How to spot a plunge bra

All shapes have their own distinct features. How to spot a plunge bra? We’ve listed the main features below.

  • The center gore and the underwire both have a low cut
  • The cups are V-shaped or heart-shaped
  • The straps are set close to the neck

A plunge bra is not a push-up bra

Plunge bras and push-up bras share a similar shape: They both have a deep, V-shaped cut and center the breasts. So what’s the difference? A push-up bra has extra padding that lifts the breasts and a plunge bra does not. However, both bras do create the same effect: Irresistible cleavage. Our advice: If you have a smaller cup size, we recommend a push-up bra.
