an undergarment worn by women to support their breasts
Not much new to tell the ladies about Bras but there are basically three types. Demi Cup - The Demi Bra usually covers only the lower portion of the breasts leaving the nipples exposed yet providing upward support and giving that sexy braless look. Half Cup Bra - A bra with "Half Cup" that just covers the nipples leaving only the upper portions of the breast revealed. Push Up Bra - Usually a full cup bra providing and upward lift and the appearance of more cleavage. There is also what is known as the Quarter Cup Bra, leaving the full breast exposed with only a "shelf" for support. All of the bras mentioned can have some form of push up padding. Metal wires under the cups, known as "Underwire Support", can also be found on any of the bras described here.
A woman's foundational garment that shapes and supports the bust. From the term brassiere, an old French word for upper arm, the first modern-day bra was fashioned in the early 1900's out of handkerchiefs and ribbon by New York socialite Mary Phelps Jacob, who created the garment in opposition to the whalebone corset.
