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... [[BuffySpeak un-bustiness]].

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

* In one rare instance in ''Anime/SailorMoon R'', Emeraude taunts the Senshi during their first encounter, going so far as to make fun of their breasts. Usagi's the only one who really reacts, raising her arms up to cover her chest (the girls aren't flat, even despite being 14, but compared to Emeraude and some of the other usually-buxom villainesses, there's reason to worry).


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/AmericanBeauty'', Jane is seen suffering this due to her crippling self-esteem problems. She's shown in the start of the movie looking up breast surgery websites and she's been saving up her babysitting money for said surgery.

* In ''LightNovel/DakaraBokuWaHGaDekinai'', Lisara gets pissed that boys only seem to care about bust size, as she has the smallest chest of the main cast. In one scene, Ryousuke meets her mother and [[StrongFamilyResemblance briefly mistakes her for Lisara]], until he looks at her huge chest and says it couldn't possibly be her, causing Lisara to smack him. [[spoiler:Ironically, Ilia, who often makes fun of Lisara's chest, is revealed to wear [[FakeBoobs padding]] and is really even smaller than Lisara. Her own A-Cup Angst was what made her pad her chest.]]
