Corin Bras & Briefs - Corin Lingerie
The company's ambition was to create such a shape of bra that would not only be aesthetically pleasing for its clients, but would be the perfect bra - comfortable and healthy. A modified bra shape was developed by Corins constructors and engineers from the Technical University of Lodz. Prof. Marek Zadrozny-head of Oncological Surgery and Breast Diseases Clinic in the Polish Mother Memorial Hospital-Research Institute was overseeing the project.
3D Model Testing
The multi stage research took over a year. The project started with specifying pressure points on a 3D model of the female chest. This was done with a high-tech professional computer program used in digital simulations. First models of the new bra based on that data, helped in examination of the bra's cup projection and in performing another 3D simulation. Only after all those steps, a bra with new and improved shape began to arise.
Thermographic Studies for the perfect bra innovation!
The bra was tested by a group of women of various age and breast size. Young women as well as mothers took part in the test. "The thermovision turned out to be a useful method here to visualize changes in blood supply and thereby the changes of the temperature of the skin of the mammary gland. From our experiments we have clear evidence that wearing tight bras causes large temperature differences within the skin of the breast. Naturally it all depends on the type of a breast, breast size, on the shape of the breast, as well as the body fat in women . It is important to know the technology of making suitable bras and thermographic studies appear to be very useful research. These are not merely subjective feelings of women surveyed, but in an objective manner tell us whether the product has been manufactured correctly and whether it is adequate for the appropriate type of a female breast. " - says Zadrozny.
The research performed by Corin turned out to be successful in the new bra model, after months of research, cups and their shape will evenly distribute the pressure applied to the breast. Results of conducted analysis have already been implemented and used in creating the latest collections.
