For girls...
 
Breasts and vulva
 
Different sizes
Breast size and shape vary from one person to the next. Your left breast may even be a different size than your right breast, just like other parts of your body that aren’t perfectly symmetrical, like your feet. It’s also normal for the colour and size of your areola and nipple to differ from those of other people. During your lifetime, the shape of your breasts may also change depending on whether or not you take the Pill, if you are pregnant, if your weight changes, etc. There is no such thing as the perfect breasts!

Vulva: Like breasts, one’s vulva is unique and varies in colour and size from one person to another. There is no perfect vulva! There are different sizes of labia minora and labia majoria. Sometimes, labia minora outsize the labia majoria, and sometimes they aren’t perfectly symmetrical; this is totally normal. Much like our faces, they’re all different… thank goodness!!!

Beware of pornography and fashion magazines! Fashion magazines and pornography are not a reliable source of information regarding female anatomy or sexuality. The photos are often touched up and the individuals featured have often undergone plastic surgery. In reality, there are different shapes of breasts and vulva.
 
 
Attraction for your partner
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! You may think that the size of your breasts or the shape of your vulva are important factors in attracting or deterring sexual partners. But that’s not necessarily true! The intensity of pleasure felt by you and your partner is not related to the size or appearance of your breasts or vulva. Pleasure is about much more than anatomy!

 
Develop at your own pace
Changes occur over time! During adolescence, individual differences become more and more noticeable because girls develop at a different rate. But things even out over time!

 
Acceptance
Physical well-being. Are you worried about the size or appearance of your breasts or vulva? Are you uncomfortable with your body and do you avoid participating in certain activities (swimming or dance) for fear that you’ll have to get undressed in the locker room? Keep in mind that every body is different! Don’t judge yourself, hide or compare yourself needlessly to others; just accept yourself as you are!

 
Ask for help
If your worries persist and prevent you from doing activities you enjoy, ask for help from a friend, an adult or a professional you trust. You can also write to us or call us at Tel-jeunes.
