Welcome to the sixth post of “The Complete Guide to Bra Making” series. This post contains a list of 25 underwire bra patterns to get you started in bra making.

In general, I stuck with underwire bra patterns that are popular and well-loved by the bra making community. This is so you can find further information in the form of tutorials or blog posts on any of the bra patterns you choose to google. This also means that the Instagram hashtags are populated with photos of completed bra projects by other makers, which should give you plenty of inspiration for your own bra making projects.

Note: Beginner friendly patterns or patterns that have ample instructions or tutorials are designated with “beginner friendly”. Patterns that are free are also indicated.
