About Breast

"Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies." Bible quotes



Anatomically breasts are quite literally two well structured and shaped mounds of fat that start to grow on the chest of girls when they hit puberty. The biological objective for women to have breasts is to eventually produce milk to wean her baby. Breast growth can be noticed in some girls as early as age 7 or 8, while in others it does not start until their late teens or even early 20’s.

Scientifically there is no way of knowing how big or small or how fast or slowly they will develop or when a woman’s breasts will start to grow.

It is however believed that the timing of these developments is associated with ones own biologic clock, which tells our body to start producing the required levels of female hormones called estrogen. From the moment the ovaries start to secrete these hormones, the connective tissues in the chest start to accumulate fat. This causes the first appearance of breasts on the chest wall of girls. The duct system in the breasts also begins to grow; these are what will eventually help to produce milk for the expecting mother.

Breast


Usually the first signs of puberty in most girls are associated with the development of the breast. Along with this, one can often expect the onset of pubic hair and hair of the arm pit.

The final size and shape of a girl’s breast varies greatly from being big breast, small breast or even perfect size breast. These pointers are all determined by the heredity of the girl.

Breasts from time immemorial have been the icon of a women’s beauty. They give the women the personality, make them often desirable and have always fascinated their male partner. 

Over the years people have referred to breasts by various terms; however it is the slang that is more popular. Some  common slangs are: Tits, Titties, Norks, Jugs, Knockers, Bust, Boobs, Bosoms, Boobies, Baps, Bust, Hooters and Melons.

To fully understand the developments of the breasts it is necessary to first look at the structure of the breasts.

I remember I read this article probably two years ago which made me realize my breasts are "constricted or tubular", or according to Medindia, "severely deformed" and "surgery is suggested". Thank you for making the first description I ever read about breasts that resemble mine to be "severely deformed" and suggest surgery. Whoever wrote this article obviously has 0 concern for anyone's self esteem. CHANGE THE WORDING of your description so you don't make any more young girls feel any MORE ashamed than they already are about their "severely deformed breasts". There are a LOT more women with this problem than documented due to the shame and embarrassment involved. Your article makes it 20 times worse. Asshole.

I am 21 and my right nipple has been paining on and off since monday. Previously I thought it was due to my sleeping position but now I find my nipple hard and I'm not sure if that is a lump right underneath my nipple. I have been taking alot of purified butter lately which is high in fat. Please suggest me what could be wrong?

STOP TELLING WOMEN HOW TO FEEL ABOUT THEIR BOOBS! unless they're in pain, or have some disease their breasts ARE perfect. i would rather be a little saggy than make my boobs uncomfortable. you know why? cause i actually appreciate my body. in our culture everyone's constantly worried about how they look instead of enjoying themselves. its a sad, sad thing.

My breasts :[ When a teen, I was quite shy and unaware abt stuff. I'll have to blame my mother, therefore, that she did not make me wear a bra when i hit puberty- which was like at 11-12yrs. When I finally did gather the courage to ASK her for a bra, I was 15 and most of the damage had been done. My breasts grew without support, used to wear a simple chemise beneath my clothes. Now they're like big, SAGGY, with faint stretch marks, and when I look at them, I think of how beautiful they COULD have been, and what a disaster they're now. It's just so so sad.
