Im almost 17, will my boobs ever grow?!

Hey everyone,
I'm 16 years old and i will be turning 17 in about 3 months. i'm still at a 32A in a bra. i feel like my breasts are never going to grow. im extremely insecure because of it. i haven't really noticed a change for atleast 2 yrs now, except for the fact that they have gotten a bit rounder but have not grown at all. I was just wondering if i will be a 32A for the rest of my life.

I also felt insecure about my breasts at 17… they filled in nicely around 20years old…
The best thing i learned was about bra size,,,
your breast size can look big, firm, & very sexy in the right bra…
so many women (girls) underestimate bras… the commonly dont even wear the right bra size.
It is absolutely investigating what bra is the most flattering for your body (its not always a padded push-up… even the way the straps are change the appearance.)
Try asking for assistance at a lingerie store… i bet you'll be surprised.
its probably more effective than the pill (which can also shrink your breasts)…

Hi Vee, Well yoiu have to choices, one you will be the late bloomer, and they will turn into a pair of 38dds or you stay as you are small and firm, but you will be able to run for the bus, you can go jogging without a bra on and not forgetting there are a lot of guys who just love the small breast, as they say more than a handful is a waste, and you wont have to worry about them falling out of a dress when you bend over, so many choice agaist the big 38dds.
Good Luck

At your age, I remember I couldn't wait to get nicely sculpted breasts. I was a 32AA until about the age of 20 where out of nowhere they decided to grow! I agree with NOHARD you are able to do a lot more without big breasts, because once you get them, they get in the way and are just a pain :P I would suggest, if financially possible, to invest in a Victoria's Secret Miraculous bra... It does wonders and adds two cup sizes and doesn't look so fakey! Be patient as your body is still developing! Good luck!

im a little confused about what size i actually am. in a non-padded bra im a 32A. but in a Victoria's Secret push-up bra, i fit in a 34B. although i did measure and i came out to be only an A cup.

did your boobs grow? I'm turning 17 in 3 months now and am also a 32A right now and I'm so worried they're not gonna grow. Mine have also recently rounded a little but they haven't really changed in size and I am terrified I'd be so happy if you could tell me what happened to yours since our cases are so similar. Thank you!!
Hey there.  I just wanted to tell you that you will be amazed when you look back at the way your breasts will change over the years.  Your weight, hormones child birth, etc. will all impact your breast size and cause them to change size and shape throughout your life.  

When did you start puberty?  When did you get your first period?  Are you thin? If it is recent, then perhaps you will still grow.  Otherwise, you will probably be a small breasted woman.  It's your natural body type.  You will get bigger when you gain weight, when you have a child, etc.  But as a woman, please know your breast size doesn't have to be big.  If you just want guys to notice you, you'll fight that battle your whole life if you are depending on your breast size to do that.  Enhance your other assets.  :>)  Including your mind and rate of achievement in life. Those are sexy traits many man find even more enticing than a large bust. If you just want to look different for your own sake, buy bras with pads in them. They push up and create cleavage. You can attempt chest exercises with weights to build the muscle that is over the breast to help pump it up a little.  But learning to be happy with yourself is really key to life.  :>)  good luck

you can have the workers at VS measure you for your perfect sized bra. I was the same way... Non-padded, I was 32AA, but padded push up I was 34B. The letters (AA, A, B, C, C, DD) are the cup size, while the numbers (32, 34, 36, etc) are the length around your torso.

I know you are worried about your size now but believe it or not so is the same girl your age with large breasts....i know I was her....i hit a c cup in 6th grade and a size dd by 10th and it was no picnic on my end.....just learn to accept your own body and the confidence will be noticed....all women are most critical of themselves....i hope you can learn early to live yourself first and no matter what if others dont they lose not you.....i know its cheesy and hard to follow but believe it or not those over developed girls you see are doing the same....fake it til u make it.......good luck

Hey sis. I know how you feel. I am 17 and I only just fill a 32A. and it pretty much sucks cause all my friends have bigger breasts than me. I mean, I don't want bigger boobs because I want to attract men but because I want to look good for myself. My boyfriend is okay with my small breasts but I want to go to at least a C cup, for myself. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for  both of us.

swizz500, you'll find your breasts will change size over the years.  They make great bras to help push us up.  Clothes should look great with these.  Gaining weight normally adds breast size but most women don't really want that.

Can’t help but wonder how things turned out for you since 2012
Did you get what you hoped for or did you learn to love and be confident anyway?
As a 17 year old who’s like a 30A I’m curious

Cantalope, a friend of mine had her breasts done when she was 28, and her boyfriend was shocked. As far as he was concerned, all breasts are created equal, and he thought her previous sleek look was very attractive. Please know that men react the most positively to someone who is confident and happy (and, interested in them). Only the dumbest insist on a particular body type (or hair length or color, for that matter).  Do what you think looks best for you, and don't get hung up on a body part. The boobs might come or might not, but if you're a happy and confident person, you'll do great!

And sorry, I just noticed that your user name is Canalope, and I spelled it wrong.
