Gorgeous, Sigrid! I will make a note to keep this review for future reference. I'd like to make this one again but need to narrow the bridge and see if I can perfect that step. Good luck in the contest! Beautiful entry!

gorgeous bra and thank you so much for pasing on those helpful tips for working with padding. Much easy than wrestling with a tonne of pins!

I can only hope to aspire to make a bra as lovely as yours someday. I reread your tutorial all the time. Thanks so much. This one is gorgeous.

Your bra is gorgeous AND it fits! Great review, too. Someone's review, maybe one of yours, on this site led me to order a Makebra kit. I am not interested in padding, but a woman who fitted me a long time ago said that the molded bras don't need to add to your bustline; on the contrary, they merely provide better support. I wonder if you agree.

Thank you ladies for your kind comments. @JDpenelope: I agree with this. I'm a size 75F, which means I don't want more bustline than I have by nature, the molded bra's give support and feel well. The way I treated them with the vliesofix also makes the padding having less "give", adding to the support.

Beautiful a d thank you for your detailed construction steps

Sigrid Thanks for the reply. Good to know you don't think the molding needs to add to your bustline. I woke up wondering if we have any round balls in the right size, to help mold the bra into the correct shape. You use some terms that are new to me: 1) vliesofix (bondaweb) and also 2) styropor ball but I get your drift. I will refer to your reviews of the Makebra when I get enough gumption to try it probably after making a few other attempts first with other patterns. The Makebra kits are NOT inexpensive!

Beautiful bra, Sigrid! Thanks again for sharing your construction tips and tricks. I think this method would be perfect for making a sports bra. I'm amazed at how different the mesh looks with the different coloured underlays.

Gorgeous bra, Sigrid! I love the tip on use a fusible web type of product as I have been using basting spray before sewing. I think fusible web would be a better option. Also, loved the tip for molding the cup over some type of dome-shaped surface. Very helpful!
