To sew this bra, choose knit fabrics with the following properties: 

− soft, stretchy (1.2–1.5 stretch factor), medium weight 

− the following fabrics are recommended: stretch mesh, microfiber jersey, stretch lace

For the bridge and band lining, we recommend using corset mesh.

You can determine the stretch factor of your fabric yourself. Mark 10 cm (4") along the crosswise grain of the fabric, lay a ruler next to the marked section, and stretch the fabric. Divide the measurement you get by 10.

The bra in the photo is made of soft stretch mesh. The fiber content is 93% polyamide and 7% elastane. The fabric weight is 90 g/m2.

The bridge and band are lined with non-stretch corset mesh. The fiber content is 100% polyamide. The fabric weight is 45 g/m2.
