Everyone knows that boobs can be either big or small, but did you also know that they can be asymmetric, bell shaped or side set? There’s a chance you don’t even know what some of those words mean when it comes to determining what type of boobs or breast you have, and it turns out that there are many more descriptors beyond just the size.

There are words to describe nipple placement, where exactly your boobs sit on your chest, and what direction your boobs even face when they’re out in the wild (aka not in a bra).

Would you have ever guessed that there are NINE different types of boobs in the United States of America?! Well, according to the popular bra company Third Love’s breast shape dictionary, most women have one out these nine different sets of breasts.

All boobs (and nipples) are totally normal, but identifying your exact shape can find you the best bras for your shape.

And ThirdLove also recommends the most fitting styles for every breast shape. Here are the nine types of boobs in the USA…

1. Asymmetric Boobs

This refers to sets of boobs where one is larger (or smaller) than the other. Push-up bras with removable pads would probably work best, as you can even out your breasts by removing or adding pads.

2. Athletic Boobs

In case you were wondering, you don’t have to be an intense athlete to have athletic boobs. These breasts are wider, more muscular-looking, and have less tissue. A wireless bra is perfect for wider boobs — it’ll provide comfort and support!

3. East West Boobs

If your nipples point in opposite directions outward, you probably have east west breasts. ThirdLove recommends push-up bras, as they will help gather your breasts to the front of your chest.

4. Relaxed Boobs

For the relaxed type, your boobs typically hang downwards and have lax tissue. Though a T-shirt or push-up bra will definitely give your girls a little lift, it’s totally fine to embrace your boobs as they are. Bell shape breasts are thinner at the top and fuller at the bottom. Not surprisingly, they look like bells! A comfy, lifting T-shirt bra would work best for your shape. Having a slender shape doesn’t necessarily mean that you wear a smaller cup size. It just means that your boobs are on the thinner side — they probably don’t take up your entire chest. Bras with a deep plunge can help gather your breasts towards the center. Paris Hilton is an American celebrity and a perfect model for show casing the slender breast. Your boobs can be called side set if you have a little space between your breasts. A front close bra — one that fastens in the front — would be ideal for your breast type! Just as you would expect, round boobs are the type that are fully circular, and equal at the top and bottom of the breasts. Lucky for you, you can pretty much pull off any style of bra with this shape. Similar to round breasts, the tear drop shape is circular, but your boobs are a little less full at the top. You can also rock any style if you have this type!

How to Care for Your Boobs:

1. Conduct Breast Self Exams:

Most important and for everyone, men included. 340 men in the UK are diagnosed each year, so looking out for any changes in the chest area is also something for men to be aware of. A good piece of advice is to find out if you have a higher risk of breast cancer and to tell your doctor if anyone in your family has had breast or ovarian cancer. The most pro-active thing you can be doing is practicing monthly breast self-exams to check for anything that’s not normal for you, such as any unusual lumps or swelling.

Moisturizing can often feel like a bit of a chore, but there’s no denying it’s great for keeping your breasts happy if you have the time and want to. The skin around your breasts is thin and can be particularly sensitive so, if this is something you’d like to try, it’s a good idea to use a thicker cream that doesn’t contain any irritating chemicals to prevent your chest area from becoming dry and sore.

If you notice redness or rashes around your chest area, it may well be your skin reacting to a synthetic fabric in your clothing or a chemical in your moisturizer. It’s a good idea to get it checked out with your doctor just in case and, if it is the fabrics or the cream, wearing clothing that is 100% cotton and using natural skin-creams can help prevent further irritation.

3. Massage your Boobs

Around your breasts, are lymph nodes which carry fluid called lymph which helps fight off illness.  The lymphatic system relies on the movement of the body to keep the fluid moving along, and so one way of helping it out is to massage in the direction that your lymph wants to move, towards the heart.

Massaging is also very relaxing and helps to de-stress and cultivate a positive way of touching your body through movements that show care and affection for your body as a whole. As well as a source of self-care, it can also be a nice way to treat yourself after a breast self-exam.

4. Maintain a Healthy Diet & Exercise

As with the rest of your body, your breasts require balanced nourishment and regular exercise to keep them happy. A well-balanced diet containing proteins, healthy fats and nutrient-dense foods, such as nuts, eggs, milk and vegetables is one way of helping them along.

Increased physical activity reduces the overall risk of breast cancer by 10-30%, so moderate exercise will help protect your breasts. Diet and exercise will vary for every person, depending on time, needs and your body, so go easy on yourself and set small and manageable targets that work for you.

5. Know when to Wear a Bra and when not to

There is of course absolutely no right or wrong when it comes to whether or not you should wear a bra. It all depends on your body and its needs.

All in all, if you wear a bra, it’s better to have a couple that fit really well and keep your boobs happy than lots of bras that get away with slyly chilling under your tops without chipping in on the overall wellbeing of your breasts.
