Demi bras are designed to be barely there. They are perfect for wide neck or low cut tops, as they are designed just big enough to cover what it needs to.  Demi bras are for small to average size women as they provide much less coverage than a traditional full cup bra.

A Shaping Bra adds padding where you need it and aids in creating a smooth, symmetrical shape underneath her clothing. Shaping bras are typically available in sizes up to DDD; larger than that and a custom bra may be necessary.
