A year and a half ago I had reduction surgery which you can imagine changed my body drastically. Although it was something I had been thinking about for a while, I couldn't wait any longer at that point due to the negative health effects the ladies were causing me that were close to becoming permanent damage. It was the best decision I ever made and I have never regretted it one minute! To honor my pre-reduction body I decided to frame some of my favorite bras (the ones that were slightly worn out or that didn't fit my friend who I passed all my usable bras off to). Bras at my previous size were insanely expensive so I always considered them like artwork anyways Smiley I finally got to finish these today and thought I would share!

The fabric backgrounds in both was left over from other projects (working through my stash yay!). The bras were all sewn so the back bands were firmly held against the front and the straps were positioned how I wanted. Then I used pins to position them in the frame. I opted for a temporary method just in case I needed to use them for something later.
