Customers use this Sheer Stripe Duoplex Bra Cup Fabric to make lightweight but supportive bra cups and front bridges or frames. The fabric also works well for bralettes and some corsets. This fabric is a jersey, therefore, it has some mechanical stretch in the crosswise direction. We love our new fabric! The Sheer Stripe Duoplex looks incredible when paired with laces to make bra cups. You can coordinate fabric and lace with hardly any effort.
The Sheer Stripe Duoplex Bra Cup Fabric is available in 2 of the best-selling bra colors; light copper, which is a dark, caramel color and basic black. The light copper color is really lovely against tanned or darker skin tones. The combination of sheer and stripes in the fabric makes this a very interesting addition to your bra-making fabric collection. It is sexy but modest, cool to wear yet it is still easy to sew.
This fabric is low-stretch and therefore does not have enough stretch to use for a regular bra band. However, the fabric drapes very nicely and lends itself to lounge and nightwear perfectly. The stripes are interspersed with sheer sections which adds a sexy touch to the fabric. We love using this fabric with a split lower cup so we can chevron the stripes on the lower cup. Beverly did an informative blog post on this very technique in this post “How to turn stripes into Chevrons”.
