I was so inspired by this 1930′s strapless bra from the Victoria & Albert museum that I decided I needed to make something similar, but with straps.
This is what I came up with. It has similar lines to the 1930′s era bra, but is less structured. It is fully lined, but does not have any boning or wires. I might add stitching lines like on the cups of the 1930′s era version.
I used plush back elastic around the band to make it more comfortable, and a modern bra back closure on the back. It is a very comfortable bra, one of my favourites! I absolutely love the seam lines of this bra, it contours so naturally!
I have more info about this bra, and a few other pieces I am working on over on my Blog! Thanks for looking
