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.
