Jeana‘s post A Photo Gallery of Normal Breasts reminded me of this great post on Jezebel that is a little old, but fits right in with our breast theme week here on MSP. Not only are breasts all different shapes, sizes, weights, textures, and colors. The different types of breasts also go in and out of style which is why it may seem that there were more torpedo shaped breasts in the 60s and rounder, more fuller breasts today, but really it’s all about what types of breasts are being shown to us based off the culture of beauty that exists today (and sometimes, what kinds of bras are in style at the time).
