Help - I am obsessed with my small breasts...

Not sure if this belongs on here, or on style and beauty.
Basically I guess I am just looking for some opinions/advice...
I am just really obssessed by the fact that my breasts are too small and keep thinking that if only I had cosmetic surgery to make them bigger I would feel so much happier about myself. I am quite petite and before having a baby I was a small 32B but was reasonbly happy with that - I would have preferred to be bigger, but it was never an issue for me. But post pregnancy I have gone down to 32A and I feel that no man could ever find me attractive because of the size of my breasts. I did think about having surgery, but I know that there are risks associated with it, and complications, etc. so that puts me off - I guess I am concerned that if I go ahead I might regret it. I made a decision a few weeks ago to just forget about the surgery and focus on my "good bits", but it just keeps bugging me. What do you think??

It is YOU a guy will be interested in if he is any kind of decent bloke, big breasts or nay.Do it for YOU if it makes you happier,not a man!!

Thanks Wrinkly !
I think that's the problem - that if I am really, really honest with myself it's probably not about wanting to do it for myself, but wanting guys to look at me and think "wow, she has really sexy breasts".

D'you know its really funny,I went through a stage in my twenties wishing I was better endowed in the norks department,and the other day I was talking to a mate who has fantabulously large norks who always says she wishes she had smaller norks cos hers cause her back pain...the grass is always greener huh?I would rather a guy would think "Wow shes a really sexy person" as an all round perspective not just in terms of norkage

Sexy breasts can be small and pert and lovelygrin
i waiver between a 34AA and 32B

I was once having tea with a 30-stone Irish priest who informed me "any more than a mouthful is plenty!" which regarding my tiny bosoms

I'm not sure what the moral of the story is, but I found his praise highly reassuring

He was de-frocked shortly after

I'm an A and I could not give a HOOT. I don't feel that people notice. I may be coasting along on a wave of denial!

Seriously......... I wouldn't feel tht a man who loved big boobs was 'my type'. I mean,that bloke that Melinda Messenger was married to, he's probably a boob man.

Lol at the priest commenting on how much boob is enough!!!!

LittleDorrit Thu 24-Jul-08 22:22:05

Morningpaper - you have made me giggle !

morningpaper Thu 24-Jul-08 22:25:06

He struck me as a man who knew quite a lot about mouthfuls

The main problem with small bosoms is making sure you haev more bosom than tummy

It's so annoying when your belly sticks out further than your chest

My boobs are small as well. I prefer them that way. YOu can wear tops without bras.

cheesesarnie Thu 24-Jul-08 22:28:30

i go from not caring about non boobs to it bothering me.
can i ask all other norkless people do you wear padded bra etc?i do so i feel i have 'something' and think it looks bit better but than i think why bother!

morningpaper Thu 24-Jul-08 22:28:58

I can't wear tops without bras

I need padding

and underwires

and mirrors

and possibly Derren Brown walking 10 feet in front of me

LongLiveGreenElizabeth Thu 24-Jul-08 22:29:39

Yes, MP, I have tiny boobs but huge incentive to keep stomach flat.

I think big boobs look matronly tbh. I'd rather be normal sized, but if I had to pick small or big, definitely small.

cheesesarnie Thu 24-Jul-08 22:31:17

someone told me if i stood on my head id have perfect figure .grin

I like to have a slightly padded bra, but not too much, so that I don't feel like I am being dishonest with everyone ! grin

cheesesarnie Thu 24-Jul-08 22:34:30

id feel silly going to be fitted for a bra with nothing there.

morningpaper Thu 24-Jul-08 22:35:34


the only trouble is that you have to have a lot of padding at both top and bottom, otherwise you end up with a shelf effect where your bra stops and nothing starts....

LittleDorrit Thu 24-Jul-08 22:36:38

Thank you ladies - you have made me feel much better ! I guess I just needed some moral support and confirmation that going under the knife might not be the answer.
I will start doing some pilates to tone all my other bits and, as Orinoco suggested, get some nice and well fitting bras.

lazaroulovesleggings Thu 24-Jul-08 22:37:46

I used to wear a padded bra and then one of the padded bits came out and the bloke I was talking to said 'What's that?'

Hannah81 Thu 24-Jul-08 22:41:04

My boobs are lopsided! I BF DS1 for 15mths but only on my left side, so that one is considerably bigger than the other, but so what - I fed my DS for 15mths! I'm now feeding my DS2 who is 11wks old.

For me, breasts are for feeding babies - big small, lopsided (mine), pert (many moons ago now), gravitationally influenced (mine)! They provide a very important service and even though they are mishapen now, I'd never do anything to them, I'm proud of them for what they've done for me. I wish others could feel like this, I am truly blessed.

I do hate that people oversexualise them - and maybe reducing this will help women feel happier about what they have.

My thoughts are with you, but try to love them for what they are - it's a lot cheaper and a lot less painful!

morningpaper Thu 24-Jul-08 22:42:05

I hve a big array of fabulous padded and wired miracle-bras

I would spend money on that first
