32A Breast Size
32A boobs are on the very small side of average. Having said that, a 32A size is not considered small only because of the “A” cup size, it is also because the band measurement is smaller than average. Although a 32A size may seem small, it is actually noticeably larger than a 28 B! Although most people think cup sizes remain consistent across different band sizes, cup sizes are actually sized in proportion to a woman’s back measurement. To put it simply, cup sizes get larger as the band size increases in size. For example, a 32A bra cup is nearly identical in size to the cup of a 34AA, a 30B or a 28C bra. In this comparison, the 32A bra fits a woman who has a smaller bone structure than the woman who wears a 34AA, but a larger bone structure compared to the frame of women who wear the A cup in smaller band sizes.
32A boobs look small on all frames, but they do not look out of proportion on a woman who is very slim. For example, if a narrow hipped woman with low body fat had 32A breasts, her breasts would look in proportion to her frame even though her breasts would still be objectively small in terms of actual volume. On the other hand, a woman who is a «pear shape,” meaning she carries most of her weight in her bottom half, with 32A boobs would look extremely small-busted from front since her hips are much wider than her chest. If this same pear-shaped woman carried extremely minimal body fat in her stomach, her 32A breasts would look more noticeable from the side. If a woman is shaped like an «apple» (defined as carrying her body fat primarily in her stomach), 32A boobs would appear to be virtually non-existent since her breasts wouldn’t protrude further than her stomach.
32A natural breasts tend to be perky since they are not heavy enough to cause significant sagging. Since 32A natural breasts are on the small side, many women with this size may consider having a breast augmentation in order to increase their size. You will find further discussion about increasing a 32A bra size with breast implants in the next section.
It is a common misconception that larger breasts are associated with a higher risk of breast cancer and that smaller breasts are less likely to be at risk. According to research published by Cornell University, “most studies have found no association between breast size and breast cancer risk.”* It is encouraged to get regular exams regardless of your breast size and even if it seems counterintuitive, you are not at a reduced risk if you have 32A breasts simply because you have less breast tissue than other sizes.
Although there is nothing wrong with having a small 32A breast size, many women with this size consider getting implants to increase their bust. Surgeons tend to recommend that a woman pursue implants that are only one or two cup sizes larger than her original size if she wants to achieve a natural look. According to a survey conducted in 2012, most women tend to take this advice because the most commonly requested increase in size was two cup sizes.* Considering this, women with natural 32A breasts would appear to have a relatively natural looking bust if they opted to have a breast augmentation that brought them up to a 32B or 32C. A woman with a 32A bust, however, would be more likely to look obviously surgically enhanced if she were to request implants that would bring her up to a 32D bra size. It is more difficult to achieve a natural looking large augmentation from a small size like 32A because the woman would be unlikely to have enough skin and body fat on her chest to allow the implants to sit comfortably and look natural. If you want breast implants, you should get them in a size that makes you happy, but you should also keep in mind that surgeons will ultimately know best when it comes to the safest size to get and the size that will look most flattering on you.
Regardless of a woman’s body type, if she wears a push up bra with a tight top her breasts will appear more noticeable than if she worse a large baggy t-shirt and no bra at all. In general, the thinner a woman is around her stomach, the larger her breasts will appear proportionally because fabric lays across the body part that protrudes the most. Having said that, 32A breasts will not appear large no matter how thin the woman is. Padded push-up bras are popular with women who wear extremely small sizes like a 32A because padded push up bras create the illusion of bust volume.
A 32A bra will be larger than that of smaller cup sizes with the same band size, but not in a dramatically noticeable way. Boobs that require a 32A cup size are most likely the size of a small bump and a 32AA would be an extremely small bump.
Every woman’s breast appearance is unique, but sometimes it is reassuring to see how other women’s breasts look when they share the same size. Especially when it comes to smaller sizes, women often assume that it is more attractive to have a large bust, but there are a lot of gorgeous women who have compact boob sizes!
