SHAPES

BREAST SHAPES

Different root shapes, combined with different places your fullness lies, creates many wonderful breast shapes. Some examples:


BELL

Tall and narrow roots, projected/bottom-full, relaxed.

SPLAYED

Projected/ side-full, typically with tall roots, nipples pointing outward.

OMEGA

Narrow and short roots, projected/full all-around.

BALLOON

Wide and tall roots, projected/full all-around. Balloon shapes tend to struggle to make the center gore tack. If it’s painful to separate your breasts, it’s not necessary for the center gore to touch your sternum. If you want your breasts to be separated, look for bras with narrow gores.

PLATE

Wide roots, not very projected.


OTHER FACTORS THAT DETERMINE BREAST SHAPE


SELF-SUPPORTING OR RELAXED


Breasts tend to become more relaxed with age, though they can be weighed down by gravity at any age. Breastfeeding itself doesn’t necessarily make breasts more relaxed, but weight loss can trigger it. There are no muscles in your breasts, so exercise cannot prevent breasts from becoming more relaxed.


ASYMMETRY


Breasts can be mismatched in size and/ or shape.


IMF* HEIGHT *INFRAMAMMARY FOLD


This is the level of the bottom of your roots. Most people’s IMF starts somewhere between the armpit and the elbow, but they can start much lower/at stomach-level, or much higher/below your chin.

Low IMF Height

Average IMF Height

High IMF Height
