The Lingerie Know it All - Difference Between Demi Bra and Full Coverage Bra


Having a drawer dedicated to your supportive and pretty friends is not enough. Knowing the difference between different styles is important too. Bras are all categorised under one big umbrella but how many of us actually go into understanding the differences between the different styles out there? At amanté, we take pride in being experts in the lingerie world and today we’re taking you through the difference between a demi bra and a full coverage bra.

What is the difference between the two? The main differences lie in the coverage. So, let’s break it down and understand the two types of coverage first.

Coverage refers to the surface area of the breast covered by a bra.

Full Coverage Bra


The full coverage bra is designed to cover the entire breast. It hides your cleavage and helps avoid spills. A full-coverage bra ensures a comfortable and fully covered experience. This style is preferred by women with larger breast sizes.

Demi Cup Bra


A demi cup or half coverage bra covers half the breast. Designed for a sexy and more appealing fit, the wide-set straps support your entire breast weight while the low cut cups lift and centre the breasts. These bras come in a variety of styles and fabrics in sizes for all women out there.
