Chest or Breast

When we use the word chest, it can refer to the chest area of either a man or a woman. Breast only has this meaning in an older literary sense.

A very effective stretching exercise for your legs is bringing your knee to your chest.

In modern usage, the word breast mostly refers to a woman’s breasts in particular (e.g. when we’re talking about nursing babies, buying bras, or breast cancer).

In fitness class, women should wear a bra to support their breasts.
