  • The Hottest Petite Athletes!

    Hey Fans!

    In spirit of the 2012 London Olympic Games, The Little Bra Company would like to honor and appreciate some of the hottest petite women in all different types of sports!

    Danica Patrick (Height: 5’2”)
    This sexy race car driver doesn't need size to conquer her field. Patrick, known as the face model for Go Daddy, is just as skilled on the track as she is off. Her work in the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and FHM has garnered consistent attention.

    Alicia Sacramone (Height: 5’1”)
    This American began her artistic gymnastic career at the tender age of 8. What she didn't predict was that she would finish growing when she reached the height of an 8-year-old boy. Alicia has ten gymnastics world championship gold medals. Sacramone clearly never let her doubters stand in her way.

    Kelly Kelly (Height 5’4”)
    Working for WWE on its Raw brand, this professional wrestler and diva has made quite the career for herself. A Divas champion in her rookie year, Kelly Kelly has also found a niche in modeling. She has appeared in FHM Online and was once ranked No. 82 on Maxim's Hot 100.

    Heather Mitts (Height: 5’4.5”)
    Currently a defender in the Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) league, Mitts is often placed in the upper echelon of sexy female athletes. A two-time Olympic gold medalist and a member of the United States women's national team, she has always been used to pressure, considering her years at the University of Florida. Pressure from fans to pose more may also be in high demand.

    Elena Reid (Height: 5’2”)
    This American boxer can be seen as the female version of Manny Pacquiao. While her nickname is "Baby Doll," Elena is no lightweight. 19-6 as a boxer and 4-1 as a mixed martial artist just about says everything!

    Bia and Branca Feres (Heights: 5’3”)
    Bia and Branca Feres are Brazilian synchronized swimmers. These twins have been featured on the cover of Spanish-language magazine VIP after starting their swimming careers at the age of seven!

    All athletes deserve the best support when it comes to sports bras, even if you wear a smaller bra size. If you are a petite athlete, and want a petite sports bra that won’t give you a “strapped down” look, your search is over! The Little Bra Company would love to recommend our very first petite sports bra, Elizabeth! Elizabeth is a specially engineered sports bra with light padding and structured seaming. She will support and give your breasts a shapelier silhouette, leaving you feeling sexy while you’re working it out! Elizabeth is a great small bra for petite women during their pregnancy, or just anytime you want to wear a wireless bra. There are no wires, clasps or adjustors on Elizabeth; she is a pull-over little bra.
    The Elizabeth petite sports bra is available in all 15 of our specialty small bra sizes!

    One thing all of these petite athletes have in common is that no matter what their height is, they are confident and always stand tall. 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!”®

  • 5 Reasons Why You Should Love Having Small Breasts!

    Hey Fans!

    With or without that extra “oomph,” we find that smaller-busted and petite woman are sexy and feminine! After all, having self-confidence and making the most of what you’ve got is what makes them most beautiful. That’s why The Little Bra Company made a list of 5 reasons why you should LOVE your small breasts!

    #1: There are a lot more fashionable options out there that fit women with smaller breasts. For example, you can wear something really low-cut without revealing too much. However, if there is ever an outfit that you can’t quite fill out properly, you’ve always got The Little Bra Company here to help!

    #2: Smaller breasts stay perkier for longer. Women with larger breasts tend to sag sooner due to that darned thing called gravity. When I was a teenager, I longed for my breasts to grow into the C and D cup bras many of my friends were already wearing. However, my good friend’s mother reassured. She told me that when we got older, the girls I envied would be the ones who wished they had my smaller breasts because theirs would have already gone downhill. It’s true, mothers are always right!

    #3: Exercise is a lot easier for women with smaller breasts, especially if you have a good looking supportive bra like The Little Bra Company’s “Elizabeth” bra. Without larger breasts in the way of sprints and chatarangas, there’s really no excuse why we shouldn’t get active.

    #4: The Little Bra Company! Made just for smaller-proportioned women, The Little Bra Company has developed an entire intimate apparel wardrobe that is stylish, functional, and comfortable. If you are a size:
    28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38 A
    28, 30, 32, 34, 36 B
    28, 30, 32, 34 C
    …it’s your’ lucky day! We’ve got all kinds of bra styles you’ll be sure to love!

    #5: You have less risk for back problems. Some women suffer severe pain, deteriorating posture, and are at risk for spinal deformity and other repetitive stress injuries to the shoulders and upper extremities due to their proportionately large breasts. Although you have less risk for back problems, keep your breasts healthy with monthly breast self-exams. It’s easy! Here’s a link on how-to for your convenience: http://www.webmd.com/breast-cancer/guide/breast-self-exam

    Big or small, breasts are awesome! No matter what size you are, your breasts are an important part of your body, mind and spirit. Therefore, keep them perky and dressed with the right-fitting bra.

  • The Little Bra Company’s Neckline Guide!

    We understand that all these different bra styles can be a bit overwhelming to choose from. There are full-cups, demi-cups, bustiers , halternecks, multiways, push-up bras, wireless bras, and strapless bras.

  • Boosting Your Bustline

    Let’s face it, our breasts are one of the most sensual –looking part of our bodies, and for those who have “less” to work with, It can be a challenge to make them look as full and lifted as we may want them to. We know cleavage is not for every occasion or for every woman, but when you do want it, here are some helpful tips on how to enhance your smaller bust.

    Bras
    The Little Bra Company’s small bras were made especially for smaller-chested women and women with petite frames. Our sizes range from 28-38A, 28-36B, and 28-34C. If you are looking for the maximum in lift and cleavage, our Isis bra is by far the best choice for your little wardrobe. Our Isis bra is rated the 5 out of 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.

    To purchase Isis, or any of our other small bras from The Little Bra Company, please visit: http://www.thelittlebracompany.com/

    Make-up
    For this trick, you will need a bronzer or a foundation a few shades darker than your natural skin tone. Simply use your bronzer or foundation and shade the area where your breasts curve. Darkening this impression will create the illusion of higher cleavage and larger breasts.

    Good Posture
    Hold your head up, push your chest forward, roll your shoulders back, and keep your spine straight. A good posture will make your breasts look fuller and perkier. It will also make you look taller and even a few pounds slimmer!

    A Detailed Neckline
    Tops or dresses with lace ruffles, sequins, or any other type of embellishment along the neckline will give your breasts a visual boost. But be careful, if the details are too large, they will overpower your cleavage.

    With or without a boost, we find that smaller-busted and petite woman are sexy! Just look at Kate Hudson, Kiera Knightley, and Natalie Portman. After all, their inner confidence and ability to make the most of what they’ve got, is what makes them most beautiful.

  • 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/

  • 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!”®
