The Little Bra Company Sale (sizes 28 - 36) - up to 75% off

**Update: Sale has ended**

I had set an alarm for this sale and must've missed it in a haze of dimsum food coma. Thankfully I caught Kelly's (thanks Kelly!) timely tweet and managed to grab two items I've been wanting. The Little Bra Company (TLBC)'s sale on Ideeli seems to be an annual occurrence, but this year's sale prices are lower than I remember.

To shop the sale on Ideeli: here's my invite link and here is a regular link. Sale ends in 1 day.

My recommendations: After a lot of regular wear, my favorite TLBC bras continue to be the pretty Yvonne, and Sasha convertible strapless. The soft lace band of the Yvonne has much more "give" than their regular bands, but may slowly stretch out with wear (I started on the first hook and slowly progressed to the last one). It's only lightly padded and the cups are smooth, making it a perfect everyday bra.

The Sascha has held up wonderfully over 2 years without stretching out or losing its shape (I usually hand wash and hang dry). I wear it all-seasons with the straps attached, and remove them for summer tube tops and dresses like the J.Crew Ella. The band sizes go down to a 28, so smaller rib-caged ladies don't have to suffer with strapless bras in the wrong size that constantly slip down. I also like that there's just a little bit of removable push-up padding inside the cups.

See my past reviews of TLBC styles:
The Yvonne, Mercedes, and Lucia bras
The Angela and Sascha bras

  1. I honestly believe this is the most important garment a woman can buy, and if you have a larger chest it's hard to find something you like and that offers support. Thanks for the heads up about this brand.

  3. Thanks for the heads up Jean! I've been looking at these bras forever but didn't want to spend so much. Unfortunately I'm on a waiting list for any bras in my size. lol. Maybe I'll get lucky:P

  4. I was kind of looking forward to this when I saw it in my inbox this morning since my I'm going to need to replace my everyday bras soon, but they hardly had anything in my size! Disappointed. Good prices though. But I have to say, it was hard to see how much padding was in the bras. They had the model wear a size or two too small! It was kind of ridiculous.

  5. Hi Jean! Thank you so much for sharing! I love the Sascha bra. It's the only one of theirs I have ever tried and it is the best strapless bra I have ever tried.

    I also want to mention that I think this bra is great even if you're not super petite in the chest (i.e. sz. 28 or cup AA), because it seems to hold me in better than any other bra I have ever tried.

  8. I didn't see a D or a DD cup in any that I clicked...Petite doesn't mean consistently small boobs, and I hope US bra companies acknowledge it.

    1. Yes, I have the same issue. Tiny band size but, er, well-endowed. I would love recommendations if any petites out there have any!

    2. Try Panache for 30 bands with bigger cup sizes!

    3. "Panache" is great. "Freya" is my favorite. I'm about to try a "Lepel". I've heard great things about Curvy Kate & like several of their styles but i don't think the fit would be right for me. For reference I am a 28D. Or 30C (32B if desperate). So i am not well endowed - but I have been there (went up to a 34FF/G when i started having babies and hovered around a 28G-30F/FF-32D/DD for the latter half of those years), so i probably have some understanding of what you are looking for :)

  9. ARgh. They only accept payments if you have a US billing address! =(

  10. Choosing the best and right bras is of great importance to women.

  11. choosing the right bra is difficult, especially for bigger bust girls...finding the perfect one (considering how many types and colors are) is extremely hard...thanks for sharing your experience...

  12. So you would recommend this brand over others? I've been stickin' to the mainstream and shopping at VS. But, always looking for a better fit where I can find it.

  13. I'm not petite - well not really, even though I'm only 5'1", but I wanted to suggest a few bra manufacturers for those like myself who maybe small around the back but have boobs. (I'm a 28FF/G). Panache(UK) has already been suggested, they also have a range aimed at younger women called Cleo, also Fantasie (UK), although they only do 30 back and above and their younger range Freya. Apparently Affinitis (USA) Parfait 30 backs run more like 28". Ewa Michalek (Poland) will make 28 and smaller backs to order.

    1. Yeah, I want to add that if you are petite - and less than a size 10, and wearing a bra with a band size 34 or larger you are probably in the wrong size!!
      Your band size should be about what your ribcage measures. I measure 29" ribcage and wear a 30G. .
      Get measured, but not at VS!! They don't carry even half the sizes that exist!!
