how to measure for your size

Measure in your best fitting wired or wireless bra.

Full Bust: Place your measuring tape at the fullest part of your bust, measure around your entire body, keeping the tape parallel to the ground. If you fall between whole numbers, choose the larger of the two.

Ribcage: Place your measuring tape at the bottom of your imframammary fold, commonly known as your breast root or wireline. Measure around your entire body, keeping the tape parallel to the ground. This measurements will be your BAND size. If you fall between whole numbers, choose the smaller of the two.

Your Sahaara Size: Subtract your Ribcage measurement from your Full Bust measurement. The difference will indicate your CUP size. Then, just put your Band and Cup sizes together to determine your Sahaara Bra Size!

For example, if you have a 28" ribecage and a 34" full bust, the difference would be 34" - 28" = 6", making you an E cup. Therefore your Sahaara Size will be 28E.

If you are familiar with the BCD (bottom cup depth) nipple to wireline measurement, then an E cup is a 4.25 which might help you as a baseline.

If you are in between sizes in cups, round up. If you are in between sizes in band, round down if your band is less than 36 inches, and round up if your band is 36 inches or higher.

Fabulous pattern

Really pleased with the bra I made from this pattern, looks great, really comfortable, and surprisingly supportive. Thorough instructions that are easy to follow. I had a query on the sizing and an adjustment and got a swift and helpful response - excellent customer service. Highly recommended, the only bralette pattern you need. I will be making several more.

Great Patter

This was my first bra pattern. I am an experienced clothes sewist but this is the first time I am doing bras. The pattern practically fit right from the start. I already made my second with some different finishings to see which I prefer. It's just a great and easy pattern if you're getting started. I would highly recommend it.

Sahaara bra

First I made the 36G fully lined with Lycra on the outside and cup lining. The bra went together very well. The instructions were good. The band was too big and the Lycra was not taut enough. My bad. Otherwise it fit well.
Then I made the 34G. I missed a step so I didn't hide the seams around the cup. It wears nicely.
I then tried the 34H in black Selenise with a lace front cup. It fit me better but I didn't pull the elastic enough so had gaping.
My next one will be 34H. This is an easy pattern to follow. I put a bow on the bridge when I didn't quite get it right. However when I marked 6mm at each side of bridge for cups to meet it worked perfectly.
I did find Rubies Bras videos and LizSews videos very helpful.
I'll definitely make it again and again.
