Another piece of lingerie for the voluptuous beauty, the balconette bra, or sometimes known as the balcony bra or demi bra, is a piece of lingerie suitable for various types of apparels. Its low cut and square neckline feature allow the wearer to wear this bra with any low cut dress.
It gives the breasts the support and upward lift needed to unleash their captivating bust lines and to give the corseted impression as it adds to the volume.
Some balconettes have push-up pads as well for the extra lift. To add to the excitement of the ambience, a matching pair of balconette bra and panty can do the trick!
Unless you are not wearing bras anymore, your lingerie collection is the backbone of your wardrobe that gets worn the most but gets the least love.
Like your other outfit, there’s a bra for every occasion which means you need to categorize them well.
A balconette bra is easily one of the sexiest everyday styles you have sitting in your wardrobe. It cups your breasts gently from below giving them a natural lift and a rounded appearance from the front. Its straps are further apart for a wider and lower cut neck line.
If your busts are pointing upwards and outwards, it’s definitely wrong. You should be feeling the confidence now that there’s more volume at the top giving the impression of fuller busts and your boobs should not look like they are popping out.
While it’s not the best option for a great cleavage, it’s certainly brings your volume game to the next level and it doesn’t make your boobs look fake – that’s the last thing you want to see happening.
A well fitted balconette bra makes the best of your décolletage.
How many times have you ditched that pretty off-shoulder dress because you look flat in it? Pretty sure you have abandoned the one with a square neck line as well. That’s not fair!
You can definitely pair your balconette bras with some of these tops.
If a woman’s breasts are the sexiest part of her body, then having an attractive cleavage definitely adds to the charm.
This isn’t another plunge bra post.
There’s a hitch among less busty girls when they do not have enough volume to pull off that tube dress for a nice cleavage. This is something you should pay attention to.
It is extremely important to have a smooth contour from the upper chest area all the way to the bottom of the breast for a more balanced look.
I’ve picked some images where a smooth contour can be helpful.
Even if you may not have the volume, you still shouldn’t sacrifice a beautiful smooth contour or a cleavage just to fit in a tube dress or anything that reveals your upper chest.
Lingerie, even in its early days, is intended for breast enhancement so there should be no excuse why you should not be looking great in a low cut dress. What’s more when you are now in the 21st century with the never ending selections of bra styles?
With the right fit, you can still look gorgeous in a strapless gown even if you have less volume. How about a balconette bra to begin with?

Low neckline tops are easy to find and dresses with low and wide neckline are made to flatter your chest area.
It is easy to walk into a boutique and grab your favorite piece, but the ultra turn off problem is when you wear it and noticing that bits of your bra cup are showing. Not cool.
If that happens, you are probably wearing a full coverage bra which definitely is not suitable for a dress like this.
The beauty of the balconette bra lies in its semi coverage cups that provide enough support for your busts. Much support is concentrated at the bottom of the cups giving them an upward lift while moving them towards the center for a fuller look making you look more youthful.
This bra cup design eliminates cup coverage at the upper areas of your breasts and creating a fuller figure and enhancing your cleavage at the same time.
A little precaution is necessary if you do not have broad shoulders as the balconette bra comes with a set of bra straps that are wide apart. Should the straps slip off your shoulders easily, you may want to opt for a strapless balconette bra.
This bra works perfectly well for small to medium busted figures. As the bra promotes fuller busts at the upper area of the chest, big busted ladies may end up having an overflowing look resulting from this bra.
If low neckline dresses top your favorite list, a balconette bra is a MUST HAVE in your lingerie closet!
Having pointed out a few common mistakes, the next step towards flattering your chest is bra size measurement.
It is not advisable to just measure yourself once and fill your closet space with the same bra size.
Your breast size changes from time to time so it is advisable to measure yourself again when you find that your bra doesn’t fit well.
- The CORRECT bra size will give you the shape and figure you have always desired. Never underestimate the power of a perfect fit!
- Petite frames are best fitted in push up and padded bras. When choosing a push up or a padded bra, don’t be overwhelmed by the instantaneous humongous effect it has on your bust. Be it creating cleavage or lifting the breasts, choose the one that is padded at the right areas and gives the necessary lift.
- Different bra designs will give you different effects. Some of the bras that are amazing for petite frames are balconette and plunge bra. These bras come in padding as well.
- Avoid stuffing your bras with cloth or tissue paper, these can easily fall off. I think you would rather settle for small boobs rather than embarrassment.
- When using bra inserts, do take precaution as they can slide and shift throughout the day. This could be worse if you have small breasts.
- Most importantly, do check for the common boobie flattering mistakes!
