Vertically seamed cups offer natural round shaping. This style bra is a must-have for women who have bottom-heavy (sagging) breasts. Trim may vary. See fitting note for size selection.

so much for Vickies secret By Dana from Athens, NY
I've been a Vickies girl for as long as I can remember. Probably cause I worked there since shortly after graduating high school. I was blessed with a perfectly matched set of 36 C's and loved to show them off so during my two years of working there I purchased one of practically every balconette bra they had. Ten years latter I'm now a 38 D and I still like showing my girls off but without the employee discount I had I can't afford shopping at Vickies anymore. My girlfriend was weeding out some of her old bras, one happening to be the 6145. It was love at first sight and it was my size so I asked if I could try it on and if fit like a glove but it definitely showed signs of wear. She turned me onto Lavinia Lingerie and unfortunately I found the 6145 was sold out so I ordered the 6160 which arrived the other day and OMG  does it ever pick the girls up and show them off. I just placed an order for two more, White and Black  

Loved the first so much bought 2 more! By Atin from Greensborough, Australia
I just love my very first of these 6160 shelf/balcony bras SO much - I've ordered - and today received 2 more in black and white. If ever there were a PERFECT bra in comfort, size, boost/uplift and sexiness then this bra is it. I now wear them every day. Thanks Lavinia Lingerie for introducing me to this fabulous bra!

Wow - outstanding 'lift' bra! By Christina from Melbourne, Australia
After having 2 kids and approaching 45 I felt I needed some extra help in the 'uplift' area and over the years have tried a number of bras and have been always been somewhat disappointed in the results. I'm always reluctant to purchase online knowing it's difficult to match to the correct size. Well I have just received this bra from the USA (6160/Beige/36B) and WOW - it fits perfectly creating an absolutely brilliant result lifting, boosting and supporting the girls with absolute comfort. I feel REALLY sexy wearing this bra but it's so comfortable it will now be one of my my day-to-day bras. More orders on the way in Black and White! Thanks for the great service Armands it arrived in Australia in only 7days!

Great Bra!!! By Melonie from NY
Because the name describes it as a "push up" I was expecting padding along the bottom and sides like all other push ups I have encountered. This bra is actually very lightly lined but gives AMAZING lift. I actually receive better lift with this bra than any other push up I have ever tried (and I work at Victoria's Secret). The material is great quality and extremely comfortable. All around it's worth every penny I spent. The only downside is its sold out in black and white :-/

Forget Victoria Secret By Noel Padilla from Miami, FL US
My wife has had trouble finding proper fit bras that looked good and felt good. I got her measurements and ordered 3 different styles this being one of them. She loved all three, they look beautiful on her.

Awesome bra By Mandy from Wy
I bought this bra after finding your website by accident and I LOVE it. I have been struggling trying to find a bra that holds my girls up and out without pushing them out(I hate the muffin top)! This bra is perfect I want to order another one in different color but not in stock :( Can't wait til they restock!

The absolute best bra I've ever owned By Marilyn from Alabama
The support is wonderful. Super sexy. Puts the girls back where they belong!! Ordering Nother one in different color now!!

Love it...... By anonymous from unspecified
Love this bra, very true to size and is comfortable. Highly recommend it.

good-bye, you-know-who's secret! By Michael Jacobs from Belding, MI US
I purchased 2 of your balcony bras, and I'm absolutely thrilled with their fit, quality, sexiness, price and comfort!! All of these 5-star ratings are well-deserved! So happy I found your website! Your customer service is so wonderful!

good By Jennifer from North salt lake, Utah
My chest is bottom heavy, so this bra style is what I need. I'm 5"7, 135lbs. My only complaint: I wish it came in a 30 band!!!! I would buy 10 of them. Because the smallest size is a 32, it is not perfect for me.

Best bra EVER! By Jessicah from Maryland
I love, love, love this bra! I'm a 36D, and have implants. Mine are under the muscle though, so they don't sit up as perky as most others and (believe it or not) they're pretty natural looking, which was the goal. In 2008 I bought this bra in black, with hopes that it would lift them up for a little extra vavoom. Within a few months I'd placed another order for the rest of the colors because it made me feel so sexy AND was such a perfect fit. Over the following years I wore them daily until literally they couldn't take it anymore. In that time I'd gotten a new email address so I no longer had the sales confirmation & couldn't for the life of me remember the name of this site! I've tried many similar bras and NONE compare. Recently - by stroke of luck - I found this site again & you can bet I've bookmarked it! I am SO HAPPY to wearing my favorite bra again, and my boyfriend is happy too... He says this bra is by far the hottest bra I've ever owned. WIN-WIN!!!

