To Seam or Not to Seam?
Posted by on
Did you ever wonder why some of the seamless, molded cup bras look so great on models but just don't quite fit your body? This post will talk about some of the differences between a seamed cup and a seamless bra and which style might be the best option for your breasts.
Molded, seamless cups are a great choice for a smooth shape, masking protruding nipples, and perking up a saggy bust since the breast fits into the molded cup. They're a great choice for a t-shirt or lighter top because the single piece of fabric doesn't show through. Women with tender skin or nipples prefer this style of bra as well, because the smooth material feels so nice.
Women who have uneven breasts tend to find seamless cups aren't a great choice because in order to get the bra to fit their larger breast, they're left with some gaping on the smaller breast. Once women do find a seamless cup bra that works for them, they understand the magic of these uplifting, soft undergarments.
Seamed cup bras, often called multi-part cups, are a wonderful option for women with a very large bust, or for women who just have trouble finding a seamless bra that fits. A seamless cup with underwire can restrict the movement of the cup, which means your breasts are either the shape of the cup as it exists, or they aren't. When you add seams, the cup has the ability to conform to your breast shape.
Seams can help to lift, separate, and support your bust, even in styles with less coverage. Seamed bras with side support can push the breast tissue forward and really give the effect of a lighter profile. Women with large cup sizes find they are supported, even without underwire.
