This was our original bra kit that was offered for many years. While no longer available, we've left it up so you could see the reviews on the kit itself.
We offer kits with all the basic “stuff” to make bras, perfect for the first-time bra-maker. Materials in the kit include fabrics for the cups and the back; bottom, top and strap elastics, neckline trim, channelling, hooks & eyes and strap adjusters, enough for ONE bra. The pattern and the underwires are NOT included. The LARGE kit will do sizes shown on the chart below. All kits have matching findings.
The large bra kit has the following supplies:
- 0.5 meters of duoplex
- 0.3 meters of powernet
- 0.5 meters of strap elastic (3/4" wide)
- 1.0 meters of channelling
- 1.2 meters of neckline trim
- 1.5 to 1.6 meters (depending on the color) of under arm/top elastic (1/2" wide)
- 1.1 to 1.3 meters (depending on the color) of bottom band/bottom elastic (3/4" wide)
- 3/4" rings and sliders
- 3 x 3 hook and eye set
- 1 bow
Keep in mind, that with the new firmer elastic, you may have to increase the back band length of your pattern.
FIRM Band Elastic comes in the following colors: White, Ivory, Peach, Pink, Fuchsia, Red, Lilac, Turquoise, Navy
Regular Band Elastic comes in these colors: Beige, Black
Please note that this kit is made specifically for the Pin-up Girl Patterns. We can't guarantee that this kit will cover all the needs of other bra patterns.

Sweet Cups Bra Supply is a first-rate online shop. Orders are always correct and Camille is very responsive with any questions. I have ordered from this shop several times and am always extremely pleased with the products shipped and the service.

My kits arrived well packaged and everything within was in perfect condition. The colors and fabrics are beautiful. I purchased blush, red, and black cherry kits. I hoped the colors would work together so I can mix it up...and they do! I’m still working on my muslins so I haven’t cut into my kits yet.

I love the kits! They are a great price and have top quality fabrics and elastics in the kits! I like that everything is easy to get in one complete package!

I received plenty of material to make a bra and hopefully there will be enough for a second (I need to do some pattern tweaking). If you want all elastic shoulder straps you will need to buy extra. Also if you want a lining then you will need to plan accordingly. For a first bra making experience I would call this kit a success!

I love how I can just buy one kit and it has everything needed for one bra. I got the red. The color is beautiful and vibrant. Will definitely buy again when I make my next bra.

I love these bra kits! When I first watched the tutorial on bra making by the "Fairy Bra Mother" I wanted to get started right away! I am an impatient person, so I went to Joann Fabrics and wanted to buy some fabric and see if I could find a bra pattern. I didn't want to have to wait for an order to come by mail. They didn't have a pattern. I did buy some fabric and elastics, but I ordered a bra kit and a pattern from Sweet Cups. When my bra kit came, I was shocked at how sub par the things I had purchased from Joann's were! Sweet Cups' fabric and elastics are far superior, high quality materials. My first bra came out GREAT! I love Sweet Cups!

It would Be nice if fabrics and trim were labeled especially since the kit is recommended for use with a beginning Craftsy class. A newbie doesn't necessarily know the difference between stay tape and another long ribbon of elastic.
I thought the kit was a good value for the money.

I'm a beginner, so a kit with everything you need is the way to go. Such cute trims too! Much better quality than what you can find at the big box stores. Now, how about an all cotton fabric version? Please!

I really like this kit. I have Beverly's Class on Craftsy and this is so great to have. I love the necktrim included , very pretty. I was able to follow along with all the lovely fabric and elastic. Thank you for prompt shipping and very courteous service.

I am so happy there is enough fabric to make more than one bra just in case the first try doesn't work out right the first time.
I am a savor of sewing stuff ND found my accumulation of bra parts and fabric. I have lots of finding so can make more than a couple of bras.

Excellent. The most comfortable yet supportive bra I have ever worn.

I made up a 44H using the Classic pattern and Large kit in red. It took me forever to figure out how to layout the pattern pieces to get them all to fit on the folded piece of fabric. Eventually I cut out a left an right of each piece and a full front band piece and laid them all on the unfolded fabric and figured it out. It would be nice to have a layout for the pieces at least for the patterns that you sell so that it isn't so confusing. After everything was cut out it was smooth sailing.

I bought the large lilac bra kit, and the color and quality is great. The shipping time was incredibly shor, as well. I would have been completely happy with just that. But Sweet Cups went above and beyond: I forgot to order underwires and placed a separate order the next day. I was okay eating a seperate shipping charge for my mistake. But they combined my order, refunded my additional shipping fee, and even gave me a 10% discount I overlooked on their website. I was so blown away with their customer service. I have given up ready-made bras and am making my own from here on out, and Sweet Cups has my business for life :)

This company gives incredible customer service. The kits are great for first time bra making, taking the guess work out of what type of product to buy and use. It comes with enough fabric that if you need to redo something you can. I love all the different colors you can choose from. Very happy with the product and have bought three more kits.

The Bra Kits are wonderful. They have everything in them that you need to
make a Bra. I made my first Classic Bra with the Pink Kit and watching the
Craftsy Bra class and I love it! I also bought some more kits. I am going to
make two Classic Bra's for my mom, then get back to making more for myself. Thanks so much!

Good materials and plenty of them. Appreciated that it was all there. It would have been helpful to list the exact contents and identify them - I would love to know the kind of fabrics included. I also misunderstood - no foam for the cups is included. It all worked out fine, just took some guessing as to what was what. Shipped quick and arrived quick - thanks!

It's ALL in the kit - fabrics, elastics, hardware and the sweetest little bow. Plenty of fabric to make a bra (I'm working with 40-48D Shelley Bra). The colors do match beautifully and it's good quality material. I would like to see a better description of the contents. The large kit comes with a 3-hook closure. I purchased the peach/blush and paired it with ivory lace (saved from my daughter's wedding). Great customer service from Sweet Cups.

Love the quality, everything is so PRETTY!
And it came so quickly ...

I made a size 32F Shelley Bra from the Pin Up Girls pattern line with this kit. I love the neckline trim that I received with my kit! The fabric is great!
My only issue was that I had a difficult time figuring out which fabric was which when it came time to cut out my pieces. A label or instructions on how to ID each one would help.
Also, Sweet Cups Bra Supply has amazing customer service!
