I am so thankful for the Little Bra Company. Finally, there is a brand that actually fits my petite frame!
I wear the Ethel in size 28 A. The band (set of 3 double hook & eye closures) runs larger than the Angela, and the straps are longer (I wear size 30 A in the Angela).
I’m partial to the Ethel not only because it’s purple, has lace, and has a pearl in the middle. It’s also very comfortable and provides nice lift and shape.
The demi cups have convenient removable pads. I always wear it with the extra padding.
The Ethel has a ballet-style (also known as leotard) back, so it stays in place better than the Angela. I am very impressed with how comfortable it is. I can wear it all day and forget that I have it on–that’s quite the miracle!
Overall, my only complaint about the Ethel is that the boning sometimes shows through shirts. That is to be expected with the lace though. I tend to be hypersensitive to small details.
The Mercedes bra is supposed to have a very similar fit as the Ethel, so I am yearning to try that. It’s a smooth-cup bra with a bit of lace. However, being a poor college student, it’s going to be awhile until I am able to afford it!
I’m also anticipating the LBC’s introduction of their new sports bra and another smooth-cup bra in Spring 2012! Check it out here.
The Little Bra Company proves that good things DO come in small packages.
