|3/23/2012||Thanks for turning to the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. We are all unique individuals, with our hair, eyes, color, height, weight and even our breasts being unique to us. I have seen lots of breast over the years, and they ALL are different, just like us. Normal is really what is normal for each of us! A well fitting bra offering good support is a must, so perhaps go with your Mom, Aunt or female friend to a shop that actually fits bras properly. It also helps to wear a well fitting sports bra when exercising or jogging. If you have not been seen by a gyn doctor, or a woman's health nurse practitioner, you could make an appoinmtment for a breast exam. Hope this helps a bit and best wishes!|
