13 Struggles Only Women with Small Breasts Understand

While growing up they told you to stay patient but now when you’re in your mid 20’s your life seems to be a lie. You’ve waited long, long enough and stared down your chest hoping for a miracle. But life is hard and when life gives you lemons you can’t really do much or can you? And when the world pays so much attention to big breasts, it becomes really for women with small boobs to not feel insecure. Well, I feel you bestie ;_;

Here are 13 struggles that we all can totally relate to.

When God doesn’t bless you with a great pair of bosoms, you create a masterpiece of your own. Going under the knife can be pretty scary and expensive, so you found a cheaper and effective way. You spent an entire year mastering the skill of boob contouring.

Finding bras for small breasts has always been a task for you. The smallest bra size also seems to be too big for you. You’ve befriended the push-up section of all bra stores and splurged on all kinds of push bras from Level 1 to Level 3 and from solids to lace. ‘Push up bra for small breasts’ has always topped your Google search history while shopping for lingerie online. But the sad part is even push-ups don’t look push-ups on you. Your only fear has been watching your BAE open a chips packet and getting disappointed. You know what I mean…

You’ve come to terms with the fact that unicorns are not real and similarly, cleavage for you is not real, it just doesn’t exist. No matter how much contouring you do or how much you work out to increase your breast size. This is something that will stay alienated to you. RIP low neckline tops & dresses.

You’ve checked out guys and felt insecure because they have bigger boobs than you. Now that’s something you had never imagined. It’s a weird nightmare to have a boyfriend with boobs bigger than yours. Can you live with that complex?

Strapless bras, tube tops and bandeau dresses- these fashion lingos don’t exist in your vocabulary and wardrobe. Such outfits need something, some curve to stay put. But well in your case it all goes down the slope. 😭

Bra talks with your big-breasted girls have been a bit awkward. They talk about how a 36 C doesn’t fit them right & share their bra problems. But you know nothing! You’ve got 99 problems but bra ain’t one. At least not in that way. You’ve been wearing teenage bras and sports bras all your life. You’ve never experienced the stabs of underwired bras or back pain because of heavy breasts. You do not understand what a 36 C even mean. (sighs) Sports bra has always been your go-to bra be it for work or party.

Every time you put up your sports bra in the wash, the pads fall out or worst get lost. You’re constantly irritated with having to put those pads back in the bra again & again.


You wish they made bras that were smaller than A cup maybe – A cup? You’ve doubted the bra makers; they make a cup B or Cup C and call it cup A. Shopping bras for small breasts has always ended up in awkward conversations with the salesperson.

There’s always been a hell lot of extra space in your bras and you’ve smartly utilized this space for keeping your essentials. Money, keys, lip balm, you’ve got your tiny little world in there. Who likes to carry a bag anyways!


Do you even wear a bra? Bras or band-aids, what do you prefer? Have you heard about implants? These are some frequently asked questions just to make you feel worse about your boobs.


You’ve tried all kinds of junk food, eaten lots of rice and drank a lot of banana shake just hoping to gain some weight in the right places. But thanks to your metabolism no luck.

You have tried all sorts of ‘desi-nuskhe’ and even those fancy breast enhancing creams only to find out that you’ve been fooled. 

No one, literally no one, can tell whether you’re wearing a bra or not. It isn’t a good thing. That means you look the same with & without a bra.
