What is considered a small bra size?

Some people call cup size A small, some might even say the same about a B or C cup.

Cup size A used to be the smallest bra cup size available. Now designers make other small cup-sized bras as well.

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. This is what nature is all about. No woman is the same. Women’s breasts come in all shapes and sizes. None of our boobs are the same.

Shouldn’t a small bra be as small as boobs get? Yes! Some designers do care and started their lingerie business, often out of their own needs.

Why I don’t believe these figures entirely?

  • The researches never talk about all small sizes, like AAA and AA (so it’s not interesting for their findings)
  • A lot of petite never enter a lingerie store because they don’t sell their cup size. How will these women ever be part of research?
  • I’ve learned that many petite women stick to their cup A or cup B, despite the fact that it may or never may have been their best bra size. Read more about the real difference between cup A and cup B »
