A-Cup Breasts Rule!

by Mary Fischer on November 16, 2012 at 2:46 PM

Keira KnightleyNews flash -- Keira Knightley knows she has small breasts, and she honestly doesn't care. In fact, she's pretty happy about not having a very ample bosom, and it gets on her nerves when photos make her chest appear bigger than it actually is. (No, it really does piss her off.)

I know, I know -- most small-chested gals try all sorts of ridiculous poses in photos to make their boobs look bigger. (But not Keira.)

In reference to how sometimes magazines feel the need to enhance her assets a bit, Keira told Us Weekly:

Well, sometimes they make them a lot bigger than they actually are. I'm happy with them with the size they are. I'm all right with it unless they make them really droopy. Then, I kind of think, 'Okay, if you're going to invent that I have big t-ts, any way they could at least be perky ones?' It seems a little unfair to go from nothing to a big droop.

Ok, so it's a little bit strange that she referred to her own girls as "t-ts," because most women think that term is somewhat offensive, but regardless of what she calls them, Keira definitely has the right attitude about things.

As an A-cup gal myself, I couldn't agree with her more about being perfectly content with having small boobs. Believe it or not, there are actually a lot of perks to lacking any sort of oomph in that area -- it's easy to shop for clothes, for one thing, and as a mom who has been through pregnancy and breastfeeding, I don't have to worry about things sagging as much as I would if I were more well endowed. (Don't get me wrong, I still sag -- it's just not as noticeable.)

And I don't care what Keira says -- she's never appeared "droopy" in that area when I've seen photos of her. But then again, maybe her idea of droop and mine are two totally different things. (Just wait 'til you have a baby, honey.)

Are you small-chested, and does it bother you at all?

    Does not bother me until I start bra shopping. There is not nearly the selection for the A team as there is for the full figured girls. Many of the A cup size bras are so heavily padded as the manufacturer assumes we want/need to appear larger than we are!

    I am and at times it does bother me because a lot of cloths don't seem to be made for small chested ladies. Maybe if I was at least a full A I'd be more content. Hers look like a full A.

    I agree with above posts. I don't mind my small breasts but I can never find a bra that fits right. And clothes all show my bra half the time bc there made for people with bigger breasts. It's frustrating, it been made hard to walk around with a smaller chest when the world is set up for big breasted women!!

    No, they don't "rule".

    As someone who is far from an A cup I wish I was smaller. Big boobs, besides sagging, really take a toll on the back and shoulders. I don't understand why girls with small chests want implants. It's also really hard to find bras that don't look like grandma bras.

    I think bra shopping is hard if you are small and large. It is hard for me to find 34DDDs in the store. There are certainly many times when I wish I had a smaller chest. So many times I try on clothes and things just don't fit. And button up shirts are the worst. I dread the future drooping that will happen.

    There are pros and cons to both big and small chests.

    I'm a 34A with a petite but not willowy body (think Hayden Panetierre with a bit more squish). I'm super fortunate that I almost always find my size, but I wish that there were more with figures like mine portrayed media. If you're not Keira Knightly or Sophia Vergara, the cheerleader from Heroes is pretty much it.

    I'm a 32B and I love it. I definetly prefer being smaller chested. I was an A up until recently, and I've been a C before too. It's pretty easy for me to find B's but they're always 34 or 36's. And Pinstrips I think She got a boob job recently, but I agree there should be more normal small chested women in Hollywood.
