This week, our fit and style expert, Jenny Altman, tackles a bra dilemma we hear time and time again – for smaller chested girls looking for a pushup, what’s the best bra to choose for a natural look? Jenny talks some of her top picks below!
Q: Hi Jenny! I’ve been trying to find the right Aerie push-up bra for me. I wear a 32A and need a push-up that fits but doesn’t gap. Which Aerie push-ups would you recommend?
A: I love your question! I am also a 32A, and I have had great luck with push-up bras from Aerie. The Ella Gel happens to be my favorite.
You can use our bra guide and sort by size to find all the push-up bras available in size 32A. The best thing is that in our bra guide, you can see bras in your cup size. This feature is so helpful in finding the right amount of coverage and lift for you! Our A-cup model is a real A, so you can see how each bra looks on an A-cup.
Since you know your size, it really is a question of which style bra fits you best (whether it’s push-up bra or not) depending on your breast fullness/shape. Some girls do better with full coverage, others with less. If you are a smaller, or less “full” A, then try a bra with less coverage like a balconette or demi-cup. I think you would like the Charley, Lexi, or the Ella Gel (or the Emma if you’re looking for some serious push!). None of these are too full coverage for a smaller cup size, and they all give great lift.
Gapping is another problem many girls of all cup sizes may experience with certain bra styles. Luckily, it can also be a super quick fix! Check out Jenny’s pro advice on the blog for all the deets.
