- Double Subverted: She doesn't mind it publicly. But in private, she angsts over her lack of a bust.
- Parodied: Alice has a C-cup chest but all her friends have E-cups or greater, so she still complains at regular intervals about her lack of chest size.
- Alice is eventually Driven to Suicide because she's so unhappy with her lack of assets, and partially prompted by Bobbi who frequently bullies her about it.

- Averted: Alice never has any issues regarding her bust size, or she is average sized or well-endowed.
- Alice is the star of a new series aimed at younger girls, so she's given a smaller chest to appear younger to help her relate with the target audience.
- Alice is the star of a comic in a women's beauty magazine. Alice's experimenting with supposed methods for a bigger chest serves as a medium for the author's advice to women regarding that subject.
- Lampshaded: Alice looks down her shirt, and says to her breasts, "Where are you guys?"
- Invoked: The very busty Bobbi routinely flaunts herself around Alice to stir up feelings of inadequacy in Alice.
- Exploited: Bobbi, of the Invoked example, notices Alice's preexisting angst, and flaunts herself to bruise Alice's self-esteem further, knowing that she would ask Charlie for a date as a measure to reinforce said bruised self-esteem. Bobbi does this because she knows Alice and Charlie would make a nice pair.
- Bobbi realizes she's going to meet the flat chested Alice, and having some jealousy inducing assets, chooses to incorporate a sweater into her everyday wardrobe to help smooth over their acquaintance.

- Discussed: Two characters are discussing, "It's sort of funny how ladies tend to get so flustered over something as insubstantial as their cup size."
- Conversed: Two characters are discussing a work they like, "Well, at the very least, I guess we should be happy they included a female character who doesn't look like she should have back problems."
- Played For Laughs: Alice is flustered at being surrounded by other women's huge and often awkward busts. Hilarity Ensues, Alice faking a big chest would be a source of comedy, with Gainaxing and the occasional Skinship Grope for good measure.
- Played For Drama: Alice is flustered at being surrounded by other women's huge and often awkward busts. Reality Ensues. The Deconstruction line provides some pretty sterling examples of this.
Fine! Go back to A-Cup Angst. You're only doing it because that page has bigger breasts than me, you perv!
