How can I train myself to stop being so insecure about my breasts?

Since the boobs came in at 12 (I'm now 18), I've been insecure about them. They're not perky enough, my areolas are ugly, I have a few stretch marks, blah, blah, blah--you get the idea. The boobs in question are Cs with a medium pink areola, 2" in diameter (I know, I really did measure them; I've already been made fun of relentlessly).
Logically, I know breasts come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, etc. Emotionally/mentally, however, I'm repelled by mine. I desperately want the perky, firm Bs with areolas the size of quarters and all that. It's to the point where I can hardly stand to look at them in the mirror, let alone let my boyfriend see. He's wonderful and I want to be more intimate with him, but nausea sets in when I really think of him seeing my boobs. I think they're hideous; why wouldn't he?
How can I get over this? I'm already in therapy, but we've been dealing with other issues that take priority over this.
