When to Wear a Cleavage Bra

Cleavage bras are great for:

  • When you're wearing a low-cut top and want a bra that won't be visible
  • When you want to create killer cleavage
  • When you want a great date night bra
  • When you need a bra to look fabulous with your little black dress

The types of clothes that work best with cleavage bras are:

  • Low-cut tops
  • Low-cut or plunge dresses
  • Some scoop or square neck shirts, if you want to show the swell of your breasts

When NOT to wear a cleavage bra:

  • If you're going to be active, a cleavage bra may not provide the support and bounce-reduction you need
  • The shaping of a cleavage bra may be too sexual to wear with your work wardrobe; you may want a full cup bra, t-shirt bra or other everyday bra for work

Bottom line: the right type of cleavage bra for you depends on what you're wearing, and where you're wearing it!
