What is a demi bra?

A demi bra has low cups and covers a smaller part of your chest. Small padded cushions half way along the lower part of the cups lift your breasts and create a very sexy cleavage. The cups just cover your nipples or not.

Demi bras leave the top part of your breasts exposed for a revealing look. Demi bras with a low cut are also known as shelf bra or half bra . A demi bra is different from a balcony bra, because the demi cups have a bottom-heart shape and balcony cups tend to be straight.

What is the difference between a demi bra and a full coverage bra?

A full coverage bra covers the breasts completely and a demi bra covers half of the breasts. Demi bras leave the top part of your breasts exposed, and come just above or just below the nipples. A full coverage bra gives you a modest look and a demi bra gives you a revealing look, pick which you prefer!

Who should wear a demi bra?

Every woman can wear a demi bra, since the half cup shape works for most breast shapes. Especially if your breasts are fuller at the bottom than at the top, the demi bra will fit perfectly. Compared to a full cup bra, the demi bra offers a little less support.

What is a demi bra good for?

A demi bra is perfect to wear under low cut clothes, because of the low neckline. Your demi bra will not be visible under your top or dress. Additionally, the demi bra gives you a sexy look. The demi cups expose a large part of your chest, making the demi bra a very revealing shape.
