I don’t consider myself to have small boobs, but when it comes to bridal undergarments, I am. I wear a 42D/44C typically. In bustiers, I’m a B cup and even some Bs are big. It’a difficult to find in shops. One specialty store carried one style, but I didn’t like it. The other specialty store said their brands don’t go smaller than a C and they didn’t have any Cs in stock. So, I ordered one online. The brand is Dominique, which I’ve worn and enjoyed before. The style number is 8949.  It is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, so I haven’t tried it yet and can’t review it. I will update you this weekend with a review. Here’s the link in case you are interested:

Good luck.

I am plus size and I I wear a 40B. I eneded up getting a corset from DB and my seamsress will add some bra padding to my dress to give me a more fuller look. I will also be putting in some of those breast enhancment thingys (like chicken cutlets haha). The corset really smooths the tummy area and flattens the belly and surprsingly is comfortable!

I also just wanted add while I thought of it that if you cannot find the right size cup and it’s too big, you can always have a seamstress sew the cups smaller. I’ve had that done when in a pinch.

talia.teresa:  Update – I really liked the Dominque 8949.  Easily the best the bustier bra I’ve worn.  The cups were generally the right size.  They stuck out a little at the sides, but I am hoping that my dress will push them in, or I will ask the seamstress to fix it when I go for my fitting.  Good luck in your search.  I would appreciate a database for well-performing items for complicated sizes.  😉

My mom is in a 42B and for my wedding she wore a bustier from David’s Bridal with no problem at all. She just added those chicken cutlets in there to give her a bit more oomph and rocked it.
