Bra shopping is not all about the right size but the breast shape contributes as well to the comfort and right fit to the body. Choosing a bra style according to your breast shape will definitely flatter your chest and overall figure appearance. It has an impact on how lingerie will look and fit on you.
Below are the nine unique breast shapes and the recommended bra styles for each:
If you find your breasts point out away from your torso and there’s a noticeable gap between the two, it is called East West. For women with this breast type, a push-up bra is recommended to help gather the breast tissue in the front of the body. T-shirt bra, strapless, and front-closure are also great. We recommend Front Closed Butterfly Lace X-Back Underwire Push-Up bra from Sofyee.
Side set shape
When comparing with East West, the boobs obviously fall away from the center of the torso but the difference between the two shapes is the noticeable fuller gap. A woman with this breast needs little more dramatic than a t-shirt bra. She can try wearing a larger cup size than usual. T-shirt and push-up bra are recommended.
This is considered as the ideal type of breast. Characteristically, the bottom of the breasts is fuller compared to the top. If your breasts are round but slightly less full on top, then all bra styles work for you. Any cute bras will fit this type of breast and even Kawaii lingerie is a good fit.
If your breasts sit on the smaller end of the scale and they are wider at the top than they are the at the bottom, then this is your breast type. To make it clear, the lady has thinner boobs and her nipples are pointing downward. Why not try a plunge bra? Because this will lift and push the breasts to the center of the chest. Bras with front closures and wireless are great options.
If you find your boobs narrower at the top compared to the bottom part, or if the bottom is fuller compared to the top part, then you have a bell shape breasts. You only need an ample amount of lift and coverage. They should avoid wearing avoid balconette bras. T-shirt Bra is your best bet. The t-shirt bra is recommended for this breast shape because its wire and cups provide good lift and help to set them in the cups properly.
If a woman has wider and noticeable muscular boobs, then her breast shape is called Athletic. One of the best options for bra style for this boob shape is the classing push-up bra because it creates a curvy illusion. However, a wire-free bra will also be a great choice since it can offer comfort with its thick band, keeping the bra in place and providing gentle support.
You have around boob when the top and the bottom parts are equal. Balconette bras are recommended for ladies with round boobs. Other options are a t-shirt and strapless bras.
There are two signs that you have relaxed breasts. One, if your nipples that point downwards is one sign that you have relaxed breasts. Two is if the tissue in the breasts feels quite lax, this is another indicator. A push-up bra will help to lift the breasts and give you some confidence-boosting shape. T-shirt Bra and racerback can also provide a bit of lift.
