When looking for a bra to work with your figure, everyone is going to have different features they look out for. However, classic bra tops are often a very similar, uniform style. “They usually come with wires and adjustable straps for maximum support and comfort,” says Empreinte’s bra-fitting expert Josie-Anne Le Diouron, who says this type will have construction similar to lingerie is recommended for heavier breasts.

The bandeau style is an elegant, timeless piece and is ideal for tanning, even though it doesn't seem like the best bikini for big bust. Diouron suggests, “Medium support due to the absence of straps, for larger breasts, an underwired style will provide extra support and help create a beautiful separation of the breast for a flattering silhouette.”

But meanwhile, the halter bra top usually comes with no wires or short wires, which means low to medium support and a glamorous look with a low, seductive neckline. Diouron says this style is recommended for a V-shape body type as it helps visually reduce the width of the shoulders.
