I'm sure many of you can empathize....

....in having trouble finding bras that fit adequately in RTW. I make do with Hanes 40DD I find at Walmart because they don't fit any worse for $12 than Victoria's Secret fits for a lot more.

I have LeAnn Burgess' book making beautiful bras, but it lacks in some info. I have been contemplating the bra makers manual by beverly johnson, but I just don't know about that much money for another book. Suggestions?

I think bra making is an art an it requited a lot of hardworking. We just need to think about the designs of bras and about the fabrics which we want to use in our making. I think cotton and pollster fabrics are better option for this purpose.
