Check out Emily's interview at the Curve New York show for a sneak-peek at some of The Little Bra Company's new styles; as well as the sports bra for petite women!
It’s time for a history lesson….. a bra history lesson! :)
Bras have been around since the late 19th century. By the early 20th century, more contemporary style bras had emerged. Since then, the garment has evolved in both shape and trend.
The Little Bra Company comprised a list of 6 iconic bra moments in the last 50 years.
There’s a reason Bettie Page earned the title “Queen of Pin-Up.” Men couldn’t resist her jet black hair, and signature bangs. Bettie Page became one of the very first pop culture idols by showing her bra in magazines.
This iconic photograph of Raquel Welch in the 1966 movie “One Million Years B.C.” is probably one of the greatest movie posters of all time. A gorgeous woman wearing mankind’s first bikini: who doesn’t love that? Because of this famous picture, Raquel quickly became the star of the film (even though she only had one line!).
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…. we were introduced to Star Wars’ Princess Leia, better known as Carrie Fisher. The opening scene of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi shows Princess Leia in a brass bikini. Since then, she has been the fantasy of every man and jedi on earth and in space.
The cone bra was a popular selling bra the in 1940’s and 50’s. So what made Madonna’s cone bra so shocking? She severely exaggerated the shapes of the cones and wore it as a costume for a performance. Madonna definitely knows how to make headlines!
On July 10, 1999 the US Soccer team won the Women’s World Cup! The victory in the final game was a result of a penalty kick given by Brandi Chastain. To celebrate her goal, Brandi slid onto her knees, took off her jersey, and threw hear hands in the air. This picture became an iconic image and graced the covers of numerous magazines.
Lady Gaga is one of the most creative artists the world has ever known. When asked about her Pyro Bra, she spoke about a vision she had of her breasts exploding and asked the Haus of Gaga to make it happen. As we all know, Haus of Gaga achieved the Pyro Bra and Lady Gaga has been seen wearing the creation many times.

TLBC wants to hear from the fans:
Who do you think was best dressed at the event?
Did you notice any other fashion trends?
As we all know, today is the 10th anniversary of one of the most tragic events in U.S. history. TLBC would like to thank all the firefighters and men and women in the military for keeping us safe and free.
There are many different ways you can show your appreciation for these amazing peoples’ hard work and dedication. You can wear a yellow or black ribbon, bake cookies for your local fire fighters, or simply take a moment of silence for all of the lives that were lost.

Hey TLBC fans!
Since the majority of our customers fall into the petite category, we decided to make a list of fashion tips and tricks that are sure to enhance your look.
Be Aware of Patterns
Try to avoid horizontal lines, wide prints, large floral patterns, and small detailed prints. All of these designs will “squish” your body.
For Example: If you would like to wear stripes, vertical stripes are the best choice for petite women. You will be surprised at how much it will lengthen your body. Diagonal stripes have a similar effect, but the illusion will not be as strong as if you were to wear verticals.
Don’t chop your body in half
By pairing a cute solid colored top with a similar solid colored skirt, pant, or short, your outfit will flow better because it will create an elongated silhouette. .
You can also try wearing a maxi dress. A maxi dress will make you look longer and leaner.
Be careful when wearing a belt. More flattering ways petite women can sport a belt are 1) placing the belt directly under the bust line, or 2) wearing the belt on your hips.
Shoes are the most effective way a petite woman can lengthen her figure.
The easiest way you can elongate your legs is by rocking a cute pair of heels. A higher heel will make you look taller and improve your posture.
If you do not feel comfortable in heels or stilettos, try wedges. Wedges are easier to walk in, but still provide you with a few more inches of height.
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. It may not be seen on the outside, but it definitely is the foundation to your entire outfit and is the piece of clothing that is the closest to your body. 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. You deserve to wear something beautiful on the inside and out.
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!"®
