Nowadays, more and more girls enjoy the comfort and freedom of not wearing bras.

But for girls with big breasts, enjoying the comfort and freedom of not wearing bras is an extravagant hope. If you do not wear a bra, the gravity of your breasts will bring you embarrassment and discomfort.

They often suffer from physical and mental problems because of their big breasts. Buying the right bra difficultly is one of the most common problems they encounter.

"The beautiful bras are exclusive to small breasts. My big breasts caused me that only can purchase some aunt's style bras that are ugly and expensive. "

"If I don't wear bras, my big breasts will sag to my belly button. But if I wear bras, my whole body will look very bloated. This bothers me a lot!”

“Most bras are not supportive enough for my big breasts. This causes my boobs to shake so much if I walk too fast.” 

That's enough, don't suffer anymore. To make the big-breasted girls free from all kinds of troubles caused by big breasts, today we specially invited senior bra designers to talk about the method of purchasing a suitable bra.

Why is it so difficult to buy a suitable bra for girls with big breasts?

Compared with normal-sized breasts, large-breasted will have more stringent requirements on tailoring and shape of bras. Looking at this picture, you will understand it immediately.

Different breast sizes correspond to reference

One model predicts that if the weight of the breast increases from 100g to 700g (32A cup to 32F cup). Then, the vertical movement of the breasts increased by 70% when not wearing underwear, and increased by 30% when walking. 

Qualified bras for big breasts are required to be comfortable to wear.

It can fix the position of your boobs but also play a supporting function to your boobs.

If these three requirements are met at the same time, it will have high requirements for the design of bras.

If wearing a bra is a pain for you, then the designer of the bra is the one who causes your pain. 

4 situations you will meet when you wearing an unsuitable bra:

Situation 1. Looks bloated after wearing clothes

I don't dare to wear other styles of clothing because of my big breast. Other women wear shirts, they look so neat and high-class. But when I put on a shirt, my breasts bulge so clearly, which gives me a sense of uniform allure. 

Some big-breasted bras especially like to gather together forcibly.

Thick bust pads and hard steel rings give me an uncomfortable experience.

Nowadays, women put comfort the first position when choosing their bras. They are not obsessed with pushing up their boobs any longer.

Situation 2. No matter how thick the bra is, the breast still shakes violently when I walk

Before my period, my breasts always go through a period of swelling and pain. This pain made me not dare to exercise vigorously. Even when I go down the stairs I must be cautious.

It is caused by insufficient support for my bra.

To create the illusion of wearing comfort, some merchants will claim that their bras use highly elastic materials.

Don't be a fool!

For girls with big breasts, the excessive elasticity of the bras is a disadvantage.

If the cup fabric is too elastic, it will not be able to fix the breast well. If the shoulder strap is too elastic, it will lack the bearing capacity, so it is easy to cause shaking.

Situation 3. The steel ring is too pressed. But if wearing a bra without a steel ring, the breast will sag.

Can bra manufacturers consider the suffering of big breasts girls?

Different women have different shapes of breasts, But the steel ring of many bras has a single shape. Wanna find a bra with a suitable steel ring? It depends on your luck.

To be honest, steel rings are very important bra parts for girls with big breasts. A suitable steel ring can provide great support and stability for big breasts and reduce the pulling and shaking of the breast.

Different steel ring shapes in different cups

So the fault is not the steel ring, it is the unreasonable design of the bra.

Situation 4. An empty cup or overflow is a frequent problem to encounter.

Even if you choose the right size, girls with big breasts will still encounter various problems when buying a bra.

If the bra cup is too shallow, it will make my breast overflows. If the bra cup is too deep, it will have a space in my cup. All this makes me doubt myself: Could it be that my breasts are not growing right?

The main reason why girls with big breast are difficult to choose suitable bras is that there is no uniform standard for bra data size. 

Bra manufacturers can only refer to an ordinary bra size standard. But the ordinary bra size standard is completely insufficient to fully and correctly describe the characteristics of female breasts. 

Many bra manufacturers have their models. The breast shape of these models also determines that the brand's bra has certain limitations. It is the main reason why bras cannot match different breast shapes perfectly. 

Effect of different breast type wearing standard cup

By the way, the regional differences also affect the design of the bra.

For example, the breasts of women in the north are mostly disc-shaped. So the cups of underwear brands in the north are generally shallower, and the opposite is true in the south.

Like the Japanese brand Wacoal, the cup chassis is small, deep, and pointed. It is just because Japanese women's breasts are mostly spindle-shaped (papaya-shaped).

Step 1. According to your breast shape choosing a bra

You can imagine your breast like a hemisphere. The chassis of the hemisphere has large or small sizes. The bulge of the hemisphere has high or low height.

When buying a bra, the most frequent problems are: the arc of the steel ring can't press on the breast, or the cup is too deep, causing the overall position of the steel ring or the middle position is painful.

Therefore, the circle disc shape breast should choose a bra with a large opening of the steel ring (that is, a gentle arc) and a slightly shallower cup.

Buying Bra Suggestions for Hemispherical Breast

The character of this breast is a large chassis and high bulge. The ratio of the two is close to 1:1. The shape of the breast is round.

Bra Suggestions for Hemispherical Breast

 The most frequent problem with wearing a bra is:

1. The underwire will press on the chest;

2. Shoulder straps press against the shoulders and indentations appear;

3. Swaying of the breast when walking;

4. Cup overflow.

To choose bras with a rounded bra and cup shape, 3/4 cup or full cup is recommended. The larger the coverage area, the more stable the breast shape and the less pressure on the shoulders.

If you want your breast to look small, remember to choose a single layer of non-stretch lace or embroidered thin cups. this bra of fabric is tight and more stable, and it is more breathable if you wear it in summer.

But girls with papaya shape breasts also buy suitable bras difficultly.

The problems that girls with papaya shape breasts often encounter are:

1. The steel ring of the bra is too large;

2. The cup is not big enough, causing the breast to overflow;

3. The breast shakes violently when they are walking;

4. Insufficient support of bra cups leads to sagging breasts.

Therefore, girls with papaya shape breasts need to buy bras with narrow underwire openings and deep cups. It is best to choose a 3/4 cup or full coverage cup to ensure the wrapping area and stability of the breast. The fabric of the bra cup is preferably light and inelastic.


Step 2. Measure size

The upper circumference and the lower circumference each measure data, many women measure the breast circumference in this way, right?

However, this measurement method is not complete.

Your breast is not a fixed shape, and the size will change when you breathe. It takes five data to measure the chest circumference correctly.

Measure method 1

Measure method 2

1. Two data to measure the lower circumference

When measuring the data, the upper body is naked and the body is upright normally.

loosen-measure-way: Keep breathing normally. Measure the lower circumference with a soft ruler against the skin.

tight-measure-way: Exhale as much as possible, and measure the lower circumference with a soft ruler against the skin.

2. Three data for measuring the upper circumference

Standing upright, leaning body on 45 degrees, bending over 90 degrees

When measuring your upper bust, use the soft ruler to circle around your body at the nipples.

The soft ruler should not be too tight or too loose, just fit the skin.

3. Result in the calculation

Upper bust average - lower bust average = cup

Select the bottom circumference according to the average lower bust circumference.
