What do you do when your bra has gotten old? Normally people would throw it away. Some people would donate it too. There is another way you can make good use of these bras if you do not choose these two options, however. You can create them into something brand new! How? Well, you just need to scroll down to see!
If your bra is still usable but doesn’t look as nice as it used to be, what you can do is sew the bra with some fabric to turn it into a fashionable bralette top. You can use sequins, beads, and other things to make it look even better. Not only will you be able to use your bra for a longer period, but you can make a custom bralette top that will make you look stunning and you won’t have to wear a bra under it!
Sometimes, the bra is still usable but the straps are broken. In this case you can use the bra to make a swimming top. You can give the bra halter straps for that hot beach look, and keep the entire bra encased in a waterproof fabric so that the bra doesn’t get soaked when you use it.
If you have a still-usable bra and a pile of beautiful lace, you can sew them together to make a wonderful lace undershirt. A versatile undershirt like this one can be worn for any occasion, underneath party outfits or paired with a cardigan and jeans to give yourself a stylish 2022 look.
Not only can you sew the bras with different fabrics, you can also add other bra straps to the bras to make an elastic strappy bra. If there are other bras that are too old to be worn, you can take the straps from those bras and add them to the still-usable bra to make a strappy bra. You can be creative with the designs to make them fit any clothing you wear.
Top tier innovation
Sometimes, you can sew your old bra to a current top, so that way you can wear that top without having to wear a bra underneath. Depending on the cup of the bra, it can also enhance the overall look of the top. You could also sew the bra to a strapless dress so your dress has a strapless support.
The grand purse-suit
Now, what if the bra is old but is a wired bra that could hurt you? You can make it into other things, such as a purse. Sewing the cups together and adding a zipper will turn it into a nice purse. If you’re very ambitious, you can try creating pockets to store more things in the small purse.
Stick a shoe in it!
You can also take the padding of the bra and put them into shoes that are loose or uncomfortable. This acts as padding that takes up space so the shoe will fit, and because it is soft, it makes the shoe more comfortable to wear.
There are many ways to use an old bra, and with a little creativity you are sure to get the most out of it even when it has gone past its glory days.
