The breasts are very important organs of the female anatomy. They contain very delicate tissue that needs to be protected and supported. Brassieres, generally referred to by the abridged name bras, are the garments that perform this job of supporting the breasts. Although they are undergarments, bras have not escaped the fashion maelstrom. There are many styles and designs on the market that cater to the practical needs of women as well as their individual styles. Indeed bras are quite fashionable nowadays with some being lacy and downright sexy. However the most common type known as the soft cup bra will be the focus of this article.
Soft cup bras offer firm support to the breasts but with delicate comfort. Many bras these days are now designed with padding. Padding is a feature in the cups to give the breasts a fuller or more rotund appearance in addition to enhancing cleavage. But padding can sometimes be uncomfortable and also prevents the cup from molding to the contours of the breasts. The soft cup bra generally does not feature padded cups. It utilizes smooth textured materials and sometimes may have a thin lining that gently cushions the breasts. Soft cup bras also do not have any underwires. Underwires can be extremely discomforting because they have the tendency to jab or poke into the skin surrounding the breasts.

The soft cup sports bra, as the name suggests, is intended for those women who are physically active.
