Earlier this year I did a post about buying lingerie, and I have really been looking forward to sharing a follow up addressing one of the questions I got asked the most: where to buy lingerie for the flat chested person who does not fit into an A cup? It is a difficult conundrum that I’ve struggled to solve.
I have had a lifelong fascination with lingerie and when I started collecting it, I quickly realized I had a major obstacle in my mission to acquire it: I did not fit into most standard A-cups. I’m about a 32AA. I don’t mind my flat chest at all (breasts in all shapes and sizes are wonderful things) but it does bother me that my small chest size is such an obstacle when it comes to buying pretty underpinnings. I bemoaned this in my earlier lingerie post and I was really happy to have so many readers who echoed my sentiment. Luckily I think that in the last few years the needs of small busted women in the lingerie market are starting to be adressed a bit more. For years I felt like the only bras I could find were super padded, and those still left me with gapping. Slingshot bras like those sold by Free People are fantastic for everyday wear, but what is a small chested lingerie lover supposed to do when they really want to dress to the hilt?
