Best Bras To Deal With Armpit Rolls & Double Boobs

 armpit rolls are migrated breast tissue   breast tissue migrated to the back

I´ve talked about how armpit rolls and back fat is actually migrated breast tissueGathering all the tissue back into a correctly fitted bra gets the tissue back to the breasts. However, certain bra models help the whole process.

   The best bras for quickly getting the migrated tissue back are ones that come up high at the armpits. A good example is the Panache Tango Plunge. As you can see on this photo, the underwire is long, meaning it goes high up the armpit. The long underwires along with the snug band will keep the breast tissue from escaping again. These photos show another comparison. (Most plunge bras go up high under the armpit).
   Also, migration bras must be soft. Padded bras force mould the breasts into their own shape.

Some good bras to help with migration:

Freya (narrow underwires): Polyanna, Antoinette, Rio, Arabella and Eleanor 
Panache (broad underwires): Sienna, Harmony, Fiesta, Tango
Curvy Kate: Emily, and probably the rest of them too.

Tips for dealing with armpit rolls:

  • Store catalogue photos may not be an accurate guide to whether a bra goes up high below the armpits. Tall models have much longer ribcages than us mere mortals, so bras tend to look smaller and less built-upon them. The Balkonetka catalogue might help with its real-life photos. When buying from Ebay, the sellers always provide the length and width of the underwire on request.
  • Petites might find highly-buit-up bras uncomfortable (the long underwired poke into the armpit). They might find regular underwire length enough. Check out Petite Seeks Bras To Fight Underarm Bulges.
  • After the migrated tissue moves back in, you´l probably go up a cup size. Moral: don´t spend a lot of money on your first bras, and don´t buy too many of them. Just two are enough for the first month, after that you need to measure yourself again.
  • This won´t work if you aren´t wearing the right size !

  1. Hey, I really love your blog! I went from a size 36A to a 30D hahaha! It's the first time a bra has ever felt so comfortable. I used to take it off as soon as I got home everyday, and my breast would hurt. I'm so happy now :D

  2. I used to do that too ! Now I don´t of course. I´m happy for you !

  3. Thanks for your amazing bog! I have learned so much about bras. Do you recommend any of the Ewa Michalak bras for this purpose? Thanks.

  4. It seems as if you have had no visitors for a long time.
    I am having great trouble finding the bra I need, It is a 46 J. It is incredibly difficult to find them and when you do they are high under the arms. I am only 5ft 2 ins and the wires stick in me under arms. Even if I manage to find a bra with this size cup you will say it is not the correct size because the wires tend to stand proud at the front.
    I have tried and tried to be measured for bras and no one can offer any different advice. Probably because it still is not quite the correct size ant help is appreciated


  5. Hey susiblue
    The Ewa Michalak bras have moderately high underwires -- so I guess they are not especially good for this, unless you are petite or have high set breasts (then the bras would be very high for you).

  6. Frilly
    Try Ewa Michalak bras, they are moderately high under the arms and there is a lot to choose from in the size 46J.

  7. I was wondering if you could comment on if it is possible to successfully migrate tissue back without the long wired bras. I started my process back in September and still have spillage under the arm and a bit around the band (exacerbated on one bra in particular). No matter how much I swoop and scoop the tissue just won't pull forward into the cup. It's a bit frustrating because I don't feel like I am seeing any progress even though I feel like my bras are fitting better and whiling me better during the day!
