Elan Patterns - CAUTION!!

Have a question or want to show off your project? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
The recent topic of bra making ....paired with the 60 Minutes expose
on $2000 custom made bras from Paris.....got me thoroughly convinced
to go ahead and try it.
CAUTION....I "Googled" for Elan Patterns......and I clicked on the 6th
entry down.....DON'T DO IT!  
That link (not an official Elan website) has a
Horrible Trojan Horse VIRUS!!!!  
It immediately takes over the entire computer.
Luckily we have lot's of virus protection and my computer savvy
husband came to the rescue.  But it still took hours to clean it out
and put the computer right again.
I have since viewed the patterns at another site....but want to
caution everyone.

60 Minutes basically said that most women are wearing "the wrong bra."
It is either ill-fitted or wrong.  You should get a proper fitting
with a professional at least once a year.
They went on to say that you shouldn't wear bras with elastic straps.
That if it rides up in the back it isn't fit properly.
It is BEST to have a dart in the cup.  
It is BEST to have seams in your bra because it adds support.
That too many people wear "shapeless" bras....and that the breasts
should be molded and held high with a slight point upward.
O.K......yeah right.....then they went on to say that most women
wouldn't dream of getting a custom made bra because of the expense and
"who would see it" atttude but that they should do it just for them.
They will feel prettier knowing how lovely their dainties are....and
they will make them feel special.  We deserve it.

Well Joy, I don't think too many of us were about to run to Paris for
that custom fit $2000 bra anyway...but "perky" breasts sounds nicer
than the way the lady on 60 Minutes made it sound.

Just why is it that we should be so configured, with the assistance of
the lingerie industry?  This would not occur naturally under any
circumstances.  Why is it of value to us?  Why should we care?

On the issue of authorities, this was in my morning paper:
