The Ultimate Guide to Shallow Breasts

If you have read our guide to breast shapes, you already know about shallow breasts. In this post, we’ll dive deeper into shallow breasts and highlight the best bras for them.

Overview of Shallow Breasts

Shallow breasts appear flat since they spread out on the chest. The breasts do not have a lot of depth and are the opposite of projected breasts, which protrude forward or pop out. If your boobs are closer to and start a little higher on the chest, they are most likely shallow breasts.

When you view shallow breasts from the side, they appear near the torso. Moreover, since they are more spread out, they look like start upper on the chest.

Most women with shallow breasts feel that they do not have to wear a bra.

What Are Shallow Breast Sizes?

Generally, shallow breasts fit smaller cup sizes (usually A through E). However, you may have a big bust but still have shallow breasts.

Keep in mind that shallow does not mean “small breasts”. When talking about shallowness, we are referring to the shape but not the size of the boobs.

Most ladies with shallow breasts feel that they should wear smaller bra sizes than their true sizes. This is because the tissue of a shallow boob is more spread out, and this is why it looks small.

Find the Right Bra for Shallow Breasts

Most people do not understand shallow breasts. As a result, they end up buying bras that don’t fit.

Well, finding a bra for shallow boobs can be a bit tricky, even after measuring your breast size properly. For women with shallow breasts, most of the time, every bra seems too big since the boobs do not fill the entire cup.

The best way to find the right bra size for shallow breasts is to fit the bra.

With that said, there are a number of tips you should keep in mind when shopping for a bra if you have shallow boobs:

  • The ideal bras for shallow breasts do not have horizontal seams. Bras with horizontal seams have more projection and shallow breasts may not fill the cups entirely.
  • Generally, you can get away with wearing balconettes
  • The best bras for shallow breasts are those with open tops. With these bras, the cup won’t squeeze into your breast and leave you with a quad boob.
  • Look for bras with tall, shallow cups.
  • Padded bras work for some women with shallow breasts. Try them to see whether they will be right for you. The padding will fill the areas of the cup where the breasts can’t reach.
  • Avoid plunge bras if they shape your boobs in a weird shape
  • Since the breast tissue starts high on the chest, wearing push up bras will make the boobs look unnatural
