Can it be possible for stress to delay breast growth?

In brief: Not

The normal stresses and strains of everyday life will not change breast development.
Severe physical stress such as a severe, prolonged illness; malnutrition/starvation; tumors of the pituitary gland; tumors of the ovaries; or other severe illnesses that affect the delicate balance of hormones needed for breast growth CAN alter it. But in America, this is fortunately VERY uncommon. Good luck!
