What are the
signs that my
boobs are

#boobs, #puberty

One of the first signs you've started puberty is when you develop breasts, which can be noticed up to 2 years before your period arrives.

Normally, the first sign is when you develop the ‘breast bud’, which are basically small raised lumps behind your nipple area. Breast buds are made up of milk glands, tissue, fat and muscle and it's very normal for one to start showing before the other. It might also take a few months before the second breast starts to develop too. They might also feel a bit tender, especially if they’re accidentally knocked. This is very normal as the breasts continue to develop over the next few years.


It's also not unusual for the nipple area to become a little sore and sometimes cracked. Don’t worry; rub a little cream in before you go to bed to prevent them from feeling sore or tender.

What’s normal?

#boobs, #puberty

No matter what you hear, see or read, all breasts are great and no size is better than any other. The size of your boobs that you'll end up is partly down to genetics, which means you're likely to take after your mum or dad’s side (weird right!) It's also true that no two breasts are exactly the same, and one breast might always look slightly different in shape and size to the other, even when fully grown. Some girls are really proud of their new shape, while others feel embarrassed if they develop breasts first. Either way, just remember girls hit puberty at different stages so therefore develop their own boobs at different times and there’s no rush!

I'm 15, wish my boobs could be a C, but they're only A cup :(


My breasts are different sizes lol one is a little bit pointy and the other is rounder. I nicknamed them bouba and Kiki (it's a reference to a trend a while ago)

Cute dog

How long after you first get breast buds do you need a bra? I have a bralette but not a proper bra and I just have a bit more than a breast bud I think..


I feel so insecure and weird because I always have cracked nipples since it started growing and the middle of it falkes of a little bit and now it looks split it half, I'm scared to tell anyone. Is this normal??


I am worried that my breasts are growing faster than my sisters but that just means that my puberty is coming earlier than her
