Is it normal for girls to have uneven sized boobs? My right boob is way smaller than my left one, and this can be seen clearly no matter what I’m wearing. It’s bugging my self-esteem a lot. Am I totally weird? Please help.
To make this answer super short: yes, it’s totally normal to have different sized boobs. Now, that doesn’t mean that every single girl out there has two different sized breasts. It also doesn’t mean that every girl with this issue has a drastic difference in the size of their boobies. It might be just a slight difference for some ladies, and a little bit of greater difference for others. There’s nothing weird about this, girl!
There’s also no reason to let your unevenly sized breasts bring down your self-esteem. Want to know a secret? Unless your boobs are drastically different, like a full cup size or more, you’re most likely the only person who has noticed this difference. Sometimes, we can be our own worst enemies. When you’re studying your body in your mirror, you’re being critical and you’re going to notice every little thing. But the people around you are probably not studying your body that way – and if they are, well, that’s kind of creepy.
If you’re worried about dudes noticing your different sized boobs, don’t be. If a guy is seeing you naked, he’s most likely so stoked that your top is off that he’s not wondering, “Hm, is the right one a little too small?” Don’t worry about other girls pointing out the difference either – chances are, most of them are experiencing the same exact thing.
All of that being said, if you feel like there really is a huge difference in size and it’s making you that uncomfortable, you could possibly consider plastic surgery in the future. However, plastic surgery is a huge deal and not something that can easily be reversed. As a teen, your body isn’t fully developed yet, and your boobs could even out on their own. Give it some time and don’t make any quick decisions.
The best thing to do is to rock your uneven boobies. If someone does notice, just shrug it off. There’s no need to feel weird about this at all, because you’re definitely not alone. And it’s not something you should feel like you have to point out either. Like I said before, I bet you no one notices this but you.
