How to Measure Underwires

It’s really hard to know what bra size you wear, let alone what size underwire you need.
Every company that makes bras and bra sewing patterns has their own sizing, some overlap, but often they don’t.

When viewing an underwire product page on our site you’ll notice a button along the side labeled “+ Technical Specs” – Clicking this link will display the exact measurements of the underwires.

Screen Shot 2015-11-23 at 2.44.52 PMThis is what you’ll see: Screen Shot 2015-11-23 at 2.45.08 PM

If you are unsure how to get the Length, Depth, and Width use this as your guide.


The Length is measured around the curve from tip to tip. The Width is straight across from tip to tip. The Depth is measured from the center point of the Width to the bottom of the curve.

Happy Bra Making!

Ooops! Forgot Something?


It happens to the best of us… In your rush to purchase the supplies needed to complete your project you forgot to include a couple important items in your order.  Now there is a quick and easy way to add items or modify an order! (As long as the order has not already been pulled and shipped.)

Modifying An Order

The “Modify An Order” link is “http://corsetmaking.com/modify-order.html”.  From here you can do the following:

Add Some Forgotten Items:

Here’s the easiest way to add some items to your original order:

  • You will need to fill out the Order Modification Request Form on the Modify An Order  page.

  • Even if you plan on calling, please submit the form first so that we have it on hand to accompany your call.

  • If you are only adding items to your order, write “None” in the “Items to Cancel” field.

  • In the “Items to Add” field, list the Quantity, Items, and any necessary Item Variations (length, width, color, etc.) for all items your would like added to your order.

  • Check the 3 Agreement boxes at the bottom of the form and Submit.

Modify or Delete Some Items:

The easiest way to modify any items in your original order is to list all incorrect items in the “Items to Cancel” field, and then list the corrected items in the “Items to Add” field.

For example: If you accidentally ordered 5 rolls of 1/2″ White Bone Casing but you wanted 5 Rolls of 1/2″Black Bone Casing, then CANCEL the original 5 rolls of White and then ADD the corrected 5 rolls of Black in the appropriate fields of the form.

  • You will need to fill out the Order Modification Request Form on the Modify An Order  page.

  • Even if you plan on calling, please submit the form first so that we have it on hand to accompany your call.

  • List all incorrect or unwanted items in the “Items to Cancel” field of the form.

  • In the “Items to Add” field, list the Quantity, Items, and any necessary Item Variations (length, width, color, etc.) for all of the corrected or new items your would like added to your order.

  • Check the 3 Agreement boxes at the bottom of the form and Submit.


  • Order Modifications are only possible if we receive your request before the original order has been packaged & shipped.

  • All order modifications are subject to a service charge of $1.49 to cover the additional processing fees.

  • Order modifications may increase the shipping cost and delay the delivery date of your order.

  • By requesting an Order Modification you are authorizing Delicious LLC to charge additional product costs and fees using your original payment method.

  • If additional charges are to be paid by PayPal, payment must be received before the order will be modified and shipped.

Act Fast!

Our staff is fast and efficient, so you’ll want to act fast if you realize you’ve forgotten something!  Most orders are pulled within 1 or 2 business days, many get pulled same day.

What’s New?… “New” is New!

Hello Makers!

Here’s some exciting news about New Arrivals…

In the past New Arrivals would often end up buried in sub-categories of our site because there was no easy way to categorize them outside of their department.  Now, however, technology’s warm loving glow has bestowed upon us a much better way to share all of our new arrivals regardless of the category under which they might fall!

All you MakingItYourself regulars may have noticed the “New” category that now lives in the first, far left, position in the Top Navigation Bar… this is now where you can go to find all our latest offerings – finally a way to see all New Arrivals in one place!

And for all you mobile web surfers, if you are shopping on a mobile device, the “New” category will fall at the top of the Departments list in the left navigation menu.

Check it out…. see what’s new!

See what's new sitewide in our new "New" category!

Melissa Davis

We don’t just sell supplies to make corsets and bras, we sell supplies to celebrate corsets and bras! You’re making our mouths water Michelle!

Michelle Fitzgerald

Keep the photos coming folks, we love to see what you’ve done with our supplies!

Using our bra making supplies from BraMaking.com Sharon made these cute matching sets. The lace set is classic yet playful, and the animal print set features a nursing bra. Nursing bras are usually so bland. It is a welcomed change to see fun nursing lingerie.
You can find her fun lingerie on etsy.com under OwlAboutCloth.

