    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!!!

    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

    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?

    hey, i have recently watched your show with the lady on who had tubular breasts and was uncomfortable with the way that they were. i am 17 and have hated my breasts since they started developing. one is quite a lot bigger than the other, the areola of my breasts are large and a very pale colour, and due the the constant change in my weight i have stretch marks all over my breasts and excess skin on them too. they are quite obviously making me very unhappy and my current boyfriend of nearly three months has not seen my breasts and only one other partner has. my breasts are rather saggy for a 17 year old too and as you can imagine i was wondering if there is anything i can get to help without paying an extortionate amount.

    Hi, Im 22 years old and have never liked my breasts! They are extremely saggy! I just wish I had the breasts every other 'normal' 22 year old starts out with. They are not particularly large but yet are very saggy, my nipples pointing downwards leaving my breasts looking more like thin flaps of skin and fat rather than actual breasts. Im not sure what is available via the nhs or cosmetic companies or what procedures would be used as I have read all breasts need individual consultations etc but need to do something ASAP I have really had enough! Thank you.

    Hello everyone, i dont have symmastia, but my friend and roommate does-from puberty apparently and i still think it's one of the most beautiful breasts i ever saw. I think it's envy that makes people mock and taunt. She's quite proud of her breasts and flaunts them when she can. When other gals already have to worry about drooping breasts, my roomie's breasts seem to have a support of their own, and look like they will clearly defy gravity for years to come. So to all those who have these, be proud, ur breasts are one in a million.

    I love the previous comment. I have congential symmastia, I'm 23 now but I posted on here about a year ago. I was obsessed about trying to fix them, I was so embarrassed that I didn't have a cleavage and that I couldn't wear balcony bras. Now I love my boobs. My friends envy how perky they are and I barely wear bras anymore. I find bronzers help create a cleavage and strengthening peck muscles keeps them perky. I don't think this a rare condition, I just don't think anyone talks about it. My boyfriend loves them, my friends love them, it was me that had the problem with them (which was stupid). I urge all girls in this position to give yourself a break, you didn't cause this it just happened to you but it's actually a perky blessing in disguise!

    Because breasts are the focus of so much attention, almost EVERYONE is self concious about theirs... Girls with larger breasts often want smaller breasts because large breasts are heavy, sag and jiggle a lot which makes it harder to run and things. Think about the GOOD things about having smaller breasts.. Yours will most likely continue to grow, and if you are worried that guys might not like them, guys like any breasts, and a lot even prefer a smaller chest. So learn to love your body, and there are always padded bras :)

    Ladies, please calm down about your boobs. You have allowed the media to control you and make you think that breasts are meant to look a certain way. Size, shape, nipple color, nipple size, its all in your heads! Even different sized breasts are normal. Most is set by heredity and there isnt anything realistic you can do about it! Your breasts are beautiful just as they are and if you think there is something wrong, see a doctor you are comfortable with. Most likely, its all in your head. If some one else dont like your breasts, well, "tough" its their hang up not yours! I am a male, I love breasts, I prefer smaller breasts over the larger ones, I always have but every pair of breasts are beautiful to me. I was the same about my body, maybe im average, maybe im smaller than others but it is what it is and Im happy with that.

    I'm 27 years old and have a son who is almost 3. Before I had my son I like to think I had a fairly nice pair of breasts. However after having my son when I stopped breastfeeding and lost some weight my breasts ended up looking like they have turned into the breasts of an old women!! They now just feel like horrible saggy bits of skin hanging off my chest. It makes me feel really down as I am scared of getting into any relationship now as i don't want to show my breasts if I was to get intimate. I have been single for almost 2 years now and would like a boyfriend as I do get lonely but my breasts are holding me back as I am so embarresed by them. Every time I look at them it makes me want to cry.........what can I do??? I want breasts that look 27 not 87!!

    I have the same problem. Im 17 years of age and since ive stopped breastfeeding my breasts just look worse. It all started when I was in year 7, I noticed my breasts were looking strange. I dont have enough cash to save up for new breasts, as I have a child and a car and house to run too. Ive felt really down about my breasts since I had my first love when I was 15. I do not at all feel attractive in the bedroom, so I have to have a bra on each time. its really frustrating and embarassing. And still, after 2 years in a relationship, I still cannot show him my breasts. Ive been trying different tactics but nothing seems to work... what can I do to solve this embarassing situation I am in? ... Please help?

    Hey, i'm 14, and im feeling very uncomfortable about my breasts, i've had a look at all the pictures and my breasts dont look like any of them. I'm a 36C and i've noticed that when i take my bra off my breasts droop, my aereola is quite big and seems to always be pointing down to the floor, i dont know if its because im young then when im older they'll perk up a bit, but i'm quite concerned. People tell me that smoking causes breasts to sag a little and im a smoker and have been for 4 years so i dont know if its true or not, i just dont feel that my breasts look right or not, im hoping to figure out if they look like any normal teenage breats, i hate feeling self-consious about my body especially that particular part. Will my breasts perk up as i get older or will they always be like this now?

