Since we are on the topic of dressing for small busts, we found so many good articles and blogs that are dedicated to this topic.

Our friend Treacle at The Lingerie Addict had an interviewed with Chrystal (By Baby’s Rule) and Amanda (32AAbra) about the lingerie industry’s attitude toward small-chested women and misconceptions about them.

Dressing for Your Body Type: Small Bust

Only a very small percentage of women have the “ideal” body type, which is slender and hourglass. Even though you can change your weight, it’s almost impossible to alter your body type. Thus, we are inspired to have a blog series about dressing for your body – enhance your strengths and downplay your weaknesses.

To begin, we’d like to talk about women with small busts. These women either have the triangle/cone shape or are petite. Celebrities who look like this include Keira Knightley, Julia Stiles, Nicole Ritchie, Kate Hudson, Natalie Portman, Kate Bosworth, etc. People with small busts should wear babydoll tops/dresses and ruffles around the chest area.

If you have a small bust: We highly suggest that you try our bras! They are cut in European standards and, thus, run on the smaller side. Instead of having a bust and cup size, our bras are marked XS, S, M, … which fit women in the 32A, 32B, 32C, 34A, 34B, 34C, 36A, 36B, 36C range. (View the size chart here.) The graduated padding give smaller cups natural-looking enhancement.

Recommended styles:

Cute dotted bra w/ small ribbon (XS)

Black push-up bra with crystal accents (S)

Antique pink silk & lace bra (XS, S, M)

The best thing about having small breasts is that your bras don’t require much support. You can be carefree with non-wire, soft bras like this cream lace and tulle triangle bra (S).

Do you have trouble finding small bras that fit? Have you ever tried an European lingerie line like Philippe Matignon? We would love to hear your feedback.
