Women's breast shapes: 12 different types and shapes of breasts
Every woman has a unique body, that's how we were created. Comparing our bodies, looks or features with anybody else does not do us any good. Our body is unique, and while we aspire to be like another woman, it is vital to remember that what's important is to actually accept our bodies in all their different forms.
According to studies, about 50% of women have this breast shape, hence the name. Even most bras designs are made based on this shape, which is of course problematic because women with different breast shapes do not feel comfortable wearing most bras. The common breast shape is full, round and with small nipples.
2. Bell shape
Well, this breast shape got its name because it takes the shape of a bell. The width of the breast from the top is small, while the shape of the breast ar the bottom is round and very full.
It is very similar to the bell shape, but with a difference in size. It is very thin at the top and rounded and slightly plumper at the bottom. The nipples are located a little higher, not at the bottom of the breast.
Girls who have this shape of breasts often think that they should be working out more or something, so that they can lift the appearance of their breasts. But the the truth is that it's not about fitness, it's simply their natural shape. The skin is soft, and the nipples look down.
5. East West
The name explains this perfectly. The nipples point outwards in different directions.
6. Close Set
Simply put, these breasts are very close together, and there is very little space between them. There is more distance between the breast and armpit.
7. Conical breasts
This breast shape can be described as similar to the shape of the cone. It is also a very common shape, but among women with small breasts.
You must have heard girls talk about how one breast is bigger than the other. Well, it's completely normal. According to studies, half of women have one breast that is larger than the other.
As indicated by the name, the breasts are completely round, which means that their size at the top is exactly the same as the bottom.
Here the breast is very thin in its entirety, but it is longer than all the previous types. The nipples also look down.
In contrast to sagging breasts, this type is very athletic in appearance, with more muscle and less breast tissue, which makes it appear tighter, and it is also wider than all the other types.
12. Side Set
Unlike close set breasts, here the breasts are closer to the armpits, making them more distant from the other with more space between them.
So, are these the only breast shapes out there?
Of course not. There are endless breast shapes and sizes. But what we've mentioned are some of the common ones. But if you have a breast shape that is not mentioned in this list, that's also perfectly normal.
How do I know if the shape of breasts is abnormal, and can their appearance be changed?
1. As long as you don't have any pain, burning, lumps, or other painful and uncomfortable symptoms, then your breast shape is probably normal.
2. If the shape of the nipple or breast changes suddenly, then you should definitely immediately check with your doctor.
3. The shape of the breast sometimes changes when transitioning into puberty, as well as during pregnancy and if you're breastfeeding. All these changes are natural and most women go through them, but if you're not sure you can always check with your doctor.
4. Exercise can help maintain the appearance of the breasts and avoid sagging, but remember that working out will not change the original breast shape.
5. Creams and remedies, for increase of reduction of the breast size, are just myths and not true. They could tighten the breasts a little and help with sagging, but the only way to change the shape and size of the breast is through surgery.
