Variations on half bras and other shape enhancing bras

3 Styles of Magnificent Half Bras

half bras 2 Comments »

I’ve written a few previous posts on different types of half bras and described them in depth but I wanted to write something on styles that match different personalities that we may be comfortable with.

All women have different personalities that vary from shy to outgoing, not just in social aspects but also in intimate settings. The same goes for the choices in lingerie. Neither personality trait is better or worse, they simply are who they are. In light of this I’ve chosen three distinct styles of half bras to suit most women.

Sexy See Thru Bra

The see thru bras are half bras suited to the more reserved woman. She still wants to be desired and attractive but perhaps doesn’t want to shout it out to the world. The style of see thru bra I’m talking about is the sheer bra or lace bra. It can be full covering, ornate, supportive, but most of all comfortable to wear underneath everyday clothes. I believe most women would have at least one of these in their lingerie collection.

Vintage Bullet Bra

The bullet bras are a very unique type of bra suited to women with a very distinct taste in lingerie, perhaps even living a rather different or alternative lifestyle compared to the norm. Whether it be artists, vintage fashion enthusiasts, the fit and shape of a bullet bra and lingerie from a time gone by is nostalgic, feminine, and high quality.

Raunchy Quarter Cup Bra

Our last style of half bras is for the more adventurous women. You don’t have to be working in the adult industry to be wearing quarter cup bras, cupless bras, shelf bras, and open cup bras but they will definitely attract someone’s attention. Whether it be for a romantic night at home or for dancing on the pole in a club there are quality luxury quarter cup bras or raunchy lingerie costume sets for everyone’s taste.

I’ve searched the web for places that offer these types of half bras and have found that HerRoom.comHerRoom.com Demi Bras stocks just about everything you could be looking for and WhatKatieDid.com specialises in vintage lingerie such as the bullet bra 3 Styles of Magnificent Half Bras.

Buying Half Cup Bras

half cup bras 1 Comment »

According to sales figures the most popular type of bras purchased today are half cup bras.

simone perele smpr01 115330 gs Buying Half Cup Bras Buying Half Cup BrasThere are many names for half cup bras but the most common alternative name is demi bras. The word ‘demi’ is of french origin and literally translates to ‘half’.

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.

Some of the most expensive and well known lingerie brands that create absolutely stunning half cup bras are Bordelle, Agent Provocateur, Carine Gilson, Jean Yu, and Guia La Bruna.

For us mere mortals that want something similar and more affordable half cup bras there are top brands like Simone Perele, La Perla, Affinitas Intimates, Chantelle and Victoria’s Secret and most of them can be found at HerRoom Lingerie Buying Half Cup Bras at fantastic prices and discounts.

If it makes you feel good to wear a quarter cup bra, wear it everyday, whatever makes you feel happy and good about yourself. It comes back to pleasing yourself first. When you are happy people will start asking what you did to make yourself look so vibrant and playful.
