Holy! size 26??
What is your bust/rib cage measurement?
You must be tiny!
Ribcage is 25 inches, bust is 32 inches. A size 26 sounds small and weird but many people measure their bra sizes incorrectly (ie many girls in a 32a should be wearing a 28c) so it wouldn't be an uncommon size if people wore bras the right size. However...a 32a doesn't need as much support as a larger cup size so they are fine in a 32 and most women with small ribcages do not have large cup sizes so it's impossible to find small band + large cup...

Even with thin t-shirts?
See I don't wear a bra either, but I feel like I have to cover my nips with at least something (bralet) if I'm going in public with just a t-shirt on. Any other situation I don't.
Hence the kid's crop tops :lol:

That is my exactly my problem, small ribs and large cup size. I have the hardest time finding bras.

I just bought lingerie for the first time in months and I figured here is the only place I can vent about this fact but apparently, VS Very Sexy line does not carry 32C. (I had no idea I was a C-cup anyway until today :wtf:) They said that the 34B was exactly the same (umm...no), which eliminated about half of the things I thought I could try on.

I guess I'm glad I'm starting to have what seem like skinny girl problems? And I guess I'm okay with that!:grin:

Please don't take any offense to this question, but I'm curious when you wear your bra's do you have any spillage over on your back? (like back fat hanging over that you can see through your shirts?) Sorry those are the wrong words but I don't know how else to ask it :oops:

Well, I'm really flat-chested and it looks like this is it as I started developing boobies when I was only 9. So I'm A. What I have problems with is finding bras without padding and push up and stuff. I just don't like that. I don't mind so much being flat because clothes look good :grin: But I wish there could be more options in bras. I was lucky and found a few at Vero Moda, of all places. And one at H&M. Saw some at COS but I like cute bras (that are age-appropiate). Also found some at Magasin in Copenhagen, really afforable in lots of pretty colors so I felt like I was in heaven. :p

No back spillage, on thinner people back spillage is actually caused by bras that are too big in the band and are riding up. I get back spillage when I wear 28 or above.

I hate you! I developed really late and well am definitely not flat chested. But yeah, it's really difficult to get bras that are not padded in small sizes. I wish I had some ideas but am not really a bra person, sorry.

Yeah, I've actually noticed that a lot of the girls who started developing late got bigger boobies than us who started really early. Maybe a coincidence but it sure looks like this happens to a lot. I actually hated my flat chest at first but then I started to make an effort to change how I felt about it and realized that I don't mind so much after all. But isn't it often so that we want the opposite of what we have? I saw too many girls feeling really timid and embarrased about their small chest to the point of it limiting their life, and I figured I don't want to live like that so I better start changing.

I've always had a small chest, but recently my bust measurement has gone down to 27 inches so I generally only buy bralettes or seamless crop tops for pre-teens :shy:

That being said though, I prefer wearing bralettes to padded bras as they're so comfortable and lightweight. I don't really care for extravagant lingerie, and prefer to be more practical - the thought of underwire, hooks, ties and boning just makes me feel so restrained and uncomfortable...

Phillip Lim bras are definitely my favourite, they're so dainty and feminine, whilst being minimalist at the same time!

Lonely by Lonely Hearts bras are a gorgeous option for girls who want something wireless.

These are so pretty! Unfortunately they don't ship to Canada ):

Anyone know any stores that sell similar bralettes?
Unless I'm wearing my proper size (28C-30C), I get bruises on my sternum from bras with underwire ):
Bralettes are MUCH more comfy.
you could try http://www.oysho.com/ , but i don't know if they ship to canada... hope you like it :kiss:

My bra size is 28d, it's sister size is 30c, so I am able to find that size at La Senza and it fits well. 28 size bras do not exist! I've seen them at online retailers but it's too expensive for me.

well I'm either a 33A or a 32B depending on stores and what kind of bra I want to buy, but I really love intimissimi, yammay and etam(sometimes triumph but most of their bras are too big). They offer a nice range of cheap bras and bralettes.

Hanky Panky has some pretty cute bralettes and are affordable. I typically get bras from there and I shop on herroom.com for a large variety of brands. They have la perla for discounted prices so that is where I buy my luxury pieces.
