Smaller-chested people can get away with wearing bras that are more delicate or unlined; however, it can be tough to find the right cup and band sizes, since they’re less common than larger ones. Here are a few good options.
1. Sheer Unlined Demi Bra
$36 from Timpa in 32A-36C; because it’s so low, it still looks sexy without drowning your boobs in fabric.
3. Little Bra
$64 from Journelle in 28A-36B, intended for especially small frames.
4. Strappy Bralette
$20 from Brandy Melville in XS/S and M/L.
Even if you wear one of the more common sizes, it’s still easy to get stuck in a bra rut. These will make getting dressed in the morning extra fun.
9. Front-Closing Push-Up Bra
$30 from Calvin Klein in 32B-36C.
13. Crochet Bra
Bralettes aren’t just the territory of girls with A-cups! $28 from ASOS in M-L.
14. Lace T-Shirt Bra
It’s practically invisible under clothes. $76 from Chantelle in 32A-38F.
15. Cut-out Bra
$68 from Journelle in B-DD. Also, do yourself a favor and read the product description — it’s poetry.
16. Wireless Bra
Wireless doesn’t have to mean shapeless. $40-$48 from Victoria’s Secret in 32A-38DDD.
17. Full-Cup Multicolored Bra
For coverage without frumpiness. $70 from Huit in 32D-36DD.
Bigger bras that aren’t tacky or matronly can be hard to find, but more and more lingerie companies are starting to focus on making versions of these sizes you’d really want to wear.
18. Lace Plunge Bra
This bra ($51 from ASOS) ranges in cup size from 32A all the way up to 38I.
19. Small-Band Push-Up Bra
$64 from Journelle in 30A-36F (including plenty of large cup/ small band sizes, like 30E).
20. Lace Mesh Nursing Bra
$66 from Le Mystere Bra in 34E-38G.
24. Lace Bra
Available from Chantelle, which a busty friend says makes the best “pretty bras for big boobs,” all the way up to an F.
