Balcony Bras for Natural, Rounded Shaping and Beautiful Cleavage

What is a Balcony Bra?

Are you looking for a bra to create cleavage? Want a bra that provides some lift and is great with a low-cut shirt?

If you're looking for a bra with natural, rounded shaping to give you beautiful cleavage, wide straps that look great with a low-cut neckline, or a bra that is well-suited for going out on a hot date or a night out with the girls, a balcony bra may be right for you.

A balcony bra, or balconette bra, is typically a half or three-quarter coverage bra that covers the nipples and lifts the top half of your breasts.

It creates nice, rounded cleavage, but doesn't fully cover your breasts.

Also sometimes called "half cup bra," a balcony bra is designed to enhance the look of your breasts, often with a bit of push-up or padding in the design. This type of bra leaves the top swell of your breasts exposed for a sexy look, making this a great cleavage bra.

Who Should Wear a Balcony Bra?

Because balconette bras have wide-set straps and half-cup styles, they're best-suited for:

  • Women who have broader shoulders
  • Women who want a wide neckline
  • Low-cut, square neck or sweetheart neckline tops
  • Women who are looking for a sexier style
  • Women who have firm breasts
  • Women who are looking for a fabulous cleavage bra

The design of a balcony bra makes it great for women with a certain body type and breast shape, but women who have a different body shape or breast distribution may find that a balcony bra doesn't fit in the most flattering way.

If your body has any of these characteristics, a balcony bra might not be good for you:

Women with narrow or sloping shoulders
(the straps may be too wide set and may cut into the shoulders, and may cause discomfort around the armpit or the front of the arm where it joins the shoulder)

Women who have loose breast tissue
(a balcony bra may lack the shaping and support necessary and the breasts may look "squished" or flat on top)

Women with narrow shoulders or breasts that aren't as firm may find that other bras are a better fit, such as full cup bras, push-up bras, padded bras and molded cup bras.

When to Wear a Balcony Bra?

If you're not sure when it's ok to wear a balcony bra, here are some suggestions:

  • When you want to create great cleavage
  • When you want a bra with less coverage for a lower-cut shirt or dress
  • When you're looking for a great bra for date night
  • When you want a fun bra for a girls night out
  • When you're looking for a sexy bra for a night in with your special someone

Balcony bras are best suited for:

  • Wide-neck shirts and dresses
  • Low-cut tops and dresses
  • Some formal dresses and eveningwear

There's rarely a bad time to wear a balconette bra - it's more about whether it's the right fit for your body type and the clothes you're wearing.
