A underwire bra mainly comprises an underwire bra cup, in connection
with the properly cut elastic cloth as the lining sewed onto the
back side of the bra, and further an obverse elastic cloth with
the same contour and configuration fully covers the lining and the
bra cup, and forms a whole piece bra with a back piece extended
from the lining and the bra cup by coupling the sewing seam at the
upper edge such that it completely adopts a woman's bust and provides
an underwire bra with seamless look, but it still retains the reliability
of lifting and supporting a woman's breast. Such structure simplifies
the manufacture, lowers the cost, and enhances the production efficiency.
What is claimed is:
1. An improved bra, comprising: a plurality of underwire bra cups;
a lining having a cut elastic cloth sewed on a back side of the
bra; an obverse elastic cloth having a contour and configuration
of the bra and completely covering the lining and the underwire
bra cups; and a back piece extending from the lining and the obverse
cloth to form said bra, such that the bra fully adopts a woman's
bust and provides a seamless look.
2. The improved bra as claimed in claim 1 wherein a lower edge
of the obverse cloth has a whole-piece elastic segment, which is
larger than the lining.
3. The improved bra as claimed in claim 1 wherein the lining includes
a non-elastic net piece as an isolating filling between the bra
cups to keep a constant distance between the bra cups.
4. The improved bra as claimed in claim 1 wherein the obverse
elastic cloth is an elastic knitted cloth.
5. The improved bra as claimed in claim 1 wherein a wire in the
bra cups is removable.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
1. Field of the Invention
The present invention relates to an improved underwire bra, more
particularly to a bra having two bra cups directly deposed on the
lining, and the elastic cloth having the same contour and configuration
as the bra covers the lining and the bra cups, and a whole-piece
single-edge sewing is performed at the edge of the top section of
the bra. Such bra structure is a whole-piece with which the wire
is not exposed. In addition to its naturally showing the beauty
of brassiere, it also can save the manufacturing cost and increase
the production rate and the comfort of wearing, and particularly
it features an economic way of production and has the effect of
perfect fit without binding.
2. Description of the Prior Art
The female brassiere is an important item that decorates the shape
of a woman's bust; and it does not only allow the growing breasts
to develop properly by completely holding the breasts, but it also
can avoid the external expansion and of the breast, and provide
a bra for adults to show the erecting breast and the ditch of the
bust. Therefore it is a daily necessity for women for years. Due
to the influence of fashions, transparent, low-cut, and curve exposed
brassiere generally embarrasses the users. The latest model of the
brassiere has a big change in its design, and that is to hide the
wire to provide an unaccentuated look and allow the user to go with
the fashion. However, the conventional underwire bras have a structure
as shown in FIGS. 1 and 2 and they generally have wire 11 along
the periphery of the bra cup 12 and a piece of cloth 13 in the
front being formed into a lining 1 and such lining 2 having a shoulder
strap 21 and a piece of cloth 22 at the back to go with the obverse
cloth 2 that are sewed along their periphery S. Such structure accomplishes
a bra model that hides the wire 11 of the bra. Please refer to FIG.
2 for its detailed structure and shape. Since the manufacture of
such bra uses the method of sewing S the whole periphery, therefore
its manufacturing is more complicate, which does not only affect
the production efficiency and production value, but it also increases
the cost for the complicate sewing. Therefore, products of this
sort usually are expensive, and not economic for the daily usage.
In addition, the formation of the whole-piece bra has seams for
the coupling of the back piece 22 and it does not offer a perfect
fit for the curve, and it loses the beauty. Such uneven seams also
generate an uncomfortable feeling when contacted with the user's
skin. Therefore, it is necessary to improve the conventional bras.
In view of the shortcomings and inconvenience of the prior art
mentioned above, which are the subjects of improvements for a long
time, hence the inventor of the present invention based on years
of experience accumulated from the engagement in the related industry
conducted extensive research to resolve the foregoing shortcomings
and invented the present invention.
Therefore, the primary objective of the present invention is to
provide an improved underwire bra particularly having two bra cups
directly deposed on the lining, and the elastic cloth having the
same contour and configuration as the bra covers the lining and
the bra cups, and a whole-piece single-edge sewing is performed
at the edge of the top section of the bra. Such bra structure is
a whole-piece with which the wire is not exposed. In addition to
its naturally showing the beauty of brassiere, it also can save
the manufacturing cost and increase the production rate and the
comfort of wearing, and particularly it features an economic way
of production and has the effect of perfect fit without binding.
Another objective of the present invention is to provide an underwire
bra that completely has no seam because the bra cups and the front
piece are extended directly to a back piece and needs no coupling.
It gives a very comfortable feeling when wearing, and a perfect
fit for the curve provides an artistic look.
Another objective of the present invention is to restrict and prevent
the turning over of the obverse cloth by having a strongly elastic
segment of appropriate width extended at the lower edge of the obverse
cloth, and it also reliably binds but creates no stress for reinforcing
Another further objective of the present invention is to provide
an underwire bra that can fully lift and support a woman's breast
and prevent any outward expansion or downcast by using non-elastic
steel plates as the isolating filling between the bra cups in order
to ensure the constant distance between bra cups.
To make it easier for our examiner to understand the objective
of the invention, structure, innovative features, and performance,
we use a preferred embodiment together with the attached drawings
for the detailed description of the invention.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
Please refer to FIGS. 3 and 4. The underwire bra of the present
invention mainly comprises a bra cup 32 having a wire 31 attached
to it, and together with a piece of properly cut elastic cloth to
couple with a lining 3 at the backside of the bra, and both lateral
sides are extended to a back piece 34 as a whole piece. A non-elastic
net piece 35 is deposed between the bra cups, and a piece of obverse
cloth 4 having the same contour and configuration as the bra, and
that is the curved cloth formed (see FIG. 3) completely covers the
whole lining 3 and the bra cups 32. By the single-edge sewing S
at the upper section of the bra, the lining 3 and the obverse cloth
4 are extended to couple with a back piece 51 to form a whole-piece
bra 5. Such bra 5 can be used directly or goes with a movable shoulder
strap 6. The bra cup 32 can completely hold a woman's breast, and
the whole bra 5 has a seamless look due to the invisible wire 31
but still retains the reliability of focusing to lift a woman's
breast and simplifies the production, lowers cost and enhances production
efficiency. Furthermore, please refer to FIG. 5. A strongly elastic
segment 43 of appropriate width that is larger than the lining 3
is extended and deposed at the lower edge of the obverse cloth 4.
Besides, using the strongly elastic segment for the covering, it
restricts and prevents the turning over of the obverse cloth 4 and
give a reliable binding to the whole bra 7 but does not have any
stress for the reinforcement of the positioning. Further, when the
user wears the bra, it gives the user a comfortable feeling and
when casual wear is needed, the wire in the bra cups can be removed.
Therefore, in summation of the above description, the improved
underwire bra of the present invention obviously simplifies its
formation compared with the traditional underwire bras, and beautifies
the curve of a woman's bust, and gives a perfect fit to it, and
the comfort when wearing. The inventor of the present invention
based on years of experience in the related industry conducted extensive
research to enhance the structure of the storage rack herein which
is hereby submitted for patent application.
