Match the top non picot edge of the plush elastic with the top edge of the sewn in elastic. These bralettes are very comfortable and forgiving. On the other hand, I have many responses of bralette fans!
If you live in a hot climate like I do, summer presents a problem, and that problem is boob sweat. Structured bras like the ones I wear in cooler months become underwire suction cups for collecting sweat, not to mention the extra layers contributing to the hot problem.
And the alteration takes me less than 15 minutes per bralette. How can XS, S and M all accommodate a 32 band size? Go with the XS and I hope you like boobs hanging out on all sides of the cup fabric. You can order one size up from your general size to have enough fabric for your larger bust and then make the band size smaller and get a pretty decent fit, which is what I now do.
The other thing I hate about bralettes is pulling them on over my head. But you can still ad the elastic. Then lay the elastic plush side up on top of the puny elastic that came in the bralette. Match the top non picot edge of the plush elastic with the top edge of the sewn in elastic. Using a zig-zag stitch on your machine, sew the plush elastic over the old elastic, stretching your plush elastic until it lays flat against the bra.
As you can see below, this will pull in the band size, and the wider elastic is more supportive. Bra hook closures have flaps on the ends that you and open to insert the bra in between. Stick your new bra band in between the flaps of the eye piece on the left side of the bra with the eyes and bra right side facing up. Use a zig-zag stitch to stitch the eye piece to your bra, zig-zagging right over the edge.
Repeat this process with the right side of your bra and the hook piece, with the bra right side up and the hooks facing down. Now that I have several of these, summer bra wearing is just a little less painful.
That was really interesting, as someone who has just successfully made an underwire bra that fits after 3 tries, I have thought about trying a bralette — very creative!
