Small boobs need support from a sports bra like any other size. Petite women do have a challenge when shopping for a sports bra. 6 Sports bras for AA & AAA

Why do small breasts need a sports bra?

Whether your breasts are small, medium or plus size, during sports and activities our breast tissue is moving up and down.

Your smaller breasts surely need a sports bra to reduce the bouncing.

The bra is also there to protect your nipples. And to lift what needs to be lifted.

Do you need some more volume and lift to get that sports top look right on you?

A good option is the use of soft foam pads.

You can add this basic pad to all your lingerie really, and also to your sports bras.

The thin pads give a modest and smooth outline. I like to sew them with a few stitches to make sure they stay in place perfectly.

What styles work for small breasts?

Compression-style sports bras

A compression sports bra is designed to press the breasts to the chest. Because we have less breast tissue encapsulation really won’t work for us.


Cup-sized sports bras

You will only find a few AA cup-sized sports bras. Of course, I’ve listed those in my selection of sports bras. Some A-cup sports bras will do for AA ladies as well, but surely not all of them.

It’s best to read reviews if needed, so you can learn from other women who bought the bra. 6 Sports bras for AAA & A


Bra sports tops in regular small, medium, and large size

A bra top or bralette-style sports bra will provide only light support. Great for daily wear and low-impact activities, like yoga, walking, and cycling.

Love the light feel of a bralette? Yes, they are great on our smaller boobs. See Bralettes for Small Cups
