Lula Lu makes it their mission to find pretty, perfect-fit bras for the small-busted among us, so that you don't have to. Forget hunting around stocked department store shelves or trolling online for a petite-fit coverage, we're talking AAA, AA, and A cup sizes. Lula Lu's entire site is devoted to the small-chested, and each piece is thoroughly tested for quality and fit, so you don't have to worry about that either.
Don't be fooled by the name: Top Secret's bras ($30 to $58) are totally meant to be exposed. In fact, that's their sole purpose.

Some highlights include crisscross satin straps, bedazzled tube styles, and sweet lace details.

Colorful pieces will not only brighten your wardrobe, they can also flatter your shape. Whether you want to accentuate those curves or look slimmer, here are three easy ways you can use color to play up your best assets. For a highlighted waist, pair an LBD with a bright belt like Gabrielle Union. The bold color against a dark backdrop draws eyes to the narrowest part of your midsection. Want to elongate your legs? Place the belt a little bit higher on your waist. For more hot color tips, check out the April issue of InStyle, on newsstands now — and click on for the other two tips to flatter your figure with color.

Shapers: They're not the most beautiful things, but such a necessity! They help stop the jiggle effect, especially when wearing fitted dresses and skirts. The only problem is that they tend to be on the pricier side, especially the Spanx brand. I was helping a friend update her work wardrobe recently when a lightbulb went off in my head. She needed shaper shorts for her new dress but didn't want to spend $50.

The OverBra is the new shapewear idea that shapes your bust and accentuates your cleavage. Think of it as a vest for your bra — only it's not meant to be seen. It comes in four styles — original, midriff, longline, slip — and each does a slightly different task. The original, pictured below, is mainly to flatten back bulges and enhance cleavage. The midriff takes care of tummy creases, the longline is good for tummy and hip coverage, and the slip is perfect for under dresses. Since it's a brand-new concept, it's slightly confusing; check out the how to wear it section then see where to buy it. Intrigued or insane?
