Not all boobs are exactly the same: Yours might be round, your sister's could be teardrop-shaped, your mother's east-west. You get the picture. Some women also have breasts that differ in size, with one that's a little larger than the other.

According to lingerie company ThirdLove's Fit Finder, an online quiz that calculates a woman's best-fitting bra size and style, about 12% of women have asymmetrical breasts. But intimates brand True & Co. reports an even higher number, saying a whopping 40% of women who take their bra fitting quiz have uneven boobs. Below, explore the best bras for uneven boobs and asymmetrical breasts that deliver the perfect level of coverage, support, and comfort.

The best bras for uneven boobs you can buy

The right way to fit uneven boobs

"To prevent fit issues like cup overflow, women with asymmetrical breasts will want to fit the larger breast first," Cohen tells Health. You'll then want to invest in a bra with removable inserts to help even out your smaller breast, she says. One genius hack? Simply remove the insert for the larger boob while keeping the insert in for the smaller boob. "The insert will help even the breasts out while still providing the lift and support you need."

Consider the material of the bra

If you walk through the undergarments section of a department store and immediately feel overwhelmed, you're not alone. There are so many decisions to make—lace or cotton? No padding or push-up? To make shopping easier, look for bra cups made of soft, supportive material, like memory foam, says Cohen. The reason: Memory foam contours to your body (so you won't be dealing with bra gap), allowing for a super natural fit.

Removable inserts are key

Repeat after us: Stay away from push-up padding. Just don't do it. Push-up bras won't solve the issue, Cohen says. "If you want to even out your breast size, the best solution is to select a bra style that has removable inserts that let you customize your fit and is comfortable for everyday wear."

Whether you're a rightie or a leftie, we've got your bra needs covered. Here are eight of our favorite styles for asymmetrical breasts.

Best Overall: ThirdLove 24/7 Classic Contour Plunge Bra

"Bras with removable inserts allow women with asymmetrical breasts to customize their fit and remain comfortable all day," says Cohen. This bra from ThirdLove has removable inserts, which can be worn in one cup but not the other to help even out the fit. Memory foam cups give your boobs a natural lift and help prevent gape for optimal comfort.

"So perfect I could cry," shared one reviewer. "Not only did this bra completely make me symmetrical, it is so comfortable and secure, I am in shock… This bra has made me pull out all my tops and dresses that I avoid because of my asymmetry and be excited to wear them again. Thank you so much for making such a great bra, it really had made my self-esteem go up and I feel so confident."

Best for Small Boobs: True & Co. True Body Triangle Lace Racerback Bralette

If you have smaller boobs, wireless bras and bralettes are perfect because they mold to fit you no matter the size and shape of your breasts. Also good? Wireless bralettes are smooth and vanish under your clothing, but are still cute enough to show off. This one is available in sizes XS to XL and has an adjustable racerback made of pretty floral lace.

"This racerback bra is fantastic," one Nordstrom shopper wrote. "I have an issue with racerback non-sports bras. They hurt my neck, they are uncomfortable and they usually do nothing for me. This one is amazing! It is soft and smooth. Very light material so you can wear it in 100-degree Fahrenheit Las Vegas heat and be comfortable. It goes with almost every piece in my closet."

Best Full-Coverage: Olga Easy Does It No Bulge Bra

Not only is this comfortable, full-coverage bra made of all-over stretch fabric to accommodate your uniquely shaped asymmetrical boobs, but it also offers extra side coverage panels to smooth out underarm bulge so you feel confident in a tank top or sleeveless dress. Thick straps and a traditional hook and eye closure provide additional support. Choose between 16 color varieties and sizes S to 3XL.

"This bra is not constraining and fits like a glove in all the right places," one customer shared. "I am a breast cancer survivor and it even fits my mismatched boobs. It is very supportive, which was hard for me to believe. I have always had problems fitting my cup size and this did the job just right. So happy with this purchase!"

Best Underwire: ThirdLove 4/7 Lace Balconette Bra

Graced with big boobs? If you need a little more support (read: underwire), consider a T-shirt bra or balconette style, since they will flatter the natural shape and silhouette of your breasts. This stunning bra may resemble lingerie, but it's as comfy as a T-shirt bra with ultra-thin memory foam cups that will mold to your shape.

"I love this bra! It's comfortable for all-day [wear]—feels like your favorite T-shirt bra. It is super for asymmetric breasts. Bonus—it looks great!" raved one reviewer.

Best Wireless: Soma Enbliss Wireless Bra

While it may look like a bralette, this seamless bra (safe under T-shirts!) has full-coverage contour cups to complement the natural shape of your breasts and give you added support. But what we love almost as much as the fit is how freakishly soft the fabric feels against your skin. Even bra haters won't ever want to take it off.

"The bra is so comfortable to wear and I forget at times that I have it on," admitted one shopper. "There is no underwire ready to poke you in the ribs (since it doesn't exist), and the material is soft and conforms to the body."

Best Post-Mastectomy: AnaOno Rora Pocketed Front Closure Bra

"Most patients undergoing lumpectomy will not experience a loss of volume permanently or need a different cup size, but may want to look for a non-underwire, really supportive bra for right after surgery," Sarah P. Cate, MD, FACS, assistant professor of breast surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, previously told Health. Her favorite post-mastectomy bra is the Rora Pocketed Front Closure Bra from AnaOno, a brand founded by breast cancer survivor Dana Donofree with inclusive size and style offerings catering to breast cancer patients and survivors. This bra is designed with pockets in order to comfortably hold expanders, prostheses, or breast forms. It can be worn with or without anything in the pockets and is soft enough that it won't irritate or rub against your sensitive, post-surgery skin. Additional stand-out features include its comfortable compression, convenient front hook openings, and a supportive wide back bridge.

"I bought one of these bras after my mastectomy, after the post-surgery bras from the hospital were scratchy, uncomfortable, and made unsightly lumps under my shirt after 'adjusting' to fit," one reviewer shared. "Since then, I keep coming back to buy more of them! They are soft and comfortable, and adjust to fit with decent support, even when I have one side flat and the other side a D/DD cup."

Best for Big Boobs: Fantasie Fusion Side Support Bra

"This Bra has stretch cups and it's a cut-and-sew, so it'll mold to whatever size and shape you have," Heather Viskovic, Bare Necessities' director of merchandising, bra category, tells Health. "The straps in the back are adjustable to make it a customizable fit." Available in cup sizes DD to HH and band sizes 30 to 40, the bra is a great match for those with a larger bust and offers a comfortable level of support with its supportive underwire and double-layered cups. Mesh detailing adds breathability.

"This is probably the most comfortable support bra ever," wrote one shopper. "It gives me a pretty silhouette. A surprise bonus is the fact [that] the tops of the cups have some stretch, [which] allows both sides to fit smoothly. I'm a little fuller on the left than the right but both sides fit beautifully."

Best Strapless Bra: Cosabella Never Say Never Curvy Flirtie Bandeau

Asymmetrical busts get a lift from the style's bandeau band, which has supportive side boning and silicone grips to create a supportive and secure fit. But the real standout feature is its stretchy, mesh-lined, and wireless design. "This strapless bra has lace and will stretch to accommodate uneven breasts," assures Viskovic. Choose between sizes XS to XL and classic colors like black, white, and beige.
