11 Bra Brands for Smaller Busts

  |   By Estelle Puleston

The lingerie options for DD+ sizes continue to grow and grow. But at the other end of the scale, it can seem like small bust customers are forgotten. Far fewer articles get published or Kickstarters launched for smaller busts than for full bust lingerie.

There are however quite a few brands out there catering to this niche. You have to know where to look. I don’t mean just core-sized (A-D cup) brands that offer some smaller sizes. But also small bust specialists that go as far down as a AAA cup. And that design exclusively with the typical fit issues smaller busts face, such as cup gaping, in mind.

Plum Pretty Sugar

Below you’ll find 11 great lingerie brands for smaller busts. And the best bit? Not one of them assumes you want tons of padding! Some offer it as an option, but they’re all here to help you celebrate your natural shape.

Duet Lace Underwire Demi Bra in Neon Pink
Available in sizes 32A-38C
via Timpa

Timpa

This A-C cup brand’s philosophy is to do one thing and do it well. They don’t release lots of different designs. Instead, Timpa has perfected a single bra shape that fits flawlessly on a small bust. It’s available in mesh or lace, and an ever-changing palette of colors.

All You Bra

via Pepper

Pepper

Another small bust specialist with a low product range, Pepper has so far only launched one bra. It’s available in black, beige and mint, and comes in AA-B cup sizes. Like molded cups, but usually find they gape? These are made shallower than average for an improved small bust fit.

AIKYOU

This brand shuns padding in favor of lightweight, wireless bras. They have a minimalist and modern aesthetic. All styles are offered in black, plus sometimes white and other muted tones. AIKYOU may use the typical size range of XS to L, but designs fit AA-B cups only.

via Ysé

Ysé

Although French brand Ysé offers many styles in a D cup, they are primarily known as a small-bust favorite. In true French style, they focus on ‘pretty’ lingerie and are well worth checking out if you love lace.

Little Women

The Little Women website sells small-bust bras by lots of brands. However, their in-house line covers 30-40 bands and AAA-B cup sizes. There’s a good mix of simple basics and prettier, special occasion pieces.

Third Love

Third Love is not a strictly small bust brand since they go all the way up to a US H cup. However, their sizing does begin at a 30B, 32A or 34AA. And uniquely, they offer a few half-cup sizes such as 34A½ for a truly perfect fit. What’s more, you’ll find large-band-small-cup sizes here. Forty to 46 bands begin at a B cup, and they make a 48C too.

The Little Bra Company

This brand offers something that many other small-bust lingerie brands do not—28 band sizes. They have an extensive product range, from plain t-shirt bras to fancy, lacy pieces. They offer a 0-5 ‘padding scale’ filter to help you find the level of added boost you want, if at all.

Elma Lingerie

This indie-designer brand describes itself as “sexy and comfortable lingerie for small busts.” Everything is handmade, and all bras are of the unwired, bralette variety. For some designs, you can choose if you’d like yours made unlined, lined, and padded.

Pivovarova Lingerie

Another small, handmade brand here. These are the types of brands where you’ll often find the most usual-looking styles. Like a couple of others on this list, they make larger cup sizes too. However, Pivovarova is worth a mention because they offer AA and A cup sizing in as high as a 52 band size!
