When looking down in the shower, you might notice that your breasts have a very particular look that is all yours. They could be small, medium, large, or extra large. They could have areola that cover almost the entire boob and nipples that stick out, or they could have bumpy, short areola with inverted nipples. But before you start to analyze every chest you see, however, you should know that there are many ways every set of boobs is different.
The lingerie brand ThirdLove recently released helpful drawings that reveal women actually have nine different types of boobs. The brand created these illustrations in order to help women figure out their own boob category, and hopefully find just the right bra. But recognizing that all breasts are different is about more than just realizing that there are different shapes for those mammary glands.
Just as there are ways that every vagina is different, boobs are different too. I'm reminded of that every time I walk outside in the summer and see an assortment of women wearing breast-bearing dresses and tops. Whether they're meant to be shown off or are a little more subdued, here are eight ways that your boobs might be different from your bestie's and that's totally okay.
