in front of a man. I am extremely jealous of women who naturally have perky yet large breasts with smooth round nipples/areolas. I’m trying not to compare myself though and also trying to love myself.

Anonymous Submission:  Here is my 3rd submission of my tiny breasts. 19 years old.

I don't think it's fair of you to post pictures of "perfect breast" I'll scroll through looking at pictures and start feeling better and then wam! Perfect perk DD's and I feel horrible all over again I get that your trying to show that all bodies are beautiful but since we are already so bombarded with images of perfect body's in the media maybe your blog is NOT the place for these images. I mean I've considered unfollowing because of this issue. I come here to feel better not worse :(

Follow or unfollow, that’s your prerogative, though it’s unfortunate that you feel that way.

This blog is for all breasts, regardless of size, shape, colour, age, gender or race.

The idea of me sitting in judgement and determining whether these breasts are “in”, and those breasts are “out”, because they do or don’t conform to some arbitrary notion of beauty or perfection, would be grossly unfair and totally against what this blog is about.

Your reaction is all about you, your self-image, and your distorted beliefs about what constitutes beauty or perfection. You do everyone here an injustice by thinking that unless they have 36DD breasts then theirs aren’t perfect. Who am I, and who are you to sit in judgement and dictate standards of perfection? I know I’m not qualified to do it.
