With yarn still attached make a chain of 200. Cut yarn. Attach yarn yarn to the corner underneath that strap and make another chain of 200. Cut yarn and fasten off. Repeat on the other side.

Place a stitch marker in the centre of the the top edge of the body. Grab one of your cups (wrong side facing you) and line it next to the stitch marker and sew to the body making sure the body part is wrong side facing you too. Grab the other cup and sew that right next to the other cup.

For the shoulder straps, make a chain of 300. Cut yarn and fasten off. Fold that long chain in half and weave it through the chain 1 space at the top of the cup. Repeat on the other side.

And that is it! If you want more coverage on the side/back I would suggest doing a few rows of double crochet on the sides of the body part or make the body part using a bigger hook.
