Do you have larger breasts or full cups that make wearing button-down shirts a challenge? Would you feel more confident with a streamlined silhouette? If the answer is yes, you might want to give minimizer bras a try.
Minimizer bras work by minimizing the projection of your breasts. Most styles can reduce the appearance of your cup size by up to an inch. The cup shape of this style of bra features a wider diameter and a shorter projection and works by smoothing the breast tissue and moving it more towards your underarms, center cleavage and waist.
A common misconception is that purchasing a size down will create a minimizing effect. This, however, is untrue and will only cause you discomfort. We recommend purchasing your normal size in a minimizer.
Think minimizer bras might be for you? Here are some reasons to try out the smoothing bra style.
Reasons to Try Minimizer Bras
1. If there are gaps between the buttons on your button-down shirt.
Instead of buying a shirt that’s too large (as some women do), try a minimizer. If you reduce the projection of your bust, your shirt will button up without gapping.
2. If form-fitting clothes pull across your chest.
Avoid that dreaded line across your fitted tee or blouse by wearing a minimizer bra underneath. A reduced silhouette will help clothes hang better over your body.
3. If you think that your breasts feel out of proportion to your body.
Do you have a smaller frame with large breasts? This can make some women feel that their chest is not proportional to their body. A minimizer can help create a more balanced silhouette if that’s what you’re looking for.
