Christine Cyr Clisset from Daughter Fish shares a tutorial at BurdaStyle showing how add a built-in bra with cups to a fitted tank (or dress, or tee). Ohhh, this makes me so happy!! I can’t stand having my straps show, and sans bra is not a pretty look on me. Adding a built-in bra with cups gives the support and shaping without the annoying straps peeking out on your shoulders and back. Go to her tutorial on BurdaStyle.
(If the cups you use are scratchy, or your garment fabric thin enough that the cups show through, she has a tutorial on her blog showing how to line the cups inside and out.)
