*A few notes about our kits-
We do not believe in ordinary! Our passion is helping you to create the lingerie of your dreams. Whether you want the look of a $175 French bra, or a simple bra in the color that fits your mood that day, we’ve got you covered. We feel bra kits should offer a variety of options. One size never fits all in the store, so why would one size fit all in a bra kit? That’s why we have so many choices. But what you see is just the tip of our creative iceburg. If there is a special color combination you are looking for, message us. We love creating custom kits!
Please check your pattern measurement before ordering, as many of our laces are one of a kind from Europe and cannot be reordered! Make sure to add an extra few inches to the band if you are choosing the Sturdy powernet. Our Strong powernet has 30% stretch compared to the 60% stretch of regular bra powernet. It may feel more comfortable to add an extra bit of length to your bra band.
If you are making a bralette or style of lingerie that calls for picot edging, fold over elastic, panty lining, etc, please message us-we can often add this to your kit. If you are using a style or size of pattern that requires more lace, powermesh, elastic, etc., let us know. We are always happy to adjust bra kits to your needs.
Please note that orders are shipped out Monday/Wednesday/Friday. However, if you are in the Portland, OR area, you can make an appointment to pick up packages at our store in Beaverton.
If picking in person, shipping fees will be refunded upon pickup. Packages not picked up within 2 weeks will be sent via USPS mail.
