u/BridgetteBane · 112 pointsr/xxfitness

I really like the Panache sports bra. It's like a tactical boob holster.

u/cricketthehorsecat · 93 pointsr/AskWomen

I use these Nippies - they're adhesive and reusable. I have several summer dresses that are incompatible with bras, so that's when I use them most - I've had my pair since 2014. They conceal both color and headlights.

u/LiquidGirl_ · 86 pointsr/egg_irl

I can hook you up! I've found the Amazon brand Feminique is great in terms of squishiness and roundness. They're pretty cheap compared to everything else, and look mighty convincing under clothing.

u/Gluestick05 · 65 pointsr/AskWomen

I just got an underwired sports bra in my real size and holy shit it's like angels are holding up my boobs. Even Mr. Gluestick was surprised by its power--"what are those things doing all the way up here?!" were his exact words.

u/imaginaryideals · 53 pointsr/ABraThatFits

You should check the sidebar and measure yourself with the ABTF calculator. I don't know what kind of measuring guide JCPenney's provides, but a lot of mainstream stores use the +4 method, which is more likely to give you an uncomfortable bra size.

I noticed in another comment of yours that you mention wires poking out of your bras from stress. When I had this happen with my old bras, it was before I started wearing my correct size. Since switching from 34C to 30E/F, I haven't had similar issues.

If you have a Nordstrom Rack nearby, I strongly recommend checking it. Nonstandard sizes can be found on their clearance racks, although like all clearance items, YMMV for finding what you want. But it's a good way to find cheap bras. If you don't have one nearby but are in the US, Amazon, Bare Necessities and Bravissimo are good places to look online. Bare Necessities currently has a sale going on.

As for sports bras that have bra sizes, I personally wear Panache's underwire sports bra, and I like it. However, from my normal 30E/F, I went up a band size to 32E. If I tried my regular size in their sports bra it would be uncomfortably tight.

u/jkkldfgjklfkl · 43 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Have you thought about trying different styles of bras? I have a little mini wardrobe of bras to wear with different things based on how in-your-face I want my boobs to be. In particular I think unlined bras (I like [Panache Andorra]( but ABTF can give you lots of shape-specific recommendations) give me a nice shape which is uplifted and contained but still soft so I don't feel like I've got two coconuts on my chest.

u/krustykauli · 31 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

On a similar note, I am also as bra-free as possible, but find myself using silicon nude-colored pasties (something like this) when I really want to wear a certain shirt and it's not socially/professionally appropriate to show my nipples. Highly recommend!! None of the constraint and looks entirely like you're wearing a bra. Stick incredibly well. A+

u/[deleted] · 27 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Hey, I'm somebody who goes braless on occasion and has very pointy nips. Have you considered something like these?

They tend to stay put pretty well, and honestly, if you're comfortable without a bra at your size there's not really any reason to wear one, especially since your size would be very hard to find. That's just my opinion. :)

If you really want a bra, though, of course you should look for them.

u/Iophobic · 27 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I've been there. I found that buying actual running shoes and workout clothes (rather than wearing old college tees and cotton leggings) was a great motivator. I told myself that I didn't buy these things just to have them go to waste (and a small part of me liked showing off my ~fabulous shoe and shirt combos~). As I started exercising more, my matching game became A++ and I invested in more expensive items (specifically, a good, supportive sports bra)

I would start off buying cheaper workout clothes rather than diving into "nicer" brands like Lululemon. Old Navy and Target (and apparently Forever21?) have great affordable options. I've also gotten great deals at TJ Maxx, Marshalls and outlet stores

u/awkward_exchanges · 22 pointsr/AskWomen

Nippies are my favorite, and are reusable

u/bluecirc · 22 pointsr/fatlogic

I just got these. Fleece lined leggings are amazing!

u/Iamamomwithsnacks · 21 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Sometimes I like the silicone nipple pasties(pros: reusable, comfortable, smooth, skin like. cons: expensive, sometimes thick and visible): one, the petals tend to blend better

But then other times I want something simpler, so I go for the paper-y, one use ones. You can find these with all adhesive and with no adhesive in the middle if your nips are sensitive. one two

I only go braless in really loose tops, or really snug ones that help shape my boobs a little. Or in clothing where a bra would show(fancy dresses, hellooo).

As far as nipples in our culture, I don't really want to see your whole entire boob hanging out of your shirt in public, but I won't die if I do see it. I don't take a stance, really, on the whole "men can walk around shirtless but women can't and that's wrong" debate.

Wear your shirt, don't wear your shirt, wear a bra, don't wear a bra--unless you're trying to be sexual to my toddler, it doesn't bother me.

u/triedtosay · 21 pointsr/weddingplanning

It looks like you don't need a whole lot of support, just nipple coverage? If so, and if the cups are sewn on top of the lining, you could carefully remove them yourself and just use stick on covers like these.
I use them all the time, and they are SO comfortable, you won't even know they're there. I'll be using them on my wedding day (I have a similar neckline to yours, also backless).

u/Rouknette · 20 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Get nipple covers. They are simple and usually pretty cheap and will act as a barrier between you and the elements. I don't know if you're particularly hairy but if you are I do suggest removing the hair around your nipples as they usually attach with a mild adhesive and that doesn't bode well for fuzzy people. You could probably wear a bra but it would need to be pretty padded and fit flush against your skin to lessen the irritation. If possible let them heal first if there is any visible chafing/bleeding.

Here are some cheap silicone ones on Amazon; they're only 2.99.

u/CrackpotJackpot · 19 pointsr/bigboobproblems

If you want something super supportive that doesn't hide things and won't give you the squashed-down uniboob look, check out the Panache underwired sports bra -- but only once you've been properly fitted!

u/vgirl94 · 18 pointsr/Showerthoughts

Totally! I use them on a regular basis. They are awesome unless you will be sweating, then they slip. Lots of people sell them, but here is an easy link: Undercover Silicone Nipple Covers Gel Petals Pasties

u/weesheep · 17 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Try panache underwire sports bra.
It comes in so many sizes and is great for high impact. I couldn’t recommend it more! I think they also make a non wired one if that’s what you are looking for, I’ve never tries that though.

u/ikoabd · 16 pointsr/xxfitness

This sports bra literally changed my life. I can run, jump rope, jumping jack without fearing giving myself a black eye. I echo the others, head over to /r/ABraThatFits and check your size, and then immediately get this bra.

u/velvedire · 14 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide


They're expensive up front but last forever. Just wash them as necessary.

u/chadnik · 14 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Just depends on your preference. Personally, I heartily support freeboobing. If you want a bra but don't want your straps to show, you can wear a strapless or bandeau bra. If you don't need support but don't want your nipples to show, use pasties like Nippies.

u/imabratinfluence · 14 pointsr/bigboobproblems

If you don't want to squash them, avoid "compression bras" and look for "encapsulation bras." Encapsulation bras will have separate cups, like this Freya Active, Panache Sport, and Panache Sport Non-wired.

u/wicksa · 13 pointsr/badwomensanatomy

Yasss! Get yourself this bra. It's in UK sizing though so make sure you aren't using US sizing. And it runs a little tight so you might have to sister size up for comfort. But it's true, it keeps those things in their place.

u/cheerupchum · 12 pointsr/cringe

Girl these are cutlettes. They clearly fall out as two separate pieces. There is no reason she would need to wear a bra at all, what she is wearing is already a sports bra.

u/hatchetations · 12 pointsr/bigboobproblems

You might want to try the Panache sports bra if you haven’t already. Zero movement, very comfy, breathes well, no uniboob, looks good. Definitely use the r/abrathatfits measurement and sizing guide if you haven't worn Panache before. It’s not cheap and it’ll probably take a few tries to find the perfect size but it’s so worth it.

u/avazah · 12 pointsr/ABraThatFits

It sounds like you might want to invest in some bra extenders, which basically just increase the band size. It might be that you only need a little bit more length in the band, but not a full band size. Bras also do stretch, so an extender can help until the 40 band stretches to a comfortable length.

u/crowcrown · 11 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

NIPPLE COVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go. Be free.

u/skydart · 9 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

None. There's at least one benefit to having tiny tatas!
ETA: I actually technically wear these all the time, and they've changed my life.

u/jujicakes · 9 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

Panache Sports Bra it's a bit pricy but the bra has individual cups and underwires, and your boobs don't even jiggle in it.

u/intangiblemango · 9 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

36E is the same as 36DDD!

Are you wearing sports bras that are sized like S, M, L (like this: ) or that are sized according to your bra size? If it's the former, that's probably your issue.

I do a lot of HIIT which requires bouncing around a LOT and I really like Panache Sport: and Shock Absorber bras including the Ultimate Run bra: (Note: If you happen to buy the Ultimate Gym bra... it sizes really small, so adjust accordingly. The Ultimate Run bra sizes true to size).

