also slides so the straps can adjust, underwires, and channeling.

I have just learnt how to make bras and knickers.

But I have found it difficult to obtain plush elastic for banding and strapping and the rings and sliders and channelling for my project here in the UK.
The only things I can get it in is black or white. We dont have anywhere where I can buy it either on line or out shopping unless you buy from china in bulk.
Can you suggest where I can get it in rich beautiful colours e.g. red, green, royal blue, orange, cerise etc....

all those beautiful rich colours and pastel colours. If I find something say in canada etc there is a large postage fee. Does any one know where i could get it in UK.

I want to have beautiful colours in my bras, not boring black and white!

Thank you,
Kym
