To Note

The German word Brust has two versions: one with a plural and one without. If we’re referring to the general chest area of both men and women, we only use it in the singular. We only use the plural form (die Brüste) in reference to a woman’s breasts (e.g. when we’re talking about breastfeeding babies).
