French to English translations [PRO] / fashion, lingerie
French term or phrase:soutien-gorge corbeille
lingerie - this specific design of bra, as opposed to balconnet, ampliforme, etc. Possibly 'demi-cup' or 'half-cup uplift'?? Thanks.
Explanation: I translated a French clothing catalogue a couple of years ago and this word caused problems even then! We agreed on 'half-cup underwired bra'. Your 'half-cup uplift' option also sounds OK.
