When to Wear a Plunge Bra

Because plunge bras are designed to dip low in the center gore, and often feature low-cut cups, they're great:

  • With low-cut tops or dresses
  • With v-cut shirts
  • With formalwear
  • With a wedding dress
  • With evening wear
  • For date night
  • When you want to look sexy

Plunge cups typically don't provide as much coverage as other bra types, so most women only wear them when they need them - they may not be best-suited for:

  • Everyday
  • Work
  • Working out
  • Running errands
  • Cleaning the house

Plunge bras are primarily reserved for special occasions, with other types of bra designs forming the core of the wardrobe.
