Resources for small busts

I get asked all the time for advice for smaller breasts. I know that it can be just as hard to find a size like 28B or 30A, as it is to find my size! If you aren't sure of your size, click here for how to measure- it applies to smaller chests as well as larger ones! :-)

(Oh, and a random observation: a C cup in a smaller band size is one of the very hardest to find sizes! "small bust" companies usually go up to a B cup, but "big bust" companies start at a D! How frustrating!)

Here are some suggestions:

The Little Bra Company (Very pretty underwired bras in A-C cups, starting at a 28 band. Some people say their bands run a little small.)

Ewa Michalak (Yes, they do smaller bras, as well, and if you need a smaller size they will custom make it for you! This is really nice because you could need, say, a 26DD and it would still be a fairly small breast size. Read my review of the custom process here. They also have several models of very different sizes so you can see how the bra looks on various chest sizes! (See image at right)

Etsy sellers! There are a ton of lovely Etsy sellers who make lovely bras and lingerie for petite/smaller chested women. It makes me so jealous, I tell you! ;-)

I hope this helps some of you! If anyone has any more resources to share, please let me know in the comments and I will gladly add them!
