Women come in all shapes and sizes. I feel not pretty sometimes because I do not have perky, even breasts.

I feel better about myself after seeing this site. NSFW due to real unclothed breasts. It makes me understand I am more beautiful for being myself than anything different and no one is perfect.

That's a good site. It's true that the vast majority of breasts we see are artificial, or at least selected for 'perfection' and that's not really how the world is.

I consider myself pretty damn confidant of myself and my appearance, but it's still a struggle at times to not fall into those mental traps where our brains tell us we are inadequate.

I'll have to check this out when my kids aren't around. LOL. It's so true, though, that the breasts people see in the media are seen as "perfect," or "ideal." It makes those of us who don't have big, round breasts feel deficient. Plus, I think it makes men have unrealistic expectations and want to go looking for their image of perfection.

Why not let your kids see? Let them grow up with a healthy image of what breasts are like

Rapid growth, the weight of them, hormones (period swelling) and weight fluctuations will do it.

I am far from "perky" but I had a C cup at 13 and a 32DD now. I never remember being "perky". My weight has done crazy fluctuations from almost 115 to 140 to under 100 in about two years. (medication made me gain then I stopped it and then I was stressed leaving husband) I also have developed a cyst in one so it is slightly bigger.

I am looking for a man who want a woman who looks like a real person, not a nipped and tucked blow up doll.

I think I would cry every day if my breasts looked like some of those.

It's funny how your breasts change over time. Before I had children, I thought mine were more on the small side (I was small all over). After children and breastfeeding, they seemed kind of deflated, but a little heavier. And now in middle age, having gained some weight, they seem fine. Not perky, but womanly. I'm a 34D. I like that I can still heft them up for special occasions

I think I would get over it. Unless the crying you speak of is from severe back pain or something, then I guess I'd get a surgery and experience less tear-inducing pain.

But really, I think the boob shots straight on like that are not complimentary.

The really big ones, and the extreme lopsided ones would make me cry. I happen to absolutely adore my body and it's proportions exactly how it is, as I believes my boobs are proportioned and shaped absolutely perfect - for me -. I'm sure if I was born with some of those I would be OK with it, after a long long time, but good lord I would not be instantly happy.

I think the point is that they are all just trying, against all odds, to be happy with what they have. It's good that you are, but you are a minority. :-\\

I'm glad you're happy now.
But they will change with time, I promise, so don't get caught up in what's perfect and what isn't - the important thing is to accept yourself through life's changes.

This reminds of of the Great Wall of Vaginas project/sculpture. (I'm not sure if I can post the link.)

It's very cool that all these women were willing to volunteer to share their stories and their bodies to help others feel comfortable with their own.

I'm kind of in a similar boat, my breasts are my favourite body part.


However, I have plenty of other insecurities physically, and this is a nice reminder that we are all so different. It's important to find acceptance from within. I know far too many beautiful women who feel ugly and it's a real shame. Self acceptance isn't always easy but it is a worthy goal.

I wonder whether most of the women who will look at this site are thinking 'wow all those shapes and sizes...I guess Im not so different. I feel beautiful' or if they are thinking 'WOW...that 18year old with massively sagging breasts is making me feel alot better about myself...at least mine dont look like that'