Not for women with close set breasts By Debbie N from Rochester NY
I was very excited to receive the package after reading all if the positive reviews. However, I found this was not the right bra for me. The center gore is too wide for me and I had to actively pull my breasts apart to get them in the cups. The underwire is very broad based and almost ends up under my arms. The cup is quite low cut and while it is sexy it does create a bulging effect on me after I move around a bit. So while I was hoping for the appearance of fuller breasts, mine were not pushed in the right direction. So now I am left with a bra I will likely never wear. I will say the delivery was prompt, the packing was nice and the bra itself is of good quality. I just wish that I could find a similar type of bra that is fitted for me!

Love it! By L. from Seattle, WA US
Beautiful fabric, great fit, so comfortable! So well made, it feels very luxurious to wear! I ordered two and will probably order more.

In Love By Betty from Florence,SC
I usually wear a 36DD. Afler talkng (e-mail) with Janine in Customer Care, I purchased this bra in size 34DDD. From the first moment I put it on, I LOVED IT !!! It is such a joy to wear this bra. It lifts my breast which makes my waist appear smaller and is the MOST confortable bra I've ever worn.

My new favorite bra By G.H. from Maryland
Fits well with excellent support. Truly a "boob job" in a bra. And, the service was excellent, as well. Thank you.

BEST fitting bra I have ever tried on! By SS from Fargo, North Dakota
I purchased this style in both black and white. I at first had trouble with sizing but Lavinia customer service was very helpful in helping me select the correct size not just from my measurements but from specific characteristics of the fit of other bras. I am officially a 38F and this is the prettiest and most flattering bra I have tried on in this size. Instead of just pushing the girls together it lifts them to create a very sexy neckline ;)

Most comfortable bra I've ever worn By S.P. from New Hampshire
Aaah, about sums it up. I wear DDD and have always struggled to find something that was supportive, comfortable and pretty. This bra is it. At the end of a long day I still feel great, no neck, shoulder or back pain. Thanks!!

best bra ever By MJB from Phoenix
I am a 38F and couldn't find a balconette bra that didn't reveal my nipples, but this one does. It supports me well and the wide set staps allow for wearing under wide neck tops....Love it and will be getting more!!

Beautiful Bra! By KCB from Nevada
Super nice bra and craftsmanship. The beauty of this bra is waaaay better than anything at Victorias Secret or Fredericks. Super sexy. Because it is a shelf bra the cup size is smaller and I should have gone up a size in cup, but it makes it more sexy for sure.

Beautiful and comfortable By Melissa from Solon Springs, WI
I love this bra! I think it's supportive and comfortable! Would definitely buy again!!

favorite bra EVER! By anonymous from unspecified
I'm 25 and have had a large chest for a few years now, and am just starting to look around for better (not from Target) bras and this one is absolutely fabulous! So comfortable, and it's the first bra I've ever owned that actually holds them up. Couldn't be happier, definitely ordering again and trying other styles from Lavinia!

Perfect fit and an eye-popper By SDH from APO Europe
I bought this for my wife as a sexy bra thinking she would only wear it on special occasions. It was so comfortable she wouldnt take it off to try on a 2nd one. She wears it as an everyday bra under anything. She finally has a bra that she isnt self conscious wearing because she isnt busting over the top of it. The look and shape it gives her drives me crazy. She is usually a 36 or 38D so I guessed and ordered a 38D and it was a perfect fit.

A fantastic bra! I ordered 2 more! By BB from Minnesota
Finally a great looking bra that does what it says it will. Great support, cleavage-enhancing, push-up and it fits wonderfully. You don't start to fall out after a couple wearings. Quality material and design. I ordered one white one and a week later ordered two more colors. Love this bra! Well worth the price!

