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

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

The following fabrics are recommended: lace, allover lace fabrics, embroidered mesh, guipure lace. The fabric should have a scalloped edge.

For the band lining, we recommend 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 photos is made of stretch mesh. The fabric is soft and stretchy. The fiber content is 93% polyamide and 7% elastane. The fabric weight is 80 g/m2. 

The front band lining is made of corset mesh. The fabric is non-stretch. The fiber content is 100% polyamide. The fabric weight is 45 g/m2.
