My Small Breasts and I uncovers the complex, poignant, and sometimes amusing relationship women have with their tiny breasts. Talking candidly, three women reveal how they really feel about their own bodies and the lengths to which they'll go to change their situation. Sharon Tan is 28, and one of the three small-chested women featured on this film, seems the most well-adjusted.

Sometimes a woman's breasts don't develop much during puberty but she remains "flat-chested" — without any or much palpable breast tissue. Typically, flat-chested girls do have a nipple that looks swollen or elevated, but for some reason the breasts don't grow in size at all. Flat-chested girls do get pubic hair and start menstruating just normally AND their breasts do have milk glands — it's just that the breasts don't grow in size like most girls. Unfortunately experts like doctors and lactation consultants don't really know WHY this takes place. It has been suggested that maybe flat-chested women's breast tissue is insensitive to normal levels of circulating hormones. But no matter what the cause, it won't hurt to eat healthy so as to give your body the best chance to have everything working properly. During pregnancy the breasts do usually develop more and grow in size, and flat-chested women CAN breastfeed and produce milk. A totally flat woman's breasts can grow to a A or even B cup during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
What about swimsuits or bikinis?
Girls come in all different shapes and sizes, and we're all beautiful, but sometimes being flat-chested seriously ain't easy. In a world where big boobs get so much attention don't deny it , for those with barely any boobs to speak of, the struggle is real sometimes. Here are the struggles all small-chested girls can relate to. You grow up believing that one day your boobs are going to grow, and after years and years of waiting in front of the mirror, you come to the horrible realization that it's just never going to happen.
I have read some of the comment here and would like to share my experience. I felt like I was 'on call' for when he would be available to see me. It's like talking to a wall. I must admit that this life comes with a lot of surprises. And how little some men understand the value of a well-dusted baseboard. Like many single members of the church, I have often wondered whether I would be willing to marry someone outside of the temple, and over the past few years I have come to believe that I would be willing to do so. They will teach the girls that sex is bad and wrong, which is something they will have trouble putting behind them when they eventually do get married. As a parent, we hope our children will make life choices that will give them the greatest chance of happiness.
