  • Your Best Fit with The Little Bra Company!

    Hey Fans!

    In past posts, The Little Bra Company has educated you on some of the problems of an ill-fitting bra. This time, we decided to highlight what’s right about a perfect fitting bra.

    One of our customers, Gretchen, had this to say about her bra from The Little Bra Company: “Can I just say thank you? I just got home from a long day at work, changed into my pajamas, and forgot that I was wearing a bra. I received the Yvonne bra four days ago and yes, it's pretty and sexy and gives me a boost, but most importantly it is very comfortable. The first thing I noticed is that I am not tugging at my bra straps all day long to keep them on my petite shoulders; an unsightly and unprofessional gesture. I don't feel the wire digging into my sides. No wire marks on my skin either. Nor do I have to pull the bra down because it keeps riding up. The bra truly fits me well. It is such a relief knowing that I won't have to excuse myself to adjust my bra at work ever again,”

    Being comfortable, and preferably not even really noticing that you are ever wearing a bra are signs that you have made an excellent little bra purchase. Keep these 4 fit tips in mind every time you try on a bra:

    1) Straps should remain vertical and do not dig into shoulders.
    2) Band stays horizontal at all times during wear.
    3) Breasts do not spill out of cups.
    4) Wire fits snug underneath breasts; against the sternum.

    To get the perfect push-up and an even more flattering look, try out “The Scoop!”

    1) Put The Little Bra on. Lean down and allow your breasts to fall naturally into the bra cups.
    2) While leaning over, take your left hand to hold the bra in place, where the back wing meets the underwire. Now use your right hand to scoop your “little goods” to the center of the little bra. Repeat step with the right cup.
    3) Adjust shoulder straps tight enough to keep your breasts in place and supported, but not so tight that there is pressure on your shoulders. You should be able to put two fingers between the straps.
    4) You’ve got cleavage! Wear your favorite fashions with a small bra from The Little Bra Company.

    “The Scoop” method can be found under the Fit Tips tab on The Little Bra Company’s website. http://www.thelittlebracompany.com/fit-tips/

  • Does a Push-up Bra Really Give a Woman More Confidence?

    Hey Ladies!

    It is quite obvious to point out that men are provoked by the effects a good push-up bra has on a woman’s cleavage. But, what is more surprising is the heightened confidence cleavage can have on the woman wearing the push-up bra herself!

    For the first time ever, scientists have conducted experiments measuring the effects cleavage enhancing undergarments have on a woman’s confidence. According to a report from the Daily Mail, these trials propose that women wearing push-up bras feel 75% more confident than those wearing an everyday bra. This study conducted consisted of female participants aged 20 to 55. These women were filmed in their everyday interactions. Some of the women wore push-up bras, while others wore a non-push-up bra.

    After reviewing the films, the scientists concluded that women who had that extra lift smiled at least 73% more than women wearing the everyday bra. The women wearing cleavage enhancing undergarments also touched their foreheads and chins far less than those wearing everyday bras and didn't avoid eye contact with other individuals; which are all are signs of "low confidence.”

    The Little Bra Company offers a lot of options for smaller-busted women looking for that uplifted effect. Most of our small bras have contoured push-up padding, as well as optional/removable pads (also known as cookies). Here are some options that will boost your bustline and your confidence:

    Our Isis bra is rated the ***** 5 Stars on our padding scale; which means “Ooh La La Push-Up!” She has convertible straps and heavily padded demi-contoured cups to offer petite figures an enhanced bustline. Isis also features a gorgeous, sparkly tear-drop center detail in the front, between the cups, making small-framed women everywhere feel like the goddesses they really are! Isis is available in two colors: black and nude, so she can be worn with any outfit.

    For all you petite athletes looking for a flattering, not flattening, sports bra, your search is over! The Little Bra Company’s brand new small push-up sports bra, Elizabeth, is perfect for you! The Elizabeth bra is a lightly contoured, and breathable, sports bra that will give your breasts the support and shape you need at the gym. Her attractive silhouette will make you feel sexy even while you’re working it out!
    Elizabeth is available in three colors: black, petal, and ivory.

