Going hand-in-hand with minimizing, an underwire construction will help shape and support breasts. While minimizer bras reduce the projection of breasts by redistributing breast tissue towards the sides, an underwire provides support. Minimizer bras with underwires are available in dozens of styles, from the everyday t-shirt bras to lacy and embroidered designs.
Underwires today are made of a variety of materials-- metal, coated metal, flexible plastic or molded plastic. Some underwires are layered between fabric for extra comfort. The underwire, while lifting and shaping, also helps mitigate the flattened appearance that some minimizers can cause. In a minimizer underwire bra, the wires should lay flat against your sternum--never on breast tissue.
