Minimizer bras are made in balconette and full-cup styles, and they are meant to pull the bust tighter against the chest to create a more subtle silhouette under clothing. Minimizer cups usually come with a two- or three-part cup construction, but can also be made in a seamless non-padded version. Minimizers with seams can often be recognized by a diagonal seam going across the cup, dividing it into two sections. Materials used in minimizer bras are sturdy to ensure the pulling effect of the bra. This bra style is especially convenient under clothing which is designed more snugly in the bust area.
