16 Small Boob Bra Hacks That Will Seriously Save You!

July 24, 2015 3 min read

Bras can be a hassle for any cup size, but we smaller chested ladies have our own unique set of challenges. Here are 16 life saving bra hacks for small boobs:

#1 Get Fitted

You may walk around your whole life thinking you're a size 34A, when you're actually a 32B. Or you may have gotten fitted in the past, but your breasts have changed and your size is different.

#2 Know Your Materials

The fabric of your bra can make a huge difference when it comes to your fit. For example, a heavy lace can provide a tight fit and ample support. A thin lace can give you more stretch. It's important to focus on the fit of the fabric rather than simply the look of it.

#3 Look For Silicone On Your Strapless

A silicone band around your strapless bra can keep it in place and add extra grip. But be prepared because silicone can get uncomfortable. Although if you're wearing a strapless, I doubt comfort is your main concern.

#4 Try Boob Contouring

Instead of torturing yourself with a push-up, simply brush a bronzer darker than your natural skin colour over the tops of your boobs and between them. Apply a shimmer on the rounds to highlight them. Just like with face contouring, blending is the key.

#5 Moisturize

Some lotions and creams can slightly plump and lift your breasts naturally. You can also make your own cream by adding fennel to your regular lotion. Fennel helps increase estrogen production which can aid the development of boob fullness. It's a secret ingredient in many expensive "miracle" creams.

#6 Wear A Sports Bra

Even smaller breasts need support to prevent them from sagging later in life.

#7 Buy A Racerback Bra

Racerback style straps provide support while eliminating the annoyance of slipping straps. They are a versatile addition to any wardrobe.

#8 Make A Racerback Bra

You can turn any bra of yours into a DIY racerback by taking a paperclip and pulling the straps towards the centre of your back. Simply hold the straps in place with the clip and you're set! This works well for hiding straps while wearing a racerback T-shirt and providing support and an instant push-up.

#9 The Secret Dress Bra

Loving a backless dress on the store rack, but dreading going braless in it? Try sewing the cups of a discount bra into the front of it for that subtle, #nobrabra look.

#10 Bra Boning

Boning on the sides helps anchor your bra to your body. It provides ample shape and beautiful structure.

#11 Take The Plunge

If your breasts sit far apart from one another, look for a plunge style bra. This will create cleavage.

#12 Store Bras Right

To keep bras in proper shape, "stack" them together in your drawer the way they are displayed at lingerie stores.

#13 The Balconette Bra

Balconette bras are perfect for smaller ladies who have more volume on the bottom of their breast than the top. This design will provide the best shape and cleavage.

#14 Care For Your Push-Up

Always wash your push-up properly by removing the cups first. Reshape them when you insert them back into the bra.

#15 Get A Padded Plunge

Padded plunge bras can be cleavage miracle workers by providing a little padding at the side of your breast to give a total lifting effect.

#16 Pat Your Bras

In reference to washing, don't hang bras up by their straps to dry as this causes them to lose their shape. Gently pat dry your bras with a towel to remove excess water and leave them out to air dry.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
