Shopping for bras can leave a girl feeling completely deflated. As an A-cup myself (who fluctuated to a Double D when pregnant, then rapidly back down again), I always have such a hard time finding a bra that fits perfectly—you know, one that isn't padded to the rafters.
Whether you're flat or buxom, finding the right bra for your body can be the Holy Grail to unlocking your wardrobe. Here, four tips I've learned and live by.
Bras are for you, too
The idea that flat-chested women can't wear bras well is entirely a myth. (Unless going braless is your style.) Just because your gals are small doesn't mean they don't need support, or that you don't want to flash a pretty set of straps under a tank top every now and then.
Being small-chested gives you the major advantage of being able to bypass the uncomfortable stuff—so opt for a bra sans underwire and avoid the skin-digging so many other women have to suffer.
Add some definition
While a wire-free bra can be more comfortable, a structured bra will give you a more *defined* shape under your clothing. Hey, it's nice to emphasize the goods once in awhile.
Padding isn't *necessarily* the enemy
Styles that are slightly lined or lightly padded provide great coverage and comfort and look best with low-cut tops and dresses. But don't go overboard—the goal is to find a style that looks natural on you.
