minimiser bras

Minimiser bras are designed especially for women with fuller and larger cup sizes, as they provide the illusion of a smaller bust. They’re designed to create a smooth silhouette and visibly reduce the appearance of a heavy bust, making them perfect for a more discreet look.

What is a Minimiser Bra?

A minimiser bra is designed to reduce the appearance of a large bust and reduce breast bounce. They’re made with structured full coverage cups, wider straps and added support, making them a great option for fuller breasts. 

How Does a Minimiser Bra Work?

Minimiser bras work by providing compression, keeping the breast tissue contained and more compact with shallow cups and firmer fabric, and therefore squashing the breasts closer to the chest. Many minimiser bras also force tissue redistribution, guiding the breast tissue towards the armpits.

Do Minimiser Bras Really Work?

Minimiser bras aren’t capable of giving you an actual boob reduction, but they should visibly reduce the appearance of your overbust by an inch or so. They’re also more effective on bigger, softer breasts, as these are easier to mould.

What is the Difference Between Minimiser and Full Coverage Bra?

Whilst all minimiser bras are full coverage, a full cup bra doesn’t necessarily mean it will also act as a minimiser. The two both provide comfort and support to fuller sizes, but a minimiser will include specific features to level out cleavage and reduce movement. 

What Size Minimiser Bra Should I Buy?

When buying a minimiser bra, you should opt for your regular bra size. It’s also important to note that the fit of a minimiser bra might feel more snug than what you usually wear. 

If you don’t know what your size is, head to our bra fitting guides, which will provide you with everything you need to know about your size and the fit of your bra. 

Are Minimiser Bras Bad For You?

No, minimiser bras aren’t bad for you. They’re designed to provide support, comfort and help with movement and cleavage reduction, so they’re certainly not meant to cause any harm. The biggest risk (and this applies to any bra), comes from wearing the wrong size. So, provided that you’re wearing the right size minimiser bra, it’s not going to cause any damage.

Why Do People Want Minimiser Bras?

Minimiser bras are made to reduce your bust by up to an inch, which in turn will make your whole silhouette appear slimmer, making tight clothing more flattering. They help to smooth the figure and create a more flattering shape, meaning that they’re a great option for many different types of clothing.

Which is the Best Minimiser Bra?

For all things minimiser bras, we recommend Triumph or Naturana. They provide a range of excellent minimiser bras, both wired and non wired. They’re all designed to fully support your breasts, whilst providing long-lasting comfort and a minimising effect, making them fantastic choices for getting a reduced cleavage.
