Is the left breast is bigger than your right? This is perfectly normal as over half the women worldwide report experiencing same.
If you’ve ever stood in front of a mirror for a really long time, you’d have noticed that not all parts of your anatomy are created equal; for most of your body parts that come in pairs, one is usually larger or appears slightly more different from the other.
The breasts is one such organs and if you’ve ever wondered why one breast (usually the left) is bigger than the other, the post right here will explain this difference.
Why the Left Breast is Bigger than the Right
For most women the left breast is usually bigger than the right- about 4% bigger. You may not notice this difference in size just by staring at both breasts through your cloth, unless you stand in front of a mirror with your clothes off, and carry out a careful examination.
So why is there a difference in the size or shape of your breasts?
A girl’s breast starts developing during puberty around the age of 9-12, and these breasts start off as tiny bud under the nipple. One breast comes out before the other and will also grow at a pace faster than the other. However, as both breasts grow, they even out and become the same size before you get to age 21 although, in some cases, this is not so and one breast ends up being larger than the other.
This happens to over 65% of women and doesn’t make you weird. Most people don’t even notice it.
You may have perfectly asymmetrical breasts, but notice one getting bigger after childbirth. This is easily explained as most women favour one breast and prefer to nurse a child at that particular breast. This can cause the frequently used breast to get slightly larger than the other.
