Hi ladies! I recently saw a thread about where to shop for tiny bras and someone mentioned aerie. I looked at they have some great styles and the prices are about what I would pay for my regular VS bras. I usually wear a 34A in the pink line (I have never been able to find a regular non-pink VS bra that fits well and even in the pink line it differs from style to style) and it seems like the demi/balconette bras fit best since I really don’t have any need for a full cup with my itty bitty titty’s anyway.. So I am planning on starting with one or two aerie styles in two size combos since they have such a good return policy and I don’t live anywhere near a real store (plus they are currently on sale!). But which ones?? Maybe you small busted aerie shoppers can help me out with your experience/favorites??
Charley- I like the styles, but the cups look huge! Also, me and padding usually ends up badly (makes the fit worse or makes me look like I had a overnight boob job)
Blakely- the older styles look similar to my current VS bras but the new ones again have large looking cups
Hannah- looks the most promising but only in the multi-way bras, the others have much too large cups
Emma- also looks similar to my VS bra, but only in the old styles the new ones look too large. But I’m unusure of the padding element here (me & pushup just is pointless unless I want to duct tape my boobs together)
Any other ones I’m missing? I would prefer something that can go to racerback, but it’s not a necessity.

I haven’t tried aerie yet and have been recommend to VS, BUT the ones I currently have are actually from the Junior’s department at Kohl’s They’re a 36A and sadly I can barely fill it but they are the “t-shirt” style and were on sale 2/$15 for neutral colors and I think $15 for colored/lace ones. I cannot stand a lot of padding because I know how much (…er…little) boob I have so why bother faking it? lol Gotta embrace being part of the itty bitty titty committee Oh, I think the may convert to a racerback…there is a small clip/hook looking thing on one of the straps but I haven’t tried it out yet.
I hope this helps 🙂 And good luck! It’s one of the most frustrating tasks to do!

You should check out Marshalls and TJ Maxx stores, they often have Aerie bras for like $9 and Calvin Klein for $12. The Calvin Klein ones are unpadded and super comfy.

yumcheez: no marshalls but we just got a TJ Maxx- thanks!!! I can’t do totally unpadded without looking like a little boy though/mosquito bites, I need at least a light padding…

I posted the other thread, so I’m posting to follow here as well. I could use all the help/suggestions I can get! I’m going to go look at a few places this weekend before I attempt to buy online. I’m nervous they won’t fit nicely if I buy online.

MrsCallalily: Ya, I wish I could try them on at the store, but I live 5 hours away from any real shopping other than ross/kohls/TJ Maxx…. =(
I just try to look for places with no question asked returns and order a few ranges of sizes if I’m unfamiliar with the fit so I can still “try-on” the stuff. What’s weird is that the exact same bra style & size in VS fits me differently. Last time I tried on 3 of the exact same bra/style/color/size before I found one that fit- how weird is that! The sales person didn’t know what to say!

I was measured as a 34A by VS way back in high school and for years I had a hard time finding 34As that I actually filled out. Usually the t-shirt demi bra styles were the best. Recently I discovered, after reading an article about how to properly measure your bra size (not the way VS does it), that I am actually a 32B! I thought all these years that I needed a smaller cup size, when it was actually just the band width that was the problem. I have no problem filling out 32Bs. They’re a lot more snug than my old 34As.

I friend told me about this company. These aren’t cheap but I think you’d be better off with less bras and have ones that you own are good quality and fit well.

jennie.elliott2: ya, that’s not even an option. I have heard rave reviews of them though!
SEG711: I’ve tried that too- switching up to a B and it was way worse. Literally, my boobs are smaller than my hand and I’m a petite lady so a B was still too big. I may actually be an AA but I’m refusing to acknowledge that possibility at the moment since AA’s all look like kid training bras…
