The Padded Balconette Bra

We love a bra that features a light foam lining like the Curvy Kate Daily Dream Balconette Bra, and this makes it a perfect LBB! Without adding any extra volume to your bust, the light padding helps to lift and shape your breasts and also adds an extra layer between your bust and your clothes – great for concealing nipples if that’s something you’re conscious of. Smooth microfibre fabric is sleek and comfortable, keeping the look overall minimal and easy going.

The Side Support Bra

Are your boobs a little side heavy? Looking for some forward projection? Try the Panache Envy bra. This gorgeous LBB is non-padded but has supportive bottom cups that lift the breast from below, giving a great shape. The top cup has a pretty floral stretch lace that moulds to your shape, while the clever side sections direct your breast tissue forwards, meaning it works great under all kinds of outfits to give you a sleek silhouette.

The Sheer Plunge Bra

With its sports-luxe styling, the Curvy Kate Lifestyle plunge bra is sleek, stylish and sexy. The lightweight mesh is breathable and comfortable, so much so that you’ll barely even feel it when it’s on! It gives your cleavage a subtle boost by pushing your breasts in and up, without the overbearing effect of a push-up bra. Great for under a cheeky low neckline!
