Swim Cup Foam Padding
Customers larger than a C cup understand the frustration of trying to buy swim cups. Make your own perfect fitting swim cups from your bra pattern, with our Swim Cup Foam Padding. No more cups that sag, droop or not quite cover! The Foam Padding is Chlorine resistant and quick drying.
The Swim Cup Foam Padding is made from 100% polyester and is 28-30″(71-75 cm) wide and is approximately 1/8″ (3mm) thick. The Foam Padding does have some mechanical give in the crosswise direction. The padding dries quickly, making it ideal to use in every type of swimwear – from bikinis to competitive swimwear, dance wear, skating costumes, and everything in between. The Swim Cup Foam Padding is often used between a cover fabric and a lining fabric, but customers also use it without any lining, worn directly against the skin (for swimwear).
Customers use this versatile, yet inexpensive foam as a base for making costumes. This fabric is used to make Elizabethan ruffs, stiffened with boning or as the foundation for Minion costumes. If you are in the costume business, our foam linings are essential. Although our foam linings all feature different characteristics, they keep their shape, accept stitching with ease, and wash and dry quickly.
Bra-makers Tip – For small sizes such as AAA, AA and A, simply mould the foam over a ham with the heat of an iron, then cut to shape. To make larger cups, trim the seam allowances from the cross cup seam, using your regular bra cup pattern. Then, butt the two raw edges of the padding together and stitch across them with a zig-zag stitch.
