9 types of boobs: Your guide to Valentine’s Day underwear
We are all different and so are our boobs!
This means that when it comes to choosing that gorgeous new Valentine’s Day underwear set for a romantic night in or a table for two, we want to feel the best, most confident version of ourselves in lingerie that flatters and enhances our assets.
Round boobs, slender boobs, bell boobs…our best girlfriends all come in different shapes and sizes. Here are the Valentine’s Day lingerie styles which we are recommending for your twinnies based on your boob type:
If your girls are close together and equally full at the top and the bottom, then they probably fit into the round category. As the most enviable shape, they are usually self-supporting without a bra so it’s not surprising that round implants are traditionally the most popular option when it comes to choosing the shape of your new boobies.
From balconette to bandeau, this means that almost any style of Valentine’s Day underwear will do! If you’re feeling flirty, even go without a bra and choose a delicate pair of French knickers instead.
It’s worth nothing that although round boobs are most associated with having a breast enlargement, round implants can look just as natural as teardrop shaped ones especially if they are placed under the muscle.
East/west boobs are what they say on the tin! If your boobs or nipples face in opposite directions, then this is you, gal.
On the regular, a trusty t-shirt bra will be your go-to if you have east/west boobs for smoothing over the shape and pulling them that little bit closer together. But who wants to go for the comfortable option on Valentine’s Day? Date night calls for lingerie that makes you feel gorgeous so try a front-opener for an extra bit of sass, positioning your girls forwards and choosing an extra thick side band to lift them up and together.
3. Side Set
If you’re a side set girl, then your boobs are very similar to your east/west counterpart in that they aren’t totally joint at the hip but are slightly fuller in their overall shape.
Come February 14th, opt for a plunge style bra to push them up and pull them closer together to create that beautiful cleavage which will look amazing in your favourite LBD or a red number with heels.
If you a natural teardrop, you’re a lucky gal… when it comes to breast surgery, more and more women are requesting teardrop shaped implants because they are said to resemble the natural boob silhouette the most by being subtly fuller at the bottom than the top.
So, when you’re picking your Valentine’s Day intimates, most styles will suit you so it really depends on what outfit you are planning. For a no-fuss, sexy date look, why not try a delicate fashion bralette under a blazer teamed with leather look trousers and a killer heel?
Slender breasts have three main characteristics – being slimmer at the top, fuller at the bottom and longer than they are wide.
As slender boobies are often small in cup size, you might especially want to create the illusion of a larger cleavage on the most romantic night of the year, so go for plunge bra styles with an added push up to enhance your beauties.
As your beauty therapist may have told you, eyebrows are sisters, not twins. Well, the same applies to our boobs, and most women all have one breast that is slightly bigger than the other, it’s not a biggie.
But if one of your breasts have always been considerably bigger, then a good push up bra can give the support and lift you need to balance out the asymmetry which can create a beautiful silhouette in a fitted dress style.
7. Bell Shape
Bell shape boobies are much like slender boobs in their shape except they are bigger in size. Typically, the best bras for bell boobs would be supportive, with extra wide and adjustable straps to provide lots of lift. This would include full coverage, full cup bras, non-padded wired support bras and not forgetting, a comfortable t-shirt bra.
But on Valentine’s Day, choose a matching set made up of delicate briefs and a pretty full-cup bra full of detailing or an all-black, lace set depending on your style.
Of course, you can have a naturally athletic frame but this being said, lots of our gorgeous gym bunnies tell us that they have lost volume in their breasts and have athletic boobs. These types of boobs are wide, muscular in shape and usually relatively small in cup size with little breast tissue.
So, if you’re planning something special with your significant other, you might want to enhance your cleavage with a push-up padded style to create the illusion of a fuller chest under lower necklines.
Relaxed boobs are defined by their lack of firmness or if your nipples are facing downwards. You might have naturally relaxed breasts, but a lot of the time our boobs relax their shape and lose volume after breastfeeding or simply due to the natural ageing process.
If your boobs need support, we would recommend full coverage bras with thick, adjustable straps to give you lift and shape, which will look perfect in your Valentine’s Day dress.
