The first thing you’ll notice when you try on a balconette bra is the fact that the height of the cups is shorter. The cups, therefore, offer less coverage than a full cup bra.

  • the straps are wider set than with normal bras
  • shoulders en chest show more, without seeing the bra
  • has more feminine detail like pleats, ruffles, bows, lace
