How to make small breasts look bigger


There’s nothing wrong with having small breasts! In fact, having small breasts is a lot of fun! They won’t sag when your thirty, you can work out without a supportive bra, and you can wear whatever bikini you want!
But sometimes you just want a little more va-va-voom. :)
Now, we can’t turn anthills into mountains, but we can definitely give you some tips on how to make your small breasts look bigger.

  • The bra! It’s all about the bra. First of all, you need a bra that fits you perfectly. The worst mistake you can make is wearing a bra that's too big. If you have a hard time finding lingerie that fits your small breasts, check out LuLaLu - they specialize in small cups!
  • Your clothing! You can easily 'create' more curves visually by wearing the right tops. It's best to wear tops with horizontal stripes instead of vertical ones, for example. Here's a good blog post I wrote with a lot more fashion tips for small breasts.
  • Your mom was right: Stand up straight!
  • If you want to give your boobies a little va-va-voom, try a good push-up or padded bra - they will push your boobies up and create some cleavage. I personally like to keep things 'real' but if you are truly desperate, you can always try a good pair of inserts (you can get them at most retailers) You can choose air or gel inserts - all you do is you insert them in your bra, and voilà: you added a cup size!
  • Wear two bras. Yes, two bras over each other.
  • Cross your bra straps on your back- this will lift your breasts up and create cleavage, and so your breasts will appear larger.
  • Tops that make small breasts look bigger: wear shirts/tops with patterns, ruffles or pockets - they will make your chest look fuller.
  • And most importantly: BE CONFIDENT. The best accessory you can have is confidence! You have nothing to be ashamed of, so show off what you've got! Be proud.

    Amazing! Worked like a charm!

    I am sharing this because it is something i did not expect…i bought a beautiful backless dress but wanted to still wear a bra of some type. i ended up getting something called a NuBra (bought mine at Gap but they do sell them other places) i wasnt expecting to be able to create any type of cleavage with it but surprisingly if you place the cups correctly and attach them in the middle youll be pleasantly surprised! many of my girlfriends even commented me that my boobs looked great in the dress! great product, check it out!

    If you want to be surprised and amazed try this push up bra. I had heard about it a lot, but when I actually got it in the mail I could not believe how much extra cleavage it gave me. It looks super natural and it’s very comfortable.

    But I’m 12, so maybe it will grow a little bit.

    Don’t worry breasts dont usually catch a growth spurt till about 16 so you’ll definitely get some and don’t rush it!!!

    Anyone who is still young (like below 14) and has quite small boobs don’t worry hahaa! Especially some of you complaining that your 13 and only have 36a…
    I am nearly 16 and my boobs are size 30AA.
    think yourself lucky.

    Haha same I’m 16 and have 32AA but to be perfectly honest I don’t need to wear a bra because there is nothing there! But to be honest I learn to live with it :) most of us with small boobs have other assets for example we’re usually skinnier and of course we’re much prettier ;) haha but from experience, people don’t care that much about the size of your breasts, its about the size of your personality! xx

    Im 18 and a doenst even fill 34 A ive waited and waited to “get older” and “gave them time ” and Ill thats really happen is I gave my breast a new name/label, something I keep secret. I dont think any woman should ever feel embarassed about going topless but I kow I do and I feel like a young child who has just started the dating game and thats: shy, worried, want to bet least sexually discussed or felt part of my body. And its sad but true people like boobs lots of big breast not just men just women like breasts too… But to mutate your already unique beautiful body which i believe is your temple just to show it ‘give it up” or make it your career to look like a snanky bimbo because theys view of breast men are visual they see boobs they get the same feeling when a guy does romanic, EXCITED!, it not the person waering the are to go threw all the pain and cost and then redone later about it yes I feel Pretty but doesnt every girl/little lady/woman wanna feel sexy too? I feel this is a rather difficult and stressful to change my top in front of people just i know my bowfriend loves me and my breast and still touches and caress them the same he never leaves them out andladys did you know lots of stimulation helps growth so play with your itty bitty tittys accept yourself confidence is a good moral key

    I had fairly size prior to having my two kids but lost well over cup size and now I’m 34A. I’m uneasy about my size because I see how guys look at women with bigger breast. I looked into getting bigger ones but I’m engaged to man who loves my size. He has been with women who had big and hugh breast and loves a women with smaller breast.

    Ok well here’s a few things y’all can do …massages your breasts every night with baby oil rub around and up and down… Eat papaya … There’s is a compound but it tastes pretty nasty add one cup of water a teaspon of salt and teaspoon of olive oil and a half a teaspoon of sugar…. Drink it it’s really gross though … Eat protein shakes in the mornings .. Eat oranges,Rosemary if have any other questions just ask(:

    So, why do we need to make small breasts look bigger? Why not just be proud of what you have?

  23. Posted June 22, 2010 at 9:22 am | Permalink

    I would definitely agree, alot of women just don’t know their correct sizes. I’ve watched this video and was amazed that bra makes alot of difference in women’s breast –>

    I dont see the problem with small boobs, im 20 with a child and only a 34b, im very tall and a size six, this isnt due to poor diet im just naturally really skinny and slim, as much as I hate it when I wear low cut tops or tight dresses and feel like a kid, I then think to myself, but I look so much better when im in my bikini than bigger women, and triangle bras are a god send! There not padded so wont add anything but so delicate and pretty! Id invest in a nice underwear set, but if your under 16 you really shouldnt be wanting to make your boobs look bigger, send out all the wrong impressions, a guy will like you for you and not your boobs at the end of the day :)

I havent grown much since i was 14…i have tried multiple bras but they sort of dig into my skin..might be because i have only used sports bras since my 1st growth when i was 12 (curvier then most girls,so cant find a good bra that will fit!!) any advice?? Will they grow? Thanks in advance ladies!(:

      Hi! I understand where you’re coming from dear – I gave up having bigger breasts when I was about 20 years old. I decided there was more to live for than having big boobs. Small breasts have A LOT of advantages, but I know that’s not what you want to hear. You just want to have cleavage :) The tips I gave you in the above post can help flatter a small chest – but you know what? Nothing is as attractive as confidence! Be proud of your body, and others will admire you too!! :-)

      Hey Nana!
      Sure, putting tissues in your bra will give you a fuller appearance. You do want to be careful with your breasts looking fake :)
      In the end, it all comes down to confidence. It might be hard to accept, but if you love yourself first, others will follow! So, chin up (or chest out?!) and be proud of yourself!

    No matter how big your boobies – or how small – people will except you for you. Just go around being confident, if you don’t you will look self conscious and others will see that in you and will bully you. I am a 32b and i will be 16 in a few months. Big boobs run in my family…but usually the women are bigger and have more excess fat. However like my dad, I am slim and very fit and athletic. I am not anorexic I am 98.7 lbs and am 5’3. At times though I need a more appealing cleavage, so as to say I do not look like a child in a more mature outfit. In that case I put a bra that is one of my smallest on first and a slightly larger bra on top, now this is optional, get a pair of socks(depending how big you want your boobies – cut off socks, field hocky socks, etc), and on top of the smaller bra, under the bigger bra, stuff them, make sure you make your boobies look natural and they arent lumpy. And if you really want to make those boobies go pow wow wow, get a safety pin and put both set of bra straps in the form of an x, and then hook them together. YOur boobies will be bulging, and if you want them to be very attractive then get a light bronzer(you dont want them to be very tan, cuz that will look fake) and put them on the curves of your boobs. Anyway, your boobs may be small or big, learn to love them. Who knows they may turn out exactly the way you want them. Hope this helped.
