Breasts come in all different shapes and sizes. Everybody is different. Breasts change shape and size throughout your life.

It is common for most women to have one breast that is slightly bigger than the other. Your breasts will probably not stop growing until you are about 19 years old.

Breasts can be used to produce milk and feed a baby but breasts are also an erogenous zone – meaning it might feel nice if they are touched.