At 36DDD, though, you can totally buy sports bras from Victoria's Secret that will be sized according to your actual bra size and they are much more widely available. Be sure to jump around a ton in the dressing room! I can't speak to them much because I am not in the size range that Victoria's Secret serves, but I am sure that they are totally adequate.

u/sarcasmdetectorbroke · 9 pointsr/BabyBumps

I really like these from amazon: They've been super comfy so far!

u/ilostmyumbrella · 9 pointsr/BabyBumps

I got two five packs of these and I have been wearing them every day. In general I just don't notice them throughout the day which is what I was going for.

u/UnaccompaniedMinor · 8 pointsr/AskMen

I know this is r/AskMen, but I'd like to chime in as a woman who also generally goes braless (I'm a small B cup). My issue with going braless was the prominence of my nipples. They just seem to want everyone to look at them and that made me way too self conscious. I bought these and I love them! Now I can be braless and comfortable without it being obvious.

u/iamalwayschanging · 8 pointsr/bigboobproblems

I love these ones that you can order on amazon. They are reusable and work really well!

u/tweebles · 8 pointsr/running

Finding the right sports bra can be tricky. My suggestions:

  • Have you tried any encapsulation bras? Personally, I prefer them because I find them to be more supportive. Instead of compression bras (which work by squishing everything down), they encapsulate each breast individually to keep them from moving. I like the Panache Sport a lot.

  • Sports bras that have regular bra sizes instead of bras that have the general S/M/L might work better for women who need a lot of support.

  • Have you been fitted recently? A good fit is really important when you are depending on the bra to provide strong support, especially when you're doing high-impact stuff. /r/abrathatfits has fitting information as well as a specific sports bra guide if you just want info on other brands.

u/prefinished · 8 pointsr/xxfitness

Panache has some cute colors and they're great bras. I have mine in Geo Print and my fellow pole girls kept complimenting me on it. Just mouse through the colors, there's more than generic solids in there. :)

I know you said 30C, but in this brand, as a 28H I wear a 30FF. Amazon has a great return system anyways!

u/lo_dolly_lolita · 8 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I love my Panache Sport! I wear it for everything like biking, hiking, ballet, traveling, and horseback riding. It would be quite difficult to stock enough sizes for a small business though.

u/KeepInKitchen · 8 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

This is gonna sound a little weird, but these panties are amazing. They are so comfy and super cute. I got them during my first pregnancy and still wear them 4 years later.

u/peristalsis · 7 pointsr/weddingplanning


Literally my favorite sticky pasty. Its the BEST thing I've ever had. I get really sweaty boobs, and these things just let the sweat roll off without losing the adhesive. HIGHLY suggest it

u/cakebyte · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have the Panache Underwire Sports Bra and it's a feat of engineering. My large cup boobs don't bounce when I wear it running. I've also heard good things about Shock Absorber sports bras as well.

u/MissArtsyDee · 7 pointsr/progresspics this sports bra from panache was my saviour. So comfortable and comes in all sizes. Well worth the $70 cause it saved me from knocking myself out every time I jogged. Lol.

u/nottellingit · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have several kind of leggings but my favorite day-to-day pairs are the vera wang kind from kohl's. My favorite exercise pairs are, unfortunately, ones I brought back from visiting my family abroad. My least favorite are these. They're supposed to be seamless but they're not really and have a weird crotch seam that never sits right on me

u/Kaelizilla · 6 pointsr/loseit

Enell makes, hands down, the best sports bra I've ever found for busty ladies, and I've tried many. It's not cute and it can be a bear to get on, but their high impact compression bra (amazon product link) is the only one that has ever worked for me. I never thought I could be a jogger because of my chest, but this one lets me! Well, it lets me try, anyway.

u/kisakisa_ · 6 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

These nipple covers are the best. I can wear them with a really tight top and they don't show at all. Just make sure you get the right color. I have both the adhesive and non-adhesive versions, but I like the adhesive version better for when I'm wearing a loose top.

u/abtfplz · 6 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Yes! I would highly recommend silicone ones that you can continuously reuse. I bought these from Amazon and they've been amazing.

No show throughs, quick cleaning, no movements, hassle free!

u/hellodollybar · 6 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I wear these. I like them the best out of everything i've seen. They have not sticky version too.

u/sevensixteenths · 6 pointsr/weddingplanning

This is totally extra, but what about fabric pasties for see-through coverage under the larger silicone pasties? So these under these. Nippies brand is absolutely the best either way.

u/Helplessly_hoping · 6 pointsr/bigboobproblems

Panache Andorra Full Cup

Cleo Maddie Balconnet

I did notice that some sizes were cheaper than others. I guess it depends what they've got in stock? Hopefully your size is as cheap! If not, shop around the other styles. I looked for quite a while.

u/Libby_Fringe · 6 pointsr/xxfitness

I love this thing. It 1) fits like iron, 2) converts to a racer back, 3) Comes in all sorts of sizes for those of us with big boobs and a small band size.

u/amandatory_reading · 5 pointsr/bigboobproblems

Enell is my favorite for hi impact workouts, I refer to it as my boob harness 🤣 It's going to feel pretty snug on your ribs.

Is F equivalent to a DDD? If so, I use Victoria's Secret for medium-low impact workout. The way the band/cups are set up puts way less strain on my neck.

u/funyunsgood · 5 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Not the person you asked but I have the same nipple protrusion problem. I don't think I'll ever be ok with my nipples poking out. Guys notice I hate the attention and don't like to stand out.

Anyway I use these non-adhesive silicone pasties:

Nippies Skin ORIGINAL Hypoallergenic Nipple Covers pasties. NO ADHESIVE CREME COLOR

u/tehzephyrsong · 5 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I'm half your mom's age, but the way you describe her breasts sounds pretty similar to mine - I'm a cup size smaller than she is at 38E, but I'm also 5'2" and overweight. I've had luck with Panache bras; my favorites are the Tango II balconette and the Jasmine. The Jasmine has stretch lace at the top of the cup, so it's pretty forgiving to full-on-top shapes. I like wearing my Jasmines because they make my boobs stick out further than my stomach, lol!

u/electric_paganini · 5 pointsr/TrueReddit

No, you were right. Lots of women wear flesh colored pasties to if nothing else, protect the nipples from rubbing.

Although I both love and hate how in this link, for their before and after pictures they just photoshopped out the nipples.

u/sassafrassfast · 5 pointsr/loseit

This bra is magical.

Panache Women's Underwired Sports Bra, Black,34 DD

u/kinasekinase · 5 pointsr/xxfitness

I'm 32DD and I adore this panache sports bra. Pricier than target, but makes workouts a ton better. Read the comments for sizing recommendatiosn!

u/PMmeyourSLOTHS · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I am a 32F and I got a great Panache underwire sports bra via Amazon. Kind of looks like a tank top under your clothes but I don't move or spill out at all!

u/TheLastFassbender · 5 pointsr/genderqueer

I really like this bra for exactly that purpose--it fits my (fairly petite) frame, and doesn't "add much," if that makes sense.

u/havalinaaa · 5 pointsr/BabyBumps

I got these and really like them -

They go under your bump so I think they'll last me the whole pregnancy. Super breathable and comfy. I'm actually about to order another pack because I'm a laundry slacker.

u/Mrs_SippySip · 4 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I love and swear by this specific Enell bra: ... you may want to order a 1 and a 0 and see which one you like better.

It's a bit pricey, but definitely holds everything in place.

u/NoseFetish · 4 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

One of my friends uses a silicone or gel insert to increase her size without surgery. They even make bras with little pockets to hold them in.

Some are cheaper than others, and some feel differently than others.

This company makes swimsuits with insert pockets as well as the enhancers.

u/TheCatcherInTheSty · 4 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

These are the ones I use!

u/arcticfox00 · 4 pointsr/asktransgender

I get over a year of moderate use from these [reusable pasties.] (I don't know whether that brand is available there, though.) It feels so free if you don't have much in the way of boobage. Amaze and annoy all your big-boobed friends!

u/metasynthesthia · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I'd suggest a Low Back Bra Converter (Link merely for show, no idea if this is a good one).

Otherwise, if you've got small, perky breasts, I'd suggest something to hide any nippleage showing through (depending on where you're wearing it - dinner with parents -COVER THEM/drinks with friends -Rock it!), and rock it braless.

u/ButTheBoobies · 4 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Woohoo! Let's do this :)

+4 Sister Sizing Method

Base Band: 44" loose + 4 = 48
True Band: 42 or 40; 38 if a band runs particularly loose
Base Bust: 50/51/52 = 51 average
Base Size: 48 B/C/D
Sister Sizes: 48 B / C / D
46 C / D / DD
44 D / DD / E
42 DD / E / F
40 E / F / FF
38 F / FF / G

I think this method can underestimate for larger women with firmer breast tissue, which you appear to have based on your photos.

Relative Sizing

Underbust | Bust
T | S | L | St | Le | La
My Measurements: 34 | 36 | 40 | 50 | 51 | 52.5
Your Measurements: 39 | 42 | 44 | 51 | 50 | 52
Difference: 5" | 6" | 4" | 1" | -1"| -0.5"

I'd say we're around the same cup volume, maybe you're one cup smaller, but you're two to three band sizes larger. I wear a 34J/36HH, so that gives:

-1/+0 cup: 36H/HH
+1 band: 38GG/H
+2 band: 40G/GG
+3 band: 42FF/G

Based on the above and on your photo I'd start with 40FF and 42F, but without being surprised if they're still a touch small ;)

If you're in the US (or nearby), Lane Bryant carries these sizes and labels them as 40G and 42F respectively. Cacique, the name of their lingerie brand, is not highly recommended for its quality and can be tricky to get a good fit in because all of their bras are molded cups, but if you have a store nearby that stocks these sizes then it can be nice for trying out the volume before you buy anything in your new size.

