Demi Bra - Popular Myths That Will Surprise You

Demi Bra - Beautifully stylish with a flattering shape that’s ultra chic without really trying, these bras are ideal for everything from black tie formal to weekend casual.

Known as one of the five classic underwire bra styles, demi cup bras are also called half cup or half bras - demi is a French term that means half.

Offering wide set straps and less coverage than a traditional full cup bra and more than their sexy sibling, the balconette, these popular bras are designed to show off the top part of the breasts - which makes them a perfect choice for your low-cut wardrobe favorites.

Wonderfully feminine and supportive, they can be worn from A to DD+, and are a great choice for pushing a bustline up without creating a lot of obvious cleavage. 

Below, a closer look at one of the most beautiful pin-ups of the lingerie world.

You Need To Have The Perfect Body For A Demi Bra

A big NO to this myth! First of all, no woman has the perfect body, well not unless you're Elle Macpherson, and second of all, this myth simply isn’t true.

Small busts will love the boost they get from demi bras, especially with strategically placed padding at the bottom of the bust to create even more cleavage.

Full figured sizes? No worries, they're perfectly supported by the underwire frame and structure from below the bust, and their curves are accentuated front and centre.

And, lingerie lovers with average bra sizes? They love how a half bra fits and flatters, creating just enough cleavage to show off a gorgeous shape.

The conclusion? No one needs to have a model’s figure, fit into a specific size, or have a specific body type to rock a demi cup bra - everyone can look great.

 These Types of Bras Are Only For X Rated Looks

Demi bras are not X rated. They are actually more like a work of art with beautiful shaping and luxurious details.

Famous for boosting the bust and giving your cleavage a starring role, they're one of the most popular bra styles with lingerie enthusiasts, and a must-have for an exciting luxe look.

A demi cup bra offers more style versatility than just sultry situations, and can actually be worn as an everyday bra. Our recommendations - consider - 

  • a beautiful pastel shade in all over lace for a ladylike look
  • a clean and simple jewel toned satin for classic feminine types
  • ultra soft cotton for sporty women who want a look that’s fresh
  • printed half cup bras for those who favor a fun and flirty look

Demi (half) bras can work with virtually every personal style, and easily be part of a versatile lingerie wardrobe that works for everything from your everyday favorites to the perfect little black dress.

Want to bump up the wow factor and increase the sweet sex appeal of a demi bra?

Look for mesh or sheer lace cups with more detailing, and pair your bra with sexy panties and garters instead of everyday underwear.

The best part? A demi style bra can go whichever way you would like, depending on the style you choose and how you mix and match it with lingerie that you already have.

Beautiful Lingerie Tip

Since these pretty bras are cut lower than your typical full bra, they're virtually invisible under clothing, especially when you opt for a seamless cup.

Demi cup bras often have supportive boning on the sides, underwires for lift, and light padding much like push up bras. And, they often come with wider set bra straps for a more comfortable fit.

 Demi Bras Aren't Great Under Clothing

If you think that beautiful bras are only for the boudoir, you’re mistaken.

This common myth has everyone thinking that there is a need to separate demi bras for romantic encounters, and traditional full cup bras for every day wear.

Demi bras are perfect under any clothing, especially with silky smooth microfiber bra cups that become invisible under any fabric.

The right fit means you’ll have a sleek figure with just the right amount of cleavage to be tasteful for everyday situations.

For more flexibility with your wardrobe, opt for a style with convertible straps and pick neutral colors that will go easily with your clothing.

Forget the myth that these beautiful bras can’t be worn daily, and make them a part of your favorite lingerie lineup.
