We are experimenting this winter with a duo of similar but contrasting prints that we call Sun Valley, named for America's first "Destination Ski Resort". Ski resorts are always a favorite winter destination and our new Sun Valley prints, are perfect for winter lingerie whether you are going skiing or not! 

Our beautiful Sun Valley Mountains print is digitally printed on soft and dreamy bamboo jersey and it makes a darling bralette. You might not want to put on an underwired bra, you might want to wear a lounge bralette instead. There are so many darling bralette patterns out there, and bralettes are a great option for many women. Whether you like wearing bralettes as your standard choice or if you want an option to wear around the house, you can make just what you want with our comprehensive bralette kits.  Choose one of our custom accent colors for your elastics and we think you will be thrilled with the results! You may choose from Glacier, French Blue, Golden, Storm and Buttermilk.

These kits are offered with our sporty Sun Valley Mountains bamboo jersey print. This fabric is soft and stretchy, and for more support you'll want to use some sort of a base fabric layer to add support on the back band, which is what the Power Mesh or Power Net are in the kit to do. This is a fabric that can be used for that extra something that these fabrics will give unless your support level is very light. Sometimes you still want a little more and for that we offer the option to add a kit cut of Spacer Foam in Frost or Midnight.

Spacer foam is about 1/16" thick, is lightweight but substantial, breathable, and has a 4-way stretch. It is a different fabric than a cut and sew foam, which is thicker and primarily suitable for a lining only. For support, you would use it like any Lycra fabric, cutting it so that there is a little bit of negative ease. I remove the seam allowances within the cup and butt the seams together. Then I sew them together with a 3-step zigzag, running a piece of tissue paper under the fabric while I sew so that it doesn't creep on me. I keep the seam allowances on the band side and sew it into the band just like I would any other fabric.

There are 3 levels of support available. All three levels of support include a stable sheer lining for the front frame. For light support we offer a light, buttery power mesh to line the back band under the print. For medium support we offer medium weight power net to line the back band. For strong support we offer firm weight power net to line the back band in addition to Regular Weight Power Net for under the cups. If you prefer to line your cup, pop on over to our listing for Regular Weight Power Net.

For elastics, we offer either a foldover elastics option or a picot elastics option, and vary the weight of the elastics to correspond with the level of support. For reference, the Watson bralette uses picot elastic and the Sweet Sixteen bralette uses foldover elastic.

For a wired bra find our Sun Valley Mountains Bra Kit here. Or make a darling pair of Sun Valley Mountains Panties to match your Sun Valley Mountains Bralette!
