13 Gorgeous Small Band Full Bust Bra Brands, Amended

  |   By Elisabeth Dale

NOTE: Amending this post from yesterday to include one more fabulous small band full bust lingerie brand!

Today’s post is in response to a reader’s search for more beautiful small band full bust bra options. 

Seductive Vintage lingerie by What Katie Did

While it hasn’t always been true, there’s now plenty of competition in this niche lingerie category. I’ve watched it evolve and grow over the past decade. And a few labels have come and gone in that time, but there are still plenty of brands vying for a bigger share of this market. 

It was easy to put this list together because there’s more available in this category than ever before. There’s even a broader spectrum of choices; from small indies to bigger corporations, and casual to luxury designs.

What qualifies as a small band? That depends, of course, on both the manufacturer and the wearer. Bra brands all have different size and fit standards.

For this post, I choose companies with bands starting at 26 or 28 (see international sizing chart) or those taking custom orders in smaller sizes. Plenty of other full bust labels starting at 30-inches may also work for you—thanks to sister sizing. Cup sizes also vary, with some starting at DD or going up to J or N. Most brands ship internationally, and you can order direct from their websites.

Here are 13 14 gorgeous small band full bust bra brands, listed in alphabetical order, that reflect a range of personal lingerie styles:

Adina Reay. One of the newer small band full cup luxury lingerie brands, this UK-based designer brings a sophisticated and fresh perspective to the market.

Ewa Michalak.  What I like about Ewa Michalak is their willingness to show a variety of models in their advertisements. They not only feature different body types but ages—which is hard to find in the mainstream lingerie industry. This Polish brand also has a reputation for welcoming custom orders.
