Moulded bras are popular everyday bras, with cups made of a single piece of fabric to give a smooth, seamless silhouette. They also provide complete support, often made with foam padding for a pre-formed shape. Shop our collection of moulded bras here, featuring the best from our most popular brands, including Fantasie, Freya and PrimaDonna.
What is a Moulded Bra?
A moulded bra is a type of bra where the cup is made from a single piece of fabric, meaning that it doesn’t have seams across the cup and has a smooth silhouette underneath clothing. Moulded bras can also have foam padding in the cups, creating a pre-formed, rounded shape. Moulded bras are not the same as t-shirt bras.
What is the Difference Between a Moulded and Padded Bra?
Moulded bras provide shape without adding volume, whereas padded bras are designed to add volume by making the breasts look fuller and firmer. The padding itself is also different: moulded bras typically have foam padding, whereas padded bras can either contain gel, synthetic or foam.
Is a Moulded Bra a Padded Bra?
A moulded bra isn’t the same as a padded bra. Moulded bras normally have contoured foam padding and provide shape without adding volume or size to the breast. Whereas, padded bras are specifically designed to add volume and can contain different types of padding.
Are Moulded Bras Good?
Moulded bras are great for a number of reasons. They provide support, lift and a rounded, smooth shape. They’re great for everyday wear but can also be worn for any occasion, making them very versatile bras.