Bridal Creations from Delicious

These are some photos from over the years of some lovely brides who chose Delicious and allowed us to take part in their big day! Thank you, we love helping to make your wedding gown just as you imagine it!

Lisa, this combination of silk, lace overlay, lace drape and armlettes, and georgette skirt is stunning, having fun with the photos too!


This whole wedding party was grey and white. We made the grey pinstripe corset, the matching shorts with white silk welt pockets, and their twin boys also got the grey and white pinstriped shorts. Liz and Shannon, we’re honored to be part of your big day!

Some non traditional wedding attire.

Beautiful Lauren in a silk corset with ruched tulle at the bust and a super full princess skirt. The bust line and hem were adorned with Swarovski Crystals.


Another non-traditional bride. I just loved making this bias cut blue and brown plaid skirt! And the bride was stunning! Mamie, thanks for putting a new twist on bridal!


The lovely Betsey in our Corseted wedding gown. Complete corset underneath with the gown attached at the top leaving an open V in the back to expose the corset and lacing. A healthy dose of pink tulle at the hem compliments the pink corset! As you can see, great for dancing.

Becky was nearly drowning in this tulle underskirt. Her red brocade asymmetrical over skirt and corset are totally unique. I love the combination of colors and textures. What a beautiful day! (I wish I had a photo of me drowning in the tulle at my Juki.)

Shannah’s Alice in Wonderland wedding was spectacular! Her black and white corset had exposed bone casings and lace trim. Her tulle underskirt is layers of black, white, and more black in graduating widths. The brocade bustled overskirt took over 16 yards of brocade, and the longest pattern pieces I’ve ever drafted!

We also make corsets as foundations for gowns bought at bridal boutiques.

This corset gown was made from the same material you use at the bottom of Footy Pajamas, little rubber bumps and all! It looked like a point d’esprit. Daffodil tulle and lacing to go with the fresh Daffodils. Thanks Erin!

Although red is not your traditional wedding gown color, we seem to make quiet a few red corsets and gowns. As you can see with Mae, it is stunning and dramatic!

I love when a bride wants to incorporate bright colors, the orange bias trim and lacing were made from a piece of fabric the bride had found and loved. There are pale lavender silk flowers nestled into the bustled silk skirt. And you have to love a bride with a sense of humor! (And her sister as well!) Fabulous smile Michelle!


This was a collaboration with an artistic bride, Shelita. We gave her the silks and she pieced all the different colors together making her own unique fabric. We then used her hand made fabric to cut out her corset. Totally one of a kind, and she was glowing!


This is while in progress, as you can see by my pins. I’m still looking for a photo of the entire ensemble, I can assure you, it was stunning! 


Sara was another bride in red, these were from such a long time ago that some of these pics had to be scanned from Polaroids.

D-Ring With Clip

You can attach this D-Ring with the attached Nickel Clip onto any existing corset, bag, purse, backpack, pair of Jeans, or belt. Anything, really. With a Rivet or a Chicago Screw.

20150707_160206_resized   20150707_160235_resized

I used this D-Ring with the attached Nickel Clip on a purse recently. I always like having a D-Ring on the exterior of my bags so I can easily attach my keys. I know exactly where they are and they are really easy to grab when getting into my car or house in the evenings. No fumbling around in the interior of my purse. I attached it with a 7mm domed rivet.
LCS-DR-C0375NK       LCS-STR-DR07NK  LCS-T-DR07    Rubber Mallet
To set the rivet you do need the Rivet Setter, but once you have the setter and rivets, you’ll use them again and again. Attaching this took only a couple seconds. Much easier than sewing through a leather purse with leather lining to sew a D-Ring to the purse.

You just make a small hole with a Revolving Leather Punch or an Awl, the center post of the rivet is very narrow, so you don’t need much of a hole to press it through. Insert the post from the wrong side and place the cap on top snugly. You’ll feel it pop on. Set the post on a sturdy table, place the Rivet Setter onto the dome and hit the Setter with a Rubber Mallet a couple times. Easy Peasy! You may want to do a test on a similar weight of fabric first, if the fabric or leather is too lightweight, just cut a small circle of heavier weight leather for a reinforcer and put the rivet through both.

Plus, you can set the rivets anywhere! I added three to the same purse’s strap for a bit of extra decoration.

You can also insert a Chicago Screw into the D-Ring with the attached Nickel Clip if you need to go through a hard surface or very thick leather. Plus, the Chicago Screws can be removed. This is the 1/4″ Nickel Chicago Screw fitting easily through the hole in the Clasp.
