Want to know more about organic cotton and natural fiber bras? In this video series, we discuss bra sizing and fit, different bra styles and what features to look for in a natural fiber or fully organic cotton bra.
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.

Episode 5 looks at No Wire Bras with modesty padding. No Wire Padded Bras are our most requested bra style. They are the hardest bras to find in organic and natural fabrics, but we do have a few gems. There are basically two types of No Wire Padded Bras, those with integrated padding sewn directly into the cups, and those with removable pads that sit inside “pockets” sewn into the bra. The integrated padding kind tend to have better shaping while the removable padded kind are a bit more versatile, allowing you to wear the bra without the pads when they aren’t needed. This is a particularly nice weekday/weekend bra option.
Unfortunately all of the No Wire Padded Bras we carry have either nylon or polyester foam as their inside padding. We’ve actually discussed this back in 2014 in the post, The Elusive No Wire Padded Bra. While we have found more options in the No Wire Padded category, the basic premise of that post, bras can have eco-padding and underwire or conventional padding and no wire, remains true today.
