We all have these bras that we no longer wear but that we can’t throw away – I mean, hey, bras can be pretty expensive – why not give them a new life instead of letting them dust your drawers? Enter: the bralette challenge TikTok takes on. Users on the platform deftly transform their old lace bras into unlined bralettes by simply cutting out the pads. The results are pretty impressive.
All you need is a pair of scissors to get started. According to people who have experimented with the trend, when the top of your bra is separated from the padding, it’s best to find the small seam at the top of the bra and carefully cut the thread. If your bra doesn’t have this layer, you can first drill a hole in one of the pads and cut around it so as not to touch the tip and wire. Many TikTokers have also recommended using nail scissors to be extra careful. Once the pads are cut out, you should get yourself a gorgeous lace bralette that is both cute and comfy.
Take a close look beforehand on how to turn your bras into bralettes that look just as cute as new ones you would buy at a lingerie store. If the perplexed reactions from these TikToker are any signs of it, this hack is definitely a must have.
