A plunge bra is a frontless bra which is perfect for wearing underneath low-cut tops and dresses as it creates a flattering cleavage but is kept hidden. They feature a deep v-neckline which enhances your breasts while still giving the full support and lift you need. Unlike a balcony bra or full cup bra, the plunge bra has less coverage due to its neckline, which pushes the breasts together. The cups are also angled, rather than straight across like a balcony, and support from the centre, with straps that sit wider on the shoulder. You will find that plunge bras are usually underwired due to the nature of the bra, and most likely padded too. However, plunge bras do come in both styles, padded and non-padded, it all depends on your preference! A padded plunge bra doesn’t mean added bulk either, the padding just provides a smoother, rounded shape which looks great underneath any outfit. Like all bras, if the bra fits you shouldn’t ‘spill out’ of the cups and it should feel comfortable to wear.
So, what are the key benefits or features of a plunge bra?
- Enhances cleavage
