I have small boobs and I tried Pepper bras. Here’s what happened.

Q&A - 2 min read

Rachael, 34aa

We had a quick Q&A with Rachael on how Pepper has completely changed her experience with bras as a small-chested woman.

What was your experience with bra shopping before Pepper?

I used to joke that bra shopping was my favorite way to hate myself. It was beyond discouraging. On the rare occasion where I actually found a bra in my size, I would have next to no variety in styles or colors, and even though it was "my size" I would still walk around with cup gaps.

How does wearing a Pepper bra make you feel compared to other bras?

My jaw literally dropped the first time I put one on. It just felt so good to finally be seen and experience what I felt like I had been missing out on for years. I started my Pepper journey like everyone else- I saw an ad, was skeptical, but figured I'd just go for it. Pepper ended up giving me the comfort and confidence that no other bra has ever come close to giving.

What were some factors in society and media that influenced how you viewed your body?

It's hard to not compare yourself to people on TV or social media, especially when we live in a society that is so critical of women. I was definitely influenced by the media growing up, but not nearly as bad as I imagine kids are today. I try to remind myself that almost everything we see online is a fabricated version of reality.

What has been your journey around body image and self love?

I struggled a lot with body image growing up, largely due to my chest size. In high school and early college, I struggled a lot and spent so much time hating my body. With some great therapy through the years and lots of inner work, I am happy to now love my body and all she does for me. Some days are harder than others, but I think it's important to know that you're never alone. We spend too much time criticizing ourselves and not enough time embracing all of the beautiful things that our bodies do for us.

Which Pepper bra is your favorite and why?

I really love them all, but I probably wear the Limitless Wirefree Bra the most. It's the most comfortable bra I've ever owned! So soft with just enough padding.

“I have a physical disability. Because of my body shape
and how little disabled bodies are represented in the
bra industry, bra shopping has always been a huge
challenge for me. I’ve never felt more sexy wearing
these bras by @wearpepper that fit me *perfectly*”

"My pre teen and teenage years were rough. If you're like me you have always struggled with finding the right bra. Cup gaps, wiring that hurts like hell and scarcity of comfy options that provide a lift. So here's me in their limitless bra which has become my favorite bra to wear."
