You can buy them. Cheesy sewsassy.com has them. For a cheaper alternative I was at walmart last night (dreaded evil empire) and saw some stretch elastic on clearance. 20 cents a yard. It would be perfect for bras! Cheesy You can also just use more of the fabric since it is a custom bra you wont need it to be adjustable.

Well, I read about halfway through all these posts, but since my glasses are broken, and I have only one contact, reading all this is making my eyes and brain hurt...

I was measured as a 52 I...  finding this size is IMPOSSIBLE.  I can find one or two bras in certain places, but I never get to see if "one kind or size fits better" 'cause they don't have other kinds or sizes to try (close to my size).  I get a choice of take it or leave it.  And I have to take it 'cause if I don't, then no bra... period.

I am a very beginning sewer and making bras scare the nipple off me.  Hehe.  So I'm really scared.  To top it off, no money.  All my bras gave up on me about 4 to 6 months ago, still wearing them if nothing else to keep the nipple from killing someone.  But I'm really at a loss as to what I can do...  no money, no talent, no resources.  *sigh*  Thanks for having all these threads for plus sizes.  I know I appreciate the thoughts and help.  I love my boobies, but get really tired of trying to keep them happy.  Thought of advertising in a personals site for a "boob holder".  I figure I would have many applicants for this position *lol*

Hehe, rainbow.... Seriously, though, is there a local forum for bartering services and goods in your area? You could offer to swap something you can do well for, say, 'advanced sewing and fitting skills for a fairly small project'. Just a thought. Smiley

You know, I haven't looked for something like that...  I make chainmaille jewelry, so that always seems to trade well at shows and festies 'n' stuff...  It's such a small secluded area, that I really don't think we'll have such a creature.  And living here my entire life, I know nearly everyone in town.  BUT maybe I'll get something started.  I know I have local sewing persons at the farmer's market I sell jewelry at...  they might be willing to help me out.  Thanks for the idea.  I appreciate the thought!!

Hi msvivid,

you mean the separation between your two girls? A bra that does't separates your boobs properly, is definately too small. If you have the right size, the piece that separates them should lie flat on your breastbone (or nearly flat). If not, try a cup size bigger, or two.

Wow, what a great thread. Recently I tried to make an overbust corset from an underbust pattern. NIGHTMARE. I could just not get it right. Thank you so much to those of you who posted pictures, very encouraging. I can't wait to get the bra making ktis I ordered after reading this.

Hi Saragold,

if you want to make an overbust corset, try the laughing moon dore or silverado pattern. It's really good for curvier gals like us  Wink

What pattern are you going to use for your bra kit? It's really not that complicatet to sew your own bra, if you work acurately. If you have problems or questions in the prozess, just ask!
