I apologize if this has been mentioned in the boards before, but I have a really small chest (34 AA-A) and I have a lot of trouble finding bras that fit with no gapping. I really like bralettes for that reason. I want to get some new lingerie for my honeymoon and wondered if there are any other small chested brides with recommendations.
I like some I’ve seen at Herroom.com, and some of the bras have reviews which is nice. I’ve looked at aalingerie as well but I’m trying to stay pretty affordable and buy 3-4 different sets (bras & matching panties or nighties/slips). I’ve also been looking for a good strapless bra for a while. I don’t like to have much padding in my bras at all, it’s way too unnatural on me.

Missoni? They’re an italian company and all their stuff seems to be really tiny to me. Granted, I’m 5’11".
I’d say go with any European companies. FigLeaves.com sells a TON of stuff, from the smallest sizes to the largest. Their customer service is really great, too, but since it’s based in the UK, stuff takes awhile to arrive (i’ve been wiating over a week for 2 swimsuits) so keep that in mind!

how about a brasmyth or local lingerie store (not VS)? they should have a wide range of products, some of which fit smaller sizes better than the run-of-mill items? i’m not sure what the asian community is like in AL but asian girls tend to be less endowed – there might be some stores that target them which have products that meet your needs?

Missoni is expensive (at least I thought so).
Are you looking for something with or without wire? VS has some cute things and runs down to a 32 A. I also have a small chest and it was hard to find the cute/wedding type stuff there in my size. Unfortunaly I also worked there too! They make sexy lingerie sets in certain sizes only (and it usually runs from 34B and up). They DO, however, cater to smaller women with their Intimissimi collection (I love it!).
Intimissimi is an Italian collection, and overall runs smaller. http://www.intimissimi.it/
Depending on your city they might carry it in the store (we did), but you can also order it off of the VS Web site. Most of it is affordable and very classy.
If you’re looking for something else maybe you could try this site, it looks good. http://www.lulalu.com/search.asp?mode=SubCategory&SubCatID=5

I was just going to add in, if you want to check out Victoria’s Secret they have a really sexy/cute bralettes out right now. It’s from their Sexy Little Things line and there have a matching thong. Also it comes it a lot of different colors.
There is the link to it. I hope it works lol.

I’m the same size and face the same problems and it’s really frustrating. Usually I just deal with the gapping because it’s so hard to find bras that fit and at a reasonable price. The best bras I’ve ever found are by Wacoal (I believe they carry them in both Macy’s and Dillards). They are my absolute favorite! They have 32 and 34AA and they are the only brand I’ve ever found to completely fit. They are a bit pricey though, usually around $50, but I think it’s worth it to invest in 1 or 2 really good bras. If you shop around regularly you can find them on sale for maybe $30 or so.

I’m sorry did someone mention a brasmith? I never knew there was such a thing, can anyone elaborate?

A bra fitting specialist. There are stores in LA and NY who specialize in bra fitting. And we’re not talking about VS and Nordstrom’s fitters.

Oh. Sad face. I got my hopes up thinking this meant someone that made you a custom bra. Oh well.
