What Is A Minimiser Bra?
Friday, 5 October 2012 | Elaine Needham
How does a minimiser bra work?
Minimiser bras have wider cups than a standard bra. The minimiser works by spreading and redistributing the breast tissue across the space in the wider cup. Although your bust size will not shrink, the appearance and projection of your breasts will be less prominent.
What features do minimiser bras have?
Minimiser bras are usually made from fabrics such as microfibre which is known for its flexibility, cotton for its softness and nylon for its strength. Any bra made from these materials should give you the support you desire. Wide straps are common features on bigger cup sizes. Wide straps distribute the weight they are carrying and prevent having sore shoulders that thinner straps would create from digging into the skin.
