One of the most annoying things about buying bras is that even though they can be pretty pricey, they also tend to wear quickly. When you find a favorite bra, you wear it a lot, and it inevitably gets stretched out or dirty, no matter how often you wash it. But getting rid of a bra just because it’s a little old looking feels like a total waste of money!
These Step-by-step Bra Refashion tutorials are all pretty easy, and they’ll allow you to turn an old bra into something that feels like new. You can take an older bra or a bra you don’t wear very often and turn it into a cute bandeau.
Add some straps and make it look awesome underneath a loose tank top. You can even transform it into a unique bathing suit! Read this Step-by-step Bra Refashion article bellow to find out some amazing ways of updating your old bra.
1. Elastic Strappy Bra
Here’s a really simple DIY to convert your old/new bras into new elastic and fancy strappy ones! I find this especially useful for when the bands have stretched out and the bra no longer fits well. The tri-strap also looks great layered under loose tanks and low-back dresses! No more ugly bra straps peeking out!
