I get to read questions from you guys every single day, and a lot of you ask about how to have more confidence and how to learn to love yourself. One of the most common topics? Small boobs. If I had a dollar for every time you guys asked about “dealing with” small boobs, I would have a whole lot of cash right now.
To be completely honest here, I don’t have small boobs, so I’m not going to pretend to understand what you guys feel like when you write about it. But what I can understand is that feeling of disliking a part of your body, with no control over what’s happening with it. It’s not a great feeling at all, and I wish no one ever had to deal with it.
If you’re unhappy with your small boobs, you’re not alone. But seriously? You shouldn’t be. I know it’s easier to say “love your little boobies!” than to actually really love them, but hear me out: boobs are great, no matter what size they are. Boobs are awesome! I hear lots of guys and girls say that they don’t care what size boobs are – as long as they’re looking at or touching boobs, they’re happy.
But I know that in the end, it doesn’t matter how many other people like your breasts – it only matters if you do. If you want some help on feeling confident and happy about your chest, read on. This Reddit thread gives us 12 real girls who will show you how to be confident about your small boobs. Soon, you’ll forget why you ever wanted them to grow!
Remember That The Grass Is Always GreenerMoritani: Grass is always greener, I think. Imagine walking into the bra section of a department store. Now imagine that the beautiful bras all turn beige and white, with no decoration and the straps look like seat belts. That's a big boob reality. Imagine never being able to buy a shirt that doesn't stretch, big boob reality. Waking up to a bra smothering you because it's pushing your boobs so hard you can't breathe? Big boob reality. I used to hate my boobs, too. Because they're big and annoying. But, you just have to accept them as they are. Big, small or average. They're your boobs, and your boobs are a part of you. It's not about putting down girls with big boobs to make yourself feel better, it's just about remembering that things aren't always as great as you think they are.
Remind Yourself Of How Gorgeous Small Breasts Can BePrincessBukowski: There's a lot of good advice here, but something else you can do is look at pictures of women like Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, Gisele Bundchen, Emma Watson, Emma Stone, etc. They are all known for being conventionally sexy and adored, and they also have small breasts. On top of that, make sure to compare their candid photos to their professional magazine pictures - you'll notice that their chests are much smaller in real life. Exactly. Don't just look at photos of Kate Upton or Sofia Vergara and feel miserable about your boobs. Empower yourself with photos of celebs with small boobs who totally rock them.

Know That Not Everyone Cares What Size You Aretvvat_waffle: I'm an A cup. I'm only 5'2", but I was shamed for them a lot in highschool- but only by other girls. I've never met a guy who cared, and I've actually gotten a lot of compliments because I'm not saggy, or veiny, and I have a decent nipple size. I'm sure your boobies are absolutely beautiful. Love yourself! It's important to remember that you're probably the person thinking about your breast size the most. The majority of people out there will be into your boobs even if they're small. Everyone has preferences, of course, but you'll find that most people don't care as much as you think they do. Source: ShutterStock
Think About Why Your Boobs Are Awesomeme_myself_iii: Part of the itty bitty titty committee here! I used to be really worried about my boobs (mostly because I thought it would stop me from being conventionally sexy). There are times when I still feel a bit insecure about them, but I just like to focus on why my boobs are awesome! I can wear certain clothes big busted girls don't like to wear. (like really low shirts) no bra > bralettes > bras (so many possibilities because our boobies are naturally perky) They won't sag! They look elegant, in my opinion. Take pride in your boobies! Write down the cool things about your boobs and look at it every time you're feeling bummed. Source: Dollskill
Focus On What You Do Like About Yourselfrxbin: Hey girl! I have very similar numbers to yours, 5'10 tall, 136 lbs and cup AA/A. I used to feel pretty insecure (and still am from time to time) about them too, always wished they were bigger too. What helped me was trying to focus on other parts of my body. For example, I started to give more attention to my butt (which is glorious) and doing some weightlifting. It helped me to see that boobs aren't the only thing that's interesting on your body, there are so many features of you that are worth noticing! This is a great tip. You may not find a ton of love for your boobs, but that doesn't mean you can't love other parts of your body. Source: ShutterStock
