What can you do when the only foam cups in your size really aren’t the style you want? Today we had exactly that dilemma presented by a student in Boob Camp. The only cup that fit her was the balconette style in the size 52 (which means it is close to a 38G, or a 42F ) however the cup was very high under the arm and in the front so it was not a flattering line.
I really felt we could improve the fit of this cup if we did a bit of surgery (not on our student, but on her bra cups!)
But before I share that with you, here’s a tip for keeping the Lefts and Rights of a Balconette cup from getting mixed up when you are working with them. They really are hard to tell apart..left from right and some people have trouble telling top from bottom. Can you guess which side this is? Here’s a hint – the shallow curve is the top curve so the cup is correct top to bottom.
and now the outy…definitely not the way we want this to look!
I’ll take more photos as the week progresses, so you can follow along as we make this bra.
