Despite what the IG models and Kardashian-Jenners would have you believe, the goal of your clothing is not always to make your bust size appear bigger than it actually is. If you're one of those girls who isn't exactly blessed in the bust department, we say embrace it! Believe it or not, there are many advantages to not having huge twins on your chest to lug around—and many a busty woman will actually be jealous of your more manageable size. For one, it'll be much easier for you to rock dainty crop tops and scooped necklines without having to worry about slips or flashes. Plus, your back (which we're sure already hurts from being hunched over 24/7) will have a lighter load to carry—in 40 years or so, you'll be grateful.
So instead of constantly searching for the most heavily wired and padded bras to push your girls up, why not shop some practical, form-flattering styles that best support and complement your A or AA cups? Here are some tips for choosing the right bras:
First, know that every pair of breasts is different, even those that are smaller in size—and yes, no matter your size, your chest does need at least a little support. To find a bra that suits your body type, be sure to identify the shape and build of your bust. For instance, if the twins are bigger on the bottom, you’re more likely to benefit from a wider band underneatth whereas if your gals are fuller on the side or tend to lean away from each other, bras with wider backs and thicker straps may be more up your alley. The point is to choose bras that cater to whatever unique shape you're rocking up top. For the not-so-blessed ladies out there, you can’t go wrong with a triangle-shaped cup, which will more likely flatter your dainty chest and in turn, make what you’re wearing on top look more elegant and put-together. We list some great options below.
These are the best bras for small busts to shop:
