Hi I'm new. I was wondering if anyone out there has the same problem I do with bras that never fit. I am a DD and 34 or less. Needless to say, it is pretty challenging for me to find bras that will last. I just bought some a month ago or so, and they are already stretched out. I am so mad. I saw a few postings from women who have made some bras. And they were informative. I was just wondering if anyone had anyother ideas???
Thanks. HH

I'm in the same boat...DDD and 34. I have looked at patterns online but they are not sized correctly for this...I'm still looking for resources too.

www.bramakersupply.com   everything, including patterns for bra-making, and she carries patterns that allow for small bands and big cups.  I'm a 30FF, so i def. understand.  I buy my bras from bare necessities when I have to, but its more economical to make my own.  Also, many bras that stretch out can be cut down and re-sewn once.  Quality materials obviously make a difference, and so does how you wash it and what you wash it in--so be careful and don't ever use woolite or hot water on you bras. 
the website also has instructions on how to clone a bra you own.
good luck

There's a HUGE thread called Bramageddon that has a ton of resources, websites, links to tutorials, and so on. Hunt that down and read it front to back. You'll find pretty much everything you need there.

Also, this isn't a sewing tip, but I've discovered, as a 32DDD, that Chantelle bras are amazing! They fit fantastic and are very high quality. They're a bit pricey, and unfortunately you can only find them at Nordstroms. But I usually find better prices on them online.

Seriously. I will never waste my money on any other bra brand again.

I have had luck finding hard to fit sizes (32DD) at Nordstroms as well. Freya is my favorite brand, I give my bras a work out and this brand holds up beautifully. I even find them on clearance sometimes!
