Thanks for the review--I know it's old, but it's really helpful for me, since I'm a similar size to you.

Hello Jacqui315, the foam was definitely easier and quicker than the fleece. i don't know much about bigger cups, but I think it would work.

Great work! I hope you don't mind a couple of questions? Did you prefer the fusible fleece or the foam? Would the foam work with a bigger cup or would it distort? Thanks!

I have the exact opposite issue with bras...I wear a D cup...bordering on DD. You can find these in stores and it's not totally uncommon but they are frequently made like boulder holders and look just about as romantic too! I may have to see if this book or some other has a nice bra in my sizing! Thanks for the review and the bras are very nice looking!

Thanks for the review. I've been wondering about this company since I haven't had luck fitting the Danglez bra pattern.

Wow! I am most impressed! I bought a bra pattern, but that's as far as I've gotten. Very inspiring!

Thanks for the post, I am intrigued as I have been thinking about making bras for my mother and this just might get me 1 step closer.
