Best Bras for Wide-Set Breasts

BEST BRAS FOR WIDE-SET BREASTS

FIT EXPERTS

Like snowflakes, no two breasts are the same. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and placements that (while beautifully unique) can make bra shopping difficult if you don’t know what you’re looking for. For women with wide-set breasts, the challenge of finding a perfectly fitting bra is even more tricky since not all bra styles offer the shape and support they need. That’s why we’ve put together our list of the best bras for wide-set breasts. Keep reading to find out our top bra styles and picks for wide-set breasts, plus key features to look for in a bra

But first, what are wide-set breasts?

Wide-set breasts are when your breasts point in different directions. They tend to splay outwards away from one another, creating a gap between the breasts, which can make it difficult to find the perfect bra. An easy way to see if you have wide-set breasts is to place your fingers flat on your sternum while standing braless. If you can fit more than 3 fingers across without touching any breast tissue, you have wide-set breasts.

Women with wide-set breasts may struggle to find a bra that provides enough (if any) cleavage. They can also struggle to find a comfortable fit because the bulk of their breast volume splays outward toward the outer edge of the cup, which can inevitably lead to gaping and spillage.

What to look for in a bra if you have wide-set breasts

Side supports

Because the bulk of the breast tissue sways outwards towards the sides of your bra, having a bra with good side supports is key. Side supports are great for women with wide-set breasts because they bring your breasts closer together and minimise the gaps between breasts. A plunge bra style will offer the best side supports, helping to centre your breasts.

Wide Gore

When shopping for bras for wide-set breasts, look for styles with a wide gore (aka a wide band separating the bra cups). Essentially, wide gores work to fill the space between the cups creating a more balanced appearance. This feature is perfect for those with wide-set breasts because the cups will start where your breasts naturally start to minimise the probability of gaping.

What are the best bras for wide-set breasts?

Plunge Bras

Plunge bras are one of the best bra styles if you have wide-set breasts. This bra style has a lower neckline and angled cups, which help to pull the breasts closer together and enhance your cleavage. By bringing the breasts closer together and minimising the gap between them, a plunge bra helps create the look of rounder, fuller breasts. Because the bulk of the cup is centred on the outside of the breasts, it provides great coverage for wide-set breasts.

Bralettes

Bralettes are another good style for those with wide-set breasts. While bralettes might not be as supportive as other bra styles, it’s definitely one of the most comfortable. Underwired bras can be an uncomfortable option for women with wide-set breasts, so a wire-free option like a bralette might be a better choice. Bralettes are often made from a slim-fitted, stretchy material that hugs your breasts. The closely knit fabric minimises any gaping because the bra stretches and forms to your body.


Can you create cleavage if you have wide-set breasts?

This is the ultimate struggle for women with wide-set breasts, as they find it more difficult to find a bra that enhances their cleavage. But, with the right bra, you’ll be able to get the cleavage of your dreams! Push-up plunge bras are ideal for boosting the appearance of your cleavage because they simultaneously lift the breasts upwards and inwards. 

Women with wide-set breasts can also create cleavage by scooping and swooping the breasts inwards and upwards after putting on a bra. This helps move the breasts fully inside the cup, so the bra can better lift and centre the breasts.
