[BAW29]: Grey Bamboo T-Shirt Bra

Jul 17, 2016 | Bra Makes | 9 comments

Hi All!!
After my last make  was so  super lacy and pretty delicate, I felt like something a little more practical, a everyday.
For my everyday I like a bra that’s SUPER comfy, which for me means: some gorgeous foam lining, super soft bamboo, fold over elastic, bliss wires, 3/4″ straps, and a 3X3 hook and eye in the back!

I LOVE this bra, and I was instantly inspired to make it after I made these boyshorts back in May! To me it’s a very comfy and simple chic set!  I drew inspiration from brands like Calvin Klein who have a more ‘athletic and boyish’ chic 🙂

For extra comfort I  made sure to have my wide straps and 3X3 hook and eye, which I love, even if it’s not the norm for my size. I think it looks cooler for this style!

To keep in a more RTW look and with the grey bamboo theme, I covered not only the front frame, but also the back band with the bamboo, so it was uninterrupted all the way around, which I LOVE.

I took this exact cup pattern from the Black Beauty bra (one of my all-time favs), omitted the powerbar, and redesigned the upper cup to have a strap attachment point.

I LOVE the horizontal seams on this bra, I think they give a really clean and simple look 🙂

And the inside is just as simple, with some soft microfiber laminated foam, 15 denier lining for the frame, and white powernet lining on the back.

I think there’s something so fresh about this set. Don’t get me wrong, I love a little delicate lacy set, but something about a more boyish plain set like this makes me super happy 🙂

And of course, this must round up with some Gibby snuggles 🙂

What do you think about this new set? Are you more simple sporty chic or a more delicate lace lover? I feel like I’m a style chameleon that way- I just love a bit of everything!

Hope you’re all having an amazing weekend!

    Hi Erin, beautiful set today! I love both the sporty sets and the lacy sets as well. The set you're wearing today almost seems like it might serve as a good workout bra for the smaller bust sizes, especially because of the wider straps and 3×3 hook set. Regardless, it's lovely!

      Yes I can definitely see that – since it's nice and full-coverage 🙂 It's so comfy! Thanks Andrea!!

    It looks sooo comfy!! And very "Calvin Klein" 😉 I like to change my lingerie style once in a while too, but I still lean more towards the lacy kind 😛

    PS: I'm so jealous of your fold-over elastic sewing skills! 🙂

      Thanks Sofia! I feel like I'm still figuring out my lingerie style all the time 🙂 I guess that just means I need to build more drawers for my lingerie 🙂
