Stop growing at 16?
Posted on: 03/01/2004
okay im a 16 year old female and i started my first period when i was 14 well i worryed my breast arent going to grow im still in a A cup and ive noticed on both of my parents sides of the family the women have B-DD, people are telling me i stop growing at 16. So please help me make sence of this. Does family sizes help determine what i might be or do i really stop growing at 16??? Thanks
Lucky for you, people are wrong. Everyone grows at a different pace and not everyone stops growing at 16. Your body will be just right for you, and there is no way to tell when you will be "done." Relax!
