Does birth control really make your boobs bigger??
So I’m really paranoid by the size of my boobs. I know, everyone says to just wait and you’ll learn to love you flaws. But people in my town always make such a big deal about them, and I just want to get over this. I heard that birth control can make your breast’s bigger and I just wanted to know if it was true? Or if ANYTHING else works besides getting fat or getting surgery.
Lots of gURLs are self-conscious about their breasts — even those who have big boobs.
The size of your bust depends upon how much fat you tend to store there, which is determined by factors like your genes, your weight, your health and your age. Currently, there’s no real way to do that besides getting plastic surgery. Even gaining weight doesn’t guarantee larger breasts, since everyone’s body fat gets distributed in different ways.
Going on birth control pills just to get bigger boobs is definitely not your best option. While some pills do make your breasts larger because of the extra estrogen in your system, that’s not true for all of them. Not everyone experiences the same side effects, so what happens to one gURL might not happen to you.
If you really want to change the appearance of your breasts, try wearing push-up bras. Padded bras like The Miraculous Bra from Victoria’s Secret promises to make you appear up two cup sizes. And certain exercises on your pectoral muscles (the ones underneath your breasts) can make your bust look perkier.
I know it’s hard to hear that you just need to accept your body, but it’s a cliché because it’s the truth. Everyone may seem obsessed with boobs, but the most attractive gURL is the one who’s comfortable in her own skin. Seriously.