If you're fine with buying online, then I would recommend trying the Cleo Marcie from Amazon in 38G, which is on sale for $27 with free shipping and returns. The band stretches to about 41" in a size 38, so it shouldn't be horrible. You might order an extender just in case the band is too small, so that you can still reasonably try the cup volume.

u/LBluth21 · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

So I had twins (and was bigger to begin with). They do get crazy big after your milk comes in, but that crazy level of engorgement doesn't last forever (it last about 2 months for me).

I would recommend soft stretchy bras for that period of time, and save any underwire purchases for when your size has stabilized. You're also super sensitive and need to sleep in them so it's also great for that.

For now they also sell these to get you by with your old ones.

u/grey_lady15 · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

Extenders! I'm trying my best to hold up on buying bras because I started as a DD, and I can just wait and see how big my boobs get and buy nursing bras. I've noticed that having extenders like these are budget-friendly and can help you get a little more time out of your bras.

u/wambrita · 4 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Hey, your massive quadboob looks like mine when I attempt to wear a 34C!

In all seriousness though, I think you'll do good in a 30F like others have said. Your breasts look firm compared to my pudding boobies, but I'm seeing that you have a similar shape that I do; but mine hang lower.

Try the Cleo Lucy! It gave me enough lift to where the shape I got in the bra is almost identical to your natural shape, I'm confident to say that it'll work for you nicely. Here's me in my Cleo Lucy for what it's worth.

Be aware this band is really snug, and going from a 34 band to a 30 band is going to feel too tight at first, until you break it in, so if you can I would for sure pick up a pack of 2 hook bra extenders to help with the adjustment period. (Feel free to buy other ones beside the listing that I just linked)

Hopefully it works for you! And of course, don't forget to scoop and swoop!

u/SamiRcd · 4 pointsr/Crossdressing_support

This is my favorite bra. Bought it nearly 4 years ago, and I routinely wear it under my male clothes. Never been clocked for it other than by my wife when she's hugged me.

u/maisiedaise · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I wore these all winter. They're super warm, and have held up surprisingly well considering how cheap they are.

u/ttctoss · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

My biggest cheap maternity clothes wins so far have come on Amazon.

Fleece-lined tights (basically socially-acceptable sweatpants), 6 for $30. Not maternity-specific, but I'm 25 weeks and still have plenty of room to grow in these. Have literally just rotated through these every day for the last 4 months. Tights link.

Nursing bras, 3 for $30. Got this pro tip from a girlfriend, you'll probably need nursing bras anyway and they're comfy and stretchy enough for maternity boobs. No more underwires near these titties! Nursing bras.

u/ClementineKBarish · 4 pointsr/OctoberBumpers2017

Giftpocket Women's Under the Bump Maternity Panties Underwear, Pack of 5, Assorted Random Designs and Colors

Follow the size chart. They're crazy sizes and while I felt grumpy about ordering a size with a bunch of X's... they fit like a dream.

u/summahdaze · 3 pointsr/rupaulsdragrace

Just google silicone breast forms / silicone bra inserts. There's loads of them on amazon etc.

u/teacher_geek · 3 pointsr/cosplay

What about the silicone "chicken cutlet" inserts?

u/cardoorhatchet · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Lou & Grey (also sold at Loft) is made for comfort, lots of soft flowy fabric. I have foot pain and love my clarks for that. I saw a few people mentioned bras, I've had good luck with these reusable non-adhesive nipple covers though I usually wear them with a soft, non-padded bralette.

u/misslion · 3 pointsr/piercing

I absolutely adore these. They're reusable and I never see them through clothing.

u/faux-kwah · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Yep. I just use these. I like visible bralettes for some outfits, but I've totally given up on strapless bras. I find this more comfortable.

u/tautology2wice · 3 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Here's the amazon link if people want to get in on this amazingness. They're about 2.5 inches and comfortable enough to sleep in.

u/IAmASquishyBunny · 3 pointsr/bigboobproblems

Well it's usually best to measure according to /r/ABraThatFits, so I'd recommend remeasuring according to their standards first.

Other than that, if she really is a 30E, there are plenty of options. This bra in floral and 30E is $22.10

Black Ombre in 30E is $28.29

Fuchsia 30E is $25.89

Plum 30E is $27.34

30E for $20 and amazing cleavage

30E in blue/black for $21.99

30E in black/purple $24, needs to be added to cart to show actual color

30E china blue is $28.93

30E is equivalent to a 30DDD

Malibu blue 30DDD is $21.83

Honestly, if she's spilling out of a 32DD, a 30E probably won't be much better, since the cups are the same volume. She might need a 30F. As I said, try again using the /r/ABraThatFits method.

u/luftballoons · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

The Cleo Juna has some lace along the top of the cup and isn't too full coverage (but is otherwise boring).

The Deco Plunge is "boring" as far as decoration, but does give nice cleavage w/ less coverage.

The Tango II seems like a fun nude bra, but it's not. It's evil (in this size rage).

I don't think the Natori Feathers comes in your size, unfortunately, because I think it hits all of your points.

The Gossard Superboost lace plunge looks cute, but I haven't tried it (and I think I remember people saying Gossard is weird re shape/sizing?)

The Freya Carys is not beige as in nude color, but is a more neutral color and also comes in longline.

u/pollyatomic · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I recently picked up a couple of the Panache underwire sports bras that sound like they fit your criteria almost perfectly. I got them in 32DD, but they go up to at least DDD/E+. They have multicolored, but I grabbed a solid back and a solid white (on sale at my local running store!). They hook in back and also have a small hook on the straps to convert to racerback if you prefer it. They seem a bit more suited for FoT (which I'm not), but I've been quite happy with them regardless. I'm quite glad I found them!

u/earth_rises · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I've heard good things about this one, if you know your UK size (you'll need to measure yourself).

u/iknitblankets · 3 pointsr/bigboobproblems

I would get fitted for your first one because the band runs small and you may need to go up a band size. Or you can try amazon wardrobe. But here’s a link to the one I purchased!

u/vallary · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

It's a bit harder to get diagnose fit and for some people to get the best possible fit in a moulded bra, but if you're not at all open to wearing a non-moulded bra, that's totally your choice. Your measurements put you between band sizes as well as between cup sizes, so you're likely to wear a 32 band in some bras and a 34 in others (in addition to being between cup sizes).

I'm putting only amazon links in here for ease of shipping/returns. Everything I've linked is available on Prime, but it might default to another seller if the size you choose is out of stock or they have a lower price so just pay attention when you're adding stuff to your cart as other sellers will have their own return policies.

For absolute basic, 'everyday' bras, your best choice to start would probably be Freya Deco. This bra runs bigger in the band, so you'll probably do fine in a 32 band here.

Personally I prefer the fit of the Parfait Jeanie to the Deco, I find the cups/straps are a little closer together so it's much more comfortable for me. (Also it's $20 cheaper, though, I'd still pay the extra money for something that fit better).

Strapless bras are fairly difficult to come by in larger sizes, the Deco Strapless is what I would consider the most useful one, it also comes in a longline version which may be more supportive if you don't find this sufficient. It is tighter in the band than the regular Deco, so you may take a 34 in this.

Panache Sport is probably the most consistently recommended bra on this sub, it comes in underwired and non-wired versions. It's not moulded, the cups are seamed and made of flexible foam. The underwires in the wired version are padded, so it's pretty comfy. You'll probably take a larger band in this based on the fact that you're lifting and doing yoga, and not running.

However, since the Panache sport is an encapsulation bra, it's really not my first choice for yoga. I prefer this Shock Absorber which is a strong compression bra, to just flatten my boobs as much as possible to get them as much out of the way as they can get. This runs tight in the band, so I might suggest trying a 36 band. The sizing is kind of weird on this as well, the boob section never gets any wider, it just gets taller (I own this in a FF and H cup in the same band size), so if you try it and think it doesn't provide enough coverage and is showing too much very squished cleavage, just size up even if it's a cup size much larger than you would normally wear.

$250 is a bit of a tight budget for the number of bras you want, but really not impossible once you've narrowed down your size. Even based on Amazon-pricing, if you like the Parfait Jeanie, you can get 3 of those, the Deco Strapless, and a sports bra for $260.....but you can also get 3 Decos, the Deco Strapless, and a Panache Sport from here for £161 which converts to $213USD. You can also often find new with tags bras on ebay from UK sellers that are selling off previous seasons' printed or fashion colour bras.

u/sockbears · 3 pointsr/loseit

I would recommend trying out a wired sports bra if you can. Having a bra that encapsulates your breasts instead of compressing them really helps with comfort, support, and prevents uniboobing. I have this one by panache and I love it.

u/dehue · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

Have you ever double checked your size at /r/abrathatfits? I am asking because most stores tend to fit everyone busty into DDD sizes which often results in bad bra fit that can be the main reason for painful and uncomfortable bras. I went from 32DDD to wearing 28GG bras from UK bra brands and have stopped having issues with shoulder steps digging in and band not providing enough support. Not to mention that the bras make my boobs look way nicer. Before, I would attempt to alter the band too but it never worked too well.

