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!

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
