And, which is is kinda weird, I don't know if it's do popular in english zone too - unpracticaly long hair. Hips, knee lenght... And never braided or styled in any practical way. Like... HOW? It's impossible to live that life, gurl.
The answer is obvious:
Cantr is full of anime characters.
(How do those kunoichi on Naruto fight or do anything with their hair as long as it is and down
. Asdfghjkl Kishimoto! At least Sakura realized her hair was a burden and cut it short so it wasn't anymore.)
As for me I tend not to describe my female characters that way unless it's unusual or I really don't want other people superimposing.
One of my character was described as small-breasted. Or maybe that was her hair length. I forget at this point. #sleeper
Chee may or may not have had a sizable chest, I don't remember very well. I remember imagining her that way. But she was also supposed to be the stereotypical attractive blonde ditz. (I abandoned the "ditz" pretty quickly because I couldn't stand it lol. She was one of my first two ever. Get over it.) She only ever had one love interest I think.
Stella was flat and had a barrel chest. This was a skeletal deformity (she was a dwarf, based on my dachshund, who to my knowledge does not have a skeletal deformity, but anyway). I have art of her that depicted her with breasts. Thanks for the art, I appreciate it, but she doesn't have those. lol (I gave up and drew her with them sort of, mostly because I stopped drawing 2D people with no shape to them in fourth grade and I don't remember how to go back to that; also why I don't draw men ever).
Oh here's one! I had one who was skeletally thin. Like literally, she was a walking skinbag of bones, not an ounce of muscle or fat on her. You know what makes up most breast tissue? Fat. So I thought that anyone who bothered would come to the logical conclusion that she too was relatively flat-chested. Not so. And then she ended up in explicit sexual relations lol. I didn't have the heart to remind the other person that they were doin' it with a skeleton. (I still have those turn reports in my email. I cringe every time I think about them. Fortunately they are the only ones.)
I have a female friend who is writing a self-insert fanfic but she's transplanted into a 9 or 10yo girl who hasn't developed yet, and there's a line about how she had been proud of her chest and was a bit sad to be flat again. And I had to cringe, especially in light of that HuffPo article shared on the last page, but. XD
