These kinds of bra cups are designed mainly for ladies who have petite figures. With padded cups, they can create an illusion of cleavage and a larger bust. And if you like to keep it minimal, then some styles don’t showcase too much breast as well.

2. Seamed bra cups

There are so many categories of seamed bra cups that you may choose from, such as vertical center seams, transversal seams, horizontal seams, and even diagonal seams. And also, they are designed with two or three-section cups that are further sewn together. They are usually made of fabrics like silk, lace, satin, and others. The best thing I like about them is that they offer a better fit and support.

3. Seamless bra cups

These bra cups are suitable to wear underneath tight-fitted outfits, and they are molded in a particular form. This form further takes shape and fit. With a transparent and lined design, you can style it on all sorts of occasions.

4. Balconette bra cups

The balcony bra cups are cut horizontally above the bust line. I like these kinds of bra cups because they give the breast fullness, and they are comfortable too. Pair it with your shirt or blouse.

5. Contour bra cups

If you are afraid of your breasts looking huge and looking for a natural lift, then counter bra cups will suit you. These cups are designed with a thin foam lining and with an underwire. Wear it with a seamless shirt for a darling look.


6. Full bra cups

Full bra cups cover the breast and provide perfect comfort and support. The straps are lined up. And if you have deflated breasts, then wearing full cups will accommodate your bust well.

7. Minimizer bra cups

Minimizer bra cups are designed to fit evenly and craft an illusion of a smaller bust. In outfits that need a streamlined silhouette, such as turtlenecks and shirts, this bra cup will be all-rounded to give that natural shape.

8. Nursing bra cups

Nursing bra cups are mainly designed for ladies who have given birth. They allow space for the baby to feed without taking off the bra. Also, it accommodates the changing breast size due to its stretch.

9. Demi bra cups

Demi bra cups suit ladies with smaller breasts. Pair it with your turn-down colored shirt, a fitted dress, or even a jumpsuit.

10. Balcony bra cups

These kinds of bra cups can enhance the breasts, and they also lend less coverage than that of a full-cup bra.
