Acquiring Underwires
for Bras and Corsets

Underwires can be used with conventional bra and some variations of corsets. The video below shows how to estimate underwire size. I have also prepared a special PDF file that shows the sizes of underwire available from different suppliers

I recommend that you order additional underwires a size larger and a size smaller so that you can verify you have the most appropriate size for your body. Most women have one breast a different size from the other. By ordering the different sizes, you can wear test the underwires until you find the best size.
