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.

So I'm 14, and I wear a size 34DDD, sometimes 36DDD (in us sizing) I'm a little embarrassed that my boobs are so big. Is it weird to have such large breasts at this age?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

You might be a bit ahead of the curve, but teenagers’ bodies develop throughout puberty at different rates, with some earlier than others. And breasts can be all different sizes and shapes. It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. Teens are often insecure and will find something to fret about, whether it’s worrying that you breasts are too big, or very commonly whether they are too small. The thing is, everyone’s different, and nobody’s breasts are better or worse than the next person’s.

You’re fine. But I would recommend that you get properly fitted for bras at least once a year through your teens, especially if the rest of your body is still growing.

…and the Large Labia Project! Doh! Anyway here’s a nice interview I did with The Student Journals :)

Have you taken my surveys yet?

Breasts - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SM3JN2G 

Labia - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LabiaSurvey2014

I’m running annual surveys into your breasts and labia - size, shape, appearance and your feelings about them. I use the results of these to help answer the questions I’m asked every day, essentially “am I normal?”

The surveys ask you to take physical measurements with a ruler, and answer questions about your breasts and vulvar appearance, sexuality, and feelings about these parts of your body.

Please allow yourself around 30 minutes to complete each survey, and be sure to do this where you will have the comfort and privacy to be naked.

You can do the surveys completely anonymously.

These surveys are inclusive and all people with breasts and labia are eligible to participate. No cisgender males though please.

There is so little research about breasts and especially vulva, so please help me build up some objective knowledge about our breasts and genitals. Everything learned will help to support people who feel insecure about their bodies, and you may learn something about yourself too.

Email Submission: Hi, I’m 18 (5’2; 235 lbs) and I haven’t worn a bra in about a month, but I used to wear a 34C, although I’m pretty sure that was too small.

I’ve always loved my breasts despite their sagging, stretch marks, and little hairs. I didn’t begin to think that there was something wrong with my breasts until a few months ago when I saw a video of a woman talking about her breast lift on YouTube. When she described her breasts, many of their features were similar to mine and she went on and on about how disgusting and ugly and unattractive they were… until she got her breast lift and they became the best things since sliced bread.

The video made me think that maybe my boobs aren’t as amazing as I always thought they were. I began to feel very self conscious of them and I began to watch breast lift surgery videos. I also looked up breast surgeons in my area, and I even thought about what bills I could eliminate to pay for the $5,000 surgery.

I was actually thinking about how I could convince my mom to go see a few surgeons with me when I stumbled upon your blog. Seeing all of these beautiful, natural, and imperfect breast reminded me that I honestly have no problem with the way my breasts look. To me, they’re perfect and I don’t need to waste $5,000 ‘improving’ something I’m 100% satisfied with!!

As an apology to my breasts for my temporary insanity, I decided to stop wearing bras so I could show them off in all their bouncy glory. The ‘girls’ and I have never been happier and more confident! ♡

Youre pretty fucking stupid... Its completely legal in all but 3 states to be completely topless... Learn before you complain
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

1. The world isn’t limited to the USA. I’m assuming that’s what you’re talking about. Get a dictionary and look up “insular”.

2. This is about social mores (you might want to look that word up too), sexism, equality and misogyny as much as the law. Whether it’s legal to be topless in any given location, and being able to do it without harassment, are two very different things.

3. Female nipples are still subject to censorship in the media and social media e.g. Facebook, unless you’re a nursing mother (recent victory for sanity there). Female nipples are still regarded as obscene. Male nipples aren’t.

I don’t care much for your abusive message. I think the real learning point in all of this is for you. You can leave now and don’t bother coming back. You aren’t welcome.

Im 18, weigh 110 and are 5,1. I have always felt insecure about how my breast look and started considering cosmetic surgery in seventh grade and I still feel like its the only option. They're saggy, very asymmetrical, and my nipples and areola are placed very low. It doesn't feel good to be 18 and having them look that way and I do not feel comfortable around sexual partners without a bra because I just think of them as highly unattractive and ugly. I wished I had prettier boobs, thats all.

