Imported Womens and Ladies Bras and Undergarmentsin Pakistan
Brassieres, or women's bras as we know them today are a form of undergarments that have been around since the early 20th century. Prior to the 20th century, however, women used undergarments designed to lift, support and separate their bust since as early as 2000 BC. From the 16th century to the 19th century, the corset was the primary ladies undergarment used by women to shape their waist and lift their bust.
In the late 19th century, ladies bras began to replace the corset as the most widely used form of bust support. The first women bras were variations of the corset that split it into a girdle-like restraining device for the lower torso and the top portion into a cup like structure suspended from the shoulder by shoulder straps.
The first ladies bra was created by a 19 year old New York socialite around 1910. The young socialite was large chested and found that the whalebone in her corsets visibly poked out around the plunging neckline of her dresses and from under the fabric. Together with her maid, the socialite fashioned two silk handkerchiefs together with ribbon and cord and quickly caught the attention of her family and friends who requested she make more of the new device. It wasn't until the early 1930s, however, that bras were mass produced on a large commercial scale as a key undergarment.

Push up bras
The push up bra is a fashion bra that creates the appearance of increased cleavage. Push up bras use angled cups that contain padding to push the breasts inwards and upwards towards the centre of the chest. The first push up bra ever made was the ever so popular Wonderbra. This undergarment hit the market by storm in the Western countries when it was released. It gained huge popularity as it enhanced a women’s bust which some women seek to achieve in the Western countries. Since then, the push up bra has now become a standard undergarment in many ladies’ wardrobe in the West.
The plunge bra allows for lower, increased cleavage and is sometimes known as U-plunge. The shoulder straps on a plunge bra are usually set widely apart and it is designed with angled cups and an open, lowered centre gore. Plunge bras are usually worn with outfits that have a deep or plunging neckline. Unlike push up bras, plunge bras are generally not as heavily padded.
The bandeau bra or tube bra is a simple band of stretchy material that is worn across the byst. It is usually strapless and is suitable for small busts. They can sometimes have built in cups but often provide little support or shaping.
Underwire bras feature a thin semi-circular strip of rigid material to help provide additional support for the breasts. The wire is usually made of either metal or plastic and is sewn into the bra fabric and under each cup.
Strapless bras rely on an extra wide band for bust support and are typically worn with bare shoulder garments such as strapless dresses and tops. In order to provide breast support without straps, strapless bras have a longer underwire, added padding and can have boning or shaping panels.
