    deleted my last comment because i found the sizes…

    so i have tried this 2x in 2 different types of fabric i feel like the sizes are off. made a 34 size & it is really not very flattering on, might be too small- more like a 32"… makes the boobs look like they are flattened out & sagging…

    the center points are too close together, does not look like the photo. the straps i tried 2 different ways, they are too far over to the sides in the armpit & look strange, i tried to make it tie around the neck, it is better but had to move the straps closer in to get it to work. the 2nd one i had to make the bottom underbust part longer because it is too short & hides under your boobs, next time i am going to make it even longer to get this look….

    i will let you know how my alterations work & if it does i will take a pic, but it’s way to not right the way it is to take pics of it on…

    Before buying the pattern I’d be curious to know how supportive it is – I’d imagine underwires would make it easier to wear and help stop the straps being strained.

      That is a good point. I’m working on a muslin now (I’ll need a lot of alteration as I am much larger than a B cup. I just recently trashed an old bra and scavenged the wires and rings so I think I’ll try to add some underwire to this if I get that far along.

      I found the answer above in “Description”. Click on “FAQ” entry and it is explained there.

    this has so much potential! would it need underwires?
