My boobs are two different sizes. One of them is practically a full cup size bigger than the other one. Do guys care about this? It makes me feel really self-conscious.
Before I get into what guys think, I want to let you in on a little secret: not only is breast asymmetry not uncommon – it’s almost more common than not! If that’s a little confusing, let me put it this way: nearly half of all women exhibit at least some degree of visible asymmetry. A 2011 study in the European Journal of Plastic Surgery that examined over 300 breast augmentation patients found that only 53.5 percent of the women had equally sized breasts. And the British Channel 4 program Embarrassing Bodies reported that up to 40 percent of women may exhibit a 1-2 cup size asymmetry. So above everything else, you should know that you’re totally normal.
With that said, any guy who notices your imbalance and makes a “mountain out of a molehill” (for lack for lack of a better analogy) isn’t someone you’ll want to go out with in the long run. The good news is that most guys do know this is pretty typical and won’t mind at all. I once dated a girl whose breasts were about a cup size different and after a brief joke or two and a quick Google search, I never thought much about it again. Just remember that no one is going to be harder on you than you! No guy will micro-analyze every little detail of your body like you do.
We all have physical flaws, and any guy you date won’t be without his own. Megan Fox has clubbed thumbs, Bradley Cooper has a third nipple, and you (and Jennifer Lawrence) happen to have uneven boobs. It’s only proves that you’re human!
