These articles are my absolute favorites; thank you so very,uh for demystifying bra-making & especially patterning! My difficulty in building the lingerie I would like fr myself is in finding underwires useable for my US 40G cup size; hav you any resources that might carry such things, or suggestions on a DIY solution in lieu?
Hi Pudding, I totally agree, “East West is Best” were babies and nursing mothers are concerned, but in my work I inhabit the unreal world of FASHION and when fashion dictates that the breasts should be pushed up, in and pointing forward to the shape of that of a very young woman’s breasts then I go with that. After all who is the fashion victim? Me who designs bras to give that shape or the people who buy millions of bras each year to obtain that shape. Yes you could argue that it’s people like me who encourage unnatural body shaping but the market for “body enhancement” did come first. (Note to self) I must write an article expanding on this.
Do you have any advice to add regarding significant size difference between breasts? My daughter has one side about an A cup and the other about a D, and she'd like to have a bra that is comfortable and hides the issue.
Oooh, that would be fabulous! She's 16 and very self-conscious about it, and the one side is too small for chicken fillets or pads to work. It's possible that they'll even out eventually, but 16 is hard enough!
