This mod was an experiment. Using hand-sewing, I shortened the band and padded the underwire ends with thick leather. The underwire feels narrow to me, but this may just be the widesettedness of the cups due to the too-large band.
The cups are too big at the outsides (mostly too wide). The projection is not too bad, and I can fill them in the middle and bottom. Molded foam cups aren't very amenable to tailoring, otherwise I'd have frankenbra'd them as well.
This is a 38G, but I am (probably) a 32H. Now modified, the band measures 31 unstretched and 37 stretched. For me, the band is still too loose.
A curiosity--an unsuccessful project, because the modifications couldn't make it fit. But it's a successful project because it showed me that a cup problem isn't fixed by padding the underwires or shortening the band. It's also successful because leather details and contrast top-stitching look siiick.
- This bra's measurements have been altered
- Altered band, stitched thick leather to all underwire ends (at center gore and at wings)--am experiment to prevent painful digging/distribute pressure. Hand stitched a shortened band and decorative topstitching (by hand)
This bra is not owned any more
