Why are girls so insecure about their boobs?

My girlfriend flipped sh*t on me for trying to take her bra off, I asked her why and she said they were too small. She's a 32C or something and her boobs are like the perfect size. Why does it seem like all girls are insecure about their boobs?

  • I dunno, maybe it's because whenever guys see a pair of DD's their eyes pop out of their head and whenever there's a hot celebrity with small boobs guys go, "She's hot even though she has small boobs." Any guy who wants to know why girls get insecure about their breast size (or any other physical aspect about themselves) just needs to look in the mirror, look at your friends, and look at 99% of guys and you'll find the problem. I'm a 32A and I hate having small boobs, I feel like I have to stay thin to be attractive because I definitely don't want to be fat with small boobs. I don't fill out my clothes the way I'd like to, whenever I go out I feel like I have to wear a padded push-up bra just so I don't look like I'm 12, and I definitely worry about hooking up with a guy and then having him be disappointed with my boobs. You're girlfriend on the other hand has no reason to really be insecure, C's and D's are like perfect.

  • Well you have models/porn actresses to thank for most of that. Not all girls are insecure about their boobs but a good amount are. Make her feel good about herself. Compliment her body and then compliment her breasts. Make her feel wanted and loved. Maybe even buy her a new fancy bra/lingerie set to help build confidence in her breast area.

    • Everytime I compliment a girls breasts they look like they wanna slap me. :-O

    • How do you do it? And do you compliment the girl while in the bedroom? If you compliment a girl in public/not the right time then chances are you'll get that reaction.

  • It might be that your girl compares herself to other girls that have the "perfect size". Some girls also see that immature guys notice girls with bigger breasts. Let her know that she is beautiful and that her size is perfect. Make her feel special.

  • As much as I adore my boobs, I'm still pretty insecure about them-- we're all insecure about things. But that doesn't stop me from showing them off >>

    point being, we all have insecurities and deal with them in different ways.

  • She is probably wearing a super pushup bra some bras make your chest look huge when it's actually small. If it's a miraculous bombshell bra from Victoria secret it makes them look two sizes bigger. She is probably really a size A or B. I know cuz I'm a woman and lots of women use those bras to look way bigger. The bra is 80% just padding. let her know you don't care if she has small boobs say that's your favorite kind and give her a wink. she will probably feel more comfortable letting you see them

  • Well, as a girl with somewhat big breasts (34D), from my experience and the guys I know and my observations, guys who like big breasts are extremely vocal about it and I guess that makes girls with small boobs feel bad.

    It's so weird how girls with small boobs seem to think NO guy is entitled to liking big breasts or preferring them and girls with big boobs are SO shocked to find out *some* guys prefer small breasts and are even turned off by big breasts(just like some guys are turned off by small breasts).

    How many times do you hear guys say "Look at her small t*ts!" yeah, not alot. Just like you don't hear many dudes ranting about flat or small asses

    Anyways, people should quit using boob size as a crutch.

  • she said she's only a C because her ribcage is small which is true :p but I really don't understand her...

    isnt the letter about the cup size-not the ribs. I thought the number was for the rib cager. also if her rib cage is small& she's a 34 c-that means her boobs are bigger than if she had a large rib cage-so I am not getting the point that's supposed to make.

    anyways that's crazy. youve been with her you know she's not gigantic. & c is a perfectly good size.

    • I'm a 32C and his girlfriend is probably right because my boobs look like a 34B, I just have a smaller ribcage and the bands don't fit as well :3

    • if you have a smaller rib cage then your breasts will look bigger by comparison to your body mass- than if your rib cage was bigger.

      just like the same breasts on a tall person look smaller than on a shorter person. & he didn't say she had a problem with the bra-he said she had a problem with taking the bra off.if that's what you meant by bands. otherwise I don't know what bands are.

  • we usually get made fun of it by girls all the time so we think you might not like them

    • Those girls should keep their stupid mouths shut because, while we don't mind small boobs, we don't have much use for b*tches that put other girls down...(:

  • We are insecure over our boobs because guys expect us to have huge boobs like celebrities but we don't.

    • WOW! Lots of us would love your boobs...not sure if I have ever heard that from a female tho..O:O

    • Haha well I'm only 100lbs roughly, so I'm proportionate. I would look stupid with large breasts, not to mention that I find them unattractive.

  • comparing with other girls makes them feel this way because girls with big boobs(d/dd) get more attention from males so girls with smaller than that boobs feel inferior and lack confidence in this area(not all but ya know alot)

    guys themselves set this up so its' kind of a hell of your own making LOL

    guys gawk/comment on big boobs ALL the time (especially in middle school/high school but hell it's all over TV you can't pretend it's not constantly in your face that big ones are better ones) it makes the girls with big boobs feel like they're hot sh*t because of it and thus makes the girls with smaller ones feel lacking.

  • I seriously have no boobs and I hate it, I fell like any dress or top I'm wearing that I can't feel it out so...

    But, I wouldn't say I was insecure about them I just really hate having small boobs.

    I guess I didn't get a lot of estrogen, even though I look pretty feminine.

    • Levels of estrogen don't determine boob size, genetics does.

    • My mom has large c's to d's and my sis is almost to a c my grandma has c's and the people on my dads size of the family has like c's to d's.

  • Because they're small and we think you guys aren't going to like/enjoy them. It is what it is.

  • Men and the media make us girls feel pressured to have huge boobs otherwise we're not as desirable as we could be. that's why all thse women out there go get plastic surgery having someone cut open their bodies! eww! I used to be insecure about my small breasts, but growing up, they're just right for my body :) they're not too small...they smush together when I move sometimes. healthy boobs are the best :)

  • Not all girls are insecure about their boobs, just like not all guys are insecure about their junk. It has to deal with confidence more than anything.

    I'm a 34A and I like my boobs and body in general, and so do the guys I'm with. It's a win win.

    • Really? they look bigger than that lol. must be the angle. @_@

    • They're mostly a 34A. I just bought a new bra at VS. Sometimes they're a 34B depending on the brand of the bra...

  • Ugh...I'd like to know the same thing! That's ridiculous to me. All girls should love her eyes, boobs, and vaginas because they are unique.

  • Well, personally, I'm insecure because in middle school everyone made fun of my size. I'm a 34B though. I don't see who would make fun of a C, that's pretty big.

    • People get made fun of for having big boobs too.

    • Show All
    • When I was in middle school, girls who were flat/small, like me, were "almost a boy" while the girls with the bigger breasts were labelled sluts... even if they were complete virgins

    • why? were they labeled sluts I mean?
