When to Wear a Full Cup Bra

Because full cup bras describe a coverage and structure, and not necessarily a 'bra type,' you'll find full cup bras in a wide variety of styles.

You can find full cup bras to wear:

  • With t-shirts
  • With your professional work wardrobe
  • With eveningwear
  • In the bedroom
  • For date night
  • For everyday
  • While running errands
  • While around the house
  • While pregnant or nursing

Shopping for a full cup bra is more about matching the right style of full cup bra with your wardrobe and your fashion sense.

Full cup bras aren't great for: Low cut shirts.

Since they offer more coverage, they may be visible under low-cut shirts. However, we do have some full cup bra styles that feature lacy cup tops, so you can wear them for date night if you want to flash a bit of lace under your shirt, or with a cami if you have a favorite low cut shirt that would show your full cup bra.
