What is considered a small bra size?
Some people call a cup size A small, some might even say the same about a B or C cup. It depends on your perspective. Boobs come as small as they like. This is what’s nature is all about.
Luckily, during the last 10 years, designers started making bras in smaller cups than the A cup we’ve known for a long time. Read the full post about the average bra size and the need for smaller cups »
In the media boobs only seem to get bigger. In reality, it may be the case. But. There are lots of women with smaller boobs. Lots. No woman is the same. Women’s breasts come in all shapes and sizes.

A cup vs B cup
The bras 36B and 38B do not have the same cup size. Because when going up or down a band size so will the volume of the cup.
For women with smaller breasts, it is important to realize that bra sizes can be very close. Read more about the difference between A cup and B cup and the fact that you might fit more than one bra size »
Why many Petites wear the wrong size bra?
- like any woman, it can have become a habit to stick to something that is no longer good for us, like a badly fitted bra
- we settle for the bra size that we are used to wearing for years now, thinking this must be the best there is for us
- having small breasts, there is a bigger chance of choosing the wrong size because of the lack of knowledge and information in shops and on the internet
- most bra size charts have not listed the smaller cups, like AA and AAA cups
- because we have small boobs we tend to avoid lingerie stores
- the stores usually do not carry the smallest cup sizes and we get easily suggested a wrong size as well (and end up with a bra that is too big)
Maybe you’re happy with the bras you wear and you already know how to shop for a petite bra size. That’s great. For many years I certainly could not call myself a bra lover. Having a petite bra size didn’t help.
I believe in a well-fitted bra for every woman, whether she is petite, medium or plus-sized breasted. Women with a smaller cup size need a grown-up bra just like any other woman.
How do we really feel about our breasts?
‘Nature comes in all shapes and sizes’. In this light, I want to mention the work of Laura Dodsworth. She published the book Bare Reality, an amazing book about women and their breasts.
Laura spent two years photographing and interviewing 100 women about the breasts, bodies, and lives. Women from all walks of life took part, aged from 19 to 101, sized AAA to K, from a Buddhist nun to a burlesque dancer.
The book and this video are the best, and really for everyone to watch, both men and women. You’ll find all the books from Laura Dodsworth on Amazon »
Teen bras are different from bra tops because teen bras have actual cups in their design. The cups might be padded and may also have a wire in them. Teenage bras start from cup AA and will go to B, C, or D cups.
