  1. Hi, I have a small chest (between a 34-36b/c cup) and its hard for me to find a bra that fits comfortably.

    The padded styles are too padded and the non padded ones, well we all no what happens when you're feeling cold.

    So I was wondering, I have found a bra thats unpadded and doesn't go on bra size just dress size that fits comfortably but now I want one with a tiny bit of padding that won't show others when I'm feeling cold.

    Also do you think a small chest is better au natural or slightly padded?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
     
  2. I like a slightly padded bra due to the "cold" issue and because I feel it gives me a better contour. My favorite is by Gap body. I wont go for a really padded one because I have big bazongas but I think a slightly padded one flatters everyone.
     
  3. Have you tried the walcoal petite line? They have some lined bras that aren't really padded. I like those the best (the lined, not padded kinds).
     
  4. I really like the Chantelle Rive Gauche T-Shirt Bra. It is lightly padded, so nothing shows when it is cold, but it is no where close to a push-up. It is also really pretty. I wear a 36B in this.

    My bras range from unpadded to push-ups so I usually go by what looks best with my top.
     
  5. Gab body has a lot of bras that are slightly padded and not over the top. I'm a 34B and personally like Victoria's Secret "very sexy" bra. It's a push up with a little bit of padding.
     
  6. I'm a 34B as well and I have a couple of unlined bras and I never wear them, I hate them. I prefer some lining/light padding most of the time, and a few push up bras.. for special occasion!
     
  7. I think the lightly padded is the best for all sizes, nipples won't show and it gives a nicer shape than no padding/molding. Bras that are too padded don't look realistic, especially if you don't wear that bra everyday b/c then you will appear to be vastly different sizes.
     
  8. Lightly padded for me.
     
  9. I know I'm a 36b and hate all that padding that come with the bras
     
  10. I find a good secure fit and lightly lined cup are ideal! I wear the tightest band I can which is a 30, well I did the whole measurement thing and I came up with a 30 D years ago. I found my perfect bra in Hawaii around that time and I've pretty much only used them for 9 years now. Bradelis NY is the brand and finally a couple of years ago I found an online retailer for them, www.ripplu.com, they just have the the best design IMHO and I always get compliments, there is only lining in their bras (though some do come with optional inserts which I remove), they do all the work without the padding and I can't say enough about them.
     
  11. Lightly padded. I find LiZ bras to be super comfortable and provide just enough padding.

    I buy them at local boutiques but Tobi sells them online as well.
     
  12. Thank you for all your replies. It doesn't matter where I get measured they always measure me bigger than I am. I know this because my back is bigger than my front and when I wear the bra I don't fill it out at the top, and sometimes the bra is so big I don't fill out the bottom and thats a b cup. Any advice on how to get measured properly?
