One breast larger than the other?

I recently went for a mammogram, which came back abnormal, and was called in for an ultrasound. Turned out that the tissue of the left breast is considerably more dense than the right, so they just wanted to make sure everything was OK. They seemed to be surprised that I had one breast (left) larger than the other, though. I thought this was fairly normal, esp. on the left side?

Does anyone else have one breast larger than the other? It's quite a difference on me - perhaps a full cup size in difference - and am already big busted. (34ddd on the right and possibly dddd on the left, or close to it.) Am I the only freak around here?!!

Ditto. My left is bigger. I don't think by a full cup, but enough to never have a godd fitting bra.

Re: One breast larger than the other?

You ladies are gems!! I feel so much better.

I agree about finding bras - if it fits my right side, the left is popping out. If it fits my left side, the right side is practically flying around in there.

One of you said your left was bigger as well. How about the rest of you?

Re: One breast larger than the other?

My left is larger as well, a full cup size too! It has always been so annoying to me. I have to be careful of what I wear too because some shirts really emphasize it. Ugh! And I too am in the understanding that this is completely normal, common even!

I have that problem too. My left breast is bigger than my right breast, and I have no idea why. No you are not the only one who is going through this, other women have it too. I have been told that it has something to do with your growth hormones, but I don't know if that is true or not.

Red face Re: One breast larger than the other?

OK I am freaking out. My RIGHT breast is a cup size larger than my left. I have noticed that only ladies are reporting of the left side being larger. Do you think I should see my doctor about this?

Re: One breast larger than the other?

Are you left handed or right handed?

In any case, if your breasts have always been like this, it's no reason to be concerned! I'm sure there are lots of women who have a larger right breast too.

Re: One breast larger than the other?

My left breast is larger and heavier than my right breast because my picky son would only nurse off the left side. From the first time I nursed him moments after birth while I was still being sewed up, he only wanted the left side, even though I think the same stuff would be coming out of both sides. Until that point, I was balanced.

Re: One breast larger than the other?

my right is also a cup size larger than the left. As for bras I wear a 38F from Fredricks of Hollywood, and they come with padding in them, so I take the padding out of the right side, and then voila! the left fits the same as the right, and it looks normal :-)

Re: One breast larger than the other?
