MODULE 1 • Shelf Bra Liners & Construction Options

Step Description
1 There are many different ways that you can construct shelf bras or shelf liners inside of a swimsuit. This particular tank suit, which I will turn inside out, has a shelf liner with set-in front cups.

2B You can also use polyester interlock fabric, which is a traditional swimsuit liner fabric to construct your shelf bra or set your front cups into.
