Different Types of Bras


Here at Lavinia, we offer only the best designs and quality at an affordable price. We also strive to make sure that each shopping experience is the best one possible. To do so, we offer various categories for ease of shopping and 24/7 customer care support. Even with all this shopping for lingerie can still prove a little unnerving especially when you are shopping for someone else.

Whether it is a gift or a favor, shopping for lingerie can prove tricky, even bra shopping can prove frustrating when you aren’t sure what you are looking at or for.  Here are six different types of bras and three exclusive styles for each.

Sheer Bra.

Sheer Lace Balcony Bra @ Lavinia Lingerie A fashion bra made of transparent materials. Combine underwire with sheer mesh cups made from lace or tulle and you have a bra that is both supportive and revealing. Sheer Lace Bra, Gorteks Pamela, Sheer Mesh Bra, Axami Bal Harbour and Sheer Bra, Sawren Mint.


Balconette Bra.

Best Balconette Bra Darling @ Lavinia Lingerie A low-cut demi bra with a retro silhouette. This version of the demi bra is infamous for its push-up effect. Creating a voluptuous silhouette. Perfect for lower cut tops and dresses, and a great match for any piece set lingerie. Balconette Bra, Lavinia's Darling, Lace Balconette Bra, Rosme Annija and Balcony Bra, Gorsenia Paris.



Sheer Lace Bralette @ Lavinia Lingerie A bralette is a non-underwire bra with no padding or molded cups. It can come in varying cuts. Consider it the middleman between a t-shirt bra and sports bra. They are optimized for comfort and style, but not support due to their lack of an underwire. Sexy Bralette, Fleur Velvet Crush , Soft Lace Bralette, Lisca Forever and Sexy Lacy Bralette, Oh La La Cheri Alice.


Demi Bra.

Sexy Demi Bra, Sheer Lace Bridal Lingerie A bra with wide-set straps, half-shaped cups and horizontal bust line. These offer support and do a good job of creating a deep cleavage. They are a great pair for tops and dresses that have a wide shoulder, this way you aren’t forced to constantly hide the straps. Sexy Demi Bra, Sawren Ellice, Sheer Demi Bra, Sawren Twist, and Sheer Mesh Demi Bra, Ajour Pantheon.


Plunge Bra.

Deep Plunge Bra, Lavinia Lingerie Sofia A bra with low cut cuts joined by thin center piece. Plunge bra’s like the name implies are any bra’s that plunge deeply at the center cut. They are perfect for tops and dresses with deep cuts. Deep Plunge Bra, Lavinia's Sofia, Push-Up Plunge Bra, Laumelle Kiss, and Non Wired Plunge Bra, Gossard Glamour.


T-shirt Bra.

Molded T-Shirt Bra Conturelle A bra with thin and smoothly contoured cups to give optional shape under t-shirts. Like the name implies these are perfect for t-shirts and can be summarized as your everyday wear bra. Offers support and hold with added comfort. Memory T-Shirt Bra, Conturelle, Wire-Free T-Shirt Bra, Montelle Intimates, Everyday Shaping Bra, Dominique's Marlena.

Good luck!