There are lots avaliable on the internet, in different pretty colors, styles and patterns from bust friendly UK bras. Sometimes it's harder to find plain ones. Most are fairly pricy, but I have found lots of $40 bras on sale in my size before. Nordstoms if you have one near also stocks lots of DD+ sizes in all kinds of styles, brands and colors!

For sports bras, I really recommend Panache sports bra. It's supportive, very comfortable and makes exercising not a terrible experience. There are lots of sales too so if you don't mind the more colorful styles, you can generally find a discounted style fairly easily.

u/jennypop · 3 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

try this one. trust.

u/nosudo4u · 3 pointsr/TryingForABaby

Oh noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! I forgot my underwear a few weeks ago so now I keep a spare pair my gym bag JIC.

PS - Say goodbye to uniboob! Check out Panache Sport. I've also heard great things about Wacoal and Chantelle's sports bras but so far my Panache sport's bras are my favs. I have two with wires and two without and they are seriously the best sports bras I've ever worn.

u/RowingPanda · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I recently purchased a Panache sports bra and love it!

However, my breasts are full on bottom. But the shape of the bra seems like it would hold in the top fullness. Maybe someone else here will have experience with this one and full on top? Good luck!

u/BriannaRG · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Hey there! Definitely not an expert here (I'm sure one of them will check in) but I used to have the same problems. Sports bras are the worst with a pendulous shape- I felt like I was always trying to escape out the bottom of a too-big band! I was jealous of my friends who could just buy a cheap one off the rack in some store labeled in "S, M, L" sizing and make it work. That was definitely not going to happen for me. Looking back, I think most of them had firmer tissue and were self-supporting, so they had a completely different shape than I did.

You'll definitely want to measure yourself according to the sidebar guidelines so that you have a better size to start with. Then, there are lots of sports bras that have adjustable bands and straps, and even different types of hold.

My favorite turned out to be the Panache Sports Bra (I like both the wired and non-wired for different activities). I get incredible lift and support, and absolutely no movement. It's on the expensive side, but I've never been more comfortable in a sports bra and I don't dread working out anymore. Plus, Amazon has lots of sales, so I've rarely paid full price. If it works with your measurements, I recommend trying it! If not, there's lots of other styles to try, and this sub was very helpful in making a few recommendations for me when I was looking. Hopefully you find something that works for you!

u/theruthisloose · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

I am a 30G (measured over at /r/ABraThatFits). I finally broke down and ordered the sports bra from Panache. Assuming you're all measured and properly fitted into the correct bra size, this thing is a miracle!

It doesn't use compression, but more of an encapsulation technique.. if that makes sense? It's the most amazing invention in the world of large-breasted athletes. If you can spare the cash, I would highly recommend it.

u/duchessofeire · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Definitely try a 30 band, I'd say. But if you're worried that it would be too tight, you can get a bra extender to give you a little bit of wiggle room as the band stretches out or your tissue settles back into place. (They're available online and in fabric stores like Joann's, if you have one near you. Just be careful and order the right hook spacing.) If you buy a bra with a borderline-too-big band to begin with, the bra will wear out much faster and you'll have to spend money buying bras sooner. Also you should read this guide to see if you might have shallow breasts, and if so take the bra advice accordingly.

u/annoyingbranerd · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

32GG looks about right.

If you measured after breastfeeding UK 32H US 32K might even be possible when you are swollen.

Since your underbust is 32.5 I recommend getting a non-stretchy bra extender because a few true-to-size 32 bands will feel a bit tight, especially initially.

Like these:

Non-wired bras. I supposed you want something similar to the stretchy and comfy target nursing bralettes.

Check out Bravado Essential Embrace in US 32J/K and the Royce Blossom in 32G/GG/H.

Both are non-wired and have stretchy cups.

Wired bras would give you more support, but I guess comfort is key right now.

u/Atojiso · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Get her a bra extender! Either that or you should get her to try the 36DD. If she's not going to wear the other one, it's not doing her any good.

u/rebinator · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I am between band sizes too and I often use extenders on new bras with the lower band size. After a few washes I don't need the extender any more. I have a set like this.

u/CorrectStaple · 3 pointsr/sissyhypno

I got these and I love them. I've never felt or seen those really nice expensive ones online but I must say that for the price I am extremely satisfied. Nice feel and shape - just won't blend in and look real on your skin if your trying to go topless. Perfect for filling out a bra under your top though.

u/jason43123 · 3 pointsr/cosplay

Hey, looks like a really fun build. If you don't plan on really showing any cleavage and are going to have it covered the entire time, Amazon sells breast forms like this
They will help give you the shape and movement without costing a lot of money.
Also you should probably check out the /r/crossplay subreddit, they have some really good advice over there too for this stuff.

u/evendree72 · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

When I had my reduction, I wore the front zipping sports bras from lane Bryant.. I don't see them on here but they zipped up the front.

Before surgery I always wore the enel sports bra, they were amazing.

u/mysticalthrowawayacc · 2 pointsr/loseit

When I was that band and cup size (38G/GG) I wore an Enell sports bra size 3. (I now wear the same one as a 34/36 G/GG in a 2). It's super effing ugly, but ZERO BOUNCE and that's really what I'm looking for for running and stuff.

Here's the Amazon link-

u/not_my_jam · 2 pointsr/GoneWildCD

true, but those can be expensive! A gal's gotta budget! For me, since I almost never get my girls all dolled up like this, socks and bras make sense and have great visual results. I think if I wanted cleavage often, I would totally invest in something more comfortable. I bought some of these for fun, and they bump me up a cup size or so :)

Are there other secrets I don't know about??

u/Thegroovygrandfather · 2 pointsr/piercing

I have worn these ( every day for about two years and love them. They are silicone and manage to stick to your skin without any adhesive. I am not sure if a ring would interfere with this sticking process at all, but I would think they would still work. Let me know if you end up trying them because I've considered getting this piercing.

u/pettoyaki · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I got these.

Sometimes I will give them a quick spritz with a small spray bottle so they adhere better. They've never fallen off, but the initial adhesion can be tough if your skin is dry and/or it's super cold.

u/t_maia · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Found non-adhesive ones, sadly they are freaking expensive.

If cotton liners are not your thing, not removing the cover on the sticky part of the adhesive nipple covers might also work.

I have a (sticky) Nu-Bra that I use to even out my asymetry, I never took off the cover and it works.

u/tomatoesandchicken · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide
u/fingers-in-ears · 2 pointsr/konmari

If your cup size is small, try Nippies. I also have a wide rib cage with small breasts and bra fitting is very challenging. I don’t need a bra for support, just to keep my nipples from poking through my shirt. Nippies take care of that. I LOVE not having a band around my chest.

u/avatar_aangst · 2 pointsr/Fibromyalgia

I wear nippies on my braless days.
Love them so far.
I have a few bralettes and sports bras I cycle through, I feel like alternating styles helps, but maybe I just haven’t found the right one.

u/salamander05 · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I have [these] ( in both sizes. The larger one is thicker in the middle than the smaller ones but the larger ones are quite large in relation to my boob! They work reasonably well but there is still a small bump.

It's one of these. They're AMAZING! Highly recommend. Great support, and really cute, too.

u/pinkponies7 · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I'm also in NEPA and a 30FF !! Ok, sorry, I get excited when I see other fellow NEPA'ers here. Anyway! There are absolutely no specialty stores here and it makes me sad =/. My method so far (I have amazon prime) is ordering a bunch online in different brands and styles, then shipping back what doesn't work. It seems like a huge pain to most people, but I don't think it was that bad. Plus with amazon, you can schedule the UPS people to pick up returns at your house. also has free shipping, I just found that amazon is cheaper.

Another option is making a trip to NYC or Philly for a day, finding a specialty store and trying a bunch on then either buying there or ordering online when you get home. I'm sort of an even shape with avg. projection and my favorite so far is my panache andorra.

u/Goddess_Keira · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

The difference in size is probably not due to using inches instead of centimeters. It is probably because you pulled the tape more tightly on one occasion than the other, leading to smaller measurements and of course therefore a smaller predicted size.

Your measurements point more to 34G US (or 34F in UK sizing) than 34DDD, to me, especially since you say you're projected. The bras you bought were small in the cups for you, thus your breast tissue had to go somewhere and some of it went in the band which makes the band feel too tight. Meanwhile, your breasts are seeking more room in the cups, so they can push the cup away from your body, giving the appearance of gaping.

Since you say you appear projected, I have to say minimizers won't give you the best fit because they don't suit a projected shape--they're shallow and wide, and so the pull tissue a little closer to the chest and give a slightly minimized appearance. But this works best for fit if the wearer's shape is also shallow and wide, which does not sound like you.

