A female character's reaction to possessing large breasts tend to fall into five basic archetypes, each one being usually associated with certain character types and StockPhrases (or variations thereof):

'''Embarrassment - ''"[[LuminescentBlush Please don't stare]]."''''': Gets very flustered by being the focus of attention -- most particularly if it's from her [[CannotSpitItOut secret crush]].
* Common character types: ShrinkingViolet, YamatoNadeshiko, ReluctantFanserviceGirl.

'''Resentment - ''"I wish I never had them."''''': A somewhat frequent evolution of embarrasment. Thinks she's BlessedWithSuck, even when others [[CursedWithAwesome disagree]]. Occasionally, however, the woman in question is less embarrassed by the attention than [[RealityEnsues simply annoyed by the physical inconvenience of being well-endowed]].
* Common character types: ShrinkingViolet, BrokenBird, ReluctantFanserviceGirl, and the more [[CombatPragmatist Pragmatic]] ActionGirl.

'''Indifference - ''"So I'm bigger than average. [[{{Pun}} Big]] deal."''''': Not only does she not exploit it, she may even have no real care for having such "assets" but is usually neutral about this issue. They are not necessarily against the idea of looking sexy with their outfits, but don't plan on relying on their sex appeal; however, while they might not try to exploit their "[[UnusualEuphemism talents]]", [[MaleGaze the Artists/Animators/Camera View will almost certainly do it for them]].
* Common character types: IceQueen (and its {{sub trope}}s), {{Ojou}}.

'''Pride - ''"If you've got it, [[MsFanservice flaunt]] it."''''': Prone to parading their "assets" in the presence of male company, sometimes with a little [[{{Gainaxing}} extra bounce in their step]], and may often brag about them, unknowingly in front of less fortunate, usually younger and [[ACupAngst self-conscious]] female characters. Likely to view their "development" as [[IHaveBoobsYouMustObey a way to get what they want]], they are proud of their physical attractivenesss. Also unlikely to [[MyEyesAreUpHere openly tease distracted young men for staring too long]], as it makes them feel hot. Quite common with perverted males who [[GenderBender get turned into busty women]], or when the [[ACupAngst highly insecure]] flat-chested girl gets a BreastExpansion.
* Common character types: EthicalSlut / GoodBadGirl, FemmeFatale / TheVamp, LovableSexManiac, {{Ojou}}, TheTease, ShamelessFanserviceGirl, ProudBeauty.

'''Ignorance - ''"Why do men keep [[DistractedByTheSexy running into lamp posts while looking at me?]]"''''': This is a girl who is so innocent/oblivious/naive that she genuinely [[CaptainOblivious can't make the connection between the increase of male accident rates in her presence and where their eyes are straying to]].
* Common character types: InnocentFanserviceGirl.

For self-image with smaller assets, compare ACupAngst and its opposite, PetitePride.

Since MostWritersAreMale and BuxomIsBetter, there are a lot of female characters with... uh... prominent chests. This trope is about the common ways these women are depicted reacting to their situation.

This trope can also apply to the girl who's the first to grow breasts. It's not too different, since often in fiction this will overlap with her having the largest assets when she's a teen/adult (and vice versa), but this isn't entirely TruthInTelevision.

* Mina from ''Manga/{{Airmaster}}''.
* ''Eiken'''s Chiharu Shinonome; the girl can't [[SkinshipGrope catch]] [[ClothingDamage a break]].

* [[ShrinkingViolet Mirei Shizuoka]] from ''{{Umisho}}''. Oddly enough, she's a CovertPervert as well.
* Yukari from ''Manga/AiKora'' starts out as this, but her friendship with Maeda leads her to become more accepting of her body.
* While Signum from ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' is TheStoic LadyOfWar most of the time, putting attention on her breasts, such as [[ACupAngst the insult from her subordinate Vita]] or [[LovableSexManiac the compliment from her master Hayate]] in ''A's Sound Stage 1'', is a quick and easy way to make her flustered.
* Anri Sonohara from ''{{Durarara}}'' is not quite comfortable with the fact that most boys identify her by her breast size.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Isane hates the idea of flaunting her body and has to be [[BeachEpisode ordered]] by her captain to wear a [[http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/3497/kotetsu.jpg skimpy swimsuit]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Mabinogi}}'': Nao Mariota Pryderi is arguably the most well-endowed character in the game, and the only one subject to JigglePhysics. She gets quite flustered when the subject is brought up; unlike Rua, below.
* Fumi in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'' remarks in response to comments about her chest that she doesn't appreciate the staring.

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]
* In an Cartoon Network bumper that (naturally) crosses-over the Justice League and the Powerpuff Girls, as the Bad Guys are being taken away, Wonder Woman tries to cheer up the Girls by saying that soon they will soon develop into strong heroines; when this happens, Bubbles says "Someday we'll be as developed as you!". All the characters start to giggle at the double entendre as Wonder Woman slowly slides her hands up to cover her upper body.

* [[GeniusDitz Orihime]] [[TheChick Inoue]] from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' mostly falls under this.
* ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'': Kosaka Shigure: Not only doesn't seem to care about her rather large chest, but [[http://www.mangareader.net/337-23611-3/historys-strongest-disciple-kenichi/chapter-105.html she doesn't even consider them to be big]].
* Hadzuki from ''KoeDeOshigoto!'' never realized [[MyEyesAreUpHere boys weren't looking at her face]] until she was explicitly told so.
* Sheila from ''Manga/HekikaiNoAiON'' has very big breasts and doesn't understand why Tatsuya is looking away [[ItMakesSenseInContext while she's bare chested]].

