In the US, more is more and bigger is better. And at one point, I viewed my flat chest as a flaw akin to a birth defect (I am a little bit dramatic). But if I HAD gone under the knife, I'd be undoing it now. I would never give up my small boobs! And here are all the reasons why!
1. I can shop in the Girls/Children's Section for cute swim tops.
Teen/Girls swimsuits tend to be a little more colorful, trendy, and fun. And cost waaaaaay less. And being small, I don't need the 3-inch wide straps, the built-in-spanx, or underwire in my swimsuit. Which brings me to my next point...
2. I can skip the underwire. Or the entire bra.
All those cute strappy tops with built-in shelf-bras? We can wear them AAAAAALLLLL.
3. Eternal Youth
4. The perk of literal perkiness!
5. Shirts fit better in general
But hey, busty friends, an easy fix for the Button Boob Gap is to sew on one of those little snap buttons (so it's not visible) in between the gaping buttons, so you have additional points of closure!
6. We can sleep on our stomachs. Comfortably.
When I was nursing and my boobs grew 3-cup-sizes, I didn't realize how hard it is to even get comfortable in bed when you've got those honking gazoongas in the way. HOW DO YOU GUYS EVEN DEAL???
7. Exercising is way easier.
I also know women who double-up on the bras, yes, wear MORE THAN ONE BRA so they can do cardio, because it's the only way to strap those puppies down.
There are a TON of reasons why having small boobs is not the horrible disadvantage people say it is, and I could list them all day, but I'll end with this final one...
8. When straight men talk to me, I actually have a face.
When a straight guy is talking to me, he actually makes eye contact with me! I have a face, and he looks at it.
When I was bustier due to breastfeeding, I could not figure out why all these guys were afraid to make eye contact with me, why they were being so sheepish, until it hit me: they were staring at my new bigger boobs. And I was only in a regular top, not something low-cut. But when you have big boobs, it doesn't matter. You could be wearing a turtleneck, and guys will still know you have big boobs, and they'll look.
But thankfully, my boobs returned to their petite adorable size, and once again, straight men started noticing that I have a face and eyes and they can talk to me like an actual person, instead of a pair of tits.
For all the sex appeal that big boobs may have, I don't think it's worth the trade off. I quit feeling ugly or inferior about it a loooooong time ago, and no one can change my mind that small boobs are awesome!
Rock on, my flat sisters. We have always been the lucky ones!
