Your Cup Size: A or B
Your Best Bet:
A compression bra
It provides sufficient support without the bells and whistles that often make bras uncomfortable. Expect a sleek design that includes a plain front panel that serves to hold by pressing breasts against the body.


Your Cup Size: C
Your Best Bet:
An encapsulation bra
It has cups, so it’s sized accordingly; rather than “Small,” “Medium” and “Large,” you’ll find the custom fits you’re used to—but with greater support. What’s more? You’ll dodge the whole uni-boob effect, which is never flattering.



Your Cup Size: D or larger
Your Best Bet:
A compression/encapsulation bra
Think of it as a double bra. Typically, it’s twice as thick as other styles and has added features that provide extra coverage: Look for thicker side panels and wider straps, plus cups that support and a panel that compresses. (It’s a win-win!)
