The advantages of having small breasts are often overlooked. Women can make a fortune from their enhanced assets, and the media encourages us to think that we are not “real” women without large breasts. So we are given the message that there are no reasons to love small breasts. That´s just not true! There are lots of advantages of having small breasts – read on and find out …
1. Cheaper Bras
One of the main complaints that women with larger breasts have is the difficulty of finding bras in larger sizes. The bigger the cup size, the harder it is to find a range that goes up to that size. And even if they can find bras that fit, they are very expensive and tend not to be available in pretty styles. Smaller women, however, have a lot more choices and don't need to pay as much. This is definitely one of the main reasons to love small breasts if you have them!
2. No Backache
Perhaps one of the major advantages of small breasts is that you will never suffer the backache that some women have to put up with. Large breasts can really make a woman´s life difficult, and even cause her a lot of pain. Believe me, some of them would really envy your smaller breasts!
3. You Get What You´re Given!
Another of the reasons to love small breasts is that unless you want to go through painful, expensive and unnecessary surgery, you get what nature gives you. So, since you can´t easily do anything about it, why not learn to be happy with what you've got? There really is no point wishing that you were different, and there is nothing wrong with the way you are.
What is wrong with being happy with your natural body? I really don´t understand why so many women are so unhappy with the way they look. As I stated above, we get what we´re given. Breast size is part of that. Love the way you are – you´ll be a lot happier than if you spend your time wishing you looked different!
One of the great reasons to love small breasts is that we don´t suffer the same problems our better-endowed sisters do as we get older. Heavier breasts unfortunately tend to droop with age – happily that´s something smaller breasts won´t do. So look on the bright side!
6. Fit Your Frame
Women with slender frames tend to have small breasts. It´s about proportion. If you´re on the slight side, large breasts would make you look like you were about to topple over! Implants look ridiculous on thin women – larger breasts belong on women who have the frame to support them.
Having small breasts makes choosing clothes a lot easier. Many women with larger breasts find it very difficult to get tops that fit, because the garments aren´t designed to accommodate them. With small breasts, you can wear strappy tops without having to worry about bra straps showing!
8. Not Just a Pair of Breasts!
Ask any woman with ample breasts and she will tell you about men staring at her breasts, as if there is nothing more to them. Women are still treated as if having large breasts means that they don´t have any brains. Obviously that´s not so, but it´s one irritation that the small-breasted woman will never have to put up with.
9. You Don't Have to Wear a Bra
Depending on the type of shirt you're wearing, you don't have to subject your chest to "boob jail." Seriously, wearing a bra can sometimes be the complete opposite of what you want to do that day! If you do feel like you need some coverage, then a bandeau is a suitable option. I know plenty of women that would love to trade in their bras for either one of these options.
A lot of women struggle with the proportions of their body. Sometimes a persons chest is "too big" for their body and sometimes it's "too small." Studies show that a lot of men actually like women with exaggerated proportions. So if you're one of those women who feel like your upper half doesn't match your lower half, don't worry about it!
11. Bathing Suits
If I had a dollar for every time a girl with a bigger chest said that it's hard to find a bathing suit top that stays up, I'd be rich! Women with larger breasts sometimes have a hard time finding tops that look good, fit correctly, or stay up. With a smaller chest, a lot of those problems disappear. It's definitely a gift.
12. Easier to Work out
Jumping jacks, jumping rope, or absolutely anything else that involves jumping is so much easier when you have a smaller chest! Women with bigger chests have to struggle to find an extra supportive sports bra to make their workouts comfortable. Be glad you never have to worry about that!
13. Laying on Your Stomach
It sounds like a ridiculous reason to be grateful, but laying on your stomach when you have a larger chest is hard! Whether it's to sleep, get a massage, or get a tan it's just downright hard to get comfortable. Luckily for you, you'll never have to worry about that!
So if you struggle to fill an A cup, you will now see that there are plenty of reasons to love small breasts. We should all learn to love ourselves as we are, and not wish that we were different. We are how we are! So enjoy the advantages of small breasts and forget about trying to aspire to an imperfect ideal. Are you a small-breasted woman who wishes she had more “up top”, or does having larger breasts cause you problems and make you wish you had less?
