                  Here comes the all new Bra-Cup with a perfect fit and an optimized decollete from cup sizes A to C. The “One Shape fits All” concept is based on the same outer shell for all sizes. Three different Push-Up paddings guarantee a maximum wearing comfort and perfect appearance from A to  C.

                  PUSH TO FIT HARMONIOUS

                  The right push for the right size

                  Within this Bra-Cup series the thickness of the Push-Up padding is following the different sizes of the garment. A small size bra is made with a thick Push-Up padding while the biggest Bra-Cup size comes with a very reduced padding. This results in a perfect positioning of the padding within the cup. With growing sizes the padding moves from the lateral side support more to the middle center. Combined with the soft foam and an ultrafine inside cover, this Bra-Cup gives women highest confidence regarding comfort, fitting and the female optic.

                  After the introduction of the first generation of UN_WIRED Cups in 2013 and their tremendous success within the industry, the engineers at MUEHLMEIER did not rest on their laurels. For 2014, the latest iteration of M-Tec® UN_WIRED Bra-Cups comes with a more narrow shape, to bring the breast more forward while obtaining the plus in comfort of a wireless Bra-Cup.

                  To match the industry’s demand for a high class Bra-Cup with a great “Real Breast Feel” at a reasonable price, MUEHLMEIER was looking for the right formula for a new M-Tec® Bra-Cup with “Breastlike Texture”.

The absolutely convincing result is a very smooth and soft cup in typical M-Tec® quality.

The new M-Tec® FLEXIBLE PUSHUP Bra-Cup unites the freedom and flexibility of using different sizes of Push-Ups as well as the comfort and elegance of a classic Push-Up-Bra. Inside this M-Tec®-Cup you will find a second layer of fabric with an integrated pocket. Push-Up inlays in different sizes can be placed easily into this pocket.

                A word form our director Roman Muehlmeier.

                Bodyshaping means for me a sort of sculpting Body-Cosmetics. Individual breast shaping for the needs

                of each woman.

                Professional components´ branding. Creating a competitive edge and building momentum. Together.

                Intel inside. Just two words on your PC or Laptop. But also a promise for the power and reliability of the computer. As far away the worlds of computers and lingerie seem, this is still one of the best examples of successful Co-Branding.

                The idea of a competitive advantage built on the component`s qualification of a brand partner is found in nearly every branch. And the number of Co-Branding-Partnerships rises, since products got more comparable with the rise of the internet. A lot of manufacturers - from cars to electronics - tried and still try to focus on aggressive pricing. But this is a field of competition, where Europeans and Americans can`t win on in the long term. We have to concentrate on our true strengths, like quality, reliability and innovation. And we have to tell this to our customers - over and over.

                We must give them the chance to learn about our efforts to provide them with products they love. Their faith in brands is the promise we have to fulfill.
