Hangers can give you that lingerie shop kind of vibe. Have all your bras displayed and be proud of your collection. Make sure the hangers that you use have folds or dents to avoid your bras from slipping. 

Tip: You can use small paper pins or clips to secure the strips on the hangers, if your hangers don’t have the dents.

Use Your Drawers

Drawers with wider width dimensions are the best to perfectly lay out your beauties in line. You can either lay them standing or leaning on one another. Try color coordinating them for fun. 

Tip: Start from the backside with bigger or bulkier material and work your way towards the front, wherein you can lay down your daily wear bras. Make sure you lay a sheet of paper before the process begins.

  1. Use Cloth Drawers

Cloth drawers are an amazing way to increase storage space. You can buy them in sets or individually. When you are done filling them, either cover them with another cloth drawer or shove them under your bed or desk. 

Tip: Stack your padded bras leaning against each other while the non-padded bras can be rolled and stacked like cold drink cans.

  1. Use Hanging Shoe Organizers (specially for padded bras)

Don’t have enough space to lay your beauties all out? Use hanging shoe organizers to fill in the empty space below the rods. These organizers come with hooks that you simply need to hang over your closet rods. Each compartment is pretty spacious to at least fit in five padded bras of standard size.

Tip: Place your everyday use bras on top of every compartment so that you don’t have to remove everything just to get one bra.

  1. Something Different?: Use PVC Pipes

Well this is only if you have unused PVC pipes at home. Buying PVC pipes just for storing bras doesn’t seem like a good idea. This method is for all the unpadded bras you own. You can also use this technique of storage for all your plain everyday wear t-shirts.

Tip: It indeed is all in the wrist. Do not shove clothing inside the tube. Roll them properly and before doing so, make sure you have cut the PVC pipes to have a suitable height to fit inside the drawers.

  1. Hang them all: Use Shower Rods or Ropes

You can use spare shower rods, curtain rods or closet rods to simply hand your bras. This is the simplest way to store your beauties. There is not much contact between two lingerie pieces and you don’t have to worry about buying extra pins or storage bins either.

Tip: Before you hang them in a closed space make sure they are completely dry. Any kind of moisture that stays too long over fabrics has the potential to cause stains and discoloration.

What’s better than buying stuff online? It is definitely using what we already own. So, take loose paper sheets and a pair of scissors and start folding the papers into long and thick rectangular strips.

The height of the strips must be less than the depth of the drawer while the length must be a little less than that of the drawer. Start cutting slits on both sides of the strips such that two strips perfectly interlock with each other.
