This is maybe my most use wire from my collection- it’s clear that I really love this wire! The Bliss is one of my wires that starts to get a little more specific into body types and fit- without being too specialty. The Bliss, also known as a ‘vertical’ style of wire- is a taller and narrower wire. I named this wire Bliss for the obvious reason that it is amazing- but also it was inspiration from a friend 🙂

So here are the specs for this wire:
This wire is a tall and narrow wire. It’s similar in overall length and height to the Round wire, but with a more narrow ‘U’ shape. It’s great for bra styles with a very narrow bridge.
BEST FIT FOR:
This wire is designed for people who have more of a ‘Tall Oval’ shape, most commonly it’s best for people who have a medium to large cup size, and a smaller rib cage, with very little space between their breasts. This wire helps to bridge the bridge of your bra back to the chest wall, because they can sit closer together.
There are no patterns that are designed specifically for this wire, but it’s a very similar overall length to the Round wire, so you could easily swap out your wires- or if you are working with a pattern designed for the Orange wire (which is a little shorter at the centre front) you can always raise the centre front to accommodate this wire.
I’ve used this wire so many times! It’s clear that it’s a favourite for me!
Most recently I used it in my Bamboo Foam Bras – you can see that they give a beautiful shape- and are a little more narrow at the bridge.
Do you love the Bliss Wire as much as I do? What have you made with it?
I love to hear from you!
