Plunge bras are one of the most popular styles amongst women, especially for those with a smaller frame. The cups are angled with a V-shape neckline, pushing the boobs to the centre of the chest and creating a stunning cleavage. At BraForMe, our collection of plunge bras features the best from all your favourite brands, including Fantasie, Freya and PrimaDonna.
Plunge bras are fantastic options for all shapes and sizes, guaranteeing cleavage and lift under all clothing types.
What is a Plunge Bra?
A plunge bra is designed with angled cups to lift the breasts and create forward projection. They’re great for wearing underneath low-cut clothing, due to their V-shaped neckline, which pushes the boobs to the centre of the chest.
Plunge bras support from the centre, with straps that sit wider apart on the shoulders. They provide less coverage than a normal bra but don't sacrifice any support, so they’re perfect for boosting cleavage, no matter the size of your boobs.
Features of a Plunge Bra:
- V-shape neckline to enhance cleavage
- Invisible under low-cut clothing
- Supports, lifts and provides forward projection
- Typically underwired
- Available with or without padding
Plunge bras come in all sorts of different variations, often going hand-in-hand with another feature. There’s both padded and non-padded options, alongside side support, moulded, t-shirt, you name it. Whatever you pick all depends on preference and what benefits you’re looking for from your bra, so whilst you might just want a regular plunge bra, you could also choose a longline plunge bra or a plunge t-shirt bra.
What Does a Plunge Bra Do?
Plunge bras create added cleavage and lift, without the need for push-up padding. Some plunge bras do come with padding, which will provide even more of a boosted cleavage.
Padded plunge bras will provide a smoother, more rounded shape underneath clothing, without adding any bulk. Lace plunge bras or ones without padding tend to be more visible under clothing, due to patterned embroidery or detailing. Non-padded plunge bras are recommended for those with fuller bust sizes, as they provide lift without creating the illusion of a larger bust.
How Should a Plunge Bra Fit?
Plunge bras, like any other bra, should encase the boobs in the cups without overspill and should feel comfortable. We’ve got a full guide to How Should a Bra Fit, which will take you through everything you need to know about the fit of your bra. So, if you’re unsure of how a plunge bra should fit, check that out.
