|Beyond seamless cups, which are molded from one piece of fabric, bras can be designed to be smoothing all over. Seamless sides help create a smooth look as do features like leotard backs, which help eliminate bulges and back fat. Bras with seamless cups come in virtually all styles, including push-up bras, balconets, strapless, minimizer bras, longlines, front-close and wire-free. While some styles are completely seamless including sides, backs and underband, others feature seamless cups, with the rest of the bra made in more traditional constructions. Choose the styles that work best with your wardrobe. |
Modern high-tech fibers, like stretch nylon, simplex and microfiber allow for cups that are lightweight, completely seamless and yet molded for shaping and modesty. This also allows for back and side construction with stretch and support without visible bumps or bulges. Seamless, smoothing bras are a wardrobe essential, especially in warmer weather under close-fitting tees and tanks or under clingy knits.
