The Different Bra Styles

Air filled/gel filled Designed to increase cleavage and give lift. Avoids the bumps and seams in the cups that other types of padding can occasionally create.
Backless Designed to be worn with eveningwear. This type of bra usually has clear, see-through straps or has a very low back. Some bras feature backs of diamante chains.
Balconette A more revealing version of a demi bra. Creates dramatic uplift and cleavage, suited to smaller and medium bust sizes. Usually underwired.
Balcony A full cup bra offering support for mid to larger cup sizes. Usually underwired.
Bandeau/Strapless A strapless bra has no shoulder straps and is especially designed to wear with evening gowns and other sleeveless tops/dresses.
Basque Erotic lingerie. Similar to a bustier, the basque reaches down to the hips and may come with underwired cups or corset-like boning. May also feature detachable suspender straps.
Bustier A garment which extends from bust to hip. Most bustiers have flexible boning throughout the body of the garment for additional shaping, and close in the back with a long row of hooks and eyes. Additional features may include removable or convertible straps or garters. Smooth bustiers are perfect under special occasion wear as they provide both shaping and uplift.
Clear straps A bra that uses clear, see-through straps. Perfect for evening wear, or wearing with vest tops that have thin shoulder straps.
Contour bra A contour bra has shaped cups and mimics the shape of a woman’s body. It is designed not to show, providing a natural look. The cups are padded or lined and they have an underwire. Contour bras are similar to a moulded bra, except moulded bras are generally not as highly structured. Contour bras are a perfect choice for any woman seeking a sculpted silhouette, as they offer a significant amount of coverage and control.
Convertible A convertible bra gives a woman flexibility with different types of garments. The straps can be worn or detached, or can be criss-crossed in the back like a halter-top.
Demi bra A demi bra is a low-cut bra that’s designed to enhance the cleavage of smaller busts. Perfect for wearing under low cut dresses or tops.
Drop Cup Designed for breast-feeding mums. The cups can easily be ‘dropped down’ from the rest of the bra to feed the baby.
First Bra Small back and cup sizes to suit girls looking for their first bra.
Front Fastening The clasp of the bra is located at the front of the bust for ease.
Frontless Either clear, or diamante straps are used across the front of the bust, to join the two cups together. Ideal for low cut tops and evening wear.
Fuller Figure/full Support A full-figured bra is designed for sizes 32C and upwards, and covers a larger area than average bras. The fabric used is heavier; the straps are wider and sometimes padded for extra comfort.
Full Cup A full cup bra completely covers most of the breast, offering both more coverage and more support than a demi cup bra.
Gel Filled/Air Filled Designed to increase cleavage and give lift. Avoids the bumps and seams in the cups that other types of padding can occasionally create.
Half cup Half of the breasts and the nipples are covered.
Halter neck Instead of the straps going over each shoulder separately, the straps meet up behind the next. Designed to be worn with halter neck tops or dresses.
Longline In a similar way to a bustier, the bra extends down towards the tummy. Often used for bridal and eveningwear as it offers support, lift, and shapes the tummy.
Mastectomy Bras designed for women who have had a mastectomy on either breast or both. The bras are designed with pockets in the cup area to hold a breast prosthesis.
Maternity A maternity bra provides extra support, and is expandable, using stretch fabric, to grow with the expectant mother as her pregnancy matures.
Minimiser A minimizer bra reduces the appearance of the larger bust by up to one cup size. It can help to reduce gaping buttons and create a smoother silhouette.
Multi-way Bras that have versatile straps so that they can be worn in different ways. For example over the shoulder, as a halter neck, backless, and removable straps.
Nursing A nursing bra is an extra-support bra that comes with removable flaps on the cups, allowing a new mother to nurse her baby without removing the bra.
Padded Padded Bras have some type of padding lining the cups, and are ideal for smaller to mid sizes. Graduated padding is thicker at the base of the cups and creates a natural looking silhouette as well as the appearance of increased cleavage.
Plunge Plunge bras create the appearance of increased cleavage because of their deep (plunging) front and angled cups. Plunge bras differ from push-up bras in that they are not generally as heavily padded. They are ideal under V neck tops.
Push Up A push-up bra uses padding and wires to push the breasts up, thus enhancing the cleavage and giving a fuller look.
Racer Back Straps are joined together in the middle of the back, which prevents them from slipping down the shoulders. This style of back is most often found on sports bras.
Seamless A bra constructed without seamed cups. There may be seams in other parts of the bra, but a single piece of fabric is used for the cups, giving a smooth, natural look, ideal for wearing under close-fitting tops.
Shelf Bra A more revealing version of a demi bra. Offering little to no coverage, shelf bras create dramatic uplift and cleavage. They can also be found built in to vest tops to offer extra support.
Soft Cup/Non-Underwired A soft-cup bra uses elastic under the cups for support, as opposed to wire. They can be padded or unpadded.
Sports Bra A sports bra is specially designed to cut down and eliminate bounce for use in any activity that involves a lot of movement. The cotton-lined cups are high at the front and sides for support, and they have a comfort under band. Most have a racer back for further support.
Strapless/Bandeau A strapless bra has no shoulder straps and is especially designed to wear with evening gowns and other sleeveless tops/dresses.
String/Triangle A triangle bra has triangle shaped cups, which offer the perfect amount of coverage/support for petite to average figures. Triangle bras may be padded or lined but generally do not have underwires, and most have thin straps.
Triangle/String A triangle bra has triangle shaped cups, which offer the perfect amount of coverage/support for petite to average figures. Triangle bras may be padded or lined but generally do not have underwires, and most have thin straps.
T-shirt Bra Designed to appear invisible under even the thinnest fabrics, t-shirt bras are seamless, generally made of microfibre and a little padded.
Underwired A thin, flexible wire, which offers added support to the cups of bras.
Unpadded Unpadded bras are designed to fit the natural cup shape.
Zip Cup For nursing. Zips can be used to uncover the breast for ease of feeding.
