How do Plunge Bras Compare From Brand to Brand?

Plunge bras have become increasingly prevalent on the market in recent years, and we believe it's thanks to each brand knowing and understanding what they do best.

Belle Lingerie11 February 2022


When it comes to a plunge bra, there is no "one size fits all" approach, and with good reason! After all, who would want a brand to cater to every single body shape and size, thus compromising on the quality of the fit and design overall? For this reason, we're glad that each brand has chosen to go down its own path, as it means there's a perfect fitting plunge bra for your own body shape, size and preferences!


Plunge bras have become increasingly prevalent on the market in recent years, and we believe it's thanks to each brand knowing and understanding what they do best. The only issue is, how do YOU know which plunge bra, by which brand, is the right one for you? In this blog, we'll cover how to plunge bras compare from brand to brand.


What is a plunge bra?

If you're not already familiar with the traditional plunge bra, then take a look around this blog, and prepare to become an expert by the time you've finished reading!


Before we dive into exactly which brand does what best, we need to understand the basics of the Plunge Bra, why it was created and what its purpose is. The Plunge Bra was designed with a low neckline, to create the perfect choice of lingerie for low-cut tops and dresses. Plunge bras are renowned for showcasing your best assets and promoting a show-stopping cleavage, but you should choose wisely on the specifics of the plunge bra, depending upon your size and shape.


Here at Belle Lingerie, we stock Underwired Plunge Bras and Non-Wired Plunge Bras, all at prices you can't refuse! Regardless of whether you opt for a wired plunge bra or a non-wired plunge bra, you can expect the straps to be adjustable to offer a unique fit. However, not all plunge bras have adjustable straps, so be sure to read the product description to make sure that you find the plunge bra that works for you. We would make the case that it is very common for plunge bras to secure at the rear, with traditional hook and eye fastening too, but again, check the item's description, as you may find that there are some other, fascinating methods of fastening a plunge bra... particularly in our Seductive Plunge Bras category! We'll say no more.


How do plunge bras fit different body sizes and shapes?

If you rock a more petite figure, then we suggest that you opt for padded plunge bras if you're after natural-looking uplift. However, if you have a smaller chest or cup size and you're seeking maximum cleavage, then we highly recommend choosing a Push-up Plunge BraAn all-around, fantastic brand that is highly sought-after by our more petite customers is After Eden. This brand caters specifically to women of a smaller chest and cup size, therefore offering the best possible fit and support if you fall under this category. With an array of styles and colours, you can save up to 50% off After Eden right now, in our Special Offers.



By contrast, if you're on the curvier side and you're looking for a plunge bra for a fuller bust, then we would recommend that you opt for a Non-Padded Plunge Bra. This is because most women that are fuller-busted often find that Padded Plunge Bras add unnecessary volume to the bust that can cause an awkward fit with clothing. There are often times when women that seek fuller bust lingerie are looking to minimise their bust volume, but still want to reap the benefits of donning a plunge bra. If this sounds like you, then we highly suggest the LY0904 Maidenform Full-Figure Minimiser Bra. It reduces bust size so that clothes fit better, can help correct your posture and allows you to finally wear a supportive plunge bra!



Which plunge bra is the best bra for me?

So, now that we have covered the basics, we can help to answer your cry of "which plunge bra is the bra for me?" It all comes down to you. We need you to think about exactly what you require from a plunge bra. To keep things nice and simple, we have grouped the brands below according to what they are known best for when it comes to all things plunge bras.
