"Only one of my breasts is growing! Is this normal?"
I just started to “develop” a breast bud a few months ago. But I’m wondering if it’s normal that my other one hasn’t come. Does this happen a lot?
Your body is behaving normally, promise. Puberty causes hormones to surge and breast tissue to grow. Sometimes, one side is more receptive to hormones, explains Dr. Mary LoFrumento, a pediatrician in Morristown, N.J. The other breast will catch up, but it could take up to a year.
In the meantime, feel free to wear a bra and try not to worry. You’re not alone. Most women’s boobs, like their feet or ears, are slightly different in size.
