I started the new year off with bra alteration adventure! I got this bra in a swap from martka00, despite finding the straps on my 65FF S far too wide. This bra, in its unaltered state, was not a great fit. The straps were cutting into my armpits and I had gaping at the top corners of the cups. I liked the fit of the rest of the bra enough to try my hand at some alterations. I found this strap alteration tutorial online and followed the instructions. I moved the straps in by 2cm on each side of the bra - and the fit is now almost perfect. I will admit that my alteration did not turn out as neat the one in the tutorial, but it is passable. I need some more practice before I try this on a bra with more detailing, but I am really happy with the improved fit. This bra is super comfortable.

  • Nice! Are you thinking about trying this on your Fluo as well?

  • veggiechic I'm a little nervous about trying it on the Fluo, as the lace is so delicate. I think I need a little more practice first.

  • This looks great!

    I think it looks better like this! It’s so elegant with its wider straps. Like a old Hollywood glamor.

  • cupandahalf I agree. I love the wide cushioned straps.

  • And those straps are super comfy for all day wear..... All bras should have straps like those.

    MamaPagan agreed!

    Yay!!! You got an S to fit. It looks great on you now.
    I'm taking another shot at an S. I included one in my order with Magda. If it doesnt work in 65G I'm gonna give up on ewa padded styles..

    rachaelll I had forgotten about this tutorial. Thanks for posting it again. I might try this on my new S, it can't possibly get any worse than it already is.

    AprilGoulding you might want to ask Magda to take the straps in for you on the S. MamaPagan said that Magda can arrange alterations before shipping the bras to Canada

    Sovavosi that's exactly what I thought! Hopefully, it works well for you.

  • If only there was a tutorial for adding depth at the base without adding height to the cup......

  • MamaPagan Someone on Reddit did that but they had to cut the bra apart and insert a new panel in vertically.

  • O.o Fabric matching would be difficult. .......oh, and my lack of seamstress skills would be an issue. Haha!

  • rachaelll if the bra fits but straps need moving, I'll get Julia at Ellesmere to do it.
    I dont want to alter before trying it on, in case I need to sell it

    AprilGoulding that is a much more sensible idea.

  • Yes, @savovosi and MamaPagan, with my mediocre sewing skills I would imagine inserting some triangular darts at the bottom part of the seem(s) would be a way to do it. I would certainly be nervous to try, but it might be better than having a bra that doesn't fit sitting around.

    veggiechic I have the hardest time getting over the "you're wrecking it, OMG" feeling whenever I think about altering something.

    Been there, done that.....horribly, haha! Just remember if you don't succeed, it can't be worse than my Frankenbra failure, and I can send you that link to make you feel better. So far it has worked everytime at making others feel better with their sewing fumbles. :-D

  • Wow! It looks fantastic! I am so glad that it’s a good fit now. I really do love my 70E S Szykus but I know it is too small and I really want to try a 70F or maybe 65FF in another S (band has to stretch to 29” minimum, so whichever size will give me that). I would be so nervous about altering it myself, but it is probably among the easiest of the alterations as well as most useful. Well done! I hope you enjoy your new S bra.
