How to Find the Right Bra for Lopsided Breasts

No matter the size or shape of your breasts, finding a comfortable, flattering, bra is really important. A well-fitting bra will minimize jiggling, support you while you're playing sports, and even help improve your posture. What's amazing is how difficult a task being fitted correctly seems to be. So much so that a recent study revealed over 80% of the women you see are more than likely wearing the wrong size bra! To make sure you're not one of them, we've compiled a few facts for you to read before your next shopping trip! The easiest way to assure the proper fit is to go to a store that has a staff of bra experts to assist you. If that's not possible (or you're too shy) then at least make sure you measure yourself before you leave home. The most accurate method is to follow these simple steps... 

  • As your chest size increases, so does your cup size.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to find the right bra.
  • Be prepared to try on several different styles and sizes.
  • Double-check by putting your shirt back on to see how it looks.
  • If you're buying a sports bra, jump up and down a few times to make sure it's giving you enough support.
  • Understand while they do have a tendency to compress the breast, they are a terrific help when you're running around.


Beware of the warning signs of an ill-fitting bra...Does the back ride up? It should lie straight across your back. If the bra rides up across your breasts, the band is too loose. Are your breasts overflowing...or are the cups not completely filled? Do you see any bulges? Is it cutting into your flesh anywhere? Are the shoulder straps falling off your shoulder...or digging into your shoulder? Are the edges of the bra lying flat against your breast? Investigate the different varieties...minimizers and padded bras, underwires and push-up bras. If you choose a color, be aware the ones closest to your skin tone will be the least noticeable under light-colored clothing. If it's a front closure, make sure it doesn't pop open too easily. A new bra should fasten in the middle or last hook because it will stretch with time. And buy one at a time to make sure it's as comfortable after a whole day as it was in the store.
