    Hi Rihanna, Your boobs dont seem to much of a worry, if your breasts fit a 32b and one is really to big for that bra and the other is to small, that is when you need to be concerned. But from what i have read you dont seem to have much to worry about. Your bikini thing... dont worry about what people think! Everyone has there own problems. If its getting you down go to your GP trust me they are really helpful and explain you think you have Assymetic breasts. :) x

    I am 13 and have size C breasts, I recently watched the program about breasts on embarrassing boddies and I am worried about the 'mouse tumor' or something like that, a lump in my breast that I can move around. I have it in both of my breasts and they have been there for as long as my breasts have so I have no idea if it is normal or not. I would also find it embarrassing talking to my mam and doctor about it so I don't know what to do!!!

    You could email your Doctor privately or phone your local hospital to have a check up? sorry if not any help :)

    I am 19 year old female, my right hip slightly protrudes. I have noticed lately that I get a lot of pain from it, especially when I walk long distances. When i wake up in the morning my hip is usually in pain, a burning sensation. I've also noticed that on my right foot I have a slight bunion. A few years back i dislocated my right knee cap. I wonder if this has anything to do with it, maybe in the healing process I was compensating for the injured knee and therefore started to walk lopsided. I would like to know what can be done and if it is something to worry about?

    Well I'm not sure about the sagging but the stretch marks are there because those parts of your body grew really quickly most probably during puberty or sudden weight gain. To get rid of them you could use special creams to get rid of them or just your normal everyday cocoa butter

    I am 30, have 2 sons, aged 33 months and 16 months and have lopsided boobs, even more noticeable since stopping feeding my youngest son. Its upsetting me no end and finding a bra where i don't end up falling out of one side is near on impossible. I've lost almost 5 stone in weight since having my kids and my confidence weight wise is great but boob wise it just totally gets me down. I'm getting married in May and I just want to be normal!!! I'm sure the doctor would laugh or just poo poo it if i went for advice. I can't live my life like this forever!! Its awful!!

    Hi i am a thirteen year old girl and my breasts are....... I don't know, plain weird and not to mention small and on top of all EMBARRASSING!!!! It is pretty embarrassing since all of my friends can fit into a size 36D bras while i am just 34B. Almost everyone else in class has just about perfect breasts and during physical education class they are always flaunting it. I, on the other hand, always feel left out and like a weirdo. Also my breasts seem tubular and they have lumps. My mom noticed that they are not as round as normal breasts and she took me to see a doctor who said that's just hormones and i will grow out of it. That was a year ago. My breasts aren't really growing much and I am freaking out. I cannot wear all those clothes like girls with normal breasts. Every night i cry myself to sleep because of this. Im soo depressed. Can someone please help me? I am so desperate. Also if this is useful i started my periods 2 years ago. My breasts began growing two and a half years now. Help me PLEASE !!!!!!! :'(

