Finding the best bras for small busts might not seem like much of a challenge. Those who wear bigger cups often envy petite women who can go bra-less.
But just because one can, doesn’t always mean one wants to go without a bra. Women enjoy wearing feminine lingerie whatever their body and breast size. What we wear underneath simply enhances what is worn over our undergarments. They’re not called “foundations” for nothin'.
Fashion trends in bras for small busts often swing between two extremes: those bumping you up one or two cup sizes or offering no more than a simple lace bandeau for structure and support. Neither choice is wrong. But there's more to small boob lingerie than just two options. And these all-grown-up petite foundations could never be mistaken for teen training bras.
Five bras for small busts that complete any lingerie wardrobe:
Who says a wire free bra makes you look shapeless? This Lula Lu Petites Kallie is lightly padded and the perfect piece to play peak-a-boo under any low-cut fashions. The lovely iris colored lace begs to be shown. The Lula Lu Petites Kallie is available in sizes from 32AAA to 38AA.
