There was an interesting conversation that was started in the thread of another post on the Bra Making Forum that I’d like to continue.
It was about the difficulty of developing patterns for underserved bra populations. (I don’t like the word plus size much it always made me feel like shit when I was bigger)
What made me think was the topic of variance. As something increases in volume it can take on a whole variety of shapes that will be different from consumer to consumer
So what I wonder if like with the figure over all, where we have established pear/apple/banana shapes for the body and companies both fashion and patterns cater for these sizes if we could discuss what’s out there and maybe it’ll inspire the next generation of pattern drafters and designers to start thinking about this market.
Just a thought that has been running through my head all day.
