The brassiere features a double pair of shoulder straps, one pair of which crisscross at the back. Additional features include a scooped neckline, elasticized capping at the top of the brassiere, a heavy elastic band measuring approximately ¾-inches wide sewn in the bottom hem, and “Admit One” printed at the center of the bust area.

The applicable subheading for the brassiere will be 6212.10.9020, HTS, which provides for Brassieres, girdles, corsets, braces, suspenders, garters and similar articles and parts thereof, whether or not knitted or crocheted: brassiere: other: other . . . of man-made fibers.
