Classify Your Breasts: Deflated Upper Breasts

deflated upper breast

Deflated fullness means the upper breast tissue is almost or completely gone. This deflation contributes to breasts sagging and becoming pendulous – a very common occurrence in older women. Deflation can also result from tremendous weight loss, and/or a severe illness.

Bra suggestions for women with deflated upper breasts:

  • First, it’s very important that you lean forward and place your breasts in the bra cups before fastening your bra. This will go a long way towards giving your breasts their optimal full look.
  • Cut & Sew bras where there are seams in the cups will give you great support, coverage and shape. This style of bra is your best bet in all cup sizes.
  • Contour cup bras (molded bras with a thin layer of foam for modesty and shape) are a good choice for giving you a rounded and full look. But make sure not to pick full coverage contour bra because there could be gaps. And if you are larger than a DD cup size, contour bras are not as supportive.
  • A soft-cup bra (bra without underwires) that has structure and seams in its cups will feel very comfortable to you. But pull-over, unstructured soft-cup bras will give you a saggy look
  • A push-up bra is a possibility, but you should not expect mounding or cleavage. And this style is not recommended if you are larger than a D cup size.
  • Full coverage cups will also give you a fuller look by covering the shallowness of your upper breasts. Cut & Sew bras where there are seams in the cups will give you great support, coverage and shape.
  • Bras with triangle shaped cups tend to mask your shallowness.
  • Demi bras, plunge bras and balconette bras should be avoided because you won’t have enough upper breast tissue to fill out the cups, what upper tissue you have will look jiggly.