Know That Changing One Thing Won't Change Your LifeSilvercelt: Well, you look like all those high fashion models. Plenty of guys out there like tiny boobs. The truth is, that no matter what our cup size, most of us aren't happy with it. Women are always battling self image. I'm too tall, I'm too thin, I'm too short, I'm too fat. We all seem to think that if we could just be a little thinner, have bigger boobs etc. we could be happy. It really isn't true; some of the most beautiful people in the world are miserable. My advice: you're built like a fashion model. Own that sh*t and rock it! You might think that if you only had bigger boobs, your life would be different, but no... it really wouldn't change THAT much. Source: FashionStock.com / Shutterstock.com
Think About The Positivesalyssajones: Growing up, from puberty on, I was so jealous of all the girls with boobs. I wanted cleavage, I wanted curves. Now, I am so glad for my small chest. I can lay on my stomach. I can skip wearing a bra for most of the winter. I can jog and jump. And the best part is men look at my face when I talk to them. Being really tall and skinny can feel awkward as hell. You'll get through it, though. Again, remembering the good things about your small boobs is really important. Source: ShutterStock
Think About Even More Perks!kati_e_ 49: Let me just tell you the perks (ha!) Of the itty bitty titty committee: A. Perky! Always perky all the time! B. More sensitive. C. Can do stairs without plopping around. D. Easy to find swim suits E. Going braless is an option F. Bralettes and stuff like that! G. Boob tubes (why can't i remember the actual name?!) are a viable option for support H. Button down shirts actually button down I. Strapless bras do their damn job! J. You can wear strapless stuff without having to plunder the seven seas for a suitable bra to support underneath K. Backless things without having to hide a bra! Love yo titties girl! More things to add to your list! Source: ShutterStock
You Can Make Them Look Bigger If You Really Want Tounspeakable16: I don't think anyone has mentioned this yet, but since contouring is so popular now, some people add contouring to their chest to add depth and definition. I follow a lot of transgender Youtubers who go the extra length to enhance their chest. Usually while taking hormones or before their top surgery, from what I've noticed. The techniques are simple, and while this is not an everyday fix, it may make you feel more confident on a night out :) I just want to add that you are a beautiful woman with or without big boobies. Don't let this current generation of "curvy is in" make you feel like you don't belong. Work what you got girl, and let your confidence shine. It's the sexiest thing you could ever own. Exactly. You DO have options to make your boobs look bigger (makeup, push-up bras, padded bras), so if you would feel happier doing that, do it. Otherwise, just accept 'em the way they are!
Know That Your Breast Size Doesn't Determine Who You AreUlgraTheTerrible: In today's society, where we're continually told what we should look like and how we don't measure up, (pun intended) this is a fairly common thing to worry about, but yeah, to be totally honest, it is kind of silly. If the boob fairy arrived tonight and bumped you up to a respectable B or C... You'd maybe find it easier to find clothes that fit well, but beyond that, it wouldn't change you that much, besides maybe giving you a bit of a confidence boost. And, er, for the record, I'd kill to have your problem. I'm about 5'6, but my bra size doesn't really exist so much, especially as I'm somehow relatively small-chested for how, ahem, "large" I am. It doesn't bother me so much, save for how difficult it is to find clothes for fat girls that don't gape in the boob area. Source: ShutterStock
Accept That You Don't Love This Part Of Yourselfhigginsnburke: Never feel like how you honestly want your body to be like is an invalid opinion. You don't have to be thrilled with every aspect of your body, but if you aren't it also doesn't mean you have to be ruled by those dislikes. Additionally, if someone doesn't like you because of your boobs. ... I say bullet dodged! Exactly. Don't beat yourself up because you don't totally love your boobs. It's okay to not be thrilled with one thing. Just don't HATE them. Source: ShutterStock
Fake It Till You Make ItMe_in_KC: 5'10, 36/B here (age 32). For the longest time I was insecure about my "small chest", especially with a sister who is super curvy. Stand up straight and be proud! Seriously, good posture improves a chest like you wouldn't believe, and it helps boost your confidence. Eventually, you'll find an SO who thinks you and your boobs, whatever size, are perfect. It's natural to wish for things we don't have, and there's nothing wrong with that so long as you recognize what makes YOU great and love all of you. Pretend to be confident and one day you'll really feel confident. Source: ShutterStock
