Best Bikini Tops for Smaller Rib Cages

No pair of boobs are quite the same. That’s why, when crafting the ideal bikini top, we made sure to account for actual cup sizes within our sizing metric. If you’re someone with a smaller rib cage, or typically wear bras with band sizes between 28–32 inches, here are our top recommendations for you!


If you have a small rib cage and wear cup sizes A or B, we recommend trying out our Scoop Top and Plunge Top


Our Scoop Top offers our highest support and coverage for a sporty look. This top is one of Kitty’s original styles and has been a fan favorite since the start. We love this top for smaller rib cages and cup sizes because it forms nicely to the chest without any gaping or sagging. 


🔥 Hot Kitty Tip: The Scoop Top doubles as a sports bra – wear on your next jog, yoga session, or for lounging in bed!


Our Plunge Top offers a comfortable and relaxed fit with removable cups. It features adjustable shoulder and back straps for maximum customization. We love this top for smaller rib cages and cup sizes because the v-neckline is super flattering and the removable cups create fullness in the chest area. Try it out in our latest Juju Vibe, a 70s style print made for hot summer nights. 

If you have a small rib cage and wear cup sizes C or D, we recommend trying out our Underwire Top!  


Our Underwire Top is a best-seller for a reason. This chic balconette style swim top offers a retro look and pairs perfectly with any of our bikini bottoms. We love this top for smaller rib cages and medium cup sizes because it lends moderate support for your gals and coverage in all the right places.  


🔥 Hot Kitty Tip: Size down in this top. It runs a tad large!

If you have a small rib cage and wear cup sizes DD+, we recommend trying out our Front Tie Top and Bandeau Top


We designed the Front Tie Top specifically for larger busts and smaller rib cages, so this one’s for you! This bikini top has adjustable shoulder straps and a front tie you can loosen or tighten as much as you please! We especially love this top because of the coverage it lends on the side of your body – no more accidental side boobage here. Get this top in our luxurious Ribbed Fabric in Mango and Black or try it out in our vibes!

 

Our Bandeau Top features built-in cups that provide the most flattering lift and shape to your boobs. We love this top for small rib cages and larger busts because the long tie-back allows you to adjust the top to your perfect rib cage length and the top offers medium support. 

 

🔥 Hot Kitty Tip: Wear it two ways! This top has removable adjustable shoulder straps. Try it with straps for a cute square neck look or strapless to avoid finicky tan lines. 

In general, our best fit across the board for people with smaller rib cages is our Ruffle String Top


Our newest style, the Ruffle String Top, is our MVP for people with small band sizes! Our take on a string bikini actually offers support, coverage, and customization. We threw out the typical halter top ties and offer sliding and adjustable shoulder straps, so you can place them at the desired point along your back. People with smaller busts may try to adjust the straps to be tighter on their body, while people with larger busts might want more room.
