Why Having Small Boobs Shouldn’t Make You Feel Any Less Sexy

When I was in seventh grade, I noticed a remarkable phenomenon; my boobs started growing! I was excited to finally have something there. Unfortunately, that was not the start, but rather the end of them growing. I am as small as they come. A 32A…how embarrassing. I feel like I should still be wearing a training bra or something. I mean, what am I going to do? Get a boob job? (Well…maybe). When I talk about being a girl with small boobs,

I mean no boobs.

If you have a B cup, in my books you’re blessed. When you have small boobs people may try to compliment you with things like ‘Oh, but they make you look really skinny’. Are you freaking kidding me? ‘They will get bigger, trust me.’ Except, I am 23. No, they won’t. My personal favorite ‘You can wear anything you want’ Yeah you’r right, I can…but I will look like a 12 year old boy while I’m at it.

The fact is, it’s really hard to feel sexy when you don’t have boobs. You feel inferior to others. For instance, I love boating, but I hate taking pictures when I’m in a bikini. I don’t hate my body, and I have confidence, but it’s harder to maintain that confidence when everyone in the picture has boobs except for you. You could be a total 10, but you know guys are noticing that you are the one that is lacking up top. I can’t begin to tell you how many articles I’ve read about getting a bikini that will flatter your small chest. None of them work, and to be honest, I end up crying in the dressing room each spring.

A lot of clothes are not flattering on me. Most clothes actually emphasize how small my boobs truly are. Where there should be cleavage, there is just a bra…and it sucks. Some girls have suggested a push up bra. I went to Victoria Secret and tried on every single one, but sadly it doesn’t work if there is nothing to push up. There is a common misconception that small chested women can go everywhere without a bra. We can, but we look like we are in elementary school.

Let’s get on a subject that is close to every woman’s heart, men. We should be confident in who we are, but let’s face it; What guys say to us is very influential. It can completely make our day or leave a huge scar on our ego. A guy told me once that I didn’t have boobs. Of course, I just laughed it off, what else was I supposed to do? Cry? Well, I did a lot of that later. What about when you’re kissing a really hot guy and you know he is going to feel you up? Well, the only thing he is going to be grabbing is your bra. I am hoping at this point he can’t tell the difference. You’ll never let a guy take your shirt off because you know he’ll be looking forward to boobs.

Boobs that don’t exist.

I wish I had a great all-encompassing piece of advice that would make you small-chested beauties out there see yourself in a more positive light. I wish I could make you see how beautiful you are. I wish society wouldn’t focus so much on boobs. But I can’t change those things. My only hope is that you can see yourself for more than your body, and that you can accept the truly smart, kind, and extraordinary person you have the potential to live up to. Those things are within your power. And as for the boobs? F*ck it, and let those puppies free.
