Insider Style: Unlined Balconette

The balconette bra has a designer-made and almost pin-up girl quality. If you like things that feel feminine and super luxurious, then you most likely will love the balconette style. This style reveals more than other styles because the height of the cups are shorter and the straps are more wider set than normal, meaning that this style of bra can stay hidden even under the most plunging of necklines. The great thing about unlined balconettes is that they still offer support without the extra weight and bulk of too much padding. As a result, they feel lightweight and comfortable, and because they show more of the natural form, they also feel sexy in a very subtle way. With or without an underwire, unlined bras are best suited to be worn under light and airy clothes, as they look less bulky than their padded counterparts. The seamed cups give an uplifted shape and more support. It is more likely to get away with being embellished with more feminine detailing than other styles, such as pleats, ruffles, bows. You name it, the unlined balconette can pull it off!
