Why are my breasts more uneven now?

I had slightly asymmetrical breasts before I got pregnant, and now it seems like they're more uneven. Why?
Submitted by American Baby Team

Breasts are incredibly sensitive to hormones. If you're lopsided to begin with, the smaller side will be less receptive to hormones because there's less breast tissue, so both breasts won't grow at the same rate during pregnancy. In addition, if a woman with equal-sized breasts has had surgery on one, the scarred breast may also be less receptive to pregnancy hormones.  --Robin McGavin
