Bra - Half Cup

Half cup bras allow for an open and square-cut neckline and leave the very top of the bust exposed. The centre front of the bra remains high and separates the breasts while the shoulder straps are positioned far to the side of the cups.

A half cup style can be padded or non-padded, and designs with seams will often have vertical seams to direct the breast tissue upwards for a round and full shape on top. French brands like Chantelle and Simone Pérèle are known for producing delicate half cup styles, often with no padding, up to EU F & G cups. For larger cup sizes, Curvy Kate offers a number of padded half cup styles.

This style of bra can work well for women with shallower breasts, or with less fullness in the top of their breasts, as there is less bra coverage at the top neck edge to fill. Women with very full breasts should move around while wearing the bra to ensure that the breast tissue stays in place.

The straps on a half cup bra are often set very wide to allow for the square neckline, and women with narrow or sloping shoulders will have difficulties with the straps staying in place on a half cup bra, or may find that the cup and strap placement is too wide or high in the underarm area where the strap connects to the cup.
