This bra runs extremely small! I did not see this mentioned anywhere. The second style I ordered was the same size and fit perfectly, this one however will barely fasten even in the last clip and is WAY to tight even there.

Timpa Response: Yes, Timpa is a petite figured line and was especially designed for the customer with smaller breasts looking for a non padded natural lift, with a sexy plunge line. See the Tomima tip that explains for more coverage to size up on band and one cup. We recommend trying a 38C. Sue from Georgia

Very comfortable. I usually wear a 32 but had to order this bra in a 36 so that the bra lines wouldn't show through my clothes. I like this bra very much. marjorie from Arroyo Seco NM

Great bra. Fits close to the body so practically invisible under clothing. Be aware this brand fits small so go up one band size, I usually take a 34. I am saving to get more colors, this is my daily choice for bra! Rae from California

I usually wear a 32 but had to order a 36 in order for there not to be any bra marks. Cup size is still very good in a 36. Marjorie from Arroyo Seco, NM, USA

The band was too narrow for me under the arms and across the back. There was a bulge around it. My problem, not the bra's, but I had to return it.

I found that this ran small. I had to return it much to my dismay as it was a pretty little thing! Shron from Amityville

Loved the lacy look, but it was too small and a little skimpy.

Timpa Response: Yes Timpa is a petite figured line and was especially designed for the customer with smaller breasts looking for a non padded natural lift, with a sexy plunge line. We recommend trying a 36C for a little more coverage. Erin

This bra is just so awkward. Does not fit in any way shape or form.

Timpa Response: Yes Timpa is a petite figured line and was especially designed for the customer with smaller breasts looking for a non padded natural lift, with a sexy plunge line. 36C is almost our biggest size, we recommend sizing up to 38C. IZ from NJ

(First off – thank you to everyone that posted a review….I bought these “blind” strictly based on reviews and hope this review helps folks too.) Finally a bra that fits me!!!! I have pretty much never been able to find anything that really fits...most bras I’ve had always had a bit of a gap between the top part of the cup and my chest – whether for “pre-molded cups” (where you see the cup shape even if it’s lying on the table) or “soft cup” (where the cup isn’t molded, but perhaps lightly lined). One can especially see this “gap” if I lean forward or slouch in my chair and I’m wearing a loose top (vs. tight/snug) in a thin material like rayon – you’ll see the fabric drape along the cup, and then drop sharply toward my chest – basically emphasizing the fact that my bust doesn’t fill the top of the cup. I’ve tried smaller cups and band variations but then I overflow or get body fat hanging out everywhere. Fitwise - I am 5’2”, 32” around measured under the bust. I am 36-1/2" at the widest part of my bust. My breast I would say is rounder at the underneath and sloped at the top (which is what causes that “gappy” look I guess) vs. “full/round on top”. I usually wear a 36B in other brands. In this bra, 38C fit me comfortably around, no overflow, and no gapping (even when I bend over)!!! 38B and I was a bit overflowing. First time the underwire actually lays flat against my chest+sternum and stays put all day. Stylewise – this is a beautiful stretch lace bra (if you have dark nips, they will show through on the lighter colors). Unlined, so I don’t know how long the lace will last, but it doesn’t matter. I’ll continue to buy this as long as it’s available. Also, because it’s unlined you will have show-through on those cold days. 1 hook band width. Hubby likes it. :) sjmom from ca

Great bra. Very sheer coverage. Definitely order up one size (I can do 32, but definitely had to do 34 with this). Like the minimal coverage and the thin straps. Karena from New York, NY USA

This bra fits too small. I'm not sure if it was miss marked or their sizes run much smaller than regular US sizes.

Timpa Response: Yes Timpa does run smaller, but we only suggest to go up one cup/band size for more coverage. NB from Columbia/MD/USA

My breasts are a bit on the bottom-heavy, shallow-on-top side, so it's really hard for me to find no-lining, no-padding bras that work with my figure (in my size). The amount of fabric, and the shape of the cups on this bra are JUST PERFECT for me. I took the advice on the site and ordered up a band size (and down a cup size) and it's perfect. (The sizing seems to run a bit small.) Thank you so much for making bras for smaller-cupped ladies! Julie from Phoenix, AZ

