While t-shirt bras are often the first choice for many women, plunge cup bras are just as attractive (if not more!) And look wonderful on a broader variety of body types and breast shapes. A plunge cup bra may actually fit better than a full coverage or demi-cup bra for certain ladies.
A plunge-type bra provides a natural lift that is significantly more discreet than a push-up bra due to its distinctive cup form. Push-up bras usually feature padding at the bottom of the cup to draw your breasts inwards and upwards for a visible lift, giving the illusion of a full cup size or more. A plunge bra, on the other hand, brings your breasts together from the centre of the cup.
What exactly is a plunge bra?
A plunge bra has a deep v-neckline and a beautiful shape that fits your curves perfectly. This bra type is ideal for wearing with low-cut skirts and tops that would not look well with other bra styles.
The lesser cup depth of our 24/7tm classic uplift plunge bra naturally enhances your form, while the fabric overlay offers a faultless fit with no cup overflow or gaping.
Here are three reasons why you should if you haven’t already:
- The shorter cables reduce poking
If your main bra problem is that wires pinch you in the chest or sit on your breasts, a plunge style is for you. A plunge cup’s wire is shorter than a wire that runs from your side to the middle of your chest, resulting in less poking and prodding. Women who have found other underwire bras unpleasant owing to the constant sensation of wires can find much-needed relief in a plunge version.
- Angled cups provide more coverage
A frequent myth about plunge cups is that women with higher cup sizes cannot wear them because they would spill out. That’s why – the cut appears to provide less covering at first glance, and the phrase “uplift plunge” may put some people off. If you’re one of these ladies, pay attention.
A deep plunge bra angled cups and deeper-v actually provide greater cup coverage at the top, particularly with the mesh overlay. In fact, if you have bigger breasts and are concerned about cup overflow, this bra has the “safety-mesh” you want. Consider it a chance to reveal some flesh without compromising comfort or covering. It’s a win-win situation!
- Your cups will not gape in a plunger
If you’ve ever worn your favourite bra with a tight t-shirt or tank top only to discover that you can see the edges of your cup, a plunge style can solve your bra issues. A plunge style bra’s thin mesh overlay, low-cut cups, and supportive straps offer you a super-flattering shape – without all of the bra lines. Furthermore, since most women’s breasts are less full at the top, plunge cups only contain fabric where it matters.
- Plunge bras enhance cleavage
Plunge bras are constructed in such a way that they gently force the breast tissue inward and upward. Some plunge bras incorporate creative padding or contouring in the cups for a more dramatic impression. The cleavage created with a plunge bra, on the other hand, maybe a bit more modest than with a push-up bra.
