25 Types Of Bras For Every Breast Shape And Size, According To Experts

Picking the right bra just got a whole lot easier.

When bra shopping, it can be hard to know what you need. It’s easy to get infatuated with the first cute piece of lingerie you see without knowing if it’s the right fit for your breast shape.

"Bras are not created equal," says Eleni Barbieri, owner of The Bra Ladies Boutique in Connecticut. "There's so many different styles out there for so many different body types."

Every woman should have five types of bras: t-shirt, seamed, strapless, sexy, and leisure, says Lori Kaplan, owner of Bra Tenders in New York City.

"You wanna grow into your bra," Kaplan says. In practice, that means the right bra will fit on the first hook and about halfway up the strap. Once adjusted to your body, a well-fitted bra should sit right below your ribcage. To put it on, lean forward to clip it from behind, then drop each breast in the cups, advises Barbieri.

Once you know your breast shape and size (which hopefully you do!), select the right bra with this expert-approved guide.