    Who could forget our best-selling bra, Lucia bra? Lucia, the must-have little push-up bra for every petite woman’s closet! She rates ***3 Stars on our padding scale. With her flattering, cleavage- enhancing, deep-plunge style, and convertible straps, the Lucia will go perfect with virtually any day or night time outfit! She comes in 8 signature colors, including black and nude as well as a luscious red; but this spring, The Little Bra Company is introducing Lucia in two BRAND NEW fashion color combinations: geranium/nude and hyacinth/mink. These bright and flirty colors will make every spring outfit more fun!

    A lead behind the study, Professor Geoff Beattie said, "My hope is that this research might deter women from seeking more drastic solutions to improve their confidence, such as breast augmentation, because it proves for the first time that what women wear can positively affect their behaviour,"

    We, at The Little Bra Company, couldn’t agree more.
    So before you get a boob job, please consider trying on a bra from The Little Bra Company first. You might find you can get all the confidence you need from one of our specialty push-up bras.

    How do you feel about the study conducted? Do push-up bras make you more confident?
    Feel free to share your thoughts, as well as your favorite Little Bra Company small bra!

  • Meet our Fashionable New Style, Julia!

    Stay fashionable and welcome little bra Julia to the TLBC collection!
    If you’ve been keeping up with the fashion trends these past few seasons, you know color blocks are very popular right now. Our new Julia small bra has contrasting nude and black color schemes. Her mesh fabric overlay, make Julia’s simplicity sexy, stylish, and unique from any other bra you’ve seen. This new style also comes with two sets of straps in nude and black for ultimate versatility. Julia is not your basic little bra. Lightly lined with optional crescent-shaped padding, for a little extra oomph, Julia is sexy with modern styling. The basic design and clean lines make the Julia flattering and comfortable small bra—a perfect staple in any closet.
    The Julia little bra is available in all 15 of our specialty small bra sizes. Please use our standard sizing tips: When sizing yourself, please round up for a more perfect fit. For example, if you usually wear a 30 in a generic brand, you may want to try a 32 in a TLBC bra.

  • Meet our New Sweetheart Bra, Nicole!

    Hey Fans!
    A few days ago, we introduced our brand new petite sports bra, Elizabeth, to the TLBC collection. Now, we would like you to meet little bra Nicole!
    Our new Nicole small bra is sweetly feminine with ribbon detail and soft lace. The subtly sexy demi-cup comes with optional push-up padding. There is no need to sacrifice comfort for style this time! With a cotton inner lining, and a higher rise under the arms for added support, Nicole will make you look and feel sexy! With her soft, delicate colors, Nicole is the perfect springtime bra!
    Fit Tip: The fit of Nicole is similar to our popular Ethel bra. The cups are a little more separated in the front, for customers who prefer less cleavage. However, you can still get our signature uplifted push-up effect with the additional optional pads! Nicole has a bit more stretch in the back than our other styles, so our size-up rule doesn’t necessarily apply here. She is the perfect small bra for those with slightly wider backs. For example, if you wear as 34B in our best-seller Lucia, and wear a 32B in other brands, you may want to try Nicole in a 32B.

  • Find the Perfect Fit with The Little Bra Company!

    Hey Fans!

    Sometimes, smaller-busted women may not even register on the typical 'size charts' of certain lingerie brands or stores. If you are stuck in this predicament, your best option is to try on bras that are closest to your size and realize why they do not work for your body. Here are some of the most common ill fitting bra problems:

    The bra band should not ride-up in the back, or squeeze your flesh in a way that causes pain/leaves marks. It should be somewhat level all the way around your body.

    The center front of the bra, or the fabric between your two breasts, should lie flat against your body. If it doesn't, you are probably wearing the wrong size band.

    The band should be comfortable and snug — you should be able to fit one to two fingers underneath it. It should also fit nicely on the last (most loose) hook. This will allow you to move to an inner hook as your bra stretches out over wear and time.

