When to Wear a Demi Bra

Demi bras come in a wide variety of styles, which makes them great for a wide variety of occasions, including: Date night, Eveningwear, Bridal, or Weekends

The decision to wear a demi bra is often dictated by your outfit; you might choose to wear a demi bra:

  • With a lower cut shirt
  • With a wide cut or square neckline
  • When you want a little more cleavage
  • If you want to show the top swell of your breasts
  • For a night in with your special someone
  • With a sexy v-neck or plunging t-shirt

Demi bras are rarely wrong for any occasion, although you might find that they're not as well suited for:

  • Professional attire (some women find them too sexy for work outfits)
  • Everyday or running errands (some women prefer more coverage when it's not a special occasion)

Most of our demi bras tend to be lacy and very sexy, so demi bras often double as lingerie if you want something you can wear both under your clothes and during intimate encounters.