Sexy and Comfortable By J from California
I have a wide sternum so I am always looking for bras that will improve my cleavage (tough to do). This bra fits my shape well. I do have two recommendations: (1) the cups are cut very low so adding an additional 1/4 inch would be great; and (2) the bra shows under t-shirts so making the edge of the cups smoother/thinning might help.

Very nice bra By anonymous from unspecified
I needed a special bra for my wedding dress, and this one was a good choice. I am too busty for a strapless and needed something that could not ony defy gravity but also not show with a wide scooped neckline. This bra really makes my bustline look better than it ever has (38DD), holds them in place and looks natural. The cups barely cover my nipples which feels strange after having spent a lifetime with full coverage bras, but the support is excellent. I am having a little trouble keeping my straps up. My shoulders are not very wide and the wide-set straps want to slide off even though they are set as short as possible. But this is really a nice bra and I will enjoy wearing it on my wedding day and on other special occasions. Don't think I will use it for an every day bra since I don't want to have to pin straps to the garment all the time to keep them up.

great fit By JC from Dallas
This may be the first bra that has every really fit me. I have wide set breasts and because of this most of my bras gap at the top. This balconette style bra works the best for me and I'm really enjoying this bra!

Surprisingly Amazing! By Maggie from Los Angeles
I read all the reviews on-line but I was still skeptical. Generally I spend about $80-$120 on my good bras so I thought this might be cheaply constructed or have a poor fit. I was proven wrong on all accounts. This is a very nicely made and well fitting bra. It gives excellent support (I'm 34DDD/E) without making me look cartoonish and was true to size. I would recommend this bra to anyone. I ordered it in both the beige and the black and hope they make it in additional prints or fabrics in the future.
A first time customer, but one that will come back for this brand again!

Love it By anonymous from NY
I love this bra. The silhouette it creates is very sexy. My husband absolutely loves the way the bra makes me look. I'm definitely ordering others.

Great Bra! By anonymous from unspecified
Offers support and it's beautiful!

I love this bra. Very sexy. By TJ from CO
I love this bra. Very sexy. Comfortable. My husband really likes it too. I like the straps on the beige over the black. The straps on the black seem a little firm. The straps on the beige are more pliable. More comfortable with the first wearing.

LOVE IT By JoAnn Shiver from Saint George Island, FL US
The is the first bra I have found that made me feel totally sexy with all the support I needed. Only complaint is I wish there were other colors.

Fabulous!!! By Rebecca from MA US
Great support and comfort, with the ability to wear lower cut and scoop necklines. Very Sexy....Purchased the Beige, in my size a 38 DD. Fits Great. Will be going back for the Black as well. Quick delivery and the tissue paper wrapping is a nice "High End" touch....... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!

very sexy balcony style bra By Anne from Ventura
Iam a 40 ddd and this bra gives excellent support. This is a high quality comfortable bra. I have ordered a second bra. My husband says the balcony style is very sexy.

Fits better than any bra By E. from VA
I am so incredibly impressed by how quickly the bra got to me! The best part is that it fits better than any bra I have found in years! You can be assured that I will be a frequent customer! Thank you so much!

Lovely and best choice By Alice from PA
I am a 40C and like a nice lift. I also have very fair skin. The beige color of this bra is so nice, not too peachy. Looks great under white. I purchased this bra as well as the 6877 Shelf Cup Lace Bra. This bra was the best. In comparison, the straps on 6877 were shorter by 2". These straps were perfect for me when fully extended. Highly recommend.

A wonderful bra By A from Australia
The first moment I put this bra on, I knew it was a perfect fit, true to size. Mine is a 40DD. It's so comfortable! It looks so daring and sexy, yet is surprisingly practical, too. Nice and high around the sides to make me feel secure. Nice and low around the front to make me feel sexy. Thank you!

Looks great & is comfortable! By JS from Midwest USA
These bras are wonderful! Smooth silhouette, great lift. Looks good under all my clothes. Thanks for having them in my size!

Best Bra for the Girls By kathrine from texas
This bra is gorgeous. Makes the girls look great. Love the wide straps. I'm 52 and my boobs look better than ever in this bra! Do take note of the "fitting note" about cup size. You might want to go up a cup size to avoid the girls jumping out. When I bend down my girls tend to fall out!

not for me By Sandy White from Toledo, Ohio
This bra was so pretty and comfortable. It also shaped me beautifully. BUT the front edge above the breasts was so visible under clothes that I returned it. That's unfortunate since there are very few shelf bras available in 36DD...

