If you haven’t got one in your lingerie drawer yet, then what are you waiting for? One of the most versatile items in underwear fashion, the half cup bra, also known as a demi cup bra is having a moment with shops going all out with pretty styles and colours.
We love the sexiness and as the name suggests, the subtle reveal of half your bust. What appeals to us, apart from the attractive styles, is the support and lift provided in the half cup bra for the bottom half of your bust. Many brands add an underwire to the bra design to support and cater to women of all proportions.
This fascinating new trend brings options to your lingerie wardrobe. By playing to the support you need from a bra in the straps and the allure of the reveal, there is not much more we could ask for from a bra design but to enjoy the experience of picking out our favourite colour and style.
For those prepared to push those boundaries a step further, how about trying the quarter cup bra? Adding a hint of drama, these bras end just below the equator of the bust!
As strikingly revealing as these bras sound, they will still work with a good proportion of your wardrobe, going particularly well with all your low-cut tops and dresses.
