When I first heard of the balconette bra, I was puzzled. So, I did a little digging around.
Turns out, a balconette bra is not complicated at all; in fact, it’s quite sexy! Here’s everything you wanted to know about balconette bras!
The balconette, or ‘balcony’ bra, is one of the sexiest bra styles you can opt for. As the name implies, it is designed with a ‘balcony-like’ neckline to cup your breasts from below and push them up for a firm and rounded appearance at the top.
And even with balconette bras, you can then opt for moulded cups, underwiring and even multi-way/detachable straps.
When it comes to its construction, the height of the cups in balconette bras is shorter than other styles, and the straps are generally set wider and closer to your armpits for an open and low-cut neckline. As a result, it visually lengthens your waist, and slims your upper body silhouette while beautifully enhancing your curves.
Balconette bras are a boon for petite women, since they plump and push up smaller breasts with their enhanced lift!
What to keep in mind when buying a balconette bra?
– The straps could be problem area for women with sloping shoulders. Since they are widely set on a balconette bra, slippage is a commonly reported issue. Some experimenting with different styles could help you find one that works for you.
– If you have full breasts, then spillage over the tops of the cups indicate that you need to tweak with the sizing of your balconette bra a bit. Alternatively, you could probably opt for a full-coverage push-up bra instead – especially for all-day usage.
What can you wear a balconette bra with?
The balconette is designed to make the most of your décolletage, i.e. the shoulders and tops of your breasts shown by a low-cut top. So, when you want to make the most of your cleavage, this ought to be the bra you choose.
Any low-cut neckline will look great with a balconette bra under it, whether it’s a blouse, shirt, t-shirt or dress.
Balconettes with multi-way, interchangeable straps also work well under backless blouses.
