Dolce & Gabbana Petite Bra

Amber thinks it looks black; I think it looks purple. It's dark brown.


I’m excited to introduce Amber M., our guest author this month. She discovered this Dolce & Gabbana bra with no help whatsoever from me, and she’s been kind enough to review it so that all of you looking for bras on the small side of an AA cup can check out this brand.

I have never in my life had an easy time finding clothes that fit properly. I’m built…I don’t really want to say “weird,” because I like how I’m built, it’s just that clothing stores don’t seem to like how I’m built. I’m too tall and gangly, too short in the torso, too long in the arm, and so on. Mostly, through a lot of trial and error, I’ve been able to negotiate truces with several stores that seem to carry at least a few things that fit me well despite my proportional oddities, but not a single truce has been made when it comes to covering my practically non-existent bust.

Which brings me to the crux of the matter. I am not really a petite woman, but my breasts certainly are. I measure at a perfectly comfortable 34 band size, but the “AA” part of my measurement often leads me astray as I’m not actually quite that big. I’ve tried a lot of cup sizes: 34AA, 34A, 32A, 32AA. Some of these work…mostly. But far more often than not, they are not-quite-right: they gap, they slide up, they hang open, they don’t fit. So when I find a bra that fits in the cups and fits perfectly…well, I don’t even know how to react because really, it’s never happened before. Until now.