    First of all I want to say it's great you've talked to your Mom about it and your doctor. Finding another doctor who knows more about tubular breasts might help also? I've had the same condition since I was your age and I'm now 24. The best things I've found are maintaining a healthy weight and staying slim, taking vitamins and supplements, using good skin care on my breasts, (especially because mine have been COVERED in stretch marks since 13) wearing bras and bikinis with molded cups or push up bras to give my breasts good shape in clothes, keeping fit but making sure I wear a sports bra whenever I work out, getting enough sleep, taking care of myself and being healthy in general. There are lots of ways I've learned to cope and improve my body too. I'm still self conscious but it's never been a problem for getting or keeping a boyfriend - focus on other things like your personality, intelligence, etc. and remember the world doesn't end with your breasts! Focus on your good qualities physically too and play them up - your beautiful face, great legs, nice skin, whatever it is. Focus on your best features and don't compare yourself to your friends. Even if that means being a little more modest to avoid feeling uncomfortable. There's nothing worse than a nasty comment from an unhelpful friend! Just don't take it to heart because girls can be so stupid! Get changed in private if you need to instead of in a common changeroom or whatever. I don't know if you actually have tubular breasts or if you just have normal breasts but are feeling like you're different from everyone else. If want to get something changed about your breasts cosmetically later on in life, I really wouldn't recommend surgery is as this can leave you with lots of scars and loss of feeling to your breasts through nerve damage. Instead maybe your parents can consult Cindy Jackson, an expert on cosmetic makeovers: http://www.cindyjackson.com/consultations-vip/info_31.html for things that can be done when you're older to make you feel more comfortable in your skin. If you're ok with nudity there's a site showing what's normal in healthy breasts of different shapes and sizes, promoting a more realistic and holistic body image. It's http://www.007b.com/breast_gallery.php (WARNING this site has photos of breasts so do not enter if that offends you!) I'm sure there will be lots of photos of women's breasts that are normal and healthy and just like yours, so don't feel weird or depressed. Even if you have tuberous breasts they may be less common, but are still part of normal body variation and lots of other people have the same. Women with tuberous breasts live happy normal lives, get married, have kids etc. It is NOT the end of the world. :) Please just learn to love yourself and take good care of yourself and trust that looking a certain way is not that important! Hope this helps! Much love and God bless.

    Thank you so much for replying Bianca. You are a lifesaver. God bless You and keep on being AMAZING. Xoxo amber

    Hi, I'm a 14 year old girl who is worried about her breasts. I have several questions I'd like to ask and I'd hope for answers to them. Firstly ill just let you know a little more about my breasts. I'm a 32-30 Dd and as you can tell they are pretty big for my size 6-8 figure. Although I've noticed that they sag quite a lot and I was wondering if there was anyway possible for them to be more perky without surgery?(natural way) another question I'm going to ask is that I have stretch marks on my breasts and they stand out a lot, so is there anyway of getting rid of them? My final question, is there any way of getting/helping your breasts grow inwards(so that you get a line/that kind of thing) and for them not to sag outwards? Thanks again, a confused teenager.

    I think the first thing you need to know is that this is totally normal. Unfortunately, there isn't a lot than can be done to naturally change the shape of your breasts - only surgery can do that, which I would not recommend for someone at your age. But you are only 14, so it is entirely possible that your breasts will change over time. If you feel embarrassed about the "outward" shape, consider purchasing a good bra (scaffold bras are good) - go to an underwear store or a general store like M&S to get advice. As for the stretch marks, they should fade over time. It sounds as though your breasts grew quite rapidly which is why this happened. You could try products like bio oil, and if you want to show off a bit of cleavage on a night out, foundation can work wonders. To conclude, it all sounds perfectly natural and there is really no need for you to worry. Any problems are very uncommon in young women, but see your GP if you are worried - if there are dramatic changes for example. I know it's not a practical solution to your problem, but I hope this will ease your mind a little - and trust me, you have a figure most women crave, so embrace it!

    I have just turned 17. Since my breasts first began to develop they had always seemed very low and had an irregular shape. My nipples are very large and point downwards and my breasts sag and are very low. From the information on this website I appear to have tuberous breasts. I have always been really insecure and do my best to hide them by wearing tight bras that keep them quite perky and high however I have weak ligaments in my shoulders and because of the tightness of my bras and the weight of my DD breasts my shoulders are often very swollen and I'm in quite a lot of pain. I really don't want anyone to see but if I showed a doctor would they actually be able to help me in any way?

    Am 18 years old I have lopsided breasts,my left breast is smaller than my right breast. This has been making me really upset and angry cause at some cases people joke about. What upsets me the most is that my little 15 year old sis has symmetrical and even larger breasts than me. Am I weird? Cause I think this is affecting my life. I can't let my boyfriend touch them which is putting strain between us. I am still a virgin because of them and until I have even breasts I don't think I'll let people or anyone see me naked. I can't even model anymore cause this sick illness of lopsided breasts is really affecting my life.

