"Balconette bras fall under the 'Demi' category. These work great for a 'slope' breast shape, where the weight of the breast tissue falls on the bottom. The Demi will give you minimal coverage on the top, and a great, natural-looking boost. It's a classic, romantic cut. This is not a good shape for women with a 'full' breast shape, where the balance of the breast tissue is on top, as they would be liable to spill out of this type of bra."
