Being above a D cup can be really frustrating when its about bralettes.

Choosing all the beautiful laces shrinks to neverending hunting for enough support

And all this trouble doubles when you try to make a cute front closure bralette.


Sounds familiar?

The truth is:

Making the front closure bralette that works even for larger breasts is hard.


Your bra needs some structural integrity and foundation to work the way you want.


If you remove a huge amount of fabric from the middle of your bra,

and keep just the bottom band,

it will affect the fit and you will lose the support. 


That's why I want to share with you, that you can
add a front closure to a bralette pattern without losing support

All you need is a good-fitting bralette pattern that gives you enough support.




You are able to make a front closure bralette using two or more G hooks or front closures

You can decide based on the design or required support.
