Eve Classic Bra

The Eve Classic is the first of its kind with thousands of variations for bands, wires and cups. The bands are designed to be selected by your under bust and over bust (chest) measurements. These bands are available in sizes 28 through 52. Each band is available in 4 different upper torso shapings.

The cups are separated by wire size, so one wire for a cup might have up to 30 different cup size options and 4 different upper torso shapes, really allowing one to customize their fit.

The cups designed for the regular wire are designed around a uniformly round breast and are best for sizes up to about an F cup. While some people in larger cup sizes will fit this style well, some may discover that they need to move the apex and vertical seam over towards the center front of the bra. This is a relatively easy modification to make, but I would recommend our vertical wired cups for breasts over an F cup. The vertical wired cup is designed around a non-uniform breast shape, where the apex and volume is positioned closer towards the front of the cup to eliminate the East/West effect that larger cups can experience.

The first stage in making your own bra is to determine what wire size and style you wear. To determine this, I recommend conducting a wire trace of your breast root. Once you have traced your breast root, compare your wire trace up to our wire charts (available in each wire listing). Select your band by using the form on the band product page, then create a fitting band for your wire. Once you have confirmed that your band and wire are the best match for you, you should then proceed to the cup pattern.

Selecting your Band Size

The great thing about selecting your band by measurements, then selecting your wire is that you know your base will fit you. Once you know these two important parts, then you can order the cups by the wire size and follow the form below to help you select the cup size to start with.

In the charts below, note both the V Shape and the V Shape adjustment for your pattern instructions. They will help you adjust the pattern to make it even more custom to your body.

When determining the size to select for the band and cup, use the following calculators. These calculators need to be filled out separately. They are the same drop-in calculators used in the product listings. Follow the instructions for each pattern and the calculators.

Selecting your Cup Style and Size

You can now select the vertical wired cup for any of the bands you choose. The vertical calculator (located below the regular calculator) helps you identify which vertical wire set to purchase to best match the wire line of your band. There are specific instructions with your band and the cups that help you identify which adjustments to make on your patterns.