    I feel ya. !! I'm also 14 and hava the same problem, whenever I sit people who are standing or passing buy can literally see all the way to my belly button it's SO annoying and I'm really self conscious about it. I also have lopsided breasts and lopsided ribs my left rib and breast are substantially bigger than my right but I already have a pretty much pre pre-pubescent breast growth so yea :(

    My right breast has been bigger than my left breast ever since they started growing. My right is a 38DD and my left is probably a C cup. It's caused my alot of distress over the years. But I am 25 now and I'm getting closer to accepting my body. Practically every woman alive has a slight difference in their breasts and many women have a more noticable difference. I wanted to right this comment to maybe just make some women feel a bit better about their different sized breasts. You don't have to be ashamed. Seeing so many seemingly 'perfect' women in the media has given women an idea that they should be perfect too, or that lopsided breasts makes you less of a woman. But it's not true. Also, many sexual partners have seen my breasts and no one has ever had a problem with them. In fact many times I've been told that I have really nice breasts, I think men are just so happy to be touching boobs that they don't really care if they're different. One boyfriend actually kind of liked the fact that they were different. But most importantly, if a man loves you for who you are then he won't care about your breasts being lopsided. Besides, even the women with symettrical breasts will be old and sagging one day, it's personality that counts, a cliche, but true.

    You know it's interesting that I found this site because a guy I used to know was harassing me today about having lopsided breasts and it's interesting and sad that all of these amazing, beautiful women on this sight talk about being insecure and sad about their "embarrassing" health problem. Yes, uneven or lopsided breasts are not the norm in any current society, but you know what I've learned? I've learned to love myself for who I am and that's not easy so honestly, I just wanted to tell all of you amazingly beautiful women who don't have the perfect bodies, you are beautiful the way you are. God made you in His own image. Don't let anyone tell you differently. I have been in your situations ladies and I am sorry about all the pain and hurt that your imperfection has caused you.

    Hi, I'm 19 nearly 20 and I've always had a problem with my breasts. When I was 13 I found out I had scoliosis (a curved spine) I had a double curve going left at the top and right at the bottom. So like an S. This caused my left breast to be significantly larger than my right and at a different height. I used to have bad posture due to it. And my right breast has basically never developed. It's like gravity has just pulled y left breast down cos that's how my shoulders fell and my rips stuck out on that side too. I had corrective surgery for my spine at 15 and thought my breasts would develop and change now that my spines straight. But they stopped developing. The problem is that although it has always bothered me I sort of got over it. There's nothing I could do I'm a nursing student and have no money for cosmetic surgery. But the the day my sister saw y breasts after is showered and was like 'woah your boobs are really lopsided you should do something it's weird' now I feel I can't take my bra off in bed with my boyfriend. Cos if my own sister can say that then everyone else must be thinking it. It's noticble through clothes aswell. But really before now I've always said i'll get a boob job when I'm older. But let's be honest i'll be working for the NHS i'll never be able to afford it. And I don't want to be lopsided any more. I'm 6foot 3 and already have people staring at me for that I'm 70kg and feel that I can't put on weight cos it never goes to my boobs and they remain small and make me look fatter. I just don't know what to do.

    Just take off your bra when you're with your boyfriend. Im younger than you, Im still a teenager and ive always hated my breasts. I justfeel like they're deformed, like nature hates me. My younger sister believes that my breasts are weird, and so believe some of my friends. Although their comments hurt me more than they could ever imagine, I know they're just teasing me for fun. Besides, they've also said that they don't consider my breasts as a problem and they believe I have a nice body. Despite all that, ive always been suffering. BUT I always take my bra off when having sex with my boyfriend. I don't even feel embarrassed when doing so. I know that he loves me for who I am and wants me for my body as it is. In fact, that makes me feel better about myself. Im sure that your boyfriend loves you for who you are as well, and trust me, you will feel much better about your own body if you feel comfortable with him. So don't hold back next time :) ps, what your sister said was simply unacceptable. Istead of blaming your body, try blaming her for saying something so harsh just like that, without thinking how that would have made you feel.

