DETERMINING YOUR SIZE + CHOOSING A MONOWIRE
To determine your band size, measure around your chest directly under your breasts, keeping the tape measure snug and level. Then refer to size chart in product photos. To determine your cup size, measure your chest at the fullest part of your breasts. Subtract your band size from this number. Then refer to size chart in product photos.
The underwear is true to size, but the band size for the bralette runs small. If you wear a 34B, suggest to cut a 36B. Refer to the chart below to see how the sizes of the 8711 compares to the sizes of other Madalynne patterns (i.e. Barrett bralette).
Once you know your size, choose the appropriate a monowire. Suggest to buy the size you will be making, and one size up and down. A lot can happen during sewing – you may trim here or cut down something there, which could affect the size of the monowire. Click here to purchase additional monowire separately.
International shipping is available. If you live outside the United States, choose the international shipping option at checkout. All payment and shipping information can be found here.
