Wow, Kay! Your bra looks terrific, and since I can only wear molded bras, it's just what I need. Thank you so much.

Very professional-looking. Lucky that you were able to learn which size cups you needed.

Wow - thanks for the detailed review. Bra's still scare the beejeezers out of me though - think i'll leave it to the experts for a little while longer!

I had no idea a bra pattern like this existed so thanks for the review. All your detailed info is extremely helpful. Your bra looks well finished.

Despite your great review, I'm actually really glad I didn't buy this pattern earlier this year, as it sounds overly confusing and I have no idea why there's a seam in the side? That's the first time I've ever seen that, in a pattern or RTW bra and it just looks like it must be uncomfortable? You've done an excellent job with all the finishing and elastic and I'm glad you've found a pattern that works for you - it's taken me about 4 bras to get my own fit right, and I love these foam cups bras, too! I ended up drafting my own pattern and it's so freeing to know you can make more whenever you want! :)

Great review! Cup sizing is not a science it's an must consider the circumference of the breast as well as the projection from the ribcage and general shape desired and provided. Surprisingly some women with flat looking breasts are not a small cup size. Manufacturers all seem to have their own idea of melding the concepts together. It goes without saying that a bespoke bra can address a lot of fit and comfort issues.

looks terrific - the lingerie shops sell little bra-suitcases just especially for those cups, as it is a good idea to store them carefully as well ;-)

Looks fantastic! Great detailed work from you, as always :) I just wish I could find a pattern that looks that good & has no underwires....
