Demi bras are popular bras that feature underwire and cups that are partially cut away to expose the top half of the breast. Demi is actually French for "half", which makes sense since demi bras usually reach about half way up from the nipples or bust point in coverage and are sometimes called half cup bras. This is normally one to one and a half inch above your nipples in practical terms.
Although demi cup cuts are used in a lot of push up bra styles, a demi bra is not a push up bra and while it does enhance the bust line, it gives a very natural, rounded look. Because of their versatility and more sensual, alluring style, demi cup bras are popular in both petite bra sizes to full busted bras and plus size styles.
Demi cup bras are typically thought of being worn to achieve a sexier, evening wear look, but don't be so fast to rule these bras out for more everyday occasions as well. The lower cut makes them perfect for low-cut, square necklines. With more coverage than a balcony bra and less than a full cup bra, Demi bras make you look great in a variety of outfits.
You'll find all kinds of designs and bra styles amongst demi cup bras because the demi bra is defined by the cut and coverage of the bra. Demi bras are by far one of the most popular styles with designers like Lunaire, Felina, Le Mystere, and Chantelle. Grenier, a Canadian bra designer, features a Lace Demi Bra that we're proud to carry among many other versatile styles. You can shop for all of these great demi bras and more.
