Happy Sunday! The Little Bra Company (TLBC) petite bras are so pretty and I was sent a few styles to try on (c/o Petite Ave) in the comfort of my own home. I personally prefer petite bras for the smaller cups and band sizes for a more flattering fit and shape.
Update: As of 2023 I noticed that TLBC is no longer offered at Petite Ave so I have updated the affiliate links accordingly. Some styles are no longer available since my original review was written in 2019.

Note: The bras were gifted for me to review but all opinions are my own.

I finally found a new petite bra to add to my rotation since I’ve been wearing the same boring petite bra style for years. The Kymber style is my favorite option out of the styles I received to try on since I prefer a molded cup to give me shape. The TLBC team was very helpful and based on my measurements they sent both size 34A and the sister size 32B for the Kymber style. I was surprised that size 32B fit me the best for the cup size in the Kymber style since I’ve always stuck to A or even AA cup sizes.
In full disclosure the Kymber style is the only bra I ended up keeping. I appreciated the opportunity to be able to try something new (while also helping out a fellow small businesswomen) since it is very difficult to shop for bras online.
TLBC Angela in nude, size 34A
If you’re an AA cup both the Angela (above) and Alana (below) styles are a smaller cup size than all of the other styles I tried on.
TLBC Alana in grapefruit/licorice, size 34A – note the front closure
TLBC Sascha Smooth, size 34A
The Sascha Smooth cup bra is a good option for a strapless bra (the straps are removable). I noticed that the cups are cut differently from this Sascha strapless bra which I have (in the ivory color) and used for my wedding in 2014.
TLBC Mia in apricot/honey, size 34A
The Mia (above) and Ethel (below) styles are more suitable for those who need a fuller cup size. I wasn’t able to fill out the cups in these two styles. I was sad because I loved the pretty lace details for the Mia style but the cup size and removable cookie placement just didn’t work out for me. You can see how much the cups for the Mia style gaps on my dress form which has a 33″ bust.
TLBC Ethel in black, size 32B
