Sizing Information

Bras

There is no single measurement method to determine bra size what bra size will work for every body. The only reliable way to determine bra size is to try on finished bras made from that pattern. Given the bra sizing challenge, we recommend starting by making your ready-to-wear size.

If you do not have a ready-to-wear size or at a loss for what size to start with, we offer the below sizing guidelines for our bra sewing patterns. If you have any sizing questions, feel free to contact us!

  • When taking measurements, be sure to stand up straight and exhale fully.
  • Measure body circumference directly under the bust with the tape measure parallel to floor. Round the measurement to the nearest inch, rounding down if you are at the ½” mark.This is the band size.
  • Measure body circumference at the fullest part of the bust while wearing a bra that is supportive yet made of a relatively thin fabric. Again, keep the tape measure parallel to the floor.
  • Derive cup size by subtracting the band size from the full bust measurement. Consult the chart below to find cup size. For example, if the full bust is 36″ and the band size is 34″, the difference is 2″. Based on the cup size chart above, this difference corresponds to a B cup. If you are in between sizes, use the larger size.

SISTER SIZES

Sister sizes are bra sizes that have the same bra cup volume and underwire size. The difference between sister sizes is the size of the band. For example, the sizes 30D, 32C, 34B and 36A all have the same cup volume and use the same underwire. The difference between those sizes is the band. This blog post has instructions for how to modify the band to reach the sister sizes on this table.

Details

For the Devonshire bra I wanted to create beautiful uplift with delicate lace. The first thing I think of for uplift from a bra are the cup seams and the underwire. Vertical seams are great for uplift and the result of the cup structure with the lace scallop edge is just gorgeous!

 

The Devonshire bra is a supportive underwire bra featuring:

  • A two-piece vertically seamed cup that allows for beautiful shaping; 
  • A cup that can be constructed using lace or fabric;
  • A full supportive frame; and
  • A design that is compatible with use with foam as well as a variety of trim options.

 

Notable Pattern Features:

  • An instantly downloadable PDF pattern.
  • No taping required! All pattern pieces except for the strap fit entirely inside the printable space of US Letter or A4 size paper. For printing ease, each size is grouped together.
  • All pattern pieces are separate, not nested, and clearly show the seam allowance and/or trim allowance as applicable. This allows for construction clarity and simplifies any pattern alterations.
  • The instructions are professionally illustrated, making the seemingly complex steps of bra construction very clear and easy to understand.
  • This pattern was graded by professionals who send their output directly into production so you can be extra confident that you have a great starting point for your garment.

 

Size Range:

Available in either A to DD or DDD to J size ranges for 30 to 40 band sizes. Please select the correct size! 

Printing Note:

  • Find your size to select which pages to print. The complete document has over 100 pages.
