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.
