We’ve all been blessed with them: breast, big or small, in your face or hidden.. Different is good! But how much do you really know about breast? Here’s 6 things you’ve always wanted to know.  

1. Your left breast is nearly always larger than the right one!

This is the case for at least 65% of all women. We admit.. we checked it on ourselves. You might think but how?! Well, it has something to do with the fact your left breast is closer to your heart and this gets more blood circulation.

2. 80% of all women wear the wrong size!
