Viva is an underwire bra with classic Type 1 underwires. The two-piece bust cups have horizontal seams. The bottom part of the cups and the front band are lined with corset mesh. The top edge at the back is finished with strap elastic. All other edges are finished with picot-edge band elastic. The bra features adjustable straps made of strap elastic and has a hook-and-eye closure.

Model Alyona: Height 175 cm (5’9”), Bust 95 cm (37 3/8”), Underbust 80 cm (31 1/2”), Waist 75 cm (29 1/2”), Hips 96 cm (37 3/4”). Alyona is wearing size 80C.

Approximate sewing time – 1 day (8 hours).

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, guipure lace, embroidered mesh.

For the bust cup and front band lining, we recommend corset mesh.

You can determine the stretch factor of the 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 soft stretch lace. The fiber content is 93% polyamide + 7% elastane. The fabric weight is 90 g/m2. 

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

Important! We recommend using specialty needles when working with knit fabrics and elastic (for example, STRETCH, SUPER STRETCH, JERSEY, etc.). These are ballpoint needles, so they part the threads of the fabric you are stitching rather than piercing them.
