Gail Wire Free Bra Pattern

Our incredible Gail is one of the most sold patterns! Wire free bras are very popular, due to the comfort and design and the Gail does not disappoint. This pattern has a few bust height options, so you can choose the support and look you desire. The back is full coverage and that is how we have engineered this pattern to achieve maximum support. Widely used for low impact sports bra situations, swim bras, slips as well as travel bras, the Gail is absolutely amazing to wear. 

Materials needed are varied, as this bra can be made using lace or as a full fabric option. Lace is the standard, and you will need 2m of firm stretch lace at least 22cm wide, 0.5m of Powernet (or Lycra for a less structured feel), 0.3m of fabric such as Lycra, satin, velvet, tricot, bamboo or cotton blends, 0.3m of lining such as Tricot, baby combed cotton or sheer nylon, 3m of 10mm facing elastic, 1m of 12mm facing elastic, 15cm of hook and eye tape and a bow motif to finish. This pattern comes in a size range of 8B, 10A - J, 12A - I, 14A - H, 16A - GG, 18A - G, 20B - F, 22B - E, 24B - DD, 26B - D, 28B - C, 30B.

Polyester thread is recomended for lingerie sewing and stretch needles for your sewing machine. Silk pins also prevent damage to delecate lingerie fabrics and laces.

All Booby Traps patterns are in Australian body sizes. This pattern can be sized down and used as a compression bra i.e, a 12G wears a 12C size to provide a compressed option for a larger bust (as in the last floral picture)

  • Gail wire free bra

    Posted by Rose on 16th Apr 2024

    This is a great pattern. I’ve made two as slip on bra tops. Exactly what I wanted for sexy comfort when I’m taking it easy at home or to slip on apres gym

    Reply: Thats so great Rose! Thanks for sharing your opinion on this pattern. I love the Gail too :) Dee

  • Awesome wire-free bra!

    Posted by Bec on 24th Sep 2022

    I was so excited to discover this pattern - a wire free bra that provides both support for larger busts and good looks! I plan on making it up as a slip in the next few weeks as I hate adding lining to my summer dresses.

  • LOVE this PATTERN!!

    Posted by Sarah on 16th Nov 2017

    Well what can I say, I bought this pattern quite a while ago, with all the things that I needed. But I never seemed to get around to making it....until today that is. Boy was I stupid for leaving it this long! What I have missed out on! It is a pleasure to sew and just sooo pretty and the most comfortable bra I have ever had. When I am finished writing this I'm going to order myself some more fabric to make myself at least three more so I don't ever have to wear my old store bought bras any more!

  • Get comfortable with Gail

    Posted by Anna-Maree Lee on 24th Mar 2017

    Having never sewn a bra, I chose Gail as it looked easy, wire free and it has a wide strap/back feature. Easier than I thought - A pleasure to sew! This pattern is drafted well and has easy to follow instructions. The finished item fits well and is super comfy and supportive. You won't know you're wearing it! Highly recommend!

Shipping within Australia is via Australia Post Parcel Send. You will have a tracking number attached to your order when it has been shipped. Please check your spam folder in case the email ends up there.

Shipping can be anywhere from 1 - 10 working days, depending on your location and other circumstances. Bra, Brief and other lingerie kits do take us a little longer to prepare as we like to make them when they are ordered to ensure all elastics etc are not sitting on our shelves here. Please note: We try to minimise our environmental impact and will not put small wire or component orders in separate bags.

We will try to use recycled or environmentally safe packaging where possible. We may also use recycled satchels if available.

Small orders - We know sometimes you only want a couple of bra rings and slides or a couple of pairs of wires and freight seems high for such small items. We have the flat rate there so we can track all orders and this rate is not negotiable, even for small items. This is because we use the same courier system and do not get cheaper rates for small items.

Large Orders - If purchasing in bulk amounts, free freight is no longer applicable. Please select it during checkout, and when your order is packed, we will weigh it and send a separate shipping invoice. Please understand, we cannot offer the discounted price along with free freight as the parcels often are quite heavy when you buy in bulk.

