The purpose of a minimizer plus size bra is to reduce the appearance of the bust size. No bra can actually reduce the size of the breasts, but a minimizer bra can minimize full busts as much as possible—some bras minimize up to 1 3/4" from your chest. This gives your figure a more balanced look and makes it less top heavy looking. Minimizing the bust is usually accomplished by compression—the bra presses the breasts against the chest, producing a flattening effect. Many minimizer plus size bras utilize compression to flatten the chest. Some minimizer plus size bras feature pretty lace or embroidery to add color and charm to an otherwise serviceable bra. Every plus size woman should have minimizer plus size bras in her lingerie wardrobe. Plus-size women can look to minimizer plus size bras to reduce the look of their busts and provide them with the support they need. HerRoom offers a wide selection of minimizer plus size bras as well as free shipping, customer reviews, detailed product descriptions and several different photographs of each item.
