What is a shelf cup bra?

This bra is made to show off your breast and if you like your nipples too. A naughty bra style that you would want in your lingerie drawer for special moments.

A shelf bra is called an open cup bra as well. It is a very sexy bra that exposes the woman’s breasts completely. If you want a bit more support and lift you could go for the shelf bra with extra supportive half cups.

To add some extra playfulness to your shelf bra you wear it with some sexy nipple covers. The nipple covers might also be for the protection of nipples if you wear something over the bra. Covers are great when going out and you may not want to show your nipples just yet.

How does a shelf bra work for bigger boobs? 

Shelf bras are a little less functional than other styles of sexy bras. But they are meant to be like that and are designed to show off your breasts.

Depending on the support you might want or need you can choose from different styles and support. With shelf bras, you really should read reviews from other customers if you have any doubts about this style or sizing. It can be of great help.

If you have a D cup or DD cup this bra can be great on you. Yes, it can give you enough support, because of the wider set wires. Have a look at Herroom.com for open cup bras with support.
