We all have unique bodies, and breast shapes are no exception. There are many different breast shapes and sizes, and a common breast shape is east west breasts. Here, we'll go through what east west breasts are and recommend the best bra types for an east west breast shape.

What Does it Mean to Have the East West Breast Shape?

East west breasts differ from other breast shapes as this breast shape is classified by breasts having a larger gap between them and pointing outward away from each other. If you have an east west breast shape, it is also common to have nipples pointing away from each other as in opposite directions.

East west boobs may also have more breast tissue on the sides versus the center, which can make it more difficult to create cleavage in certain tops or bras. Women of all sizes can have east west breasts, though this breast shape may be more common in women with smaller breasts.

Importance of Proper Bra Selection for East West Shaped Breasts

Like any breast shape, if you have east west breasts, having a bra that suits your breast type and bra size is key. You will want a bra that fits perfectly as well, to ensure that you get the support you need. Here are some recommendations, so you can find the right bra for your breast shape.

Best Bras for East West Shaped Breasts

If you have east west breasts, certain bra styles will work better for your breast shape than others. Underwire bras are some of the best bra styles for this breast shape. Underwire bras will help support and lift your breast tissue toward the center of your chest. Bras with side support panels are also an excellent choice as they also help to push the breasts forward to create cleavage.

Bras with soft padding or removable pads are also a great option for east west breasts, as they lift the breasts up and forward.
