One of my breasts is larger than the other, it maybe "normal" but its a pain... and really annoying, especially because my breasts are pretty large. Right now the only bra that I have found to accommodate me is Victoria's Secret - Low -back Multi-way Bra w/ Gel Curves. It has gel filled fillers I guess you can call them that can be added/removed from one side to another. Since one of my breasts is larger I put both of them on my smaller side and it helps make them look perfectly even through my shirt. Anyways I guess what I am wondering is if anyone has any other bra suggestions? What works for you girls...? ****Oh and BTW, I am A woman lol my husbands name is just on here unfortunately, if I knew how to change it, I would :)****

You might want to consult your doctor because the difference in breast size might be due to a defect in the breast bone raising one side of the chest more than the other or scoliosis rotating one side further forward. If it is mild a breast augmentation on the smaller side or a breast reduction on the fuller side might be the answer. No one is perfectly symetrical.

It's pretty common. I think part of has to do with handedness. We use the pectoral muscles more on the side that we favor. It sounds like you have found a simple solution to the problem. I don't favor breast augmentation for something this "trivial".

Having one breast larger than the other is common. My roommate was assured this by her doctor. If you are happy leave it be. Your putting both pads on one side is ingenius!

I use these: Original Looks Silicone Bra Inserts (or something like them--pretty sure I got mine at Fredrick's of Hollywood).

I'm severely lopsided--more than a cup and a half difference right now, since I'm pregnant. I haven't tried the VS bra with inserts, although I have done the same thing with padded bras in the past. The nice thing about the silicone is that it works in every bra except for thin cloth ones, and once you get used to it, you'll forget it's there. Just buy your bra to fit the larger breast, and slip one of these things in. The ones I have aren't specific to a side, either, so a pair will last you a long time.

I also have to confess, I'm profoundly disturbed by how many people would suggest augmentation FIRST, especially when you have so many other options.

I used to have about a cup between my left and my right (the right being larger than the left). For the longest time I would get sports bras since they were both in the E-F range. Those bras had to be very sturdy but once I had found a good one I was happy (strong without separating the breasts).
What it did for me is gently pushing all of it together and the trick was only visible by looking in: My cleavage was not centered and my right breast was going over the middle. That way both looked a little smaller and even.
Then I lost weight and had to scrap those bras. The difference between the breasts is less drastic now and I can wear a D cup for both. All I have to do is make sure that it is a formed cup. It gives me a 100% snug fit on one and a loose (but still ok) fit on the other.

I'm not a fan of Victoria's Secret, as their bras don't provide very good support for larger cup sizes. The double-pad solution is just fine -- no reason for augmentation when you can balance things out that way! But I would suggest switching to a higher-quality bra that is especially designed to accommodate full breasts. Wacoal has an excellent selection of DD+ bras. Other brands to try: Le Mystere, Bali, Freya, Anita, and Panache.

to OP: yes, as most people said, one breast is almost always larger than the other, just as one foot is....nothing to do w/ handedness or using muscles more on one side.
If you are really bothered by this, talk to a board-certified Plastic Surgeon (meaning he/she has had further study/taken additional exams, etc) and find out what it would cost to (not augment them (that is to make them bigger, unless thats what you want too....) but to make them equal. Usually not worth it unless there is a noticeable difference. Usually its only noticeable to you.

Insurance generally won't cover this since it's considered cosmetic surgery.

Try "" for a huge selection of bras and very good tips on fitting of all kinds. I'd doubt "Frederick of Hollywood" is the place to go for help with this......unless you're a pole dancer on the side.... :-0

I can't visualize what you are doing with the bra you describe. Sounds overly complex and unnecessary when there are better "fixes" out there.

You are not alone, followed by size discrepancies in feet, height of earlobes, the diameter of limbs. The list goes on. You are normal, I adjusted my bra straps to compensate, prior to having a reduction.

Absolutely agree. Adding: As breast cancer person needed single mastectomy and reconsstruction. Prior to surgery decided to do both breasts. On one hand, as prophylaxis; but what was really important to me was having symetrical breasts.

After my breast reduction, I STILL HAD ASYMMETRY, at least insurance paid for it. All looks better. I hope your recovery was without difficulty, did you have problems with lymphatic drainage?

A good bra is the ticket, as being professionally fitted, that is a common error, so many variables in sizes. I am a 34 double E.

One of mine is slightly larger than the other to, I have heard this is normal, of course mine is not so much larger as to be very noticable, I notice it, but if it were so noticable I'd correct it with breast surgery.

Everyones is... you'd be a freak if they weren't... Just ignore it & enjoy your life...

When the breast fairy came to visit she gave me only one. I was a C on the left and not even an A on the right. My mother the saint got me a mastectomy form which I used with whatever bra I wanted. After having my children and breast feeding both (both of them preferred the right, go figure) I no longer needed to use the insert. Now I live in sports bra's. I'm still noticeably asymmetrical but I can't find a bra that is comfortable. Allot of the lingerie stores (Fredericks etc) have a larger selection of gel inserts and things like that to enable you to wear which ever bra you want.
