The Best Bra for Wide Set Breasts

An info graphic that says "the best bra for wide set breasts, comfort without compromise.

Having wide set breasts can be make it challenging to find a bra that fits comfortably and provides the correct amount of support. Below you will find reviews, tips and information about wide spaced breasts.


How we reviewed and rated our top bra picks for wide set breasts!

We have taken a look at just about every bra out on the market in order to narrow them down into what are the best bras for wide set breasts. Our decision was based of of three basic must haves and they are as follows:

  • Center Gore – This is the width of the material in the front of the bra that connects the cup. We also took into consideration the overall measurement from center cup to center cup. Obviously this was the key factor in finding bras with wide spaced cups.
  • Overall Comfort – This is a big one and was just as important as spacing, who wants to wear something uncomfortable? Not you and not me!
  • Quality – There is no sense in buying a bra that will not keep it’s shape or comfort. It is simply a waste of money and was rated second most important after spacing and comfort.

We did not use cost as one of the major  ranking factors because we value function, quality and comfort above saving a few bucks. With that being said we did use it as a fourth deciding factor when the big three factors were so close or the same. Available size, style and color were minor factors that were considered secondly.

AAA, AA and A Cup Bras for Wide Set Breasts

We ran into a very clear winner for smaller busted ladies very quickly, Lula Lu Petites bras. The reason for this is that most small busted women tend to have wide spaced breasts simply because the breasts sit so close to the rib cage. Now the challenge was to find a bra that did not cup gap or ride up. These bras were simply spectacular in every aspect from comfort to quality and fit and feel. Truly an amazing bra, how often do you hear that?

Information About Wide Set Breasts

Wide set breasts are found in all cup sizes from AAA cups to J Cups and larger. More often than not though women with a larger bust sizes (size C cup and up) have a much harder time finding a good fitting bra.

What defines wide set breasts

Wide set breasts are defined as “breasts that are far apart from each other, separated by 2 ½ inches of space or more at the top of the breasts.” Spacing can vary greatly from a little more than 3 inches up to and over 5 inches. Broad shouldered and bigger built woman are more likely have a wider separation between their breasts. The size of the sternum/chest overall also impacts how widely the breasts are spaced.

Cleavage gap

Most bras will push your breast to the center in order to create cleavage. This poses a problem for women with wide set breasts because their breasts naturally will pull to their sides and will not properly align within the cups. You can see this in the picture to the left. This creates much unneeded discomfort and results in underwire bra poke, breast tissue spilling out to the sides and poor support. Touching cleavage is just not possible for most women with wide set breasts.


Breasts are unique

Having a large separation between the breasts its not uncommon at all, we litterally have thousands of women just like you land on this page searching for information. Having wide spaced boobs is not something that you should worry about, be ashamed of or insecure about. Each woman’s breasts are unique to her, like a fingerprint.

In this picture to the left you can see how the bra is gaping terribly on the inside. This is due to wearing a bra with cups that are too close together. The breast is naturally pulling outward , fighting the bra and ultimately causing comfort and appearance issues.


Breast augmentation for wide set breasts

Some women may search out breast augmentation procedures to “correct” what they think is a problem when it is completely natural to have a gap between their breasts. Media, celebrities and plastic surgeons love to push the “barbie doll syndrome” in order to make money of off unneeded surgery. Just for the record there is no surgery procedures to move the breasts closer to center.
