what bra to wear with the crescent blouse

What bra can you wear with the Megan Nielsen Crescent blouse?

It feels totally weird writing a blog post about bras, but I know there are a number of you that have been worried about what bra you can wear with your Crescent blouse. I’ve had comments from quite a few people about their hatred for strapless bras, and how that leaves them confused as to how they could wear the Crescent.

Well guess what folks, i never wear strapless bras. They’re freaking uncomfortable!

Thats why i designed the Crescent to be worn with a regular bra – the inner shoulder straps are drafted to lay over the bra straps of a cross over bra. Want to see? Here we go…

CROSSOVER BRA WITH CRESCENT BLOUSE

Isn’t that cool?

Don’t have a crossover bra? Easy baby, you can pick up these little bra converters for almost nothing. I got mine for $3 at my local pharmacy – there are literally tonnes on Amazon.

REGULAR BRA + CONVERTER CLIP TO WEAR WITH CRESCENT BLOUSE

I mentioned this in my original post about the Crescent, because a lot of thought went into the exact placement of the shoulder straps. But hey, if you missed that, now you know! I hope that alleviates some of your worries. Yay for not having to wear rib crushing straplesses that require constant pulling and proding to stay in place! hehehe

Isn’t it weird talking about bras? I totally understand. Unfortunately, I like sewing them so I have to get used to writing and speaking about everything that makes up a bra!

That is brilliant! Utterly genius.

I have to ask – did you make those amazing silver pants? I love them!

Heheheh… I understand it perfectly though! I eyed off that denim SO HARD but couldn’t even bring myself to buy it as I knew I wouldn’t sew jeans!

I need to get one of those converter things… I usually use a safety pin! But then the straps get caught in the spring-y part of the pin, and I’m always afraid it will open up and stab me.
