The Half-cup Bra
What the hell is a Half-cup bra? Yes, I can hear your very words whizzing out of the speakers (turn your microphone off).
A Half-cup bra (sometimes called a Demi-cup) is actually one of the most popular bra styles available. Here it is in the flesh, so to speak;

|Here it is again, with added distraction|
Imagine the cup is a circle; the full circle would be a full-cup, so this one would look like half a circle.
There is also a 3/4 cup and, wait for it, a 1/4 cup; is the image playing in your head? Thought so!
Why is this half-cup (1/2 cup) bra so popular?
The answer is pretty simple really, it looks fantastic! Both from our point of view and that of your partner. It allows her to wear low-cut tops and dresses whilst staying well supported. The straps tend to be wider apart, so it also gives the option of wearing tops that have a square-cut neck-line. One of the main reasons is that it give a very flattering shape to the breast, giving the effect of greater volume.
Without doubt the most important thing is she must have adequate support from a well fitting bra. If she has never been measured for a bra, then go down to a local lingerie shop (preferably Blush Lingerie in Macclesfield) to be measured by an expert. Trust me, it makes a whole lot of difference when your girl feels comfortable, supported and happy about her shape.
It is also important to remember that you 'get what you pay for'. If you buy a cheap t-shirt from the market, it may look good before it's washed, then it could look awful, but it's not the same with a cheap bra; it will indeed look awful, but also, it won't support her properly and even worse than that it could injure her.
Take a look at the half-cup bras on Blush Lingerie's site, brush up on your powers of recognition, then next time you go into a lingerie shop you can casually say, "that's a very stylish half-cup bra" and how impressed will she be with you then?
