BRA MEASURING GUIDE
Try our new Fit Calculator! Or follow the steps below.
Take your padded bra off. No cheating! With the measuring tape, measure around the top of your rib cage under your breasts. If you are in between a measurement round up to the nearest half inch. Ex. 26.25" round up to 26.5” or 27.75" round up to 28". Write this number down.
Now, measure around the fullest part of your breast (not too tight, not too loose). Make sure the measuring tape is level in the back. If you are in between a measurement round up to the nearest half inch. Ex. 32.25" round up to 32.5” or 33.75" round up to 34". Write this number down.

Now, you’ve got your size, but don’t stop there! Use this as a guide, and try on the bras. When trying on The Little Bra Company™ bras, please remember we are designed especially for the petite body type, but every body is still unique and may differ slightly in shape. We’ve taken this into consideration, and created a collection of bras to fit a variety of silhouettes to meet different wardrobe needs. Therefore, not every bra style will fit or flatter you the same. Check our fit tips on each style page to find more details on which style will work best for you.
And remember, although here are other push-up bras on the market, TLBC bras are designed to fit a smaller body type giving you a better fitting and more natural-looking curve...without giving up any prettiness. And, don't forget to "scoop" for cleveage!
TRUST US...AND YOUR SISTER SIZE
Therefore, when trying on The Little Bra Company© for the first time, you may feel that our bras in your current size fit more snug than other department store brands. Our petite sizing is just that, PETITE, so don't be afraid to size up. For instance, you may currently wear a 32A in a department store brand and our fit calculator suggests you wear a 30B. "What?! 30B?", you say. Well, a 32A has the same cup volume as a 30B and even a 28C! Therefore, although you may be used to wearing an A-cup this will change as your band increases or decreases. This is called sister sizing:
If the band fits, but the cup doesn't, change the cup size. However, if the band doesn't fit, but the cups do, try your Sister Size.

PANTY SIZE CHART
Our panties are cut on a petite scale, similar to our bras, so you will find that they will fit smaller than other brands in the same size. Please consider going up a size when purchasing one of our panties.

Finally the perfect wireless bra. "Lea" [L001] is similar to our popular sports bra "Elizabeth" [F006], gives a bit of shape and cleavage without the underwire. However, there's nothing sporty about the "Lea". With its double-back clasp and lightly contoured cups, "Lea" is simply feminine. This style comes in smooth microfiber or jacquard lace cups that offer a feminine touch while providing an invisible silhouette.
While most bra companies scale down based on a larger average body type, The Little Bra Company®, scales based on a petite body type. "The Little Bra" refers to both the fit and bust size. TLBC's bras are designed and cut on a smaller scale. Just like a petite pant fits a petite woman's body better, TLBC's bras fit the same way. (Note: The petite customer in the intimate apparel world is not necessarily just 5'4" and under. We have taller customers who happen to have a smaller rib cage and/or bust frame who fit our smaller bras better as well.) Therefore, 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.
At The Little Bra Company®, we categorize our bras into two different styles: wider-set and closer-set. If your breast are closer together and less than three fingers apart, you would be considered closer-set in our bras. If your breast gravitate closer to your sides and three or more fingers separates them from each other, you would look best in our wider-set styles.
Pretty but a bit too tight
I like the shape it gives me and that there is no underwire, which was important to me post-BC surgery. The fabric is pretty, too, and unlike a lot of wireless bras, it doesn't look like a sports bra. However, despite wearing a 30C comfortably in other styles, this one feels too tight by halfway through the day, so that I can't wait to take it off after work. Maybe go a band size up?
Such a comfy model! But it seems like they changed the fabric colour
Lovely piece - i had one already and the strap broke in under a year (no worries as I wore it daily) so I decided to buy 2 more... lovely as always but it seems like they changed the colour of fabric they used... this time it's more peachy and less nude which was a disappointment.
Great, comfortable bra
Really love this for everyday. It is slightly padded (not a lot) and I love how comfortable it is. Will probably repurchase in the black soon.
odd shape in the cups
I was super excited about a nice, simple wire free bra! the nude jaquard lace is gorgeous and the black microfiber is super smooth. good support, good push-up, while having little padding and no wires. sadly the cups are small and have an odd shape to them. I tried 4 different sizes to try to get it right but every size I tried still cut my cleavage in half! 28C seemed best in the black, the cup width wasn't as wide as the 30B which caused some odd gapping at the top (while also cutting my cleavage in half). The nude also is made of a thicker/harder fabric and the seams dug into my skin as well as my cleavage which was not comfortable. The black had a very loose band! It rode up a lot but it also just has a really thin, smooth band that runs looser (the nude is still loose but has harder seems that help to hold it in place). the 30 band was too large for me in the black and rode up too much but the 28 looked tight. I couldn't figure out why the shape of the cups just wouldn't work on me. It seems well made, besides the odd shape in the cups. I guess it just is not for me.
Good but not Great
I was looking for an every day bra that wasn't super padded and wouldn't show beneath shirts (e.g. anything frilly/lacy), so I purchased the Lea in black. Overall, what you see is what you get. It's just a plain black bra, so I bought it for function rather than fashion. However, this is the third bra I've purchased from the LBC, the other two being the Yvonne in black and pink, and it doesn't fit as well as the Yvonne style. According to the fitting guide I'm a 30B and that's what I bought for both Lea and Yvonne. While Yvonne fit me like a glove, Lea ended up being slightly too tight. I'm okay with that since the band will stretch out a bit with wear, but it wasn't exactly true to size. In addition, the right strap keeps slipping down my shoulder. However, every non-LBC bra I've ever owned has never fit my right shoulder (for whatever reason my right shoulder slopes significantly more than my left, so bra straps just slide off). I just make them work by just crossing the straps in the back so they stay on and that's what I did with Lea. The Yvonne style stays on my shoulders without me having to make any adjustments to the straps though, and for that reason I've decided to just make the Yvonne my new everyday bra rather than the Lea. Although I've said mostly negative things about the Lea, it's still a nice bra. It's just not my favorite. I will happily wear this in my bra rotation, but when it eventually breaks down and becomes unwearable I will not repurchase it.
