What a way to revive an old thread! Someone very nice left me a message mentioning that this thread had come back to life. Well, be that as it may, things have turned out for the better. 3 years ago I was disappointed with my lack of decolletage but that is no longer the case. After having my second child I went from an A cup to a C cup, naturally. Glad to say my husband has been quite happy as have I.

I've recently began modeling again and have added more genres to my port such as glamour, swim-wear, and lingerie. Thanks very much to all the supportive voices out there and all the constructive criticisms. Now we may let this thread die in peace. smile

Your portfolio says you don't do nudes, implied nudes, or "erotic" (which I presume would include lingerie), and you aren't even sure about swimwear.

Exactly how would breast implants be of any benefit to your portfolio?

And even if you change your mind about nude work later, breast implants are generally only beneficial for glamour nudes--art photographers tend to be more interested in natural forms, and fashion photographers tend to book smaller-chested models.

Small breasts are awesome and definitely underrated in our world, in general. But like the previous poster said, if you aren't doing nudes/implied/swimwear etc, then it's not a big deal one way or the other.

If you think having bigger breasts would help your self-esteem, then go for the surgery - just go one or one and a half-sizes larger - just enough to stay proportionate and still let you notice the difference.

If you don't care if your breasts are small (which I'm not so sure about considering this post) then stay how you are.

On a side note, I think you look fantastic. smile

No way- You are so beautiful, and look in proportion and natural. Go any bigger for your frame and it might just look horrible.

Besides, like the posters above said... You're not planning on doing any nude/glam.... so why do you need it.

PLUS- there are too many girls on here with huge boobs many of them fake doing glamour, and if u ever decide to do glamour might be nice to see a girl with a small chest, small chests are beautiful.

Small frames typically have small breasts, you're completely normal and gorgeous!  In my experience I have found that everyone wants what they don't have, I had a shoot once when the model complained of her small breasts and the make-up artist was complaining about her own big breasts.  They were both astounded that the other one wasn't happy about their body... I just smiled, everyone wants what they don't have!

None of my biz, but since you asked, you "should just be happy with your small chest."

Breast augmentation won't necessarily make you more successful as a model...especially if you eschew glamor and nudes.

edit: ah and yes you are gorgeous...are you just baiting us for compliments?

I am small-busted, primarily an art model and I sometimes get hired by glamour photographers.  So if you do decide to do some glamour down the road, you may not need a large bust to do it.  And of course, most art photographers generally don't care about your bust size as long as everything is proportionate and natural.

In your profile you say;
"For now I won't consider doing any implied nude, erotic, or adult shoots for the sake of my husband. Swim-wear might be considered."

That right there says you won't need them for any photo assignment. And even if you consider those types of images in the future, it is not necessary to have big breasts to be successful. Just a look that is seductive and attracive and *that* you already have!

Yes, unless you want to look like a porn star. Small Asian women with naturally large chests are not exactly commonplace.

I'm not sure. In order to properly advise you, I'm gonna have to see your breasts.  Photos could possibly provide enough information for me to make my evaluation.  However, if you don't have photos, that's another service I provide.

Once I have the photos, I'll do a complete study, and report back to you with my findings, an recommendations.

Padded push up bras can make you look bigger, fuller, firmer...and then you can take it off at the end of the day and have all the versatility of a smaller proportionate bust and a slightly larger, sexier bust in clothes.
You are more naturally/ethnically beautiful and versatile (in my own opinion and that of, not all, but many others) with no obvious cosmetic surgery. And I've said it before and I will again- a very thin, petite girl will NEVER pull off, even small implants that can fool a trained, or even fairly educated eye.
If you find your niche and confidence that will further your career  much more than implants, unless you are doing modeling that is based around bigger busted ideals like glamour nudes, lingerie, and some, not all swimsuit.
There will always be people who want someone taller, thinner, with a bigger bust, different features, etc...
There's no point in trying to please them all because you can't EVER please them ALL. It's impossible. If the scrutiny of other genre requirements are tearing down your self esteem you may not have the chops to model. You have to know your strengths and weaknesses and how to make the most of what you have.
We all have flaws but thats was make us unique and give the most recognizable beauties their fame and trademark.

Make yourself happy- if you KNOW that a different appearance and cup size of your breasts will accomplish that- do your research and go for it, but if that's not the only thing you're at all insecure about, I'd wait. Your views and career options may shift, or even change completely in the near future.

One of the main attractions of Oriental/Asian models is their slim, small-breasted look. Why go and spoil that with a set of plastic-fantastics? You're a beautiful girl, but you have no intention of showing your breasts anyway. It's a bit of a non-topic really!

i think you should get HHH implants that are electrically activated so you could have lil whirly gigs on each nipple and make you stand out from all the other models at cattle calls....  and you could use the propellers to save on gas too tongue  hehehheheh

Ohhh, come on now, don't be silly. I know it sounds corny, but you really are just fine as you are.
You're tiny, you're Asian, I'm sure fake boobs would just look unnatural on you.
Unless you wanted to do glamour or swimwear, I don't see why in the world you'd need bigger breasts.

I echo what everyone has said. Adding to that, I find that shooting petite girls with small breasts a bit more relaxing than having a buxom babe, which almost always got my heart racing. But really, you're beautiful the way you are.

Be proud of those musquito bites smile. In all seriousness, you are covered from head to toe in most of your photos. Are you looking to do more glamour? The way I see it is that you have to emphasize the small breast the you have. Believe it or not, there is as big a market for small boobs as there is for big ones. Be confident with what you have, it will come across in your pics. Good pics with big or small boobs is a good pic. Good luck!

What a very wierd thing to ask.

With your current restrictions in modeling are you asking for the sake of future modeling or is it a more personal attribute that you feel that you would be deemed more beautiful and feminine with a fuller breast?

To be quite honest as long as the woman is proportional to her body type and figure then your breasts are not really a problem. Yes, fuller breasts are desirable when it comes to fashion/glamour as it give more shape and makes the material hang well. Coming from a woman with small breasts I know the endeavors of trying to deal with making something look fitted and attractive when you have a woman's figure and a very tiny cleavage as off the rack clothes usually fall off your shoulders and looks baggy up top whilst it hugs the lower half. Learn your body and dress appropriately for it. Well fitting bras and padding helps considerable if you are wearing figure hugging clothes and will give you an added cup size and desirable lift and positioning to make it look like you have cleavage. Also a little trick sweety, you can give shading and the illusion of a fuller cleavage with contouring your decolitage with makeup.

If you are comfortable with yourself then that is all that matters. After all, anything more than a handful is wasted tongue

WHY?  Who told you that, really....

Big boobs are overrated IMHO.  If you got the genes and got that cleavage, flaunt it, but if you don't, be proud of that too.  At 5'0" and 95lbs I seriously would think that big fake boobs would look a bit ridiculous on you.  Not intended to be a criticism, but rather a complement that you should stay the way you are.

The Industry Forums are for serious industry related discussions only. I'm sorry, but we do not need 20 threads on boobs in Model Matters. This is not an industry specific discussion and belongs in OT. I am moving it there now.
