According to sales figures the most popular type of bras purchased today are half cup bras.
It is almost self explanatory why it is called a half cup bra or demi bra because they only cover the bottom half of the breast, leaving the top half of the breast exposed. The half cup bras still cover the nipples though and are not to be confused with quarter cup bras and cupless bras.
Half cup bras are meant to show the top half of the breast so that you can wear low cut tops or plunging necklines. They often lift or push the breast together to give a more appealing and filled out cleavage of the bust.
Unlike push up bras the half cup bras do not usually have fillets or padding. Push up bras tend to also be more plain looking than demi bras. Half cup bras have lace trimmings and ornate details so that they can be worn by themselves in the bedroom, around the house, without any clothing on top.
Half cup bras can of course be worn under any normal top and often are. The feeling of wearing underwear that is a bit more luxurious than a normal bra works wonders for your self image and mood.
The important thing to note when buying half cup bras is the sizing of course.
Many women tend to buy half cup bras a size too small, so the breast are almost spilling over. The correct way to fit half cup bras is of course to make sure that it doesn’t spill over or end up with a cup half filled so to speak. Any bra that is fitted correctly should complement the contour of your body so that the cup appears to be painted on to your body rather than simply being an attachment.
