Expert Tips for Buying Petite Lingerie

August 8, 2022
By, laura

When it comes to lingerie, petite women have unique needs. Finding the right style and fit can be a challenge, but with the right tips, it’s definitely doable. Some lingerie might leave you with baggy fabric, loose straps and unflattering busts. Whether you’re petite and athletic or petite and curvy, you want to feel your best when you’re in the bedroom, and this all starts with well-fitted lingerie. Here are some expert tips to help you find the perfect petite lingerie for your body type.

Petite and athletic

If you’re petite and athletic, you probably have a smaller bust and narrower hips. This means that you can get away with wearing less coverage. A balconette bra is a great option for petite women with smaller busts. It will accentuate your curves without adding bulk. For bottoms, a thong or Brazilian knickers will create curves and show off your figure. If you’re self-conscious about showing too much skin, a silk chemise with a slit up the side will help to elongate your legs and make you feel incredibly sexy.

Petite with a larger bust

If you’re petite with a larger bust, you want to focus on finding lingerie that will support your curves. A plunge bra is a great option as it will lift your bust and create an illusion of cleavage. For bottoms, choose something with a bit more coverage like a boy short or brief. This will provide extra support and make you feel comfortable and confident. A chemise or babydoll can also help to boost your confidence by skimming over your curves and highlighting your best assets.

Petite and curvy

If you’re petite and curvy,  you want to find lingerie that flatters your shape without adding bulk. A full-coverage bra will give you the support you need, while a high-waisted brief will help to slim your tummy and accentuate your waist. A babydoll is also a great option as it will skim over your curves.

What to avoid when you’re petite

  • You want to avoid anything that adds bulk or makes you look larger than you are. This means steering clear of ruffles, lace and other embellishments.
  • Don’t be afraid to try more daring fabrics like wet-look lingerie or latex. This can help to accentuate your curves.
  • You also want to avoid anything that’s too loose-fitting as this will swamp your petite frame. Items like full-body stockings could make you appear shorter.
  • Long-line bras will cut you off in the middle and make your torso appear shorter, so these should also be avoided.
  • Matching your stockings to your shoes will help to make your legs appear longer.

Choosing the right size

The best choice for a petite frame is something that is adjustable. For example, a soft lace cup bikini style bra and thong set will allow you to adjust the size to fit you perfectly. This also applies to other lingerie items such as chemises, bodies and babydolls. If you’re unsure about your size, always err on the side of caution and go for something that is a bit smaller. You can always adjust it to fit better, but if something is too big it will never look right.

Invest in quality

Quality materials will always look better on a smaller frame. This is because cheap materials can look stretched and lose their shape easily. It’s better to invest in a few high-quality pieces that will last you longer and make you feel confident when you wear them. When it comes to lingerie, petite women have unique needs. Finding the right style and fit can be a challenge, but taking the time to find what works for you will pay off in the long term.
