(Small) Boob size? - October 23rd 2016, 10:39 PM

I'm 14 (I'll be 15 early next year) and I wear an A cup bra (or a small B). Most of my friends (even those who are younger than me) have bigger breasts than me and I'm pretty self-conscious about it.
I'm not sure if this is related, but I sort of hit puberty late. I think I started getting acne when I was 10 or 11 and started getting hair on my body a little before then, but I didn't need a bra at all until I was 12. I just got my period for the first time in February (after I turned 14) so I'm hoping that maybe I just am not that far into puberty and my breasts will grow more soon? Is this something anyone else has experienced?
Also, my mom has fairly large breasts. She wears a high size C. Do girls usually end up with the same size boobs as their moms?

Thank you!

Hey there and welcome It's perfectly normal for girls to hit puberty, get their periods etc. at different ages. A quick Google search tells me that your breasts will grow for up to 2 years after you get your period, so they could easily get bigger. Size is determined by hormones, genetics, and weight. Having children tends to make them larger, so you might not end up with the same size as your mom, but your genetics will play a part in how big they grow.

This isn't something I have personal experience with, but it's okay to be self-conscious. I can guarantee you aren't the only one who isn't comfortable with your body. I'd say most people have something about their body they're uncomfortable with.

My breasts grew much past age 14, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Genetics play a role, but it wouldn't just be your mother's size. Your genetics on your father's side also contribute, so if people m on your father's side of the family tend to have larger breasts, then you might too. However, I do want to remind you that people also vary a lot and it's okay to not have large breasts. First, there's benefits to not. Your back won't hurt, and they don't sag as much longterm. And second, don't worry about future partner preferences. People like breasts of all sizes, and if that's your concern, I can promise you that a partner worth dating wouldn't ever care.

Your breasts can keep growing, but alas, family genetics don't always indicate much - my mom is an A and I'm a DD, so look at that for extremes.

You might just have small boobs and there is nothing wrong with that. They might get bigger - boobs can grow as late as 18-20 years old - but once you're through puberty, it's unlikely they'll double in size or something, so you're probably better of embracing what you have now instead of hoping for bigger bigger bigger because you'll be happy trying to find security with what you've got.

Hi Alexa,

You're still at a very young age. Your body is still changing and your breasts will go larger in size. Don't feel down if your breasts don't grow large though. I have large breasts and I have so many health issues because of it.

I have a really bad back and I'm almost always in pain because of them. I also have pains in my shoulders and neck. There are "folds" under the breasts that cause a lot more sweat then usual, and sometimes the sweat can smell bad. Some people experience rashes or other skin problems around the breasts. They also stretch your skin a lot so if you end up losing weight, which sometimes ends in losing a bit of size in your breasts, you'll having some extra skin left there.

I have considered getting a breast reduction that is covered by my OHIP since it's causing medical issues, but I haven't fully decided yet. My mom doesn't have overly large breasts. She is also a C cup. I am a DD so mine are a lot larger then hers.

I hope this helps a bit!
Brittany

When I comes to boob size most people won't care. A lot of outfits and styles of fashion need a smaller boob size to look good. This is coming from someone with dd cups so I know how frustrating it is to look at a lot of grunge fashion and be annoyed because they all have smaller boobs. There is nothing wrong with a cups, you just need to learn to rock it! You might get bigger, but personally you should be grateful that you don't get all the disadvantages of larger boobs. I'm sure you are beautiful no matter what size you are
