Lingerie for the smaller bust?

(first post - be gentle!)

I've had a search through the forums but haven't been able to find anything too close to what I'm looking for.

I placed my first order with LH this week (very impressed with the speedy delivery) as I'm treating Mr Moromir to a weekend in London in a couple of weeks and was planning on giving him a couple of suprises!

But I do seem to have come up on a 'small' problem. I'm a 34B 10/12 on a good day and I ordered the Dreamgirl Jacquard Underwire Tulip Cup Baby Doll and I'm sad to say it doesn't fit me anywhere, especially the bust!

However the Dreamgirl Sheer Enticement fits me beautifully around the bust!

I would love to be able to wear something like this corset ( but am I likely to have the same problem?

Would I be better off looking for an underbust corset like this ( and getting a decently fitting bra and pants to go with it?

Or do I need to throw this idea out of the window completely and accept I need to 'go mesh' which isn't really what I had in mind (I feel I look 'cheap').

Are there any brands that come up particularly small in the bust area?

PS Heres the rest of my order incase anyone was wondering!

hey hun, I have to say that I'm the same size as you and find any underwear or sexy lingerie ill fitting from wherever I get them. LH can refund you the lingerie if it doesn't fit oir if you don't like it. that first corset is stunning, I've been eyeing it up for ages myself! I'm sure something like that will fit you nicely though, maybe think about buying a size smaller, or order both and send back what doesn't fit. LH sizes are usually pretty accurate and they are excellent when it comes to things like this, I've done it myself and gotten refunds for things, no questions asked.

I hope you find something that fits you perfectly, I'm sure hubby will think you look sexy whatever you decide on and I'm confident you will look stunning too. Just remember- all the best things come in small packages!

hope to see you around the forums, there's lots of other lovely members I'm sure you'll come across that are friendly and always willing to listen, chat and offer advice.

just a tip, I've found thst if I get anything thats just mesh as you say or lace and has no underwire or has a string halterneck tie, then I end up looking like I'm sporting two fried eggs. I tend to go for things that are boned or have underwire or that you don't need to tie up. I'm sure though that the corsets will fit you lovely. I fit also that balconette bras do wonders for me if i get a 34a cup instead of 34b. can I suggest this to you, I love it and it's on my wishlist;

I think it looks sexy and classy, and looks like it'll fir lovely!

Hiya Moromir,

Welcome to the OA.

Apologies I have nothing helpful to add (am not petite by any stretch of the imagination), I just wanted to say hello.


I have this: from Sweet Streak - now being of smaller bust (I'm tiny and awkwardly shaped yay!) I did find the sweetheard neckline an issue *but* in this photo you can see my solution:

I bought a cheap little bow pin and carefully pulled in the gapey bits to make it sit flatter on my bust and it worked a treat. I also wore those stick on gel bras (2 pairs of them) underneath the corset to fill it out a little but I didn't really need it (in those photos it's just all me!) because the waist cinching gave me more of a curve even without breastage.

Underbust corset could work wonders, especially if you're planning on doing a little strip tease (more to take off and tease with) and you could get a black one and wear with a sexy and red bra and knicker set to contrast! With black stockings and red heels -delicious!

Knicker suspenders are my new favourite thing too!

There is a good thread on specific "styles" that are good for smaller busted ladies *tootles off to find it*

Grrr - can't find it but there's some good advice here and

The second one may be particularly useful


Knowing your body shape can make it easier to shop.

Things I've learnt....

1) buying undies as separates can be beneficial to make sure you get the perfect fit

2) buy spanish - Zara and Mango are both great for dinkier sizes

3) look for corsets by inches - you generally go 2 inches smaller than your natural waist but if you have an enviable waist anyway do you need to go more than an inch smaller than normal - may make buying easier

4) with any bras or corsets go for (can't remember the name so apologies for dodgy description) cup styles that cut diagonally across the boob rather than straight across or curved over the boob.

5) buy and try lots of styles til you find what works for you - LH has an excellent returns policy, make the most of it!
