Size isn't everything

Many women worry about their boobs being too big, too small, too droopy, not pert enough, not equal sizes…and looking at the images available in the media, this insecurity isn’t really surprising. However in the real world boobs come in many glorious forms.

No two pairs are the same, which makes it all the more interesting!

If they’re ‘too big’ then women often feel uncomfortable about the kind of attention they might attract, and can suffer back pain due to weight strain.

On the other hand, women often complain of feeling unattractive if they think their breasts are ‘too small’.  Whilst it would be great if everyone embraced their breast size and shape, many people feel unable to, due to physical or psychological discomfort and there are options available if this is the case.  Many women use padded bra’s or inserts and find this works for them.

There are many herbal products on the market which are said to enlarge breasts, however the effectiveness of these is dubious! The most ‘drastic’ option would be plastic surgery to either reduce, enlarge or lift.

It’s a big decision to make as it’s permanent and like any operation, there could be complications.  So think long and hard about the reason you want surgery, weigh up all the options and talk to your doctor about it.

If you find your breasts changing size, it could be due to a number of reasons such as weight gain or loss, age, infection or inflammation.  To veer on the safe side it should always be investigated by a health professional.  It is important to be aware that the size and feel of  breasts usually fluctuates during the menstual cycle, particularly with premenstrual water retention.

Not only will your breasts be different from other women’s breasts, but you will probably find that your own breasts may differ.  The majority of women have some difference in breast size and this is nothing to be concerned about, unless the size difference hasn’t always been there.

Remember that everyone’s breasts are different.  What’s important is the way you feel about your breasts and that, whatever their shape or size, you come to accept them as a unique and beautiful part of you!
