As featured in The New York Times article "For the A-Cup Crowd, Minimal Assets Are a Plus" by Catherine Saint Louis, we carry some of the best brands for the lesser-chested.
Lula Lu is one of our faves that was prominently featured (and their motto of "small is beautiful" sums it up well). There's also The Little Bra Company (the name says it all), Timpa (whose Duet Lace Demi is a classic) and Simone Perele (famous for beautiful bras, with styles for small-busted babes who don't want to boost themselves beyond recognition but like the more natural silhouette that tends to be favored by Europeans).
As the story goes...
It is commonly assumed that small-chested women feel that nature’s lottery has left them coming up short. The parade of heaving bosoms in Victoria’s Secret catalogs not only suggests that bigger is better but also that supersizing with a push-up bra is universally desired.
Wrong, says Ellen Shing, the owner of Lula Lu...that cater[s] to AAA- to A-cup sizes. She says that while a small number of her customers come in looking for padded bras and tell her, “Make me as big as you can,” the majority “don’t want to supersize themselves.”
Those customers, including ones who are nearly ironing-board flat, “are happy with their bodies,” said Ms. Shing, 42, who wears a 36AA. “It’s a misconception still that you want to be bigger if you’re smaller.” She isn’t sure if the small-and-loving-it attitude she has noticed is “about pride or more like being O.K. with who they are.”
