Comments On Breast Shape

Bottom heavy

When your breasts are bottom heavy, you may find that balconette bras fit best as you do not gap at the top. With bottom heavy breasts, you have less breast tissue above the nipple, and may not completely fill out the very top of your cup. Remember it is more important that the underwire is not sitting on your breast tissue, so instead of trying a different size, try a style that does not cover as much of the top of your breast.

 

Breasts that sit close together

Women with breasts that are very close to one another, and who have a lot of natural cleavage may find it easier to fit a bra with a smaller center gore (ie a plunge bra with underwires that do not come up high in the center.)

High chested

Women who are high cheasted have a small distance from teh bottom of their breast to their shoulder. You may fall into this category if you find that you always wear your bras straps on the tightest or if your straps always slip off your shoulder. One way around this is to wear a racer back bra or criss cross your straps. Alternatively you can have a tailor alter your straps to shorten them.
