Bras can be categorized by various styles or other characteristics that make them worth buying. You’re probably aware of all different styles. This guide will address different types of women’s inner wear bras.
Under wired bras have a wire made from a rigid material in the underside of the bra cup. It is usually made from plastic or metal. However, the rigidity of the wire can cause bras to become uncomfortable with time. Also, once the wire sticks out of the fabric, it will have to be replaced.
Wire free bras, or soft cup bras, come without under wire but usually have a wider band of fabric underneath the cups to prevent spillage. These are often considered more comfortable than under wire bras but May not offer the same amount of support.
