What bra to wear with a Narrow front

If you are comfortable going strapless then a strapless bra is the simplest solution. If you aren’t you can pull the straps together in front with a bra strap connector. For best results use a bra that has straps that are fairly close together, widely set straps like on a demi cup bra will end up being pulled too far and probably cause some mis-shaping.

Some convertible bras will have straps that can hook in close to the middle of the bra. These aren’t very common but if you want to do this and can’t find one you can add extra places to hook the straps into yourself. There is a tutorial for this at the bottom of the convertible bras page.
