Christina Sports Bra Pattern

The Christina Sports Bra covers a total of 143 different sizes from a 28A through a 52K. Detailed instructions are provided for changing grades and elastic sizes. This pattern was designed to work with our 1 3/8" waistband elastic coded E32B8S for both waistband and straps.

Determining Your Pattern Size
This pattern was created from a set of measurements which incorporated the stretch of your waistband elastic. The simple way to determine your band size in this range is by taking your underbust measurement and add 2” if it is an even number and add 1” or if an odd number (for a looser fit, add 3").

The draft was created using our plush 1 3/8” (35mm) strap/waistband elastic. To find this elastic, search for E32B8S on our website at Porcelynne.com. Using our elastic is not required, but recommended as it is a wonderful elastic. If you use your own elastic, test if your elastic stretches such as the one this pattern was drafted for, place 2 pins on your elastic, exactly 5” apart. Stretch the elastic to the fullest stretch, if you hit 10”, your elastic matches mine. If you are using an elastic that is more restrictive of a stretch, with a stretch to 6 1/2” to 7 1/2”, add one band size to your original amount determined above.

Based on the band you have chosen to work with, measure your full bust and round to the nearest whole number. Subtract your band number from the full bust measurement. For each 1” difference, add a cup size.

Materials and Supplies Needed
Fabrics: spandex tricot, supplex spandex or similar athletic weight jerseys of 200-320 gsm (5-8 ounces). High spandex content over 20% can be used but may not be supportive for larger cup sizes. Scuba fabric can be used as it is very firm and very little stretch. Lining recommendation of a powermesh. The firmness of your power mesh should be in direct relationship to your cup size. The large the cup size, use a firmer power mesh (120gsm) for holding everything in place. Wicking or absorbent fabrics such as bamboo and hemp jersey may serve nicely as a lining fabric.

For 54" wide fabric, 15" in length for the small size set is required. 18" for the medium size set and 21" for the large size set. 30" by the same length is required for the lining. The design calls for approximately 1-2 yards for the waistband elastic and 1 additional yard for the straps. The neckline and armhole elastic is recommended 3-4 yards of 1/4" plain elastic. Fold over elastic can also be used in place of the plain elastic.

I felt compelled to comment, nay, RAVE! again about this bra. I spent almost 10 straight very hot sweaty hours helping prepare my mom to move - clearing out basement, packing, moving furniture, carrying out heavy stuff, going up and down hill and clambering over a stone wall to the curb waaaay too may times to count... and this bra was fantastic! No binding, cutting, chafing, pain in a 38J. Never have I owned something so comfortable and well-suited to my body in overdrive with moderate impact mode. My only regret was that it wasn't washed and dried in time for day 2 of packing and organizing. Thanks again Jennifer!

This plus size sports bra pattern works for me. I'm working on making the cups separate but at least I can make it with easily found fabrics and notions and it's not a difficult sew. I no longer have to try and see if there are any plus size sports bras in my size! I have a smaller band and a larger cup and those are practically impossible to find. Thanks for making this!

Forgive me if I gush - this is the most comfortable sport-style racer-back bra in the universe! No exaggeration: 1. under bust wrap band feature is super comfortable and non-binding 2. wide, covered straps do not bind, chafe or hurt tender shoulders (even after two shoulder surgeries) 3. accommodates large (38J) bust size without creating uniboob or total compression attempts and finally 5. very comfortable for lounge, sleep or casual wear. I sewed them up without seeing blog videos, but they are a great guide - I was too eager to sew it up and didn't stop to look first.

I love the Christina Sport Bra pattern. The cup sizing is great and accurate, the fit is fantastic and it is so comfortable. I thought the cross over front band was pretty for looks, but now that I have made it, I don't want any other band, it makes it sit so nicely around the body and stays in place all day. I also found the straps very comfortable and the right width. Best sports bra pattern and the only one that goes up that high in cup sizing! Of course, PDF is the best since you can download and get sewing as soon purchase.I like the option to print color or black and white (using black and white setting on my printer). Sometimes color is just better on bra patterns. I also like that there is a You Tube video "sew along" to go with the instructions.
