Extra Long Underwire Metal Bra Underwires
Our Extra Long Underwire Metal Bra Underwires are made from premium gauge metal, to resist twisting. These Metal Bra Underwires are 5/8″ longer in the front only than our Long Underwires. Use these Underwires when you require more front height. Customers with cups over size E will find this length more satisfactory than the Long Underwires. Some of the Pin-up Girls patterns such as the Classic, Linda and Shelley use Extra Long Underwires. The Extra Long Underwires are also used when making strapless bras, as they are higher in the front.
If in doubt about the size, please refer to our Underwire Charts page, where you can view all of our underwire styles. We also have a size chart available for each style, which can be printed out to the actual size. Wire lengths in both inches and centimetres are shown. You can then determine which style and size you need.
For those new to custom bra-making, we offer a complete size set of all 15 sizes. We package one pair of each size, for you to use as a reference. This allows you to try out different sizes, whether for yourself or your clients. A great way to find out the correct size. No more guesswork! Not exactly sure which size to buy?
