Dealing with a flat bust

If you feel insecure about your small breasts, don't forget that you are beautiful just the way you are! There are a lot of women with big busts who are jealous of women with small breasts because there are many benefits associated with this, which you may not realize. Accept your body and remember that it is easier to find clothes that look good on you, exercise and have your breasts examined if you have small breasts. Boost your confidence by wearing clothes that look good on you and emphasize your body's strengths, such as embellished tops and items that emphasize your arms or waist.


Method 1 of 3: Accepting your body

Deal with Having a Flat Chest Step 1

Step 1. Accept your little bosom

A small bust has many advantages, such as the fact that you do not have to wear a bra and that it is easier to examine your breasts. Women with small breasts can also exercise more easily and you do not have back pain like women with large breasts.

Another advantage is that it is easier to find nice clothes that look good on you. You don't have to worry about that shirt that you can't button all the way up

Step 2. Go what your strengths are

Your personality is not defined by your small bosom. There are many other parts of your body that look good, so think about what you like about your body and your character. For example:

  • You have nice hands, long legs, a nice ass;
  • You listen well, you are a loyal friend or you have a great sense of humor.

Step 3. Practice your skills and do activities that make you feel good

Remember that you are beautiful and worth it, no matter the size of your bosom. Your appearance is only part of who you are. Make a list of the skills and talents you possess and the activities you like to do to remind yourself of all the things you know and can do to boost your confidence. For example:

  • You are a good swimmer or good at scoring on free throws;
  • You are organized, a nice friend or very artistic;
  • You can sing and dance well, excel in math or you can cheer someone up very well.

Method 2 of 3: Dress with confidence

Step 1. Choose garments that suit you

Garments that fit well emphasize the strengths of your body, as opposed to loose clothing. Go for garments that are fitted but not too tight. Avoid garments with pleats near your bust, as this will attract the wrong kind of attention.

If you have to wear something with pleats, the fabric in front of your breasts may be a little loose. You can ask a tailor to adjust this part to your figure

Step 2. Wear embellished tops to enhance the look of your bust

A top with fringes, pearls, various pleats, bows, pockets or zippers makes your bust look bigger. Pick something you like and wear it with a simpler bottom, such as pants or a skirt with a plain pattern.

By combining a shirt with decorations with an even bottom, you draw attention to the decorations

Step 3. Vary the necklines of your outfits

Thanks to your small bust, you can wear turtlenecks as well as a plunging neckline. Play with this and go for tops with interesting details. Tops or dresses without straps are perfect for women with small breasts.

Women with big breasts are not so lucky, because some tops don't fit their figure

Step 4. Wear horizontal stripes and create the illusion of a larger bust

Horizontal stripes make your body appear rounder, so it's the perfect choice for women with small breasts. Choose colors in contrasting colors, such as black and white or red and blue.

Try a striped dress or top with even colored pants

Step 5. Show your arms to take the attention away from your bosom

Accentuate your arms by wearing sleeveless tops or dresses. Combine a light top with a simple bottom, such as pants, instead of a short skirt with a tight top.

Bandeau tops are the perfect choice to show your arms and shoulders

Step 6. Wear high-waisted pants to show off your figure

This also counts for skirts and shorts. The fabric will show off your hips as it climbs up to your waist. This way you streamline your silhouette and draw attention to it.

Try high-waisted jeans and a V-neck t-shirt. Wear a nice necklace to complete your look

Step 7. Show your legs and draw attention to your bottom

Wear shorts or a mini skirt that emphasize your legs. Pair them with sandals or heels to really show off your legs. Go for a simpler top, such as a blouse with three-quarter sleeves instead of a navel sweater or bandeau top.

Remember that it is extremely important to maintain balance. You also want to look stylish and if you show too much, you will not achieve the desired effect

Step 8. Wear jewelry to draw attention to your chest

If you want to draw a little more attention to your chest, wear necklaces that pop out. Wear jewelry with large stones, lots of color or some bling. You can even combine some simple necklaces for an original look.

  • When combining chains, play with thick and thin chains. For example, you can try out a fragile necklace, a beaded necklace and a striking necklace.
  • Another tip is to combine different lengths. This way you keep your look in balance without drawing attention to one single place.

Step 9. Don't overfill your bra

You can perfectly wear a push-up bra or a bra with a little padding, but don't overdo it. Otherwise, your environment will notice that you walk around with a small bust one day and a C-cup the next.

When you buy push-up bras or padded bras, make sure they all have the same effect. You don't want to change your bra size every day

Method 3 of 3: Tackling bullies

Deal with Having a Flat Chest Step 13

Step 1. If possible, avoid your bullies

The best way to deal with bullies is to avoid them as much as possible. If they don't get a chance to tease you with their comments, you don't have to deal with their insults. Organize to avoid known bullies and eat at a different table or seat in the classroom.

  • If you have to sit next to a bully in class because of an assigned seat, you can switch seats. Explain to your teacher that the person sitting next to you is distracting your attention.
  • If the bullies are part of your group of friends, it's high time to find other friends to hang out with, especially if your friends don't stick up for you.

Step 2. Ignore taunts and teasing

If someone teases you because you have small breasts, try to ignore them. Bullies want you to respond and if you do, they will most likely continue to bully you. Stay calm and in control. Just ignore the insult or walk away from your bullies.

This also applies to online conversations and social media. You can delete their comments and block their usernames

Step 3. Stand up for yourself; If you've ignored the bullying and it won't stop, you need to stand up for yourself

For example, you can say, "Don't say that, that's mean!" or “I don't want you to talk to me anymore.” Walk away from this and be proud that you have spoken your mind. Sometimes bullies stop once you've stood up for yourself.

Try to remain calm and composed when confronting your bullies. If you're too emotional, they may keep bullying you to get the same response

Step 4. Be worthy

Do not descend to the level of the bullies by insulting them. Show you're mature by not doing the same to them. You can also say something like: “Too bad for you that you think that way, at least I know that your appearance is not everything. I have many talents that I am happy with.”

If the bullying continues, don't hesitate to speak to a teacher, principal or school counselor about it. They can intervene and stop the bullying
