Be breast aware

Your breasts will change throughout your life. Being familiar with your breasts and getting to know how they feel at different times will help you understand what's normal for you. The best way to do this is to Look, Lurve, Learn - every month.

  • Look - at the shape and appearance of your breasts and nipples in the mirror with your hands by your sides. Raise your arms above your head and have another look.
  • Lurve - your pair by having a good feel. Feel all of your breasts and nipples looking for anything that isn't normal for you. Feel from your collarbone to below the bra-line and under your armpit too.
  • Learn - what is normal for you! Breasts come in all different shapes and sizes, so get to know your normal. See your Doctor if you notice any changes.

Getting advice

If you have any questions or worries about your breasts, talk to your Mum, someone in your family, a teacher, your school nurse or your Doctor.
