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.
|TLBC PANTY SIZE||HIP SIZE (INCHES)|
The Little Bra Company’s bestselling bra is the “Lucia.” It gives maximum effect with just a little padding. The contoured padding gives you a natural curve while the closer-set cups ensure enhanced cleavage.
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.
This bra is very flattering
The bra is beautiful, and the cup fits better than any other bra I've ever had. I used the fit calculator and also went to a boutique that sells LBC bras where my size was confirmed. The lady at the shop said it feet perfectly, but the band runs tight, so I found "perfectly" to be somewhat uncomfortable. I bought it anyway, and then the trouble started: a few minutes into wearing I noticed irritation by the edges of the band. I don't know why I didn't notice this trying it on at the store, but I really did at home! I put cotton cloth between the band and my skin, which helped some, but I don't know if I'll wear it again. I'd already removed the tags, so I can't return it. :/
The Lucia is so-so
I tried different colors in the lucia style but I was dissapointed to find that some had way more coverage / less coverage than others! Some had way less padding/ more padding than others! Some had way too tight thin bands, others in the exact same band size were just or almost loose! The band is better on the tighter size for me because the straps on the lucia bra are very long! For a petite bra I was suprised how long they are. I am very petite (5 ft. and 85 lbs. and inbetween a 30B/28C-30A/28B due to recent weight loose) and the straps are longer on this style than any other TLBC style I have tried. The overly tight band is annoying but also helps the bra stay up! However its impossible to know how the Lucia will fit because the design varies so greatly! I do wish the straps weren't so long though. The lace is pretty and overlays almost flat. The band is power mesh, its thin and tight.. However like I said this bra varies greatly in padding width, band size, and coverage.. The last lucia i tried was Signature Black! I wanted to love her but she had way too much coverage in comparison to the others, and about 2/5 padding so it just didn't do much for my chest. Made my small girls look even smaller (I also prefer Demis and the black lace fit full coverage). So i sent her back for a return. All in all this bra is alright.. depending on which style you get! I am very Exciting to try Christina! She seems like a very well made, prettier, better designed Lucia bra!
Beautiful but didn’t fit
I used the fit calculator to find my size and was so excited when it arrived-it was beautiful! Unfortunately the band was so small it was suffocating. I sent it back and ordered the sister size. The band fit well, but the cups gapped in front. I was so disappointed to return but the fit just didn’t work for me.
At last a great bra!
I've just discovered this brand after years of wearing bras that are ill-fitting and/or ****. I gather that this model is a staple; please keep making it. It's comfortable and pretty and a great product all-round. I selected a size using the size chart on the website and the fit is excellent. The chart gave me a 32 band which would normally be a bit loose on me, so the advice about going up from your normal generic size is sound.
