Pretty lingerie can make you feel powerful, sexy and glamorous, even if you have nobody to show. Whether you don a lacy bra and panties for your other half, or just to give you a confidence boost after a stressful day, the right fit for your breast size can make all the difference. Step away from all the DD-cup models in the "Victoria's Secret" catalog and find out what works for your small ladies.


If you want to enhance your cleavage, pick a padded bra to perk up your breasts. Wonderbras, gel bras and silicone bras all give extra oomph to petite breasts. Padded bras help make your ladies look larger under clothing and push them together to create jaw-dropping cleavage. Wear yours alone, or slip a low-cut top on over it for a sexy night out at the bar.

Demi Cup

Larger-breasted ladies have too much boobage to rock a demi cup. But as a small-breasted woman, you can wear this cute style with pride. Smaller breasts are often larger on the bottom, so the low scooping of the demi cup provide you with support in all the right places. Pick a cute demi bra in a vivid color, or choose a lacy one for a special occasion. Pair your demi bra with matching panties for a look that will wow your special someone.

Triangle Bra

Ever seen a well-endowed lady rocking a triangle bikini top at the beach? If you have, you'll know that triangle tops are not supportive enough for large-breasted ladies, nor do they provide enough coverage. But if your breasts are on the small side, the triangle bra might just be your new lingerie BFF. The cute, flimsy style lets you show off your sexiest side without you having to worry about a "nip slip." Go for a sheer one in a flimsy material that shows just a peep of nipple to keep your special someone guessing. At the beach, skip the sheer but keep the shape.


A bustier is the ultimate in sexy lingerie. It enhances your body shape while making your breasts appear larger. Pick a padded one for an extra burst. Wear your bustier at home, under a dress or even instead of a top. If you want to wear your bustier out, skip the sheer material for obvious reasons, and stick with just one color to avoid looking like a hooker. Pair it with jeans or black pants and throw a tuxedo jacket over the top. Finally, don't wear one that's too big or your ladies might decide to peek out the top when you stretch.
