Hmmm, both books that have been suggested look like they'd be really helpful, but ouch! they're pricey! (esp. the one that was in Threads!)

I agree !!!! Cheesy I do plan on my Hubby buying it for me for our anniversary... LMAO... I know I know.. most others would have a fit.. But as long as it comes with something pretty I am AOK Cheesy Grin lol Smiley I see that book as an investment.... And I want it! I did research on the lady (can't remember the name LMAO that is how bad my memory is) who wrote the Bramakers Manual... Cheesy She is extremely successful and if you look through her webpage about the book she has a gallery and most things are absolutely to die for! I can't wait to get my shot at it!

They are intriguing, but I'll admit, I still don't see how they would work. If you're wearing a super-low neckline though, I guess it's better than nothing! Smiley

They work like a like a regular bra. They just eliminate some of the material between the breasts. They still have an underwire in them for support.

I have made an underwire bra and also a sports type bra. They weren't that complicated, from memory and fit really well.

I used a kit from www.boobytraps.com. au

 Shocked


Thanks to all of you who opened my eyes about the new places not only to purchase bras, but also to make them!

I have long wondered why it is only the SMALL busted women in this
country who seem to have the option of showing cleavage they and
the company have created?!!   I gurantee you that we have AMPLE
cleavage to show, if only the bra fit correctly and pushed the "team"
together and upward just as it does our smaller breasted sisters.

Try to imagine Sopnia Loren in an 18 hour bullet proof horror, even HER world renown breasts would suffer!  It's time to talke back our own
nature given right girls!
