Best Bra For Short Torso

Elomi Amelia also has seamless spacer fabric which traps a layer of air for a beautifully rounded shape without adding volume. It’s perfect as a t-shirt bra. Available in nude, black in the below size ranges, with seasonal fashion colours available whilst stocks last:

AUS 12 (UK 34) G-HH cups
AUS 14-18 (UK 36-40) DD-HH cups
AUS 20 (UK 42) DD-H cups
AUS 22 (UK 44) DD-GG cups

Freya Deco Amore This style is based on Freya’s best-selling Deco moulded plunge bra. If your size isn’t available in the Freya Deco Amore, not to worry… there are more seasonal styles in the Deco family! With fully adjustable straps, it’s perfect for a woman with a shorter torso as it allows you to tighten them even further. Make sure you don’t tighten them too far past your shoulder bone so you don’t rely too much on the straps for lift, the band must be firm.

                       

The Deco Amore is crafted from velvet-look marl that hugs low around the rib cage, anchoring the cups to your torso. This offers a natural rounded shape without overspill. Also sitting low under the arms, there’s less chance of chaffing in the Deco Amore Bra.

Our favourite part of this bra is the racerback clip on the straps, allowing you to create a crossover bra look under clothes where you don’t want your straps to show. Making this perfect for a curvier shorter woman, the racerback also allows more stability in the straps (an advantage if your straps are always falling off your shoulders). The Deco Amore is available for a limited time in the below sizes:

AUS 6-8 (UK 28-30) F-GG cups
AUS 10-12 (UK 32-34) E-GG cups
AUS 14 (UK 36) E-F cups

Ewa Michalak Bibi BM Bra Our Ewa Michalak range of bras are unique. What we love about Ewa Michalak styles is how low they sit under the armpits. If you are short in the torso and your bust tends to sit under your arms, then the side-sling on the Bibi BM Bra is perfect for you. Adding a completely front-facing effect to the bra, Bibi will not only lift but also minimise you from the sides.


The Bibi is a fuller-cup balconette, allowing you to feel secure in softer fabric, and offering support and shape without cutting into your underarms.

There’s no need to compromise on a flattering shape and comfortable fit with this Ewa Michalak bra. It’s available in black in the below size ranges, with some sizes also available in white:

AUS 6-12 (UK 28-34) F-K cups
AUS 14 (UK 36) F-JJ cups
AUS 16 (UK 38) F-J cups
AUS 18 (UK 40) F cup

Panache Jasmine Balconette Bra Jasmine can be described as the slightly more conservative sister for the Bibi BM bra. Offering the same side-support from an impressive side-sling, the Panache Jasmine bra adds a more natural shape to the uplift.

Low enough for medium necklines, there’s also stretch lace at the top of the cup to flatter the shape of your bust.


Being fully-adjustable also means that if you’re bigger-boobed and short, this bra will offer the perfect fit for you. The strap on the Jasmine gets thicker as you tighten it, allowing restricted chance of slipping off your shoulders.

Panache Jasmine is available in the below sizes in black and nude, with seasonal colours available whilst stocks last.

AUS 6 (UK 28) F-HH cups
AUS 8-16 (UK 30-38) D-K cups

Bra fitter’s tips for curvy, short women:
  • Buy a racerback clip for your slipping straps.
  • Make sure your back band is firm enough, so it sits lower on your back and anchors your bust higher.
  • Non-slip shoulder pads are also your friend!
  • Sometimes your underwires may cut into your under arms because the sizing does not correlate to the back band. Getting both your bra back band and cup size right is a life changer!

What We Love

  • Even on our bigger chests, the bra looked and felt luxurious while providing ample amounts of support.

What We Don’t Love

  • The lack of padding causes the nipples to poke through when it gets cold. 

Not to be dramatic, but this might possibly be the most comfortable bra we ever tried on. Regardless of cup size, this bra made our girls look perky, while feeling practically weightless. To begin, the material feels (and looks) impossibly soft. The combination of polyamide and elastane gives it a satiny finish and allows it to lay flat against the chest with no gaping. It molded to our bodies as if it was custom-made for us. And while it didn’t have any padding or push-up, it still managed to give us a nice lift and support, thanks to the underwire (which, by the way, never poked us or dug into our skin) — even on our bottom-heavy breasts. The adjustable straps, albeit a little short on our longer torsos, never dug into our shoulders either. 

