Many bra companies like to pretend that sub-28 sizes do not exist. However, many women really do wear bra bands sized 20, 22, 24, and 26. Some even smaller. Keep in mind, the material will stretch. Unfortunately, because the bra companies like to pretend that smaller bands do not exist since it is more profitable to them, it is almost impossible to find those sizes. Your best bets are to get a bra altered, which may not work because of the wires and how they might then dig in to your body. If you have a bra tailored, get a bra that is up one band size and down two cup sizes. As band and cups are proportionate to one another, a cup on a larger band will have larger wires. This is why you will want the smaller cups, for the smaller wires. *Cup sizes above D tend to vary significantly between manufacturers, so check with the retailer or look for customer reviews before you buy online.
“A good high-waisted moment can make your butt look like it’s starring in its own ’90s Calvin Klein commercial,” according to former Strategist writer and current Self editor Lori Keong, who says this high-rise Everlane pair will do the trick. “These slide right up to your navel, hug but don’t squeeze your midrange, and don’t lose their shape or bunch up around your hips during the day,” she says. “They flatter your waist and hug your curves, but don’t pinch at the waistline like other elastic briefs or ride up.” They pass the VPL test, too. “You’d have to be really squinting to detect any VPL,” Keong says.
Thong: Giving you the least amount of coverage, a thong has just a strip of fabric in the back to prevent panty lines from showing through clothes. According to Dr. Dweck, they're totally safe as long as they're not too tight. "The right thong with a cotton crotch and non-chafing 'G-string' that fits well is not a problem for those who prefer them," she advises.
