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.
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.
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 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 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
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
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
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
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
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
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
