Default Ladies, do you have this same chest problem?

As I lose, I notice the "girls" lose rather unevenly. The right side has been bigger for some time, spilling over my bra, and the other fits in there nicely. Today they're even again.

Anyone else experience this?

I think that it's normal to have one larger than the other (usually the one on your dominant side is larger). I don't think it's necessarily anything to do with weight loss. I've talked to some friends about this, and all of them have said that one is at least a *little* bigger than the other.

I wonder if it could be hormonal changes or water balance? I haven't noticed that myself, but I would imagine it's normal.

Yeah, I used to swear the right one had chocolate! My children preferred the right. Maybe there's something to this. LOL!

I've got uneven-sized girls - unused too! :blush:

I do remember, from the great putsch of 2002-2004, that my belly fat shifted unevenly, I became very lop-sided for a while. TBH, looking forward to it this time!

Most women are asymmetrical - it's perfectly natural.

Most body part in general are asymmetrical. If you look closely at your hands and feet you will probably also find one side larger than the other. Same goes with arms, legs, ears, eyes, anything a person has 2 of. Same thing happens to men. Supposedly it does tend to be the more dominant side that is larger, but that's not always the case. For me the left side is bigger even though I'm right dominant. We notice it more in the chest because the size of our breasts is so important to us and to society.

I asked my son about this, he has a degree in human biology. He said, although most things are mostly equal, we are not totally assymetrical.

For instance, I have one ear, slightly higher than the other, my right leg is a tad longer than my left, everything on my right is larger by a bit, I'm right handed. It's not unusual for one breast/wrist/calf/ankle/ etc. to be slightly larger/smaller.

He also said, in men, one testicle is usually slightly larger and hangs lower than the other. Now I don't run around checking this out, so I'll take his word on that one. Lol!

The wierd one is I have a nephew who has eyes that are 2 different colors, it's not super noticeable unless you know about it, but one is blue and one is green. Weird.

Unless it's a huge difference, it's perfectly normal.

Same problem here. My son likes the left side, so my right breast is smaller. Like way smaller. A whole cup size. I look kinda odd, but oh well, it will even out eventually.
