Welcome to the Contour Cups section of the Bra
Glossary. In this section, you can learn more about bras.
: Contour cups are used in bras to help hold their shape, even when the
bra is not being worn. This type of bra cup has an underwire and a foam
lining molded into a specific shape (foam or some other type of material).
Contour cups are beneficial for women that are wishing to obtain a more
sculpted silhouette. The contour cups offer the appearance of a
symmetrical breast shape. Although the contour cup has padding, it is not
typically worn for the sole purpose of padding (increasing the size
appearance) of the chest. The concept of the contour bra is to add
definition and a smooth shape to the breast to help eliminate uneven
appearance from nipple contours etc.
