How can you be self confident with A cup breasts?

Well look at this way, as long as you are an A cup, there will not be enough to sag and get droopy when you get older. Also, if you are an A cup you probably have a thin body frame which is also attractive to guys. If you are lean and only have an A cup your breasts are in proportion with the rest of your body. An A cup is nothing to be ashamed of but I understand. If you ever start taking birth control, it will usually cause your breasts to grow a little bit, so you have that to look forward to if you ever use birth control. (But I suggest having more of a reason than wanting bigger breasts if you choose to get on birth control). Learn good posture and it will make your breasts appear to be larger than if you hunch your back over. Stand with your shoulders back and your chin up. A confident girl with smaller breasts is a lot more attractive to guys than an unconfident girl with small or big breasts!

No, birth control does not make a womans breasts grow. There is a myth that hormonal birth control such as the combination pill can cause breast growth - what actually happens is that the synthetic hormones can cause the breasts to swell: this is temporary, no more than a woman could see at certain points in her menstrual cycle naturally, and often accompanied with breast pain. Often women start hormonal birth control in their teens or early twenties when most breast development occurs, and they wrongly attribute growth to the pill.

I think they can cause breast tenderness, especially if you are on the pill.
