You have probably noticed that one breast is larger than the other, and you might have even considered this to be an abnormality.

For obvious reasons, the weight of a woman’s breasts vary depending on size. Studies have shown, however, that an average breast weighs around 0.5 kg, which means they make up only 1% of a woman’s body weight.

During adolescence and youth, breasts are made up of mammary glands, fat and colagen, which makes them more firm. With the passage of time, however, this is reduced and replaced by more fat. Generally, women that gain weight also see an increase in breast size, although this is not always the case.