    If your nipples pop out of the cups, or if your breast tissue bulges out of them; you may need either larger cups or a fuller-coverage bra. The Little Bra Company’s Yvonne is our highest-rated petite t-shirt bra. This small bra provides a smooth silhouette with a little lace detail making this much more than a basic bra. http://www.thelittlebracompany.com/bras/smooth-cup/yvonne.html

    The underwire should not cut or dig underneath your breasts. If the underwire is not touching your rib cage, you do not necessarily need a larger band; you will mostly likely need larger cups.

    The cups should not be baggy, gaping or wrinkly. If they are they are probably too big.

    If the shoulder straps fall down or dig in, they will need to be adjusted.

    The Little Bra Company is here for your petite bra needs. All of our Little Bras are made especially for smaller-proportioned figures, and uniquely designed to give petite women a comfortably fitting bra, while enhancing her décolletage.

  • Tips Petite Women Can Use to Look Taller

    Hey TLBC fans!

    Although all our petite customers are not necessarily 5’4” and under, we know some of you are, and therefore, we decided to make a list of fashion tips and tricks that are sure to help elongate your small frame!

    Flats?!
    Of course, heels will elevate you to new heights, but if you want to wear the fashionable and trendy flats out there, choose a color that will give the illusion of an elongated body. For example, if you are wearing a short skirt, wear a nude flat to make your bare legs look longer. If you are wearing black pants, wear black flats. This will give the illusion of a couple more inches before the color hits the floor.

    Tighter is better
    Tighter clothing will emphasize your silhouette, ultimately helping you look taller. When you wear baggy clothing, you’ll see that your lines are not defined and will actually make you look shorter. If you have to wear the baggy lookm though, try tucking in your baggy shirt into tight jeans to at least give you a more defined waistline.

    Avoid capri pants or crop shorts
    If you are aiming to look taller, wearing capri pants or cropped shorts is unfornutately not the way to go. Instead of short shorts try Bermuda shorts, or shorts with a slightly longer leg. Knee-length or longer shorts will help make your legs have an overall longer appearance. Keep in mind that the same rule applies to skirts; those that end close to the ankles will make you look shorter, whereas those that end closer to the knee will help elongate the look of your legs.

    The Little Bra Company!
    Even though lingerie may not be seen on the outside, it definitely is the foundation to your entire outfit and is the piece of clothing that is the closest to your body. A bra with a good lift will create the illusion of a longer torso. All of The Little Bra Company’s small bras are specially engineered to create the perfect amount of lift and support for your petite frame. For sky-high elevation, The Little Bra Company recommends our best-selling Lucia bra, and our 5-star “ooh la la” padded Isis bra.

    Layering
    When done right, layering can help your body look a lot taller. There are several things that you will want to keep in mind if you plan to layer. Darker colored shirts should always go on the outside, as this is the color that people will be the most focused on. You should avoid layering ruffled shirts, mainly because they only add emphasis to the chest and neck area, rather than the rest of your body. Try out several shirts when layering to see what makes you look the tallest.

    Long Shirts
    Wearing shirts that are longer in length will make your torso look longer. This can add a few invisible inches to your body. Because longer shirts and layering is trendy this season, you will be able to find long shirts for all seasons. But keep in mind that tighter is better!

    Compliment with bright colors
    Is there a certain part of your body that you really want to emphasize? For example, let's just say that you have shapely, slender legs. If you want to use your legs to make your whole body look taller, then you should try rocking some bright colored pants. If you have a slim stomach, you may want to emphasize it by wearing a brightly colored shirt.

    Be a Proud Petite Woman!
    No matter what your height is, stand tall. Wear clothes that make you feel good, because we guarantee if you feel good, you will look good no matter what you wear. Wearing a bra that fits is the first step to feeling your best. Your intimate apparel should be comfortable and give you the shape you want for any outfit. The Little Bra Company offers smaller size bras for your petite body type that are not only functional, but also fashionable.

    There are many clothing companies that cater specifically to petite women.
    The Little Bra Company offers intimate apparel that will enhance and give shape to women with a smaller frame. Be a proud petite because “good things do come in small packages!”®
