High Apex Bras

High apex bras are similar to bralettes, in that the way the strap links to the cups (the apex) is higher. The cup blends into the straps, creating a triangular shape. High apex bras are especially flattering under v-neck clothing, being the perfect shape to hide underneath, or subtly pop out of it. Our collection of high apex bras includes the best from our most popular brands, including FreyaGossard and Aubade.

What is a High Apex Bra?

High apex bras are simply bras designed with a higher apex (the part of the bra where the straps join to the cup), giving them a more triangular-shaped cup.

This design makes them very similar to some bralettes, with the differing features being that bralettes are more longline and usually wireless (you can also get high apex bralettes).

You might be thinking that this sounds like a triangle bra, and you’re right, the two are similar. However, high apex is referring to the actual area where the straps join to the cups (this being higher, which does make a triangle shape), but triangle bras are referring to the actual shape of the cups.

What are the Benefits of a High Apex Bra?

High apex bras have many fantastic benefits, being designed with a flattering shape and providing similar support and lift to a plunge bra. For larger sizes, the high apex can also act as minimiser, covering more of the breast tissue whilst still providing the support and comfort you need. The deeper neckline gives a plunging effect, creating a fabulous cleavage under low cut clothing.