Because you're leery of the 34 band, what I'll recommend you try is the Panache Andorra bra in 36E UK. This is a sister size up to the UK size of 34F (that would be equivalent to US 34G). The cups of 36E hold the same volume of breast tissue as 34F on a larger band, but the thing about the Andorra is that it runs snug in the band, so it's kind of a compromise between a 34 band and a TTS 36 band. Hopefully this explanation makes sense to you, but if you're confused by anything feel free to ask questions.

u/bloggsy · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

It sounds like she might be something like a 34J or 36HH? If so, you should be able to help her to find something fairly easily. If she doesn't want them 'up here' in her face, look for something full coverage so she doesn't feel like they are all on show as she might with a plunge or balconnet.
When you've measured, how about trying the Panache Andorra - the lace is pretty stretchy so I think it works for a number of shapes, and comes up to a J cup. You could order it from Amazon or Nordstrom and get free returns - it's cheaper elsewhere but the free returns is wonderful when you are trying sizes.

u/granitehoncho · 2 pointsr/gentlemanboners
u/GetOffMyLawn_ · 2 pointsr/fatlogic

Everybody has nipples, but guys like to make comments nonetheless. You can get silicone pasties to hide your nips. Your other option would be silicone bra insert or silicone bra.

Me, I am too old to give a fuck. One of the nice things about getting older.

u/KTcube · 2 pointsr/genderqueer

If you're comfortable not having tight fabric to keep your boobs in place, but you're concerned about showing nipples, there are reusable silicone things that stick to the nipples and keep them smooth. This way, you have the appearance of not showing your nipples, and the protection of your nipples from fabric rubbing them, and none of the wires and straps that bras have. like this

Of course with those sticky things, your boobs will still be able to move, but maybe they'll look more "professional". I think that your breasts are going to move unless you wear something very tight to keep them in place, which is going to basically be a bra or a binder. (maybe by another name. But you'll end up with a strap around your ribs and straps over your shoulders, or just an overall super-tight top anytime you're trying to keep your boobs in place. Loose fitting tops are not going to prevent your fat from jiggling no matter what.)

u/harrick · 2 pointsr/Swimming

A completely different option is nipple covers. They do help minimize nipples being pointy.

u/kaylore · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Firstly, please do what /u/eriophora suggested! 32A is a very uncommon size, and a fitting bra will help you immensely right away if that is not your true size.

Now that that is out of the way, what kind of back does the dress have? There exist "low back bra extenders," but I have not used them myself so I am not sure how well they actually work. The ones I linked were totally random.

u/sadie0922 · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I found it! It's called Low Expectations and I have no idea if it actually works but it looks like it might do the trick for a few hours heh. I might have to invest in one next time I have to reach $25 for the free shipping..

u/cairdes · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I found mine on, it is also on, and Nordstroms. Here is the Amazon link and here is the sports bra's page on the Panache website. It is a UK company so make sure you know your size in UK terms. If you scross down this page. You can see a chart comparing US to UK sizes.

u/trialblog · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Panache! It is ah-mazing. I do go down a band and a cup size in this one, normally wear a 30F, took a 28F in white. I don't know if that holds true across the board tho, it might just be because I have in-betweeny sized breasts.

u/Pippyn · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

The Panache Wired Sports Bra has saved my running life! I bought mine on Amazon LINK
PRO TIP: This ran a cup size big for me. I'm a 32GG and the 32G is perfect for me.

edit: I'm just now realizing this isn't in K on Amazon. Sorry :(

u/simplythere · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I can understand the desire to buy something for your SO, even if there's a likelihood that they may not like it. My husband isn't a fan of shopping so he won't even bother looking until his current clothes rip or become threadbare, so I've always just bought a bunch of options for him to try at home without the pressure and discomfort of a dressing room and returned things that he didn't like. I've returned entire orders of clothes to Nordstrom because he didn't like any of it. I think it's the sentiment of doing something considerate to make them feel comfortable vs. what you actually end up buying.

As for your question, I think the Panache underwired sports bra is pretty popular among very busty women. Compression-only bras may not provide enough support for women with a lot of volume. I'd also try one with molded cups and no underwire like the Moving Comfort one another girl suggested because depending on how her breasts are spaced, some underwires go up too high and can cause discomfort where the center gore will dig into the breast tissue.

u/memmly · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I have two of these bras and they're my favorite for running:

They have version without underwire too.

Edit: id like to clarify that i wear 28F and I'm very particular about having enough support while running. So this bra really does great

u/captain_wombat · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

A properly fitting bra will support and separate your breasts without pressing them too tightly to your chest. It sounds like that's what you're looking for. What I would recommend is first to use the calculator and then post a measurement check with your measurements so the community here can help you find your ideal fit. I think it's likely that the bras you have been wearing are too large in the band and too small in the cup, which is just a recipe for discomfort.

Once you have found your ideal size, a bra with a nice snug band and soft underwires will be super comfortable. Personally my most comfortable bras are from Comexim, but there are other brands with pretty soft underwires too.

Another option is to go with an encapsulation-style sports bra. These bras are designed to completely surround your breasts and hold them snugly in place without compressing them. The gold standard for this type of bra is the Panache Sport. I get the "oozing" problem you describe with some compression-style sports bras, but the Panache keeps everything in place nicely.

u/DeciduousTree · 2 pointsr/thebachelor

Sure, it’s this one. I usually buy them when the less popular colors go on sale.

u/Red_Mare_ · 2 pointsr/Equestrian

I wear a Panache underwire sports bra. I'm a 30GG, so I need the support. And it does a pretty good job. I had to size down to a 30G in the sports bra because of shape issues, though.

Eta: I got mine from Amazon here

u/quaith · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Aww, your emoticon is so sad! The Panache Sport has kind of padded wires? In my experience, it's not great at separation and it's very full coverage, but looks like it gives a good shape/support in your size range. FYI, generally people report the band runs firm and the cup runs small, so you might want to try a 36H/38GG as well as your normal size.

u/ReadWriteRecycle · 2 pointsr/tifu

Agree with all the r/abrathatfits recommendations, but wanted to add a suggestion she try 2toms SportShield swiped along where the band will sit and under where the clasps will be if she’s going to be exercising in humid or rainy conditions or doing cardio for over an hour. Even the best fitting sports bra (my pick is Panache Underwire over Freya or Shock Absorber) still has the potential to chafe!

u/tossinthetrash22 · 2 pointsr/C25K

It's hard when I don't live somewhere where I can try sizes like that on. I'd prefer to just keep ordering sizes like the ones I can try on that fit reasonably.

Right now I'm looking at this one by Panache, but it's such a pain to order it and send it back if it doesn't fit. And a disappointment, like this Shock Absorber was.

u/geekygirly · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

The Panache underwired sports bra:

I am a 30JJ and love Love LOVE this sports bra. The band is nice and firm, and the wires are very well padded and don't hurt or dig. I also love that it has a hook to convert the bra from normal to racerback straps (I find I need the extra holding power of converting to racerback after a while on a run!)

Have fun getting back into the gym! I'm just getting back into after the holidays too and it feels great to be sore (good sore!) after a workout!

u/superasteraceae · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Panache Sport comes in an ever-changing array of colors and patterns. The "boob-armor" style might not suit you, but you'll probably find a color that does.

Other options:
Freya (both Panache and Freya have more styles than just the one underwire version))
Shock Absorber (also look for different styles from them, and check out UK retailers for even more options than are available in the US)

They make these to extend your bra, if it's the band that's bothering you.

u/hurrrrrmione · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

If it's just at the top, that's not an uncommon problem with Panache and Panache sub-brand (which Cleo is) bras. Panache uses very hard wires. If you want to keep the bras, you should be able to fix the problem by bending the tips of the wires a bit away from your body.

Since you're describing the bands as just a bit tight, a 36 band is going to be too big on you. They will stretch out over time through use, but in the meantime what some people do on here is get bra extenders (example).

u/fourfs · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I bought these but I'm not thrilled with them. The quality is fine, but the spacing doesn't really work and I can sometimes feel them scratching against my back - not on every bra, but some, just depends on how it lines up. I'm not really looking to extend my bra bands so much as reinforce the hooks. The way the spacing is on these, they invariably add about 1/4 of an inch which is fine when a bra is brand new, not so much on my older bras.

These Maidenform extenders are my favorite, but they're not as affordable to buy in bulk.

u/Malyi · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Thanks for this! The Marcie (well, at least the one I found on amazon ) looks a little pinky.

u/cleverdistraction · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Yeah, the shape or size may just not be quite right for you, but I figured the strap thing was worth a shot. You definitely don't want the straps to be TOO tight, but adjusting the straps is one of those things I still sometimes forget to do with a new bra that it can make a difference in the fit especially in the top of the cup.

Re: extenders, I had never seen one before either, don't worry about it. :)

I got mine at Amazon, but they're often available at other stores like Target, Walmart, or - here's an interesting one - Joann Fabrics (remember to check for coupons!).

