This blog is by people with breasts, for people with breasts. This blog is inclusive of all people with breasts, regardless of gender. It celebrates the beautiful diversity of breasts, of all sizes, shapes, colours, ages and races. Breasts are such an important and integral part of what makes us feel beautiful and sexual. By showing how all breasts are different, and uniquely special, we will be able to challenge the beliefs around what makes breasts beautiful. There is no single standard for breast beauty! By sharing photos we are demonstrating how every breast is different, and in turn, we will be able to help people with breasts feel better about themselves, improve self-esteem, and show that yes, you are normal.
NOTE: This blog shows photos depicting nudity in a non-sexual setting, and contains written content with adult themes. Photo submissions showing nudity are to be from people 18+ only.
Yes I do think small breasts can be extremely attractive, in the same way I think medium sized and large ones can be too. Basically boobs are attractive because they are boobs! And all breasts are fantastic, feminine, beautiful, welcoming, nurturing, sexual, sensual and utterly wonderful creations. And that sentiment is shared by many, many people. Why would anyone laugh at you for having a normal body with beautiful breasts? Large or small, it doesn’t matter one little bit.
I’m no expert, but I very seriously doubt that it had anything to do with it. You didn’t do anything wrong, apart from probably hurting your nipples at the time (ouch!) so stop worrying. Your nipples are exactly the way they were designed to be ad are perfect for your body.
How do they react to stimuli, like cold or sexual arousal? Do they pop out by themselves? They don’t have to to function as intended, including when breastfeeding.
I’ve recently had quite a few messages from girls worried about inverted nipples as well as what are often referred to as “puffy nipples”. It saddens me because they are awesome. I’d like to show how normal and beautiful they are. If you have puffy nipples or inverted nipples (something like the pictures here) then I’d like to hear from you, either as a text submission or with photos of your breasts. Thanks all.
I’m planning to update the look and feel of this blog, and it’s sister site, www.largelabiaproject.org. If you have experience with graphic design and designing for Tumblr, choosing and editing Tumblr templates, and are willing to donate your time and expertise, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s not a paid gig but your work will be credited and I’ll be ever so grateful :)
I recently ran a poll on my other blog, the Large Labia Project www.largelabiaproject.org, to see whether visitors and contributors to the blog wanted to see male comments published there. Like on Our Breasts, I rarely published what guys had to say. The poll though showed that 86% of people with labia who contributed to or visited the site wanted respectful and encouraging male comments shown, but on a separate page. This has now been added to the LLP.
Should the same thing happen here? Please let me know what you want by taking this poll. Women or people with female breasts only please. No CIS male responses will be considered.
Are you in Sydney, Australia, or located nearby? If you are a site visitor or contributor and would be interested in being photographed for an art gallery exhibition about breast and labia diversity, please let me know. I’ve talked a photographer friend of mine into putting this together. The photos would be anonymous close-ups of your breasts and your vulva if you’re comfortable doing that. There could also be a book produced depending on how the exhibition goes. If you’d like more information please email me at email@example.com.
Most girls and women have stretch marks, and they tend to show up on the breasts, thighs, hips, and bum. I won’t go into the details of how and why they happen, but it’s enough to know it often happens during times of rapid growth, like during puberty, or with weight gain. Stretch marks at first may show up as reddish or purplish lines that may appear indented like a groove and have a different texture from the surrounding skin. Fortunately, stretch marks often turn lighter and almost disappear over time. While they generally will fade, they will not vanish completely. You can’t make stretch marks go away. I know, the “over time” bit doesn’t help with low self-esteem right now though either.
There are a conflicting ideas about what does and doesn’t work in helping get rid of, disguise or minimise the appearance of them. Although there are tons of creams and other skin products on the market that claim to eliminate stretch marks, the truth is that most are ineffective and often costly. Some think that lotions, creams or other products can cover stretch marks up, and use creams with a retinoid, such as Retin-A, Renova, Tazorac or Differin to try to help them fade. Retinoids are thought to work by increasing collagen and elastin production in the skin. I don’t know if this works. Pregnant or nursing women, however, shouldn’t use products that contain retinoid. Although you may see creams containing peptide advertising the ability to repair stretch marks, there is little evidence to back up that claim.
Some people swear by Bio Oil and cocoa butter. It probably can’t hurt to use it - the worst case is you’ll have lovely soft skin.
Some people find that sunless self-tanners can help cover up stretch marks, or use make up to disguise it. Not such a useful idea if you’re in a bikini spending time in the water.
For extensive stretch marks, laser treatment can be a potential option, but not advisable as a teenager. Different types of lasers work best on distinct types of stretch marks. A dual laser approach may be best to take care of all your marks. You will see results in three to five sessions, but the marks will not go away. They may be too faint for anyone to notice but you, however. If you’re wondering how painful the treatment is, just be prepared for some mild bruising and swelling.
In the main though, you should know that you’re your own worst critic, so try not to worry about them. Nobody else will. And most people have them anyway.
