What's the difference & which one gives you the most boost? I'm a 36DD so need something with quite a bit of support!

not sure about the different names, freya do good bras for that purpose, as do gossard, I would try them on before buying to see which bra gives me the best results

I'm a 38DD and i have quite a heavy bust - i find that a balcony bra works wonders! grin

Balcony is more of a push up from underneath (but keeping the boobs quite seperate) whereas a plunge bra tends to squash them together for a full-on wonderbra effect. Push up could mean either of these.

I personally prefer a balcony/balconette but then I'm fairly busty and I think the squished together effect looks obscene on me! Might look good on a less busty lady though...

I to can look a bit "lets roll in the hay my lurvelly" with a plunge.

However i find that too high a balcony gives me somewhere to rest my cup of tea!
