    If any of you are in Scandinavia, Europe or Canada, or plan to travel there, Change Lingerie is the only store where I can find bras that fit.

    I have a big issue with bras, since I'm quite the exception here in my country, my back is smaller thab 32, yet I'm a C+ cup, most companies don't carry sizes like that, they just assume everyone can fit inside a B and adjust an S M L system. I dislike having big breasts, but I hate that I have to get awfully pricey undies if I want something remotely esthetically pleasing. I do like some of the stuff by Honey Birdette or Dita Von Teese, yet the shipping makes it thrice the original value. Oh well.

    Btw it doesn't matter how skinny I am my tits won't fucking shrink. Maybe that's why I hate EmRata so much lol, I can relate to her body and I hate it.

    Just wanted to say I finally purchased 2 bras from Lonely Lingerie based on recommendations here! They are so cute and you can tell they are made well :) I'm never going back to my Victoria's Secret bras!

    I'm feeling incredibly frustrated. I lost weight and my old 30C bras no longer fit properly. I also have joint pain in my ribs and sternum, and anything with a wire that doesn't fit perfectly exacerbates it. If I wear an ill-fitting bra for a couple of hours I can have joint pain that lasts the entire day. I was suspecting that my size was down to 28C or 30B, and all the bralettes I have tried on so far have been too loose in the band and either too tight in the cup, or simply don't offer enough material to cover my entire boob (I just want my nipples out of sight!).
    Yesterday I went to my favourite Change Lingerie and I was told they don't carry size 28C in store... :mad: I tried on 5 30B bras (all the models they had) and they were all loose in the band and the underwire was placed in a way that it was digging into my ribs and sternum :cry:
    I don't want to order a bra online since I'm having so much trouble finding something that fits in stores, and none of the bras that I have ordered in the past fit truly properly.
    I wish I could just go to work/uni bra-less but my nipples are always sticking out... even when I'm not that cold!

    I don't know what to do!:cry:

    Bumping an old thread, but anyone know of any really good strapless bras for small sizes?

    Not really for the support, just to give a nice shape when I wear tight, strapless dresses and hide my nips. All strapless bras I've owned have fallen down pretty quickly and most brands I can find go the lowest size of like 32B (10B Australian), I'm about a 28A/B (depending on, ahem, the time of the month) and would honestly appreciate a bit of silicone in there to hold it in place.

    I live in Singapore, so I don’t have access to most smaller European, American brands...
    Finding a bra for myself is such a hassle; because I have such an odd bust. My boobs are small, but all the bras that fit me in the front (they’re so small that even the 32A cups aren’t filled properly) hurt me terribly in the band area (they always leave red marks on my skin). Is it normal that I feel as if the bigger the band size, the bigger the cup size? When I go up to a 36A the cups do not fit at all... Still haven’t found a properly fitted bra :(
    Does anyone know a good bra brand for weird busts like mine?

    Umm I use to buy them at Primark (it s an european shop I think), they are really cheap and basics, as I only like to wear black bras. Also H&M is usually a good option!!

    Yes, cup size is not an absolute volume but relative to your band size. So for example I am a 30D/65D but actually my boobs are not that big. I think the cup volume would equal a 75B, though the shape is different obviously.

    There are tools online where you can insert your measurements and get your cup size or it might even better to go to a good store and they will measure you. Also even with same size there are different styles.

    Calvin Klein fits me best and they have small sizes. I also like Change (don't know if you have them in Singapore).

    It's worth investing in a good bra though, unless you don't have to like @SugarFree ☺️ which I only dare when partying

    Thought it was worth adding, but I find that calvin klein and pleasure state are the best brands for normal comfy bras for me as a small-framed girl with lil boobs.

    Just can't find anything strapless that doesn't end up around my waist without me realizing and giving me the look of a 90 year old's flat saggy titties because the cup bump ends up so low lol

    I often don't wear a bra, but when I do...
    I've got some sets from Agent Provocateur that I love, and some gold sequin, leather nipple pasties which I haven't actually had the opportunity to wear yet.

    One single La Perla bra (it's beautiful, although somewhat impractical because the ribbons on it are so long) and I have a few CK bras (not the trendy sports bra thing, but a couple from when CK used to do really nice bras that only suited skinnies).

    There's also a lot of crap in my extremely vast underwear drawer (think rivet bras that were all over the place, leather bustiers etc), I need to sort it out again.

    You can never have enough recommendations so seriously need to bump Aerie bras from American Eagle just because they exceeded my expectations not only in price, but most importantly, fit. Especially after growing up as if Victoria's Secret was the only place for women to get lingerie (we all know how bad the quality is and how unnecessarily high the prices are) the Real Me Full Coverage Bra feels as if you aren't even wearing anything at all for less than $30. They also have a variety of shades and in my opinion, their advertising has become far more appealing in recent times due to the inclusive variety of women in their campaigns.
