Next to the Orange wire, this would be my second most ‘standard/average’ style of wire. This wire is a little higher at the centre front, which give a bit more full coverage for those who like to stay secure! This wire was named for the shape- pretty straight forward- it’s a nice round shape, and is great for people who have that more round breast type- but can be a bit flexible to suit different bodies too. I’ve used this wire lots before, and it’s pretty common 🙂

I think it’s fair to say that this underwire is the most ‘standard’ or ‘average’ underwire that I have in my collection. I actually named this wire after Norma of Orange Lingerie, because she has two beautiful bra patterns (the Marlborough and the Boylston) that both use this wire! At the time that she came out with her patterns, there weren’t many that had a RTW gorgeous style and it was really inspiring to see them- so I named these after her 🙂

How To Fit Your Underwire …and other underwire mysteries

Hi All!

I’m starting off this month with a good overview of underwires and how to find your size- Let’s jump right in!

 

To start off- let’s talk a little bit about underwires and why we use them.

Underwires are designed to help distribute the weight of your breast into the band of your bra, giving you more support and lift. They also help to give more shaping to your breasts and keep them out of your armpits.

A properly fitted underwire should help with support, lift, and shaping – but it should not pinch, poke, dig in or generally be uncomfortable.
