Q: I’m unhappy with my breasts. I’m only 25 years old and am a full A cup, but ever since I can remember, my breasts have drooped and are kind of triangular instead of round. Could this be a result of the kind of unsupportive bras I was wearing when they started to grow? Would wearing underwire bras have made them firmer and rounder? Is there any hope for them now?

__A.__The size and shape of your breasts have nothing to do with the type of bra that you wear. There is no way to control their natural development. Some changes do occur when women start taking birth control pills; some women’s breasts get bigger because of the estrogen in the Pill–and during pregnancy, breasts may become temporarily larger for the same reason. Breast implants, of course, are a surgical way to increase breast size, but there are health risks to consider, and the procedure is expensive. There’s always the option of a good push-up bra. But I think it’s important to remember that the size of your breasts does not define you or make you any less beautiful.
