All Things Great and Small
The best bras for every size
When it comes to bra shopping, finding pretty pieces in end-of-the-spectrum sizes – either small or large – can feel like mission impossible. Fortunately, there are some great new specialty-sized bras out there, whether your cups runneth over or you live by the phrase "good things come in small packages."
For larger busts, Soma Intimates recently introduced this comfortable bra, which is extra-supportive and smooth enough to wear under a tight-fitting tee. It runs up to a DDD-cup (the equivalent of a European F), and comes in several colors, including a just-plain-sexy python print.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, bra experts Panache just launched Atlantis, a pretty line for everyday use that's made in a substantially extended range of sizes, starting at 30AA. Balconettes are particularly flattering if you're petite, which is why our favorite is this tuxedo-inspired bra. As well as looking sophisticated, it subtly (and believably) adds a cup size thanks to an internal gel pad.
And perennial favorite Lailides offers a selection of the most beautiful petite lingerie on the market: lacy and delicate and perfect for date night. If you're choosing just one piece, this Coppelia bra is ideal since it's simple, feminine, and has a precise fit.
