Today is 11-11-11!
Here’s a little trivia for today; what is the term used to describe a date that can be read the same way from the right or left direction?
Today is 11-11-11!
On Thanksgiving Day, many people take time out to give thanks for what they have. Veterans Day is a day to give thanks for the people who have fought for what we have. The Little Bra Company would like to thank all the men and women of the military for keeping us safe and free.
The Little Bra Company hopes everyone enjoys today with their friends, family, and loved ones.

It’s that time of year when staying warm is an essential part of your wardrobe. Even though the weather is cooling down, you can still look hot! The Little Bra Company would like to share a few winter fashion tips to help you petite ladies stay warm and sexy throughout the next few months.
Invest in 1 or 2 sturdy, but fashionable, winter coats. Remember, mustard hues and color blocks are in this season.
Wear gloves, ladies! Soft, smooth hands are always stylish, so protect your hands from the harsh winter winds.
If you are indoors, layering your clothing is a fashionable way you can stay warm. Wear a tank top or camisole under your long-sleeve shirt. When rocking a t-shirt, The Little Bra Company recommends the Angela bra for a smooth silhouette.
Buy a fashionable, but versatile hat. Neutral colors are always best because they will match most of your outfits.
When wearing a skirt or dress, pair your outfit with some double-knit leggings. This will make you look more “climate appropriate” and protect your legs.
Stock up on scarves! Since scarves are fairly in expensive, you can buy a few without bending your budget. Choose from a variety of materials, styles, and colors to show your personality.
Save your flip-flops and strappy shoes for the summer. During the cold months, wear shoes that cover you more to stay warmer; such as boots. But be careful, some boots will shrink a petite woman’s frame, so try them on before purchasing.
These looks are very easy to achieve, once you get the hang of it. So throw out those old winter sweaters and stay stylish throughout the coldest part of the year.
A few weeks ago The Little Bra Company shared a blog on the importance of wearing a proper fitting
bra. Today we wanted to show you petite gals exactly how scary an ill-fitting bra looks and show you
how The Little Bra Company can save your small breasts from these bra horror stories.
Wearing a dire-fitting push-up bra can cause your breasts to be pushed too high, creating a flat top. If
you need a flattering push-up bra to save you from “The Shelf,” Isis will save you! Isis has maximum
push-up, demi-contoured cups to offer petite figures a boosted bustline.
When a bra moves around freely “The Sagging” will come shortly after. If your bra does not support
your small breasts throughout the sagging, Mercedes is here for you! Mercedes is a sophisticated petite
demi push-up bra with contoured smooth-cups for added lift and support, and a bit of lace for a chic
peek of pretty.
If your bra is transforming your small breasts into a “Quadraboob,” this may be because the cups are
too small. Have no fear, Angela, The Little Bra Company’s best-selling T-shirt bra, is here to rescue you!
Angela may be a small bra, but it is especially designed to contour and help give shape to smaller breasts
with minimal padding. Instead of lines and bulges in all the wrong places, Angela provides a smooth
silhouette under all your favorite tops, including deep v-necks.
These spooky photos are part of Canadian lingerie boutique, “The Booby Trap’s” latest ad campaign.
Hurry! Run to your nearest bra retailer to find the right fit…. before the booby traps get you!
Even though breast cancer awareness month has come to an end, don’t forget to keep fighting for the cause. Last year over 200,000 cases of the disease had been diagnosed and statistics show that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime. I’m sure all of us know women – friends or family members -who have had to endure the disease at some point in their life.
The Little Bra Company would like to mention a few strong women in the public eye who have opened up about their personal experience with breast cancer.
A few weeks ago E! News host Giuliana Rancic announced that she has breast cancer. During her third in vitro fertilization attempt, Giuliana was informed of the cancer via mammogram. She has undergone removal of several lymph nodes and a double lumpectomy. If the cancer spreads Giuliana will undergo radiation therapy. The Little Bra Company is rooting for you Giuliana!
Sheryl Crow was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006. Thanks to early detection, the singer underwent a minimally invasive surgery and several weeks of radiation therapy. Sheryl is now breast cancer free and focuses on spreading the message of early detection.
Elizabeth Edwards had noticed a lump in her breast during her husband, John Edwards’, vice presidential campaign and was diagnosed with breast cancer just hours after the election had been conceded. Elizabeth battled the disease on and off until she passed away in December 2010. Women remember Elizabeth as a strong woman, fighter, and breast cancer awareness advocate.
Giuliana Rancic, Sheryl Crow, and Elizabeth Edwards are just a few of the millions of women who have had to fight breast cancer. If you know anyone who’s life have been threatened by breast cancer feel free to mention their names in this post so we can all honor their strength and integrity.
The leaves are falling, a chilly breeze is blowing, and the holidays are coming up; you know what that
means? It’s time to sport your 2011 Fall and Winter Trends! The Little Bra Company wants to fill you
petite fashionistas in on the most popular trends featured in designers’ latest collections.
What is sexier than the androgynous ensemble that is the Women’s Tuxedo? This classic trend has
been popping in and out of designers’ Fall and Winter collections for decades. For a dressed-down and
comfortable tuxedo look, pair your jacket with a simple white t-shirt. Then, add the flatter factor by
wearing a small t-shirt bra from The Little Bra Company underneath it all. The Angela bra and Yvonne
bra are perfect options, because of their smooth and seamless look.
Since summer has come to an end, the bright, vibrant colors aren’t very popular anymore. Designers
are using burnt colors. Mustard seems to be a favorite because you see it everywhere; from the high-
end boutiques to your local department stores.
You would think that because the weather is cooling down your chest should be covered up, right? Well
think again…designers like Gucci and J. Mendel are presenting deep plunging necklines in their newest
collections. The Little Bra Company’s bestselling Lucia bra is perfect for all you petite women brave
enough to rock this trend!
Since color blocking is in right now, you may feel like your ensemble feels a little simple. Wear a scarf
with unique patterns or designs to give your outfit that extra kick. If scarves aren’t really your thing, use
jewelry--big cluncky necklaces or earrings will make a big statement.
If you gals have any 2011 Fall and Winter fashion trends do not hesitate to share them!
It’s 7:30PM. After a long hard day of work most women enjoy kicking their heels off, lying back, and relaxing.

