For this breast shape, any bra will do, although, it might be nice to choose a classic shape such as the T-Shirt bra, to simultaneously support and show off your assets!

Side Set

With this breast type, the breasts point outwards in opposite directions, leaving a gap in between.

This breast shape requires some shaping, to regroup the breasts in the centre of the chest. The perfect bra for this is a T-Shirt bra, as they give the support that is required, while leaving some of the breast uncovered, giving you comfort and freedom.

Relaxed

As the name suggests, breasts in this category typically have lax tissue, making the breasts appear relaxed, and the nipples point downward.

An underwire or push up bra would help this type of breast to feel more lifted and supported, while enhancing cleavage.

Asymmetric

Although you may think this is an odd breast shape, it is a lot more common than you may think! Like eyebrows, your breasts can often be sisters, not twins. Asymmetric breasts do not look perfectly alike; they may be two slightly different sizes.

Padded bras would be a good choice for this bra type, as the padding would even out the appearance of the breasts, making them look more uniform.

Bell

Bell-shaped breasts are beautifully voluptuous at the bottom, and thinner towards the top, hence why they resemble the shape of a bell.

A full coverage or underwire bra would be best for this breast, as this will push the breasts up, giving them support and a rounded, lifted appearance.
