When you first start growing boobs–or, if you are anything like me, far before you start growing boobs but notice that everyone else around you seems to be growing boobs–they can seem pretty mysterious. This, if you think about it, is fair enough. Most of the signifiers of puberty, like new body hair, acne, and new, weird scents suddenly being emitted from your body can seem confusing, and, at some points, pretty scary.
Due to this overwhelming(ish) mystery of boobs, it is unsurprising, perhaps, that a lot of rumors about breasts have been proliferating for a number of years. You know, the ones your friends say knowingly in locker rooms or slumber parties, that might not sound quite right, but, hey, what do you know? But, as it turns out, many of these myths are fairly simple to disprove. So, check out these weird boob myths you probably believe (that, you know, you should do your very best stop believing soon):
