Just own it. No bra needed… goldie hawn in captain Benjamin did small boobs amazingly. X

If you're slim with small boobs, basically everything is designed for you!

If you are in proportion it looks absolutely fine. Isn't less considered more now anyway? I'm fat with small boobs (you would think some of the weight might have gone to the boobs, but no [sad face]) and it looks ridiculous.

I absolutely dont have your figure but I can tell you the things I'm jealous of you veing able to wear?

Racer backs, halter necks, dungaree/apron-style tops or dresses, spaghetti straps, backless tops with no bra or the bra that's visible being delicate and pretty.

High necks, busy prints on the top half, funky sports wear, bralettes.

Anything and have the focus on you/your overall look rather than a massive bosom taking over the whole outfit.

Echo what @Palavah says, having to negotiate requirement of sturdy undergarments (especially in summer) is the bane of my life!

I'd love to get away with very light floaty garments with tiny straps - but it's never going to happen!

I'd say definitely no v-necks, and generally not wrap-over dresses/tops. Round necks / boat necks / etc all good. Definitely avoid anything that has boob space that you don't fill!

I don't know how tall you are, but I'm similar size (though a lot older!) and also short. Fitted / tailored / stretchy shapes are good, when I was younger I definitely needed to avoid the 'dressed up in my mum's clothes' look. Anything androgynous is likely to work well, I particularly like asymmetrical zips / shapes that give interest to my top half.

I would say that the older I get, the more I appreciate my tiny boobs (even on the approved MN and leaning right forward to dangle approach I'm an AA) - I can happily still go without a bra in my 50s, and never wear anything more than a lace bralette.

Personally I think floaty garments with tiny straps tends not to be a great look esp if small / short in general - you need some but not excessive boobs for them to avoid looking like an 8 year old in her best frock!

I have similar shape and actually love v necks. Hated having small breasts when older but now I’m happy with them. I do also feel lucky that I can ‘get away’ with wearing low cut tops etc and not look v busty/have rude people talking to my chest instead of my face. And also like sleeping on my front

I could've written this post because your body type (and age!) is exactly the same as mine grin I tend to wear a lot of high-waisted jeans/pants/skirts then baggy shirts/t shirts half tucked in. Also love a bardot style top because I hate the definition in my chest bones but love my collar bones.

This! OP you sound to have an amazing figure, oh to be able to wear backless tops or spaghetti straps!

Palavah Mon 14-Jun-21 09:27:22

I thought Kate Silverton looked fantasic in this jumpsuit, for example.

Lemmings123 Mon 14-Jun-21 09:29:59

I wear lots of best tops, strappy tops with skirts or jeans, or skater dresses. I don't mind having small boobs now, it would actually feel weird to have bigger ones!

Lemmings123 Mon 14-Jun-21 09:30:15

Vest not best!

MonsterJammin Mon 14-Jun-21 09:32:08

I'm a similar size to you OP and a few years older but sometimes struggle. I understand people saying you can wear anything as you're slim but it's not that easy. The number of tops that I've tried on and they just don't work as there's no boobs there to fill the space/hold them up so they end up being far too low is ridiculous.

I avoid anything too low cut or wrap style as they just gape at the boobs. And always wear a good bra with padding - the style for the non wired comfy lounge bras is no good for me as I just look like I have no shape at all.

StarlightLady Mon 14-Jun-21 10:34:27

If l was that size, l would never wear a bra!

jennyfromtheblock22 Mon 14-Jun-21 10:57:39

I'm completely flat chested but would always wear a bra to give me a more feminine shape. So I wouldn't wear anything that I couldn't wear a bra with. I avoid all v necks as i have defined chest bones which is not a god look! I look better in anything with a high neck/polo neck/boat neck.
I wear the two sizes bigger bras.

Sadik Mon 14-Jun-21 11:00:02

Kate Silverton really doesn't have no boobs though if you see her in other pics Palavah ! Not large, but not teeny either. Mine were bigger when bf-ing and there were definitely options that looked good then which I'd never wear normally (admittedly the milk stains and clinging toddler detracted somewhat from the overall effect grin )

I was a similar size to you and a AA cup through my twenties and into my thirties. Now 52 I'm still only a B cup.

I never had any issues with being small chested. As others have said, you can wear strappy vests, halter necks etc and you don't have any worries about wearing different bras for different looks etc. I can still happily go braless and they look pretty perky. I also preferred wearing a bra to give some shape under clothes, particularly at work. The only things I used to avoid were wrap tops which made them look flattened on me.

You also have the added advantage that men don't constantly talk to your bosom smile

EllaPaella Mon 14-Jun-21 12:20:23

I am pretty flat chested and to be honest I just embrace it. The only time I've had any kind of boobage was when pregnant or breastfeeding and I find it easier to find clothes that fit and hang well being smaller chested.
I would like it if what I had was a bit more pert but sadly that's just the consequence of being 42 and having breast fed 3 babies.

Wear as many backless dresses and jumpsuits as you can get your hands on!

JaneJeffer Mon 14-Jun-21 15:20:57

V necks are nice. Avoid crew necks.

Backstreetsbackalrightdadada Mon 14-Jun-21 15:23:00

You know what’s beautiful?? A waist!!! Rock it and wear low cut, if your boobs don’t need support you’ve got loads of options too
