Whether it is their size or their shape, women’s breasts have way too many myths and ‘mysteries’ around them. Let me bust 5 of these for you!
The woman’s body has constantly either been sexualised or looked at as a ‘mysterious thing.’ Whether it is talking about vaginas or periods or even a woman’s breasts, there is some sort of a ‘mystery’ around it.
Women’s breasts are often sexualised and talked about yet remain a hidden and mysterious part of a woman’s body. Let me bust some myths about this secondary sexual organ!
Truthfully, there is no such thing as that. One way to look at it is, by thinking of your cheeks. With the amount of blood supply, the smiling and the cheek-pulling, they still don’t grow, do they?
What may happen is that you may be unable to look after yourself as you did earlier thus leading to what seems like an increase. Secondly, the hormonal changes that a body undergoes during pregnancy and breast-feeding may also lead to a change in your breast size.
Yet another factor to this is age. As you grow older, your skin starts to lose its elasticity and you may notice changes all across your body!
Every breast has some sort of lump or the other. Thus, checking your breasts periodically is a good idea in order to differentiate between the normal lumps and the unusual ones.
It is a mammary tissue and it is supposed to have some lumps. However, if you feel like there is something different or unusual, please consult a doctor.
If you actually notice this closely, that is not the case! Try looking at your face as well, it is not a 100 percent symmetrical, either. In medical terms, when one is asked for symmetry, one looks for unusual growths or swellings.
No two parts of your body will ever actually look the same or be symmetrical!
Well, absolutely not! Even women with big breasts might have issues while feeding their kids. Whether you have issues breastfeeding your baby or not, completely depends on your hormones and your nutrition, not the size of your breasts!
Honestly, it’s time we got over the myth of hairless women. PCOD/PCOS or not, women do have hair on their bodies – their legs, their breasts and nipples. It is perfectly normal to have hairy nipples or hair around your nipples. Please don’t try to wax it off, for it will hurt terribly!
These are some myths about breasts that I have commonly heard. Do let me know some myths you have heard about in the comments!

"There is a story and a vision which makes us gravitate towards cinema. Even as we worked as assistants on ads, we realised that cinema was our true calling," say Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh Raseen.

Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
