Lining a bra

denisesews1 | Posted in Fabric Guidance on

I’ve been trying to find a really soft lightweight fabric to line my fancy bras that are now uncomfortable to wear because the lace or lining is scratchy. I ordered what was supposed to be a lightweight fabric from a  bra supply shop but the weave makes it rough. I’d like something that’s soft and stretchy, so if anyone has ideas, I’d appreciate your input. My skin has gotten very sensitive with age and these bras were bought in Paris and they’re  beautiful and fit, they’re just not comfortable.

    Try nylon tricot. It comes in many colors (and dyes nicely if you need different color) and is slightly stretchy.

    I agree with the nylon tricot. I line the back and lower cup of most of the bras I make and that is what I like. Very soft on the skin.

    Thank you. That's what I bought from the bra place and it's light but the weave is too rough.

    I spoke to the bra supply store and they sent me lingerie knit not tricot, so she's sending me a sample of tricot to be certain it'll work. Thank you for your suggestions.

    If you knew how many women are wrong about their bra size, you would be surprised. And you can even check yourself if you are wearing the right size https://thefluencewoman.com/ortorex-wireless-bra-posture-corrector/. If you do not know how to define the correct size, find a video on YouTube how to take measurements and recheck yourself. And then share your findings.

    Can anyone recommend a good wicking sports bra? I have tried many different brands, but they do not wick or dry as quickly as my other dry/tech type clothing. I usually take it off at night along with my day clothes and only sleep and relax in my night clothes. In the cool early mornings, the sports bra is still damp.
