Breast shape guide


Struggling to find the perfect bra that offers both comfort and style? Understanding your unique breast shape can be a game-changer in your bra shopping experience when purchasing underwear, lingerie, and panties. This comprehensive guide delves into the most common breast shapes and the ideal bra styles to match.

The Journey to the Perfect Bra Starts with Your Shape

Each breast shape has its nuances, and knowing yours can be the key to unlocking unparalleled comfort and confidence. Let’s dive in, starting with the most common shapes.

Round Breasts

If your breasts are equally full at the top and bottom, you have round breasts. For this shape, a balconette bra or an underwire bra usually works best.

Our recommendation: Balconette Bra

Full-Figure Breasts

Full-figure breasts are similar to round breasts but need more support. Choose bras with a wider back band for optimal comfort.

Our recommendation: Full Cup or Push-Up Bras

Teardrop Breasts

Teardrop breasts are round but slightly less full at the top. These breasts are quite versatile and can wear a range of bra styles.

Our recommendation: Balconette or Bralette

Bell-Shaped Breasts

For those with bell-shaped breasts that are fuller at the bottom, a full cup bra offers the essential lift and support.

Our recommendation: Full Cup Bra

Relaxed Breasts

If you have lax tissue and your nipples point downward, your shape is termed as relaxed. Opt for a padded or push-up bra to give a lifted appearance.

Our recommendation: Padded or Push-Up Bra

Athletic Breasts

With less tissue and more muscle, athletic breasts often lack volume. A push-up bra is a great option for adding some curves.

Our recommendation: Push-Up Bra

Side-Set Breasts

If you notice a wider gap between your breasts, they are side-set. A plunge or balconette bra can help close the distance.

Our recommendation: Plunge or Balconette Bra

East-West Breasts

If your nipples point outward and your breasts sit more on the sides, you have East-West breasts. A padded or t-shirt bra works wonders for this shape.

Our recommendation: Padded or T-Shirt Bra

Asymmetrical Breasts

If one breast is slightly larger than the other, you have asymmetrical breasts. A padded bra with removable pads will help create a balanced look.

Our recommendation: Padded Bra
