DEMYSTIFYING BRA FITTING AND CONSTRUCTION PDF

So much for the calendar saying Spring. Sigh, the pattern. I got the short wires from Bra Makers Supply. Another great! That worked well too. So I have my correct bridge shape.

Home sewing seems to have made somewhat of resurgence in recent years — everywhere you look, there are guides and how-to projects on how to make everything from dresses to cushion covers. Whilst there are plenty of books, magazines and websites dedicated to clothing and home improvement sewing projects, bras have been left conspicuously behind.

They feature some of the most precise and varied sewing operations in a single garment, with at least around 30 individual parts to each garment. I recently finished a three-year degree specialising in lingerie. However, before I began my course, I remember scouring the internet for books that would help me get to grips with lingerie construction. Unfortunately, I found quite a lot of issues with this book as a resource for bra-construction newbies.

To give the short review, I found it to be simultaneously over-complicating and over-simplistic, though peppered with useful tips. Whilst there is a lot of useful information shared in this book, particularly with regards to the basics of bra construction which are not readily available, I also found that there was quite a lot of misinformation. My opinion of this book got off to a fairly rocky start. In my personal experience, these reasons can only be true once you are highly experienced in sewing bras, highly experienced in lingerie pattern cutting, and able to purchase lingerie-specific fabrics and components in bulk.

In any of these situations, it is highly unlikely that you would look to a book like this for help. Nevertheless, this book does offer a lot of useful tips. The basics are covered very accurately — Loehr clearly explains a variety of different lingerie components and their different functions, with illustrations alongside. I particularly appreciate the depth that she goes into with regards to lingerie fabric, explaining their handling and how this can affect bra fit.

There are some excellent tips on how to customise a bra pattern to fit your own body. As I mentioned before, I found this book a little limiting in what it had to offer. It refers to few cup shapes, limited mostly to a horizontal seamed two-part cup construction though it also gives instructions on how to split the bottom cup for a more rounded shape. It also only refers to soft fabric cups, with no reference to how to construct foam bras or how to use moulded cups.

There are also certain assumptions about bra components particularly bra wires that I find a little unrealistic for a bra newbie. I also found the book a little difficult to read at times — the text could get long-winded and difficult to follow, and could certainly benefit from some editing. It is certainly a step in the right direction in an area that is so woefully lacking in information.

Readers: have you ever tried to make a bra? Would you consider buying this book?

Lingerie Book Review: Demystifying Bra Fitting & Construction by Norma Loehr

I regularly meet women who are in the midst of creating couture garments who are frankly intimidated to go near a bra making project. Initially I felt the same way. When I started making bras several years ago I aggressively searched for and collected everything I could find on the topic. I found very little. Making bras seemed to be some sort of closely guarded black art. Bra makers seem to jealously protect their secrets almost as if it fell into the wrong hands it would be used for evil.
