The Definitive Pros and Cons of Having Small Boobs

Debate: are small boobs a gift or a curse?

PRO: You can get away with not wearing a bra. Sign me up for that backless dress!

CON: You still have to wear a bra most times because even though there's not much there, there's still enough going on to make being braless at work not socially acceptable.

PRO: You never have to try on shirts. If a shirt looks good on the hanger, it looks good on you. Shirt shopping is the best kind of shopping.

CON: Ugh, bikini shopping. First of all, you can only even buy bikinis sold as separates, because you're never the same size on the top and the bottom. If your top doesn't have enough padding, you look like a child. If your top has too much padding, you run the risk of what little boob you have falling out anyway.

PRO: You can wear super low-cut tops and dresses without worrying about anything falling out.

CON: You need to get a lot of dresses tailored because if they fit right on the bottom, they're usually too big on top. Separates are just generally your friend.

PRO: You don't feel like you need a bra when you're on top.

CON: Boob sex is a challenge if not downright impossible.

PRO: You can wear bras with no underwire. WAY more comfortable.

CON: You need an epic push-up bra to make any cleavage. Football players wear less padding. Also, push-up bras = not comfortable.

PRO: You can wear workout tops with built-in bras. For most exercise classes, they provide enough coverage. And they're super cute!

CON: Sports bras are the ultimate flattener. Remember that scene in Now & Then when young Roberta tapes down her boobs? Sports bras make you look like that, no tape required.

PRO: Exercising is comfortable. Boob-wise, at least. They never get in the way or feel painful bouncing around, because they don't bounce around.

CON: They stay small even when you gain weight. Bigger hips? Sure. Puffier face? Yup. Whenever you gain a few pounds, they show up literally anywhere but your boobs.

PRO: You don't have to worry about boob-related back pain or your bra straps digging into your shoulders.

CON: If you have puffy areolas, you always have to wear a bra with foam cups. Otherwise your puffy nips will show through your shirt. And that's just embarrassing.
