Breast shape is a contributor to bra fit which is not often considered.

FullEdit

Full breasts are round and equally full everywhere. Those with full breasts struggle "quad-boob", even when they have a bra that properly fits, because bras cause spill-over by cutting into the breast tissue.

Best bras for full breasts
  • A demi-cup bra is low cut to avoid quad-boob effect.
  • A balconette bra has a square neckline that falls mid-breast.
  • A full-cup bra covers your full breast and will avoid cutting across the fullest part.
  • A bra with an elastic top can make the shape appear more streamlined.
Worst bras for full breasts
  • A bra that cuts across the fullest part of your breast will create quad-boob.[3]
  • A bra with stiff lace or a tight seam at the top can create quad-boob.

Full on bottomEdit

Full on bottom (FOB) breasts have most of the breast tissue in the lower-half of the breast.[4]

Best bras for full on bottom breasts

  • A balconette bra with a tight upper-cup will contain the breasts and prevent gaping.

Full on bottom and full on top breasts can be many shapes, but nipple placement is usually an easy tell.[5]

Full on topEdit

PearEdit

Your breasts are pear-shaped if they're fuller on the bottom half and your nipples are slightly pointing downwards.

Best bras for pear-shaped breasts
  • A molded-cup bra will shape and lift the breast.
  • A padded bra can enhance your breast size and reduce the appearance of sagging by making them look fuller.
  • A padded T-shirt bra is soft and has full coverage, so that will make your breasts look more firm.
Worst bras for pear-shaped breasts
  • A full-cup bra will not be filled our by your shape at the top, and it will gap.
  • A balconette bra may not make your breasts look as perky and attractive as you would like, as they're not super firm.[3]

PointedEdit

Pointed breasts have a sloping shape at the top, with pointy nipples, and they need extra help in order to retain a rounded shape.

Best bras for pointed breasts
  • A molded-cup T-shirt bra will reduce nipple show and round out the shape.
  • A padded bra can encourage a rounder shape.
  • A padded push-up bra pushes breasts up and together.
Worst bras for pointed breasts
  • A plunge bra will simply make your breasts fall forward, out of the bra.[3]

AugmentedEdit

If you've had a breast augmentation, you can wear near any bra style without worrying about a compromised shape.

Best bras for augmented breasts
  • A bandeau is a type of soft, wrap-around strapless bra.
  • An adhesive bra is perfect for strapless dresses.
  • A strapless bra works for tube tops.
  • No bra will work for you, as you don't have to worry about drooping.
  • A sports bra is still important for exercise, or the skin surrounded your breasts will lose its tautness.[3]

ShallowEdit

If your breast tissue is very spread out all over your chest without having a lot of projection you are shallow-shaped. This shape often occurs in smaller cupsizes from A-DD, but has also been observed in a lot larger cupsizes (28H UK, 32G UK, 36GG UK). With this shape, you might not feel the need of wearing a bra. Your options differ on whether you wish to simply avoid nipple chafing or want to appear larger.

A Bra That Fits has an ongoing project to determine what bras work, and don't work, for shallow shapes[6]

  • Shallow shaped breasts need bras that are very open on top
  • Many padded and some unpadded halfcups work well for a shallow shape
  • A padded bra can enhance your size and look natural.
  • A bandeau has simple coverage to avoid nipple chafing.
  • A shaped camisole works well to avoid constriction and nipple chafing.
Worst bras for shallow breasts
  • A push-up bra will make your breasts look enhanced unnaturally.[3]
  • Plunges often have a very closed rim that will cut in on many women with this shape
  • unpadded 3/4 cups with narrow wires and deep cups

ProjectedEdit

Wide-setEdit

Wide-set breasts have natural middle gap with a the space narrower at top than at the bottom.

Best bras for wide-set breasts
  • A balconette bra will lift and round-out your shape.
  • A plunge bra will naturally help your breasts fall toward the middle, and they sometimes have padding to better assist with his goal.
  • A padded molded-cup bra will fit your breasts into a specific shape.
  • A push-up bra will pushes breasts up and together.
  • A padded push-up will give your breasts an ideal shape, as well as push them up and together.
Worst bras for wide-set breasts
  • A bra that simply pushes your breasts together might look forced.[3]

Close-setEdit

If your breasts are close-set, you have issues with gores being too wide and not sitting flat against your sternum.

Best bras for close-set breasts
  • A bra with a very narrow or very low center gore will work well, or you can try to narrow a center gore yourself.
Worst bras for close-set breasts
  • Full-cup bras typically have wider center gores.
  • Any bras with a wide center gore, regardless of cut, will not tack.[3]
