I have very small shoulders and big cup size. I am trying to figure something to support the breast when I make bustier. I want something cute and sexy too!!

Never can find commercial bustiers that fit me because most are not made for G cups etc.

Now, anyone have ideas on what to do for my big belly, ever since I started going through menopause I look like I am pregnant.

Something like a nice weight satin would work for the cups and look great. You want something that has no stretch to give extra support, lining could help as well.

I prefer less stretchy knit. You get the hold by the pattern it self is "lined" you cut the cups one direction and then the other direction. Sew them together and you get the strength by the knits going in opposite directions. (so they don't stretch much).

I took Anne's from Needle Nook Fabrics class and love it!
