Types of bras


Non-padded bras are bras whose cups are soft and easily adapt to the shape of the breast. They are usually made of one layer of lace, cotton or microfiber. The cups of a soft bra can be non-wired or wired.

1 Non-wired: A non-wired bra can have many cuts and shapes, but it is always a bra with no underwire inside. It is especially suitable for young girls, pregnant and lactating women, women after breast surgery and for home wear. It is very popular among the older generation of women who prefer comfort. You can use it as a sleep bra.

2 Underwired: Underwired cuts give the breasts a high degree of support while maintaining their natural shape. They are suitable, above all, for larger breasts, they fit perfectly and fit well.

Half padded

The lower part of the bra cups is stiffened and slightly profiled, while the upper part does not contain stiffening, it is soft and flexible. The top, unstiffened part of the cup is usually made of lace or tulle.

The semi-stiffened bra cut is suitable for all breast sizes - thanks to the bottom stiffening, the bra maintains a nice shape of the breasts, although in the upper part it does not add volume to the breasts. In short, the lower part provides support for the breast, while the soft upper part adapts to the roundness and shape of the bust.


Push-up bra lifts the bust and creates a full cleavage. It is a padded bra with underwires (it can also be without), which has inserts in the lower part, thanks to which the breasts are raised and the neckline seems fuller. These inserts may be removable or combined directly with the cup. The sizes of the inserts vary, so the bra can enlarge the bust by up to two sizes (double push-up). The types of insoles are also diverse - from foam, through silicone, to gel.

The push-up bra is suitable for both small and medium-sized breasts.


A balconette (sometimes also called a balcony) is a bra with a special cut of the cups - in the case of this bra, they are cut lower and their upper part is equal. The middle part between the breasts is high, the balconette usually also has side underwires, which ensures a stable support for the breast even after unfastening the straps. The balconies also have a silicone strip on the inside of the circumference to prevent the bra from slipping.

This cut of the bra supports the bust from the bottom towards the top (it often has inserts as well), it emphasizes the upper line of the bust, creating a beautiful, full neckline.

Advice: How to distinguish a balconette from a standard bra - in the case of a balconette, the top of the cups should almost smoothly follow the circumference of the bra.


This bra cut combines the advantages of a standard padded bra and balconies. The Half Bardot bra is basically a padded bra with an open cup shape. The cups are made of two or three parts, which are sewn with only vertical seams (unlike most stiffened bras with T-shaped seams). Thanks to this, the cups can be lowered and create the same effect as a classic balconette. However, they are also suitable for more frequent wear. They provide excellent stability also in the case of large breast sizes.

It visually differs from the bar by the transition between the cup and the circumference - the cups do not flow freely into the circumference, but their outer side rises towards the shoulder straps.


A plunge bra (sometimes called a deco plunge) is characterized by the fact that in the front between the cups it has a bridge as low as possible. Therefore, it is suitable for deep necklines.

a) Plunge for small breasts: it often has padded, but unlike push-ups that lift the bust, the plunge pads slightly press the breasts towards each other, creating a beautiful full cleavage deep down the neckline.

b) Plunge for large breasts: does not have a push-up effect, yet has a similar effect on the bust as a plunge with pads. Uses the size of your own bust - from the side, it gently squeezes the breasts, filling the entire front bust line.
