So you know your size but find that even so some bras just don’t seem a perfect fit. Well while we may share a size, our shapes can be different – some of us have narrow shoulders and others wider set breasts, for example. There are different style bras that particularly suit certain shapes. And the good news is Figleaves’ best-oselling Juliette Lace collection is designed with this in mind. And it’s super pretty to and runs to a GG cup.
Ideal for… Fuller or wider set breasts that need to be lifted and supported
If… You have slightly narrow shoulders, this style might not be the best for your shape. Try a plunge or full cup instead.
Key features… Wide set straps, horizontal neckline, support from the base of the cup lifting the breasts, underwired
Works well with… Low cut square necklines
Ideal for… Breasts where nipples face ‘east west’
If… You have a very full breast, moulded styles might dig in a little so opt for a non-padded version with a stretch top cup
Key features… Creates a smooth and seamfree look, padded moulded cups ensure no nipple show through, underwired, comfortable for all day/everyday wear
Works well with… Styles where a traditional bra may show lines and bumps through your top
Ideal for… Most shapes but especially so for those of us with one breast bigger than the other as it’s stretchy
If… You want to avoid nipple show through opt for a t-shirt style instead
Key features… Semi sheer stretchy cups, lightweight and easy to wear, underwired
Works well with… Most clothing, although with tight fitting clothing there may be nipple show through
Maternity and nursing bra
Ideal for… The changes your body go through during pregnancy and then nursing
