Bra Fitter Pat's guide to front closure bras for small breasts.
Pat knows finding a supportive bra for small boobs shouldn't be hard when armed with the right information.

With bras for big boobs absolutely booming in the lingerie industry it’s  getting harder to find a well made  supportive bra for small boobs. Add to the the complexity of hunting down front closure bras for small breasts, it’s no wonder why you have landed on this blog. 

My passion for front closure bras stemmed from my retail experience that has us constantly sending women to the internet to find front closure bras. So this article is a summary of my favourite well made supportive front closure bras for small breasts

Why Front Clasp bras for small busts are hard to find in stores?

With Front Closure Bras making up such a small portion of total lingerie sales (my estimate would be that it is less than 0.5% of all sales), it doesn’t make sense of retail stores to carry a big range of these bras thats barely sell. This is always a big issue in lingerie because you really need a range of size and style options in any given category in order to appeal to womens varied preferences and size requirements. 

This is why front closure bras for small breasts are hard to find in retail stores. My experience is that most front closure bras styles stocked in stores will cater to post surgical or are bras for seniors, which can be another frustration if you don’t fit that demographic. 

Bra sizes - what are considered small breasts?

For the sake of this article I am classifying A cup, B cup and C cup boobs as small breasts. This also includes AA cup of course. 

It’s worth trying to determine your correct bra size before ordering anything online. Here’s a guide on How to measure your bra size

It’s also important to know that most women will inherently think they are one or two cup sizes small then they actually are (I am sure all bra fitters on the planet will agree with that statement). If you think you are an A cup you can check this by measuring around your ribcage and then measuring around your bust (here’s how)  if your bust measurement is 1″ bigger than yes you are an A cup. If it’s 2″ bigger than you’re probably a B cup, 3″ is a C cup and so on…  

I just find that most women who think they are an A cup are actually more in the B-C cup category. So be sure to check using your measurements.

Under Armour Balance Eclipse Zip Sports Bra Review

A seriously strong high impact bra that isn’t a nightmare to get on and off – yes, it does exist!  With lightly moulded cups that add to the firm feel of the bra and also help with modesty. The tip with this style is that while it is easy to get on compared to most sports bras, you do still need it to be very compressive so it shouldn’t be so easy that it doesn’t take any muscle to pull the front together.

Do small breasted women need underwire bras?

No. Because in actual fact, no women *need* underwire. Underwire is in a bra to provide a round shape, it’s not there for “support”. This is why no woman really needs underwire. 

In saying that, a lot of bigger busted ladies choose underwire to provide a great separation for their large breasts. This isn’t such an issue for smaller breasted women, so there are even less benefits to underwire bras for small busted ladies.
