Do small busts need to be fitted?

1. Yes, you do need support. 
Contrary to popular belief, A and B cups need to be supported. Small chests rarely lead to the kind of back pain that keeps chiropractors in business; but without proper support, you can accelerate sagging. wearing a bra as a small-chested woman is "not so much for current times, but for later in life."

2. The fit of the band is crucial. 
The firmness of the band (not the straps) is of utmost importance. As a general rule, the firmness should be on the loosest hook of your band so that the band sits level on your back. From there, you adjust to the tighter hooks as the band stretches out. "I know we all want comfort," "But comfort doesn't necessarily mean that the band is going to give you that looseness. You want to be able to lift your arms without your breasts coming out the bottom of the bra." Amen, sister.

3. Don't get comfortable in your cup size, because things change. 
With all of the size discrepancies between brands, and our bodies constantly changing, it's not a good idea to assume that once you're a 34A, you'll always be a 34A. Never buy a bra without trying it on, and try to get fitted every 6 months if possible, or at least once a year!

4. You don't have to wear padding ... unless you want to.
But if you feel great about yourself with a little extra something, by all means, pad away!

5. You need more than one or two bras. 
If you're like some ladies, you find a couple of bras that work and wear them to death, this is very bad. "I would say you need a good seven to 10 bras so you'd be able to alternate every day," "This way, your bra and the elasticity on the band gets that rest that it needs so that it's fresh for the next wear." I recommend wearing your bras two or three times before you wash them to extend their lives.

6. Most importantly, wear what you feel great in. 
I can't stress this enough. Lingerie should be fun, not just functional. It should also be comfortable, because no one wants to be awkwardly adjusting underwire all day
