Welcome to the Balconette Bras section of the Bra Glossary. In this section, you can learn more about bras.
Balconette Bras : Balconette also often referenced as a demi cup bra. However, the balconette typically has a little less coverage then a demi cup bra. A true balconette cup will be cut horizontally just above the bust line and give ones breast the look of fullness and uplift. A balconette cup often has some padding to enhance bust size appearance. Here is an interesting piece of history for the term. The name balconette originated because men in the balcony of a theater had been looking down upon women (trying to catch a sneak peak). A balconette bra could not be seen as easily from above.
