To me bras have always been more than just bras. I see personalities in each bra that I design, and picture a certain type of woman wearing each bra. As I think of the bra design, an image of a woman who would wear it, always comes to mind. I hope you see yourself in one of the personas that I associate with my Buttercups bras, in this unusual personality series. I think I’ll start the series with the one I associate most with.

Every woman, at some point in her life or perhaps daily, has wondered while wearing an underwired bra, is this really necessary? We can confidently say, yes it is! Underwired bras are definitely better for support and overall control over your chest than soft cup bras are.
I hear endless complaints about how an underwired bra feel like B-prison. Well, they don’t have to! The first thing you need to do is find your correct size. Wearing the right sized underwired bra will make all the difference in how you feel in it during the day. A major point to keep in mind is the quality of underwire of the bra.

At Buttercups, I ensure we use the most flexible yet strong wires, to ensure comfort and great support. (more…)
