Many women have uneven breasts. It’s a very common fact of anatomy affecting roughly one half of all women. But sometimes, asymmetry can make a woman feel self-conscious when naked or in a swimsuit.

All of us have issues with our body or our appearance that we’re not happy with, but we can’t do much about. If you have narrow shoulders. If you’re shorter or taller than you’d like. If you have fair skin that gets hammered by the sun. Stuff like that. But if you don’t like your […]
