Finding the right bra

What Bra Is Right For Me?

Choosing between bras is hard and it can often be a long and drawn out process. Of course, all this effort is worth it in the end – but how can you make sure you select the right bra for you?

If you’re small busted

If you have small boobs, you probably want to maximise what you have. In this situation, the push-up bra is your best friend. Choose an under-wired variety for maximum lift. Something padded will also help you feel as if your boobs are bigger than they are and so this would be a good option for you.

Smaller breasted women also have the option of wearing a bandeau bra without worrying about a lack of support, so if you fancy something different, a bandeau bra is a great option. There’s also the added advantage that you may even be able to get away without wearing a bra if you buy a supportive tee, not something that every woman can appreciate.  If you really are trying to maximise your cleavage though, choosing a padded, push up bra with a halter neck will draw attention to your boobs, making them appear larger. 

If you’re large busted

A big problem for larger busted women is the issue of support. You need to opt for an under-wired bra for maximum security, particularly if you are prone to back ache or shoulder pain. If you are worried about looking saggy, or about the shape of your boobs in general, you may be best to opt for a thinly padded bra. If the padding is thin, it will not make the bust appear larger, but padding can help improve shape which is always a plus. You may also want to look into a bra that helps to separate the breasts to try to avoid the cleavage looking too full.

If you’re athletic

If you’re sporty, then you’ll know that a good sports bra is essential to avoid days of back and breast pain afterwards. It has been proven that exercising without a sports bra can be damaging to breast tissue, so this is a choice that you definitely want to get right. Most sports bras tend to squash the boobs against the chest and these are often a good choice for people with smaller breasts. However, now there are also sports bras that lift, separate, and squash the boobs - specifically made for larger breasted ladies.
