7 Reasons You Shouldn’t Stress About Uneven Breasts

If you’ve ever realized, completely out of nowhere, that your boobs are different sizes, you probably got a little bit freaked out. One day you’re sitting around, not even really thinking about your boobs, and the next day you’re looking in the mirror and you see it – OMG! They’re not the same! And if this has never happened to you, sorry… you’re probably going to check ‘em out right now.

But really, what’s the big deal about uneven breasts? Oh, right… it’s not a big deal at all! Uneven breasts are a part of life, as weird as that may sound, and there’s no reason to feel ashamed of them. I once knew a girl who had really uneven boobs and it was something she told everyone. No one even cared. We were all just like, “Oh yeah, that’s Stacy. Her boobs are different sizes. Whatever.”

But since we know it can be difficult to deal with these kinds of things sometimes, we put together a few reasons why having uneven boobs is nothing to stress over. Check them out:

Do you have uneven breasts? Do you know anyone who does? Would you ever consider getting plastic surgery to fix them? Tell us in the comments.

    So I have a b cup and (barely) an a cup. I noticed this not too long ago and I’m really self conscious about it, despite the fact a lot of people deal with the same thing. I’m only 14 so *hopefully* things will even out but for now I’m too scared to tell anyone at school despite the fact there are people I can tell! Me and my older sister often joke about it (she’s 17 and she calls them big cook little cook!!!! :’D) but honestly I’m worried that they’re going to stay like this and I really don’t want to consider surgery :( anyone got any ideas how I could cover it up a little??

      I have the exact same problem! I noticed about a year or so ago and i’m really embarrassed about it, so I haven’t told anyone. To cover it up I take the insert from a swimsuit and put in the cup of the smaller one. It’s a temporary fix, but I hope that they do eventually even out!

    I first noticed after I developed around 11 years old or so, I have one C and one D. I buy a D bra and tug the bigger breast’s strap up so no one will notice. It works pretty well. I was so embarrassed by it that I never wanted to be completely naked during sex. I’d think of ways to keep either my bra or shirt on. Then I learned that two of my cousin’s I’m close to as well as my Mom all have the same issue. My cousin’s are straight forward about it, my Mom just doesn’t care, so she doesn’t talk about it, but I’m still really conscious about it. I continuously hide the fact while in public, but at home I couldn’t care less. My last boyfriend actually loved it, but it took a long time for me to feel comfortable around him enough to be topless.

    Well I have uneven boobies too.(you can clearly see the difference) I hated them so much, but 1,5 years ago I met my boyfriend and he doesn’t mind it at all. He’s very cool about it and I really think almost every man or woman won’t mind. They are boobs and they need to be loved, and cuddled.

    I’ll always be self-conscience about my breasts, at least until I have the money to get them fixed, which I heard that some plastic surgeons can take fat from other areas of the body and inject it into your breasts, instead of going the fake route. I started noticed that I was lopsided when I was around 10 years old and got worried even then about it. Once I hit high school and I was fully developed, I noticed that my right one is an A cup and my left is a C cup, which made me not feel good about myself. I even had a friends boyfriend back then say something about it, because it is noticeable through clothing. Even my high school boyfriend (with whom I was on again off again after high school) would joke around and say “well, at least I can decide which one I feel like touching depending on my mood.” It’s gotten to the point where it was always hard to be intimate with men, because I didn’t want them to judge my breasts. I even have a hard time being naked with my current boyfriend and I’ve been living with him for well over a year, and don’t get me started about sleeping with him, because I have a hard time being on top because of it. Once time we were just joking around in the kitchen and he grabbed a big pot lid and a small pot lid, held the big one over my bigger breast and the small one over my smaller breast and said “look, they fit perfectly!” Even though he wasn’t trying to be mean and didn’t think it would bother me so much, I wanted to die right then and there, because that was the moment I realized that he had noticed it. I’m 25 years old and would like to have children one day, but I heard that when you do have kids, the bigger one will get even bigger than it is now, and I don’t want to go through life being more lopsided than I already am.