Standard shipping within Australia is a flat rate of $12.50 with a packing and handling fee of $2.50 per order. Parcels are handled via Australia Post Parcel Send.

The $15 shipping fee is non-negotiable and non-refundable.

Orders over $150 receive free freight option (this is not applicable for bulk buy purchases)

Express shipping is available at a flat rate cost of $25 within Australia. To ensure the parcel is sent on the day of ordering, the order must be in by 11am for a midday collection.

Lost/Delayed Parcels - If a parcel is lost in transit, it is no fault of Booby Traps as it is in the care of Australia Post. We will endeavour to assist you in trying to sort out the problem as promptly as possible. In some cases the parcel may simply need to be located and then it may arrive late. If you have insured your order, we can resend your parcel when Australia Post deems it lost.

Please Note: Booby Traps is not responsible for courier/Australia Post delays/damages. We hope customers can understand that when the parcel leaves our premises safely and promptly and is in the care of another business we cannot be responsible for any issues that may arise. These instances are not frequent but can happen.

If a delivery is attempted and the goods are not collected at the designated post office, Booby Traps is not responsible for returning the items back to the customer. On occasion, we can perhaps send the returned items with your next order. Please note: there are no refunds on any items returned to our warehouse because the courier could not deliver to the address provided.

Insurance is available when processing your orders and it is strongly recommended you select it. If you do not, this means you are accepting the risk of damage or loss yourself. Sadly Australia Post will not take liability if no insurance is added. We will do our best to assist you should you have problems, but cannot guarantee we can resend your order without insurance coverage.

Packing Times - We endeavour to ship items within one business day of receiving the order. On some occasions this is not possible, due to workshops, in-store customers and sewing classes, so parcels may be posted up to 3 business days after the order is processed.

Pick up in store is welcome, and the items must be pre-paid, so the order may be packed and ready for collection. Collection can be organised via Email. Please telephone or email to ensure the order is ready and organise a suitable time. Kindly ensure we have confirmed the pick up before coming into the warehouse.

Overseas shipping is most welcome. There is now no minimum order amount and all items are sent via Australia Post Parcel Send.

Please note: We have overseas freight prices in place for a 500 gram parcel only. In some cases, further freight fees may apply if a parcel is heavier than 500g. These additional freight fees are payable by the customer. We apologise for our website not being able to quote your order, but as we have so many tiny items, weight doesn't work correctly.

All items are shipped via Australia Post Track and Trace or express if selected. If you do not see your Country available when ordering please email us at and inform us so we can try and sort it out for you.

Packing and Handling

Booby Traps is mindful of its environmental impact and we are constantly striving to reduce packaging waste. This means we try and use as little plastic as possible while packing our orders. We know on occasion, this means you may have to sort items, but we hope you can understand and share or mission to keep our planet healthy.

Packing and handling fees of $2.50 per order apply and is included in your freight through checkout. If selecting store pick up or free freight, this fee will be added independently.

Bra components such as rings, slides, suspender clips, bikini clips and components are packed in one envelope if ordering under 100 pieces. This is also to reduce packing waste. If you do not wish to have this, you must purchase extra envelopes during ordering.

Returns & Replacements

Returns are accepted in the form of exchange for incorrectly purchased items or in the case of faulty items, a refund is issued. Refunds or returns are only applicable provided the item is returned in the condition it was purchased in within one month of the date of purchase. Refunds are not issued for incorrectly chosen items, but in the case of the customer not finding a desirable item, a gift voucher can be issued.
Shipping costs are non-refundable. The customer is responsible for the return shipping costs of incorrectly purchased items.

Please note: All parcels are checked over twice as quality assurance. If items arrive damaged, we guarantee they did not leave that way. Please be careful when opening the satchels as cutting them may also cut your products. These products are not replaceable by Booby Traps.
