The Best Lingerie For Petites Who Want A Flattering Fit

If you want to add a little volume to your chest area (or just the illusion of bigger boobs), go for a bra with some strappy detailing above the cup. Petites usually struggle to make midriff straps work, so the below bras all feature a strappy cut-out-esque look on the bust instead. This way, you can try the trend and show off your cleavage!

Paradiso Petite Triangle Bralette

This bralette from Cosabella comes in sizes starting at a 28A, which means that it was literally made for you if you've got a petite frame that requires a smaller band size.

Natalia Underwire Bra

If colorful floral lace isn't your thing, try this black triangle option from Journelle. It adds just a little edge to the otherwise sweet style.

Take it from someone who sits comfortably at 5'2 on a good day: Adjustability is key if you want your clothes to fit you well. Lingerie is no different! Skip buttons and hook-and-eye closures and go for pieces that have adjustable straps or tie closures so you can adjust for the perfect fit.

Lilith Babydoll

The tie-back design on this babydoll from Adore Me means you can adjust to your liking without a trip to the tailor-because I don't think you would want your tailor touching your lingerie!

Unlined Lace Plunge Babydoll

For a totally customizable look, consider this Unlined Plunge Babydoll from Victoria's Secret. The peplum is cinched with a tie at the back of waist and the halter design means that you can decide exactly how low you want that V-neck to dip.

If you want to distract from a shorter torso (which is gorgeous, BTW!) consider playing up your legs! Making your gams the center of attention helps you to appear longer, so choose a three-piece set that comes with a garter belt and straps. The vertical lines along your leg will make you look taller without actually having to put on a pair of sky-high heels.

Perfect Poppies Lace Garter Belt + Lace Brazilian + Lace Bralette

Of course, Riri knows a thing or two about sexy lingerie! This bright orange garter belt (along with the coordinating bra and the skimpy matching panties) put a twist on sweet florals and allow you to show off hella leg.

A situation that so many shorter gals find themselves in is that moment when a bodysuit is just a little too long through the mid-section. To avoid this, wear a corset or a longline bra with a pair of matching panties instead of a one-piece look! The two pieces will basically touch in the middle, so it'll give the same effect as a bodysuit in the end.
