Old Breast Forms Style Guide

Breast Form Guide

When choosing a style there are 3 main questions to ask yourself before you begin:

1) Do I want them to look good dressed or just in a bra?

Some styles come up high and will show above the top of the cup when in just a bra. They may
even show in a very low cut top. They do however give the most natural shape when dressed so
it depends on what your needs are. Our style guide below will tell you which pairs are high and
which are low, but as a general rule teardrops and pears come up high, whereas round and
triangle shapes sit low in the bra.

2) What type of back should my breast form have?

All of our pairs are so soft that they can mould to however much or little breast you have. The only
real consideration therefore is if you have a lot of breast tissue (a B cup roughly upwards), ensure
you get a pair with a concave back, but if you have an A cup or lower you will be ok with all styles
and back types.

3) Do I want pert breasts or more subtle breasts?

Teardrop styles are small and pert, whereas others are more subtle. The smaller sized forms
(300g and 400g) will fit most frames, so you can choose if you'd rather a pert teardrop shape or
a more subtle look. With the larger forms it is best to stick to the form that is best suited to your
frame size. All dimensions are given with the products so you can fully understand their size (you
can even draw it on your body in biro to help). We've also detailed whether they are pert or wide
below for you.

Now the fun bit ... Which shape should I buy?

Once you've considered the questions above the rest really is a personal choice. There are 4
main shapes, round, teardrop, pear and triangle. We stock two different teardrop versions so
we have 5 styles altogether.

round shape breast forms

Round breast forms represent the breast well and are a simple and effective breast form shape.
They are a good width for wider frames suiting bras 36" & upwards.

triangle shape breast forms

The triangle shape is a great shape for mid to wide bras (36" upwards). It has the most concave
back out of all the styles so it can accomodate the most amount of natural breast.

teardrop shape breast forms

This is the classic breast form shape and gives a wonderful body shape when dressed. Some
styles can come up higher than other breast forms and so may show above the cup, but it is
this that gives you the lovely shape. Check the dimensions given and compare to your bra to
see how they will fit in.

teardrop shape breast forms

They are a lovely small size width-wise and so are best suited to smaller bras of 28-36". The
smaller 300g and 400g pairs will not work so well with 36" frames (the 500g+ pairs should be
fine) so for those sizes it is probably best to look at the round, triange or pear shapes.

peardrop shape breast forms

These are just like teardrop shapes, but they come to more of a point at the top. Our pear
shape is also flatter and wider than other styles. As a result they are best suited to bras 40"
but those wanting cup sizes up to a C. They do not give as much depth, so for a deeper
breast form you will be best with the round style.

I hope this guide has been of help.
