-1" swimwear elastic
-Overlock machine OR zig-zag stitch on a regular sewing machine
There are two special materials to add to this list:
-Underwire channeling: Underwire channeling is used as a casing for bra wires. It is necessary to use channeling in order for the wire in the top to be comfortable and safe. You can find underwire channeling in all different places, but below we've included a few suggestions:
1. Black 3/8" underwire channeling (The Bra Makery)
2. White Dyeable 3/8" underwire channeling (The Bra Makery)
3. White Dyeable 3/8" underwire channeling (Tailor Made Shoppe)
-Underwires: The underwires provide the structure for the top and give support to the breasts. For the Hudson Top, we are currently communicating with wire suppliers to find a custom solution for the Hudson Top, as it has a unique shape that's different than many bras.
We've created a spreadsheet so you can compare different underwires and see which you think would be best: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-1dEza14YTqQwyUgiRTHWvqtURwY_ZqN-0eFDR8O_bI/edit?usp=sharing
The best possible option is buying longer underwires and trimming them down to create a custom size. If you choose to go with this route, please wear eye protection when trimming and take all necessary precautions.
Ultimately Edgewater Avenue WILL provide custom underwires for the Hudson Top, but we ask for your patience as we go through the development process.
