Best bra to create cleavage - small 30F with wide splayed boobs!
I'm a similar shape. I find moulded cups are an absolute disaster, and for some reason all Wonderbras and most Freya bras seem to be moulded atm. Agree Panache Tango plunge is pretty good. When you're looking for bras online, look for ones that have the same seaming as that, as it's the seams that give the shape.
I like the Bravissimo Satine. I have mostly Freya, which are good, supportive front facing and subtly in your face bras but this style is strangely working for me. I'm now a 28ff after children so needed some direction .
I've had that one, and it worked well for a wide set friend too. It's not so much the narrowness of the gore but finding one where the cup depth is in the right place to hold you pointing the right way -if the cup depth is in the wrong place the cleavage will disappear!
Yes, you want a plunge bra (as little across the bottom as possible and straps that you can tighten a bit more than usual so you can "hoik" upwards. Not sure that you will get touching boobs without some additional padding at the sides, but you can get a cleavage. Wonderbra are the best at this but Debenhams have a pretty good range of these and their own so if there's one near you go and try a few on
As above, I read in a Trinny and Susannah book that if you want 'one off' cleavage, buy a bra in a smaller cupsize, then shorten the straps/loosen the back so that it sits higher up than usual. Not for everyday!
I have done this and variants thereof depending on the shape of a dress and it works quite well.
