Made for You

The way a bra is cut, assembled and sewn has a big impact on how it fits your unique shape. In this section we'll dissect each part that goes into a bra and explain its function and how it affects your bra fit.

The Multi-Part Cups


There are several seamed cup variations.

  • Horizontal seams - This seam design tends to give a more projected and slightly conical shape to the cup.
  • Vertical center seams - More commonly found in demi or balconette cup shapes, the vertical center seam is very supportive and gives an uplifting effect to the breasts.
  • Transversal seams - This seam type is arched or curved in shape, and thus gives a more rounded shape to the breast tissue while also being very supportive.
  • Angled Seams - This seam type provides support, centering and lift to the breasts. And the angled design (generally starting low in the center and getting higher at the sides) also gives a very flattering appearance.

More on Support Panels/Slings:

Women with a C cup size and larger can benefit from a bra with support panels or slings – especially if their breasts are pendulous, are large or fall to the sides. In these cases especially, panels can lift, center and support the breasts for a better shape and profile.
