What a beautiful job you have done! As Jane Russell used to say in the old Playtex bra commercials, "Support can be beautiful!"; but yours is so much more beautiful than a playtex bra!

Thank You everyone for such nice comments! And to Plantwizard...once I started making making padded straps that do not stretch (on the padded part) and only the back part of the strap is elastic, they no longer fall down! I teach Bra Making and really encourage women to have fun with color, prints, and lace.

I skipped the boning when I started to use extra heavy powernet for the band. I´m still amazed over how many beatiful fabric and laces there´s out there and how great it is that the internet let us explore the sites that provides us with materials

I always thought that bras should have a little extra boning on the side for us fleshy women. I am inspired to work harder to improve my skills so that I can try to make my own lingerie esp bras. Yours is truely beautiful and so pracitcal too. I love padded straps too. A really great job and wonderful valentine's day gift for your Valentine!

Very nice! I would love to be able to make my own bras and panties. I will eventuallu attempt to make me a bra, hopefully it will turn out as beautiful as yours. Thanks for your review!

Gorgeous. Does the sizing run true to your regular ready to wear size? Would it be hard to inset the back strap attachment to keep the straps from falling down (the bane of bras in my life)?
