When we were creating the resources for our Lingerie Sewing Class (which includes The Celine Bralette and Anäis Undies) we created a downloadable guide to help you with fitting bras and undies. Today we are excited to make that resrouce available to everyone, not just students of the class! While they use Celine + Anais as examples, they will be helpful for fitting all sorts of bralettes, bras and undies, regardless of the pattern.

Fitting our most delicate bits and pieces is extra important and there is nothing worse than digging elastic or an unsupportive support garment. There is a lot to learn when it comes to bra fitting and the intricacies of cup sizes can be a challenge, but we wanted to help you with the basics so you can get the most out of your me-made intimates. A lot of bra fitting (well, all fitting really) is trial and error but hopefully, this guide will help cut down on the troubleshooting time and get you into perfectly fitting underwear that much sooner!

Common Fit Adjustments

These downloadable PDF guides will help you to identify and diagnose common fit issues for bras and undies. From adding fullness to areas or removing excess fabric, we'll help you notice where fit could be improved and how to make these easy adjustments. Once you have a sense of the changes you need to make you'll be able to custom tailor patterns to your specific needs. Imagine having your most intimate apparel fit you without compromise, and the ability to batch sew multiples every time your underwear drawer needs a freshen... that is the power of sewing your own lingerie!
