Nutcracker Sweets Act I: 5 Holiday Picks for Smaller Busts

You guys, seriously, there is SO MUCH pretty lingerie out right now.  I must share it with you, if only to have people to gush over it with.  I was inspired by The Lingerie Addict’s week of holiday shopping guides as well as Holly’s at The Full-Figured Chest which features gorgeous indie designers.  Since I know some people still have gifts to give, I thought I’d break my holiday choices down into categories, to make Santa’s job a bit easier, you know?  Let’s kick things off with some beautiful choices for women with smaller busts who are looking for sexy, elegant, festive lingerie to dazzle in this season.  I’ll follow up with some picks for fuller busts, fuller figures, and maternity over the coming week.  I hope you enjoy!

Note: For purposes of this post, “smaller bust” refers to women who wear band sizes in a 28-38 range and cup sizes (approximately) in the AA-D range, although some of the items pictured below also come in additional sizes.

First up, from Meg at Midnight, a beautiful lace bra with a pattern that reminds me of bare winter tree branches outlined against the sky:

"Bonnie" by Meg at Midnight.  Available in sizes 30-34 AA-B.  The pattern in the French Leavers Lace reminds me of the silhouette of dark winter trees against snow.  Bra £95.00, Knicker £65.00

Next up, from Dottie’s Delights, calling all Sugar Plum Fairies:

"Millie" pink bra, suspender belt, and knickers by Dottie's Delights.  Bra $160, available in sizes 32-36 A-E.  Garter belt $135, available in sizes XS-2XL.  Knickers $65, XS-XL.

“Millie” pink bra, suspender belt, and knickers by Dottie’s Delights. Bra $160, available in sizes 32-36 A-E. Garter belt $135, available in sizes XS-2XL. Knickers $65, XS-XL.

Looking for hues in a more angelic range?  (Also, please notice how freaking many accessories are available.  This is why I love Mimi Holliday— you can really build a lingerie ensemble that suits your individual tastes).

"Bisous Bisous" in Brulee by Mimi Holliday.  Silk-Satin Super Plunge Bra, available in sizes 28-30 AA-FF, 32 AA-F, 34 A-E, 36 A-DD, 38-40 A-D.

For the very petite bust, a classic, elegant design in berry pink with black guipure lace from Lula Lu:

"Amara" Bra and Thong by Lula Lu Petites.  Bra $59, available in sizes 32-36 AAA-B.  Thong $34, XS-L.

“Amara” Bra and Thong by Lula Lu Petites. Bra $59, available in sizes 32-36 AAA-B. Thong $34, XS-L.

Finally, this?  This right here, from HuitThis might be my single favorite piece of lingerie released this year.

"Rumeur" longling bra by Huit.  Available in sizes 32-36 A-D.  $110.  Coordinating short, thong, high-waisted panty and bra available.

“Rumeur” longling bra by Huit. Available in sizes 32-36 A-D. $110. Coordinating short, thong, high-waisted panty and bra available.

If this came in my size, I would own the HELL out of it.  It’s simultaneously architectural and delicate, feminine and severe, practical and frivolous, retro and modern.  The other pieces in the set are lovely too, but the longline bra, with its plunging back and removable straps, has stolen my heart.

Bonus #6, some of the other pieces in the Rumeur collection.

"Rumeur" bra and high-waist brief by Huit.  Brief $69, available in sizes XS-XL, Bra 32-36 A-DD, $85-95

“Rumeur” bra and high-waist brief by Huit. Brief $69, available in sizes XS-XL, Bra 32-36 A-DD, $85-95

    Although it is most definitely worn for your own enjoyment (as it should be), any man in whom you have any serious interest should be made aware of your fondness for wearing beautiful lingerie. What an enormous drawing card that is for most men! The mere thought of you in stunningly sexy lingerie would make most men kill or die to be with you. They are such little boys…and every little boy loves to unwrap a beautiful gift 😉

    I want them all! They are calling to me… (I put part of the Huit Rumeur set on my own list, but the longline is gorgeous).

      Jeez it’s just . . . it’s so freaking pretty. I saw it in some of the trade show reports last year, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.

    I knew I shouldn’t have read on once I saw the title…so many pretty bras that I can never own! That Huit bra really took my breath away when I first saw it and I’m still so sad I can’t wear it. I even worked out all the sister sizes to my own to see if there was some way I could make it work for me with serious alteration, but it’s not made in any size with a big enough cup for me.
    I think I need a lingerie addicts anonymous group.

      I’ve thought about sister-sizing it before, too, but I just think it’s a no-go. Alas. Don’t worry, the full-bust picks are coming soon!

      I haven’t seen a Meg at Midnight piece in person, but the small-bust Mimi Holliday pieces are absolutely stunning! The silk is soft, the lace isn’t scratchy, and they’re impeccably made. So pretty!
