Dear Dish-it: My Boobs Are Too Small!
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?

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.
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.
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!
