What is a soft cup bra?

A soft cup bra, usually a wire-free bra or wireless bra, is a type of bra that’s designed without underwires or a rigid structure. Instead of relying on wires for support, these bras use soft, flexible materials to provide comfort and gentle shaping. Soft cup bras are perfect for those looking for a comfortable fit that’s easy to wear.

Understanding a soft cup bra

Seamless design

Our soft cup bras often have seamless cups, which means there are no seams or stitching lines that could chafe or irritate the skin. This is important if you want a smooth and comfortable fit, especially after surgery.

Natural shape

Soft cup bras are designed to offer a natural shape rather than pushing or lifting your bust in an exaggerated way. This feature helps you feel more like yourself and keeps your fit feeling comfortable throughout the day.

Breathable fabrics

We use breathable and high-quality materials in our soft cup bras, meaning they’re gentle on the skin and help to regulate your body temperature. This ensures you’re comfortable throughout the day, wherever you’re going, whatever you’re doing and whatever’s going on with the weather.

Why soft cup bras are ideal for mastectomy patients

  • Gentle on surgical scars: After mastectomy surgery, the chest area can be tender and scarred. Soft cup bras provide gentle support and avoid any unnecessary pressure on these sensitive areas.
  • Comfort and confidence: Comfort is essential, but confidence is equally important. Soft cup bras help you feel good about yourself, after undergoing such a significant life change.
  • Versatility: Soft cup bras come in a variety of styles and designs, so you can choose the one that suits your personal preferences. Whether it's a sports bra, a lace-trimmed bralette, or an everyday t-shirt bra, there's a soft cup option for every occasion.
