A Breakdown of Bras

Bras have been a staple in women’s wardrobes for centuries. Though that may be the case, we’ve seen that these garments have changed and evolved, providing women, regardless of their breast size, with the support that they need. When you’re shopping for your next bra, it’s important that you’ve found a bra that not only looks good but feels good too. We’re going to do a little break down on the different types of bras so that while you’re out shopping for new pieces (or digging some older ones out of your drawer), you know which bra is going to provide you with what you need.

Demi Bra

One of the more flirty styles of bras, the Demi bra only covers half of your bust. Demi bras have a lower cut across the entirety of the bra. This cut can mimic the look of a push-up bra, but in reality, it has much less padding than even the minimal push-up bra. Overall, this is a great way to achieve a flirty, natural look while still prioritizing your comfort.

The best part about these bras is that they are great for everyday wear, too. The chances of you having a Demi bra already are extremely high. These are a fantastic option when you’re looking for a natural way to enhance the girls.

Plunge Bra

The demi bra offers a low cut across the entire garment. Plunge bras, on the other hand, will have your standard cut cups and will havea low-cut plunge in the center. These bras are ideal for low-cut shirts and for adding a little flair to your lingerie look. The cut itself is extremely flattering to your bust, making it an ideal choice for any opportunity to be a little over the top.

These bras offer quite a bit of padding to provide you with a natural push-up look. Pairing that with the shape of the cups and the deep plunge cut, you’re sure to be a knockout.

Push-Up Bra

Flaunt what you’ve got, that’s a life motto we like to live by. Push-up bras are a great way to push your bust up while providing a fuller look. These bras will be heavily lined with padding on the underside of the bra so that they can lift your bust up. These are fantastic options for lingerie shoots, sexy nights out, and romantic nights in. Most push-up bras will account for two extra cup sizes so you may want to take that into consideration when you go looking for the best fit.

Longline Bra

A bra that is known for its sexy cut and extra boost is the longline bra. This is an older style that has recently become popular again. These bras will offer a little more coverage in terms of the cups, and a higher line across the entirety of the garment. As for the bra itself, there is little padding, but enough to keep it comfortable and looking good.

If you’re ever looking for a bra that offers excellent support, a longline bra is what you should consider. These are certainly one of the more supportive bras, but the stretchy materials and flexible wires allow for it to remain comfortable throughout the time you’re wearing it. At the end of the day, these bras offer lots of support, they feel great and are extremely fashion-forward. There’s no losing!


One of the more in-style bras of the moment is the bralette. These bras are often made from lace or mesh and are a much more comfortable bra than the others that we’ve mentioned. The reason behind that is that there’s absolutely no wire in them! That may be a win for the comfort, but it can affect the overall support that some busts needs. They’re always fun to incorporate into boudoir shoots, pajamas, everyday outfits, and more. More importantly, they are incredibly comfortable to wear, so if you don’t already have one — get one!
