Hi Everyone! I have been busy busy busy working on costumes for dancers and here is one issue that is common pertaining to bra size and fit that I think will help some dancers and aspiring costume makers out there who are looking to make or buy a great fitting costume bra.

This is my first Vlog and will be uploading more on a regular basis. Please post your comments, question, and if you need any explanations comment directly onto this post. Thanks and talk to you all soon!

Thanks Carrie! I am sure this translates well to dancers who pad as long as they remember to go a cup up.

Your video was super helpful for my beginner belly dance student who wants to buy a dance bra. I was explaining these measurements in the class room tonight. But I think seeing you on the video will be fantastic for her to understand what I was trying to explain. Thank you xxxx:)

Thx Jen! I ALWAYS have an issue with my bras and end up adding what I call a “boob tupee” to cover up too much cleavage… lol
