When shopping for bras, many women simply consider their bra size, but it is also important to consider your breast shape. There are many different breast shapes including round breasts, asymmetrical breasts, teardrop breasts, side set breasts, slender breasts, and relaxed breasts. Another breast shape is bell shaped breasts. If you have bell shaped breasts, you may struggle to find a bra that fits well and flatters your natural shape. Keep reading the article below where we go through everything you need to know about bell shaped breasts, and recommend the best bra style for this unique breast shape.

What Are Bell Shaped Breasts?

Bell shaped breasts are those that are fuller at the bottom than the top. If you have this breast shape, you likely have more breast tissue in the bottom of your bust, as opposed to a round breast shape which is full throughout. If you have bell shaped breasts, the majority of your breast tissue likely lies beneath your nipple placement.

How to Tell If I Have Bell Shaped Breasts?

You can tell if you have bell shaped breasts by looking in the mirror at your breasts. If your breasts have more volume at the bottom, and form a gentle sloping shape from top to bottom, then you likely have bell shaped breasts. This breast shape mimics the shape of a bell: it is fuller at the bottom.

Are There Any Special Considerations for Bell Shape Breasts?

Different bras will work better with different boob shapes. Knowing your bust shape and your proper bra size is key to finding a bra that fits well and provides the comfort, coverage, and support your breast shape needs.

How Should Bell Shaped Bras Fit?

If you have bell shaped breasts, you will want a bra that encapsulates the fuller breast tissue at the bottom of your bust. Generally speaking, most bras work well with this breast shape. Balconette bra styles work well with this bust shape, as do full coverage bras that comfortably encapsulate your bust. You might prefer a push up bra that lifts the breast tissue to create cleavage, but not every woman prefers this bra style as it can also make bell shaped breasts appear even fuller than they are at the bottom. A full coverage bra that is unlined and unpadded will also work well with this breast shape, especially if you have a larger chest.

Like all breast shapes, you will want to find a bra that beautifully accentuates your natural shape and provides the comfort and support you need to go throughout your day.

What Types of Bras Work Best With Bell Breast Shapes?

If your breasts are bell-shaped, you want a style that provides lift and support from underneath your bust. Bell shaped breasts are naturally fuller at the bottom, so a bra style that lifts the bust up and accentuates your natural shape is best.
