One of the most popular and versatile bra styles is the balcony bra, also known as a balconnet. On a balcony bra, the top of the cups make a straight line across your bust. This design shows off more cleavage than a full coverage bra, but still offers great support. The genius of a balconnet bras is that it lifts your breasts up like a shelf for fabulous décolletage! Another common feature of balconnet bras is wide set straps. This makes a balcony bra your best choice underneath boat neck, scoop neck and square neck tops.
Balcony bras are ideal for everyday wear and fit almost every body type. I particularly recommend this type of bra for women with larger, bottom-heavy breasts who want a young and modern look. A balcony bra is also a great style for petite women because the shorter underwires won't poke under the arms.
Most women will wear their regular size in a balcony style. But remember that there is a difference between cleavage and spillage! If there is a bump or bulge at the top of the bra cup, your cup size is too small. A demi cup
or half cup bra is very similar to a balcony bra, but has less coverage for a sexier look.