Best Shelf Bra Ever! By Dean from Pennsylvania
Over a number of years I have spent serious money for a variety of shelf, balcony and demi bras for my wife. As a generous 36DD, she has never looked that good in any of them - until now. The 6160 is cut slightly lower than 6877 (which she now adores). But I like her appearance even better in the 6160 - it is a sexy, hot, push up bra that is fabulous in low cut tops and with sweater tops. She tends to feel she might "come out" of it with too much up/down motion - so far, it hugs her breasts in place.

Sexy bras for larger ladies By CG from FL
Our experience with two previous purchases has proven that you sell products that are well made and unique in that you sell pretty, and sexy bras for larger ladies. Not everyone has to be a 36C to want to look good for their man.

Perfect! By Laura from Washington
Just received my balcony bra, what a dream! It's very comfortable and plumps the girlie-girls right where they'll make a nice statement for those oh so visual boys! Thank you so much!

Response to AMAZING By Wendi from PA
Just wanted to let you know that the reason you are having the problem with the white shirts is because that you are NEVER EVER supposed to wear a white bra under a white shirt. You should try something along the Nude color and I bet you will see a difference.

No kidding By anonymous from unspecified
This bra really is hands down THE most comfortable sexy bra you will ever wear. I read the reviews, made my order skeptically, but no joke- after I tried it on , I ordered it in all 3 colors. It is true to size and the lining is perfect- don't worry about it being too cushy- it's not. Buy this bra, you won't be sorry!!!

Amazing! By Tanya from New Mexico
After reading all the fabulous reviews on this bra I just had to try it... and they were all right on! This bra fits amazingly perfect and I am a busty woman coming in at a size 38F! All my bras before this one have always been minimizers so what a change to have my girls supported with something as sexy as this balcony bra. This bra changes my whole figure and makes me feel proud of my assets instead of constantly trying to hide them through minimizers. If I had to voice one negative on it however it would be that no matter which white shirt I try to wear it under you can still end up seeing the bra underneath, which really is a bummer since that is the only reason that I went with a white bra in the first place... however it is not a big enough complaint for me to send it back or even give it a bad review because all in all I really do LOVE this bra!

Must Have By Julie from North Carolina
This is a beautiful bra. I am very happy with it. I think the cup size could be alittle bigger. I hope they come out with more sizes. Everyone must have this bra!

A "Must Have' Bra By g.g. from Florida
Every woman should own this beautiful bra. I ordered the white one and after seeing it on, I ordered the black also. It makes me feel so feminine without being uncomfortable.

Flattering, supportive, comfortable By Audrey from Florida
I love this bra. It has changed how I feel about my bust. It gives me lift, support, enhancement, and confidence. My husband has taken notice and likes what he sees.

Love the 6160 bras By Patricia from Norman, OK
Well made, fit nicely and made me feel sexy. Great product.

most comfortable and flattering bra By T.J. from TX
I have to add that this bra is the most comfortable and flattering I've ever owned and I do own quite a few. Looking forward to ordering from you again in the very near future and of course I'll tell my friends.

nice bra By Maria from Texas
This bra is nice, unfortunately it doesn't look very appealing to the more endowed woman. I am a 34DD I should stick with full coverage bras. I adjusted the straps seems to work well with shapewear. Still nice bra, comfortable and sexy.

WOW! By anonymous from unspecified
What a great fit!!!

Best Bra EVER! By Terry from Texas
I have been custom fit from several stores but nothing compares to this bra in comfort and fit. A great look - makes me feel even sexier when I wear this bra. Love it. Just placed another order for it.

Beautiful bra By Janice L. from NY
This beautiful item arrived so fast and perfectly packed in floral tissue. A++++

perfect fit bra By LTP from AZ
Fast delivery. Perfect packaging. Buy with confidence, I will again!!!

up and at'em By PA from Georgia
After I got used to this bra, I love it! It fits great. It actually fixed what gravity took...they are up where they need to be and out front. My husband thinks it is the best bra made!!!! I can't say enough good things about it. I hope you always keep this bra in stock.

