Look, at Hourglass Lingerie, we love to support hourglass women with a wider selection of large cup bras that are both comfortable and sexy. But that doesn’t mean we don’t support smaller cup women. Having smaller breasts doesn’t necessarily mean you have a smaller figure, and it can be hard to embrace your shape with the limited options available to fit all the nuances of female body types. Take strapless bras, for instance.
Strapless bras are engineered to grip the breast and sides to keep from sliding. This is harder to do the smaller the breasts might be. But when so many clothes — halter tops, strapless dresses, or backless dresses — require a strapless bra, smaller cup women are left frustrated trying to find a solution. Fortunately, there are options out there that can help you to wear your favorite outfits free from bra straps and embrace your particular figure.
Here are some of our favorites.
Strapless Push Up Bras
Push Up bras can be a boon to women with small chests, as they can help add depth to your curves. When it comes to strapless bras, this is even more important. Take, for instance, Parfait’s Nude Push Up Strapless Bra. This bra has not only an extra supportive band but foam padded cups to cling to your breasts and give you the lift you need. This bra is not only comfortable but practically invisible under your clothing.
Need a little extra support just to give you a boost of confidence? A bustier could be the perfect option. Bustiers have the appeal of strapless bras — the lack of straps provide the same versatility to your outfit while simultaneously continuing to support you — but extend down the waist instead of stopping at the chest. This offers you more support, and often more contouring, to ensure that your bra stays on. Here again, Parfait might be the brand you need, with a bustier that offers a low back and flexible full length boning. It’s good to keep in mind, though, that bustiers tend to work best in formal settings, so a moulded or push up bra is still your best bet in more casual situations.
