What is a Spacer Bra?

During your browse for lingerie it’s very likely that you’ve come across a ‘Spacer Bra’ before. It’s also very likely that you’ve thought ‘what on earth is a Spacer Bra?’. If you’ve always wondered but never discovered, read on to find out more (and possibly change your life).

Spacer Bras are a lightweight alternative to your usual padded bras. The difference lies within the fabric – it’s all about the Spacer Fabric. It’s created very differently to regular foam as the purpose is for it to be light and breathable. Spacer Fabric is a 3D knitted fabric (constructed of 2 layers of thin fabric, joined together with a spacer yarn), woven to create airflow and light padding.

Spacer Fabric is a premium fabric, designed to keep you feeling fresh and breezy because of its breathability. You get the smooth, supported finish of a T-Shirt bra with the added light feel of the Spacer Fabric, and because it’s so thin and lightweight, it moulds really well and creates a great shape. It’s perfect for women who like a moulded style but don’t want the added bulk of padding, and don’t want to compromise on support.

If your every day T-Shirt bra feels like it has something missing, it’s probably time to upgrade to a Spacer Bra!
