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)|
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.
Weirdly loose fitting (no matter the size), not pretty in real life
I bought the black Olivia. Despite the band being smaller than it should be, it's extremely stretchy so don't bother sizing up. I followed TLBC's size guide and the band wouldn't have been tight enough even if I had gone TWO band sizes down. Despite not needing much support because my ******* are very small, the bra is shaped so that your ******* fall out of the bottom, rather than being pushed up. I think this is due to the weird molding -- they put molding in the middle but no (or minimum) molding on the bottom -_- Also, it's not as pretty in real life, at ALL. The other two bras I got (two different Mercedes) looked the same in real life, but not this bra. It looked very weird. TLBC claims that they fixed this bra (originally a different bra) so that it's smoother, however (and you can slightly see it if you zoom in on the first picture) the fabric (especially on my left cup) had SO much fabric in one spot that it formed what looked like a puffy freaking ******. So no, it's not wearable under clothing. Also, the straps are extremely loose -- I wish TLBC would actually be consistent with their bras for once, it's not that difficult. I'm going to a different site. In the second picture, you can see the pointy fabric (if you zoom in) on the woman's right cup (leading me to assume the picture was mirrored). I know most people don't trust 1-2 star reviews often (I don't either) but you should trust me on this. The only good thing about this bra is it's fairly comfy.
Same fit as Lucia
Olivia is a great alternative to the Lucia bra. It fits the same in my opinion. I like how the mesh is smooth under T-shirts unlike the Lucia which has beautiful lace details but they tend to show up bumpy under T-shirts. The deep plunge works well with V-neck collars however if you have a scoop neck depending on how deep the scoop is, the mesh sometimes show. I removed one star only because I found the straps much too long. I had to flip the orientation so that the adjuster doesn't sit on top of my shoulders where things like bag straps would apply pressure. As the bra gets older and I run out of length to shorten the straps I will have to switch the straps to be crisscrossed at the back in order to extend the life of this bra.
Very flattering and sophisticated
Extremely happy with this bra. I bought this bra together with the Olivia panty and it's not only very comfortable. It's very flattering and sophisticated as well.
