Just that really. Anyone made a bra and tips on how to go about measuring etc to do it. I got sent a link to a USA online make your own bra class and was curious. My big bras cost £30+ each so wondering if I'd get a better fit and quality doing it myself smile

I've done it. It sort of worked, the main problem was that I'm well-endowed and the materials and fabrics I could get hold of weren't really heavy duty enough so I couldn't make it as supportive as I'd like. I'd recommend the bra makers manual as the best book on the subject and sewing chest are good for supplies

Thanks rose I think I'd struggle with materials too. I just got inspired after being sent the link smile

This forum has a whole section on underwear and a couple of threads with loads of information about bra may be worth a look.

Not sure if you're still thinking of making one but sells corset and bra making supplies. Service is excellent.
