Causes of Small Cup Size
Women begin developing breasts as they enter puberty. Women generally celebrate their first step of womanhood. However, some women do not get to experience this joy because they do not see an increase in their breast size. Small breasts can affect women in a negative way emotionally and can make women feel self-conscience about their bodies. However, women should not.
Women’s cup size is entirely dependent on genetics, location, and age. In the end, there is nothing a woman can really do to influence how large her breasts will be – at least naturally. Therefore, women should not worry about their cup size and focus on everything else in their lives.
With that said, if a problem is caught early enough, a girl can eventually see growth in cup size at least to average levels. Below are some causes of a smaller breast size:
Hormonal imbalances: Estrogen is the primary hormone in women that controls the development of her body during puberty. If estrogen levels are abnormal, a woman might not see normal breast growth. If this is the case, hormone therapy can be administered to at least help breasts grow to a normal size.
Poor fat content: Girls who are considered to be “skinny” or below an average weight tend to see less breast growth due to a low fat content. Breasts tissue is primarily composed of fat. If a girl does not have normal fat content during puberty, chances are she will not see normal breast growth.
Certain Medications: Teenagers and young adults taking various medications might see a lack of growth in the breast due to the side effects of these medications. Some medications interfere with estrogen production, which is the primary hormone responsible for the growth of a woman’s body. Sometimes, a simple switch in medication can allow for hormones to regain a balance and allow for development of the breasts.
Genetics: If all else fails, genetics could be the reason a woman does not see breast growth during puberty. Genetics play a role in the development of a woman’s sexual organs in the same way they influence the growth of a man’s body. Sometimes genetics just do not allow for much growth in the breasts.
The good news for women is that there are some things that can be done to increase the size of her breasts. A variety of treatments, supplements, and surgical procedures can influence breast growth and hopefully alleviate any concerns that her breasts are inadequate. However, women should know these treatments are not necessary and are only really completed due to the desire of a woman.
