The Best Lingerie For Small Boobs
Originally Published: 

Made from luxe materials like satin and lace, the best lingerie for small boobs is designed to comfortably complement your body, and you can choose from a wide array of styles, from simple bralettes to plunging bodysuits to cute two-piece sets.

Shopping for the best lingerie for small busts tends to be a far easier task than finding the perfect everyday bra to fit a small cup size. Still, there are a few things to keep in mind when you start perusing lingerie. For example, if you like to mix and match sizes and colors, you may want to avoid buying matching two-piece sets, and would be better off investing in a bunch of different separates. You may also want to consider avoiding styles that come with underwire cups because they often don't fit smaller chests as well. Instead, choose lingerie with either built-in support or no bra component at all. And be sure to think outside the traditional lingerie drawer, if you will. Things like bodysuits or sheer robes can also work wonderfully, whether you’re buying lingerie to wear in the bedroom or to feel more fabulous while you lounge around the house.

Above all, the most important thing to remember when shopping for lingerie is that we’re all different — and that's okay. Don’t worry about anything besides how good you feel in your new piece. Whether you’re a lingerie newbie or fancy yourself a connoisseur, these are some of the best pieces of lingerie for small-chested women.


A Sheer Bodysuit With A Lace-Up Back

This sheer one-piece has no cup to get in your way or cause discomfort. The halter bodysuit, which connects to a rose-patterned bottom, has a deep V-neck and adjustable tie of the halter means it can accommodate smaller busts easily. The back is mostly open, with a corset-like lace-up detail that can be adjusted to to various sizes, fitting up to a 42-inch back. It comes in 11 colors, like violet, peacock blue, and black.

Fans say: "I have a petite pear body type, small chested and fuller hips and this fit great and looks amazing, I can’t wait to surprise my husband! I also was impressed with the material, really soft and feels good on.”

This Sexy Lace Teddy In Plus Sizes

This lace babydoll two-piece comes highly recommended by thousands of Amazon reviewers because it is as comfortable as it is sexy, with a plunging V-neck in stretchy lace, and adjustable racerback spaghetti straps, and reviews indicate that it’s especially good for the small-chested. The lace bodice extends to a sheer mesh skirt with a cute split back, and a cheeky matching panty completes the set.

Fans say: "I love this. It’s sexy and fits perfectly. The top is very stretchy and comfortable which I feel is great for most breast sizes. The lace panty is nice but doesn’t stretch. Great set overall.”

Fans say: “Naughty and nice. Not too wild, but very sexy all the same! [...] Looks very good with a small bust. I'm sure it looks great with a larger bust, too, but I want my smaller busted sisters to know that this will look great on them. It does tie behind the neck, if that's something that would annoy you.”

Also, I ordered the smallest size and it still fit me above the knee. It is very flattering and a nice quality for the price.”

This Bodysuit That Stretches In All The Right Places

Plus, the top has a hook-and-eye closure, so you can ensure you get a proper fit from the triangle bra.

Fans say: “I was really worried about how a body suit would fit since I’m an A cup with wide hips. But it’s perfect! The cups aren’t too big but it isn’t tight around my hips at all. It’s cheeky in the back, so it sits high on my hips in the front. When I pulled it out of the bag it looked so small, but trust me, it stretches to the perfect fit!”
