like alot of women I have one boob smaller than the other. I think it is noticable when I'm dressed but more so to me. It seems worse since bf ds though I stopped a while ago.

What can I do to disguise it? Any tips please. I would like surgery eventually but tbh, if I can look normal with something non surgical then that would be better. Undressed, it is noticable but not enough for me to be concerned with dp. Thanks

I've got mismatched boobs too. Probably about a cup size difference so quite noticeable. Has got worse since I had Dcs even though I didnt BF.

I tend to find its much more noticeable without clothes on (although I dont really care tbh, I'm very comnfortable with DH and he doesnt mind!) but in clothes and a good fitting bra it should be much less noticeable.
You might find that because you know they are different sizes that it looks obvious to you, but nobody else would notice it?

Have you been fitted for a bra properly? That will help as well I think.
Perhaps those bras with the slightly padded insert that you can remove (and then take one side out only?)

ohmygosh - me too!

When I first started wearing a bra - I used to fill the other bra cup with tissue and sometimes even a sock! tragic i know.

Have upgraded to a set of chicken fillets from La Senza - they really work a treat and I can now wear fitted tops without feeling exposed!

I went for a M+S bra fitting in the summer (first time in 25 yrs of bra wearing) and the woman was really helpful. She suggested underwired, tshirt bras have the best shaped to compensate for the smaller breast and then putting the chicken fillet into the cup of the smaller breast. I wasnt at all embarrased and then overheard her telling the teenage girl in the next cubicle the same thing.

Thank you for this - I do feel better now! lol!
