The Large Chest and Low Self-Esteem Connection

For many, a female with big boobs is usually viewed as quite the sex symbol that oozes with self-confidence.  However, be careful what you wish for! A recent study suggests that large and asymmetrical chested females are more prone to having concerns with their mental health.


Dr. Brian Lebow, the physician involved with this latest study, set out to analyze the effects of asymmetrical (uneven) and large breast sizes, pointing out that over 50% of women have asymmetrical breasts to begin with… but to different extents.


The study focused on 59 young women between the ages of 12 and 21 years who all had breasts differing by at least one cup size. About 40% of them had a condition called tuberous breast deformity – the technical term for when the breasts don’t develop normally; similar tests were carried out on a group of girls without breast asymmetry and in girls with macromastia (a condition in which the breasts are abnormally enlarged).

Researchers found that the girls with different-sized and larger breasts (compared to the girls with normal sized ones) scored lower for emotional wellbeing and self-esteem. They also discovered that having uneven breasts was connected with borderline issues in social functioning and even eating disorders.


The study suggests that the revelation of the impaired psychological wellbeing of adolescents with breast asymmetry could prove the need to intervene early on to reduce negative outcomes. This is where support and consultation could come into play.


Nevertheless, for young women that have stopped growing and still have different-sized breasts, corrective surgery could prove to help in emotional benefits and should possibly be considered based on the individual case in question.
