    Didn't fit

    My 4th Rita. I keep buying them as I get bigger, but sadly the scaling makes this one difficult to wear as the wires are so huge. Today's Elomis have much smaller wires. I want to modify this one to work better for me but I will have to experiment. If I could get this bra in fuschia again I would be so happy.

    Edit: Alterations

    Alterations on this bra were actually quite simple. First, I lowered the gore by cutting it down to the sheer material on the gore. This is actually a perfect gore height for me. I was considering sewing the elastic ... back to the gore and creating a fold in the sheer fabric but I worried it would make the bra too closed and cause quadding. Instead I cut the sheet fabric and elastic off at the scalloped satin edge of the cup. Then I put in new wires (Panache 30HH from some bra, I'm not sure which now) and folded the gore over and sewed to create an overlapping, narrowed gore. The straps were really long, and I had a weird triangular piece at the strap that was once attached to the sheer material so I cut the sidebar down to close to where it attaches to the cup and re-attached the straps there.

    I really love the result. The cups are still too wide, but the band fits better, the gore tacks, the cups are slightly too closed at the center but fine everywhere else. The cups are the right height for me. The shape is nice and round and look great under clothes, even knits. Now I just want to find a good gorenament that will cover the surgery lines there.

      I feel opposite about "huge" wires. I need every millimeter of them, especially width. 😀 Love the Caitlyn/Cate/Rita styles.

      dfe98we I have a bunch of really big and tall wires I can send you if you want to replace any in your bras! Just let me know the minimum width and I'll send you loads of them!

    • cupandahalf , that is kind of you, but I am not much for sewing and altering. :\

      No worries, I'd just like to get them out of the house, lol.
