Breast shape and size can vary depending on a number of factors, like your genes, but they may also change slightly as your body moves through different stages of life – whether from your teens to adulthood, from your 40s to your 60s, whether you have children, both while pregnant and then after, and so many other life stages. And while most bra shapes and styles can be worn by all women, there are some that may work better than others for comfort and fit depending on your breast shape. That’s where our fit specialists can help.
