Please weigh in: Pointy Bras (lingerie)

Gentlemen (and Ladies), please weigh in on your opinions about the pointy-shaped brassieres.  Cones, Conical, Bullet and Torpedo.  dievca’s not sure what she thinks…

Your breasts would lead the way into any room…

Definitions:

What is a Cone Bra?

A cone bra is the bras of the 1940s, lifting and separating with a subtle conical shape. Cone bras are not padded and give a soft feminine silhouette.

What is a Bullet Bra?

A bullet bra is a distinctive type of bra that creates a pointed or bullet shape to the breasts. This is achieved by spiral stitching which emphasizes a pointed appearance. The bullet bra was built on the softly conical bras of the 1940s but with a much more defined finish.

Conical Bras vs Bullet Bras

The term conical bra is often uses interchangeably with bullet bra which can make things more than a little confusing. The conical or cone bra has a less defined shape and lacks the spiral stitching that truly defines a bullet bra.

What about the Torpedo Bra?

The torpedo is the distinctive shape created by the bra, a pointed or torpedo shape to the breasts. This is achieved by spiral stitching which emphasizes a pointed appearance. Bullet bras are often called torpedo bras and vice versa.

Overwire Bras

Overwire bras are another popular 50s shape. Overwire bras (as the name suggests) are made up of a soft cup, often sculpted, and a wire running around the top of the bust – they are strapless but give great support – making them an excellent choice for strapless gowns and tops.
