Breasts with more tissue and a fuller look on the bottom compared
to the top are described as having a shallow top/full bottom shape.

this breast type. T-shirt bras with contour cups that help reshape the
bust are also a good option for women with this breast shape.

East/West Shape Bra Chart

EAST/WEST OR SIDE-SET

Breasts that have more space between them because most of the tissue is
on the sides of the body are described as east/west. Side-set breasts are
similar to east/west breasts in that they gravitate to the side. To center the
bust inside of the body frame, women with east/west or side-set breasts
should choose bras that bring the breasts in. Comfort wire bras are a great
option for women with this type of breast because they help to center the
bust and have virtually undetectable underwires for maximum comfort.
