Petite women—or women 5’3” or shorter—have different needs than average height women. Bras are made for average-height women and unless a petite woman can adjust the shoulder straps, she’ll be stuck with a bra whose shoulder straps constantly fall from her shoulders. Since most of a bra’s support comes from its shoulder straps, you can see how this would affect a petite woman’s fit. Petite women can look to the demi petite bra for a solution. If you’re petite and have trouble fitting into average-size bras, demi petite bras are the answer. A demi petite bra is designed with a portion of the upper half of the cups cut away to expose the upper part of the breasts. The shoulder straps are also wide-set (set further apart). Such bras are often worn when a top is cut low, wide or square—in other words, for sexy necklines. The word demi is French for half since demi cups are half cups compared to full coverage cups. A great demi petite bra is The Little Bra Company Isis Contoured Push-Up Bra E007, which is designed for petite, smaller-proportioned women and is uniquely cut to give women a comfortable fit with closer-set cups. HerRoom offers a wide selection of demi petite bras as well as free shipping, customer reviews, detailed product descriptions and several different photographs of each item.
