How to Use Fabrics for Fun, Beautiful Bras!
I firmly believe that ALL women, regardless of size or shape, deserve to have amazing, beautiful bras to define their style! That is really what makes creating your own custom bras so fun (I mean, besides the fact that they actually fit!).
- Always use the same fabrics on the inner layer of your bra that you used to fit your bra with so that you don't change the fit.
- My preference is to use two layers of a medium weight tricot (40-50 denier) for my cups. If I use something heavier, like duoplex, as my cup fabric I really limit my "fun fabric" options. If your base bra is designed to have a cup that is only one layer thick, you can't add a fun layer unless your fabric or lace is super lightweight.
- You can cover the band as long as the fun fabric has at least 50-75% stretch.
- You can cover the cup with just about anything. If your fun fabric has a greater degree of stretch than the inner cup fabric make sure to trim a bit off the edges so it will lay smoothly.
