Mighty Sports Bra
Evie la Luve
I named this bra ‘Mighty’ after how it made me feel while I was wearing it. Who doesn’t want to feel powerful and strong when they’re working out?! As a person on the smaller side I’ve always loved the phrase ‘small but mighty’ and that’s what came to mind when I tried my first sample of this style on.
The bra works by compressing the chest to hold your breasts in place so the fit is tight. There will still be some movement for larger cup sizes due to the stretch fabric required for getting the bra off and on and being able to move comfortably while wearing the bra. The amount of support your sports bra offers will ultimately come down to your fabric choices. See the supplies page in the listing images for more information on supplies.
As always there are a few interchangeable, optional details you can combine to sew your Mighty. The wrap around strap, while not fundamental to the function of the bra give the style an edgy vibe and the mesh overlays provide a little extra support (depending on the fabrics you choose to make them with) and give this bra a really unique look. There are also options for including a back closure. Have you ever been so exhausted after a workout that you can’t even take off your bra?! I know I have… so the back closure option allows you to take your bra off with no additional exercise/contortion needed.
