How to Fit a Bust

Threads magazine - 124 – April/May 2006
Article Image

Evening gowns, prom dresses, wedding gowns, sundresses, and halter tops require specialized bust support. There are ways to shape the breasts, establish a beautiful silhouette, and secure the needed support so that you are assured that everything stays invisibly positioned without any tugging. On these occasions, you’re usually showing a little more skin. Don’t fit to the bosom you possess, fit to the bosom you want.

Most breasts also require support or lift, which calls for tension against the body to work, something like a suspension bridge. Learn how to establish the tension you need for the best lift.

You can use these methods in ready-made garments as well as in those you sew. Ideally, you should decide your method of establishing shape and foundation before you cut out your garment fabric

Fabric stores and online sources sell the notions you’ll need, but a waist stay is custom-made.
