Brassiere wire

Brassiere wire

Bekaert brassiere wire is available in a wide variety of tensile strengths and shapes. Shapes include flat, oval and C-shaped core wires. The wires are first galvanized and then extruded with PET. These two coatings together create an outstanding barrier against water, moisture, breaking or flaking. This increases the wire’s lifetime and eliminates squeaking.

The importance of choosing the right wire

Comfortable underwire must adapt to different forms and provide the right support for its wearer. The wire needs to have the strength to preserve its original shape even after numerous washings.

Excellent formability, elasticity and strength

Our brassiere wire excels in both resilience and corrosion resistance. To meet any type of bra, our wires come in a variety of tensile strengths and shapes, including flat, oval and C-shaped core wires.  The zinc,PET coating on the wire increases the wire’s lifetime and eliminates squeaking.

Improve your manufacturing process

The resilient PET coating and slightly rounded edges of the wire are easily inserted into the bra’s wire channel. The smooth coating prevents the wire from breeching the fabric and preserves the bra’s original form for a longer time.


  • Enables a smooth forming process
  • Requires no post-coating
  • Helps you manufacture bras quickly and easily
  • Supports, holds shape and does not squeak
