The best bra style for a woman depends on her breast shape and the bra size.
If your breasts have less than 1 finger gap between them, then you should wear bras that have a low wire or wirefree so that the wires don’t poke your breasts. If you have greater than 2 finger gap, then you can wear bras with any kind of wiring.
If your breasts are full and round shaped, then you should wear bras which have high coverage to prevent the breasts from spilling out of the bra cups.
If you are on the curvy side with bra sizes bigger than D cup, then you can try minimiser bras or super support bras which are designed to give curvy women the right support. If your breasts are sagging, then you can try our No Sag bras to give your breasts just a little bit of lift.
