WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Playtex, one of America's best-selling bra brands, has introduced its new Playtex Play collection featuring five bra styles with innovative comfort flex fit technology and alpha sizing to meet the fit and support needs of daily activities like walking the dog, running errands and working.
Playtex Play bras utilize patented shape-to-fit technology, targeted support zones and a unique simple sizing system ranging from small to 2XL. The flexibility and custom shaping of the bras allow the five easy-to-fit alpha sizes to replace 19 traditional cup-and-band bra sizes ranging from 36B to 44D. Women can feel confident as they move through their day because each bra is made with an All Day Dry™ fabric design and the Playtex TruSupport® system.
