Recently I've become frustrated with shopping for underthings, especially bras. Nothing ever fits, and if it does, it's padded. I guess they assume that all us small-busted ladies are ashamed of our breasts and want a little extra help.
I'm also too poor to shop at boutiques that carry higher end bras. $30 and up for a single bra seems crazy!
Anyway, I've always loved 1940s style, and I think these old bras let breasts look more like breasts than the padded, weirdly-rounded, boob-smooshing things I find in department stores nowadays.
I've been working on this bra for a few weeks at least, and it's FAR from perfect, but I love it and I think I will do better next time. The bra itself is made from a cotton, button-down shirt with a bit of stretch, the straps are cotton twill tape, and the lace along the bottom is stretchy too.

I hope you like it! I was so happy to see other people posting diy underthings this week, I hope more people start doing the same. I could use more inspiration!
Oh, and P.S.: I've gotten comments on my underarm hair before, and I'd rather not get anymore. Yes, it's there. I don't shave, and I don't want to hear about how I should! It's my choice and this is not the place to challenge me on it. Thanks!
