Strength in Numbers: CUUP Community Shoot

Strength in Numbers: CUUP Community Shoot

On Saturday, February 1st, we photographed 45 women from the CUUP community, styling our core silhouettes on a range of real bodies (in really great vintage from The Break in Williamsburg, Brooklyn). 

For years, our many female forms have been squeezed into a few standard sizes. When our differences haven’t fit, we’ve been asked to compromise – our comfort, our sensuality, our sense of belonging. We created CUUP to change that. To celebrate, not solve, women’s complexities.

So, we threw out a century-old sizing scale and made our measurements on real female bodies. Today, we proudly offer 39 sizes, A to H, of bras designed to fit different.

Meet the women who joined us. The strength and softness they exude exemplifies how fit should always feel.
