As women, we’ve all been through the grind of trying to find the perfect bra style for our body type. Some bras can make you look too busty, some not enough, and some just don’t hang right. The struggle is real…we know!
It’s important to remember that no two women are shaped alike. Therefore, every bra fits every woman differently and you’d be surprised what a difference a slight curve here and there can make. Furthermore, if you’re on the full figured side, you’re no stranger to this plight. The bras either lack the right support, or allow spillage around the sides or make you look insanely top-heavy—a nightmare you relive pretty much every day!
Well ladies, this is where the nightmare ends because we’re here to the rescue. While there’s no one perfect bra out there, we’ve taken the liberty to curate a list of bra styles that compliment the vivacious body type and provide the right support and shape to help you flaunt those curves.
1) Full Coverage Bras
Bustier women are usually not pigeon-chested and this makes plunge bras a big no-no for them (you don’t want your boobs falling out of the wrong places). Full coverage bras are the go to option for fuller women looking for effortless support and comfort without having to shift and adjust all day.
2) Underwire Bras
Underwire bras are an ideal choice for women with larger and fuller breasts. They are non-padded bras with just an underwire at the bottom to prevent the breasts from sagging. The underwire provides impeccable support and comfort, while preventing the woman from looking overly busty (one of the many flaws of padded bras).
3) Push Up Bras
Unlike petite ladies, bustier women need a lot more support for their breasts to prevent them from sagging. Push-up bras are molded bras that come with push up pads and an underwire at the bottom. We recommend this bra for women who are looking for that extra support and lift. However, a lot of push-up bras tend to have a bombshell (extremely thick) padding, so make sure to stay far away from those!

4) Balconette Bra
Balconette bras are ideal for women with bigger breasts. They provide up to three-fourth coverage–minimal on top but a good amount of coverage and support at the bottom. They have a wide set of straps to allow maximum support, separation and a natural-looking lift.
5) Contour Bras
Contour bras, better known as T-shirt bras are thinly padded bras with an underwire. These bras are a great option for everyday wear under shirts and t-shirts. They give a smooth and seamless look while also providing good shape and support.
6) Minimizer Bras
A minimizer is a full coverage bra that’s designed to reduce the appearance of the bust by 1-2 inches. This one’s a lifesaver for top-heavy women who are really conscious about appearing too busty and would give anything just to mask a few inches here and there.
So there you have it…six ideal bra styles for all you vivacious ladies out there. Now that you know what you’re looking for, there’s no more room for rookie mistakes…and DEFINITELY no more hiding under baggy clothes. Just get out there and don’t stop till you find your perfect match!
