Clear Bra: Is it worth it for you?

A paint protection film is essentially a protective wrap for areas of your car that are the most susceptible to damage. The primary purpose of a clear bra is to protect these areas from road debris that can cause a scratch or chip in your paintwork. Since these items are usually custom cut (or manufactured from a car schematic) and applied by hand, they can sometimes cost more up to $2500 depending on how many panels you want done, though it is generally cheaper than that. You can obtain one on just about any car you desire. But what exactly is a clear bra? What are the advantages and disadvantages? Let’s take a closer look…

Pros Of A Clear Bra

In general, the concept of a clear bra is fantastic. It lasts a long time and can barely be seen covering your paint. The main advantage is that whether you’re driving a Porsche Carrera 4s or a Toyota Camry Limited, you won’t have to deal with a slew of rock chips on your bumper when you return home from work. It becomes even more worthwhile if you reside in the city. This clear polymer shield will protect your paint from many of the scuffs and marks that come with city living.

Cons Of A Clear Bra

There are numerous advantages to a clear bra, but it does not mean that you don’t have to take care of your car anymore. The clear bra will protect your paint, but it can still take a beating itself from the aforementioned scrapes and chips, as well as harmful UV rays. However, it is better for the clear bra to receive this damage than your car’s paint job. Additionally, you have to be sure to keep up with regular cleaning for your car because if certain substances are allowed to sit on it, they might eat through the film. You certainly don’t want to let your investment go to waste in that way.


You may have heard that regular waxing is enough to keep your car’s paint in good condition. That simply isn’t the case. Wax isn’t very protective because it only lasts about a month. It’s not scratch-resistant and has no purpose other than to add a gorgeous sheen. Furthermore, when it comes to matte paint, wax is not an option. Getting a clear bra and then applying a nano coating on top of it to keep the film from discoloring is the very best approach to keep scratches from ruining your paint.
