Which bra style is really the best to wear under a T-shirt, a low plunged top or a strapless dress? Each bra has its own functions. Some of them lift, some fill out and some create a beautiful decolletage. Others have the purpose to do just the opposite – restrain and even out. With the right bra your clothes will fit even more beautifully and feel even more comfortable. A well fitted bra should make you feel like you are not wearing it at all.
BRA STYLES & MODELS
A soft bra for the women who prefer a wireless bra. Our wireless bras are available with or without padding.
This bra model will form and support your bust with a metal- or plastic underwire, sewn in along the bottom part under the cup. Our underwire bras are available with or without padding, as well as removable padding.
This bra has molded round shaped cups, instead of seams to accomplish their shape. Comfortable for the women who prefers the smoothest bra possible, perfect to wear under thin clothing or if your bust is extra sensible. At Trofé you will find molded cups both with and without underwire.
A balconette bra will lift your bust from beneath and offers a beautiful decolletage. The shoulder straps are positioned wide apart and almost always detachable for maximum flexibility. A balconette is perfect to wear under strapless clothes or dresses with wide necklines. Excellent for women with smaller or mid-sized bust.
A bra with front closure will be opened or closed between the cups in the front. It is perfect to use for someone wth back- or shoulder pains, or has difficulties whilst getting dressed.
A bra with removable shoulderstraps. The straps are adjustable in length so that they can be worn in cross in the back, racerback style, or connect as a halterneck.
The sports bra will keep your bust in its place whether you are doing sports or moving around and gives that extra support. The material is usually breathable and is well adjusted for physical movement. There are sport bras with different firmness.
A minimizer is a bra model with the purpose to make the bust appear and feel smaller than it is. It allocates the bust in a larger, yet flatter, shape and reduces the dimensions by approximately one size. Suitable for women who feel their bust is quite large in its dimensions.
A nursing bra is used for as long as you are nursing your baby. The cups are made to open one by one so you do not have to take off the entire bra when nursing. Available with or without underwires, as well as with or without padding.
A mastectomy bra is an ordinary bra with space in the cups to fill with a prosthetic padding. The difference between a mastectomy bra and an ordinary bra with removable padding, is that the opening in the pocket of the mastectomy bra is larger.
CUPS – MODELS & TYPES
A bra has either a filled cup or a cup without padding. A bra with removable padding is a bra with padding for you to choose to either take out or keep in. Some prefer a bra without padding, especially if you do not want your bust to appear larger, or if the cup feels somewhat tight. Padding will give your bust and the bra extra support, filling and a firm round shape.
A push-up bra offers heavier padding in the cup, that will lift and push your breasts towards each other. There are different types of padding and push effects in different models. It is common for a push-up bra to have a lower plunge (deep neckline). Excellent to use if you have a smaller or mid-sized bust, or if you simply prefer a fuller decolletage.
The cup on different bras covers different areas of the breasts. We mention this in our product descriptions as either Medium Coverage or Full Coverage.
Medium Coverage is the most common cup model and is equivalent to 3/4 part or 1/2 part of a cup.
A Full Coverage cup covers almost the whole breast and offers more support for you with a larger bust or if you have a softer bust with loose skin. You may also prefer a full coverage cup if you want to feel more “covered up”.
A plunge bra has somewhat deeper plunge between the cups. Low-plunge means that it offers deeper plunge between the breasts and is perfect to wear under tops with a deeper v-neckline. It is excellent if you prefer a decolletage where you want to push-up the breast against each other. It is also preferable if you have a narrower distance between your breasts and do not care for bras with underwires that comes up high up under your breasts mid front.
