Bra Style Guide
There is a bra for every occasion. Depending on what we are wearing, or what we are doing, there is a bra out there to suit any outfit, any level of activity, any shape or any size.
Here is a guide to some of the bra styles available at Ophelia Lingerie:
FULL CUP: For full support and coverage - the basic everyday bra.
HALF CUP: Lower cut cups with less coverage, for displaying a little more cleavage.
STRAPLESS: Without straps or with removable straps. For use with party dresses, wedding dresses, etc.
SPORTS: For maximum support during exercise, and reducing bouncing and chafing. Graded for a variety of impact levels.
T-SHIRT: Smooth, seamless and padded for wearing t-shirts and tight-fitting tops.
PLUNGE: Designed to be worn with low-cut necklines.
PUSH-UP: Padded underneath and cut low give the impression of a fuller bust and greater cleavage.
MINIMISER: Creates the appearance of a reduced bust size, for those with a fuller bust.
BALCONETTE: Offering lift and cleavage; an even lower version of the half cup.
MULTIWAY: Adjustable straps allow this bra to be worn with a variety of dress types.
SOFT CUP: No underwire makes for greater comfort, but perhaps with less support.
MOULDED: Lightly padded with foam to offer a moulded, shaped cup for support and a smoother appearance.
NURSING: For breastfeeding mothers, cups open to allow access for baby.
