Playtex 4351 Only You Bra 38C

The Only You family of bras was sold by Playtex from roughly 2001 to 2006. They used a unique, nearly stitch-free construction designed for comfort and an extremely smooth look. Seamless, unpadded, underwired cups. The edges of the cups seem to have a slightly thicker elastic band woven invisibly into the fabric. Here is a TV advertisement for this bra from 2001.

  1. I’m trying to figure out that edging too– looks like it might have actually been created in one piece for making the bra! From a sewing perspective, I can’t see how edging can be added invisibly. I love that scalloped finish. Beautiful color, too!

  2. I made a correction in the description above- the thicker elasticized edging is only in the cups. The wings are consistent thickness throughout. On closer examination, the bra material seems to be made of layers of material (81% nylon, 19% spandex) fused together with the middle (invisible) layer varying with location. The wings and cup edges have a additional elastic middle layer and the center gore has a non-stretch middle layer. The main body of the cups themselves may only be two layers with nothing added. The underwire casing is sewn to the inside layer of the bra, with no stitching visible on the outside.
