Learn more about organic cotton, natural and sustainably produced bras. In this 10-part video series, we discuss bra fit, seaming, styles and features.
Episode 7 takes a quick look at Underwire Bras without padding. Underwire bras overall tend to give you more support than no wire bras, and the underwire gives a distinct shaping. The shape of an underwire bra without padding can be quite different than a similar style with padding. The padding tends to mask your own natural breast shape, while the underwire without the padding will highlight your personal shape. The seam design, whether vertical, horizontal or seamless, has a much bigger impact on your overall look when wearing an underwire bra without padding. So seam style is definitely something you’ll want to test to see what works best for your particular body and shape.
If you’re concerned about any connections between underwires and breast cancer, please check out last weeks post on Padded Underwire Bras. We address that issue both in the description and in more detail in the video.

Some of things to consider when picking up a Padded Underwire Bra is the bra shape – demi versus full coverage; the bra seaming – vertical, horizontal or seamless; and padding material – polyester foam versus cotton foam. Many non-organic bras also come with varying padding thickness. However, we have not found that to be the case in organic padded bras. All of the padded bras we carry have light, i.e. fairly thin padding designed for modesty rather than volume enhancement.
