Are your small breasts looking for a small bra?
By Pelpina Trip. "That moment when the Victoria's Secret 34A push-up bra's cup is bigger than my actual boob" - a great comment on my video about the search for bras for small breasts. If you have small boobs, and a hard time finding a bra that fits well and also looks elegantly - you're not alone! Either you can't find a bra that actually fits, or the one and only bra you kind of fit is one big pillow.
Here's another great comment I don't want you to miss:
"That frustrating/funny moment when you go shopping for a bra in a store and the only way you can get your AA boobs to fit into anything is an A push up. And they are not being pushed up, just sitting there in these pillows twice their size."
Bras that are actually made for small breasts
Yep, been there, done that. My friend Ellen had the same problem, but she took that and turned it into something wonderful: a bra line/store especially for women with small breasts. Find some pictures of LuLaLu (her store) and those bras here. Ellen recently created a wonderful video, and I just had to share it with you guys!

Do you ever try on bras at a store and you can't find a single one that fits well?
Ever afraid people can peek in your top and look straight down because your bra isn't snug enough?

The problem with most small push-up bras
Most 'magic' push-up bras have huge thick pillowy cups that make your breasts seem very unnatural (uuhh maybe because they are).
And if you're anything like me - even if all the stars align and you do somehow happen to find the right cup size, you can still practically fit a teddybear between the cups and your boobs.
Most push-up bras are just too big, bulky, and not made for small breasts on a thin frame.
Small boobs? No problem!
My sister Joseffa and I sat down for another video about this very topic. We actually recorded two videos, and I'll share the short version with you first.

Finally, a store made JUST for the naturally thin!
By Ally Fuentes.
Growing up in a naturally thin frame really isn’t easy. It wasn’t for me. It’s hard to feel comfortable in your own skin when you’re constantly being called names such as “toothpick” or “anorexic-looking”. I remember entering high school and seeing all of my friends wearing the latest trends and feeling bad about myself, because I knew I was too small to pull any of it off. I remember going into stores for juniors and feeling helpless because even the x-smalls were STILL too big, and I couldn’t fill anything out. Does any of this sound familiar?
At some point in time I began to think, why isn’t there a store for us? Why are there plus-sized stores everywhere and plus-sized sections in almost every department store but nothing for the naturally thin? And that’s when I realized something: There are stores for almost EVERY type of figure except for the naturally thin! There are stores for petite women, stores for tall women, stores for plus-sized women, etc. but there has yet to be a store made JUST for the naturally thin!
And then finally, there’s Thinbelle. Thinbelle is a store created JUST for the naturally thin. With no intentions of expanding sizes anytime soon, Thinbelle only offers XXS, XS, and S. This store was created for women like me who can’t find anything in their sizes, and want to feel comfortable in their skin! Society forgets that although being full figured can be a touchy subject, being skinny can be a touchy subject too! There are so many plus size stores, and so much support for plus sized women but no support for the naturally thin who may get taunted with words from time to time, or who are hurt by society for being "too skinny" or "anorexic looking". I wanted to shop at a store for the naturally thin, like me. A store where you don't have to worry about small's fitting like a medium, or a store where there are never extra smalls!
What is a Thinbelle and where did the name come from?
A Thinbelle is a beautiful, naturally thin woman. Us naturally thin women know what it’s like to have to deal with the name-calling and harsh comments made about our thin frames, and it’s about time that it stops. Thinbelle was created for YOU to feel special, and beautiful in your own skin without wanting to force any weight on yourself. We are thinbelle’s, not toothpicks.
