The 30 and Below Bra Band Project

Are you a 30, 28, or 26 (or even smaller) band? Did you know that, at least in the U.S., even the big-name bra companies believe that there is no market for your bra size? Or that if you wear a band size that’s 30 or under, you must be a “junior”? Do you want to do something to challenge this way of thinking?

A group of us (including Braless in Brasil, StackDD, By Baby’s Rules, and Bras I Hate) have decided to come up with a project that debunks this myth. Here’s the basic 411 to our plan:

“Recently at the Curve Expos in both New York and Las Vegas, brands that cater to large-busted women suggested that 30 bands and under were either for juniors, or that there was no market for them.  However, that is simply not the case. There are many women out there who need 30 bands and under, and we are not all juniors.  While we come in all different shapes and sizes, we all have a small back size in common.
To prove that we are not all juniors and that we exist as a market, we have decided to create the Bra Band Project where we are looking for photos of women who wear 30 bands or under. We will make a flickr album and eventually a collage with our photos to show that we are not just juniors, but women of all shapes and sizes that need small bands.
We’d love your help, so please submit your own photo and band size using the form below or email it to  Note we need both your bra size and your photo. We cannot include a submission without both of those. If you are a blogger who would like to help out with this project email us at”

Please use the form below if you’d like to be a part of this project! All we need is a photo, a bra size, and an age (if you want to share). The photo can be of you in everyday clothing or in your undies, either works. It’s completely anonymous – we’ll crop out faces if you don’t have a picture that’s just neck-down. It’s open to anyone who’s a 30 band or under, blogger or not, and to any blogger who wants to help out/repost.
[Update: Please note that you need to be at least 18 for us to use your photo.]

We hope it will serve as an eye-opener for companies (and anyone else) who believe that there is no market for 30-and-under bands, or think that small bands are exclusively for young girls. As always, let me know if you have any questions!
