Dear BeingGirl Experts,

Are my boobs growing?

 

Leah

Dear Leah,

 

One of the first signs of puberty is when your breasts start developing. Many girls start to get "breast buds" (mounds or bumps around or under the nipple) at age 11. If you're a few years younger or older than 11 when you develop breast buds, that's totally normal, too.

 

Next, your entire breast will start to get larger. Your nipple and areola (the area around the nipple) will get darker and form a separate, small mound. This whole process, from "flat" to "finish" generally takes about 2-3 years. Your breasts will develop to be different shapes and sizes from your peers and other women, and that’s OK! It’s important to embrace the change and accept your beautiful and unique features!

 

Some girls develop more quickly than others, and it's normal for one breast to grow faster than the other. Sometimes it can take a while for things to "even out." After you’ve stopped growing, if you still have one breast that’s a lot larger than the other, you may want to discuss this with your doctor or health care provider.

 

As your breasts continue to develop, you may feel more comfortable with some additional support. This can include trying out different types of bras until you find what’s most comfortable. Check out our Bra Guide to explore all the different styles and find the right fit for you.

 

Breasts get a lot of attention during puberty because they're new and not everyone gets them at the same time. Just remember: Everyone's breasts are different. What's important is the way you feel about your breasts. Accept them as another unique and beautiful part of you!

 

Hope this is helpful!

Your BeingGirl Experts

To Lovie: you should be patient,i'm sure that your'e probably just a late bloomer. The only time that you should be concerned is if you are 13-14 and nothing on your chest has started developing yet.

I am (14) in (8)th grade...and I have just had my second ever period. To all you girls saying why haven't I started mine yet, I've been there & done that. And Tbh sweethearts you don't want to start your period it's messy & it sucks. And as for boobs I am a 34a and can fit into a 32a if I had to...but my boobs are a work in progress and so are all you other girls goodluck in the process it sucks alot. ??????
