We've always been told to love and celebrate the bodies we're in, after all it comes in different shapes and sizes. But doing so is not always as easy as it sounds, especially when you have people around you making a joke of it in your face. Case in point: the 12 things women with small boobs are tired of hearing.
1. "Ang swerte ko sa'yo, may dalawang likod akong masasandalan."
Either that or people refer to you as a surfboard.
2. "You can be a model since you're flat-chested."
Right. Because a flat-chest is all you need to break the modeling industry.
3. "It'll grow bigger someday."
And by someday, they mean when you get pregnant.
4. "What do you need a bra for, anyway?"
This is usually followed by "Use Band-Aid instead. It's cheaper."
5. *when you get hit in the chest and you complain* "Ay, may natamaan ba?"
Yes, physically and emotionally. Flat-chested girls have feelings, too, you know?
6. "You look like a little girl."
"I thought you were a boy" is a close second!
7. "Pantal lang yata 'yan eh!"
This joke is so old, it's surprising you haven't gotten dengue with all the insect bite/kagat ng lamok remarks thrown your way.
8. *friends complaining about having big boobs* "'Di ka maka-relate no?"
No, because if I had boobs as big as yours, 'di na ako choosy 'no!
9. "'Wag ka mag-strapless, walang kakapitan."
Not if I've seen and mastered all those "How to Stuff Your Bra" videos online!
10. "His man boobs are bigger than yours."
Such is life.
11. "'Wag mo akong talikuran."

12. "Real women have curves."
It's 2017 for crying out loud!
