Conditions with symptom: 'man boobs'
My boobs are small,but people think they're big,and my boobs are like different,one boob bigger than the other and its very noticable. My nipples like take up most of my boobs and look really horrible. I want bigger boobs as my body shape doesn't look right with no boobs. I'm too scared to talk to anyone. Is there something wrong with me?
I am 15, nearly 16, and one of my boobs is ALOT larger than the other. I wear a 30F bra. One of my boobs is an F and the other is a D. Is this normal?? All of my friends have pretty much even boobs? I am quite confused because the odd boobs doesn't fun in my family, neither do big boobs, most of my family are a C or less! Does anyone know of what I can do?? I am 5"6 and a size 12
im 15 years old and have double a ( aa )boobs and it's getting me really down because people pick on me because there my boobs are small and they call me Becky no boobs and boobless Becky.... Everyone in my school is a c cup and bigger then mine. Worst thing is I have a huge bum !! Which makes my boobs look smaller... I no your boobs stop growing at the age of 18 but how can I make then grow faster or look bigger??? Also my boobs are feel tender now and then does this mean there growing??
look when i was 15 i had size d cup and there not all what there cracked up to be and yeh they usually go tender when there growing and dont listen to them girls they will get the wrong sort of attention it dos'nt matter of the size honestly there are modles and celeb with small boobs and they're all ok x
I thought I'd let you know, at your age I had very small boobs too, and I have a HUGE bum! I was always self concious in school, I had the smallest boobs of all my friends. But you'd be surprised how much it doesn't matter as you get older! I'm 21 now, and I've been with my boyfriend since I was 16. He always tells me he thinks my body is perfect & always boast to his friends about how much he loves my bum, when they're all busy talking about boobs! He just doesn't care! We always joke that he's not a 'boob-boy' and that he's a 'bum-boy' haha! Don't let silly people get you down, so what if you have aa boobs, be proud of them, and show off your best asset, your bum! You'd be surprised how many people will respect you so much more for not having enormous boobs out for all to see and attracting the wrong attention... But nobody will say anything to you for wearing a nice pair of jeans to show off your bum, they'll just look and think 'Wow!' Trust Me! Be proud of yourself, your boobs will grow in time, mine are still growing a bit at a time now, but my boyfriend hasn't even noticed, he's too busy starting at my big bum!! Hope this helps :) xx
Heya, im 13 years of age and i am a size 32f boobs. What im writing on here isnt realy a question but a statment. Everyone has differnt boobs sizes, expecially at the teen-age where were going through puberty. While im an F cup, i have friends who are an AAA cup, AA cup, A cup, B cup, C cup, D cup, DD cup, you name a size and im sure i can relate to someone with it, all in the same year as me. I even know girls in my year who dont haven't developed enough to fit in a bra yet, but that is totaly nomal for our age and there is nothing wrong with it. I love my big boobs, i love small boobs, i love medium boobs, i love round boobs and i love saggy boobs. I belive that no matter how annoyed we can get over our body parts, our breasts are not one. There is always an option for anything, but i have never even thought of getting rid of my boobs as i love them to bits, even if they cost a fortune to go bra shopping. I hope this helped guys and remeber were all beautiful in our own way :) xxx
Hi im 15 and my boobs seem rly small and it makes me uncomfertable when people talk about boobs its really nocked my confidence down and i want some advise to help my boobs develope because i feel like all other girls look better im only 7and half stone and want my boyfriend to stay with me for as long as poserble and i think he exspects me to have nice boobs... I need help
Oh darling, nothing can help boobs develop except time. I used to have tiny boobs when I was 15 and was about your weight. You have a lot of growing to do yet, so try not to worry. Bodies change shape at diffent rates so in a few years you may end up being the most top heavy of them all ;) but the most important thing to remember is beauty is not linked to the size of your boobs. My sister is one of the most glamorous women you will ever meet and she barely has a hint of boob, being a 30A, tiny til 19 and not getting her period til 16. If your boyfriend truly likes you he will not mind what your boobs look like, you shouldn't feel 'expected' to be or have anything, you are yourself. If you are worried, tell your boyfriend of yours worries, he will be feeling similar worries over his assets even if he doesn't tell you. Being able to talk honestly and openly makes a strong relationship and will mean it lasts longer. If he does not accept what you think and feel then the relationship will never move forward. Be strong, my love, it's tough being a teenager but believe in yourself. The more you develop confidence in yourself and your friendships/relationships with other people, the less you will worry about aesthetic things like boobs, and maybe one day grow to love them. I definitely love my body now (I'm 22), it's far from perfect but it's mine and I respect it now. Good luck, don't feel pressured by others and stand up for yourself. This is your life, no one else's.
I can relate to this because I hated my boobs and their size. I'm a 32A, I am 17. I also used to think that my small breasts would be an issue for my boyfriend but they aren't because he loves my body. And i'm pretty sure that your boyfriend may ogle at big breasts but that does not mean that he wont like yours. You'll learn that your'e still developing and your breasts may still get bigger, however, even if they don't they are perfect for your body shape because they are the right proportions. Bigger isn't always better. I have friends with larger fuller breasts and I was always jealous of them but I learned to appreciate my body the way that it is, so I stopped being depressed during conversations about breasts. Lol, for a while I was willing to try my cultural methods of growing boobs but I think its safe to say that brushing your chest with a broom or a young males underwear is senseless and so are the rest of the other methods. Last words: learn to love yourself and your body, trust in the connection between you and your boyfriend. I hope I've been helpful. I wish someone said this to me a few years ago, it would have saved me some stress.
I've just turned 15 and my boobs haven't really grown since I had started my period which was when I was 11. I'm a 32A and I'm starting to feel more self conscious as I'm getting older and I have a boyfriend who is 16. I get other people making fun of me for having small boobs at this age while most of my friends have size B-D boobs. Will my boobs grow soon? Or will they stay this size forever?
Hi im 27 have three young children and my boobs are horrible they are 34f but dont look it at all. i lay down and they dissappear and my bra sits there with no boobs in they are not 1 bit firm and if i lay on my side and my boobs fall out of my bra and same with bending over i cant wear a bikini because i know they will fall out i am so self confident because of them i want 34e-f firm boobs not saggy ones. Any1 else the same x
I am in the same situation; Am over 60 years old have just found love after series of rejection, I am really cautious about moving to the next level with my newly found love, as I suspect my saggy boobs and stomach due to hernia will put him off. I have had past and current medical issues I.e. Suffered depression due to work related stress, had early retirement as my depression was caused by work related stress, I c recovered and stopped taking medication. when I was on the medication I gaine a lot of weight which I have struggled to get rid of in vain. I'm currently taking medication for hypertension, Arthritis and Asthma. I have informed my new love aboe medical circumstance and he has expressed no anxiety, feels he is all for movingly on with our relationship. Says he would like to be there for me and my a children who are adults and we are very close. I really need advice and practical help.
I have size 30GG boobs. There is a lot of empty skin at the top of my boobs, where the quick growth was (I used to be overweight, but have now slimmed down). My boobs shrank very little when I lost weight (I was size 34F). I am looking at breast reduction because they're so painful and big, is there any way that excess skin can be removed from the top of the boobs to make them perkier and lighter?
