Sew Your Own Bra, Part II: Simplicity releases the 8560 pattern, sizes 30A-44G

Back in February, Simplicity released the 8339 pattern, a bra sewing pattern that comes in sizes 30A-44G. Now it is December and they have followed up another sports bra pattern in the same size range: the 8560. I'm liking the thicker shoulder straps on this one and the different chest/back detailing.

One thing to note is that as Simplicity is a US brand, they use inconsistent sizing nomenclature. Both this pattern and the 8339 have sizing that goes like: A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, and G so their G cup corresponds to a UK FF cup. If I had more time I would totally sew this bra in 30D. Sew both patterns and lemme know how they turn out!
