9 Interesting Things You May Not Know about Your Breasts

From bras to breast implants, there are several interesting facts about your breasts that you just may not know yet. Nine amazing facts that you need to know about your breast are discussed below;


1.Most Women Are Not Happy With Their Breasts

According to the International Journal of Sexual Health, about 70 percent of women are unhappy with their breasts because of issues with size (too small or too big) or drooping


2. Large Majority of Women Are Using the Wrong Sized Bras

Intimacy’s study also found that 85 percent of women are wearing the wrong size bra. There are professional bra fittings and at-home kits to help women find their proper cup size.


3. Your Breasts Move Around A Lot

When you run, your breasts tend to move in a figure-eight and can travel up to eight inches in either direction. This is why it is always important to always wear proper support.


4. Breasts Come in All Sorts of Sizes

There is a vast spectrum of different sizes and shapes. In fact, the Guinness World Record for largest natural breasts belongs to New York native Annie Hawkins-Turner. Her chest-over-nipple measurement is 70 inches.


5.Breasts Are Often Asymmetrical

It is totally normal for women to struggle with uneven breasts. The majority of women have one breast that is larger than the other by a fifth of a cup size. Breast asymmetry is one of the top reasons for breast augmentation.


6. Women Are Going For Larger Cup Sizes

According to a recent survey by lingerie retailer, Intimacy, states that the most popular bra size is now a 34 double D. Just 20 years ago, the average was a 34B. While the popularity of breast augmentation procedures may factor into this change.


7.The Bra Hasn’t Been Around As Long As You May Think

The bras and sizing measurements we use today were not created until the 1920s by Maidenform founders, Ida and William Rosenthal. Before then, women were lacing up their corsets.


8.Breast Pain is an Issue for Many Women During Exercise

According to the British Journal of Sports Medicine, nearly one in three marathon runners experience breast pain. The chances are, if your breasts are a little larger, then exercise like running can be a difficult task. Women who suffer from macromastia (the medical term for overly large breasts) struggle with exercise and are more at risk of obesity. Many women seek out breast reduction to resolve these issues and the patient satisfaction ratings for the procedure are superb.

9.Breast Implants Have Been Tied to a Better Sex Life

According to a survey by RealSelf last year, 61 percent of women said that they are now having more sex after receiving implants and 70 percent said that their sex-life satisfaction had improved.
