SHAPE UP, DON’T SHIP OUT! DRESS TO THE NINES WITH UNDERWIRED BRAS

An Underwired Bra is one of those products that continue to undergo scrutiny even decades after its introduction. While rumors about its potential ill-effects are aplenty, we at Shyaway want to cut this (yes, we said it !) ‘wire’ some slack.

THE SAGA OF UNDERWIRES

Marie Tucek, a lady from New York came up with the precursor to underwired bras in the year 1893. The patent for the underwired bra as we know it today was granted to Ms. Helene Pons after 38 years, in 1931. A lot of patents for different variants followed. Even with the scientists and fashion experts blowing hot and cold about the underwires, the demand for these gorgeous bras has been seeing a steady rise – so much so that you can even find Nursing Bras and Sports Bras fitted with underwires!

THE MAKING

Made mostly of metal, underwires could either be semi-circular or they could be longer on the side near the armhole, it depends entirely on the design of the Bra. The ends of the underwire are coated with either plastic or nylon to avoid sharp edges that could poke through the casing.

BENEFITS OF AN UNDERWIRE BRA

  • Additional support
  • When used in padded bras, it beautifully lifts and shapes your breasts
  • The underwire is a boon for larger breast sizes, as underwired bras contour and also support the volume of bigger bust.

The underwire is an element that can be added to almost any type of bra. Here are some you’ll find on our website.

CARING FOR UNDERWIRED BRAS

Use mild, liquid detergent and hand wash your underwired bras. By all means, avoid tossing them into a machine with the other clothes. Follow the wash care instructions on the product label. If you want to machine-wash, make sure you place the underwired bras in a bra wash bag and only use the gentle cycle to wash your intimates.

DON’T SHILLY-SHALLY. JUST BUY ONE!

The underwired bra will do you NO HARM! Ever since Dressed to Kill hit the bookstands claiming that underwires interfere with lymphatic drainage and cause harm to breast tissue, scientists and researchers from across the globe began to study bras extensively. The conclusion – there is no evident co-relation between underwires and breast damage. So the case that underwires are harmful has been proved illogical and baseless.
