It is not uncommon for women to have uneven breasts, actually it is the norm. Every woman has one breast larger than the other, however for some women it can be a drastic difference. Many times women who have an obvious inconsistency between breast sizes feel uncomfortable, and embarrassed. Breast asymmetry can make women self-conscious; however there are a few methods that can provide a balance between both breasts.
Choosing the Right Bra Size
A hassle that women face constantly with uneven breast size is finding the appropriate bra type to fit both breasts comfortably. Do you favor the larger size bra or the smaller bra? When purchasing new bras, it’s important to fit the larger breast comfortably. The larger sized bra will most likely leave a gap between the cup and the breast, but that can be easily remedied with a bra pad to fill the empty space. However, with the smaller bra, the bigger breast may feel smashed while the smaller breast feels at ease.
Achieving Symmetrical Proportion
For women who want to feel more comfortable in their own skin, there are several surgical options to consider to improve breast asymmetry. The first thing to consider is the ideal breast size for your body, would you want to add a breast implant to the smaller breast or reduce the size of the larger breast?
To achieve the best results, is to consider resizing both breasts. For example, women with large breasts both can be reduced but one breast will be reduced more than the other. If both breasts are small, you can consider a breast augmentation procedure to keep both breasts as similar as possible.
