Hack #One: Use Paper Clips
It is not always necessary for you to spend so many dollars on a simple racerback bra. Put on your crafty goggles and grab some paper clips or safety pins. Once you wear your bra, just grab a paper clip and bring both the shoulder straps on your bra and pin them together or use the clip and secure them in the center of your back.
This will mimic the look a racerback bra would create. If you do not want to trust these products, you can even buy specialized pins that are used to convert your everyday bra into a racerback.
With just simple household items, you saved yourself a lot of money! This is also just a quick fix for an outfit that would need a racerback bra!
Hack #Two: Plastic bra washer
This one is less of a hack and more of a bra washing tip. Ladies, only we know how much we spend on that cute lacey lingerie, and it is gut-wrenching to see the lace just rip in the washing machine. Well, to solve your issue, here comes the ball that saves your bra.
This is just a simple plastic ball that has checked opening through it. You place your bra inside of this plastic ball and throw it in your washing machine with the rest of your clothes without having to worry about your bra getting damaged.
Hack #Three: Make Your Own Backless Bra
This can be a little technical, as you will need to know basic sewing to put this hack to action. If you have an old bra that you are just going to throw away, but the cups of the bra are still in good condition, all you need to do is:
- Cut the shoulder straps.
- Sew the cups to a strapless dress.
That is it! You have gotten a strapless bra for your strapless dress!
Hack #Four: Alternatives For Hack Three
For those who can not sew or do not know how to sew, this is your alternative.
You can take a safety pin and secure the bra on your dress in a way that you can not see the pin from the outside. This will also make sure that your bra will stay in place without you having to worry about it moving around. Another option is to use the bra without its shoulder straps.
If the padding of the bra is still in good condition and if you like it better than the one that came with your dress, then just remove the padding from your dress and replace it with the padding from your old bra. If the padding on your dress is not removable, then if you are brave enough, you can cut the lining of the padded area along the seams and remove the pad.
Hack #Five: Skin Safety And Comfort
The most important factor out of all is to make sure you feel comfortable without any restrictions. Often, the underwire of the bra will start to poke out and hurt you. If your bra is fairly new, then it is also very sad to have to throw them out.
Do not worry; we understand your pain, and a solution for this is just one product! Get yourselves some Dr. Scholl’s Moleskin Plus Padding! When the underwire is peeking out, using something strong ( or you can just use your hands) and push the wire back to its original position.
Once you do that, take a patch of Dr. Scholl’s Moleskin Plus Padding according to how much you need to cover the tear through which the wire is peeking out and the surrounding area to make sure it is secure. Stick this patch on top of the tear, and that is all you need to do to fix your bra!
These are just five simple hacks that will be useful for you when you need a quick fix. We are hoping that you found this article helpful and will keep the tips in your mind.
