Bamboo Bra & Panty Sets

May 14, 2017 | Bra Makes | 5 comments

Hi All!   I don’t know if you remember the Grey Foam & Bamboo bra set that I made last July- but it has been a permanent part of my regular bra rotation- so I thought it was time to add a couple more to my wardrobe, because if you’re going to make one set- you might as well make two 🙂 And in the spirit of #SewPantyParty I made sure to make the matching panties!

I wanted to add something a little more pretty and girly to my rotation for the first set- so you can’t go wrong with a little blush/black combo- it’s also so chic and feminine! And of course, the panties had to be high waisted with bows 🙂


And, of course, I wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to make yourself something similar- so I came out with the Bamboo and Foam Bra & Panty Kits! , which you can find in my Etsy Shop

What I love is that there are so many colour options that can make the same bra look completely different! So for the next one I took inspiration from a bra that a good friend of mine made 🙂 with a lovely bright coral with latte findings 🙂


And I felt like this set suited a nice bikini style panty 🙂



And of course, this is the exact same self-drafted pattern from last year, with a horizontal seam, bliss underwire and upper cup attachment. It’s amazing how it can look so different in different colours 🙂 I love the smooth look and comfort of the foam lined cups, and the nice clean edge of fold over elastic!



Always a treat for Gibby!



I’m so happy with how my new sets turned out- they’re going to be absolute staples in my bra rotation. I can’t wait to think of more colour options with these foam & bamboo kits!


What is your favourite style of bra? Do you like using foam in your cups?

I love to hear from you!





— Also! Don’t forget to send your makes in for Bra News at the end of the month! I love to see what you’re making!!

    They look great Erin! I’ve yet to use foam in my own bras which is ridiculous as most of my RTW have it. The fit on these are great and I love love love the coral version!

    These look great! Once I’ve mastered unlined underwire bras I think I would like to try making some with foam. Thanks for the inspiration!

      Thanks Hillary! Foam is my favourite! It’s a great next step in bra making 🙂

    Really nice looking sets, Erin! I finished 3 bras this month, and I hope to blog about them this week…. when’s your cut-off for Bra News?

      Thanks Chloe! You can send in your sets anytime, there is no real time limit- but if you send them in soon they will definitely be in the May round up! xo
