Treat yourself to something lacy.
Lingerie is meant to make a woman feel sexy—whether it’s for her partner, herself, or just for fun. But the number one thing guaranteed to ruin your sultry vibes? A poor fit.
There are variety lingerie styles you can choose, from the sexiest of bodysuits to fun, flirty bralettes, and finding a fit that suits your shape will help you look and feel your best. To help you find The One, we’ve rounded up our top picks for women with a smaller chest. From shapes meant to amp up your top half to styles perfect for embracing your petite chest, these are the best of the best for a sexy night in.
Aerie Romantic Lace Padded Bralette
If you’re wanting to amp up a smaller chest, a padded bra or bralette is a great choice. Think of this longline pick with a lacy T-strap back as an absolute must for date night: it will look perfect peeking out from a low-cut or sheer blouse at dinner, and even better paired with these Crochet Lace BoyBriefs ($10; ae.com) for a sexy yet playful look.
Free People Lace Bodysuit
A simple bodysuit silhouette is classic sexy, and the unlined lace cups, allover sheer lace body, and open back totally play up the romantic vibes. A cheeky bottom makes this feel even more comfortable, while the extreme scoop neck brings the eye right to the chest.
Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Lightly Lined Bralette
For a girl who loves athleisure, Calvin Klein sets are the perfect balance between sexy and fun. The racerback and elastic logo band keep things sporty, while a slight dip in the neckline helps accentuate a smaller chest and make it appear more pronounced. Pair with the Modern Cotton Bikini ($20; amazon.com) for a perfect match.
Fleur Du Mal Crochet Lace Balconette Bra
If you’re looking to invest in one perfect bra, a gorgeous balconette-style shape is your best bet. This ultra-feminine style is low cut, and the shorter cups show more breast, creating the illusion of a larger chest overall. This stunning pick comes adorned with thick, wide-set black straps for even more lift, and the white stretch-eyelet crochet lace pairs perfectly with the flirty ruffle on the matching Crochet Lace Thong ($55; shopbop.com).
Soma Breathtaking High Neck Bralette
If you love comfort and prefer sports bras over wires, you'll love this lacy hybrid. With a wide band and adjustable straps that can crisscross at the back (read: no visible bra straps), this bralette has gorgeous detailing across the chest to make a bust appear fuller. Pair it with the matching Cheeky Lace Bikini Bottom ($24; soma.com) for a very sultry look.
BRABAR HUG Laceback Bra
Don't let the front of this bra fool you: the sheer lace back straps are totally unexpected. We love this super-comfy brand, which makes bra shopping much easier, since all styles are available in just two sizes that are guaranteed to fit everyone (and be flattering!). The flexible opening also makes this a good choice for breastfeeding mamas.
Contradiction Strapped Bra
Don’t worry about overwhelming a small chest with lots of details—the more, the merrier. Embellishments, ruffles, and strategically-placed straps add volume to your top half, which makes your breasts appear larger. This dreamy bra is a total knockout, and well worth the splurge.
Free People Comin' In Haht Bodysuit
Want to spice things up with something more unique than a basic lingerie silhouette? Allover lace (with light cups) and a plunging neckline make this a sexy option for staying in, or paired with high waisted denim for a date night. Once home, slip out of your jeans and you're ready for post-date shenanigans (wink).
Mae Women's Hi-Neck Lace Bralette
This is one of the top-rated bralettes on Amazon, and for good reason: It's affordable, available in a slew of fun colors (we're loving this tropical peach), and is comfortable to wear, thanks to adjustable straps. The scalloped lace trim and cutout back add surprising details.
