Bra styles typically fit in two different categories: Traditional bras for regular wear and sexy bras for special occasions. Traditional bras are bra styles every woman has at least a few of in her lingerie wardrobe. These typically include T-shirt bras, push up bras, full coverage bras, underwire bras and soft cup bras. Sexy bras are the more bold, adventurous, and revealing bra styles. These usually include open cup shelf bras, sheer bras, see through bras, and shelf bras – to name a few. One style we think every woman would enjoy having in her lingerie drawer is the shelf bra.
About the shelf bra
Shelf bra lingerie has a bra band that wraps around the underbust like a traditional bra and often have underwires to provide the breasts with lift and support. They’re available in a variety of levels of cup coverage depending on how much skin you want to show off and nipple you want to leave exposed. These revealing bras also often feature side paneling to push the breasts inward and toward the center to give you that sexy, feminine, upright and perky look.
Shelf bras are great for women with large and small cup sizes. If you have small breasts, you can find a shelf platform bra that will give you great lift and support, without having to worry about sagging as much as a large breasted woman would. You can also wear them in high impact situations and for long periods of time because you don’t need as much all-around support.
There are also many open cup shelf bra styles that work for women with larger breasts – you just have to know what to look for! Larger-breasted women should look for a shelf bra with more well-constructed cups and a more supportive band. Underwires can be your best friend! Some shelf bras are designed with structured cups inside, which can give you the boost you need to feel confident throughout the day.
