Anonymous asked: Hey, I'm 21 and recently I noticed that my breasts had grown to a 32B (I'm usually 32A) I don't take birth control and didn't gain any weight..help??
Sweety I’m not sure what help I can provide, or if indeed there is a problem needing help. It’s fairly common for breasts to continue to grow and changing shape into your early 20s. If it’s truly sudden change that’s occurred though, as with any part of your body, it’s best to have it checked out by your doctor as it could signify a problem or other.
Anonymous asked: So I'm 16 and I don't like my brests, I think that they're too small, I've 70B in brasize, but I don't even have a cleavage. But my question is, at which age does the best stop growing? My mom says they grow until you're about 20, but I still wonder, because I want my breast to be at least a little bigger.. I just want to feel more like a girl, if you know what I mean? And it seems like everyone else have much bigger breasts than me, and I'm afraid that mine to grow at all :(
Thanks for writing. Bodies do continue to change and grow throughout puberty and for some young women that can mean into their early 20s. So you never know.
Believe me, not everyone around you has bigger boobs. You just seem more aware of them because it’s something you’re obsessing over, too focused to notice the huge variety that exists. If you can learn anything from this blog it’s that breasts come in all shapes and sizes, and regardless of their size they are beautiful and feminine.
You may continue to dislike them, which is a shame, but please try to be open minded about yourself and how normal yours are.
Chin up honey, you’re fine.
The following are updated submission guidelines for any photo contribution to OurBreasts. I will soon post them to the site submission page.
Make A Submission Here
This blog is by women, for women, and that forms the basis of the submission guidelines for the site. I will only publish photos and stories submitted by females, so please only submit your own photos of your own breasts.
If you are a husband, boyfriend or partner, please DO NOT submit photos of your wife or girlfriend or any other female. If they wish to participate then please ask them to do it directly. Their story, opinion and self-image is more powerful and valuable when submitted themselves than when filtered through your male perspective. I also need to verify that permission has been given for those photos to be posted. I will have to write to you for more information and have direct contact with the owner of the breasts - a tiresome and tedious process so please just don’t do it.
Ladies your photos can be of your breasts, either fully naked, or wearing a bra or bikini top (not just frontal mug-shot style) to show the breasts from the side, at 45°, lying down, hanging down etc and at different times in your menstrual cycle. It is also good to show the significant differences in appearance between naked and clothed breasts, so bra photos are very welcome, especially as bra sizes and styles change from maker to maker and country to country.
Photos should be focused on the breasts and upper body alone, and not show your face. Full nudes will be edited to only show the breasts and chest/ torso area. If you wish to contribute photos of your labia minora please visit www.largelabiaproject.org
To submit, please upload photos or email me directly at OurBreasts@gmail.com. Please don’t use the Tumblr feature to link to a photo URL as that often fails to work.
Please remove any iPhone geotagging (location information) or other photo EXIF data (meta tags) before submitting. If you can’t or don’t know how, don’t worry, I routinely do this to protect contributor privacy.
I will edit photos to remove faces and where possible will remove identifying marks like body piercings and tattoos etc to maintain anonymity.
By submitting photos through the site or by email you warrant that you are the owner of the photos or their copyright, that they are legally able to be used, holding Emma and any person associated with OurBreasts blameless in the event of a copyright breach.
For comparison and contrast it is very welcome to have photos shot from different angles
The Tumblr blog platform allows other logged in Tumblr users to republish photos. This is an inherent feature of Tumblr and sadly cannot be diasbled. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of other blogs (sometimes very sexually focused blogs) reposting your images, then please carefully consider whether you submit. Where possible I will remove reblogs on unsavoury sites or where unwelcome / sleazy additional text has been added. However consider that if your submission on OurBreasts is sufficiently anonymous to start with then there’s no real drama.
If you are contributing your own photos via your own Tumblr, be aware that unless you specifically post it anonymously your submission will show as coming from your blog. That is often undesirable. If you wish to remain anonymous then keep this in mind. I usually do check and verify though with a private message and will post it anonymously if requested, but it’s easier to state up front “Anonymous Please!”
Nude? 18+ only please!
Under 18s are very welcome to submit questions and comments, and clothed photos, in bras or bikinis, and even super-discreet “hand bras” as long as there is no visible nipple or areola. I don’t want either of us involved in some child pornography drama or provide fap fodder to the ranks of perverts out there. I will never publish naked breast photos from under 18s, or even pass photos on to the doctors who help out, so please don’t send them to me. Wait until you’re 18yo.
Webfinds or “ex-gf pics”, photos looking like they are taken from naked selfies sites, photos that are pornographic or overly sexual in nature, including B&D styled clothing or toys, photos of CIS “manboobs” or other body parts, will be automatically deleted.
Submissions being used to blatantly advertise another site, such as a porn site, or an adult / exhibitionist will not be allowed. I will ask you to submit with logos, URLs and link backs removed and that your contribution is done as “civilian”.
Where the model has a question about her legal age, or where there are any questions I need answers to i will endeavour to make contact using the lodgement email address. However as submissions can be made completely anonymously, if there isn’t a functioning email address (they can be bogus addresses set up just for submitting to my sites) then the submission will be deleted.
