I'm belatedly tackling the swimsuit that was going to be my competition entry :D. Now that I'm putting it together, I'm not sure what to do about the band of elastic under the cups in the inside. I've tried it on with the cups tacked in place in the lining, and there definitely needs to be something to hold them in closer to the body. How do I decide how much to stretch the elastic under the cups, is there a formula? Also, will elastic in the front piece only be enough or should it go round the back. I checked out Ryan's Mum's construction notes and Oceanpeg's, which had slightly different takes on the inside support issue. I'm still unsure what the best way to tackle this is.
