So I was asked to make some training bras. Me being, well, me and loving challenges said sure. So here are my two versions of the bras. One is a sports bra type and the other is more a traditional trainer with adjustable straps. (please forgive my manni, she's not as big in the chest as the bras needed her to be)

Those are great! Very professional looking. My only concern is that the patterns would be visible through her clothes since they're so bold.

Nice job!  I'll have to keep this in mind when my girl is older.

I agree with LovieDovieAnn. I think you should try to use some lighter fabrics. Most little girls are a little embarrassed when it comes to wearing a bra at first. Very nice work otherwise.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.
yep, its like that

My daughter would love these!  She has a million training bras of all shades and patterns-when she wants to wear a bold or dark print she just wears a dark shirt, so it all works out!

I am guessing you drafted these patterns yourself?  They look fantastic!

many fun bras in the store are just like these.  i would buy them in my size (and wear them under opaque clothes).

creative criticism always appreciated!

Love these.   My oldest is at this stage and I thought of making a few. as she really doesn't want to wear them.

I agree - as a kid, almost all the shirts I had would have shown those patterns through. They look phenomenal, but I think I might make them out of lighter fabric!

Thanks everyone. 

The customer picked the fabrics, I just did the details. Wink  Though you do make a good point about showing though. 

Thanks for the wonderful  comments!

Can I suggest something that I discovered for myself?
I wear sports bras to bed [because I find clothing just gets tangled around me, no matter how tight it is, but I have a housemate so nakie doesn't quite cut it  Embarrassed Undecided T.M.I?]

The most comfortable one I've bought has a band of elastic [encased in the fabric] at the bottom. The elastic is about 1.5cm [what's that, like.. .75 inches? Something like], and it helps it sit flat on my ribcage and doesn't move around too much, without it being too tight. I find the ones with the thin elastic cuts in after a while, and I end up with marks which can be pretty tender after a night of sleeping on it.

But great job! Cheesy

Keep smiling - It makes people wonder what you're up to.

Looking for Australian personal swaps! [For now. I'll branch overseas when I can afford it!]