The reason I got mine on Amazon is that you get a lot more of them for the money, e.g. this set or this one, with prime shipping available, but if you want one immediately then you should be able to find one locally! I do not have any particular brand preferences or advice; I've never used one for an extended (ugh pun not intended) period of time so I don't know if one brand holds up to repeated use better than another, or anything. I just got a set with lots of pretty colors because I'm like a magpie or something O_o

u/anxious-pigeon · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

transmasc here -- I wore/wear this one all the time when I needed to not feel my chest. It's very thin and lightweight, good for smaller chests but if you've got particularly noticeable nips it might not hide them with a thin shirt (like those clingy super thin women's shirts). If that's an issue for you I'd look for a stretchy bralette with light padded inserts. TBH I fucking hated underwire and any scratchy material (lace, too many ribbons, etc).

Sports bras as hailed as they are for comfort actually aren't that comfortable when thing are sensitive :(

u/Squishy_Cat · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

I'll also second the bralettes and lounge bras! I don't think it makes much sense to spend a lot of money on expensive bras when you're in your first year or so of HRT, just because you'll probably have growth spurts and end up outgrowing them anyway.

I happen to like these Hanes wire-free bras. They're flexible with the sizing, so you won't grow out of them too fast, and they're only about $12 each. Pretty comfy, too! Just be aware that they're not padded, if that matters to you. They do have front sliders though, which makes adjusting them much less of a hassle than a lot of other bras!

u/thunder_goes_BOOM · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I wore some high waisted PJ pants and a nursing tank to the hospital. And slip on sneakers. They had me change into a hospital gown prior to getting ready for the surgery. For the actual procedure they pushed the gown way up on to my side of the drape. I'm not sure if wearing my.own gown would have been an option, it definitely would have gotten pretty bloody while recovering afterwards. I was basically laying in bed with a giant pad under me for the first few hours as after the procedure until I was allowed to get up and walk around.

These won't work as well for the bra you're getting though, hence the lower recommendation. These "teardrop" type forms, particularly ones with a flat back (which the cheap teardrops tend to have) work better with underwire bras.

u/CD-in-DC · 2 pointsr/MtF

I have these: Feminique 1000gr Silicone Breast Forms size 34D/36C/38B(size 7) Fake boobs for Crossdresser/ Mastectomy Patient

I really like them. They also have smaller and bigger sizes. I’d probably go with these or the 600gr ones depending on your size.

Don’t use any of the “pocket bras” that you’ll see links to, they are all terrible. I’ve ordered like four different ones. Just find a decent normal bra.

u/I_hate_naming_things · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

I bought these the other day,

They feel great, and really help with my dysphoria but I can't really help with the differences in shape or which are the most realistic. I will probably won't buy anymore because I plan on growing my own, but /r/crossdressing might also be a good place to go for those type of questions.

u/CD1729 · 2 pointsr/crossdressing

I got these breast forms online, and they're pretty good yet at a reasonable price: They have lots of different sizes, so you can get them smaller or larger if you want.

u/feckoffk · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

Hey, we're the same size! Can I ask you about sports bras? I'm a very petite long-distance runner (5'1, 105 pounds) so I bought Enell bras and sewed the straps a lot higher, really tight. Now my boobs don't bounce, but my shoulders and back HURT.

u/odstwar · 1 pointr/funny

Customers who bought this also bought... adult sized baby clothes? Silicone bra inserts? ...

u/kikellea · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I wear these, the non-adhesive kind, once in a while. They work okay, great for when you just don't want to strap/bind your chest. They just need a bit of a wash after every few uses. I've had mine for a year and a half.

u/__stare · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

These are the best by far. Super thin edge and no sticky side that wears off over time. They stay on incredibly well (for me) as long as I'm wearing a fairly tight fitting top. I have had one fall off twice in the year I've had them, both times I was sweating a lot, wearing a loose top, and bending over a lot (gardening).

u/slothcough · 1 pointr/MakeupAddiction

Bandaids work! You could also try these! A friend of mine has smaller boobs and she wears these instead of a bra most days and says it's crazy comfortable.

Same here. I'm a 34B, and after testing the waters for a month I found them too uncomfortable to go back. I have never gotten a negative comment about it. Guys I date seem to be either indifferent or appreciative.

I wear Nippies Skin under see-through shirts or when I'm really concerned about nipple showage (e.g. during a job interview). I don't like it when my nipples get hard, but it rarely happens and I'm slowly training myself to give no fucks.

I have these pasties, and I love them! I've worn them a couple times per week all summer, with zero problems.

u/gaseum · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

I'm getting a 32F for you, my dear. If you do prefer the 34 band, the sister size would be a 34E (equivalent to a 34DDD in Victoria's Secret). But I do suggest trying the 32 to see how it feels.

For full on bottom/projected/average root, I'd recommend:

  • Freya Arabella
  • Bravissimo Alana
  • Panache Tango II Balconette
  • Cleo Lucy

    These are in order from very narrow and projected to average width and somewhat projected, so you may have to experiment to find the style that's right for you.

    If I were you, I'd try the Arabella and Cleo in a 32F, and the others in either a 32F or a 34EE depending on your preference.

    Hope this helps! Be sure to post a fit check when you get your bras so we can troubleshoot any potential problems. :)
u/Shanakitty · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

Projected, seamed bras don't have to make your boobs look like cones or cylinders. They can look pretty round (most of my bras are very projected, unlined cups, and give a nice shape). The main problem is that they don't make many bras like that in your size range.

I just looked though, and it seems that they make Panache Andorra in 40D. It is a bra with medium-width wires and medium projection (though I'm not 100% sure how it scales in your size) that suits even top- and bottom-fullness, so it should be a lot more projected than your current bras, but without a lot of danger of being pointy. If you try it, I would suggest not getting the black, because black bras tend to run a bit smaller (something about black dye sometimes makes them less stretchy). Panache bands are typically pretty firm/true-to-size, and since they don't make C-cups, getting a 42 isn't an option.

u/yolibrarian · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

Post ABTF, and my biggest go-tos are the Goddess Michelle in Sand and the Panache Andorra in Pearl. I don't really care about seams showing through my clothes, and honestly the specific seaming on Michelle is what makes it fit me so well. I'm more bothered about coloured bras showing through my clothes, so I don't wear some of my other bras as often, but I also love some of Freya's half cup bras--they have such cute patterns!

u/EmmaInFrance · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

With the Panache brand bras (including Cleo and Sculptresse) that I've tried so far, I've needed to go up a cup size, so you might want to try a 38F in the Cleo Minnie. How did you find the band on the Minnie, out of interest?

You could perhaps try the Panache Andorra or Andorra Plunge. There's also the Panache Jasmine and Scupltresse Chi Chi/Flirtini/Paradise. I get a little wrinkling at the top of the Scupltresse bras but it doesn't show under bras.

u/LolosterGoldfish · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits
  • If you haven't already, please check your measurements according to the side bar. I can't emphasize this enough and if I sound rude about this I don't mean to, it's just important to finding a properly fitted bra of any type!
  • How backless are we talking? They make low back converter straps that hook up directly to your bra and depending on how the back of the dress looks that could be an option for you. Typically you wear them so that it hooks directly in the back, loops around your stomach and then hooks to the other side. You can also wear them in such a way that you hook it to the back, bring the wing forward, wrap it around your back, and then hook it up to the other wing (also brought forward). The low-back converter strap method would probably give you the most support, though if it is also a strapless dress I don't recommend using one of these with the "bring it forward first" method because I imagine that it would fall down.
  • Depending on your size the stick on backless bras may or may not work for you. There are a few different types of these, but keep in mind none of them will give you the same support as an actual bra (at least as far as the information I've gathered so far suggests). There's the silicone chicken cutlet type, the cloth chicken cutlet type, the underwire type, the U-plunge type, the disposable adhesive type, and then there's this type which encapsulates each breast, just to name a few. The problem with many of them (though not all of them) is that they label their sizes as "a-cup," "b-cup," "c-cup", etc. They assume that all a-cups (etc.) hold the same volume. This is completely inaccurate so trying to gauge your actual size is very difficult. Mostly you just have to buy it and try it multiple times until you find your size.
  • For example: I wear a UK 30G and in a Nubra Original I found the c-cup to be just slightly too large and I ended up going with a b-cup. Though I've also heard from someone else who was about the same size as me that the c-cup and even the d-cup was way too small for them. I think I might be shallow shaped and I don't believe the other person was so breast shape may be an issue when finding one that fits as well.
  • The Maidenform underwire one that I linked to does list sister sizes, so if you have been sized by the methods on the size bar and if a sister size is available then it could possibly fit. A possible fit issue I could see with these is that the wires could be too wide or too narrow depending. The very last adhesive bra that I listed to is probably the most accurate in terms of sizing, but from what I understand they aren't very low-cut if that is a concern.
  • Another option you could try if you aren't concerned about support in the least is to use nipple covers and fashion tape to keep the dress stuck down to your skin.

    Having gotten through saying all of that, if you have been sized by the methods used here in r/abrathatfits and you end up getting one of these bras, I am currently working on collecting data in a survey so that a more accurate sizing guide could be created. Please fill it out and let us know how it goes for you, but again, only if you've been sized by our methods (and again if my repetitive nature about this is coming off as rude it's not intended to be - I just want to get the most accurate information out there for other people). And if anyone else is reading this, the survey is still going on. I've only had 2 responses to it so far.