How conscious are you of breast cancer? Are you aware of the causes of breast cancer?
Do you know how to separate fact from fiction?
As women, I’m sure we have all heard the numerous causes of breast cancer. Most women do not realize that many of the things they have been told have not been validated by science.
The Little Bra Company wanted to shine the light on breast cancer awareness by busting the most popular myths.
• Underwire bras cause cancer because the wire constricts the breasts and cause toxins to build up in breast tissue.
-This is false. Studies show there is absolutely no link to the bra underwire causing breast cancer. Think about it; if it were true, there would be a lot more women with breast cancer years ago when tight corsets were in fashion.
• Antiperspirants cause breast cancer because they prevent toxins from leaving your body. The toxins then travel down the breasts.
-This is false. Antiperspirants do not prevent toxins from leaving the body; they eliminate the toxins all together.
• Drinking bottled water can cause breast cancer because the dioxin used to make the bottle leaks into the water.
-This is false. There is no dioxin in plastic water bottles.
• Mammograms cause breast cancer because the test requires the use of radiation.
-This is false. Yes, radiation is used when conducting a mammogram, but the amount is extremely small. The amount of radiation used in a mammogram is the same a woman receives by simply being exposed to the environment.
• Family history is the only way a woman can get breast cancer.[Source: http://www.cbsnews.com/2300-204_162-10009642.html?tag=page ]
-This is false. Over 80% of breast cancer cases arise sporadically. That is why it is important for women to have regular check-ups.
Now that we’ve busted some of the breast cancer causing myths, The Little Bra Company wants to give you some tips on how you can to prevent breast cancer.
• Schedule regular mammograms and clinical exams.
• Get to know your breasts and inform your doctor if you notice any questionable changes.
• Adopt a healthy diet and physical activity.
• Control your weight; try not to let it fluctuate.
• Do not smoke and limit your alcohol intake.
Share these prevention tips with family, friends, and loved ones.
If you have any myths to bust do not hesitate to share them! :)

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.
