A huge proportion of American women are not happy with their breasts. The media images make them believe the ideal is big and perky breasts with a small nipple and areola. But, in reality female breasts come in all kinds of sizes and shapes. These breast pictures are here to let you see normal breasts — big, small, sagging, asymmetrical; big areolas or nipples. In fact, having asymmetrical breasts, where one is bigger than the other, is very very common. Most women have one breast slightly larger than the other.

They create an unflattering comparison but also an unobtainable ideal. I wanted to rehumanise women through honest photography. Dodsworth interviewed each woman at length, starting by asking them how they felt about their breasts. The interviews soon became more emotional than she anticipated.
The biological function of breasts work to keep babies fed , of course, but somewhere along the way, boobs have become so much more. Along with your size, each shape supposedly dictates the type of bra you should wear. But then I got to thinking: Why stop at just seven shapes?