Hi Emma, I just wanted to submit this photo of my breasts and embrace your blog. I believe I have smallish breasts with rather large nipples along with slight asymmetry of the nipples. I just wanted to show people that variations in other peoples breast but differences can also occur in each breast on an individuals body. Thank you for this blog Emma!

I'm 14 and found this blog from a scoliosis search I actually love it all the guys my age are obsessed with porn and stereotypical hot girls I wish they could see this and understand why real women look like 😘 ( . ) ( . )
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

I’m glad you found your way here. I wish everybody could understand and appreciate body diversity and starting young, with proper structured education about it at school, would be ideal. Unfortunately that’s pretty rare.

I’m submitting this in celebration of my 18th birthday. My shoulders are uneven because of scoliosis, and I’d rather have a flat chest, but these are still pretty cool.

Go ahead and post the picture with my url in case people have scoliosis questions or anything. The tumblr scoliosis community is seriously lacking body positivity, so I want to try to be a really open, unashamed representation of that.


Happy birthday!!! Thanks so much for wanting to share your breasts. They are more than pretty cool; they are beautiful. And your willingness to selflessly be there to support others with scoliosis is really admirable. I think you’re pretty wonderful and proud to have you here. Thanks for contributing.

Have a wonderful birthday.

I enjoy consuming porn from time to time. I always end up scratching my head in wonder or outright disbelief when people write to me and say that they never see body parts of this size, or that shape, when they watch porn. Like “I never see labia in porn as big as mine -  they are all tiny and pink”, or “I never see puffy nipples in porn, I feel so abnormal”. Are you all blind?

How is it then that I manage to find photos (my preferred nude model porn), plus movies and gifs like this without even trying? Without even searching for it. Those body parts are just “there”, everywhere, like the models I stumbled upon just now. Beautiful model, normal anatomy, large protruding labia, large areolae, puffy nipples. Just another everyday gorgeous nude model.

Perhaps I need to give lessons on how to use Google.

Dear visitors, I really need your help.

Lately I’m finding that I’m not able to spend enough time on my blogs - posting contributions, editing photos to to endure privacy, researching answers to questions and responding to the many emails and private messages I receive asking for my help, on top of the surveys and general research that I do. That all consumes a huge amount of my time - many hours per week - which of course I’m very happy to devote.

But I feel as though recent contributors to my sites are getting a raw deal from me and I’m letting them down, simply because I don’t have enough time. I’m passionate about helping so it’s heartbreaking to think some people aren’t getting the attention, advice, or simply some kind words of encouragement, that they need.

So I’ve decided to reduce my hours at work (I actually have a proper job and I’m not a full-time blogger!) to spend more time to running my sites.

But to do that I’m going to have to ask for your kind financial support through donations. 

The work that I’m doing through my sites is important, and I would ideally be able to spend a whole lot more time taking care of them. But a girl’s still gotta eat! So I’m asking you to help me to help you, and other people who are suffering from body image problems about their breasts and labia. If you or people that you care about have personally benefited from my sites, then please seriously consider helping to fund them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can make a donation through GoFundMe.

The alternative is that I’ll have to reduce the number of responses I give, or change the nature of the sites completely to be “contributions only”, with no Q&A at all - something I’d hate to see happen. So please help me out and if you can make a donation, it will be for the benefit of many, and I’ll be very grateful.

Thank you!

Emma

I don’t often promote other Tumblrs but my friend Savannah’s “The Self-Love Project" deserves special mention. Highly recommended.

SURVEY: Does Pubic Hair Prevent Labial Chafing & Irritation?
I’m running a quick survey to see whether having pubic hair on your labia majora, or whether shaving or waxing, affects the amount of irritation, pain, discomfort, chafing, tugging, pulling etc that some people with large labia minora experience.
To take the survey you can either click the link above, or scan the QR code.
Oh, and this is for only for people with a vulva. No vulva, no survey.
