Balconette bra: who is comfortable with it

The balcony bra is one of our women's favorite models. But who is okay with it?

Every woman has a particular and rather unique breast shape.

There are thousands of types, as stated by breast surgeon Giorgio Baratelli, president of LILT - Italian League for the Fight against Cancer of Como: «The breasts have a different shape for each woman: the breast is a peculiar characteristic like the color of the eyes, height, mouth shape, etc. It is precisely from these differences that the human desire to classify the various forms arises. However, there is no scientific relevance in this kind of aesthetic classifications"

Having said this, it is still possible to identify maxi typologies by considering the most common forms.

Based on the shape of your breasts, you should choose the most suitable bra model, so that it can offer good support, comfort and harmony of the silhouette.

The balcony bra adapts quite well to different types of breasts, both in the case of large breasts and small breasts.

Balconette bra: characteristics

The balcony bra has a wide, low neckline that leaves the upper part of the breast exposed. It is equipped with underwire to support the breasts and the straps are spaced apart, which enhances the neck, shoulders and especially the décolleté. Another advantage of the balcony is given by its low cut which makes it invisible under dresses with rather deep necklines. It is often used strapless so in most cases, it comes with removable straps.

What type of breast is it suitable for?

Why does the balcony bra suit almost everyone? Because thanks to its structure it brings the breasts closer and pulls them up, so it is also sexy. It is very flattering especially for those with lateral breasts and distant breasts. But it also suits those with drop-shaped breasts and more.

Lateral breast: characterized by the tendency of the nipples to protrude towards opposite sides, the lateral breast is generally very small and with an extended central fold, which makes it slightly asymmetrical. In this case the right bra to choose is one with cup and underwire. Whether it's a T-Shirt Bra or a balcony bra but the important thing is that it's push up. The balcony is able to bring the breasts back to the central position and the push up helps to push them upwards at the same time.

Distant breast: similar to lateral breast, distant breast has nipples that do not point to the hips but is still characterized by the presence of a decidedly extended furrow. The balcony bra is confirmed as the ideal choice for anatomical shapes of this type as it is structured under the cups, supporting the breasts and enhancing their shape.

Teardrop breast: it is rather shapely and round. It is very similar to the bell breast but with one main difference: it is fuller in the upper part, while the bell breast widens towards the bottom. For this type of breast I recommend choosing a balcony bra, preferably without push up.

Without a doubt, these are the shapes that the balcony bra looks best on, but that doesn't mean that it can't be worn if you have a different shape.

Why wear the bra model that fits us well

The bra is a very important underwear because it supports a delicate and visible part of the body. There are many women who wear the wrong model every day, making a mistake that affects their entire figure. With a suitable bra, which supports and enhances the shape, it is possible to make the breasts appear higher but also more supported and firm, thus harmonizing the entire silhouette. Furthermore, especially for those who have to deal with generous shapes, good breast support is perfect for not weighing down the back. And to keep the spine in an upright position, without making it curve forward due to the weight of the breasts. Finally, a bra that supports in the right way allows you to wear it without suffering from its presence and becomes an indispensable beauty ally to wear every day. Without leaving marks from the braces or splints on the skin, depending on the model chosen.
