Bras have personalities too!

personality-independent

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.

Underwired Bras: Yay or Nay?

Print

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.
