Here at Bustle, we do lots of body positive content for big-chested people. As someone who wears H cups, I find Bustle's plus size recommendations super helpful. Now I want to pass on the love to my little-boobed siblings by sharing the one brand every person with small boobs should know: The Little Bra Company.
While small-chested folks tend to get prettier bra patterns, there's a lot of sacrifice that comes along with getting adorable florals, sweet colours, and bold stripes. As Cosmopolitan puts it, small bras are rife with issues, like "straps slipping, gaping cups and all sorts of struggles to find the right size and shape."
Cosmo also offered a list of practical advice for small-breasted people — everything from the basic "get fitted" to "don't be afraid to ditch the shop and look online." And that's where The Little Bra Company comes in. While the brand's pieces are available in lingerie shops around the world, its full selection can also be purchased online. Owner Emily Lau founded the company in 2007, hoping to create better-fitting bras for folks with small boobs.
The company's About Us page cites some of the most frustrating struggles for A, B, and C-cuppers, including, "Have you ever wished that you could fill out that v-neck or low-cut dress better?" and "Have you ever had to shop for bras in the tween section?"
If you face any of the above challenges, or if you're just ready to give a new brand a try, The Little Bra Company is here for you.
Bijou, $60, thelittlebracompany.com
The brand offers everything from padded cup bras like the Bijou to sweet and sultry lace pieces like the Mercedes to sleek chemise babydolls. You can find everyday bras, lingerie, wire-free bras, and even bridal bras, all available in A, B, and C cups.
Check out a few of the company's products below.
Nicole, $60, thelittlebracompany.com
The Nicole is a soft-cup bra with optional (!!!) push-up padding, making this a good fit for anyone who isn't always comfortable with padding, but likes it when the mood strikes.
Julia, $60, thelittlebracompany.com
The Julia is one of The Little Bra Company's signature pieces — a T-shirt bra with a comfy mesh overlay. This bra also comes with straps in both nude and black, and also has removable padding.
Elizabeth, $60, thelittlebracompany.com
If you're tired of struggling with sports bras, this is the one for you. The Elizabeth is built for activity, with its racerback and a soft elastic underband. It's wire-free and lightly padded, and the brand says it's so versatile that it can also be worn as an everyday bra and a maternity bra.
Finding bras can be a struggle — and that seems to be true no matter what size you are. But with The Little Bra Company, small-chested people are only a few clicks away from their new bra BFF.
