Hi guys, today’s post is on the Madalynne x Simplicity 8229 Underwire Bra. It actually took me a while to get to this particular project because I’m more of a soft bra person. After making handful of the Madalynne x Simplicity 8228 Bralettes, I decided it was time to finally give this pattern a whirl.
My favorite thing about this pattern? Vertical cup seams! I think this is currently one of the few vertical cup seam underwire bras out there. I actually really like the look of vertical cup seams and this pattern is really great for laces with scallop edges.
I’ve also received a number of queries on whether or not I will be offering bra kits for Pattern 8229. My regular underwire bra kits will actually work with this pattern! Look for kits with wider laces (8″+) and ask for a 3×3 hook & eye during checkout. For smaller sizes, you can also use kits with 6.5″ – 7″ laces.
