If you always thought there were only two kinds of breast/ B00BS—big or small—your mind is about to be blown. According to the bra company, women have some different sets of B00BS.
While ALL types of B00BS are perfectly normal and beautifully imperfect, knowing your B00B shape can help you get the best bra fit.
All B00BS (and nipples) are totally normal, but identifying your exact shape can find you the best bras for your shape.
Here are the nine types of B00BS/ Breast in the world
This refers to sets of B00BS where one is larger (or smaller) than the other. Push-up bras with removable pads would probably work best, as you can even out your breasts by removing or adding pads.
Look best in Bras with removable pads, so you can wear a pad (or two) on the smaller side to even out your look.
In case you were wondering, you don’t have to be an intense athlete to have athletic B00BS. These breasts are wider, more muscular-looking, and have less tissue. A wireless bra is perfect for wider B00BS — it’ll provide comfort and support!

If your nipples point in opposite directions outward, you probably have east-west breasts. We recommends push-up bras, as they will help gather your breasts to the front of your chest.
Look best in Push-up or T-shirt styles, which flatter your natural shape while comfortably bringing your B00BS closer together.
For the relaxed type, your B00BS typically hang downwards and have lax tissue. Though a T-shirt or push-up bra will definitely give your girls a little lift, it’s totally fine to embrace your B00BS as they are.
Look Best in T-shirt and Push-up bra
Bell shape breasts are thinner at the top and fuller at the bottom. Not surprisingly, they look like bells! A comfy, lifting T-shirt bra would work best for your shape.
Look best in Full-coverage styles. Because the boobs are heavier, they can drag down the shoulders, causing the straps to slip (and reduce support).
Having a slender shape doesn’t necessarily mean that you wear a smaller cup size. It just means that your B00BS are on the thinner side — they probably don’t take up your entire chest. Bras with a deep plunge can help gather your breasts towards the centre.
Look best in Plunge styles, with or without push-up material. The plunge helps pull the B00BS toward the middle to create a bit of cleavage.
Your B00BS can be called side set if you have a little space between your breasts. A front close bra — one that fastens in the front — would be ideal for your breast type!
Look best in Balconette styles, which have more fabric above the cups to disguise a larger gap between breasts.
Just as you would expect, round B00BS are the type that is fully circular, and equal at the top and bottom of the breasts. Lucky for you, you can pretty much pull off any style of bra with this shape.
Look best in Balconette styles, which show off your perky shape. Consider Round B00BS to bras as the Oval face to haircuts: They can pull off anything. (Lucky you.)
Similar to round breast, the teardrop shape is circular, but your B00BS are a little less full at the top. You can also rock any style if you have this type!
Look best in Plunge styles, with or without push-up material. The deeper neckline and cups create lift, which helps fill in the shallower top of the breasts.
Different types of nipples
- Bumpy: Montgomery glands are prevalent
- Flat: nipples blend into the areolas
- Hairy: hair growth on areolas
- Inverted: nipples retract inward to the areola
- Protruding: nipples extend outwards from areolas
- Puffy: the nipple and areolas form a unison raised mound
- Supernumerary: extra nipple
- Unilateral inverted: one nipple retracts inward to the areola
Note: nipple color and areola width also varies with each type and also nipples can be inverted to varying degrees
