A recent SAYS survey taken by over 23,000 Malaysian women revealed how they really feel about their breasts

In a joint effort with Kinohimitsu, we wanted to find out your truth about your breasts and asked some rather personal questions :)

Women are shamed all the time, especially for their bodies. Breasts are labelled as "too large," "too small," "too saggy," or "too perky..." we just can't win! Not to mention, if a woman desires a different bust size, she also gets shamed for that as well.

Well, we decided to break the taboo of breasts and talk about them! Here's what Malaysian women had to say:

1. More than 36% of women wish their breasts were bigger

Meanwhile, 21% of women said they wished their breast size was smaller, and 42% were happy just the way they are.

2. One in every three women enjoy a snack from between their cleavage

We asked if you'd ever eaten food you had found in your cleavage. Over 36% of respondents said yes, while 64% said no.

3. Over 3,300 women choose to sleep in a bra as they find it more comfortable

Women who choose to sleep with a bra on are definitely a minority - 45% admitted to accidentally falling asleep with a bra on and 38% said they would never sleep while wearing a bra.

4. Close to a whopping 80% of women believe that strapless bras are the work of the devil and shouldn't exist

In a landslide vote, over 78% of women showed their dissatisfaction with strapless bras.

5. Less than 700 women prefer going out braless

Taking only 3.4% of the vote, these women voiced their love for going completely braless. 25% of women said they didn't mind going braless depending on the outfit and occasion, while the vast majority of 71% admitted they would never go out without a bra.

6. 30% of women have one breast noticeable larger than the other
