The July issue of Threads magazine has a GREAT article about modifying patterns to fit a flat chest.  i don't know how many others have this problem, but it bugs me no end to finish a sewing project, and have it gap open or sag over my significant lack of boobage.  includes how to measure for the alterations, and where to make them for princess seams, side darts, and armhole darts.  this article not lives by my sewing table.

Hehe... I'm also a flat-chested girl.. I mean.. I have breasts, (the A kind,  Roll Eyes ) don't get me wrong, but of course, they're not the huge things that men dream of.. so screw 'em. Sorry.....  Grin I just get pissed at that "ideal" size for women.

Anyway... I know exactly what you mean.  Cheesy

Thank the gods someone else has this problem.  I am too the point now that when I make bodices, shirts and dresses, I only tack down the seams around my chest because I know they will need alteration from the pattern.  I actually mark the stuff I make if I need to wear some padding or as I call it: I need to put on my boobs.  Grin  I fall under the A cup line and no there is no chance of them getting any larger.  I gave up somewhere in my late 20s.  And if the husband dreams of larger ones, he's out of luck!  LOL  I'll have to hunt down that issue at the library.  Thanks so much!

FYI
I don't know if you have trouble finding bras but here's a site aimed at A and AA cups!

Haha! NynaeveAs, you reminded me of something I used to do.  Smiley

In the vain attempt of looking "fuller" I bought a padded bra with underwire. You know, the whole deal. It was pathetically sad.... hehe.. anyway. It was of course the most awful and uncomfortable piece of so-called clothing I've ever worn! And, as a ding-bell I wore it for several weeks before getting fed up with it. Anyway... whenever I got dressed in the morning I looked at my hubby and said, "Well... time to put the boobs on." Or, at night, I'd say, "Hold on honey.. I need to take my boobs off." He'd always laugh because he doesn't care about the size... as long as I'm happy (he's an ass man anyway!  Shocked )

I've long stopped wearing padded bras. What's the use? It's like false advertising, right?  Cheesy

Anyway.. just thought I'd share a funny story at my expense.  Wink

I completely understand.  I find bras uncomfortable, and as i'm too small to need support, I usually don't bother wearing one ^_^ that, and I'm a little hippie.  (have a vintage button on my denim jacket that says "I'm Braless!") i'll occasionally wear a padded one to fill out dressier clothes, but as soon as I get home, i set them free, Tongue

LOL! Laney, mine's a leg man so I'm in luck, too.  I think he is a small chect man too as the one girlfriend of mine who is also an A cup, he says, is the "hottest" of my friends.  Cheesy

I'm a mostly free girl as well.  I only wear them when I have clothes that need filling out and when a top is too thin.  I've also added a lining to sew tops so I won't need to wear a bra.  Here's a plus for the small side:  My other girlfriends are mostly C and higher so they find it funny that those is As go without.  (Weird what you talk about while shopping.)   I wouldn't want to have more as several of them sleep in bras and similar items.  Another plus is I save lots of money on bras, so I have more for crafting!

Opps! I forgot to ask what the title of the Threads article is.

NynaeveAS -- You mentioned that some of your friends sleep in their bras? There are some doctors who suggest wearing bras overnight, or any such tight and restricting clothing on a female's chest for long periods of time, may actually have a factor in breast cancer... even in people who don't have breast cancer in their family. You might want to check it out and tell your friends about it. I'm not sure if it's true.. but a lot of people don't want to risk it and find out!!

Just a thought...  Smiley
