Make Your Own DIY Bra For Those Elegant, Bareback Summer Dresses

bareback

There’s a long summer ahead, and if you don’t already have one or two such items in your closet, you are probably planning on purchasing some elegant, bareback outfits for those warm nights ahead. And what is one thing that most certainly ruins the impression your bare, sexy back would otherwise make on people? A bra that gets in the way.

If you don’t feel much enthusiasm spending hours finding matching bras for all your bareback outfits, worry not. There is a simple way of making your own! Be warned, though: you will need to be ready to demolish a bra in order to make some alterations, but that small effort will save you both time and money, and your old bra will surely be grateful that you’ve given it a new lease of life.

Materials

* 1 bra with straps
* Scissors
* Needle
* Thread
* Elastic in a matching color

Instructions

1. Cut it

Cut off the sides, also known as wings. The straps should no longer be attached to the back section of the bra.

2. Measure it

Measure and cut three pieces of elastic that extend across the back of the bra. Make sure to pull a little so there is some stretch to accommodate your body size.

3. Stitch it

Stitch each strip of elastic onto the back of your bra by hand. Watch your fingers!

4. Finish it

Pull the bottom tip of the bra strap down to the lowest hanging elastic, and stitch the strap to each row of elastic. Repeat with the other strap.

And that’s all, folks! You’ll be ready to wear your DIY bra with your favorite summer dresses. Watch the video to see precisely how this is done. No more magic tape and no more self-consciousness obscuring your radiant beauty. However, bear in mind that you may want to keep it basic in terms of the color and design of the bra you choose for this project. Avoid lace, prints, or patterns – this will make it easier to hack it and match it up with the elastic strips. Since elastic comes in various widths, be mindful of what size will support your frame the best.
