Dear Dish-it: My Boobs Are Too Small!

Mar 22, 2013

Dear Dish-it,

I'm 14 and I don't have boobs. I only have little breast buds that have been there for over 3 years. My little sister has bigger boobs than me! Will mine ever grow?! Will I ever be normal?

Small Freak

Dear Small Freak,

First and foremost, you are normal. Just because your breasts are smaller than your younger sister's doesn't make you any less normal. All bodies grow at a different pace, and all bodies develop in different ways. Just because you are blood related doesn't mean that you will ultimately have the same size breasts as your sister. That's like saying that, because you're sisters, you're both guaranteed to be the same height, or have the same hair or eye color. It just doesn't work that way. There is no definition of normal. So whatever body you are blessed with is normal for you.

Breast Growth

As for your breasts, they still have time to grow. Puberty doesn't end once you get your first period. The truth is, breasts never stop growing. However, they typically stop having drastic growth spurts between the ages of 16 and 19.

Own It!

Sometimes, woman just don't get large boobs. Look at celebrities like Kate Hudson or Keira Knightley. They have very small breasts, yet they are still vibrant, beautiful, desirable woman. So remember, if your breasts don't wind up growing to the size you'd hoped for, own it. Own who you are and the body you were born with. Boobs or no boobs, there's nothing more attractive than a girl who's confident in her own skin!

hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