    So I’m 16. I have an A (barely) cup and a C cup. My friend first pointed it out in the changing rooms in p.e. I finally recently decided to see a doctor after waiting a few years to see if they’d even out.. The doctor said I should have free surgery and were trying to talk me into surgery because it’s free. But I politely turned it down (although I was close to slapping him across the face because he wouldn’t stop trying to force me into it) all my friends think I’m crazy as I have 1 boob and 1… Well, nothing/just a nipple boob and turned down free breast surgery! But even though I hate my body, I’m afraid to show people my breast or get changed in front of people and I wear baggy tops to hide the fact I have strange boobs and I can’t wear bras or bikinis right…. I still love my body and I promised myself I’d never do anything to it that’s artificial! Everyone should love their body no matter what and if I eventually find an intimate partner, they’ll just have to deal with the problem. It’s their problem not mine! I almost had one but he turned round and said “sorry, I only like girls with big boobs because they’re better for sex” (this is a guy who’s never had sex who’s never even had a girlfriend) and people like that need to realise how it makes people feel! If you have unequal boobs don’t let people get you down and don’t think that surgery is your only option! I’m still hopeful that one day I’ll have at least something on my left side but until then I’m perfectly happy to wait and let nature do it’s thing..

      I know exactly how you feel I have a b cup & a DD cup & what I do is Victoria’s Secret & even walmart & some other places might. They’re the little silicone things a lot of girls wear to make their breast seem larger & I just take both of them that come in the pack in on once side & it gives me even cleavage to where you wouldn’t notice it. I’m still even having those I get very very self conscious when it comes to being intimate with someone.. Even wear bikini tops I have to get the expensive Victoria’s Secret one to be able to fit my right one & then have my silicone things in & not be able to tell. It takes a toll on you to have two different sized breasts. I still hate them & I’m really leaning towards getting them evened out just for my personal self.

    I grew up with pretty uneven breasts. As a preteen when I started developing, until my late teen years it negatively impacted my self esteem. I wore large shirts to cover up the fact that if I wore tight ones it was noticeable. I always kept it to myself and learned online that it was normal and lots of women have this issue. It was embarrassing and still makes me self conscience at times. I eventually discovered padded bras and could use padding in just one cup and it wasn’t noticeable with a bra on anymore. Now in my mid 20s they have evened out quite a bit on their own, I can still notice a difference but my partner hardly sees it. The pain and embarrassment psychologically takes a toll on a girl and it is always the first thing I notice when I look at myself naked. I used to hide my breasts from sexual partners but over the years I have learned to embrace that everyone is beautiful, if we didn’t have imperfections then everyone would look the same and that’s boring. Being different doesn’t have to be a bad thing, even the most famous, beautiful people have ugly toes, saggy bums, or crooked noses and that’s okay.

    My left boob is a F cup and my right an E cup. Everytime Im in bed with a guy I always point out my different sized boobs and most of the time the guys dont notice and they say “boobs are boobs no matter what size”..when I was younger I was self conscious but then I got more comfortable..I now point them out to new friends and we have a good laugh about it :) make jokes about it. So anyone who has the same problem as me..sweetie just own your different size boobs! Most people wont notice till you point them out :P

  8. avatarMiss Positive says:

    Why are the comments so negative? I loved this article. Love your body, it will never be perfect, but it’s unique. If your partner cares, it isn’t real love anyway.

  9. avatarfriend says:

    dude, i have the same story…. i freaked out…. you know? i felt like i was some kind of freak. but then i asked my mother about this through a lot of effort and she was like; are friggin kiddin me? that is completely normal. just some people have more difference in sizes than others but still…. completely normal. in fact…. you are not going to believe me when i say this but: girls with even breasts are less than girls with uneven breasts… yeah its true. no reason to get freaked out.. i felt really dumb after being all: i am never going to get married. i felt really stupid. cause its a normal thing. so to all those who think they are disfigured just because they have breasts which aren’t the same size: you are totally wasting your time.

  10. avatarruined says:

    Will never ever have a normal life…those who say its no big deal obviously are not going through this.

  11. avatarZara says:

    My boobs are pretty similar sizes but are very lopsided ie my left one is a lot lower than my right. It is not noticeable when I wear a bra but I am very self conscious about it in front of my partner. Is it possible to have surgery so that they are even?

