The 20 Best Bras for Small Busts

HALIE LESAVAGE
Stylish and comfortable bras for small busts used to be the unicorns of the lingerie department—impossible to find. Speaking from small-chested experience, bras for small busts usually skewed too girly or too plain. If a bra passed the style test, there’d be compromises on the fit test. Bras intended for small busts that looked wearable left me with slipping straps, gaping cups, and entirely too much padding.

That was then. Now, the best bras for small busts eliminate my old gripes and earn new compliments. In 2022, brands catering to 32AAs are becoming as plentiful as brands for 36Bs and Cs. Bras for small busts aren’t limited to full-coverage triangle bras or overinflated push-ups anymore. New styles have design features just for small breasts: shallow cups, convertible straps, and—about time—removable padding. Some small bust styles from Cuup and ThirdLove are so pretty, they almost demand to be worn alone. Then there are brands like Pepper, which focus on bras for small boobs and small boobs only.

Ahead, we narrowed down the best bras for small busts by fit and function. Whether you’re searching for a no-slip strapless bra, a convertible nursing bra, or an everyday t-shirt bra, these 20 bras for small busts will have you covered.

ThirdLove

Here’s another plunge option, but in a dreamy lace fabrication. Speaking from experience, this bra has great coverage without feeling bulky or matronly. (And if you want a more relaxed fit, the cups are removable.)

A shopper who calls this style her new favorite says, “This is my new favorite, go-to bra! I really enjoy the lace for its classy look, and it also peeks out on most my shirts and gives a bit of breathability. It is very comfortable and fits like a glove.”

Effortlessly alternate between a minimalist strapless bra and a style with extra support. Parade’s convertible bandeau is made from an eco-conscious, breathable fabric to keep you cool all day long—and it comes with a semi-sheer panel meant for showing off.”This is my favorite bralette I have so far, it’s the most comfortable and stylish and I feel like I can move around in it and it has a lot of support,” a shopper who wears a size small writes. “It’s also so cute and I
have the matching set[.]”

Natori
$68 AT NOTARI.COM
No list of the best bras of any size is complete without Natori, but it’s an essential for small busts with space in between. The reason? The deep plunge cut comfortably supports breasts that sit far apart.”This is an amazing fitting bra for women with A cup sizes,” one reviewer raves.
BEST BRALETTE
Fits Everybody Crossover Bralette
SKIMS

This little bralette from SKIMS has several stamps of BAZAAR editor approval. It ranks high on our list of the SKIMS products worth shopping and appeared on the 20221 BAZAAR 100 (our list of the past year’s very best fashion, beauty, and entertainment).

The appeal for small busts comes down to its plunge crossover shape—which gives ample coverage whether your breasts are close together or further apart—and its silky-smooth fabric. It has an average rating of 4.7 stars after more than 1,400 glowing reviews. “This bra is so comfortable it’s like you are wearing nothing!” one shopper writes. “I love the quality and it holds everything in place.”

BEST EVERYDAY BRA
Pepper

Classic All You Bra
$44 AT WEARPEPPER.COM

Not long after Pepper’s 2017 launch, its bras became must-haves for AA, A, and B cup wearers. It all comes down to design signatures that prioritize small busts, like shallow cups and lifting mesh.

The result? Full coverage that truly fits, according to its (many) five-star reviews—including one WALLETCRASHERS editor. If you can only choose one, start with the classic “All You” bra. It sits against your chest without any signs of gaping, but its underwires don’t dig or poke, either.
