Cut and Sew Foam


Pre-Finished Foam Padding Cut Sew Foam Swimwear Foam

Our Pre-Finished Foam Padding is a non-itchy, lightweight, poly-laminate foam. It is very easy to sew the foam together to make Cut Sew Foam Cups or Swimwear Foam Cups. The Pre-finished Foam Padding is finished on both sides with a Chlorine resistant, soft polyester knit. Customers use the foam for swimsuits, bikini tops, swim cups, bra cups, padded straps, or interior bra support collars.

This Cut Sew Foam is also used for a pattern making method which we call 3-D pattern making. Simply sew a cup with the foam, then draw new style lines directly on the foam padding. Re-cut along those lines, adding any match points or notches you deem necessary. Add seam allowances to the edges you cut and voila, you have pattern pieces for the new style of cup.

The Pre-Finished Foam Padding is made from 100% polyester and is 28-30″ (71-75 cm) wide. The foam does have some mechanical give in the crosswise direction. Sold by the quarter metre.

Colours Available:

We stock four colours of Cut & Sew Foam: white, ivory, peach, beige, chocolate and black. The foam is also available in Pink, Fuchsia, Red, Black Cherry, Lilac, Turquoise, Navy Blue and Platinum. If you require a particular colour, please don't hesitate to contact us and we can order your desired colour in.

We also have a Dyeable White, which has the same inner foam layer but covered both sides in a dyeable nylon fabric.


The Pre-finished Foam Padding is used in a variety of garments, any where a quality foam padding is necessary. Customers use the padding for Cut & Sew Foam Bra Cups and Swimwear Foam Cups. The foam is Chlorine resistant, making it a great choice for swimwear. Customers also use this foam to make comfortable padded bra straps and interior bra support collars. Its primary use, however, is for Cut & Sew foam lined bra cups, and as such, it is a superlative product. The shaping that a cut & sew foam cup provides is second to none.

Bra-makers Tip – To make your own foam cups, simply trim seam allowances from the cross cup seam. Then, butt the raw edges of the padding together and stitch across them with a zig-zag stitch. The stitching will keep the foam edges together and the result will be a seamless look.