I LOVE this bra! I've finally found something with underwire, but no padding. The fit is great. I measure a 34A and read that some people thought this bra ran big, but I found it ran on the smaller size. I have it on the biggest hook right now, so there is room to make it smaller down the road if it stretches out. It's a very sexy looking bra with the lace and bow. My only minor complaint is that the fabric could be a little nicer for the price. Otherwise, I'm so happy that I found this brand. I just ordered 4 more in various colors! Meg from Ohio

Comments onsite about sizing in the band were right. I had to exchange for the 34 b/c the 32 really was smaller than normal. Great fit and feel though! K Wu from New York, NY, USA

I love this bra! As a very small-breasted woman, I have a hard time finding bras that fit and flatter me at all, much less bras that are as beautiful and sexy as this one. The fact that it isn't padded is remarkable. I plan to buy several more in other colors. As for the previous comments regarding sizing, I normally wear a 32A (or a 34AA), and I went up as suggested to a 34A. The band is on the snug side, and the cups *just* cover me. Definitely recommend sizing up for anyone who's unsure. Kate from Arkansas

This bra turned out to be exactly what I wanted: something unpadded and unlined AND something with underwire to support my less than perky post-baby breasts. Lo and behold, when I finally found what I wanted, the bra turned out to be sexy, too! Thank you, Timpa, for realizing that not all women with small breasts are willing to pad themselves within an inch of their lives and risk dying of heat stroke in the hottest summer on record just to make their breasts look bigger. Seriously, people! About the sizing: I usually wear a 32B and ordered both that size and a 34B because I read that the band size ran small. When I tried the two sizes on, the 34B (hooked on the tightest loop) was actually a little more comfortable, but I assumed it would stretch, so I ended up keeping the 32B even though it felt a little tight (hooked on the loosest loop). After a couple of months of regular wear, the band has stretched a bit and it's much more comfortable. Also, I think it's worth noting that a tight band is important to providing support in a unlined/unpadded bra with a stretchy fabric. I love this bra! Kate

I gave this as a gift to my wife for my pleasure. This was given along with the matching briefs, Shirley of Hollywood garter belt, and Berkshire stockings. She looks breathtaking in this outfit. This bra is the best fitting bra for her petite figure. The top of the cups lies flat against her skin and does not pucker outward exposing her nipples (as I look down from above [she is 5-2 I am 6-1 so I am always looking down from above]) like so many other bras she has worn. Although there is no padding, the "smallish" cups give her a youthful lift. Very feminine and extremely sexy lace [ there may be no pucker but there is no hiding either] Ladies buy it for yourself, your man will like you in it. Chris (for spouse) from Ocean Springs, MS

Loved the fit. Will order more. I have had mastectomies and have small breasts. I am very happy with small breasts and do not like padded bras. But I needed something feminine yet supportive and this bra was perfect. Thank you so much! Victoria from Beaverton, Oregon, USA

Normally I'm a 34B, even in Timpa bras. I followed the recommendations and ordered a 34C for this style. The band was too small, so I exchanged it for a 36C. Still too small, and though the cups are very comfortable and fit beautifully as long as I stand up straight and barely move, the minute I wiggle or bend, my nipples start popping out. Irritating.

I love this bra. I have it now in 4 colors! It's the only bra I've had that fits well on my A side breasts. A complaint I have is the quality of the fabric could be better. I would pay more if the stretchy lace were a nicer quality. Lynnae from Chicago, IL

Great look and fit. I paid attention to the reviews and purchased this in a size larger than I normally do. I would recommend doing this for a better fit. Suzi from NV

This bra is AMAZING! I have an athletic build and my girls are on the smaller side but still want to be sexy and it is nearly impossible to find a good bra in my size (38A). This bra fits the bill! LOVE IT! I bought one in every color. Amanda from Colorado

I didn't end up keeping the item, but I liked it. I didn't have a coverage issue, and it was quite comfortable. I think I'm just unused to no lining/padding and appreciate a little extra help. Great for a natural/unpadded look though, if that is what you are going for! I loved the ultra-demi cup and I've ordered one of their padded versions of the bra. Nikki from Fairhaven, MA, USA

Take the warnings about shallow cup size seriously. This bra barely covers my bits (I went up a size according to online recommendation, from 34B to 34 C). It is, however, comfortable and nicely minimal for times when I need that. It's pretty, too. Patty from California
