As much as we love today’s many skin-baring fashion trends—think skimpy, strappy tops and cut-out pants—they have, without a doubt, made shopping for the right intimates a bit more complicated. Thankfully on the shirt front, there are plenty of bra styles available to suit our more daring sartorial choices. For example, for backless dresses and tricky camis, adhesive bras come to the rescue. And for necklines that keep getting lower and lower? A plunge bra will be your new best friend. Plunge bras look similar to the average bra, but feature angled cups that create a plunging V shape and give you the lift and support you need while showing a little more skin. This allows them to wear more discreetly, never peeking out of deep V-necks and other lower neckline styles. Plus, many styles are also designed to give your cleavage a nice boost—which is never a bad thing. After sifting through countless options, we rounded up the 26 best plunge bras on the market. From lacy, underwired push-ups to comfy cotton bralettes, there’s something for every level of support and dressing situation. Keep reading to shop our picks.
When shopping for a plunge bra, the most important thing to keep in mind is what you’re planning to wear it with. Classic plunge bras are suitable for most lower-cut tops (and, thus, great to have on hand in your underwear drawer), but plunge bras with extra-deep U-shaped plunges are great for super low necklines—think those you may find on an evening dress or a going-out top. Another important factor is the level of support you need; plunge bras come in many styles, from wireless bralettes to ultra-supportive underwire styles, so choose yours based on the bra styles you typically find to be the most comfortable. If you need more lift or want to enhance your visible cleavage, look for styles with reinforced cups that push the breasts upwards and forwards.
The material should also come into play, but this is really up to personal preference. If you’re seeking pretty lingerie, you’ll find plenty of plunge style bras that don’t skimp on the lace or other sexy details, whereas plenty of brands offer comfy microfiber T-shirt bras or cotton bralettes with the same plunging cut.
