what is a plunge bra

Fancy treating yourself to some beautiful new bras and briefs? With oh-so-many different styles of lingerie out there, you may not where to start. The truth of the matter is that it can be a confusing world when you’re not used to all of the different names and types. Luckily, we’re here to help. Here’s what you should know about plunge bras.

What exactly is a plunge bra?

First, let’s take a look at the question you need answering. What exactly is a plunge bra? Well, the secret to this stylish piece of lingerie is hidden within its name. This type of bra is one that plunges downward or, in other words, has a low-cut finish.

But there’s a little more to this type of lingerie than meets the eye. Aside from merely offering a simple solution to many of your fashion-related woes, this type of bra also gives you a lift too. Combining a sheer level of support with a minor push-up effect, there’s just no way that you could go wrong with this one.

Why should you wear one?

Needless to say, there are quite a few reasons that women choose to wear plunge bras. One of the major ones is that some outfits just call for it. If you happen to have a dress or top that is quite low-cut at the front, wearing a plunge bra could be the answer.

It means that your bra will not be on show for the whole world to see, but also that you will get the support and comfort that you need from your lingerie. Oh, and as though that weren’t enough, it looks seriously sexy too!

What types of plunge bras are there?

While you may have heard the name in the past, it might not be 100% clear what a plunge bra actually is. Many women know the basics when it comes to different styles, but it can be a little confusing when you’re unsure of what to buy. When it comes to lingerie shopping, it really does pay to do your research and make sure that you know your stuff. So, with that in mind, what types of plunge bra are there and which should you try?

Deep plunge bra

Of course, we already know that the standard effect of a plunge bra is that it has a low-cut element to it, while still giving you a lift. Should you want to take that to the very next level, you may want to consider what’s known as a deep plunge bra. As the name suggests, the effect here is a little more dramatic than with other bras. The plunge is much lower, which means that the effect can look almost as though you’re wearing no bra at all. Stunning.

Padded plunge bra

Fancy giving yourself a little extra umph? A padded plunge bra may just be the way to go here. These bras are far more versatile than others like them and look gorgeous with almost any outfit you might imagine. The Matilda Contour Plunge is the epitome of everything this style of bra ought to be. Offering just the right amount of padding combined with a plunging finish, there’s so much to love here.

Backless plunge bra

We all have that one killer dress that calls for a backless bra. While many women dread having to wear this type of lingerie, you needn’t do so. In fact, when you get the right, well-fitted backless plunge bra for you, it can actually be very comfortable and supportive. Wearing one of these beauties with a stunning backless dress is a great way to show the world just how strong and powerful you really are. Don’t forget – you deserve to feel great.

Molded plunge bra

The smooth, sleek finish of a molded bra is not to be missed. This type of lingerie sits seamlessly under pretty much any dress of clothing item. Take the Jeanie Plunge Molded Bra, for example. The bra offers a seriously deep plunging effect, while still giving the support and comfort that every lady needs. When you choose a bra like this one, you can be certain that it will give you a glamorous, beautiful look.

How to choose the right one for you

Choosing the right plunge bra for you can often be easier said than done. You should be aware that this will take a little research on your part. If you’re hoping to pair the bra with a specific outfit, it may pay to take that piece of clothing with you when you head to the lingerie store. That way, you will be able to find a wealth of options that may work for you.

Alternately, it’s worth talking to the fitter in store and explaining just what you want to them. As they are experts in the field, they should have no problem helping you find just what you need at a moment’s notice.

Now that you know all there is to know about plunge bras, what are you waiting for? Why not browse some for yourself and figure out which works for you? You won’t regret it!