Sexy silhouette but cups slightly large By Mito from Canada
For 90% of the bras I buy, I'm a 34D. However, to achieve the "vavava-voom" desired silhouette I would suggest going down 1 cup size granted it's easy to put in inserts as well to be on the safe side. This is not a seamless bra so there will be a bit of pattern showing through on thin fabrics.

Quick delivery & very nicely packed By R.P. from TX
The balconette cleavage bra was delivered quickly and packaged very nicely. The product was better than expected, in fact, my wife has ordered and received all three colors.
I would definately order from you again.

Wonderful bra!!! By Shawn from Loveland, OH US
I absolutely LOVE this bra. It is gorgeous, sexy and supportive. It gives a very nice rounded shape, and holds everything up well(ddd cup). The best part is, while it looks great, it is so comfortable! I can wear it all day long. So many pretty bras that support well are uncomfortable, but not this one! The band runs a little big, so I should have gotten a 36, but I still cant complain. I am very happy with this bra--If you are busty, try one!

Cup size small By C.H. from Connecticut
Very comfortable and seems supportive; however, the cup size is small. Hope they come out with a larger cup size so I can give this item 5 stars.

Sexy but inaccurate sizing By N J from New York
This bra is beautiful and appears supportive. The material feels nice on your skin and gives a statuesque look to you figure but the sizing is off. The material is so stretchy that as a 36 DDD I would need a 34 and the cup sizing is a little small therefore I would need the next size up which they do not carry. So unfortunately I will have to wait until my bust shrinks a size before I will truly be able to appreciate this item.

Beautiful and comfortable By L from Atlanta
I bought this bra because of sandy and JP's reviews and I have to agree with them. Your service is wonderful and your lingerie is too. This is a beautiful bra that makes me feel pretty and special and it's incredibly comfortable. I immediately ordered the same bra in another colour. Thank you! I look forward to shopping here often.

beautiful balconet bra By sandy from ma
i ordered a black balconet bra to replace one i had bought 10 yrs ago, and didn't want to let go. not only was your product beautiful, it is comfortable. it arrived within days of ordering, and was beautifully wrapped in tissue paper, with the company seal. nice touch, it made me feel special, as your lingerie does. it meets me highest expectations, i look forward to ordering more beautiful items.
thank you

Support and Freedom By D from Pleasant Grove, Alabama
This bra is wonderful! It offers support while giving a sensation of freedom that my "girls" so enjoy!

Great! By JP from Delaware
Very comfortable, although it took me a little while to get used to the "feel" of wearing this type of bra (now it's the only style I wear, definitely makes me feel very pretty)!! I have both the white & the beige and surprisingly the white one has held up better over time and washings. The beige developed some pilling around the edges, but the white still looks & feels new.
Bottom line: A+ comfort & A+ for sex appeal

Sexy & supportive bra By J.M. from New York
I love this bra! It keeps my "girls" well supported and makes me feel sexy.

Do you have questions about this bra?

- Contact us directly at 571-333-1071.
- Get answers from Lavinia by clicking Live Chat below.
- Use our FAQ. You'll find answers many questions about bras & panties.

Question:I would like to know if I wear a size 42b or c can I wear a 40 b or c and can you tell me is this bra smooth in back some bras bother my skin and do it have a lot of give?
Lavinia's Answer: Balcony bra style 6160 has band wings made of powernet fabric for a firmer fit and shaping. If you normally wear a 42B, I would recommend either trying this style in a 40C with a bra band extender OR if your skin is really sensitive, try a similar style balcony bra with bands made of soft micofiber.

Question:I love the Balcony Push-up bra (6160). In Australia I take 18DD or 18E ... can you please help me with sizing?
Lavinia's Answer: In response to your question, Australian bra size 18DD/E is equal to US size 40DD/E.

Question: Would this bra work with an extender, need 42DD?
Lavinia's Answer: Yes, balcony bra style 6160 will work with a bra band extender. If your normal size is 42DD, I would recommend trying a 40DDD/F.

Question: It looks like my size bra is sold out. Will you be restocking this shelf bra in white color, 40DDD/F size again?
Lavinia's Answer: Yes, we are restocking this shelf bra in all sizes and colors soon. Check back again in October, 2012.

