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.

Hey I'm 15 and my breasts are really small especially now that I've lost weight and they really haven't grown much since I got them really except they plumped a little bit after I started my period when I was 13 and both sides of my family have small breasts so I know I won't end up being more than a b cup anyway but I was just wondering do you think they'll grow more? I've kinda lost hope because they haven't grown in a while and I'm afraid that they're done growing and I'm stuck with them..

Maybe they will and maybe they won’t. There’s no way to for me or anyone else to say. My best advice is to not be fixated on the size of your breasts. They are what they are. It doesn’t matter how big they are because all breasts are amazing and beautiful. Small breasts are perfect. I know that a lot of society reveres large breasts, but a good proportion of their owners will tell you large breasts can be a curse. Believe me, you have better things to turn your attention and emotional energy to, so try not to worry about the size of your breasts.

Does going on birth control make your breasts grow? Lots of people have told me that.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

Yes that often happens with hormonal birth control.

There’s an under-representation of coloured breasts on this site, so this is a general invitation to people of all races, but especially people of all ethnic and racial backgrounds, to help address this imbalance. Basically we need to see more breasts of different colours - there’s too much white :)

Email Submission: Hi Emma, long time visitor, first time submitter haha. I love what you’re doing here and wanted to be a part of it. I haven’t seen an ugly pair of breasts on your site, they are all so sexy and beautiful. 

I’ve been thinking of contributing my breasts and labia for a long time now. I may submit my labia soon. These are my 27 year old, 12C breasts, no children. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with them. I like how they look in a bra, and I like how they feel **they feel great and I can some from having my nipples sucked** but I wish they weren’t so saggy. They always have been but I’ve lost a lot of weight recently and my boobs have suffered. But I’d rather be a healthy weight. I’m much happier and more comfortable with my breasts after visiting yours and other body affirming websites and blogs, keep up the great work.

Can you give any advice about getting a good bra? I'm 15 so I know my boobs are going to grow, I am 30 around the band size and 38 for the measurement around my nipples. I wear a 34D usually but sometimes the band feels super loose and stuff. Is that weird?
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

My best advice is to get yourself professionally fitted by a specialist (try a smaller lingerie store rather than a big chain like VS). Do it at least yearly, or 6 monthly if your breasts are still growing. There’s more art than science in getting a well-fitted bra, which would need to take into account the standard bra-fitting measurements for band and cup size, but also the shape of your breasts, and the differences between manufacturers, and sizing differences between countries.

But a word of advice - if the band is loose then you’re wearing the wrong size. The band does most of the work in supporting your breasts, so you need to get that right first.

I told my friends about your blogs (we are fourteen) at first they thought it was a little weird but after I explained the purpose and how inspiring they were they thought it was cool too now we all follow!
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

That’s awesome, well done for being brave enough to talk with your friends so openly. Your friends’ initial reaction is understandable; my blogs aren’t conventional! But I’m glad, and grateful, that you’re spreading the word.

Keep following, and go through the archives of both of my blogs, and you’ll see that some people love their breasts and vulva, some are self-conscious about them, but the common connection is that all breasts and vulva are amazing, regardless of size, shape, colour and appearance.

It’s easy as a young teen to be sucked into the misinformation (including cruel jokes and derogatory slang names for them), silly mythology and media propaganda about what breasts and vulvas should look like and how big they should be. You’ll be faced with that every day of your life. Try to keep it in your mind though that your breasts and vulva are now, and will be, perfect in every way and exactly how they should be.

Email Submission: Hello Emma! I am nervous but so happy to submit to your page. I know you do not like full length body photos, but could you please post these as I wanted to show my body like this, and could you please post these to both your labia and breasts pages. I am 20 years, from Denmark, and I have had anorexia and bulimia since I was 15 years. I am now recovered. I am proud of my body and I want to show it so that other girls can know they can do it and they are ok too with what ever their body is.

I am also embarrassed of my large labia but your site is helping me to feel more comfortable with them. I think I can love them soon and looking at all the other beautiful vaginas here I know mine are beautiful too.

Thank you for helping me to feel better about myself. Love love love <3

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I found your blog after seeing a link to you on Scout Williss’s Twitter about #freethenipple. I’m going to try to go topless as much as I can, and go braless too. I don’t care who sees. I wanted to show my breasts to encourage your other readers with breasts like mine to embrace their breasts too. I recently got my nipples pierced and I wanted to show them off. I love my boobs and nipples even though they have stretch marks, they are uneven, saggy and I have what an ex boyfriend called pepperoni nipples. Screw him, I don’t care and I love them. I can’t wait to breastfeed one day. I’m 26 years old, and 34C.

