This kit is just perfect for Valentine's Day, and is lovely any day of the year! The soft pink is a bit warmer than the Whisper Pink of the Innocence kit and a bit cooler than the warm, coral-y pink of Rosy Glow. The beautiful silk ribbon running along the top edge adds a feeling of the romantic, although you can certainly leave it off for a more tailored look. I like this kit with everything in Valentine Pink, but you can also have a striking bra with a black band and/or black elastics. Please leave a note if you want some of your kit black and I'll make it happen :). 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. 

These kits come in a variety of options. You can choose spacer foam, microlycra, or crushed velvet. Typically, spacer foam dyes lighter and whiter than our elastics and other fabrics. 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. You can add your lace to the band, to one part of the cup or all over the cup, it's your choice. The lace is not a stretch lace, so you'll want to account for that in your sizing, and you wouldn't want to use it on the back of the band since that needs some stretch.

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 and add regular weight power net for inside the cups. Any of the fabrics 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. This comes standard on the Super Support option. It's probably not necessary on the light support option.

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. Your elastics will be in Valentine Pink unless you specify a different color. Please note that the extra wide elastic will be available later in February and is perfect for the Barrett Bralette from Madalynne. It will have its own listing.
