While there are plenty of advantages to having a small bust — not having to worry about a nip slip sporting a low-cut top and no “bounce-back” during sweaty Zumba classes — finding a bra that fits a small-chested frame is definitely not one of them. I know, I know — whether you’re a AA or a DD, finding a well-fitting bra isn’t easy, but for us less-endowed members of the IBTC (if you know, you know) bra shopping comes with its own unique set of struggles. From dealing with the dreaded gap situation to ridiculous amounts of padding, if you’re not a “standard size,” you know that tracking down the perfect bra can be a straight-up painstaking task.
For reference, I usually wear a size 32A, and like most boob-owners, my cup size changes a bit with weight changes and hormonal fluctuations, I can absolutely speak to the challenge of trying to find flattering and comfortable bras that you know, actually fit my lady bits. In the past, I’ve resorted to scanning the junior’s section with the hopes of finding a better-fitting bra, but despite my modest bustline, I’m a grown woman and I have curves in other places too — I shouldn’t have to resort to an ill-fitting training bra designed for sixth graders, am I right?
If I’m going to be totally honest here, I’ve longed for a buxom pair of breasts since I was a kid. Embarrassingly enough, I even stuffed my bra with toilet paper in middle school to fake a fuller chest (although I don’t recommend this DIY “hack” at all whatsoever, guys), but I’ve grown to love my small but perky set over the years. Regardless of accepting the genetic card I was dealt with, that doesn’t mean I want to go braless all the time due to a lack of decent options. Fortunately, the small-chested bra space has come along way in the past few years, and there are some pretty stellar options out there. Scroll through below to check out my favorite bras that’ll fit and flatter all my fellow Itty Bitty Titty Committee ladies out there.
