In Progress: Supportive Chemise

Note: If you know me personally and/or may be adversely affected by the direct and open way I need to address the topic of my breasts and their shape in this project, I suggest you turn back now. I'll post a similar notice when I believe the project has progressed enough that it might not be as awkward. 

I've begun the process of adjusting my pattern, and while I've corrected some things, other issues have appeared. I'm not going to sugar coat it. It's very frustrating.

In Progress: New Supportive Chemise

Note: If you know me personally and/or may be adversely affected by the direct and open way I need to address the topic of my breasts and their shape in this project, I suggest you turn back now. I'll post a similar notice when I believe the project has progressed enough that it might not be as awkward.

Alright?

Still with me?

In US bra sizing, I'm a 40L. I believe that translates to HH in UK sizing. The L translates to a bust-to-underbust difference of 12". I also have what's knows as "kissing breasts" that like to travel to the middle for a party. If I want my breasts to be separated, there's a lot of engineering involved, which my boobs would probably laugh at anyway. If there's any chance for the breasts to come together, they will take it. So, in general, I tend to look for solutions that allow my boobs to combine their powers in the middle, but not so much so that an actual uni-boob occurs. I want to aim for a nice, even spread across my bust for the best look.