Anonymous asked: i'm only 14 and i'm actually really worried about my boobs because like one is probably almost a cup size smaller than the other and i'm afraid they're not going to even out and like i'm just so worried that they won't??
You’ve still got quite a lot of growing to do yet so it’s a bit of a lottery. Breasts don’t necessarily grow at the same rates, and they may catch up and be the same size by the time you’re 18 or so. But it’s also very common for boobs to be different sizes. Most fully grown women’s boobs are asymmetric to be honest, though it’s all by a matter of degrees.
Differences of a cup size or more are hardly uncommon, though they are a pain in the arse when it comes to getting bras to fit. There’s one online manufacturer that sells custom bras with different cup sizes, but for a more balanced look lots of girls go for the standard padded bra, and remove the padding from the side with the larger boob.
It’s all purely cosmetic. There’s nothing physically wrong, and when the time comes guys (and girls) don’t care and seem to enjoy two types of boobs for the price of one, so to speak.
Anyway, don’t despair, and see what growth your body has in store for you. You’re a normal girl and you’re far from being alone. Chin up honey :)
Anonymous asked: I think it's really cool that you edit out tattoos. That's been one of the reasons I haven't submitted a photo.
I try but it’s not always possible. And some contributors don’t want them removed - their call. It’s always best if the photos are submitted ready to post, including having picture metadata and iPhone geotagging removed too. I do this anyway but it’s just one more thing for me to worry about.
Anonymous asked: Do you post all submitted photos? If you don't, which would you not post?
I don’t publish naked breast photos that:
- are nude photos from under 18s. Under 18s can post photos clothed in bras or bikinis, and even discreet hand bras as long as there is no visible nipple or areola.
- look like webfinds or “ex-gf pics”.
- look like they are taken by naked selfies sites.
- are submitted by husbands or boyfriends (I am amending the submission guidelines for this).
- are pornographic or overly sexual in nature.
- where the model has a question about her legal age.
- where there are any questions I need answers too but there are no contact details. Submissions can of course be submitted completely anonymously, but if there isn’t a functioning email address (they can be bogus addresses set up just for submitting to my sites after all) then there’s a risk it will be deleted.
- are being used to blatantly advertise another site, such as a porn site, or another Tumblr where it’s an annoyingly cynical attempt to get followers for their porn or exhibitionist blogs. If this is you, or you’re on porn sites, please submit as a “civilian” and leave off the logos and link backs.
- are from CIS men of manboobs or other body parts.
- of really bad picture quality that just aren’t fit for publication.
I will edit photos to remove faces and full nude bodies, to focus primarily on the breasts, and remove identifying marks like body piercings and tattoos, where possible to maintain anonymity.
ladylickerforfun asked: Wow reading your blog made me realize my boobs are really beautiful, one has always been a little bigger then the other and I always was self conscious about them because they felt like they were a mile apart. Thank you for your blog " Feeling normal again " :o)
Anonymous asked: I have noticed in recent years that my breasts have quite dark blue veins at the top (def not stretch marks, I have white ones of those underneath!) It's got to the point now where I don't want to wear low cut tops or anything because they're very visible. I know there's nothing I can do about them but from a health point of view, I'm slightly concerned. Or is it just a part of getting older? (I'm 28)
Well you mightn’t like their appearance, but well our human bodies have veins all over the body.
You can see veins any where in the body because veins are only present in the upper layer. So with that in mind and having seen photos of all the natural looking breasts here, you’ll be seeing that you’re perfectly normal - every women breast have veins.
Anonymous asked: Hey emma! i've been watching your two blogs (large labia project and our breasts) for a long time and i have to say, you're doing a wonderful work :)! Im 16 and i've been told that my breasts are really small several times. I know they are and i really don't like them, but your blogs have really encouraged me :). Thank you!
Anonymous asked: Sorry to ask again. However I had another question. Whenever I get fitted, I'm told I'm a smaller size than what I am wearing. Like a cup size or 2. I try on that size and I become the bra lol. In other words the bra is too small. But it's like when I'm measured with a nonpadded bra I'm like a 34. But if I measure my breasts nude my nipples point out enough to be either a 36 or 37. Why is this?
Honestly I’m no expert in bra fitting, and I’ve given up doing it myself because I’ve got a strangely shaped chest - but a rule of thumb is that if the bra isn’t comfortable then it’s the wrong size and you shouldn’t wear it. If they are being fitted by experienced professionals then I’d trust their judgement, but again, only if it feels comfortable. Make sure your fitter knows what they are doing.
Don’t get hung up on the actual size. It’s not a value judgement, and bra size doesn’t define who you are. The main thing is to get it right. Your boobs will look and feel better for it. That said, I think we’d all be better off if we didn’t wear bras at all. It’s healthier for our boobs, promotes stronger ligaments and less sagging, and just feels so much better. I go braless as often as I can - pity I can’t at work. Stupid society lol.
Best of luck.
Anonymous asked: Hey I'm nick a 36B and was wondering if I could post one or two pics with clothing? Because I have no nudes. I took a picture once with my hands over my nipples but that was it. And I lost that picture. So is it possible I could post a non-nude?
Yes of course you can post with clothes on, though of course it won’t be as easy to see your boobs haha. Photos in bras and swimwear are very welcome, because breasts look so different when naked compared to when they have a bra on.