As big-chested women, we typically deal with a little spillage over the top of the bra, but this one provided just the right amount of coverage. Without providing too much coverage (you know, those grandma-looking bras us big-chested girls come across far too often), this bra managed to cover, hold, and support while looking absolutely stunning. 

Underneath our shirts, the thin fabric blended in so seamlessly, you would have thought it was skin. That being said, there is no nipple protection on the cups, so a little cold breeze immediately showed the shape of our nipples. If that bothers you, a thicker tee will certainly remedy the solution because we don’t think that’s worth skipping this bra for that reason.

What We Love

  • The mesh portion is pulled up by delicate straps, which keeps any gaping between skin and cup from happening.

What We Don’t Love

  • You can mildly see the texture of the strap against the mesh from underneath tight shirts.

Pepper specifically creates bras for small boobs (from cup sizes AA to B). Color us impressed, because upon placing the bra against our A-cupped chest, we were elated to find it sat flat against our rib cage, shoulder width, and cups. There was no gaping, which is easily the number one problem small chests have with bras.  

This option has a styled mesh layer over the bra, connected to a delicate strap that pulls the cup upward and keeps the material flat against the chest. While we did notice that the texture shows ever so slightly underneath tight-fitting shirts, other tops don’t give away to the bra at all. 

On top of fitting like a glove, we loved how incredibly soft the fabric felt. Both the mesh overlay and the smooth band felt extremely comfortable against the skin on top of being quite sturdy; we never had to worry about them potentially snagging or pulling when they came into contact with zippers, jewelry, or nails.

What We Love

  • The power mesh has incredible support power, lifting up even our bigger chests with comfort. 

What We Don’t Love

  • Given the mesh fabric, it’s not exactly buttery soft.

We cannot rave enough about this bra. The unlined beauty is just the right balance between minimal and structured. There is an underwire, which curves along the cups and comes up to around our armpits, ensuring our breasts don’t slip out of the side. Made of sheer Belgian power micromesh, the bra blew us away with how much support it gave our breasts for how thin of a material it is. While mesh bras typically don’t work on our big chests, this, combined with the strap positioning coming up the sides of our decolletage, held them up like it was no big feat. Simply put, it was love at first wear. 

Yes, the mesh fabric, however strong and sturdy, is see-through. Without any extra padding, our nipples were on full display. It’s also not the most soft material we tried on, given its net-like texture, but we didn’t notice any irritation on our skin. When we covered it with a simple shirt (even a white one), we saw no signs of our areolas. The bra felt so natural on our skin that upon leaving the house, we experienced a mild panic thinking we forgot to put on a bra. And while we typically strip our bras off immediately after returning home, we were happy to spend the rest of the day lounging around in this beauty until it was time to shower – that’s how effortless it felt. The material of the bra was simply sublime, and despite how breathable and second-skin it felt like, it never gave up on support.

What We Love

  • Rather than pushing up or lifting, this supported the natural curve of our big chests with delicacy. 

What We Don’t Love

  • The straps are neither adjustable nor removable.

Before we dive into the ins and outs of this luscious bra, it should be noted that the cups are a sleek, thin material, not unlike a silky bralette, — not even the Cuup Scoop Bra, which we admit does look similar. This one, however, comes in half sizes as well. You’ll find a size A, as well as an A ½ to cover a wider range of chest sizes. The luxurious, unpadded fabric provided full coverage, blending into the straps and smoothing over our shoulders in a triangular shape. The material didn’t pill, stretch, or shrink after a wash, which was a huge relief. Underneath it all was an underwire that went all the way up under our armpits.

This bra amazed us with how much it truly felt like second-skin. Rather than providing a significant amount of support, it beautifully molded into the natural shape of our breasts. We never noticed any spillage – at least not on our bottom-heavy chest. Instead, the material pressed around our body, tucking us into its soft material with care. Unfortunately, there are no customizable features on this bra, as the straps are neither adjustable nor removable. 

It’s typically hard to find non-padded bras for larger chests, but this one simply left us speechless. Even underneath a shirt, it looked completely natural and invisible, that is, until the wind blew and revealed our nipples poking through the thin fabric.
