12 Comfortable & Pretty Bras For Small Chests

With all the bras that exist in the underwear world, you’d think that it would be easy as pie to find pretty and comfortable bras. You’d be wrong. This is especially true when it comes to finding the best comfortable and pretty bras for small chests. Shopping for bras for small chests is no easy task. Even when your standards are reasonable (just pretty and comfortable), it can be a headache. You can always forgo the entire complicated ritual of bra shopping, or just hone in on what you really want.

By pretty, do you mean patterned? Or maybe pretty for you is a simple bra in a bright color. Then, think about what makes a bra comfortable for you. Are you partial to a cotton-soft bralette? If you’ve felt the stab of a pokey underwire, you’ll probably want to try a wire-free bra, or even a lacy soft bra. Bras that lift and shape small chests are also something to consider. As a woman on the smaller side, I know I like some padding, but not so much that it’s uncomfortable. That’s when I grab a wire-free contour bra. See, it’s not so difficult to find comfortable and pretty bras for small chests, but if you need a place to start, here are 12 of my favorites.
