Side support bras definitely don’t get as much credit as they should. We rave about the cleavage enhancing plunges and balconettes or t-shirt bras for everyday wear but seem to forget about side supporters. Great for those who are side heavy or quite full and need more forward projection, they’re not to be ruled out as they can be total lifesavers! Not every bust is perfectly symmetrical or sits to the center, so having a bra style like this is great for helping a girl out if you prefer to be more forward-facing. Not sure whether you need one? Keep reading as we’re going to give you a side support bra breakdown!
One of the main features of a side support bra is that they have sectioned cups, giving ample support. They generally give medium coverage, but never fear those less coverage lovers out there; this’ll still give you a good amount of cleavage! They of course wouldn’t be a side support bra without having added side panels creating that forward projection. Strong side wings on the outer side of the cup, right next to your arm, offer a secure fit so you don’t feel like there’s any unwanted spillage anywhere and it helps create a sleek silhouette.
