bras for small busts

Small boobs have their perks. They look amazing in pretty much any style and they make going braless a simple solution for backless tops and dresses (something us full-busted people envy!) If that wasn’t enough, you can also add a cup size or two with a push-up bra – making it easier than ever to increase your cup size if you choose. Small busts truly have the best of both worlds.

Like any other size, small busts need support too. The amount of support, coverage, and comfort you need will depend on your personal comfort preferences. You might opt for a wireless bra instead of one with wire because you like the fit. On the other hand, a lacy bralette or triangle bra might be your new go-to. Your breast shape and band size also play a role in the support you’ll need. Small busts include AA, A, B, and C cups – so if you wear a 38A, you’re in good company!

Whether you’re shopping for new bras or looking for one or two beautiful bras to add to your lingerie wardrobe, the sheer number of bras available to choose from can be overwhelming.

Here are our five favorite bras for small busts:


Who doesn’t love bralettes? These beautiful undergarments are a stunning addition to any outfit. One of the perks of having small boobs is being able to fit into XS, S, M, and L sizes. You can buy your bralettes off the rack without worrying about a lack of coverage because you’re confident your go-to size will fit!

Demi bras

As one of the most universally flattering bra styles, demi bras are the perfect match for small boobs. This gorgeous style is available in both molded and non-molded options depending on what you like. A molded demi bra will lift, center, and shape your breast tissue for a fuller and rounder look while a non-molded demi bra will show off your beautiful, natural shape.

Push-up bras

Need a little extra boost? A push-up bra is sure to do the trick. Push-up bras will give you the lift and ample cleavage that you’re looking for. Their design will enhance your small boobs with graduated or removable padding for a fuller look. Plus, you can always add in a silicone push-up pad (fun fact: they’re also called “chicken cutlets”) to increase your bra size by a cup size or more!

Triangle bras

Triangle bras have been around for a very long time. This minimalist bra style is a great choice for small busted people. The triangle cups offer lightweight support and shaping for small busts, which is sometimes all that you need. Triangle bras are excellent sleeping bras, lounge bras, and weekend bras, but you can wear them anytime, too.

T-shirt bras

Looking for a rounded, contoured breast shape? A t-shirt bra might be your new favorite. This popular style features soft padded cups for opacity (and to prevent nipple coverage), a supportive band, and a few different varieties of necklines (demi, plunge, etc.) to choose from. T-shirt bras are perfect for work, school, and pretty much anywhere you’d be looking for a little more coverage.

Bralettes, demi bras, push-up bras, triangle bras, and t-shirt bras are some of the best bra styles for small busts. Which style is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below!
