(SPOT.ph) In the same way that clothes look and feel the best when they fit us properly—check out our guide to building a timeless wardrobe if you want to know why—our underwear has the same effect. When your bras, panties, shapewear, and the like are just right for your specific body shape, not only will they make you feel more comfortable and at ease, but they’ll make the clothes worn over them look more polished and put-together. Bras in particular can be hard to pick out as women who choose to wear them are each targeting different preferences and finding styles for varying sizes, shapes, and clothes. Below, we list 10 great options for those with larger busts and bigger breasts.
As we previously mentioned in our list of great bras for the, er, not so blessed, there are many factors to consider when choosing a bra. To find a bra that suits your body type, be sure to identify the shape and build of your bust. For instance, if the twins are bigger on the bottom, you’re more likely to benefit from a wider band underneath whereas if your gals are fuller on the side or tend to lean away from each other, bras with wider backs and thicker straps may be more up your alley. The point is to choose bras that cater to whatever unique shape you're rocking up top—there’s more to the right bra than finding one that’s your size. For those who are blessed in the upper torso department, we round up 10 bras that offer ample support and form-flattering shapes to keep your girls in check and make them look great under your clothes.

Smooth Finish Push Up Bra (P2,150) from Maidenform
Underwire can be a nuisance for both its tendency to show through clothing and to dig into the skin.

But don’t worry, it is indeed possible to rock a wired brassiere without discomfort—this Maidenform bra is proof. Though it looks smooth and seamless on the outer side, this push-up bra actually houses hidden underwire and a fully lined frame, providing support and structure to your breasts minus the pain of heavy wiring. The open neckline allows you to wear the bra with a variety of necklines while the wide, body-hugging base makes sure to keep your girls in check even when you’re rocking a loose or plunging top.

Maximizer 025 Wired Detachable Bra (P1,495) from Triumph

Try this push-up bra from Triumph, which features a wired build for added structure, a wide base for extra support, and a smooth, invisible finish that won’t bulge out under your clothing.

Triangular Padded Bra (P1,250) from Women’Secret
Triangular bras tend to work better for those who are less chesty as they don’t offer quite as much hold up top, but if you prefer that silhouette to a rounded shape, go for a bra with underwire and heavy bottom support like this piece from Women’Secret. Aside from extra hold underneath, it also features wide side panels—perfect for wider set breasts. Plus, its smooth, seamless exterior would make any top look effortlessly polished.

Alpha UltraBreathe Sports Bra (P3,195) from Nike
If you’ve got sizeable knockers, you probably skip over the light- and medium-support sections of your go-to activewear shops. When choosing a high-support sports bra, we recommend a racerback for extra hold on the back and a slightly higher neckline to prevent accidental slips, bouncing, or spillage. This Nike sports bra, which has an additional panel up top for extra hold, would be a good pick. Despite its ultra-supportive build, it promises a lightweight and breathable fit as well a fast-drying fabric—no one wants sweat pooling up between the twins.
Available online; see a list of Nike stores.
