I was tired of spilling out of my still newly purchased maternity bras that cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $40 each. Plus in my weird size of big boobs but still small everywhere else, the only color available was black. Which is fine but not if it is your only bra color. I remembered one morning a great article in Sew News demonstrating how to adjust bras to fit. Why couldn't I use this to find a perfectly fitting 'maternity bra'. So I whistled my way down to wal-mart and pick out a fistful of bras in cup sizes that fit, no caring in the least about the band size (I tried to get the smallest possible, not picking a 40'' band when a 38'' was available, for example) and purchased them. It seems that with this technique I could get 3-4 bras for the price of one maternity bra. At home, I basted a tuck between the clasp and the strap and tried it on. Once I got the fit, I went back and sewed the tuck on either side for reinforcement. Voila, my new bras were done. It took me about 30 min to sew 4 bras and I have never felt better in a t-shirt (having 2 breast is so much more comfortable than 4). Now sleeping in a different story...Hello 3rd trimester.