    You're a completely normal girl who sounds very much like me when I was young. One of my breasts is larger than the other and a slightly different shape. They are also covered in stretch marks. Believe me when I say men do not care what they look like as much as you do. Your boyfriend will simply be happy to be touching them I'm sure! Take a read of all the comments on here are you will see the majority are of people with lopsided breasts as well. You are normal, you are perfect.

    My left breast is slightly bigger than the 40dd cup i wear and my left breast is probably JUST a c cup. I go to great lenghts to diguise my breasts and i'm absolutely terrified to show anyone. I hate people looking at me because i think they are looking at my lopsided breasts. I need some advice!!!!!!

I am unsure on how to bring up the subject to the GP as I am too embarassed and scared they will think I am over reacting. It really effects my self esteem and would like help.

    hi, im not sure what to do, my left breast is about 2 cups bigger than my right, and the left nipple tends to sit inner ward, like a crossed eye. im thinking that maybe i have to much weight on the left side of my left breast, but i have had lopsided breasts since i was a teen and very thin so im not sure if its the weight. I've always been ashamed of my breasts and don't feel sexy like a woman should feel. what can i do to fix my breasts so they are even?

Partners have noticed my lopseded outer lips.

    Loved your post. It's fantastic to know so many other women are wonky. I'm in my thirties, and only recently become aware that I am lopsided after a staph infection in my right breast. My infection cleared up, but the breast has seemed bigger since then (about one cup size bigger and droopier). I became very self-conscious and withdrawn. I started looking for surgical options, none of which appealed to me. Then I looked at photos from my past and guess what, it's ALWAYS been bigger, I just never noticed it, nor have any of my boyfriends commented on it. If so many of us are lopsided, clearly men are used to it! The woman in the video is married, doesn't that tell you something? I also discovered I was wearing the wrong size bra (several sites show you how to measure yourself) and bought some new ones today in the right size, including some sexy lacy ones. For tight shirts, I'll get an insert for the smaller breast. My confidence has soared knowing I'm not the only one and there are non-invasive fixes. And men love confidence as well as breasts, no matter what the size.

    can someone please help me i have three missing teeth bottom left and three missing top right at the back,i noticed that my mouth was lopsided,one day when takng a picture my dentist,noticed it n kept saying i will fill ur gaps where u have teeth missing n ur mouth wont b lopsided anymore i kept asking him when he was going to fill the gaps of my missing teeth he he wud make excuses up or say he wud sort it,,he promised to do it n he never has done it so i stopped attending my appointments with him,cos he's made me look a freak,,hes made my face look like im disabled,my sons friend said to my son is ur mum disabled her mouth is lopsided, ive started to cover my face when i go out,n i really do have a horrible face with no shape to it before my dentist got to it i had a lovely round face,can i get help somewhere as this is really making my life hell,im really embarrassed by it please help

    You can ask your dentist to make a mould of your teeth and they will make on for you, it will cost if you are not on nhs , I grind a lot but I have been refurred to specialist but they said I have to get out of habit , take ibuprofen , warm pack on jaw and softer diet, iv done all this and it does ease a bit , my ear hurts from the swelling of the jaw which I find more painful ! I'm always aware of my jaw now so even sitting in the car or watching tv , take 5 to relax and put your mouth in the rest position which is Swallow, tongue to roof of mouth, teeth NOT touching , lips together . That's the rest position try and be aware to do it at all time and it will ease , good luck !

    I'm 16 and I started to devloped when I was about 10. My breast where growing about the same rate then about three years ago my right one started to grow way faster than my left. My right breast is a d cup and my left is a b cup. I'm very embarrassed about it! I don't really like to go swimming or goin to the beach because I feel like everybody will notice how lopsided my breast are! My sister points it out to me all the time jokingly but it makes me feel like the whole world can see how lopsided they are. I have tried a padded bra to see if it would help some but it only made it worse! I just don't know what to do.

