Wire Free & Soft Cup Bras
Wire-free bras have come a long way. They used to be considered grandma bras, but now they’re much more than that and they offer ample support for your girls. Wire free bras have soft molded cups that provide awesome lift without an uncomfortable wire. Some have padding and others do not. There is a huge variety of wire-free bras including contour bras, sports bras, maternity bras, nursing bras, mastectomy bras and others. Contour bras offer a smoothing, seamless shape with soft (usually padded) cups. Sports bras often fall into the wire-free bra category due to their soft cup structure. Sports bras provide ample support for your breasts while you exercise. They’re designed with wider straps and supportive cups to reduce the bounce impact to your breasts. Many of these styles offer maximum control, but are also available for low impact activities. Maternity bras and nursing bras are usually wire-free as well. These bras are an excellent choice for the expecting mom and the new mom that is nursing her newborn. They tend to be constructed of soft microfibers or cottons and will have soft cups, adjustable straps and easy snaps for convenient nursing access. Certain styles have foam-lined cups to prevent show-through and others are unlined. Mastectomy bras are almost always wire-free. The soft cups in these post-surgery bras provide great shape and support with the use of a prosthesis. There are other soft cup bras that are simply just for aesthetically pleasing purposes. While they may offer great support, they’re primary purpose is to look sexy and be “5 minute wear”. These styles are usually manufactured from lace and trimmed with embellishments. They can be a halter style or triangle bra style. Brands like Elle Macpherson Intimates, DKNY, Hanky Panky, Lunaire, Hanro, SPANX, Wacoal and Chantelle design fabulous fitting wire-free bras that will lift, smooth and shape your girls beautifully.