  12. avatarSomeone Who Knows says:

    I just have to say, not to sound like a bitch, but, notice how all the women saying its no big deal, don’t have this problem. You don’t know what its like to be physically deformed, of course its easy for you to say “no one cares! get over yourself!”. you don’t have to be afraid every time you meet someone new and they haven’t seen you yet, if they will make fun of you to all their buddies afterwords. you don’t know the shame you feel when your body is so obviously imperfect in a world that only cares about perfection. and your only hope, your only option, is to have a life-changing surgery. you have three options in this: make your larger breast smaller and be flat chested. make your smaller breast larger and have irregular looking breasts that feel different and you still look deformed. option three, dont change anything and forever be tormented, hiding your body like you had some disgusting disease.
    my point in all this, if you don’t have this problem, you have no room to talk about it being no problem. until you have some disfigurement that makes you stand out as a freak, don’t go on some list of things you think we should feel. i have a beautiful body, i know that. but i would give anything to not have my breasts the way they are. its a nightmare, its degrading, and its damn near impossible to have a normal, healthy sex life. it doesn’t matter if there’s people out there who dont care about it, there’s always the shallow opinion that follows you and tears you down. enough said.

    • avatarWorstCcritic says:

      I totally agree. Someone Who Knows. As a child going through puberty I always felt abnormal. I hid myself well. To the outside world I was this happy girl but I wasnt. I felt like no one would understand so I never even talk about my sadness to anyone. a person who I thought was a friend notice it one day. And months later I found out that she told a few people. I was so ashamed. One day my mom noticed while I was outside playing and kinda chuckled a bit and took me to her friend to look at me and comfirm that she is seeing this. My mom told me to tuck my shirt it so they could get a better look. Her friend told her that its normal but I was ready to just die. I took off running back outside and tried to not let it bother me. I would tell myself that it just has to catch up and that im still growing. I noticed that it kida got better but I always noticed. I noticed that it psychology messed me up a bit. I always and to hide myself in some way

I always had to hide myself in some way. I was always looking down at my chest to make sure that it wasnt noticeable. When comes to me being intimate with someone it has to be dark and no touching of the boobs to much cuz I fear that he would notice and laugh at me. I am my harshest critic. I have good days and I have bad days, on those bad days I would say “Okay Biggie Smalls am I gonna have any trouble out of you today.” I try to make light out of it to keep me from getting to depressed about being flawed. Im glad im not alone.

    • avatarLou says:

      Yes this is very true. My own mother is very frivolous about my breast problem, telling all her friends about it and making jokes. But it is completely humiliating – she has never known how it feels to have a deformity. We are not talking about ‘not being perfect’ or gorgeous, this is about being a balanced and normal body. What I remember from before my surgery was the difference in weight, just having this one huge breast flopping around.

      I have to say, surgery was pretty life changing, but I still feel like a freak with one plastic boob, and people who know about it still treat me funny. So yeah, I agree. People who just don’t know should shut up.

    I HAVE SEEN MANY BREASTS IN MY TIME. NOT ALL ARE THE SAME. ONLY A
    VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE OF WOMEN HAVE PERFECT ONES. DON’T BE
    ASHAMED. THAT’S THE WAY GOD CREATED YOU. ENJOY

  14. avatarMariah says:

    My boyfriend asked me if I would ever consider getting surgery. To either make one bigger or one smaller. I said, I would rather get a breast augmentation and have aesthetically perfect breasts. They may not feel as warm and cushy, but at least they would look nice and I wouldn’t have to be ashamed to be naked.

  15. avatarNatalie says:

    You guys, it’s no big deal! my sister has uneven boobs, all she does to hide ‘em a little is wear big tops, and if you’re really that self- concious about them, wear a bra in the larger one’s size, and put a removeable stuffer inside. But you shouldn’t be self concious in the first place- you are perfect the way you are!

  16. avatarkaren says:

    Actually it is waaaaay common. It’s like eyes, they are different in size or shape from each other, sometimes noticeable, sometimes not and it doesn’t mean a thing, They are boobs, they’re awesome.

  17. avatarGrapes says:

    Im 18 and have no boobs what do i do ……. its been a huge prob for me i havent bee able 2 wear swimwear in publiv without feeling uncomfortable please help!

    • avataralex says:

      You should not even worry about it, having big breast isn’t all its cracked up to be. I have big breast for my small frame and sometimes i feel uncomfortable in certain outfits. You shouldn’t be ashamed of having small breast don’t feed into the media….

  18. avatarBecca says:

    Thanks for posting this! I was feeling really self conscious about my boobs as one is larger than the other. It was really getting me down but now I’m feeling a whole lot better about it! I had NO idea that Jennifer Lawrence had asymmetrical boobs! Thanks a lot xxx
