Understanding the Shape and Size of Your Breast

8 Mar

Over the course of a woman’s lifetime, her breasts can change considerably. While some of these changes are due to childbirth and the normal aging process, other changes occur due to your health and lifestyle.

The more support you give your growing breasts, the larger they will grow. This is why women who consistently wear a bra while they were young will have more-developed breasts than other young women. This can be seen in parts of the world where girls go topless.

Other factors that can affect your breasts are your climate, genetics, and your lifestyle, and as we mentioned above the support your breasts are given while growing also contribute.

Breast Shapes and Genetic Factors

It is important to understand that no woman has identical breasts and most women have one breast which is larger than the other.

We talked about breast shapes in this article here: Breast Shapes, but there are other genetic factors which can affect your breast shape. Breasts have been classified into shapes and normal conditions by medical professionals.

Types of Breasts

The perfect breast shape can be classified as a breast which is well toned and does not droop or sage. The nipple will protrude straight out and is parallel to the ground. It is actually very rare for any woman to have the perfect breast shape and is normally associated with those who have undergone a breast augmentation.

Sagging breasts are those which are classified as drooping towards the ground and where the nipples point in a downwards direction. If this occurs in young women, it is usually because their breasts have not received enough support while growing.

Swooping breasts are ones which slightly bend inwards to your breast bone. This shape of a breast normally results in nipples which tend to point in an upwards direction.

Small breasts are just breasts that do not have a lot of fatty tissue. Women with small breasts have small nipples and very little cleavage. Breast and cleavage size are two of the main reasons why women want to increase their breast size and use breast enlargement methods.

Large breasts are those with large amounts of fatty tissue and women with this shape will have much larger nipples. If you have large breasts it is important to wear a good fitting bra for support.

Tubular breasts can be seen as an abnormality. This type of breast is very thin and has very small nipples. The nipple can actually be very pointy and show through your clothing easily. This shape is often referred to as an egg shape.

Pigeon breasts are another abnormality and this is when the breasts lay flat against the chest and extend downwards. This condition is associated with a congenital defect and can be corrected by a skilled surgeon.
