What is a balconette bra?

The balcony effect is the first thing you’ll notice. You’ll find the cups to be shorter in height and are shaped more horizontally than other bras.

More features of a balconette:

  • the straps are wider set than with normal bras
  • shoulders en chest are shown more
  • feminine details like pleats, ruffles, bows, lace
