In a society enraptured by the Sydney Sweeneys and the Kardashians (Caitlyn Jenner included) of the world, an ample cleavage continues to reign supreme. Throughout history, larger breasts have been considered symbols of wealth and fertility. Many a Renaissance painting features unencumbered voluptuous women, leaving us wondering: what of the woman with a flat chest? Were they doomed to stay in the shadows?

As someone who couldn't fill in a bra in her teen years, I always felt shafted by my boobs. Attending an international school meant there were many girls more genetically gifted than me. While boys were snapping their bra straps, I had no strap to speak of – bralettes didn’t come with straps back then. It was also during this time they bestowed a nickname that would stick for years: “The blackboard.”I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.

Post-puberty, after I accepted that only a miracle (or silicone)would change my bra size, I was worried that no guy would find me attractive. There were a few outliers, but only after they’d tried their chances with more “gifted” girls. For years, I wished that I could fill out a bikini or the boob part of a boob tube. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve changed my tune. There are many reasons to celebrate having a flat chest, here are some of them:
