Lingerie - Size 32A Bra

Updated on March 11, 2011

If you're a petite woman, a 32a bra or similar sized bra is likely to be a key component of your wardrobe - much the same as for any other women.

But - other sized bras are generally easier to find, and come in a far wider range of styles and materials. Not so the 32a!

Therefore, the problem is knowing how to find the right bra - one that not only fits and flatters ... but looks both good and feels comfortable.

Happily, Amazon have a good selection available, be it a regular, soft form bra or a style that is underwired and/or supporting.

Largely inexpensive, most are everything a bra should be - and completely lack what the average petite bra usually includes.

Treat yourself to a bra that fits, a bra the looks good, boost, lifts ... you know the rest!

*all bras shown here are available in 32a and various colors. Don't let the advertized size put you off*

32A Bra


32a Bra Petite

A 32a bra, that's both functional and pretty, can be as difficult to find as something from the larger sized range.

Many women find that if you're not 'middle of the road' in terms of size and body shape - then neither is the clothing.

Happily, Amazon has a huge range available for women that are petite in every way. Their stock ranges from:

  • push up bras
  • strapless bras
  • underwire bras
  • sports bras
  • sleep bras
  • and more

Generally, a 32a bra is an elusive little beast. Many brand names and manufacturers tend to start from a 32c and up.

It's almost as if some view the petite woman as something akin to a child. The size itself widens the goal posts too much, hence the difficulty associated with finding the perfect bra.


32A Push Up Bra

A 32a push up bra will enhance what nature gave you.

Even in the petite size range, the right bra will make it look as though you're blessed with more than nature handed out, way back when.

Being small breasted doesn't have to mean that your less feminine or womanly and some of the bras shown here will certainly enhance your silhouette.

You can choose from among t-shirt type bras or more lacy confections, depending on your mood and what you need the bra for.

Some will have matching briefs, none of which will be hard to locate once you're on the Amazon online shopping site.

Have fun finding the perfect 32a push up bra. And have even more fun when you're wearing it!

Underwire Bra 32A

If you'd prefer an underwire bra in 32a size, there's a nice selection available.

Although the pictures show as being mainly neutral in color, most can be bought in alternative colors.

Made to perfectly fit the petite woman, they're both figure flattering and feminine.

Most are reasonably priced, bar the Hanro Women's Touch bra.

The best selling underwire 32a bra is the Wondrebra Women's Light Lift Gel Push Up Bra. It has rave reviews, particularly from one happy petite customer.

32A Strapless Bra

A 32a strapless bra is a great piece of lingerie for halter tops, wedding attire and summer or holiday clothing.

The right strapless bra should be flatter and enhance - without falling down.

The best selling and most popular is the Wonderbra Women's Wonderboost Convertible Strapless Bra.

It's got a good reputation among women that need a little boost as well as a bit of help in the enhancement department.

Even better - it's comfortable.

Most are the convertible type - allowing for added versitility. You can wear them without the straps, over the shoulder, halter neck or racer back. Some also come with a pair of clear straps, for invisible wear.

      what about non push-up bras for a slender figure? i am more interested in a simple lightly padded bra, nothing more, nothing less, just enough so you can't see i'm "cold"

      FD please help!!!!!!! no joke, ie; the bra as your feature shot, lace, hoping no padding, yes to underwire, no lining I can't find anywhere, it's been almost a year now, oh also no pushup and low front cut 34b, you hook me up finding that and I will obviously buy a gazillion off your page but I'll even buy green

      Have you come across these types, they went in and out 2 years ago, and the only bra I honestly will wear, I know it's been a droopy few years, help me I'm begging I swear please please

      My 1st bra was a 32A. It had been my mum's and she'd gone up a band size. She said "You'll have to stuff it with something until we get you some 'falsies'. Bras aren't usually made for boys!"

      Great hub! I have passed it on to my gal pal in Portland. It's funny, but I didn't expect that size to be a problem shopping. I always thought small back, large cup was a problem too - especially when you are between 16-30 years old and the things offered to those women look like something your oldest Grandma would wear. But, the times, they are 'a changing!' Thanks!

      Very informative. I'll shoe this to my sister and my mother. I think this was useful for us, especially for woman. But I just give a recommendation, because I am not user...hehehe. good work!

      Paradise - I'm not quite that big but I'm sure you will know (then) what it's like trying to find a pretty bra. Damn hard I expect. Big and little boobs are kinda forgotten in many ways :/

      drbj - no lol. I was thinking of a companion to the one I wrote about bra sizes. This one seemed appropriate. But maybe you know - I could go the whole way and just get seriously busty.

      Then there's corsets, silken wotsnames, them bras that expose - well ... more flesh than they cover. Woooo yes! The mother lode!

      OMG, froggie. You have discovered the mother lode of niches. You can hub on for decades. First the 32A, then B, C, D. Then the 34 A, B,C ad infinitum. I bow to your amazing ingenuity.

      Ah sorry cags lol. I'm sure you're over it now and thankyou, once again :)

      ethel - um ... me too. I am broad of beam when it comes to bras ;)

      Okay, now you have my vivid imagination running rampant and out of control woman. That is not fair! ;) :P But, that's okay, I'm going to be fine. LOL! On the other hand, I would agree, practical can be boring from time to time and silk, lace and even satin would be a tick better than simple or boring. So, now you have my attention!!! :) Thank you again for such a great hub. :) :P *bump*

      I think it's a generlaization Cags. Small bras are often as hard to find in anything other than a functional style as those designed for bigger chests. Practical seems to be the key. But we don't want just practical - that's boring - we also want lace and froth. :):)

      Hey Frog, I am sorry it is difficult for women, who live outside America to find such a product. It's a shame manufacturers do not want to make more for the smaller women. I know in America, most women do not have a problem coming up with this range for Bras or Lingerie. But, since I prefer small women, it was something I noticed is available. :) Btw- You're welcome! :)

      Hello, hello - once again, thankyou for stopping by. I should give you something, make you a bracelet, I dunno. You're quite the example of a true follower (cringes at the word). Thankyou :)

      Justine - and how are you chicky? Good, better, none too bad I hope?!

      Hussains - I thank you :)

    • frogdropping profile image

      Andria 7 years ago

      Aha Wesley ... a man with an eye on lingerie ;) You know, I'm kinda glad you don't need one but you know ... if ever you changed your mind!

      Cags - hey hey! Glad you don't need one either. I did this because I'm currently having to consider my own rather poor state of lingerie. It's a woman thing. I noticed (half a passing comment a few backs back from a small chested acquaintance) that this size is almost impossible to buy. A 32a bra really is an elusive little beast apparently. And thankyou :)

      Hey Frog, I saw it on the feed and wandered over to see what you did. Very nicely setup and quite an array of product. I have no use for them, but if I do know quite a few women and would be glad to send them your way...I just shared it on FB. :) Great hub! :)
