Sewing the Afi Chic bra cup is easy. Fitting is what usually raises some questions. And the instructions do not cover these particular details. Although there aren’t many things to know about the cup, the ones that are presented here are the most important. In the future, I may update this article with a few more.
Let’s get started
- STRAP POINT – The strap point should be quite high almost running to your shoulder; the Af Chic cup is a high one
- THE SEAM UNDER THE CUP – The vertical seam under the cup is more to the center front
- CUP SEAM – The first cup seam does NOT end in the vertical seam from the band; it runs just a bit in the direction of the side seam
Please carefully note the numbers 2 and 3. The seams do NOT intersect! The top-stitches do intersect.
This is a tricky thing in the Afi Chic bra. This alignment is what creates a beautiful aesthetic cup.
When attaching the cup to the band, don’t worry, the cup has a notch. And the notch is where the band seam should sit. Nothing is complicated once you take it step by step and follow the sewing steps.
