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 Dusty Sage Cotton Logo 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 low crisscross back totally play up the romantic vibes. Adjustable straps and cheeky bottom make 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 wire bras, 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.
Only Hearts Jolene Bralette
Bralettes in general are a great choice for those with smaller chests, and this sheer ruffled bra is sweet and flirty. The best part? The hook-and-eye clasps at the front closure help create the illusion of cleavage by encouraging breasts towards the center of the chest. Rock it with the Jolene Ruffle Bikini undies ($38; journelle.com) and you'll always feel put together, even under jeans and T-shirt.
Le Petit Trou Mathilde Triangle Bra
Don’t worry about overwhelming a small chest with lots of details—the more, the merrier. Embellishments, ruffles, and ribbons add volume to your top half, which makes your breasts appear larger. This dreamy triangle bralette is a total knockout, and well worth the splurge. Slip it on with the Le Petit Trou Sabrina Brief ($78; journelle.com) for a look that's undeniably feminine and fun.
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).
