6 reasons why small boobs deserve a fine bra

1.  We are no little girls but grown-up women

Small cup-sized women need beautiful lingerie, just like any other medium or bigger cup-sized woman.

We only want bras for small cups that fit us just right ☺

Not to worry!

Some lovely brands do design bras for small chests, designing them out of their own needs and the women around them.

2. Small is beautiful

It’s what nature is all about.

There is no such thing as a standard woman’s body. This goes for our boobs as well. Sure thing.

  • we want the same choice of bras all women have
  • we have moods and want to vary from a basic bra to a sexy lace bra
  • and all there is in between…
  • a well-fitted bra feels comfortable all day long and will give you confidence
  • your clothes will look better

How do we feel about our breasts?

I want to mention the amazing work of Laura Dodsworth.

In her book, Bare Reality 100 women bravely share un-airbrushed photographs of their breasts alongside honest, courageous, powerful, and humorous stories about their breasts and their lives.

You can watch the short video about the book Bare Reality. It’s beautiful!

Women from all walks of life took part, aged from 19 to 101, sized AAA to K, from a Buddhist, a nun to a burlesque dancer.

3. No size should be discriminated

How small is small anyway?

Well, it depends on your perspective. Some people call an A cup small, some might even say the same about a B or C cup.

In reality, some lovely brands do design AAA and AA cup-sized bras.

In the media boobs only seem to get bigger. In reality, it may be the case. But, yet still, lots and lots of women have them.

Small boobs.

I think we could fill up a whole new planet with us Petites.

4. We have nipples too

We have nipples too.

And no, we don’t want to show them all the time and also need them protected when moving around.

How come many Petites still wear the wrong bra?

I can think of a few reasons.

  • as for any woman, it can have become a habit to stick to something that is no longer good for us, like a badly fitted bra
  • we settle for the bra size that we are used to wearing for years now, thinking this must be the best there is for us
  • having small breasts, there is a bigger chance of choosing the wrong size because of the lack of knowledge and information in shops and on the internet
  • most bra size charts have not listed the smaller cups, like AA and AAA cups
  • because we have small boobs we tend to avoid lingerie stores (we indeed do not belong there)
  • in stores, we easily get suggested the wrong bra size
  • how can someone give us proper advice not selling your size and probably may not know the existence of the smallest cup sizes?

5. Small boobs sag too

Smaller boobs have less breast tissue than larger boobs. But this does not mean they are free from sagging.

A lot of things cause breasts to sag in some way.

Not only by aging, but think of fluctuations in weight, hormonal changes, genetics, and operations, or after a period of breastfeeding.

6. Small boobs like a little extra

A bra that fits you perfectly doesn’t dig at the band or straps, or gap at the cup. It moves with you rather than against you for support that’s comfortable.

Once you experience a well-fitted bra you never want to go back. 

Only a well-fitted bra will make you feel good.

Your clothes look better, you feel better, sexier…

Creating cleavage with a bra that is not your size will not make you feel great. It is uncomfortable to wear.

Women wearing a 40AAA, a 38AA, and a 36A all wear a bra that’s different in numbers alright, but all have the same cup volume. Meaning: that if you go up or down a band size, you should change the cup size as well to keep the same volume.
