Bra shopping isn’t anyone’s cup of tea, but finding the perfect bra style that offers equal amounts of comfort and support for smaller bust sizes can be particularly daunting. While options for small busts is already limited and finding the right fit is no walk in the park, the quest for the perfect bra doesn’t have to be headache-inducing.
Dora Lau, founder and president of Dora L International, is an expert when it comes to shopping for bras, so she was kind enough to share her wealth of knowledge with Shop TODAY. With her tips (and our product picks!), you’ll be on the road to finding your perfect match in no time.
Bras for small chest
It’s hard to find a bra that’s comfortable, supportive and flattering, but it’s not an impossible task. “Women owe it to themselves to find a bra that they love. You should think of a bra as an investment piece,” Lau told us.
It’s a common misconception that women with AA or A cups don’t really need bras, but Lau said this essential undergarment can help women with any bust size. “Gravity is going to be a fact of life and a well-fitting bra can help prevent stretching and sagging,” she said.
