Breast Shapes

Breast shapes
Sometimes it's hard to see what breast shape you have when you're naked, so it's best to figure this out when you try on a bra. Remember: multiple breast shapes could apply to you.

  • Narrow roots, Pendulant breasts

When you have narrow roots and pendulant breasts, that means that the part where your breasts are attached to your body is narrow. In this case you might need a bra that has narrow wires and deeper cups. This shape is very common when you have a small band size and a larger cup size. 

How To Check:

-You're wearing the correct bra size and you've adjusted your breast tissue correctly in the cup but you still have space at the back of the wires by your armpits 

-If when you go a size down you overflow at the top of the cups, that means that the wire is too wide and the cup is too shallow. 

Try a different brand: The famous Polish brand Ewa Michalak works very well for narrow breast roots and pandulant breasts

  • Wide roots, Shallow breasts¬†

Wide roots and shallow breasts means that your breast tissue is distributed over a larger surface of the breast. The part where your breasts are attached to your body is wide. 

How To Check:

-When you are wearing the correct bra size and you've adjusted your breast tissue correctly in the cup but the wire is still poking in the breast tissue 

-Then when you go a size up you can't fill out the cups, that means that the wire is too narrow and the cup is too deep. 

Try a different brand: Natori and Skarlett Blue work very well for the A-E (DDD) sizes. Elomi works very well for the E (DDD) and up sizes. 

  • Close set breasts

Close set breasts mean that your breasts are close to each other‚ÄĒa blessing and a curse! You can get that vavavoom cleavage that a lot of people desire and admire *but* the part of the bra where the wire comes together in the middle, aka the gore, might poke you. In this case you need a plunge bra. Plunge bras have lower gores and therefore won't irritate your breasts where they meet.¬†

  • Full up top

When you are full up top you might be blessed with natural "Bridgerton" boobage. However, some bras might give you a double boob or an indentation on top, even though you're wearing the correct size. This usually happens when you are full up top and don't wear a bra that moves easily with your body, like bras with a (stretch) seam on top of the cup or a T-shirt bra. 
In this case, try a bra with stretch-lace or stretchy mesh.

  • Full on the bottom

When you are full in the bottom a bra could fit perfectly but leave a little space in the top. Balconettes or demis will work best if you are full on the bottom.
