'''Basic Trope''': A female character is unhappy because she has a small chest.
* '''Straight''': Alice is extremely unhappy because she has an A-cup chest.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Alice goes to extreme lengths to hide her small chest, including wearing extremely baggy clothes to make it appear like she's hiding a large chest.
** Alice is DrivenToSuicide because she has a ''concave'' chest.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice, while not happy about her small chest, doesn't make too much of a deal out of it, mostly just making self-deprecating jokes about how she could pass for a boy or something.
* '''Justified''':
** People think Alice is immature because of her small chest, or she can't land a date because she's often [[TheRival compared]] to the [[GagBoobs contrasting]] [[TomboyishName Bobbi]].
** Alice lives in a society were [[BuxomIsBetter women with small breasts are seen as inferior to be women with big breasts]] and gets teased/harassed badly because it.
** Alice is [[TokenMiniMoe still]] [[JailBait young]], [[SheIsAllGrownUp by the time she grows...]]
* '''Inverted''':
** [[PetitePride Alice considers her nearly flat chest her most attractive feature.]]
** Alice is [[DCupDistress incredibly displeased with her D-cup chest]].
* '''Subverted''':
** Alice doesn't seem to mind having a small chest.
** It's shown that Bobbi has back troubles because of her [[GagBoobs overly large chest.]]
* '''Double Subverted''': Alice doesn't care that GagBoobs cause back troubles; she still envies Bobbi.
* '''Parodied''':
** Alice has a C-cup chest but all her friends have E-cups or greater, so she still complains at regular intervals about her lack of chest size.
** Alice has an H-cup chest but ''still'' thinks she's too small.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Some days she feels inadequate. Other days, she doesn't mind at all. And once in a while, she is extremely happy that she doesn't have the same back troubles as Bobbi.
* '''Averted''': [[PetitePride Alice never has any issues regarding her bust size]], or she is average sized or well-endowed.
* '''Enforced''':
** Alice is the star of a new series aimed at younger girls, so she's given a smaller chest to appear younger to help her relate with the target audience.
** Alice is the star of a comic in a women's beauty magazine. Alice's experimenting with supposed methods for a bigger chest serves as a medium for the author's advice to women regarding that subject.
* '''Lampshaded''': Alice looks down her shirt, and says to her breasts, "Where are [[ICallHimMisterHappy you guys]]?"
* '''Invoked''': The very busty [[AlphaBitch Bobbi]] routinely flaunts herself around Alice to stir up feelings of inadequacy in Alice.
* '''Exploited''': [[GenreSavvy Bobbi]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold of the Invoked example]], notices Alice's preexisting angst, and flaunts herself to bruise Alice's self-esteem further, knowing that she would ask [[DoggedNiceGuy Charlie]] for a date as a measure to reinforce said bruised self-esteem. Bobbi does this because she knows Alice and Charlie would make a [[DoubleEntendre nice pair]].
* '''Defied''':
** [[CoolBigSis Bobbi]] realizes she's going to meet the flat chested Alice, and having some jealousy inducing assets, chooses to incorporate a sweater into her everyday wardrobe to help smooth over their acquaintance.
** Bobbi tells Alice that Alice is actually a B-cup, not an A, and her breasts are actually only slightly below average - and that many women are actually, because of public perceptions, wearing a bra a [[RealityIsUnrealistic size too small]].
* '''Discussed''': Two characters are discussing, "It's sort of funny how ladies tend to get so flustered over something as insubstantial as their cup size."
* '''Conversed''': Two characters are discussing a [[ShowWithinAShow work they like]], "Well, at the very least, I guess we should be happy they included a female character who doesn't look like she should have back problems."
* '''Implied''': If you look carefully you can see a character with a flat chest sometimes staring at buxom girls or looking down at her breasts when well endowed girls are around.
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Alice is eventually DrivenToSuicide because she's so unhappy with her lack of assets, and partially prompted by [[AlphaBitch Bobbi]] who frequently bullies her about it.
** Alternatively, every single relationship she tries to get into fails because she can't look past the fact that she has a small bust. Guys that would ordinarily be interested in her are turned off by her extreme angst.
** Alice has a serious neurosis that manifests itself as her physical insecurities. [[TakeOurWordForIt Something terrible ensues]].
* '''Reconstructed''':
** Alice then gets implants or moves to a place where she is statistically normal or well-endowed by comparison.
** Alice seeks professional treatment, and learns to react to her small cup size much more moderately.
** Alice decides that [[PlayedForLaughs she'd rather have flat boobs than constant back pains.]]
* '''Played For Laughs''': Alice is flustered at being surrounded by other women's huge and often [[GagBoobs awkward busts]]. HilarityEnsues, Alice faking a big chest would be a source of comedy, with {{Gainaxing}} and the occasional SkinshipGrope for good measure.
* '''Played For Drama''': Alice is flustered at being surrounded by other women's huge and often awkward busts. RealityEnsues. The Deconstruction line provides some pretty sterling examples of this.
* '''Untwisted''': Alice doesn't mind it publicly. But in private, she angsts over her lack of a bust.
