Contrast PetitePride. For assets on the other side of the spectrum, compare and contrast BigBreastPride and DCupDistress. For the {{Spear Counterpart}}s of sorts, see MuscleAngst and TeenyWeenie. UsefulNotes/AnimeFanspeak refers to this type of character as a "''UsefulNotes/{{Pettanko}}''" (roughly, "flat girl").

In many cultures, large breasts are considered [[BuxomIsBetter more desirable than small ones]]. This standard of beauty can be a challenge for women who are more economically endowed, and while some wear the "ironing board" title [[PetitePride with pride]], others are plagued by problems of low self-esteem as a result of their... [[BuffySpeak un-bustiness]].

* Kitten Braden, the heroine of ''Film/BreakfastOnPluto'', although she prefers to call herself a "svelte gamine", as she indignantly informs the peep show customer who complains about her lack of endowment. Although in Kitten's case, this is only to be expected, since she's [[{{Transgender}} biologically male]] and not on any sort of hormone therapy.

** This is PlayedForDrama in ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry''. [[spoiler:WordOfGod has stated that the very well-endowed Shannon actually has FakeBoobs. In the manga it's revealed that Sayo Yasuda, Shannon's true identity, never actually grew breasts at all, which is heavily implied to be because s/he is actually a biologically male child who was RaisedAsTheOppositeGender due to his/her sexual organs being badly damaged. Since [[ChivalrousPervert Battler]] has often expressed his belief that BuxomIsBetter, and both Shannon and Beatrice are both well-endowed, it's clear that Sayo is very insecure about this.]]

We hardly need to tell you that in many cultures, [[BuxomIsBetter large busts are usually more popular with men than small ones]]. Alas, not all women are so blessed, [[PetitePride and while some wear the "ironing board" title with pride]], others are plagued by problems of low self-esteem as a result of their... [[BuffySpeak un-bustiness]].

This can be for a variety of reasons, but the most common are the belief that BuxomIsBetter, being mistaken for a kid, and being thought of as childish and immature because of her small chest.

This could also apply to any woman that is under a D-cup (B-cup Bitchiness, C-cup Cynicism).

This could also apply to any woman While the trope is named after one of the smallest standard bra cup sizes[[note]]The actual meaning of these letters varies by manufacturer and country[[/note]], for AddedAlliterativeAppeal, the funny thing is that is under a D-cup (B-cup Bitchiness, lady needn't be as small as an A-cup to suffer from this anxiety. It mostly depends on who they're comparing themselves to, so even a girl who fills a C-cup Cynicism).
may feel inadequate if they're competing for attention with an E-cup.

Added DiffLines:

* Kanae of ''Anime/{{Classicaloid}}'' shows hints of this in one episode, but [[PetitePride gets praised for it]] by a bustier friend in regards to swimming. She does get it lampshaded, however, by Motes (who was at that point in time trying to win her affection) who makes a birthday cake for her...and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny it looks like a pair of big boobs]].

* Kobayashi from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'', although it's incredibly subtle. She gets upset when Tooru says her size is D (for dragon), and the last panel of chapter 30 is her giving an annoyed look at Iruru's sizable breasts.

* The main character in ''Film/TheToDoList'' often laments her lack of large breasts. At one point, she tries to get her crush's attention by swimming in a pool while wearing a bikini. The top falls off, but she does not realize it at first, so the entire pool gets an eyefull. Her crush turns away in embarrassment and her JerkAss boss starts making fun of her, and the kids in the pool steal her top and join in the mockery. After that, she has no recourse yet but to just walk away from the situation, completely topless while shouting at children and horrified mothers in impotent rage.
