9 Facts You Should Know About A Woman’s Breast

The breast is one of the most vital glands in both males and females. The breasts are paired structures located on the anterior thoracic wall, in the pectoral region. They exist in both males and females. In women, the breasts encompass the mammary glands (an accessory gland of the female reproductive system). The mammary glands are the major establishments involved in breastfeeding. This is one of the major things that differentiates the breast of a woman from that of a man.


Aside from breastfeeding a baby, so many people do not know other facts associated with the breast of a woman and that is what I want to analyze in this article. Some other facts associated with a woman’s breast include;

1. Breast size is hereditary.

You have an equal chance of inheriting your chest size from either parent, which is why your sister may have much larger breasts than you.

2. Not all breasts are created equal.

If your bra seems tighter on one side of your chest, you’re not imagining things. Most women have one breast that’s up to 20 percent of a cup size larger. Another fun fact: more than 60 percent of women have a left breast that is larger than the right.

3. Your boobs aren’t just made of fat.

They are a complex system of glands and ducts, which also include your nipple. And underneath each breast is a muscle, as well as fibrous tissue that separates it from your ribs. However, after a certain age, your breasts do turn into mostly fat.

4. Sagging is inevitable.


Unless you have corrective surgery, getting older means your breasts will sag over time. Other culprits include gravity, smoking, and sleeping. If you’re a stomach sleeper, you might consider changing positions. Some reports show that sleeping on your stomach can change the shape of your breasts.

5. Breasts have no muscle.

They’re made up of tissue, fat, and glands. Breasts sit on top of the pectoral muscles, but breasts themselves don’t have any muscle in them. So you can do push-ups your arms give out, but it’s not going to make your set any perkier (sorry).

6. The Color And Size Of Your Nipple Can Grow Or Change.

There’s no “normal” when it comes to nipple and areola color and size. Some women have very small nipples and small areolar tissue, while some women have very large areas. Why? It probably has a lot to do with your hormones, particularly during pregnancy. You may notice an increase in your nipple and areola size and color after puberty, and especially during pregnancy.

7. A Bad Bra Can Cause Sagging.



If your breasts aren’t getting enough support, they’re going to start drooping. “It’s estimated that over 80 percent of women aren’t wearing the correct size bra, and improper support can lead to sagging,” says Weaver. Properly fitted bras should lift you and help breasts keep their shape.

8. Smoking can cause breasts to droop, but breastfeeding doesn’t.

Many women blame breastfeeding for breast droop, but the facts don’t bear that out. While pregnancy can change the elasticity of ligaments in the breasts, breastfeeding merely changes the size of the breasts, but has little impact on the elasticity of the skin. Smoking, on the other hand, is a direct antagonist to elastin, the substance that makes all skin supple, which can lead to drooping breasts.

9. Breasts change size after baby but they usually bounce back.

Sometimes women complain that their breasts look different after they’ve had a baby, or that breastfeeding made their breasts deflated or hang lower. The truth is that their breasts will probably bounce back to what they looked like before, but that it may take a few months.