You can get one of those adapter things- basically they hook onto the bra back closure, and you wrap it around diagonally. They are like this:

u/neptunesbrinypubes · 1 pointr/xxfitness

We have similar stats, so just chiming in with some anecdotal experience!

I hit puberty before many of the girls in my class and was known for having outrageously large boobs throughout middle and high school, so mine, too, have been the target of my frustrations for many years. After having children, they grew exponentially (nursing and weight gain), and haven't gone back to their previous size since. They're a nuisance and a pain, and I'd likely be really self-conscious of them if I were less comfortable with myself, because their mass means they hang low on my chest wall without a bra to lift them up. Personally, I've considered breast reduction, but not seriously, because, for better or worse, I experience a lot of anxiety with surgery and hospitals. In short, you're not alone in resenting something that other women get augmented to possess.

Here is a visual reference of the change in my own body since I lost 50 lbs. After my second kiddo, I was at my heaviest weight, 180 lbs (am 5'1"). I think I was a 36 J. After the weight loss, I was a 30 G. That's three band sizes and six cup sizes, and keep in mind that cup size also shrinks in proportion to band size.

I imagine your results will be largely influenced by genetics; but that being said, there's still hope. I think you absolutely need to get yourself a hardcore, proper sports bra after being properly fitted. I have a Panache, and I can do anything in it without pain. At my largest, I wore an Enell, and currently I wear a Panache and am size 32GG. I prefer the Panache over other styles and brands because it has a center spacer that separates the breasts. At my bust size, a traditional pull-on sports bra that creates the pressed-together-uniboob-look just means I'm in for lots of sweat and heat rash. Another well-regarded sports bra for busty ladies is the Freya, but I've found that the Freya brand, although superior quality, personally doesn't work for me because I'm a full-on-bottom breast shape and they're often too shallow for me. I've also had my Panache for three years and use it exclusively, and it looks and performs like new.

As an aside, I worry that your use of the word "disproportionate" to describe yourself indicates that you have some unhealthy feelings toward your body. Many of us have experienced body dysmorphia, but you need to understand that there's no such thing as a disproportionate body, unless you have Elephantiasis or a similar medical disease. I know you were probably just using it to describe how chesty you feel, but big busted or not, you're not unnaturally or wrongly shaped, and you need to know that. Keep eating well and moving your body, and hopefully your happiness in your own skin will follow!

u/CB81 · 1 pointr/xxfitness

What type of bra are you wearing? Most sports bras are compression type, which rely on stretchy fabrics to squish you into your ribcage, and generally don't provide much support for bounce.

Try an encapsulation bra like the Panache Sport or Freya Active. Encapsulation bras are fitted to your ribcage measurement where the band rests, usually have wires to surround your whole breast, and provide higher rise for protection against upward movement. You might also like Enell, Shock Absorber, or Moving Comfort.

Panache and Freya use UK sizing, so head here to figure out what size to get:

u/kbug21 · 1 pointr/xxfitness

32F here (UK sizing) and Lululemon didn't cut it. It was painful to run. Now I wear Panache and it's awesome!

Edit: This bra is THE SHIT for busty ladies

Um. So yeah, I goofed up a little. It's actually not a Freya, it's a Panache. This one:

Derp. Sorry. :P Back to square one, I guess.

Anyway, I do have pretty significant gapping at the top of the cups - maybe about an inch? Though maybe I should go down to a GG instead... a little gapping won't bother me too much.

Thanks for the input about the balcony/plunge bras. :D

Hey! Is the Panache Sport in the color that Amazon calls turquoise/lime?

Any chance you'd be interested in a beige 28DD Panache Porcelain?

u/turmoli · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

Ah, this is more complex than I realized it would be!

I will purchase a 28FF this weekend and see how that fits and if I can get used to it.

I've seen a lot of people raving about the Panache sports bra. Do you have any experience with this brand, and if you do, do I keep the 28FF as well?

Thanks so much!
I'm already intimidated because I just looked up VS bras, and they don't even list band size 28. Or bigger cup sizes for smaller bands. This will need some shopping around, yeah shopping!

u/basylica · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

Most bras use the UK sizing when you are in the post DD size. There are a few exceptions.

Bravissimo has huge selection, as well as figleaves and amazon carries a lot of them. If you want to try on IRL nordstrom will carry your size in most stores.

If memory serves (see i dont even remember because UK sizing is king) 32K = 32H which is one band and cupsize larger than me. You have a lot of options but for me i prefer panache (particularly cleo which is a sister brand) bras mainly because they cater to smaller bands and deep (vs wide) cups.

Next step is figuring out you breast shape and trying on bras. Fyi after 20yrs of cramming myself into too small bras my initial size worked until i had the mythical “tissue migration” and went up like an extra cup size so i would warn you about buying a ton of bras initially because boobs can sometimes inflate after years of being compressed ;)

I really like the panache cleo marcie, its been my goto for several years (and sizes) now. But i probably tried on tons of sizes and styles over the years. But if you are full on top its a great place to start and has come in a rainbow of colors over the years.

Amazon isnt a bad place to start ordering bras because of free ship and returns and there are lots of shapes and styles.

Try a few and post fit results here (you dont have to post pics, just this fit great in this way but didnt work because of this...)

Odds are good you will need a deep cup vs a shallow one because generally H cups are. So panache is a good place to start. Freya is another brand (i found the bands were not firm enough when i tried them, but this was years ago) bravissimo has their own line of bras, curvy kate makes bras in your size (ive never tried them as ive heard they run wide and shallower, but i cant say for sure)

You can literally search 32H bras on amazon and scroll through options.

Goddess comes in US sizing, and a couple other brands but UK tends to be the popular big boob bras. The brits definitely have us beat bigtime on better bras ;)

These can be pretty compressing so i preferred going up a size ie 32H when i wear a 30H in other bras, but id start with your size and go up if you need to. Just be aware of sister sizing. Ie 30H = 32GG = 28HH. Go up a band go down a cup, and down a band go up a cup.
So 32H = 34GG is one band bigger but same cup. Confusing but bras can be ;)

Id highly recommend using a unlined cup bra like marcie or jasmine to find correct fit. Lots of girls want/are used to foam cup bras but they dont mold to you like a “cut and sew” bra and make it hard to diagnose fitting issues. There are some foam cup and spacer options out there in your size but id start with the inlined for fitting purposes first.

Check out bravissimo’s site too and filter by your size. The options will for sure blow your mind ;)

u/bustybluestocking · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

My experience with sports bras and gymnastics (which has it's own 360 concerns) has led me to search for the elusive racerback encapsulation DD+ bra. Racerbacks are only style I get support, good distribution of pressure and full range of motion in, while encapsulation personally feels much more comfortable then compression. Both the Panache Sport and Freya Active (which are very popular, so give them a try too) have j-hooks which are completely inadequate and a bit flimsy.

I've temporarily settled on the Bendon Extreme Sport. It's a cup size small for me (only goes up to a G, alas!), but the best fit I've found: great top and side support, convertible straps for a true racerback and really strange wires (they have a sort of swoosh shape when worn) that somehow work. Worth a spot on your list for sure.

u/100-percent-awesome · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

I think you'll be fine in a 34. The extender is for just in case and while you transition to a smaller band. You can get something like this. Personally, I went from a 36 band down to a 30 band! The difference in firmness definitely takes a little while to get used to, so even if the 34 seems really tight I urge you to try it out for a week or so before writing it off.

u/rsv123 · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

Amazon has about a zillion different options- This Maidenform one says it has 3/4" spacing between each row- would that work?

u/biomags · 1 pointr/xxketo

Somethings about weight loss sucks, some not so much. I'll give you what advice I've got for the issues I've also dealt with or at least have and idea on how to solve.

The bra issue sucks. I have the same issue. u/HDavethoreauAway gave some good ideas. I would also recommend buying a band too small and using bra extenders.

The belly fat issue I've dealt a little with, but a good friend had a bigger issue with it. My recommendation from what she did is to buy some large spandex for the belly fat. Not with the intention of sucking it all in, but to keep it from hanging or jiggling. Make sure they are loose enough to be comfortable. Think of it as a body bra. One option would be a cheap bathing suit.

Clothing is an issue I can help the most with. First off, as long as you are actively losing weight, buy cheap clothes (if you can). Cheap clothes usually looks fine for only a short time then falls apart. By the time it falls apart you won't need it. Cheap clothes aren't always easy to come by in all sizes, this may or may not be an option.

The actual best option is to start visiting thrift stores. If people wear it, people donate it. Many people donate all clothes as they lose weight, but hold on to nice clothes that are too small. This means you will find more nicer clothes in larger sizes. Thrift stores sell clothes/sizes people donate, so sizing shouldn't be as big of an issue.

