Men in general...you all here want to sound accepting but almost anywhere else generally puts a great deal of focus on breast size and/or cleavage.
You don't ever see photos or discussions or comments about women that are 'flat chested" like you do about DOlly Parton.
Are there any news or advertising type photos not concentrated on cleavage?
It's more like an "even though she doesn't have......"
And you wonder why?

Well, let's face it, the whole purpose of advertising and the female body image portrayed there is to portray something that almost never exists in reality, so every woman who sees it will feel bad about herself and - here's the real point of it all - spend a bunch of money trying to fit that image.


So, for example, you have skinny tall women with large breasts. Sorry, doesn't occur in nature. If the rest of the body is tall and skinny, the breasts will be small.


You have voluptuous women with small hips. Sorry, doesn't occur in nature. If the breasts are big, so will the hips be.


You have elderly men portrayed with women half their age as if they were naturally peers. So middle aged and older women believe they have to look like they're 25 in order to be attractive. Sorry, a woman of 60 does not look like she did at 25, and when she tries it just looks weird.


You have middle aged women with no - zero, zip, zilch - fat on their bellies. Sorry, doesn't occur in nature.


Don't forget that "styles in women's bodies" change with the times. Remember Twiggy? Remember Clara Bow? Remember Marilyn Monroe? Remember the Venus of Willendorf?


As always when something doesn't make sense, FOLLOW THE MONEY. Think how much money is spent by women with perfectly good bodies and faces trying to look like the one in a million supermodels whose airbrushed images are plastered everywhere. Why would the corporate interests making all that money ever want women to think that if their bodies and faces are healthy, they are OK?

Perhaps it's something women worry more about than men? From what I understand some women get implants for some sort of a confidence boost or something.

It's like with any plastic surgery -- get a good doc who does natural work which suits your particular body. Sharon Stone got small implants just a few years ago. Age happens.

Think of men who get hair transplants that look like doll hair vs others who spend the money for natural transplants where they do one hair at a time. Or men who wear cheap toupees that look like road kill vs. a very expensive natural wig. A friend's ex husband had two toupees. He'd send one back to the original wigmaker who would add more gray hairs every year or give him a different style.

The Dick Van Dyke show did
an episode about this that was very funny.

To me, size does not matter. If I like the woman's personality and shes classy and carries herself well. I've never found myself wishing a woman's chest were larger. Each woman is unique in her own way. "Sexy" is in the eye of the beholder.

Nope! I didn't start getting suggestions that maybe they aren't real until after the 90s when it became more popular to have augmentation. Everybody believed they were real before then. and no I'm not obese I don't have hips maybe that'll attract the men who are pedophiles I guess I don't know until they see the upper half... I have quite a few friends who haven't had any work done and they aren't big hipped or fat either. Not a freak of nature I can buy a bra in any department store...so guess you're wrong there.

ETA: Big or small, I don't believe anybody likes being objectified.

Sounds painful. Hope things go well with the next surgery.

You sound a tad jaded.

I've hung out with men for 48 years and rarely rarely breast size comes up and when it does most guys don't care if they are Dolly Parton sized or insert some newer celebrity.

I have no dawg in the fight to lie about this. I speak my mind here and sometimes that offends so again in my experience most guys seem to be fine with average sized, whatever that may be. I'm assuming that's probably a B or C cup. Not every guy is drooling over the huge DD's and larger women.

Well then maybe women need to start standing up for themselves more often. Parents have to teach their kids to have self respect. Maybe women need to stop going for the dumbasses too.

Anyway, back to the OP:

OP, please do not mutilate your young healthy body just to confirm to a societal norm that: (a) changes with every generation; and (b) is only created in order to sell stuff.

Google 'Small breasted models'.

As has been said already, not all men favour large breasts, some even favour small breasts.

A girl I dated had small breasts - I mean small. You know, I liked them.
