Strategies for Lifting and Providing Support to Side Set Breasts

Side set breasts, often characterized by a contour that leans slightly towards the sides, can either be a natural occurrence or a result of breast reconstruction. They typically exhibit a more prominent gap between them, allowing for greater visibility of the chest and ribcage, especially if you have a wider-set ribcage.

Cup sizes can vary significantly with this breast shape, influenced in part by your torso and ribcage configuration. Nipple orientation, while diverse, should not be a cause for concern, as they can point in various directions or may even be repositioned through reconstruction.

At Coobie , we celebrate the beauty and diversity of all breast shapes. Our mission is to empower you to embrace and love your unique breasts, and confidently choose attire that suits your individual style and comfort.

How Do You Know If Your Boobs Are Side Set?

Determining if your breasts are side set often revolves around their placement rather than their size or shape. Side set breasts typically exhibit a wider gap between them at the center of the chest, with breast tissue that appears fuller and nipples oriented forward.

So, if you notice a significant space between your breasts with nipples facing frontward, you may identify your breast type as side set. This characteristic may still be present, regardless of whether you have smaller or larger breasts or whether they appear bell-shaped or flat. In some cases, individuals may develop side set breasts, even after breast reconstruction, with well-positioned nipples.

Steer Clear of Underwire

Underwire bras may not be the best choice for wider chests as they can often result in an ill fit and discomfort. In an attempt to find underwire cup sizes that accommodate the width, you might end up with bras that are larger than your actual size, leading to gaping and bulging in less than desirable areas.

Additionally, techniques like the 'bend over and scoop' can sometimes push the breasts into a shape or position that doesn't feel natural and can leave you feeling uneasy. For a more comfortable and flattering option, we recommend trying the V-Neck Lace Trim Bra . It's a fun, flirty, and sexy choice that beautifully complements side set chests without the discomfort of underwire.
