A demi looks a little like a balconette bra and has a push-up in some of them.
This style of bra will give a more natural push-up, just by showing more of your breasts. Most demi-cup bras have unlined or foam-lined cups. Many women wear a demi bra as their basic daily bra.

Deep plunge bras are a must under a deep-v dress or very low-cut shirts and tops.

If you are looking for a nice silhouette that enhances the dress or top you’re wearing, you should definitely go for a push-up bra.

11. Soft cup bra plus size
The support from a wire-free bra comes from the band and the cups. And yes, this type of bra will work for women with a bigger bust.
