What is an Underwire?

An underwire is essentially the wire that sits under your bust providing you with support and shape. It is a great feature to have on a swimsuit and it is sure to shape you well. It is the only way to get proper bust lift with your swimsuit as it works with adjustable straps to achieve your preferred support and lift.

How Should an Underwire Fit?

An underwire should fit the the width of each breast without digging in or gaping. the wire should sit flat against your body, under the breast. If your swimsuit has a back closure, it should sit straight across your mid back when done up. If it rides up, your back fitting is too big and if it digs in, you need a larger size. 

Adjustable straps will help you achieve lift and support. Adjust them so that your bust sits in the cups without gaping or digging in. Breasts should be cradled by the underwire and fit the cups perfectly.

Benefits of Underwire

An underwire is a great support for women with a bigger bust. As an underwire is covered by soft fabric, essentially your bust will fill out the swimsuit rather than trying to fit into it. You can find a lot of comfort and support in an underwire within your swimsuit.

An underwire swimsuit also offers a lot of support in regards to holding your bust up. If you have a bigger bust, having an underwire will perk your bust up and shape you well. It will ensure that your bust has more of a natural shape rather than the shape the moulded cups give you.

Shelf Bra

An alternative to an underwire is a shelf bra. A shelf bra is a supportive elastic strap that sits under the bust. These are great if you are looking for a softer fit and shape. Many women prefer the feel of a wire free swimsuit with a multifit option. If you don't need lift and your bust sits comfortably without underwire support, a shelf bra can give you more options for swimsuit styles.
