9 things all flat-chested women can relate to

03 July 2015, 13:45Lynn Butler

Flat-chested women always seem to beat a disadvantage when trying to find the perfect outfit. Or, sometimes, it’s that you don’t really feel woman enough.

Here are ten things that all flat-chested women know only too well:

•    Clothes never fit you properly, unless they’re five sizes too small

Going shopping becomes a dreaded task especially when trying to find a nice item of clothing. You finally have your sights set on an amazing blouse and rush to the fitting room, only to find it’s loose and baggy - especially around the chest area. Let’s not even talk about the struggle of finding a nice bathing suit that doesn’t make you look strange.

•    Boob tubes and strapless dresses are impossible to wear

Wearing a boob tube or anything strapless is impossible to keep in place. You feel rather, uh, deflated when the material just slides down your body.

•    You're too embarrassed to go lingerie shopping

Trying to buy anything sexy and lacy becomes a chore. Not only do you seem out of your element, but you feel as if you are out of your territory. You’re constantly aware that people are looking at you in bemusement, as if they know what's happening under your shirt.

•    Getting mistaken for a child, because you haven’t ‘developed’

This especially happens when ordering drinks, they (and when I say they, I mean the barmen) will look at your chest and somehow it becomes their age meter, which not only leaves you puzzled, but insulted at the same time. Being treated as someone underage because you don't have big breasts, proves how perverted our world has become.

•    You’re jealous of your bustier friends

When you see your friends wear body-hugging outfits, and their boobs look fabulous and you wish that you could have just some of it. Not all. Just some. And don't get me started on when your friends say,”I wish I had smaller boobs. “No, you don't, Britney, no you don't.

•    Seeing a teenager with bigger breasts than you

This probably makes you extremely jealous - seeing a teen with way more volume. It’s at those moments when you call your mom and ask her if something went wrong when you were born...

•    Cupping your boobs together, wondering what an actual cleavage looks like

Yes, we've all done that. Just to know how it feels… even if it's for a few seconds. It's good to know that it is possible. Even if you have to force it.

•    Not being able to ‘stuff’ anything in, because there’s no support

Stashing away money or tissues is impossible as they always slip out. According to Urban Dictionary, the pencil test (and not the segregation one) is to determine whether women should wear a bra or not. Naturally, if the pencil falls you don't wear a bra, if not, you do. We’ll be lucky if a highlighter ever fitted snugly in-between our 'sweater stretchers'.

•    You’re instantly happy when you have another flat-chested friend

That moment when you meet someone flat-chested, you’re suddenly put at ease. Instantly making them your new friend and wanting to be in their company all the time. You get a happy feeling knowing that you're not alone in this world.
