Making Peace With My Small Boobs
Soon enough, the world would teach me to see the (bra) cup as half empty rather than half full.
That’s from Jennifer Miller, 34A.
Our big-boob obsessed culture creates plenty of body-conscious women who struggle with self-esteem. Here are some stories of women who came to appreciate themselves and their perky breasts.
Exuding sexiness > conventionally sexy appearance
In an Allure article Jennifer recalled,
I was sitting in the hallway at school one particular day I’ll never forget when a boy walked by and said to his friend, “Jen will be pretty — once she fills out.” His comment confirmed my fear that I would never have a boyfriend without the right breasts. And even if I did, how would we ever get to second base? Could he find second base if it was virtually invisible? I imagined a poor boy frantically racing around a baseball diamond, searching for a landmark too small to see.
That’s just one of many tales she tells. Yet as it turned out:
Not one of the guys I dated in high school jumped back in horror after removing my shirt. If they were a touch disappointed, they at least had the sense to not let it show. In college, I started to meet men whose insistence that they genuinely preferred small breasts served as a novel and interesting pickup line.
In her senior year she played a stripper/cocktail waitress in a school production of “Cabaret.” Others wore black satin bustiers while she wore a sexy camisole. But to her surprise,
I discovered that exuding sexiness was far more important than having a conventionally sexy appearance.
So she was feeling good. Until her fiancé admitted that, as a “breast man,” he had hesitated proposing marriage for fear of, “sentencing himself to a long, if happy, life without gigantic gazongas.”
She was more surprised than disappointed. But he wasn’t quite what she’d envisioned, either, having yearned for a tall, macho cowboy, when Jason was just five-seven.
But his words haunted her and she wondered if he’d always seen her as a disappointment.
Buying a bridal gown just made things worse.
She’d wanted a dress that hugged her “curves-such as they were.” But one sales staff insisted her breasts would “ruin the integrity of the dress… as though the integrity of my body were utterly irrelevant.”
Then she realized that,
I was responsible for making the dress look beautiful, not the other way around. It was a lesson I’d learned again and again growing up with a small bust: The size of my chest mattered far less than the amount of pride I put behind it.
And it turns out that Jason likes her breasts very much; he just didn’t actively prefer small boobs over big ones.
Almost fills an A-Cup
And then there’s Amy at Literally Darling, who almost fills an A cup. Among her “Top Ten Small-Boob Problems” are:
- Realising you could actually just wear child bras. Sexy.
- Lying down and your boobs disappear altogether.
- You know your boyfriend loves you just as you are… but also that he wouldn’t be averse to you miraculously waking up with C-cup pups tomorrow morning.
But she can still see their beauty:
That said, I can’t bring myself to hate my boobs. Bless ‘em: they’re a cheerful pair, and they’re pretty in their own way.
Top 10 reasons for loving small breasts
And then there is Jamie SC, writing for A Year in Skirts. She says small breasts are lovely and beautiful. Among her top 10 reasons for loving them:
- They never bug you when you run or do any other physical activity.
- People focus on your face.
- Greater sensitivity. You feel more pleasure. A University of Vienna study found that, “Larger breasts have more fatty tissue than glandular tissue, which is the most sensitive part. With smaller breasts, the glands are easier to stimulate during foreplay because they’re not underneath a fatty layer.” (Note: Well-endowed women can feel the love too-they just need a stronger touch.)
- There are plenty of men out there who really like a small bust. Just like there are men who prefer a thicker lady. Read the many comments left by males on the 007b.com website… Mostly though, men like whatever bust happens to be on the lady they’ve fallen in love with.
So all you petite ladies out there, it’s time to start loving yourselves and your perky breasts.
