Half Bra - Whether you are getting ready for a formal black tie event or dashing off for an impromptu weekend getaway, a half cup bra is one of those beautiful bra styles that whispers femininity and self-confidence.
Often referred to as demi bra (demi is a French word that means half), it is more revealing than traditional full cup "everyday" bras. A low cut style designed to show off the top half of the breasts, it offers a sexy, whimsical vibe.
Want to know more? Here, we take a closer look at the fundamentals for getting it right and falling in love with this bra style's mesmerizing appeal.
Many may be tempted to boost their cleavage by squeezing into a demi or half bra that’s a size too small, but it never works and unfortunately ends up defeating the purpose.
In fact, a bra that’s too small will pinch, dig in, and create unsightly lumps and bumps, not to mention feel completely uncomfortable.
On the flip side, a half bra that’s too loose won’t give you the support and cleavage that this stunning style is famous for. Your best bet is to nail the perfect fit that creates killer curves, moves with you, and is effortless to wear.
The half cup bra’s stunning cleavage is created by boosting your bust from below. The half cups act as a shelf to support the bottom of your breasts and serves them up, front and centre.
If you want to dial up the intensity, look for pretty bras with strategically placed padding at the sides of the cups and at the bottom. This will lift and push your bust together and upward, providing even more of a bombshell shape.
Q. How much coverage do these types of bras provide?
A. Half cup bras offer less coverage than traditional full cup bras, and less than their sexier cousins - balconette bras.
A brassiere that’s full of va-va-voom in the fitting room doesn’t necessarily translate to a bra that works under your clothing.
Over the top cleavage can look lumpy under clothing, so always make sure to slip a top over your bra in the fitting room, and to check yourself out from all angles.
Make sure the positioning of the bra cups doesn’t dig into your breasts and cut them off.
And, of course check out your rear view to make sure that the bra band lays smoothly against your skin and isn’t riding up or pinching.
It goes without saying that the half cup bra will be a favorite of your partners, but it’s not just to be worn for wooing your lover or significant other.
The secret of the half cup bra is that the woman who wears it will love it just as much.
The way the cut of this beautiful bra enhances your figure will make any woman feel special and sensual. And, while it’s great to dress up to impress your honey, it’s equally important to wear lingerie that you love yourself.
