The bra is an intimate wear necessity for women. Alongside lifestyle changes and enhanced awareness of hygiene, bra consumer perceptions and consumption frequency have changed. For instance, as a Chinese, I know younger ladies in China invest more into bras, including money, time, and frequency growth.

The bra industry enjoys a broad growth space. Hence, more firms cover bras in their business scope. How to find a suitable bra manufacturer comes as a major concern to businesses. Today’s blog is right for you.

3 considerations before choosing bra manufacturers

Finding the right factory based on your desired bra types

Decide what kinds of bras you want to sell through market research, and choose the right bra factories. For example, if you target sports bras, you’d better find seamless bra factories, instead of common underwear factories. Because sports bras are woven at one time by specialized equipment—seamless underwear machines, which are expensive.

MOQ (minimum order quantities)

The custom MOQ offered by local bra wholesalers would be usually lower. If you prefer smaller quantities, selecting local bra suppliers is the right choice. But the low MOQ is usually accompanied by a higher wholesale price.

Price and fees

Compared to Western bra manufacturers, the ones in China, Pakistan, and other Asian countries offer cheaper order prices. Outsourcing manufacturing in Asia helps you decrease fees paid for Western bra manufacturers to double or triple content.

Bra manufacturers in China

China is a major exporter of lingerie to North America and Europe, with the advantages of experienced labor sources and low production costs. So many people prefer sourcing bras made in china at cheap prices and then reselling in local markets.

Find bra manufacturers in China B2B sites

It’s easy to find a lot of bra suppliers on Chinese wholesale websites. If your order is small, around $100, I suggest you go directly to AliExpress. There are plenty of bra types available for you to test the market. There is no minimum order quantity, so you can purchase just one piece. The after-sales service is also good.

AliExpress bra without MOQ

If your budget is a few hundred dollars, I recommend going to DHgate rather than Alibaba. Because it’s hard for you to meet the high MOQ of Alibaba suppliers. In comparison, suppliers on DHgate support small wholesale orders.
