You're you!: You are who you are - and you have small breasts. It's hard in today's world because so much attention is paid to giant breasts. Focus on all the great features you have and remember that small breasts are not some terrible disease. Be/act self confident, be polite and kind. If you don't get a date because of your breast size, he's a jerk you don't want anyway.

You're thin: I had to look up a conversion of stones to pounds. At 5' 11" and 9, 5 stone (=133 lbs), your body mass index is 18.5, so you are borderline underweight (<18.5 is underweight in an adult) breast size relates to body weight.
