Go To



A girl who sees her lack of assets as a plus. Flat chests are usually associated with the young, and a girl with Petite Pride will play this up as much as she can, usually to [[DeliberatelyCuteChild make herself]] [[TheFakeCutie seem]] [[{{Moe}} cute and innocent]]. They also avoid many symptoms of DCupDistress and have an advantage in playing sports where big breasts might get in the way. SweetPollyOlivers tend to find flat chests useful as well.

* 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.

* Mary Russell, the title character of the ''Literature/MaryRussell'' series. She is not saddened by her boyish figure, and even said that her shape was popular in the current '20s. It also makes it easier for her to pass for a boy when she wants to.

* Music/PattyLoveless (a 30B) often [[CleavageWindow shows her cleavage]] in her music videos and on her album covers. She also wears a see through blouse in the video for "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVmlbjJORmk That's the Kind of Mood I'm In]]".

* Maria Bamford occasionally draws attention to her (lack of) assets in the chesty department. For example, she notes with more than a little sarcasm that men can't get enough of "these 32 AA's", describes them as "perfect, rare, delicate miniatures". More generally, as part of a larger bit on body issues she noted that she somehow managed to master being thin, but then they start laying the expectations.

* 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 the GirlNextDoor 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.

* Rita in ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' comments that she's glad she has a flat chest, because boobs the size of [[GagBoobs Judith's]] would bounce around too much and make it difficult for her to concentrate.

* 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. For 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.

* The bulk of supermodels through TheSixties and TheNineties. The perceived attractiveness of this is apparently a CyclicTrope. Like Twiggy, Milla Jovovich (until her pregnancy), or Kate Moss. Twiggy was one of the only supermodels of her period to have a boyish figure. Prior to her modelling career (and indeed afterwards, when the 'Perfect Size 6' occurred in the 70s and 80s), models were normally voluptuous. A boyish, flat-chested physique didn't become truly in vogue until the 'heroin chic' look of the 90's.

** Plenty of bra and lingerie manufacturers only produce "pretty" designs in a limited selection of sizes, about from A through D or DD (band size not taken into account). Manufacturers who produce sizes larger than D or DD tend to focus on support and comfort rather than aesthetics, so the fun things like lacy frills and ribbon details get throw out the window in favor of reinforcing underwire and wider straps. This trend only gets amplified by shops that sell underwear, so while someone shopping for a nice 34B bra at Target or Victoria's Secret can probably find something that suits their tastes, another customer trying to buy something similarly cute in a size like 40DDD is going to find slim pickings. There are specialty shops that cater to those with larger busts who want to enjoy cute undergarments, but they can be prohibitively expensive if one needs to purchase an entire wardrobe for their figure. It's 10 times easier to find cute brassieres when one has a smaller bust.

* A [[GrandTheftMe body-stealing example]] occurs in ''Manga/FairyTail'' when [[spoiler:Irene Belserion]], [[BoobsOfSteel who originally had one hell of a rack to go along with her strength]], takes over [[TokenMiniMoe Wendy's]] body and takes a moment to state that her small chest is rather cute, which is rather hilarious given [[ACupAngst Wendy's own issues on the subject]]. [[spoiler:Then again, Irene was just happy to have a ''human'' body again no matter how it looked.]]


* Ancient Romans dislike women having large breasts and would wear wraps under their garments to make them seem smaller.
* Frequent among Japanese women, as evidenced by their portrayal in media. 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.

* In ''Film/WeirdScience'', the two protagonists consider designing the program to make the girl's breasts huge; but then Gary says, "Hold it, Wyatt, I know female stats. Anything bigger than a handful and you're looking at a sprained tongue." So they reduce them to average size. (Zigzagged in a way because while Lisa'a bust doesn't turn out to be ''huge'', she isn't exactly petite either.)
