Lopsided and uneven breasts can do significant damage to the self esteem of women, but the fact is just about every woman has one breast slightly smaller or larger than the other. Currently over 45% of women have one breast that is a half cup or larger than the other breast. Here is a list of possible uneven breast size causes and simple solutions to remedy the issue.
Breastfeeding a Child
It doesn’t matter how much you try to feed the baby evenly from both breasts, the child will often prefer one over the other. The end result, one of the breasts will stretch and appear uneven as time passes. The appearance of the larger breast can last long after breastfeeding has been completed.
The Alignment of the Body
The fat deposits and muscles in the body tend to become more evenly distributed when the body is in perfect alignment. The truth however is that during a persons life, sleeping positions, disease, injuries, stress, and posture, will cause the alignment of the body change. The over-development of the muscles will cause the fat tissues in the breasts to appear uneven.
Left or Right Hand Dominance
Depending on whether a woman is left or right handed, the larger of the two breasts is usually on the same side of the dominant hand. This is a direct result of the muscles on that side of the body being used more frequently throughout the day.
The uneven breasts can be attributed to estrogen levels in adolescent girls. Soon after menstruation, the breasts will begin to develop and can easily develop fuller on one side of the body.
Solutions for Uneven Breasts
If the breasts are different sizes due to the body being out of alignment, visiting a chiropractor who can put you on a program that will help to balance the body can have dramatic results. If the problem is a result of the dominant side getting more muscle tone, exercise the other side of the body more frequently.
If the difference in size is significant, reducing the larger breast will have faster results than trying to enlarge the smaller one. Having a esthetician place a body wrap on the larger breast will decrease the size to match the other breast. This process can also be done at home by purchasing the wraps.
There is a large variety of different body wraps available for use in the home what will shrink the larger breast after only a few treatments. Your breast is going to be very responsive to the wraps, so be very careful how many treatments that you apply. The breast may not respond for a few days, so never apply more than two treatments until you are confident enough time has passed and you have seen significant size reduction.
Another way to even out the size of the breasts is with gentle massage using a breast cream such as Naturaful. Massaging the smaller breast only will help to even out the appearance, or if you want to increase the overall bust size you can massage both. Be sure to massage the smaller of the two twice as much so they even out as they grow.
Just because your boobs are asymmetrical it does not mean you have to live with the condition. If the difference in size bothers you, identify the cause and take the appropriate steps to treat the issue. That small investment in efforts and your time will not only boost the size of the breasts, it will boost your confidence and self-esteem too.
