It may not be for folks who are looking for more then a very lite version of sewing lingerie. For folks interested in really getting serious with involved lingerie sewing they need to look to someone like Beverly Johnson, Norma Loher, Jennifer Lynne Matthews, Kristina Shin or a list of others who give a more technical education on lingerie sewing. But this would be a lovely book to flip through for inspiration.

Especially as there is definitely no one model suits all when it comes to bras :)

I also picked up a very expensive pair of knickers that transformed the way I look in my ratty my blue jeans completely! I’m on the lookout for resources on making other supportive undergarments too.

As I mentioned in the fourth paragraph sizing goes up to a 34D and I mentioned it does not cover underwired bras in the projects. May I suggest the Bra Makers Manual by Beverly Johnson or Bare Essentials By Jennifer Lynne and Matthews Fairbanks. I’ve also read good reviews on Demystifying Bra Fitting and Construction by Norma Loehr but have not read this one myself.

Comment on Introducing Yasmin Joseph Lingerie: Step-In Bras by Laurie http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/12/introducing-yasmin-joseph-lingerie-step-bras.html#comment-1070805 Thu, 11 Dec 2014 22:45:35 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=33090#comment-1070805 Hi Breonie, I’m thinking these are probably like wiggling into good shapewear. Though hopefully not requiring too much wiggle as that would defeat the purpose of eliminating those annoying bra fasteners. It wouldn’t make sense to trade one hassle for another!

Comment on Incanto Lingerie A/W 2014/15 by Laurie http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/2014/12/incanto-lingerie-aw-201415.html#comment-1070793 Thu, 11 Dec 2014 22:43:38 +0000 http://www.thelingerieaddict.com/?p=33295#comment-1070793 Hi Honey, I so wish these would make it stateside! I haven’t heard anything to suggest that the brand is moving in that direction, though we can hope! If we’re ever lucky enough to make it to Italy, we’ll have to visit one of their boutiques for sure :)

A slightly more interesting hem would go a long way to elevate the style. I didn’t notice it as much for on the Dottie’s Delights jumper, probably because the legs were much fuller. It’s the little details that go a long way :)

I think it’s such a great idea, though, for women who struggle with physical challenge that make fastening a bra difficult.
