Building a Better Bra

It’s almost a rule that the more attractive a bra is, the less comfortable it feels -- and vice versa. A bra that doesn’t cause shoulder or back pain, supports the breasts and allows freedom of movement has all the aesthetic appeal of an ACE bandage, while a bra built for looks is as pleasant to wear as a stiletto heel. NC State College of Textiles student Sophie Nunno-Gorbachev ‘19 believes there is a better way, and, as the recent recipient of a grant from the Office of Undergraduate Research, she is well on her way to designing a bra that marries form and function.
