* Ana Radic, a Serbian comedian, is greatly overjoyed that men pester her more well endowed sister and has described her modestly endowed chest as a gift that allows people to focus on what she's saying. Considering most of her humor comes from being TheGirlNextDoor and a ShrinkingViolet, she has a very strong male fanbase in her home country despite not being as chesty as the Serbian media says a woman should be, and she is thrilled about it.

* Creator/KeiraKnightley. She's been described as "Sunken Chest and No Booty". Specific examples from her films follow.
** While her makeup in ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' was designed to create the illusion of cleavage, she is proud of her small chest. Captain Jack couldn't resist taking a shot, though:
-->'''Sparrow:''' So unless you've got a rudder and a lot of sails hidden in that bodice-- ''(scans her briefly)'' -- unlikely...
** In the commentary for the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl first]] ''Pirates'' movie, Keira gleefully comments on how impressive the costume/makeup artists made her cleavage look (fully accepting that she does not have boobs in real life.)
** Despite being flat as a board, posters for ''Film/KingArthur'' were doctored to make her look like a C-cup. Keira Knightley was unhappy with her posters being photoshopped to make her look bigger.
** In ''Domino'', a girl in her boarding school makes a snark about her adolescent boy physique, prompting a beatdown.
* An example that's very similar in nature to the "King Arthur" movie poster example cited above (very similar and arguably even more stupid), albeit unrelated to Keira Knightley, came with the IMAX release of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", the poster for which showing a [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v172/yummymuffins/harrypotterorder.jpg digitally enhanced version]] of [[EmmaWatson Emma Watson's]] still developing figure (she was sixteen at the time the movie was shot and while Ms Watson didn't turn out to be particularly well-endowed as an adult either, she still has developed notably since then).
* Charlotte Gainsbourg

** Can also cross over with AmazonianBeauty when you consider that increased physical fitness usually leads to lower body fat content, which in turn lends itself to having a smaller chest size -- so the PetitePride can derive from a woman knowing that she has kept herself in good shape.[[note]]Though, with genes and lifestyle as strong factors, a flat chest in certain contexts could be a sign of the Female Triad Syndrome, which in some case could mean bodily fragility.[[/note]]

* There are also men who prefer smaller breasts visually. There are cut-downs among men to guys who feel this way, like "If I wanted to date a 10-year-old boy, I would!" but that just raises weirder questions about the speaker, actually.

** Related to the above, certain sports and dances are just plain easier to do if you don't need a lot of support in the chest area. This is especially true for gymnastics and ballet: most classes and troupes flat-out [[GoingCommando don't allow you to wear underwear under your leotard]], so the majority of professionals are either very small or completely flat. And they ''make their living'' off of their physical strength and beauty.

** There are in fact women who feel quite beautiful with small breasts[[note]]not entirely flat chests[[/note]] (be it despite them, because of them, or the whole topic just being a total non-issue).

* Debra Messing. She was the butt of more than a few flat-chested jokes on ''WillAndGrace'', but has said that she doesn't subscribe to that standard of beauty, and is happy with what God gave her.

* Konata from ''Manga/LuckyStar'', though she will only talk about it if someone else broaches the topic (in the quote, Konata is referencing the flat-chested Mayumi from the dating-sim game, ''VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}''. Mayumi is proud of her "lack of endowment", but Rin and his friends like to make fun of her for it).
-->'''Konata:''' A flat chest is a status symbol! Extremely rare and valuable!\\
'''Tsukasa''': I guess I'm all right too.
* Umi Sonoda from ''Franchise/LoveLive'' actually voices her own opinion in ''Nico's School Idol Diary'' about bust size to similarly less endowed Nico and Rin that there is nothing wrong at all about being less developed.

* Konata from ''Manga/LuckyStar'', though she will only talk Monaco of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''. When Taiwan is troubled by how huge some of the European girls (Ukraine, Hungary, Belgium, Belarus) are, Monaco tells her not to worry about it if someone else broaches the topic (in the quote, Konata is referencing the flat-chested Mayumi such things.
* The eponymous ''Franchise/BlackRockShooter'' wears [[{{Stripperiffic}} a most noticeably showy outfit]], despite her very obvious lack of assets. It's a safe bet to say she doesn't suffer
from any body image issues. In the dating-sim game, ''VisualNovel/{{Shuffle}}''. Mayumi manga version, it gets subverted. Instead of being proud, it becomes somewhat of a BerserkButton.
* Chaika, one of the {{Catgirl}} aliens in ''LightNovel/CatPlanetCuties'',
is proud of her "lack of endowment", but Rin and his friends like to make fun of her for it).

very confident about bust size her figure; particularly in comparison to similarly less endowed Nico and Rin that there is nothing wrong at all about being less developed.fellow Catian [[ACupAngst Melvin.]]



* Minor character [[LovableSexManiac Chichigami]] from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' isn't much of an example herself; however, her reaction to one of the main characters being embarrassed of her flat chest is notable.
---> '''Chichigami:''' Large breasts may be fabulous, but tiny breasts, too, are wonderful!

* Nagi from ''Manga/{{Kannagi}}'' seems to carry this attitude, especially during the BeachEpisode... only to be trumped by the appearance of a new TokenMiniMoe.

* Big breasts vs small breasts has been a CyclicTrope through the centuries. At different periods, various styles of corsets and stays were designed to flatten the chest as much as support it.
** A famous historical example; UsefulNotes/MarieAntoinette was seen as having comically large breasts in Versailles for a slightly larger than average bust. Small breasts weren't so much in fashion as the only fashion for the french court.
* Ancient Romans dislike women having large breasts and would wear wraps under their garments to make them seem smaller.
** So did (and widely still do as evidenced by their media) the Japanese; overall they prefer a more cute, youthful and healthy look. Kimono and other such garments also generally work better with small breasts, so it's as much appeal as it is practical.
