Bras are here to help us. We totally get it but unless you have worn one, you can never understand the pain of wearing a bra. It’s like a 9 to 5 job with no raise and no promotion. You hate it. You don’t want it in your life. You imagine a better life. However, deep down you know that quitting it is not the greatest idea. A lot depends on it. Do you feel me? If you do, here are 6 bra hacks that you will love.
You don’t need to waste your money on buying a racer back bra. Use a paper clip to keep the straps together and that is it. A paper clip is strong enough to keep the straps together and you save money and time by not buying a separate bra for a few dresses.
If you have a backless dress that requires you to wear a strapless bra and still you do not get the perfect fit, this is what you need to do. Take your old padded bra, any type will do. Cut the straps and sew the cups on the inside of the dress. The dress will now have the perfect support your boobs require.
The straps are the most painful thing about wearing a bra, It cuts into your flesh slowly and steadily. Although a lot of bra makers have tried to provide softer material for the straps but to be honest, nothing helps. You can protect your shoulders and escape the pain by putting a little cushion under the strap. This cushion can be made from a piece of satin cloth, a bandage, some cotton or any soft material that you can think of.
All of us have been in a situation where the shirt decides to leave the shoulder and slip, exposing the bra strap. While this is no big deal, the situation can some times be very embarrassing (for example, during an interview). You can avoid this by sewing a small piece of cloth under the shirt where it covers the bra and then using clasp buttons to keep the strap locked within the piece.
