These are your classic regular shape and length underwire suitable for most standard day wear bra patterns. This wire is a good place to start when making bras because it is most common shape found in RTW bras. This style comes in two lengths the R1 (this listing) or the R2 which is 10mm shorter but the same round shape.
Check out our vertical wires and our RHF1 High Front wires also. We are expanding our line of underwires to help you meet all your fitting needs since no two pair of breasts are exactly right and we understand WHY you make bras.
Due to COVID-19 and hygiene reasons underwires are not returnable. Please refer to underwire sizing charts.