[[AC:{{Comics}}]]
* PowerGirl has fallen into this category on occasion, mostly for the purposes of comic relief. Most of the time, she falls into one of the other categories.
* WonderWoman, similarly, has on occasion not registered that her physique is, er, outstanding.

[[AC:{{Literature}}]]
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'''s Sacharissa Cripslock veers between this and indifference.

[[AC:Movies]]
* Melody from ''JosieandthePussycats''. Not so much in the movie, where the car crash happened because of the sign that said "Honk if you love pussy[[spoiler:cats]]," rather than due to her figure.
* In ''LiarLiar'', Jim Carrey's character gets a beating when he informs a woman the reason people treat her so nicely is because of her large breasts, something she apparently never considered.

[[AC:Web Comics]]
* [[MeaningfulName Didi]] from ''MenageA3'' is extremely well-endowed, but doesn't seem to notice her effect on people.
* In ''MoonCrest24'', Dory's breasts are quite large. The only recognition they've gotten so far is Derek thinking they're too big and Dwayne getting a graceful nosebleed and having an urge to "suck them dry". Dory however, seems to ignore the effect her breasts have on people.

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]

* An episode of ''{{Duckman}}'' has Duckman and Cornfed keeping watch over a pair of twins who have enormous breasts twice as big as their heads, they are completely ignorant as to why men are always staring at them.

When each of the family members gets an ImagineSpot for what they'd wish for with [[strike: Kobayashi]] Puni Puni Poemi's magical powers, Shii's spot shows a flat-chested version of herself.
* ''KeroroGunsou'': Natsumi Hinata is reminded more often that she'd like that (usually by the SchoolgirlLesbians stalking her) she's more well-endowed than average, and seems to think they're more a burden than a blessing. One of her fears is that she'll "end up [[GagBoobs a mutant like mom]]" and the effects of Kururu's age-changing beam in volume three indicate that this is indeed destined to be her [[http://www.otakuworks.com/view/56799/keroro-gunsou/vol-03-chp-24/read/7 terrible fate.]]

When they broke up and Ageha came on the scene, she tried her best to use her sex appeal to win him back first, leading to angst when she was harassed (and saved) ''again''.
* Maria Ortega from ''AoiHouse'' is embarrassed by her large chest, so much that she ran off crying when Alex talked to Sandy about her... not realizing that he's within earshot of her.

This is made worse by the fact that if they have truly huge breasts (we're talking GagBoobs territory), loose clothing makes them look fat, and tight clothing makes them look slutty. And then there's the difficulty of finding bras that actually fit. Or the purely physical problems of weight and bulk; a lot of large-breasted women have back problems.
** And imagine having MostCommonSuperPower at 14, an age when any girl is insecure, but those girls suffer from being leered at all the time by perverts. Breasts don't mean she's an adult, or wants anything.
*** Don't forget how many of these early bloomers are harrassed, bullied, slut-shamed and/or beaten up by other girls their age just because of their breast size.

** Real-life A-cup angst and breast augmentation surgery is so prevalent that many people are actually surprised, incredulous and/or dismissive when some women actually have breast ''reduction'' surgery. In many cases the surgery is done for purely practical reasons, rather than it being because of insecurity or self-image problems.
* Soleil Moon Frye (''PunkyBrewster'') had hers reduced. Frye stated in a People Magazine interview that if she stood up straight, other girls looked at her like she must be a prostitute. ''At fourteen.''
** They nicknamed her '[[KidsAreCruel Punky Boobster]]'. Luckily, she has a sense of humor about it and did a ''RobotChicken'' sketch about it a few years ago.

[[AC:Anime and Manga]]
* [[GeniusDitz Orihime]] [[TheChick Inoue]] from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' mostly falls under this.
* ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'': Kosaka Shigure: Not only doesn't seem to care about her rather large chest, but [[http://www.mangareader.net/337-23611-3/historys-strongest-disciple-kenichi/chapter-105.html she doesn't even consider them to be big]].
* Hadzuki from ''KoeDeOshigoto!'' never realized [[MyEyesAreUpHere boys weren't looking at her face]] until she was explicitly told so.
* Sheila from ''Manga/HekikaiNoAiON'' has very big breasts and doesn't understand why Tatsuya is looking away [[ItMakesSenseInContext while she's bare chested]].

[[AC:{{Comics}}]]
* PowerGirl has fallen into this category on occasion, mostly for the purposes of comic relief. Most of the time, she falls into one of the other categories.
* WonderWoman, similarly, has on occasion not registered that her physique is, er, outstanding.

[[AC:{{Literature}}]]
* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'''s Sacharissa Cripslock veers between this and indifference.

[[AC:Movies]]
* Melody from ''JosieandthePussycats''. Not so much in the movie, where the car crash happened because of the sign that said "Honk if you love pussy[[spoiler:cats]]," rather than due to her figure.
* In ''LiarLiar'', Jim Carrey's character gets a beating when he informs a woman the reason people treat her so nicely is because of her large breasts, something she apparently never considered.
