A surge in websites and Facebook groups like: Small Bust, Big Heart; Of Lambs and Lace and Small Boobs Rock just goes to show how the world is embracing our mantra of ‘love your body whatever shape you are’. Women are learning to be proud of their flatties rather than sloping around hunch-backed or wanting to smother them under pounds of padding. Celebrities like Keira Knightley and Cameron Diaz (and Trinny!) are proud to bare their svelte chests both on-screen and on the red carpet. Sienna Miller said in an interview “Men’s traditional view of sexiness isn’t sexy. It shouldn’t be so obvious: push-up bras and miniskirts? Sexiness, to me, is when people are comfortable with themselves.” We applaud you Sienna!
One of the have sexiest women of all time, Kate Moss, recalled in an interview with The Telegraph about how much she hated her small boobs as a teenager and would do anything not to take her top off. Now she bares them with pride – and they seem like the chicest accessory a woman could ask for.
Are tiny tits terrific? Let us count the ways:
- They are less affected by gravity and hence stay pert for longer.
- You can work out without the hassle of having to purchase that hugely expensive support bra.
- You will never experience backache from having to lug around two huge boulders.
- You can get away with almost any style of bikini without the worry of ‘popping out’.
- In winter you can snuggle into big chunky jumpers that look beastly on your larger-breasted sisters and in summer you can slink about in the sheerest t-shirts and bandana tops.
- Huge florals and animal prints will seem utterly chic on your svelte torso.
- You can wear fabulous ruffles and bows on your upper half without appearing blowsy.
Large department stores like as John Lewis, House of Fraser and M&S always carry a wide range of sizes but there are also many lingerie shops that specialise in A to AAA-cups. We had a chat to Fiona Goad of Little Women, an online shop that supplies ‘sexy, chic lingerie for grown-up women who are proud of what they have and not worried about looking bigger’. She has seen every possible scenario and has suggestions galore:
- If you have one boob that is bigger than the other then buy a bra with removable booster pads, take the booster out of the pocket on your larger side and put it in the pocket on your smaller side.
- When you discover that your boobs are heading off in different directions, look for a push up bra with a wider bridge, the push will do just that and give you a more comfortable fit.
- Small droopy boobs need a traditional triangular shape, a halter neck or a padded bra with booster pads at the bottom of each cup.
As we always say, dressing well begins with great foundations. So find yourself the prefect bra and show the world your beautiful small boobs.
