I'm not super self conscious about myself; I'm just curious. I'm 16 and a 36B, the same size as my mom. I've heard that the size of your breasts will most likely be the same size as your family members's. The problem is that my mom and my mom's sister have really small breasts and my dad's sister and dad's mom have pretty big ones. My dad's family is much heavier than my mom's family. I'm not as large as my dad's side but not as skinny as my mom's side. I haven't needed to change my bra size in about two years so I was wondering if my breasts would ever grow. Also, one appears to be more developed than the other. Will that change as well? Thanks

Often, yes, your breast size will be similar to other members of your family, but not always, and it's likely that you're not quite done growing yet so you may notice some changes over the next few years. It's impossible to predict though what those changes might be or whether your breasts will get any larger.

When you say that one breast seems to be more developed than the other, are you referring to size? It's very typical for one breast to be slightly larger than the other (people are very rarely perfectly symmetrical) but if there's a significant size difference that's making you uncomfortable or you're concerned about your breast development, checking in with a healthcare provider never hurts.
