There are so many darling bralette patterns out there, and bralettes are a great option for many women. Whether you like wearing bralettes as you 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. 

These kits feature spacer foam for the cups, which can be dyed to any of our 18 colors. Typically, spacer foam dyes lighter and whiter than our elastics and other fabrics, and it is a darling option when paired with a fun print, or even with a solid microlycra. 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. 

These kits are offered with lycra prints. This fabric is stretchy, and 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. There are 3 levels of support available. All three levels of support include a stable sheer lining for the frame. For light support we offer a light, buttery power mesh to line the back band under the print or microlycra. 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. The spacer foam can be used alone in the cup, but some might want to line the cup with either power mesh or medium power net to add some extra support. Pop on over to the listing for these fabrics to add a kit cut if you'd like to line your spacer foam cup.

We also 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. We're showing the Watson in the Green Boho print with Seafoam Spacer Foam and the Sweet Sixteen (as featured in Threads magazine) in the Spring print and Seafoam Spacer Foam. The Watson uses picot elastics and the Sweet Sixteen uses foldover elastics.