    Breast development stops at 20 so you'll probably grow out of it but for just now just stuff your bra on the other side

    Breast development stops at 20 so you'll probably grow out of it but for just now just stuff your bra on the other side

    I started noticing that the left breast of much bigger than the other when I was around 10 years old (I developed early) and it would worry me even then, because I didn't want to go through life with a lopsided upper body. As I got into high school and my breasts were finally fully developed, I noticed that the right one was a C cup and the left was an A cup, which made it so hard to find bras that fit right. I remember hanging out with a friend and her boyfriend one day, and I was wearing a right shirt, he said "why does it look like one is much bigger than the other?" while laughing. It made me want to curl up in a ball right there and cry, because it is noticeable through clothes. I also had a boyfriend in high school and the same one a little after high school that said that it was pretty cool, because he could choose which one he felt like touching depending on his mood, which made me feel worse. I've always been self-conscience about it though, especially when I first start becoming intimate with someone, because I'm never sure how they will react. I've been living with my current boyfriend for well over a year now and I'm still ashamed to be naked in front of him and when we do happen to have sex, I'm afraid to be on top. I remember we were just joking around in the kitchen one day and he ended up picking up a big and small pot lid and putting the big one over the big breast and the small one over the small breast, and he said "look, they fit!" He wasn't trying to be mean about it, but it made my anxiety over my breasts worse, because I know he knows they are very lopsided. I'm 25 years old and I'm afraid to have children, because I have heard that the bigger one will get even more bigger than the smaller one, I just don't want that to happen.

    I'm age 55 and I've had lopsided breasts since my teens. My right one is pert and a good shape c-cup and my left droops down and is dd/e-cup. I always look untidy even when wearing nice clothes the fabric pulls over to one side and nothing fits properly. But because I've suffered with depression throughout my life I never thought I was important enough to bother with. Now I'm in a much better place mentally and emotionally I'd like to get my body looking as good as I can for my age.

    Like many woman I have the problem of lopsided breasts, my right being larger. I'm 17 and have hated this and been extremely self conscious about it for years, it doesn't help having slight stretch marks on the larger breast. Is there any non-surgical method to make the smaller breast grow? Other than this being a long term issue for me sharp pains have also started up on my right breast, it also feels quite firm? I don't want to be paranoid about this as most of the time breast pain amounts to nothing too serious. However, the pain is not even associated with my mentrual cycle (when breast pain occurs here for me it usually happens in both breasts, the pain isn't sharp and no hardness is felt) could someone please help me?

    lopsided breasts due to surgery for breast cancer on the left 11 years ago. Now I am 64, right breast has become huge and floppy ( I've gained 3 stones in 11 years) but left breast remains the same . Was told it will never grow due to radiotherapy treatment. Can't get any clothes to fit and all bras hurt.have tried to lose weight but to no avail.Is there a solution?

    Lopsided breasts are the most common thing among women. I am 24, and started to noticed my breasts were a different size and different shape when I first started developing. It only got worse and once I fully developed I was a B and a D cup. In my teens I was hugely paranoid, and i would stuff my right bra cup with tissue paper to even them out. When it comes to boys it took me a while to whip my top off - but it shouldn't of done. I found boys only noticed if I strategically placed my hand during sex to his my smaller one, and they noticed straight away. 99.9% of men will not care - they just want someone who is body confident and can enjoy themselves...although it sounds cliche it is so true and I have learnt this. Also talk to your fiends, I eventually did and two of my closest friends had the same problem. I never noticed it looking at them, and they never noticed looking at me! Right now you'll think it's the worst thing in the world - yeah it's a pain but I don't like my knees either but you still have to live with it!

    Honey there is nothing wrong with image 42. I myself wouldn't mind having boobs like that. I'm like a 36/38C but my boobs are saggy, triangular, and lopsided. Yet my boyfriend tells me how much he loves them just the way they are. Your boobs may change as you continue to grow or they may not. Be grateful for the beautiful breasts you have. I always tell myself "those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind" Just be confident in who you are. That's what guys really find attractive.