    I am a 50 year old women and have always been 10AA cup.I have a loving husband and breast fed my 4 children for 6 months or more.When I started going out, most times I didn't think of the size of my breasts as a major negative in attracting some attention.If you can show off your good points,it will attract a person who likes you for you. If someone doesn't like you because of your breasts, they are not the person for you. It's hard putting your self out there when your younger, but believe me, there are people who will love you and find your breasts as sensual and beautiful as other breasts.

    'All the breast!!' don't you mean? ;-) Hehe. I get really down about being flat-chested sometimes (I mean, who wouldn't when every lads mag has these massive-boobed women plastered all over them).. My boyfriend assures me that it's not an issue but surely men can't deny that it's more attractive, as breasts are a sign of fertility in women. I've been through a lot of bras that generally seem to gape or dig in! However, the M&S strapless padded bras are an almost perfect shape for me (I am a 34A). These days I try to look at it in a positive way. It's a lot more athletic to be flat-chested and I won't have ugly, saggy boobs when I'm older. ;-) Overall.. just get a padded bra!!

    Hello, I'm 17 years old and I believe that I have tubular breasts. I have always felt that my breasts didn't look quite right - I did some research online and saw a resemblance between my breasts and pictures of women who suffer from tubular breasts. I feel extremely self conscious, and have done for years. I have really low self esteem, I can't bare to look at my breasts, I always break down into tears because it makes me feel so embarrassed. I went to see my local GP to discuss how I was feeling, even after an examination (which I found really hard to cope with) there was no mention of tubular breasts. I have recently been considering surgery, which is something that I never thought I'd do, but I really need to gain more confidence in myself, I'm sick and tired of being upset all the time. I believe that changing the appearance of my breasts will have a huge impact on my life. I'd really appreciate some advice or any recommendations of people that I can talk to. Thank you

    I had my breasts checked at my GP when I thought I had a lump, but she calmed my nerves by saying my breasts are naturally lumpy anyway! If you think there is a problem, have your breasts checked by a professional. If they tell you there is no problem, then keep an eye on your breasts from then on. Check at least once a month after you were referred. You'll get to know the feel of your breasts and if you notice any change, such as the appearance of a new lump, orange peel skin or a sudden inverted nipple, book another appointment at your GP's. Good luck! :)!

    i think i have tubular breasts, i feel very ashamed to show my breasts to anyone, i do not have confidence in my doctor to refere me to any where as i have discussed my breasts in the past and they basically laughed and told me to get a boob job £5000, i cant afford that is there any advise you can give as to who i can contact etc as this would make me feel less depressed about my breasts i would appreciate your guidance

    I can relate to most of the things said here. I have obsessed about the odd shape and smallness of my breasts. I have had two kids and breastfed both of them. My youngest is just a year and a half. I feel like my breasts are smaller now than ever. Except for when I'm first nursing (when they are quite large) I've never been above a B cup. I've always had low breasts, but now they are sagging more and have excess skin and hang thinly when I bend over. My breasts are also very widely spread, so I have almost no cleavage, even in low cut things. I constantly compare my breasts to other women's breasts, and get jealous of my friends with large breasts. But honestly, my sweet-sister women. Let's stop hating ourselves! So, Hollywood doesn't acknowledge that our breasts are beautiful. So let's stick it to 'em! Walk proud of our breasts--no matter how "non-traditional" they are. We are beautiful because we are ourselves. There is not one definition of beauty. We should love our bodies and ourselves. Don't be ashamed and hide your breasts. My husband thinks my breasts are beautiful, even though he acknowledges they are not "movie star" boobs. So let's find beauty in whatever shape, size or form our breasts are. Who is to say what is beautiful . . . if not us? Besides, though my breasts are sagging, small, and weirdly shaped, that certainly does not affect the pleasure I get when my husband touches them! Stop thinking plastic surgery is the answer. Let's start loving ourselves!

    I am fifteen and I believe I have tubular breasts. It's very upsetting and embarrassing, I don't feel normal at all. I had discovered this while looking at a website for girls to understand that their breasts are normal and come in all shapes and sizes. I was very happy at first and felt confident.. until they 'took a break' from regular boobs to educate girls on tubular breasts and that it was a deformity and not normal. The picture they showed seemed to be the worst possible case of tubular breasts, so I felt a tiny bit better of my own, but still. I feel so awful. I've always wondered why my breasts never grew since I started puberty or why I could never have cleavage.. The worst part is that I can't really get out of it. I don't like the thought of having surgery on my breasts. I don't want to think of myself as the girl with fake ot tubular breasts.

    It's fine to have small breasts. I didn't have decent sized breasts until I was 17 years old. Some women mature differently than others. B cup breasts are perfectly "feminine" too. You don't have to have huge boobs to be a woman. If you're 18, they probably won't get any bigger. But you're fine. I'm 5'8 and have D cup breasts, but they don't look overly large on me because of my height. You're fine hun. Keep on being happy. :P
