What is a Demi Bra?

Looking for a sexy bra that will look great under your clothes - or in the bedroom? Want a low-cut bra with wide straps to wear under a sexy shirt or your favorite little black dress? Demi cup bras offer less coverage and beautiful lace designs that make them favorites for date nights or sexy outfits.

Demi bras are sexy bras whose cups are partially cut away, making them great for low necklines or when you want to show a bit of cleavage. The word demi means 'half' in French, which is an apt descriptor as these bras are sometimes called 'half cup bras.' A demi bra is defined by cut and coverage, so you'll find them in a variety of styles, including: Longline Bras, Push-Up Bras, Molded Cup Bras, Strapless Bras, Plunge Bras, or T-Shirt Bras.

Because they offer less bra cup, most of the support in a demi bra comes from the band, making it critical to select the right size in your demi cup bra. They also tend to have wider straps to create the open neckline, which means they may not be right for all body types.
