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!

Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family
