An alternative to a strapless bra is a demi bra. Also called a balconette, demi bra style can be purchased with or without straps. They are designed to provide full coverage support with less material for low-cut shirts and blouses. Demi bras give lift and show off a considerable amount of cleavage. Look for demis in bright colors, sexy patterns and as part of bra and panty sets. They are great if you are looking for an alternative to a plain strapless bra and the coordinating panty can have a devastatingly sexy effect.