Last of all, dresses and skirts. Even if you are not the biggest fan of them, they tend to be more forgiving in how they look while you lose weight. Skirts tend to be cheaper to alter, and a fit flair style will allow you to use a belt even when they really are just too big.

u/coledarling · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

also on amazon :) with free shipping/returns with prime!

u/vmbuford · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

Okay, if you've tried flirtelle and you think you need narrow wires, and you're full on bottom, I'd say try Cleo Lucy or Marcie. Marcie is more for even breasts, while Lucy tends to work better on FOB breasts. You could also probably try Freya, which also has narrow wires, and most of their models are FOB compatible. The deco may work for you (it has narrow-ish wires), or one of their padded halfcups may do you well. For cleo, you'll probably want to stick to a 32 band, but you may need to go down to a 30 in some Freya's, as they tend to be stretchier.

You should be able to order these all (although, for some odd reason, I can't find the cleos on nordstrom's site even though I know they carry them) for free shipping and free returns (or maybe try them on in store at) Nordstrom. Also, amazon prime, if you've got it.

These other bras are also recommeded for FOB:

  • Bravissimo Alana
  • Freya Arabella
  • Panache Tango II Balconette
  • Goddess Kiera

    Depending on how FOB you are, the CK Entice may also work for you (although, it has been discontinued, tends to work better for even shapes), and you should probably go up one cup size for it, so 32FF.

    Do you live in Southern CA? I've heard good things about Jennette's bras as well as Nordstrom/Nordstrom Rack for fittings and bra shopping.

u/gliterpoison · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

Thanks for the tag /u/crazymusicalgenius96 !
I am feeling you girl! Our shape is a pain and a half. I am going to be totally honest with you. I tried a crap ton of bras before I found what I wanted. Wanna know what I found? Victoria Secret. Its the weirdest thing to me that it it what fits best (still not perfect but literally fits very well when put on well). I also fit well in a self expression by maidenform racerback. I am trying to remember if they run to a 32D/DD but I would not suggest the raceback if you get a 34C/D as you likely will need a rixie clip to help keep it tighter (because the bands are pretty stretchy). I would suggest getting this first and trying this ( on (suggest 34C/D as their bands are stiffer). It is the only of the UK bras I have had actually fit me, second best was the Freya Lauren padded halfcup. It fit for awhile but as it shifted it was bad for me but it could be good for you (would go for a 32D/DD for sure in that). If you wanna talk bras with me feel free to PM me as I don't want to rant here lol. :)

PS: Padded bras rarely work for us. I am trying to find one now that will work but it isn't healthy to wear them daily anyways so it works out :). I would also like to say that the calculator size is a starting point and you likely will be closer to a 32D than the DD as it overestimates often for our shape.

u/wanchin · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

Thank you.
I will have to head over to nordstroms to try them out.

You said "depending on your shape". Can you elaborate please?

EDIT: I was reading the reviews for one of them on Amazon and people were saying that they are sized to small. Is that just because they ahvne measured themselves properly? Does Cleo's sizing match the number we cam up with here?

EDIT2: Which one of the brands at nordstrom have sizing that matches the numbers here? And which has the 3-part unpadded that you recommended?

u/ZestyChinchilla · 1 pointr/asktransgender

I think I ordered my first ones when I was about 3 months in. Things were just obvious enough that I figured I probably should, at least to keep things a little less...pointy-looking.

In fact, i still have those bras and still wear them. They're very comfy, and my only real complaint is that I wish they had a little padding, mostly to prevent them from bunching up a little on occasion. But they're still great options for you first bras, because they're "flexible" sizing (S/M/L instead of fitted sizes). They're the Hanes Convertible Seamless Wire-Free bras.

u/Qwaiii · 1 pointr/asktransgender

Having similar issue, be wearing some sports bra's and thought I need something less tight and one wearing now came in today. Fits fairly nice, I don't have much for breast, just keeping my nipples from rubbing.

Also got a Calvin Klein Cotton Bralette, but have not worn that for more than a couple minutes, so can't vouch for it yet. (But the Calvin probably won't do too much to hide nipples if that's a concern as it seems thin, but the bra I linked In thin, but thick enough to hide nips.)

>Well before I even started thinking about trying to get pregnant, I read /u/yeah_iloveit’s maternity wear guide. It’s fantastic and helpful and I am currently using her postpartum guide to help me prepare for life after baby. So what I’m sharing here is basically a personal application of the guide to show how well it worked for me, and to include a few of my personal insights.
>First a note on pregnancy and your changing body. No one’s pregnancy is the same. I kept comparing my belly to other women’s and was really disappointed that I wasn’t showing in the same ways. I didn’t look really pregnant until about 20 weeks, and even then it could have been chalked up to bloating. Don’t even try comparing yourself to others. You probably knew this already, but sometimes a reminder is a good thing.
>Second, a note on quality. Normally, I lean more quality-over-quantity, with a tendency to buy fewer, more expensive items. For maternity-wear, I’ve kind of changed my tune. Sure, I’ll be wearing some of these things for over a year, but then, that’s kind of it. So for me, it was not worth investing in nicer, more expensive clothes that I’ll just donate next year. Even if I get pregnant again, I’ll probably want at least a few new things anyway as styles will have changed.
>FIRST TRIMESTER – things escalate quickly
>My boobs grew so big, so fast. By 8 weeks pregnant, most of my non-stretchy tops no longer fit. By 10 weeks, very few of my tops fit and I was wearing my belly band nearly every day. By 12 weeks, not a single one of my old dresses fit (even the stretchy ones) and it was holiday season. At my office party, I had to keep my cardigan on the whole time because my dress wouldn’t zip up, mostly because of my boobs. I had to rush to find a dress for the wedding we attended a week later (thank you Amazon Prime with free returns). At around this time I desperately needed maternity clothes, so I went to the mall and picked up what I needed to make it to the end of the week. Then I went online to fill out my wardrobe a bit more.
>Quick tip: As my boobs grew, I first moved to those coobie-style bralettes, but soon found that I needed actual support. I just went to Nordstrom Rack and got some pretty inexpensive but properly fitting bras that fit on the tightest hook. About 2 months later, these were all too small again, so I just moved on to stretchy but supportive wireless nursing bras.
>SECOND TRIMESTER – small work capsule
>After the mad shopping dash, I had created a little work-wear capsule, and I didn’t buy anything else for over 2 months. My work wardrobe consisted of:
> 2 pairs pants
6 T-shirts
> 2 blouses
2 dresses
> Plus, my regular blazers and cardigan – the longer, looser ones
Plus, all my “comfy” shoes – my nice shoes were already a bit too tight
>Quick tip: I used an elastic belt a bit like this to hold up my under-belly maternity pants before my belly got big enough. With the big panel ones, I folded the panel down halfway. The elastic belt also helps to cinch looser tops & dresses between your bust and belly making you look more pregnant and less stocky.
>Once it started getting warmer, this capsule got boring really fast because I couldn’t create variety with cardigans/blazers. Also, by the end of my second trimester, my feet were starting to swell, and I was down to 2 pairs of shoes that fit, plus an old pair of my husband’s loafers. So here’s what I ended up with in addition to the first 4 lines above:
> 1 skirt
2 more tops
> 5 pairs shoes (2 new)
>This made for a 20-item work capsule.
>My casual wardrobe was also pretty limited, being basically my work top options with the one pair of maternity jeans I’d bought in the first trimester. So during the second trimester I also picked up a second pair of jeans, and some leggings. This worked well for me until the weather warmed up.
>Quick tip: At some point, I bought some under-belly maternity underwear. And then I bought more and wore these exclusively. Because I live in a warm climate, I avoid excess fabric as much as possible, so underbelly works better for me than full panel. You might feel differently, so try before buying a bunch.
>THIRD TRIMESTER – I’m getting hot
>With my teaching semester drawing to a close, the weather heating up, and my growing body running very warm, I needed some casual, summer options. Currently, my casual summer capsule consists of:
2 pairs of shorts
> 1 skirt
6 T-shirts
> 3 loose tank tops
2 blouses
> 5 sundresses
2 pairs of sandals
>Quick tip: Not everything I bought, even in my 3rd trimester, is maternity sized. I bought a very stretchy foldover waist skirt, some drapey tanks (2 sizes larger than my usual) and a pleated swing dress that all provide plenty of room.
>I’ve found that capsule wardrobes by occasion/season were the way to go for me. Despite being more of a maximalist than a minimalist (ahem), I found that I was perfectly satisfied with 20 items at a time, especially since I knew it would be temporary. And for reference, here is a sampling of what I have been wearing for the past month or so: album.
>So far and excluding undergarments, I have spent less than $750 on clothes, and have acquired about 35 new items. Note that this is over the course of 6 months, and about $300 less than I spent on clothes over the same time period last year. I bought everything from:
> Amazon
Old Navy
> Target
>* Goodwill
>I’m happy to answer any questions about my experience buying and wearing maternity clothes. I’d also love to hear others’ experiences and tips for maternity shopping.

You could wear nipple covers, since in the US cops mostly care about the nip being exposed.

They are also known as pasties, they are silicone, self-adhesive and brand new they are pretty damn sticky. Prices range on amazon from 8-15 bux for a single pair. I bought these and they stayed on for 12 hours without any inclination of a hint that they might unstick themselves.

Make sure you fit yourself properly first. Once you find your size, figure out your shape - different bra shapes will support different boob shapes, surprisingly. I've heard really good things about this bra though:
