Temperatures are finally dropping. But there’s still a little time left to flaunt some décolletage before we’re all wrapping up in scarves and polo necks.
The best bra to wear with a V-shaped neckline is, of course, a plunge bra. This bra style has an unusually low center-front so that it won’t show under a low V neckline. This shape is created by having underwires that are more J than U-shaped. Take a look at the demi-cup and plunge versions of the bra below for easy comparison:

Worried that a plunge bra will be too ‘booby’? Then it’s worth knowing that plunge bras come in different types. Push-up plunges are designed for maximum cleavage. But an unlined or lightly lined plunge bra shows a bit of your chest, without ‘boosting’ it.
Below are 20 of my favorite plunge bras, ranging from some smooth and simple styles through lacy looks. They cover a range of budgets, plus a wide range of sizes. Here are options for small backs, plus sizes, small busts, full busts, and everything in between!
