I think everyone should see this website. The 007b project is an awareness campaign about boobs!

It wants people to know what normal is. That is: there IS no normal! They have a gallery of breasts, that lets you see just what everyone else's boobs look like.

Now, naturally, be careful before clicking this link. It's obviously NSFW! However, it's purely clinical, and not at all pornographic. Just boobs. Click on the "Normal breasts gallery" on the main menu.

Pretty much all of them are lopsided. :) That's because human bodies are asymmetrical by nature. We're stronger on one side, more balanced on one side, even "more attractive" on one side.

Want to see what a symmetrical face looks like? You wouldn't recognize yourself if you had one. ;)

Yeah, I noticed that the first 3 months I was into my journey (about a year ago). I had lost around 25 pounds and it was a little disturbing to me but I just blew it off. Now, I am close to my goal and they are both the same. They will even out as you go through your weightloss journey. This happens all around your body too, so don't be alarmed. At one point, one of my legs were bigger than the other. I was freaking out but I'm okay now and so are my!

I have never really paid attention to mine so I don't know if they are even or not, but I have heard that it is normal for them to be uneven. You can always talk to your doctor about your concerns. In the mean time I would get a good bra.

I work as a traveling resthome helper, helped many people take baths and believe me there are not many people whom are perfectly balanced..

Breasts, fingers, and ankles can be different is size- the worse thing I see at the gym is young men with huge upper bodies whom ignore their lower body and don't see it in their own mirror how uneven they have made their bodies with own hands....

I was very lopsided when I was still nursing, and someone actually told me about it! That was... weird... anyway, I know people could see it, but that one guy was I bought one of those silicone inserts for my smaller side and I felt less self-conscious.

I am more evened out now, but if I was still noticably uneven, I don't think there's anything wrong with having it fixed surgically. It's not a vanity thing - someday I'm going to get my tummy fixed, and I don't think there's anything vain about that, either.

Mine have always been uneven, but since I started dropping the lbs, it's more noticeable, and a bit shocking!

Ha ha I blogged about exactly this problem, not too long ago. While bathing-suit-shopping, I tried on this one particular style that had a row of big buttons up the front, which really emphasized a LOT, just how much larger "to the left of the buttons" was vs the side to the right.

It was the first time I really noticed the vast discrepancy between them - which I do believe has been heightened by recent weight loss, but I hope will even out a bit, eventually.

Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

Very very few women have perfectly symmetrical breasts. As others noted, most of us are some what, lopsided. ;)

Don't worry ! This really is perfectly normal.

Here is a link that will show you how uneven some are, and it isn't as uncommon as you may think!

I am a family doctor, I do ALOT of breast exams. Nearly every woman has asymmetric breasts. And as fate would have it, many women lose weight off their breasts first which accentuates the problem. It may even out but if not, a good bra generally makes it less noticeable.

I used to work in a well-known lingerie store. I have fitted may people for bras, and let me assure you, breasts are almost always uneven (even fake ones). If it makes you feel any better, women usually exaggerate in their minds how much of a difference there is between the two breasts. So, it may not be as much as you think it is.

Hi ClassyClam,

I remember in sex ed they told us that it was normal for one breast to develop larger than the other one. They assured us it would even out. Now I am 31 and mine never evened out, and my sister confided in me that HERS never evened out, either. So I guess there's a lot of one-bigger-than-the-others out there.

so i was looking in the mirror today and i noticed that one of my breasts is larger than the other. noticeably so that when they are in the bra one is popping out and the other is fitting nicely. i would guess and say there is about a 2 inch hanging difference in them. one has always been a little smaller than the other but this is more noticeably.

is this normal? will this eventually even out? i am still in the first few weeks of my journey...

thanks for the help!!!
