I remember the time when I went out shopping once and saw this great top that I really liked. So I quickly tried it on and found that it fit perfectly. However there was one major problem. The top had a plunging neckline and my bra cups were showing. Since at that time I did not know anything about balcony bras, I had to let go of the top and have regretted it ever since. I am sure that many of you would have also faced a similar situation at some point of time or the other. So imagine my happiness when I found out that designers had come out with a specialty bra just to solve this riddle.
I am sure you must be wondering how a simple bra can solve a major problem like this. Well, the way that this type of bra works is that it provides an additional support to the bra cups from the bottom and along the sides. This results in a rise in the breast position and enables them to move towards the center of the chest. And the best part is that it creates a natural looking cleavage which women desire when they wear a top with a plunging neck. And I can tell you by personal experience that the effect it has on everyone around you is worth every bit of penny that these bras cost.
However, the biggest advantage that a balconette bra offers is that it is top-notch when it comes to performance. It gives so much support in the lower cup and band area that the reduction of cup coverage is almost negligible. I personally own a lot of these for my wardrobe and this saves me a lot of trouble when I go out for a fashionable event plus it compliments my big bust in a natural way. Hence, if one likes to wear low-cut tops or is large in the chest department, a balcony bra is a must for your wardrobe collection.
