So one of the few dilemnas we face when making breast padded bodice outfits for female clients is bust size. Some women are gravely blessed at the chest compartment that it is almost difficult to get that measure of blessing accurately, if you know what I mean.

The first time I attempted to make a breast padded outfit for a busty client, I failed miserably. However, as time went by, I started to realize my mistakes and I’m here to share with you the few tips I’ve discovered on how to perfectly sew breast padded outfits for the busties.

TAKE ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS

  1. Make sure she is wearing a bra. This helps you get the bust point accurately and also an idea of how her bust should look when padded.
  2. Add additional seam allowance of 2-4 inches in the case where you have to slash because it is better you have more allowances to adjust with than when you have none whatsoever. This can be disastrous

Often times, busties complain alot about their breast padded outfits, even when it is fitted, it always seem to lose structure somehow. This is why it is advisable to use already-made or custom made breast cups or foams. It helps to add structure and firm to the padded bodice.

INCLUDE INTERFACING

In addition to using the breast pads or cup, include fusible interfacing to the wrong side of your fabric at the bust region.

Where you must include lining to your fabric, insert interfacing to the wrong side of the lining as well. These will all help to structure and firm to the bodice.

Interfacing is also known as either gumstay or airstay in Nigeria.
