Why Do Some Women Have Smaller Breasts?

Why do some women have smaller breasts and others a larger bustline? Many women experience a lesser degree of breast development during puberty as a result of genetics.  During puberty, fat cells accumulate in the breasts due to the release of estrogen hormones. When there is more testosterone in the body, fewer fat cells will gather in the breasts.

Women with fewer fat cells in their bodies do not have as many to work with. Thus, thinner women often tend to have breasts that are smaller.

If you are uncomfortable with smaller breasts, consider the breast augmentation procedure. With the help of breast implants, many women can achieve bigger bustlines and a boost in self-confidence.
