I made a bra! » All bra adventures


I made a bra!

It's not perfect, nor is it a perfect fit, but I think it's decent for a first attempt! 32E. So obviously it's too shallow at the bottom of the cup and doesn't have enough support because it's wireless. It's kind of a longline which is not completely ideal for me right now because I'm pregnant. I also totally forgot to buy rings, but I wanted to finish it, so I made them out of cord. :P

I've always wanted to have an online store where I sell something I've made. I have been making face masks since late April and have been doing pretty well with that on Etsy, but I know the demand for those can't last forever. Running that shop for a little over a month has shown me it's actually possible for me to be successful as a small business. I'd love to add bras to my shop offerings, so I'm going to work hard to improve and get my bras to saleable quality. :D

The pattern is Lana by Made For Mermaids, which you can find here:

  • I'd be interested! I'm always looking for more ethical bras. A bit of a challenge when you're a 30H, though :P

  • Yeah, unfortunately this particular pattern only goes up to a US G cup. :( I do want to try out different patterns that have a better size range. This is one of the few I could find that had sub-32 bands and above DD cups.
