How To Shop The Best Bras For Your Shape, According To An Expert

Buying the right bra won’t just enhance your figure – it’ll also give you the right levels of support and comfort. Combining form and function, Nudea’s sustainable collection contains elevated everyday bras for all shapes and sizes – here’s what you need to know to find the right one for you…

Created in partnership with Nudea

The importance of wearing the correct bra  for your breast shape is something the team at Nudea knows all too well. And when it comes to finding the right size and fit for yours, the brand can offer its customers expert advice, the right tools – including virtual fittings and its cult Fit Tape – and plenty of stylish underwear solutions. Here, founder Priya Downes tells us more about how to find for the right bra for you.

The Easy Does It Bralette Second Skin, £35

If your breasts form a teardrop shape, with more weight in the lower half, there are plenty of options to choose from. “While balcony styles will make a big difference in terms of volume, bralettes might offer more appeal for everyday comfort. For a comfortable non-wired option for bigger busts try The Easy Does It Bralette F+,” says Priya. 

The Go To T-Shirt Bra, £45

“If your breasts have a tendency to lean outwards in opposite directions, it’s important to look for a bra that will gently coax them towards the centre. T-shirt bras are a great option and this Nudea one is designed to mould to your body and is great for larger busts too..” 

The Boss Full Cover Bra, £45

Breasts that are thinner at the top and fuller at the bottom require more support and lift. “Better lift can be helpful in creating a more even and rounded shape, and the Boss style offers exactly that. This bra is great for larger sizes, too, providing that added security and coverage.”  

Scoop Neck Bralette, £32

For a separated bust that is on the fuller side, it’s push-up styles that work best. “The Scoop Neck bralette is designed to lift and support but still with that comfort-first fit. For larger bust sizes The Go To T-shirt Bra will also help create a beautiful form.”

Semi Demi in Monogram Mesh

“For shapes which are equally full top and bottom and rounded in appearance, thin, non-lined styles and balcony silhouettes like the Semi Demi will maintain the natural shape and cleavage. Larger busts with this shape can also try The Boss Full Coverage Bra for a little more support.” 

The TENCEL™ Seamless Bralette

“A plunge bra is great if you have slim breasts in need of a little upward lift. As well as opting for extra shape via some light padding, smaller breast shapes are also best suited to soft, seamless styles,” explains Priya.
