FINALLY! A place that has patterns for bras! I am tired of not finding the perfect bra for me. I’m very large breasted. No one seems to take into account that I need support on the SIDES as well as in the front. My straps CONSTANTLY fall down, which I’m guessing is due to not high enough back support. Or something. My “side boobs” always get cut at the middle which makes every bra I own uncomfortable. I’m in the US and this seems to be for non-US sizes. So how do I figure out which pattern to download? Are stretch materials really the best options as I want the bra to be comfortable and not “cut me off”. I find stretchy materials to be itchy. If I make it to mold to my body shape then stretchy shouldn’t be necessary, should it? What would be a good material to use if stretchy isn’t mandatory so that I don’t feel hot under my breasts? I have considered underwire, but I’m not sure how much I need that if I make a bra to hold my breasts up. Any information is going to be extremely useful! Thanks!
I classified myself as novice as I’ve only picked up sewing again recently. I made my own corset from beginning to end, for back support but I put in too long of boning and it pokes me. Now I can’t find it.

I understood that the first US BurdaStyle quarterly issue came with some code to access…
How many replies does this post need to be implimented? This is an awesome idea!
Burda has a video class you can watch on grading up or down any size if you want to pay…
you can grade the pattern if you take the difference needed for the size you want….