Is it normal that my breasts are still growing even though im 22? They didn't grow much in my teens but all the women in my family had huggge breasts (except for my mom) so maybe they're just catching up, but i always heard that they don't grow much after 20? They're still very uneven, i hope that they'll even out as they grow but that didn't happen :-/
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

It’s not unheard of for breasts to continue growing in your 20s, so don’t worry about that. Uneven breasts are pretty much the norm, so that’s nothing to worry about either. You’re fine, and there’s no reason to be concerned.

Hello! So I've only just heard about your page through googling my breast worries and firstly, I wanna say how amazing you are for doing this. I'm 16 years old, 32B/C and I'm so insecure about my breasts. My nipples are huge:/ by that I mean the skin around the nipple. My boyfriend says there's nothing wrong with them but I can't help but feel insecure. They're also quite far apart. I've been looking at things online if there is anything to decrease the size of my nipples but I find nothing,help
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

The pigmented skin around your nipples is called the areola (or areolae for both of them). These are really important when breastfeeding because it’s where a baby latches onto - not the nipple itself. The areolae have special glands (Montgomery glands) that secrete oils and scents which act as a GPS system for babies. Plus they look sexy and hot and come in different sizes, shapes (round, oval - vertical and horizontal), and colours (pinks, browns, purples, blacks) and yours sound delightful. Why would you want to make them smaller? And breasts can be close together or far apart. It’s all normal. Your boyfriend is 100% right.

So recently I lost a bunch of weight that at first I was super happy about watching my stomach shrink ask shrink until finally I now have a flat belly but then I noticed how much smaller my breasts had gotten. I didn't really notice at first because I don't pay attention to them much but after I noticed I've just gotten so sad lately. I was finally accepting them as the perky little 34 a/bs that they were and now even my tightest push up bras won't give me cleavage :(

My breasts used to be the same size but now one has gotten considerably smaller. You can't really notice with clothes and stuff on but when I look at myself naked it freaks me out. Any idea why one breast got smaller and not the other because I'm confused as hell.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

It might be from weight loss, hormone changes especially progesterone and loss of oestrogen, menopause and probbaly other things as well. Why it’s one and not the other, I really don’t know, other than having breast asymmetry is the norm so there may have been different fat and glandular tissue from breast-to-breast to start with.

Hi, Emma. I am 15, and most of the people I've been intimate with have "made fun of me" because of my breasts. One of my breasts is a B cup while the other is a C, and one of my nipples are a light pink color while the other is a light purple.
ourbreasts ourbreasts Said:

I’m sorry to hear that you’ve encountered some really insensitive arseholes. That’s the danger of being sexually active at a young age when you’re getting naked with people who don’t have the maturity to understand what normal anatomy is really like, and how their stupid words can be really cutting.

There’s nothing wrong with you. Breast asymmetry is normal, even when you’re talking over a cup size in difference. I appreciate that it’s an annoying pain in the butt, getting bras to fit properly (fit for the C cup and pad out the B cup). Having different coloured nipples and areolae aren’t a problem,and in fact sound really pretty.

The only thing you need to work on is being more selective with the people you are sexual with. I always recommend getting to know and trust the person first, so you greatly lower the risk that you expose yourself to people who just aren’t worth your time. Random hook ups aren’t the way to go.

Email Submission: Hi Emma, I’m a big fan of both of your blogs. You have no idea how much you have helped me. It took me a long time to get the courage to submit these and I’m real nervous about it. I have an eating disorder, but I’m recovering. I read another person say in a post she had been taking photos of herself which helped her, and I thought ‘I’ve been doing that too’. I have been taking photos of myself for a few months now and looking at my vagina like you said to do in another post - my labia are small but I still used to feel insecure you know? I might submit my vagina soon.

You can see my body change in some of these photos and I like my breasts when I’m at a healthier weight as I now am in the last photo. They are not symmetrical and my nipples are kind of funny but I actually don’t mind that. I’m happy to share and I’m kind of feeling proud of my breasts now. My girlfriend says they are beautiful and I can now believe her without thinking she is just saying that to make me feel better.

Thank you Emma for everything you do for us girls. You are my hero in so many ways. I owe you so much <3

To the hypothyroidism anon: I have it too, all the women in my mom's side have it, and it caused my secondary amenorrhea. If you have any concerns about your reproductive health at all PLEASE go see planned parenthood or a similar gynecologist. Don't wait for almost two years like I did
