kind of OT...triangle boobs?

well, i was inspired by the bye bye breasts thread, and had to ask. i'm currently 16 and a 36 B cup. but boobs have a weird trangle shape? instead of being full and round, they make a traingle and the nipples are puffy and large and it's so weird looking :[

am i going to grow out of it? is it just "immature" breasts? please help!

Well lucky for you at 16 your still growing. They say women's boobs aren't completely developed until they have a child. Sadly if that is the shape you are you will probably stay that way but just get a bit bigger. Some women have nice round, perky boobs and some don't. Mine were also sort of shaped the way yours are but once I had children they got bigger but still sort of shaped that way. Sorry to disappoint.

Yes, you are still developing.

This is something that an awful lot of adults on this site need to remember, since they aspirte to return to the weight they were at 18. For most of us, our hips and breasts and all that "woman" stuff aren't fully developed until somewhere in our 20s, so it's unrealistic (as well as sad and even disturbing) for anyone to want to revert to their semi-developed pre-adult size.

11:40am I hope "they" are wrong since I'm 40 with no children and I sure hope I'm completely developed! teehee

Nope she's not wrong. I've had several doctors say the same thing. A woman isn't fully developed until she has had children.

And, remember, all those melon boobs that you see in movies, tv, magazines, etc. are all fake! Normal boobs come in all shapes and sizes and they're not weird :)

What does 'developed' mean? Is that one more stigma for all of us women out here who are infertile? We're under developed too?? You're not fully a woman until you've given birth? Sounds like this reasoning came from misogynistic doctors.

3:06 A bit defensive there for no reason. No doctor said you are not a woman until giving birth. They've only said breasts are truly not developed until you have had children. When you get pregnant you start producing milk and that is when your breasts are truly developed. Something to do with the glands producing the milk that then makes the breasts grow more.

op here

thanks for the tips guys, i hope you guys are right. also, i''ve heard that as you lose weight, they "round out" more when they're that shape. so i'm gonna lose weight and then maybe gain some back if they're completely gone (i'd rather have triangle boobs than none lol at least you can push them into a shape lol)

Mine used to be pointy too when I was in my teens. I'm 28 now and they're completely round! I wish they can be pointy again..I liked them better that way. When they're pointy it means they're still developing and could get bigger.

re development: the distinction is histological, not something you can see. Indeed, women who do not have children have some cells in the breast that do not fully mature. This is why, statistically speaking, women who do not bear children are slightly more likely to develop breast cancer than those who do.

I didn't develop until I was 19 or 20.
Seriously, completely different chest at 16. My ex-boyfriends thought I had a boob-job.

You are too young to know if your boobs are normal, but it sounds like they are. Most girls have triangular boobs at your age, and the pubic hair is perfectly normal aswell. Most girls just shave it off. Also, it sounds like you have started your period and you need to tell your mum so she can get you some tampons and stuff. Its not embarrasing. Thinking of having sex at your age though is just wrong. You are not developed and could seriously damage yourself. I am 16 and lost my virginity when i was 12 and i would give anything to turn back time and have waited. I can guarantee that if you have sex at your age, you will regret it for the rest of your life. Plus, one of the easiest things to get is a reputation as a slut. Once you have it, you can never get rid of it.

How old are you? When my breasts were developing, they hurt so badly I thought I must have breast cancer. I think it is probably hormonal. I don't remember how long the pain lasted -- a year at most, I think. If you're really concerned, ask someone you trust. I suffered in silence and wish I'd been brave enough to ask someone.

Women's breasts develop through what have been identified as "stages". The stages are known as the "Tanner Stages of Development", and although the differentiation between each stage is not very distinct, the triangular shape that you are describing is classified as "Tanner Stage Three", with adult breasts being "Tanner Stage Fiive". Women's breasts are "fully developed" at stage five, but if the woman becomes pregnant or lactates herself through a rigid breast expression process, the acini (milk-producing) tissues that normally do not develop will begin developing, increasing the size of th breasts as much as a cup-size or two. Since you wrote your original question, you have probably noticed your breasts are no longer shaped like triangles, since the puffiness around your nipples indicates you are starting into "Tanner Stage Four". You can see the differences on under Awareness and Five Stages. Ken L. Smith

It isn't "wrong" to be thinking about sex at that age, it's natural, but indeed it is better to wait.
I lost my virginity at 13 and I am 18 now. Yes, becoming the "slut" is one of the consequences, but I'll tell you now that you can too get rid of that reputation.
I sure as hell did.

*& yes, my breasts hurt sooooo bad while they developed.

Triangle Boobs...

I'm 26, and I have triangle boobs. So it is possible your breasts will round out, and it's possible they won't. I've also never been on birth control, and never had children. My sister got a little more busty when she started the pill, and my mom says hers didn't grow until she had children.

Do you have any older female relatives with a similar body type to yours? That's probably where you'll end up.
