In the past I didn’t really think too much about making my own lingerie or bras. I just excepted itchy, pokey and ill-fitting bras. But no more! I’m dipping my toe into the bra making fun that I see all over the web.
Besides, why should I be uncomfortable? I don’t think it matters what size you are, an ill-fitting bra is a horrible thing to wear.
My biggest issues are itchy and weird shaped cups. Itchy is hands down my biggest pet peeve. What do they make these bras with, fiber glass insulation?
Do you have issues with bras not fitting well, or looking good under your clothes?
So how to kill the biggest offenders to comfortable bras, you of course! Don’t bother complaining about it,just make it and sew it the best way for you and your shape and size.
If you have beginning to intermediate sewing skills you should be able to tackle sewing bras with no problem. If you’re unsure where to start, you’ll need to accurately measure yourself. It’s the most important step for perfect fitting bras.
What are your experiences with sewing your own bras? Did you like it, would you do it again? Do you have problems with RTW bras? Let me know in the comments section!
