You've made a great bra. It looks like it has all the support a girl could need. Great review.

WoW Your first, and it is first class! I am most impressed... Excellent and encouraging to others review. I would love a bra-making weekend class --anywhere east of the Mississippi would be do-able...

Thank you, Susan. Everything is working--and that's a very pretty bra.

Whoops! I tried sharing the setting. Try again, Elona.

Gee, when I click on your photo to see it close up, this is the message I get: "Sorry, that page was not found."

I've also made this bra and while the Duoplex is super supportive I also felt like it was too unforgiving. I thought it was just my 32B cup size though. If you want a fabric that is more forgiving try ordering some Simplex from Fabric Depot Co. It is more difficult to sew than Duoplex but I find it has a tiny bit more stretch so it gives a softer look and feel than Duoplex. It only comes in black, white, and nude but since it is nylon it is easy to dye the white using Rit.
