Abstract

The goal of this investigation is to study bra fit and comfort according to different sizes, cup seaming techniques, and locations within the bra structure. Two participants were invited, whose breast sizes are linked together through sister sizes (34C and 32D). Based on common bra production methods, three basic style bra prototypes were developed with different cup seaming techniques; horizontal, vertical, and combined seams. These prototypes were used to assess bra fit and comfort on each participant at 8 different locations. Fit and comfort were evaluated based on the pressure being exerted by the bra. The pressure data was collected using the Novel Pliance X Expert System (Munich, Germany).
