How to Choose the Perfect Bra for Smaller Bust Sizes
Finding the perfect bra that is comfortable and stays in place is difficult enough as it is, but if you have a smaller bra size, it can seem impossible. Contrary to popular belief, bra shopping for a skinny girl isn’t as easy as you would think. Most petite figured girls today, just want a bra with a supportive fit that flatters their natural shape.
All breasts are not created equal and sometimes it can feel like finding the best bras for small busts is an endless saga of ill-fitting pieces. If you are working with a small chest (A to B cups), you need lift and support.
While the intimate industry has become more size-inclusive, the default range falls between 30A and 40D. If you are in the A to B cup range, there are ostensibly more options from lacy lingerie to padded push-ups.
A great bra is the one you don’t have to think about. It does its job of supporting, sculpting, or just defending against unwelcomed nip slips.
Since you want to make sure you are spending your money on high-quality bras that are worth the splurge and will last over time, we have put together bra styles that are durable, comfortable, supportive, and look great under clothing.
1. Sports bra
Most sports bras are designed to provide high-impact support. A sports bra can help you if you want a little bit of curve in your gym look. Sports bras help protect the breast tissue and hold them in place, giving you support and comfort during your workout.
Poppy’s Clove is the ideal sports bra for your workout sessions, it is lightly padded for maximum grip and is made of an extremely soft, four-way stretch Nylon and Spandex blend. It is manufactured with a stylish cross-back design.
2. Non-Wired Bra
Non-Wired bras, also known as wireless bras are designed without the hard underwire found in traditional bras. They provide support and comfort through alternative construction methods. The non-wired bra is ideal if you have small breasts and a perfect choice if you want to relax and unwind without additional support.
Triumph’s Minimizer 151 N is a non-wired and non-padded bra that comes with full cups and is known to provide full coverage. It is constructed with lycra fabric and offers you all the comfort you need with a supportive shape.
3. Push-Up Bra
If you have small breasts and looking for a bra that will provide you with a fuller look and cleavage then a push-up bra might be the one for you. A push-up bra is known to create the appearance of increased cleavage by the use of angled cups that contain padding which pushes the breasts inwards and upwards towards the center of the chest.
Triumph’s T-Shirt Bra 60 P is a push-up bra that is designed to give a smooth seamless look. It is made with special lycra fabric that allows you to move freely because of its stretchability. It is a padded and non-wired bra that comes with plain bands and adjustable straps.
4. Full Coverage Bra
A full-coverage bra is a type of bra that provides maximum coverage and support for the breasts. It is designed to cover the entire breasts, including the sides. They give you a natural lift and shape all while contouring your silhouette, these bras are the perfect choice for your everyday wear.
Poppy’s Blossom 004 is a beautiful padded bra made with 100% cotton and lace. It is a non-wired bra that comes with scallop edging, floral detailing, and cute bow details at the front. It is a full-coverage bra that includes adjustable straps.
Also, pay attention to the spacing of the cups. If your breasts are set wider apart, for example (which is the case for women with smaller breasts), a bra with touching cups isn’t great; instead look for a style that has a one-inch gap between the cups, to ensure that they are sitting right over the breasts instead of towards the center.
Ultimately, the kind of bra you think would be the best for you is a matter of personal preference. Some women may prefer the added lift and shaping, while others may prefer more natural-looking bras without additional padding. Remember to try on different styles and sizes as it may take some trial and error to find the right bra for your small breasts.
Embrace your petite body type and find your perfect fit. Remember that wearing a bra that caters to your specific requirement is essential for your confidence and overall mood too. No matter the shape and size, happy and comfortable girls are the prettiest, so embrace the comfort and seize the day.
