DON’T PATRONIZE: TOKYO BUST EXPRESS REVIEWS DIFFERENT SHAPES OF A WOMAN’S BREASTS
|What shape does your bra need to be?|
It is fairly common for most of us to say that there are only two kinds of boobs—big or small—but did you know that women can have one of seven different sets of bust shapes and it is fairly common? Most bra shops that you can take seriously will offer women bras sorted by styles (besides size) so knowing your shape can help you understand how best to take care of them.
Round: Equally full on top and bottom; often surgically enhanced, but not always.
Look best in: Balconette styles, which show off your perky shape. Consider round boobs to bras as the oval face to haircuts: Lucky you, your breasts can pull off anything.
Asymmetric: One breast is larger than the other; ranges from barely noticeable to more pronounced
Look best in: Bras with removable pads. You can wear a pad (or more) on the smaller breast to even out your bust line.
Bell Shape: Generally heavier breasts; narrower at the top, then considerably fuller toward the bottom.
Look best in: Full-cover styles. Because the boobs are heavier, they can drag down the shoulders, causing the straps to slip (and reduce support).
Tear Drop: Similar to Bell Shape but with a much gentler slope; easily identifiable from the side.
Look best in: Plunge styles, with or without push-up material. The deeper neckline and cups create lift, which helps fill in the shallower top of the breasts.
Slender: A little wider at the top, narrower at the bottom; generally skinny without a lot of breast tissue.
Look best in: Plunge styles, with or without push-up padding. The plunge helps pull the boobs toward the middle to create a bit of cleavage.
“East West”: A gentle slope from top to bottom, but out to the sides; nipples point in opposite directions.
Look best in: Push-up styles, which flatter your natural shape while comfortably bringing your bust close together.
Side Set: A wide space in between the two breasts; nipples point a little more forward than”East West”.
Look best in: Balconette styles, which have more fabric above the cups to disguise the larger gap between breasts.
