Usually worn as a very erotic piece of lingerie, the open cup bra, also called the cupless or shelf bra, has no support cups unlike the regular bra. It doesn’t provide adequate coverage because the nipples or the entire breast are made visible on an outer garment. This type of bra is not meant to be worn by women with sagging breasts as sagging breasts do require support. It is designed for small breasts since the bra provides a nice lifting and nipple-enhancing effect.
Some women who wear the open cup bra report a feeling of heightened sensuality and femininity as well as increased level of comfort due to the fact that this type of bra allows the breast to be held naturally and movement of the wearer is less impeded. More freedom is provided to a woman. But because of the nature of how this bra is designed in which there is far less coverage, some items of clothing like a white t-shirt or a light-colored cotton top does not go along with it. Therefore, they are not recommended to be worn when going to church or run errands.
The open cup bra is perfect for those moments you want to get naughty and playful with your partner. It makes the woman more seductive and alluring in the bedroom.
