If your breasts are set wide apart, you may find that the cups of many bras are too close together to fit you properly even when you have the correct size. This is especially true for those of us who wear an AA, A or B-cup bra. If the cup is too narrow at the sides, it won’t be a good choice even though your measurements may indicate that it should fit.

I hear this complaint often from the women I work with as a fitter, so every now and then I like to offer suggestions on brands and styles for this type of figure. But how do you know if you fall into this category? Wide-set breasts are more than two finger-widths apart, according to lingerie expert Tomima Edmark. You may have noticed that you are cleavage-challenged (don’t worry, I’m in the same boat), or that you can’t find an underwired bra that feels comfortable.

If that sounds familiar, check out the following resource (after the jump) for a better fit.

Custom Lift Satin Demi Bra by Maidenform

I like this company for comfortable, true-to-size bras that are exactly as described. But keep in mind: they don’t last as long as some of the more expensive brands, and the A-cup generally does not fit size AA. Also, every Maidenform bra I’ve ever tried is lined with foam which can wrinkle and stretch over time. This particular style has cups that are set fairly wide apart, making it a good choice for wide-set breasts. It has significant push-up padding in the A and B cup sizes.
