Why are breasts so variable in size?

What could account for the fact that human female breasts vary so widely in size, within a range that is considered normal? Everybody knows women whose breast size, from one individual to another, varies within a range of about 10:1 ratio, and are considered normal size.

Is there any other part of the human body that can vary that much in size from one healthy person to another? Or, for that matter, in any other species of animal?
