Whilst Keira Knightly manages to ‘work it’, a flat chest isn’t for everyone but Morrissey got it right – ‘Some girls ARE bigger than others’ and understandably this can get some women down. Flat chests are caused by a notable lack of breast tissue. It’s not really a health issue and women should be fine to breast feed despite it. There is no “cause” as such in fact there’s an obvious comparison with men who worry over the size of their genitalia. A flat chest is completely normal and fairly common. However, for all the talking cures in the world (sorry Sigmund) for some women only breast enlargement surgery will ease their anxiety – but remember, going under the knife should really be a last resort. Try forgetting the negatives and think about the fact that you’ll never have to deal with the much feared sagging that comes with old age and you’ll never experience the agonising back ache that goes hand in hand with a large chest. Furthermore padded bras and make up can work wonders in creating the illusion of larger breasts without the need to go under the knife.
