Product Description

Direct from BWear Sweden!

Jessica, the sister pattern to our Angie, is also filled with fantasy, designed to give a lovely roundness and built to be a functional bra we are all looking for! And, just like our Angie pattern, the Jessica bra has a well-formed rounded cup, with a narrow band to prevent the elastic from rolling, and a sloped hook & eye back for better support and fit. Jessica’s cups are designed with one vertical seam, with a split front and a seam in center. This pattern comes with instructions in English and Swedish, with about 20 sizes per pattern pack. Jessica is only sold in paper form. Listed below are instructions for determining your pattern size. All measurements are in centimeters (1 inch = 2.54 cm).

Determining Your Pattern Size

To determine your size for this pattern, you need two measurements. 

Under Bust (Rib Cage)

Wearing your best fitted bra, measure your under bust, pulling the tape snug against the skin but not tight. The closest even number to this measurement is your band size. If you measure 34” on the under bust, you take a 34” band size. If you measure 35” on the under bust and you normally use 36”. Keep in mind, that you will probably get a better fit if you use centimeters. When measuring yourself, be sure to hold the tape level and not twisted.

Full Bust
Now measure over the fullest part of the bust. Do not pull the tape tight, just snug enough to keep it from sliding down. This gives you the full bust measurement.

Calculating the Bra Size

Subtract the under bust measurement from the full bust measurement to determine the cup size. The difference in inches (centimeters) is the cup size.

4 inches (10 cm to 12.5 cm) = A cup

5 inches (12.5 cm to 15 cm) = B cup

6 inches (15 cm to 17.5 cm) = C cup

7 inches (17.5 cm to 20 cm) = D

8 inches (20 cm to 22.5 cm) = E

9 inches (22.5 cm to 25 cm) = F cup

10 inches (25 cm to 27.5 cm) = G cup

11 inches (27.5 cm to 30 cm) = H cup

12 inches (30c to 32.5 cm) = I cup

Example: 40” full bust – 36” under bust = A cup size (4 inch difference)

PLEASE NOTE: While measurements and sizing are listed in inches, you will get a more accurate sizing result if you use centimeters. 

 

Wire Sizing Suggestions

These are the wire sizes suggested for each pattern size. You may find that for your particular breast size and shape, a different wire size works better for you, and it is okay to substitute another size in your pattern.
