So what about the girls with smaller busts? Don’t we deserve some tips too?! Yes, you do - and if you are an A cup (or something close), then here are some secrets we’re spilling.
You have to know them ALL!
1.You DO need one!
Contrary to popular belief, just because you have small boobs doesn’t mean you don’t need a bra. The support that it provides is essential, yes, EVEN for an A cup. Plus, it totally changes how some clothes look on you. Besides, when you’re working out or going running, even the slightest bit of jiggle is going to be bothersome!

2. Go wire-free!
No matter your cup size, the wire serves a purpose - of giving the bust a rounder shape. But in your case, you can afford to give that uncomfortable thing a miss, given that sagging is only a minor concern for you. It’s WAY more comfortable to go about your day without a wire poking at you - so yay!

3. The right amount of padding
Just because you’re an A cup doesn’t mean you have to go for the Level 4 push-ups, despite what the shop assistant would have you believe. Find the right amount of padding that give your boobs structure and flatters your figure, and stick with it. If you don’t feel the need for padding, though, you can totally just go without it. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

4. Bralettes are for YOU!
A super-athletic sports bra is great but even a lounge bralette will do the job for you. And have you seen those gorgeous lace triangle bras hitting the market right now? You’re just the person who can carry them off with ease!

5. Give the bra a miss!
There are of course those clothes that make wearing a bra a real pain. Why wear a tight strapless when you can get away with just nipple covers? More power to you if you already do this from time to time! Because honestly the feeling of going about town without a bra (and without anybody noticing) is just the best!
