15 Reasons To Love Your Small Chest

If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting for your boobs to grow in since you were 11 years old.

I’m 20 now, but I still have some hope. I’ve experienced a lot of teasing and felt a lot of shame for my small chest, especially in middle and high school.

The first time I recall being teased for my flat chest is 7th grade. I was made fun of for my “negative A’s,” and I’d even been told I have the body of a Wii remote (that was a good one, I’ll give them that). I bought and wore my first bra in 9th grade, and I was obviously way behind the pack. I remember trying so hard to cover up the fact that I was lacking in assets. I never wore sports bras at sports practices, I usually changed for gym in the bathroom, and I bought heavily padded bras. I drank soy milk, and Googled “how to make your boobs bigger” more times than I’m ready to admit. It wasn’t until college that I started to embrace my body and find the positives in my small chest. I began to see so many beautiful women with small breasts and realized that I could be beautiful without DD’s, too.

Contrary to popular belief, your body is beautiful regardless of your bra size. Natural breasts come in all sizes, A-Z and even the letters after. It’s time to love that letter, no matter what it is. Here’s a few reasons to love your little A’s, despite anything anyone has ever told you.

1. Going commando

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F08%2F636035506651200158945329261_commando.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=901&h=90d48c7bf29675587367b28a5066ed075f245943ebcd2293bd1f915e557ccae3&size=980x&c=1215218956 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F08%252F636035506651200158945329261_commando.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D901%26h%3D90d48c7bf29675587367b28a5066ed075f245943ebcd2293bd1f915e557ccae3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1215218956%22%7D" expand=1]

It’s so much easier to go commando with a small chest. You don’t always actually need a sports bra or a padded bra, and it’s much more comfortable without. Freedom has never felt so good.

2. Sports bras

Did you know that some women have to wear two sports bras to stay comfortable while exercising? I’ll be over here in my $5 sports bra, whether I’m exercising or going on a date. Because it looks the exact same as if I were wearing a regular bra anyway.

3. Endless bra choices

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F08%2F6360354993816265212003761806_training%2520bra.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=817&h=df454105cb44e489534e06a77d340c49e350a2116b41069a137ad5576797d6a6&size=980x&c=1308674538 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F08%252F6360354993816265212003761806_training%252520bra.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D817%26h%3Ddf454105cb44e489534e06a77d340c49e350a2116b41069a137ad5576797d6a6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1308674538%22%7D" expand=1]

If you do decide to wear a bra, you have free reign to go strapless, bandeau, cheap, expensive, demi or padded. While some women find these uncomfortable due to their chest size or need to pay high prices to keep the wire from popping through the sides, we’ve got all the options in the world.

4. Gravity can't touch you

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F6360352429727156411816246618_saggy%2520booobs.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=379&h=4c7f6cfec0aab63a940d28b2ccf24986f042d9221263ee3a31700ae5c62d3795&size=980x&c=2195098262 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F6360352429727156411816246618_saggy%252520booobs.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D379%26h%3D4c7f6cfec0aab63a940d28b2ccf24986f042d9221263ee3a31700ae5c62d3795%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2195098262%22%7D" expand=1]

Let’s talk about aging. The smaller the boobs, the less sagging you’ll experience as you age. You’re gonna be one sexy grandma.

5. Finding a bra your size

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F08%2F636035504606762399-650972807_found%2520bras.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=498&h=fca83f81400578ee6810e5ce9b6eae176b7e5f93b8908001de0fed93f4777ff5&size=980x&c=3303460876 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F08%252F636035504606762399-650972807_found%252520bras.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D498%26h%3Dfca83f81400578ee6810e5ce9b6eae176b7e5f93b8908001de0fed93f4777ff5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3303460876%22%7D" expand=1]

Chances are, your bra size can always be found in Victoria’s Secret, Aerie, Walmart, Target or even Dollar General. Count your blessings, because we never have to special order a bra to fit our bodies.

6. No backaches

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F08%2F6360358518298526641682116820_drake%2520walk.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=398&h=a2b478cd894b471d9277442675c00a26961a99dac2ace726a4b7cf42f358a7dd&size=980x&c=704559811 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F08%252F6360358518298526641682116820_drake%252520walk.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D398%26h%3Da2b478cd894b471d9277442675c00a26961a99dac2ace726a4b7cf42f358a7dd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D704559811%22%7D" expand=1]

We’re not holding anything heavy here, which saves our shoulders and backs from the aching that many others experience daily. We're free to strut our stuff with good posture and no back pain.

