Bra FAQ

Question 1) Are wireless bras less supportive than bras with wires?
Answer 1) My best supporting bra, in stock, is a non underwire sports bra…..the wired bras will give you shape and more definition. A wired bra will give the customer a fit under the whole breast and therefore shapes the figure and breast tissue nicer. A Proper fit w/ proper fabrics / lace dictate the support and control.

Question 2) What type of bras should a man wear; underwire or regular bra?
Answer 2) Men usually wear a non underwire as there 1st bra. Men are always in the wrong bra unless they see a specialist. If the man has a foam or silicone breast form, the wire is a better fit w/ the forms. We have a great bra for dressers.

Question 3) What are the best wireless cotton bras?
Answer 3) 100% cotton bras are hard to come by. They are made and we have some. Women are allergic to synthetics, so cotton is important..Cotton is a good choice in warmer climates. My best wireless bra is a post surgery front closure. Also used as a sleeping bra for the cup sizes H, I, J, K, L

Question 4) Which is better: an underwired bra or a non-wired bra?
Answer 4) A non underwire bra compresses the breast tissue. Pushes the tissue out and under the arm area. The underwire bra places a wire correctly under the circumference of each breast. Offers more shapeliness to the figure. The older and or very large breasted customer tend to wear a non underwire.

Question 7) Which kind of bra is best for large breasts?
Answer 7) One that fits of course. It can be a wire or non-underwire. The wired bra is not available in all sizes. They stop with the wire bras @ 46 – 48 band sizes. Larger size woman usually know if they want a wire or not.

Question 10) Which bra is good, padded or non-padded?
Answer 10) Padded is used loosely by customers. Some want a light pad to cover the nipple so it is not showing or then there is the real padded bra with a built in pad or a pocket which will allow you to place a pad in the pocket. Padded can give you a push up effect in some cases and show the breast tissue above the top of the bras cup.
