Frieda Partial Band Bra Pattern
Frieda Partial Band bra pattern features a sheer upper cup set into the bra using a pleasing s-curve seam. The outcome of this design is the outer lower cup acts as a power bar, pushing in from the side for greater support and uplift.
The upper cup has three views for variety and elegance: sheer, fabric or lace options give you a range for creativity.
