PLUNGE BRAS 101

FIT EXPERTS

The story behind the invention of t-shirt bras was not a fanciful one, nor was it ground- breaking at the time. But, it’s fair to say that this thoughtful and robust design has changed the lives of many forever. The t-shirt bra was designed in the early millennium and soon became a staple for women all over the world. The trusted t-shirt bra is the perfect everyday bra and a style that you can mindlessly choose in the morning as it’s versatile under many outfits. This guide details everything you need to know about t-shirt bras; read on for more.

What is a plunge bra?

The plunge bra as we know it was popularised in the 1990s and has since won the hearts of women worldwide. This style supports the bust by lifting breasts together. A regular plunge bra accentuates your breasts with its angled cups and doesn’t usually have a lot of padding. These cups can help with minimising the gaping that occurs with some bra styles. It’s the perfect bra to pair with your favourite low-cut dress. 

Who should wear a Plunge Bra?

This sleek design is perfect for a multitude of occasions. The plunge bra is ideal for wearing under low-cut tops as it subtly accentuates your cleavage without any extra padding. It is the perfect solution for wearing under your favourite dresses with plunging necklines. 

For those looking for more casual looking plunge bras to wear under everyday t-shirts, styles made from smoother fabrications are an ideal choice for you.

Are push-up and plunge bras the same thing?

If you’re wondering if a plunge bra is the same as a push-up bra, you’re not alone. Essentially, a push-up bra has more padding compared to a plunge bra. The main difference is that a plunge bra is designed to bring your breasts together from the centre of the cup. The push-up bra usually has padding at the bottom of the cup to lift your breasts upwards. A plunge bra also features angled cups and a deep v neckline, while push-up bras have more of a rounded cup. 

It’s also common to see push-up plunge bras, a hybrid of the two styles. This style will provide you with an additional lift, enhancing your breasts further. If you’re looking for something a little more dramatic, consider a push-up plunge bra like our Pleasure State My Fit Lace Range, which has sold over 600,000 pieces worldwide! This style is designed to maximise your cleavage. You’ll really steal the show by wearing this under a low-cut dress. 

Choosing the right plunge bra for you

When it comes to finding the right plunge bra for you, there are some things you should consider:

Understand your breast shape

Firstly, you’ll want to ensure that the cups contain your breast tissue. Women with breasts that are fuller at the bottom (bell-shaped breasts) might struggle with this particular style because of spillage. If this sounds like you, consider looking for a plunge bra that has a larger gore (the center-front piece of fabric that holds the cups together), this should securely keep your breasts in place.

Know what you want to wear it with

When you’re shopping around for the perfect plunge bra, think about what you’ll be wearing it with. For instance, if you’re looking for something you can wear every day, consider looking for a style with smooth moulded cups. Alternatively, if invisibility isn’t a concern, go for a printed or lace option. 

Recognise what makes you feel comfortable

Similarly to shopping for a new outfit, you’ll be able to tell when you find a style that supports you and, in turn, makes you feel comfortable and confident. That’s always going to be the winner!
