Why is my entire left side slightly/yet noticebly fatter than my right?

I am not left-handed, yet, for some reason, my entire left side body is fatter than my right. I know it is not muscle because I am Stonger on my right. Yet, my thigh, shin, breast, arm, and ankle--all bigger on my left. However, I actually just now noticed that my Wrist and Ankle are actually smaller on my left. Sorry if that was confusing--just wondering why most of the parts are larger. :)

I also played soccer since I could walk all through college. So about 15 years of competitive play and training. I played Right wing mid, and heavily favored my right side. I can concur from personal experience that I feel this has led to an imbalance. Mostly in strength and performance, but I'm sure if I measured closely, in appearance as well.

Because you're right-handed, it is likely that your right side is more efficient at movements, so your left side requires more muscle to be equally efficient at those movements.

i have this, I attribute it to playing soccer my whole childhood, about 10 years worth of at least 3 seasons of soccer into my late teens, and favoring my right side and especially my right leg. I noticed it then, and I notice it whenever I gain weight now, my left saddle bag always holds more then my right. it might just be that you always favored your right side over your left so your left side tends to hold more fat tissue then muscle tissue. make sense?
