5 things about your breasts no one told you

You may think you know everything about your breasts, but there’s a lot more to find out about besides bras and mammograms. For example, here’s a random pick of 5 fun, weird, and fascinating facts about women’s breasts.


Breast pain can be a mystery

Breast pain is an extremely common complaint. Breast pain is often related to hormonal fluctuations and tends to be worst right before and during a woman’s menstrual period. If a woman’s breast pain or tenderness is causing distress or disrupting her daily life, she should talk with her doctor for further workup. The majority of breast pain is not related to cancer.


Most ladies aren’t happy with their breasts

70% of women are not content with their breasts, as research published in the International Journal of Sexual Health shows. It is time for mindfulness and self-acceptance to understand that you are unique, and so are your breasts. And the genuine beauty of your breasts is one in a million. 


They are never the same

Your breasts are almost never the same. One breast is usually about a fifth of a cup size larger than the other, on average. 


Most women get the wrong bra size 

Even though every woman’s breast shape, size, and perkiness or sagginess changes about six times throughout their lives, women don’t get fitted often enough to ensure that their bras are properly evolving with their breasts.

About 85% of women are wearing the wrong bra size according to Intimacy data. 


Breasts need moisturizing

The skin on your breasts is the same as the rest of the skin on your body (excluding the nipples, they are a bit more sensitive). Instead of using expensive skin-care products marketed specifically for “firming” or “enhancing” the breasts, use regular soap or body wash on your breasts and lotion.

Avoid going overboard with harsh chemicals that can cause irritation and dryness. Avoid sun exposure without prior application of UV lotion on your breasts. If you’re sunbathing topless, make sure to protect your nipples with special covers that will prevent them from damage.
