Breast Growth

When do your breasts usually stop growing?

Generally, your breasts start to grow during or leading up to puberty (it could be seven or eight, or 13 or later) and can continue to grow throughout your teen years while your body is producing extra hormones. Generally your breasts will be finished growing at about 17 or 18. After that, you're pretty much at the size you'll be forever.
However, there are other factors that can affect your breast size even down the road. For instance, some medications can alter your weight and even breast size, and during pregnancy, breasts usually swell and stay larger for as long as your body produces breast milk.
Every girl's breasts will stop growing at different times. After all, they start growing at different times!
