Finding the right bra for your breast shape

The best bras for your boobs for Valentine’s Day and beyond

Every pair of breasts is different and unique. And whilst we proudly celebrate our individuality, it doesn’t always make finding the right bra that looks nice, keeps us comfortable and secures our boobs easy to achieve. So, with that in mind and with Valentine’s Day coming up, we have put together a short guide on how to select the perfect bra to ensure your girls are given the respect and support they deserve. Let’s take a look at these lovely bras for different breast shapes.


Think breasts where there is less upper cleavage and the shape gently slopes down towards the nipple.

Best bra for this shape: If you are looking to even out the shape of your breasts then a demi bra with wide wider straps would be the answer. If fullness is something you want to achieve then a push-up bra with crescent padding will help push the lower part of the breast up.There are so many beautiful bras for shallow breasts.

Wide-set breasts

Wide-set or splayed breasts are when your boobs don’t naturally sit together and drift towards the east and west of your body.

Best bra for this shape: To help bring your breasts closer together you ideally want to look towards a triangular bra with some underwiring to help your breasts fit more comfortably in front. Equally, side support panels will also help push your cleavage closer together.Take a look at a couple of our favourite bras for wide set breasts.

This shape is more prominent in women who are a C-cup or smaller. Your breast will be shaped more like a cone as opposed to a round shape.

Best bra for this shape: When you’re looking for a good bra for conical breasts, bear in mind that for added comfort you’ll need a fully padded bra. The T-shirt bra is the best style for conical-shaped breasts.

Uneven/asymmetrical breasts

Believe it or not, nearly half of women have one breast which is bigger than the other. So, it’s completely natural to have asymmetrical breasts.
