Abstract

See full text

A brassiere has a pair of cups each provided with a respective underwire assembly each having inner and outer U-shaped hard underwire portions extending substantially parallel to each other below a respective cup of the brassiere, joined together at ends, and separated by an arcuate slot between the ends. The underwire formed by the two portions is upwardly arcuately concave so as to conform to the contour of a breast in the cup, and is also horizontally arcuately concave so as to conform to the contour of the chest of a wearer of the brassiere. The underwire is embedded in a soft plastic body having an apron along a concave side of the body lying at an angle to the hard underwire portions so that the body and the underwire form a pocket receiving a breast of the wearer in the cup.
