Do you know your perfect bra size? Every third woman doesn't. Now you can use our Anita Size Calculator to find your perfect bra size.
We will show you which type of bra best suits your figure and your bust type!
Longish, slender breasts with low nipples
The narrow breast usually has its nipples positioned a little lower and the breasts are wider at the top, getting narrower towards the bottom. Women with this type of breast often complain about weak tissue. A slender bust often means a smaller cup size, and it is important to lift and support the breast. Choose a sexy push-up bra, an elegant balconette bra or a bra with moulded cups for additional shape.
Breasts of different sizes
Every woman has some asymmetry in her breasts and that is perfectly normal. For most women, the difference in size is barely noticeable. Some, however, have a visible difference, which may be problematic in terms of cup size.
As long as the difference in size doesn't cause any health issues, you can use some simple tricks and choose the right bra to visually even things out. Ideal for an asymmetrical bust are bras with removable cups, T-shirt bras, push-up bras and bras with moulded cups.
Evenly rounded, full breasts
Is this your bust type? Then you are one of the lucky ones! This type of breast is perfectly rounded, supple and its volume is the same at the top of the breast as at the bottom.
a lot more volume towards the sides
Do you have relatively wide set breasts with a significant gap between them? Then this is your breast shape. Quite similar to the east-west bust, your breasts tend to be rounder and more voluminous towards the sides – unlike an east-west set, however, they are a lot fuller and the nipples are more central.
Choose an underwire bra with good support that gently shapes and pushes your breasts together to create a décolleté. For you, a great choice for a sexy evening outfit is the balconette bra with a plunging décolleté and push-up effect.
The nipples are positioned off-centre, pointing outward
Here, the breasts are positioned towards the sides and the nipples point outward towards the left and right. The job of a bra in this case is to bring the breasts back together towards the middle. It is also important to choose a bra without any seams at the sides that could chafe or even damage the sensitive nipples.
A woman with an east-west bust should therefore choose a comfortable T-shirt bra or a moulded cup bra. An integrated side support not only prevents the breast from overflowing to the sides, it also gently pushes the breasts towards the middle for a gorgeous cleavage.
A muscular, wider breast with less soft tissue
This type of bust is among the less rounded shapes and is usually found on a V-shaped torso.
The athletic bust usually has a larger underbust measurement and a smaller cup. Women with this breast shape often long for a visually larger breast and plumper cleavage.
These are easily achieved with a push-up bra or moulded cup bra. A great choice for this type of bust is also the balconette bra, because the straps are positioned towards the sides and the integrated half-cups help lift and shape the breast tissue for a gorgeous cleavage.
Volume in the lower area of the breast
Women with bell-shaped breasts have very little soft tissue at the top of the chest, but a lot of volume at the bottom. This bust type usually needs a bigger cup and the weight of the breasts means that you should look for a bra that offers firm support and a great hold.
A good choice would be e.g. a bra with moulded cups, a balconette bra or a full coverage bra. The good old underwire bra is an absolute all-rounder. It not only offers perfect support, but also shapes a beautifully rounded breast.
Fullish, round breast towards the bottom, centred nipples
This very symmetrical looking bust has the breasts becoming fuller towards the bottom – just like a drop of water. This is a very common bust type for women with big cup sizes.
It is also a pretty uncomplicated bust when it comes to buying a bra. Underwire bras with or without cup not only offer the support this bust needs, but also creates a beautiful cleavage.
Single or double mastectomy
Breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in women. That is why our Anita care line deals specifically with the requirements of women after a mastectomy.
Our customised and extra-skin-friendly breast prostheses and compensatory cups offer an easy solution for a visual reconstruction of the bust line.
