Do you mean they stick out above the top of your cup?  That sounds like you need a larger cup.

Or you need a bra with more coverage…

Maybe try a bra that’s cut differently…like not a demi?

If you’re nipples hang out, you need a bigger cup size. It has nothing to do with the shape of the cup.

@Willow1991:  I’ve seen it around.  You could always go to Victoria’s Secret and have them size you.

I would recommend that you go to a specialty store or high-end department store that will officially measure you and show you how a bra should fit you properly. Most women who have not been fitted professionally are wearing the wrong bra size.

Even if you’re wearing a bra with demi-cups, your areola should not be visible above the cup line. And, if, instead, you are referring to protruding nipples, you can purchase various types of lingerie accessories that you can insert into the cup of a properly fitted bra to reduce this affect.

ETA:  You easily can find beautiful bras up to a 38 Dirty Delete cup. Victoria’s Secret and major department stores have them. Those of us who require a larger cup size have a much more challenging time finding PRETTY bras that fit us. I have to travel hours to visit a specialty boutique or Nordstrom or order them online after I already know a particular style will fit.

@Willow1991:  I worked for VS for 5 years, they make that size in quite a few bras. If your band in your existing bra fits, then don’t go down a band size. If the cup is your only issue, then just go up to a 34C. Believe me, I was one for years and it’s not as big as it sounds.

I’d second (or third!) getting sized by someone at VS!!  I am 30 years old, and I just (finally) went in to get sized about 2 weeks ago (and only because my Darling Husband got me a giftcard for Christmas).  I had the same problem….and it made me really self-conscious when trying to wear most of my shirts (everytime I’d bend or move, I’d get what I affectionately refer to as “quads”, where my boobs would spill out over the tops of the cups leaving weird double-cleavage…yuck!).  I’d been wearing a 34 or 36 C, turns out I was needing a 32Dirty Delete (yikes, talk about hard to find except specialty stores….:(  ).  I just kept buying bigger sizes around my ribcage, but needed a bigger cup size instead.  It is so nice finally having under-roos that fit!!

Definitely sounds like your bra is the wrong size.  I’d go to Nordstroms and get measured.  They do a great job!
