Hi, all -

OK, so it's summer, and there are all these cute patterns for tanks and halters and things, and I'm all conflicted about making them because they can't be worn with a normal bra. I hate strapless bras (they are evil - eeeeeeviiiiiillllllll), and not wearing a bra is just not an option - trust me on this one. So does anyone know of any good patterns that have built in support? Or does anyone have tricks/tips for altering or adding to patterns in order to create built in bras (short of actually buying bra cups and sewing them in, which I guess is also an option, but which seems bit complicated for my skill level)?


This is why I suggested attack dogs, but no, my mother wanted an alpaca.- Logan, Veronica Mars

Okay...so I really have no ideas, but I wanted to send my bosemy support.   Cheesy  I too despise...no loathe the strapless bra.  I think it was some sort of medievil torture device...much like stilletos.  Anywho, I'm psyched that you posted something.  I would love to see if anyone has solutions.

I am interested in personal swaps...and kittens...and rocks.  Weird huh?

What all of you have been looking for!!


hahaha i was thinking about this delema...I usually try and co-ordinate the color of my bra to the tank top i'm wearing cuz I KNOW they are gonna show... I bought a tank at american eagle that has a built in bra... like back in the 80's the shelf bras they put in swim suits... It's great! basically it's like the 'barely there' seperates bra...no wire, just a wide piece of elastic that fits your ribcage, and a simple stretch fabric liner that is attatched to the top edge. Supposedly we are to get 80% of the support in our bras from the strap that goes around our ribs...and the rest from the cups. My freind who used to work for playtex told me that 75% of all women wear the wrong size bra...(I also saw this on an episode of 'what not to wear').

Hope that's some help.
