Breasts come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. No two people have breasts that look exactly the same.
So, what’s “normal” when it comes to breasts? How do your breasts measure up?
The answer is that your breasts are unique, and it’s perfectly OK that they have their own distinctive shape and size.
If you need more convincing, read on to learn about the many variations of breast shapes and how to identify yours among them.
Even if your breasts take after a common “type,” they probably have variations that set them apart from the next person’s.
Some breasts have characteristics associated with multiple types and can’t be boxed into one specific category.

The archetypal breast — round and full with a small point at the nipple — is considered the “standard” for breast type.
It’s said to be the most common shape, so it’s what most bra manufacturers model their designs after.
Athletic breasts are wider, with more muscle and less breast tissue.
Bell-shaped breasts resemble a bell, with a narrow top and a rounder bottom.
Close-set breasts have no separation or a very small gap between them. They sit closer to the center of your chest, creating more distance between your underarm and your breast.
Conical breasts are shaped more like cones, rather than round. This shape is considered to be more common in smaller breasts than larger ones.
If your nipples point outward, away from the center of your body, then your breast type is East West.
Relaxed breasts have looser breast tissue and nipples that point downward.
Round breasts have an equal amount of fullness at the top and the bottom.
Side-set breasts are further apart, with more space between them.
Slender breasts are narrow and long, with nipples pointing downwards.
The teardrop shape is round and the bottom is just a little fuller than the top.
