Demi in French means half, the word was adopted to the English dictionary later. Today Demi-Coverage Bras are crowd-pullers. The Demi-Coverage Bra is a cup variation in which the cups are one inch above the nipples, covering only half a portion of the breasts. These have been peers of the Full-Coverage Bras for years, although often people contemplate what each one must do and what is best for them.

Although it is technically called a half-cup bra, these days designers have made it 3/4, so the cup gives a 3/4 coverage which is a little more than half.

Since the Bra provides only half coverage, women with larger breasts have their reservations wearing it. But a half cup does not mean less support, because 90% of the support for your breasts comes from the band of a bra. The gore, which is the center part of the bra is between the two cups varies in size in every Type of Bra. In a demi cup, the gore is shorter than it is in a Full Coverage Bra. One end of either cups is attached to the gore this is why the length of the gore will largely determine the size of the cups.

By the look of it, it may resemble a push-up or a plunge bra because it shows the cleavage. But that is only for women who naturally have a defined cleavage. The demi-coverage bra plays no role in the cleavage.

A cool perk of wearing the demi coverage is that, if it has underwires, it won’t dig under your arms, because the side wings are shorter, so the underwires do not up until your armpits. A demi-coverage Underwire Bra will be a lot more comfortable for petite women.


A very widespread confusion among women is about identification of these two bras. Some brands inter-change its name, but the original meaning of a balconette bra is elaborated below.

A balconette cup is completely horizontal, the cups are at 180 degrees. They resemble a balcony railing, and they reveal most of the breasts. Largely aimed at giving a sex appeal, this bra is often fancied and doesn’t work out well for everyday use. To enhance this feature of the bra, they come with underwires too.

Both the demi and Balconette Bras come in beguiling lace and lace overalls. A lot of Shyle’s everyday bras have demi-coverages.


A well-fitting bra immaterial of its style can be worn by anybody. Women with cup sizes D or DD or above can also wear a demi-cup bra because for bigger sizes the straps are wider and some even have an additional hook & eye closure to help support the bust. If a demi-cup is too tight for you, you can tell from the double boob look it creates, there will be evident breast spillage in the top portion.

For women with slender or smaller breasts, wearing a demi-cup looks it look bigger.

What matters more is what you expect your undergarment to do? For example, when you wear a T-Shirt Bra you expect a good shape and smooth look and in an underwire bra, you expect your bust to be lifted a little more than usual, making you look younger.  Likewise, when you wear a demi-coverage bra you expect it to serve a function. What this bra allows you to do is to wear low-neck tops and dresses. Many don’t choose this as a daily wear bra, but it can be the ideal undergarment for round neck and boat neck clothes.
