Dani is an intermediate-level, low impact sports bra with a fun back! The front is lined with optional removable or fixed cups. It also includes both SBA and FBA pieces for a beautiful fit. The back has 3 criss-cross straps and a straight strap across the top. The center back is lined and curves down. Choose from an exposed elastic band or enclosed elastic band.

The Mungata Undies are low rise, with a seamless detail at the hip to add different fabric or trims. The crotch gusset has fully enclosed seams and the coverage at the back is a bit cheeky. This pattern is drafted for 4-way stretch fabrics.
