When it comes to ever-evolving fashion trends, certain terms grab our attention more than others. One such term that has been making waves in recent years is “side boob”.

Often associated with a provocative display of skin, it has become a symbol of style and confidence, especially among celebrities and influencers who consistently push the boundaries of conventional fashion norms.

But what lies beneath the surface allure of the “side boob” trend? Is there more to it than meets the eye?

Ahead, we’ll peel back the layers of the “side boob” trend, from its glamorous origins to the fashion choices that make it sizzle. We’ll also explore a hidden health concern that lurks beneath the surface, so stick around to learn more.

“Side boobs”: The cleavage trend that’s here to stay

The enduring cleavage trend that continues to capture attention is undoubtedly the “side boob”.

While the underboob trend had a brief moment in the spotlight earlier this year, the “side boob” has regained its throne as the favoured neckline cut among celebrities. It seems that nearly everyone who’s anyone is tastefully infusing their tops and dresses with a subtle side glimpse of their chest.

It strikes the perfect balance of allure without the sensation of complete exposure. With this approach, you’re offering just a hint of something special. Social media favourites like Bella Hadid, Chiara Ferragni, Olivia Culpo, and Emily Ratajkowski have confidently showcased their “side boob” looks.

The versatility of this trend provides numerous style options. Picture yourself at the next pool party – slip into a simple bodysuit designed to embrace the “side boob” aesthetic and pair it effortlessly with your favourite denim shorts.

The result? A laidback and fashion-forward appearance that’s right on point.

How women achieve “side boobs”

Breast augmentation, a widely sought-after procedure, works wonders in enhancing both the size and shape of your breasts. But the key to achieving your coveted “side boob” goals lies in making informed choices regarding the profile and thickness of your breast implants.

Here’s a crucial point to consider: if you’re on the leaner side with minimal body fat and opt for breast implants that are too thick for your frame or if you choose saline implants placed above the muscle, there’s a potential risk. You might end up noticing and feeling the edges of your breast implants, especially when you lean over.

Fat grafting can also work wonders to enhance your breast profile. The process involves extracting fat with abundant surplus through liposuction, processing it, and then grafting it to your breasts. 

This procedure can significantly elevate your overall breast profile, improve skin texture and shape and provide subtle lifting.

Get the most flattering “side boob” contour with Amaris B. Clinic

If you’re experiencing a loss of breast volume and shape, fat grafting emerges as a sought-after solution to make your “side boob” dreams a reality.

ADR-C Breast Enhancement (breast fat grafting) is a natural breast enlargement procedure, as it avoids the potential risks associated with breast implants, such as rejection.

This two-in-one procedure commences with Dr Ivan Puah, Amaris B. Clinic’s medical director, harvesting excess fat tissue from your body’s donor site, employing his patented proprietary MDC-Sculpt® Lipo technique.

Dr Puah’s MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique is a personalised contouring method that adapts to the distinct characteristics of your body shape, muscle curvature, fat anatomy, and skin elasticity.

Once collected, the fat undergoes a purification process to maintain the integrity of the fat cells. It is then reintroduced into the breast area using specialised blunt-tipped cannulas. Over time, these fat cells seamlessly integrate with the surrounding breast tissue, yielding more defined and firmer breasts.

The beauty of ADR-C Breast Enhancement lies in its ability to deliver natural, enduring results with minimal incisions and scarring. It also allows you to achieve a slimmer overall body silhouette while enhancing your breast size through a single procedure.

What if your “side boob” isn’t a “side boob”?

While the term “side boob” may conjure images of fashion-forward statements, there’s another side to this phenomenon that often goes unnoticed – and it can be a medical condition with its own set of complexities.

This condition is known as “accessory breast tissue” or “polymastia.” Essentially, it refers to breast tissue that forms outside the typical breast area.

This anomaly arises from a fascinating aspect of human development – the milk line. This invisible but crucial line runs from the armpit to the groin on both sides and during embryonic development, breast tissues develop along this path.

In most cases, the body efficiently absorbs additional tissues along this developmental journey. However, sometimes, this absorption process doesn’t go as planned, leading to the persistence of “accessory breast” tissue.

“Accessory breast” tissue can take various forms, often appearing as a lump or swelling beneath the skin. In some instances, it may resemble a mole or dimple, but it can also closely resemble a typical nipple, albeit usually smaller in size.

For those with “accessory breast” tissue, the armpit area, specifically the axillary region, is the primary location for this development. It’s not uncommon for individuals to experience swelling and tenderness in the armpit, particularly during pivotal stages such as puberty, menstruation, and post-delivery.

After giving birth, some women may find their armpit area engorged and painful. Remarkably, in many cases, there may be no visible nipple or areola. However, the presence of functional ducts capable of leaking milk is a possibility and can be observed in certain individuals.

Removing enlarged “axillary accessory breast” tissue safely and effectively