Question: Is this bra padded?
Lavinia's Answer: Yes. This balcony bra has a uniform layer of thin foam padding for added support and shaping. It does not, however, have push up padding. The underlying cup construction, high center and wide-set straps of this bra style dramatically lift breasts up to create fullness on the top half of your breasts for a soft round silhouette without heavy padding.

Question: Is the balconnett seamless?
Lavinia's Answer: No. The cup has one vertical seam for better breast support. It's a fabulous bra for lift and support.

Question: Does this bra have push up?
Lavinia's Answer: The design of this bra - specifically its demi cups and a high underwire center - serves to lift breasts up for a "push-up" effect to create fullness on the top half of the breast. The cups have thin foam lining. This bra does NOT have push up padding or use inserts/cookies.

Question: Are the straps elastic?
Lavinia's Answer: Yes, the straps are elastic on the back, but padded in the front.

Question: Does this balcony bra run true to size?
Lavinia's Answer: Yes and no. Let me explain. The best fit (size) for this bra is somewhat dependent on your breast shape as balcony bras generally provide less coverage than demi-cup bras and effectively serve to lift breasts up to create fullness on the top half of the breast. For example, if you are a full 38C, meaning your breasts are naturally as round (full) on top as they are on the bottom half - not sloped (sagging on top, fuller on bottom) - than the added boost this bra creates may cause you to pop over the cup. If you fall into this category (full 38C), we recommend going up a cup size for this bra style (i.e., a 38D in this example). If your breasts sag, as breasts can commonly lose firmness and elasticity with age and life experience (e.g., pregnancy, breast feeding, weight loss, menopause...), your existing size should be fine.

Question: What exactly is the band size, is this the thickness of the bras band, the part that holds extra flesh if you have a meaty back, what exactly does it describe?
Lavinia's Answer: The band size is based on the measurement (circumference) of the rib cage - that is, the area starting just under the breasts going full circle around the back until you return to the front starting point. A few additional inches are then added to this measurement for the hook and eye closure. If needed, you can view our sizing chart to determine the size. The band size does not refer to the thickness of the band-this is generally driven by the style and support required for a band and cup size.

Question: Does the bra have a smooth enough texture like a t-shirt bra even though there is lace or is it very textured, that if worn with a t-shirt, the lace shows through?
Lavinia's Answer: If you wear this balcony bra under a t-shirt, the lace will not be very noticeable. While a seamless molded-cup/t-shirt bra provides the smoothest appearance, the lace on this bra is relatively fine and will not create a bumpy effect under your t-shirt like other lace bras. The key here is to have a proper fitting balcony bra. If you not have a proper fit, your breasts could pop over the cup; you will then be showing two extra bumps than planned.

Question: I am interested in buying this bra. Reading some of the reviews someone mentioned about actual size. I wanted to ask you. Does the cup size run small? Should I order a larger size?
Lavinia's Answer: While bra sizing among manufacturers can vary, I believe the comments are primarily due to the bra style. Generally speaking, not all woman wearing a 38DD/E bra have the same breast shape. Balcony bras, also known as shelf bras, generally provide less coverage than a demi-cup bra and effectively serve to lift breasts up and create fullness on the top half of the breast. If you are a full 38DD/E, meaning your breasts are as round (full) on top as they are on the bottom half - not sloped (more shallow on top, full on bottom) - than the added boost this bra creates may cause you to "pop" over the cup. If you fall into this category (full 38DD/E), I would recommend going up a cup size for this bra style. If you are more shallow on top, your existing size should be fine. This bra is one of my personal favorites and I wear my regular size. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Question: Does this have heavier padding in bottom of cup (bump pad) and/or graduated padding heavier in the bottom?
Lavinia's Answer: No, the bra cups have an even layer of thin foam padding. It is the underlying design/construction of the balcony bra style, which provides the added lift and cleavage.

Question: How many snaps are on the back (36DD size bra); thin 1 or 2 snaps or wide 3 or 4 snaps? Are the shoulder straps adjustable?
Lavinia's Answer: The back closure of the 36DD balcony bra has three columns and three rows of hooks. Yes, the shoulder straps are adjustable.
