Big Boob Blues

Dear Dish-it,

My boobs are way bigger than all the other girls my age, and guys tease me and say mean things. Is there any way to make my boobs look smaller or stop growing? What do I do?


Dear bf,

Most well-endowed women (translation: women with large breasts) have grown to appreciate their curves, and you will probably feel the same way one day when you're a bit older. In fact, tons of girls with smaller boobs are probably going to be jealous of YOU in a few years!

Unfortunately, there's no way to make them smaller at the moment - unless you've got a serious problem, like your breasts are so large that your shoulders and back ache. If that's the case, then you should talk to your mom and ask her to make an appointment for you with your doctor, who can discuss something called breast-reduction surgery with you and talk to you about some of your other options to deal with the pain that having very large breasts can sometimes cause.

As for the guys that tease you, just smile at them, say “I like my body,” and walk away.

Oh, and a very important thing is to remind yourself that every time an immature guy makes a comment about your chest, it’s because he’s in awe of it. But if this continues to be a problem, consider talking to a school counselor about it - no one has the right to tease you or make you feel bad or self-conscious just for being who you are!

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
