When it comes to support, underwire bras are the best by far. Underwire bras enhance, uplift and support your breasts. If you are big breasted it is far more important to have the best support possible to lift up and hold the girls. These little curved wires in the undersides of bra cups really do support and lift you.

For underwires to work properly, you need to have the correct fit. The underwires need to fully encircle your breasts. It needs to be around the tissue, not on top. If you have any poking or pinching, you are wearing the wrong size bra. To ensure the correct fit, get yourself fitted or at least self measure. Again, check that it surrounds the breast. Make sure there is no spillage. See that the center gore in the front lays flat against the chest.

Not all wires are created equal. Most women like plastic coded metal. They also like flexible wires. The plastic wires help strengthen the wires and are less sharp. The flexibility helps to soften the underwire, too.

When trying on a bra, move around a lot. Jump up and down or run in place. You need to make sure that the wires are not poking or pinching. If you jiggle a lot, you are already not choosing a bra with adequate support. Pick a bra with limited movement and comfortable underwires. If you dig in, you will not dig this bra.

Make sure you have a supportive band and comfort straps. The band is crucial to support in addition to the underwires. It is best with 3 to 4 hook and eye closures and flexible without restricting or leaving marks. The straps should be wide to increase comfort level. The support comes from the underwire and band not the straps. The straps are there to help keep the bra in place. They should not dig in. You want to feel your best every time you wear a bra.

Underwires look better on than soft cup bras. They enhance the shape of your breast and your outfit. The cups stay formed and most have a nice molded shape. Plus, underwires come in a greater variety of styles. Bras such as lingerie bras, push up bras, and the bustier are mainly in underwire. You also have a greater color variety of underwire styles out there. Make sure that your underwire style bra matches your outfit. If you are wearing a low cut dress, use an underwire plunge bra. If you are wearing a strapless gown, use an underwire strapless bra. Fuller cup bras do not work for lower cut or backless outfits. Pay attention and enhance your look.

Take good care of your underwire bras and replace them every six months. Bras are not meant to last forever. The wires get bent out of shape. The surrounding material wears out allowing wires to poke through. The elastic wears out. Fortunately, you can help make your bras last longer by just a few simple steps. Wash your bras by hand. Let them air dry on a flat surface. If you must wash them, use a lingerie bag, cold water, and non harsh chemicals. If you insist on a dryer, keep it at a low temperature. Plus, use a small load of laundry.

Underwire bras, like any bras, are not equal. Make sure to get fitted. Check to see if they encompass your breasts and lay flat against your chest without spillage. Pay attention to the wires. Make sure they are flexible with plastic coding. Know your size and move around when trying on a bra. Remember a bra is meant to enhance your outfit. Buy a variety of styles. Finally, take good care of your lingerie. Hand wash and dry. Underwire bras are you friend. They enhance, uplift, and support you. When it comes to support and fashion, underwire bras are the best on the market.
