A bra is a piece of intimate clothing worn by women that has a significant impact on their mood and everyday activities. If a woman wears an uncomfortable bra, her mood may suffer that day.

The brassiere is constructed in a square frame type, with the major components being the chest strap that wraps around the woman's torso, two cups that hold the breasts, and shoulder straps. Brassieres are often fastened with hook-and-eye fasteners on the back, while some are fastened in the front. Without fasteners, sleep bras and sports bras are worn through the head and over the breasts. The "spine" is the front section between the cups. The "back wing" refers to the lower area of the armpit where the cups are linked by straps.
The top and bottom of the cups (when sewn together), the center, side pieces, back pieces, and straps cut to the manufacturer's standards are all bra components. Multiple layers of cloth are frequently cut with a machine-controlled laser or band-saw shearing equipment and then assembled by workers or automated machinery at various places using industrial-grade sewing machines. Both straps are stitched with machine- and heat-finished (or ironed) coated metal hooks and eyelets with a tag or logo. Some bras no longer have information labels on the bras themselves. The finished bras are packaged, sorted by style, and folded (by machine or by hand) before being dispatched.
Early bras were made of linen, cotton suede, and twill textiles with flat or bias-cut seams before the advent of contemporary apparel fabrics. A variety of fabrics are now used to make bras, including calico, spandex, latex, microfiber, satin, jacquard, foam, mesh, and lace, all mixed for specialized uses. One of these is spandex, a synthetic material with "stretch memory" that is compatible with cotton, polyester, and nylon. Mesh textiles, on the other hand, are constructed from a high-tech synthesis of smoothness tight ultra-fine filaments.
Sixty to seventy percent of bras sold in the United Kingdom and the United States feature steel rings composed of metal, plastic, or resin. Rings are incorporated into the bottom border of the cups, near the bra straps, to improve the bra's stability. For the broad breast edge, the steel ring provides permanent support and storage. Rimless or soft cup bras support the breasts with additional seams and internal supports. T-shirt bras, on the other hand, use mechanical one-off molded cups rather than underwire cups, and some cups include additional padding or molded fabric inside to increase bust size and depth of cleavage.
