Our Vertical Underwire Metal Bra Underwires are made from premium gauge metal, to resist twisting. These Metal Bra Underwires are shaped differently, to push the breast forward. Customers with either an “Omega shape” or flaccid, close-set breasts, often choose these underwires.
If in doubt about the size, please refer to the Bra-Makers Supply Underwire Charts page, where you can view all of our underwire styles. We also have a size chart available for each style, which can be printed out to the actual size. Wire lengths in both inches and centimetres are shown. You can then determine which style and size you need.
Bra-Makers Supply have published a great blog of Must-Know Information for underwires to help you calculate the correct wire size. Click here to open the blog in a new page.
If you have a wire from an old bra that fits you well, there is also a chart that you can print off at 100% to check the equivalent wire size. Click here to open the pdf in a new page.
