There are so many useful tips and tricks to learn from TikTok that it has become our go-to resource for finding new ways to make our lives easier. Certain tactics don’t live up to the hype, while others are downright deadly.
Nevertheless, some of the most ingenious hacks exist. While there are plenty of creative solutions for concealing bra straps under an open-back shirt, one category that’s ripe with inventive solutions is bra hacks, in which women change their normal T-shirt silhouettes into strapless ones.
When it comes to online tricks, I was suspicious about how well they performed in real life and not just for a 15-second video. As a result, I set out to put them to the test. Here are five of the most popular TikTok bra hacks, along with my unvarnished opinions on whether they live up to the hype.
9 More Bra Hacks That Every Woman Should Be Able to Perform.
Remove Your Straps
With some tops and dresses, you may think that you need a different sort of bra in order to hide the straps. However, your present bra may already be a multipurpose piece of clothing!
In many bras, one strap has a hook and the other has a loop. It’s as simple as attaching a hook and loop together and loosening the straps till they fit comfortably.
Discover Your Perfect Fit
Wearing a bra that doesn’t properly fit can make you feel self-conscious about the rest of your outfit. This past week, I visited a local bra fit specialist named Courtney. The bras she advised were so much more supportive and comfortable than the ones I had been wearing.
Put a Buckle on It
Do your bra straps constantly come undone? Maybe you’d like to keep your shirt in place so that your straps are protected. Even if the situation is dire, a few pieces of fashion tape would come in handy.
For fastening bra straps and/or shirts in place, “Fashion tape” is essentially double-sided tape. To keep your shirt and strap in place, slip it under the strap or over the strap.
Prevent Cups from Crushing
A couple of socks or a pair of underwear can be stuffed into your bra cups when you’re packing for a trip. This will keep the bra from getting squashed in your suitcase.
Make Straps Stay in Place
If you can’t get your adjustable bra straps to stay in place, what’s the point? Fortunately, there’s a simple solution that doesn’t require you to buy a new bra at the store.
It’s easy to keep the strap where you want it thanks to these handy strap clips. What a relief!
It’s Safe to Wash It
Hand washing your bras is the safest method, as I described in this blog post (especially the really nice ones you were willing to invest your hard-earned cash in.)
A mesh washing bag with an interior frame is an option for those who want to wash their clothes in the machine. You may prevent your bra from getting tangled, squashed, or deformed by putting it in a bag like this before washing.
DIY Built-In Bra.
There are times when you buy a dress and realize that none of your bras go well with it. Bras for strapless and backless dresses are especially difficult to locate!
It’s a lot easy than it sounds to incorporate a bra into a dress in these situations! The cups can be attached to the inside of the garment with a few simple stitches using a cheap strapless bra in your size.
They should be hung.
If your closet is on the small side, here are some tricks to make the most of the available space. If you flip the bottom of the hanger over, you can hang many bras on it. As a bonus, this is a great place to hang your freshly cleaned bras to dry.
Although I am aware that fashion fads come and go, I had no idea that the dickey would be making a comeback! However, a renaissance has occurred, and one specific style can be used to address a common fashion conundrum faced by many women.
With more “well-endowed” people, some garments can reveal more than you’d prefer in the chest area. This false camisole can be attached to your bra’s straps for fast cleavage covering (and a fashionable layering effect, too)!
