Fiberfill can be used in any soft cup bra pattern to add some body and modesty.
Use iron-on fiberfill, and cut the pieces using the cup pattern. Press on and use as the inner lining for the cup pieces. I used it for KS 2375, which is more like a teen bra. The pattern is a soft cup/lace bra and has less support than an underwire bra, but with the fiberfill it provides enough for me... but then, I'm small. For this pattern, I cut the lining off at the underarm, just past the edge of the cup, and serged the edge as you'd see in RTW.

When I use it in my regular, underwire, "miracle bra" copy, I just add it to the cup pieces and sew it up as normal. It's great stuff...

With all the lingerie sewing going on, I hope this little tip helps.

I bought the fiberfill at the local fabric store (Fabric Mart) down my street. I'm sure you can find it online at anyplace where they have sewing supplies for bramaking. It's about 1/8" thin, and looks like the polyester fiberfill you'd use in quilts. Try http://www.fabricdepotco.com or http://www.sewsassy.com or http://www.bramakers.com

Dale, where do you get the iron-on fiber fill, and what does it look like? How thick is it? I've got some that's a sew-in (not too hard to adapt, I shouldn't think), but would love to try the iron on.
