Who Should Wear a Full Cup Bra?

Full cup bras are designed with coverage and shaping in mind, which makes them great for:

  • Women with full or large breasts
  • Women who want extra support and shaping from their bra
  • Women with loose breast tissue who need more shaping
  • Women who want something modest
  • Women who are looking for a comfortable bra
  • Women who 'spill out' of bras with lesser coverage
  • Moms who have breast fed or found that they've lost firmness
  • Women who are concerned about 'sagging'
  • Petite women who wear small band sizes but have large breasts

Full cup bras may not be ideal for:

  • Women with smaller breasts
  • Women with firm breasts
  • Women who prefer less coverage

There's nothing 'wrong' with wearing a full cup bra if you've got smaller breasts or firm breast tissue, but most women who don't need a full cup bra would prefer to wear something with less coverage. Full cup bras can feel too large or restrictive for women with firmer or smaller breasts.