7. Laying on your stomach

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F08%2F6360358531455798311003568166_corgi%2520belly%2520flop.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=345&h=ba721807d84790f321a48a0b14a5f1483ab3da62aeebbb3f91f7b0053cd48ee6&size=980x&c=1408971418 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F08%252F6360358531455798311003568166_corgi%252520belly%252520flop.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D345%26h%3Dba721807d84790f321a48a0b14a5f1483ab3da62aeebbb3f91f7b0053cd48ee6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1408971418%22%7D" expand=1]

We can sleep however we want without breasts getting in the way or causing us pain when we lay on our stomachs. Also, belly flops.

8. Weeding out the "Boob Guys"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F07%2F6360352434274929321271385634_boob%2520guy%2520barnie.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=875&h=de489c0af5ba9534a5fae2e7b79c483fec3ce93e384a3a8fad6667d5222676af&size=980x&c=2860006338 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F07%252F6360352434274929321271385634_boob%252520guy%252520barnie.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D875%26h%3Dde489c0af5ba9534a5fae2e7b79c483fec3ce93e384a3a8fad6667d5222676af%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2860006338%22%7D" expand=1]

People who consider themselves “boob guys” have no place here… Or anywhere for that matter. In all, you attract fewer sexist men.

9. Low-cut shirts

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F08%2F636035906013039754-2114187892_cleavage.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=236&h=259f4f2acca22edc42999491652efa55adb562b88d70eed2c36e5bb7ca3dee64&size=980x&c=3968431252 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F08%252F636035906013039754-2114187892_cleavage.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D236%26h%3D259f4f2acca22edc42999491652efa55adb562b88d70eed2c36e5bb7ca3dee64%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3968431252%22%7D" expand=1]

Nobody can hate on your deep cleavage, because you don't really have cleavage!

10. Working out is so much easier

There's nothing getting in your way on the tricep machine, you can run for as long as your want, and you aren't lifting an extra couple pounds when you squat.

11. Accidental nip slips aren't an issue.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F08%2F6360358602165030211713993627_nip%2520slip%2520mean%2520girls.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=525&h=d817e4d6dcd0b494c948e84a3123a4d205515050f6f4cd38155d8f178f699962&size=980x&c=4138347847 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F08%252F6360358602165030211713993627_nip%252520slip%252520mean%252520girls.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D525%26h%3Dd817e4d6dcd0b494c948e84a3123a4d205515050f6f4cd38155d8f178f699962%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4138347847%22%7D" expand=1]Nothing to see here, folks!

12. Less risk for breast cancer

Studies have shown that women with smaller breasts are generally at a lesser risk for breast cancer, 1) because there is less breast tissue and 2) doctors are less likely to miss a tumor during a breast exam when examining a smaller breast.

13. They're cute!

Let’s face it: small boobs are cute. They’re pretty. They’re petite. Love them.

14. It means you're a woman.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F08%2F6360355053298178091448564031_strong%2520women.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=858&h=7bc9173f3afe5d7967d45292aa67df0fb94d9618025bfcb6e1bf76412389ae2b&size=980x&c=550592646 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F08%252F6360355053298178091448564031_strong%252520women.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D858%26h%3D7bc9173f3afe5d7967d45292aa67df0fb94d9618025bfcb6e1bf76412389ae2b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D550592646%22%7D" expand=1]

And women are cool. No matter their bra size. Size “negative A” to Z and beyond, there’s much more to you than your chest, because you’re a strong and powerful woman who don't need no body shame.

I am 20 years old and happily rocking a 34A (when I even decide to wear a bra). Your breasts are your own, to be used as sexually, motherly or womanly as you please. All it takes is a little confidence and, sometimes, a little cleavage contouring. The opinion of a sexist man or the bra sizes of all of your friends should not be able to make you feel any less about the beautiful body that is unique to you. So go run laps naked or burn your bra or bang your chest like a gorilla or something, because you can do that.

Student Life

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
