Want to find a perfectly fitted bra that complements your desired outfit? Then you must first understand the key elements like the cup size, coverage, level of padding, the neckline, the width of the straps, and so on. Today, we’ll look at the difference between two of the most popular bra styles among women – demi-cup bra and plunge bra.
Both are available in a variety of fabrics and styles and both make your breasts appear flawless. However, both are two completely different styles that should not be confused.
What is a Demi Cup Bra?
A Demi Bra, also known as a Half Bra, Shelf Bra, Balcony Bra, or Balconette Bra, is made up of cups that cover approximately half or three-quarters of your bust. Because these cups do not provide full coverage, your breasts can be pushed upward and making them appear naturally fuller and rounder. Another intriguing feature of a Demi Bra is the availability of padded and non-padded cups.
What is a Plunge Bra?
A plunge bra is an underwire bra with angled cups that are centred towards the deep V gore and are usually padded. The plunge bra’s angled push up style leaves the centre of the chest open to avoid showing through clothes with plunging necklines. It pushes the breasts together, creating the illusion of larger breasts and drawing a deep line of cleavage in the centre for a sultry, sexy yet natural look that’s great for many occasions.
