* Kyoko from ''Manga/{{Eiken}}'' is the "other" lolicon character in the series who looks much younger than her 15 years, and so has no breasts or curves to speak of. In a club, let alone a world, were a D-cup is considered small, and most of her clubmates have bigger boobs than their heads, she pines for a voluptous body every time she "thinks" she's alone. It is implied, however, that she isn't short so much as a very, very, very late bloomer and she will eventually grow up to look like her mom (who compared to the other girls is still quite small).

* Lilith Aensland, "sister" of the huge-breasted succubus Morrigan in the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} / Vampire'' video games is a strange inversion. Although she tends to act "as if" she didn't notice the size difference, it's the rather busty Morrigan that makes a big deal of it every time Lilith gets the attention Morrigan is craving, while Lilith is not bothered by her flatness: likely because she likes to play the {{Lolicon}} fetish. See Morrigan's ending in ''Super Gem Fighter Mini-Mix'' for an especially clear-cut example.

* ''Fanfic/{{Xenophilia}} features another variant of this trope with, again, Dash. When she and [[InterspeciesRomance her human lover]] are discussing her previous bad luck with males, she mentions a stallion who used her for a one-night stand and then left saying he wanted a mare with "more jiggle in her rump". Pettanko mares have flat rumps but the result is the same, with all the angst and feeling ugly that would imply.

* [[Literature/KrisLongknife Kris Longknife]] frequently became depressed early in the series that she had nothing in the way of cleavage, especially as she seems to keep running into attractive women with greater endowments. She generally gets over it later, but still notices more endowed women with some envy.

On the flipside, it means her NinjaMaid Abby can provide her with exploding falsies without making her look top-heavy. {{Inverted}} by her better-endowed frenemy Victoria Peterwald, who tells Kris she got off lucky: outside of their use in DistractedByTheSexy, which Vicky is a master of, her assets are actually a hindrance to her military career since they give her back problems and just get in the way while running.

* This angst is very common. TheOtherWiki says that, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States. More than 300,000 ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breast_implant you read that right]]) were performed, only in 2007, only in the USA. Some of the pictures on the webpage are {{NSFW}}, some are pure {{Squick}}.

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, and many people don't know that cup size is [[http://www.brasizecalculator.tk/images/bandbustguide.jpg always relative to band size]], i.e. 38C is about the same volume as 30F[[/note]], for AddedAlliterativeAppeal, the interesting thing is that a lady doesn't have to be "flat" or even remarkably small-chested suffer from this anxiety. It's a state of mind that depends on what beauty ideal or peer group the character is comparing herself to, so even a girl or woman who fills a C-cup may feel inadequate in the presence of another who's an E-cup. Messages from the media, lack of self-esteem, or even just happening to associate with women who are bustier than average (sometimes the result of being the token average person in a WorldOfBuxom) can give a female character a distorted image of what counts as "small".

In many cultures, large breasts are considered [[BuxomIsBetter more attractive and 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]].

In many cultures, large breasts are considered [[BuxomIsBetter more attractive and desirable than small ones]]. Many works set their story in a cultural context where the opinion "BuxomIsBetter" predominates. This particular standard of female beauty can be a challenge for women who are more economically modestly 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...

* [[BerserkButton Being offended]] when other people comment on the smallness of her breasts.
* Jealously looking at another girl's huge breasts in a BeachEpisode or at any other opportunity.
