The old saying goes that every woman gets one breast bigger than the other. That’s not the case, fortunately.
If the uneven chest is not unusual, it is not the only form of breast that exists. There are actually 7. We have round, opposite, lateral (or spread out), narrow, drop-shaped, bell-shaped and of course, asymmetrical breasts.
The shape and size of breasts are genetically determined, but they can change after pregnancy and breastfeeding, intensive sports sessions and sudden weight fluctuations, according to specialists.
In the specific case of breast asymmetry, it may be congenital or acquired following a breast lesion, particularly after breast cancer. Knowing your size is therefore an asset when choosing your bra. According to US underwear company Third Love, which illustrates the seven common breast shapes, it is important to take into account your body shape in order to make a better choice when buying underwear, in addition to breast and chest sizes.
