Many women like the idea of wearing an elegant backless dress, especially on a special occasion. But with such a dress comes an unavoidable dilemma: how does one wear a bra without distracting from the cut of the dress? This problem is now a thing of the past! If you have an old bra taking up space in your drawer, don’t throw it out just yet. Follow the steps below, and make your backless dreams come true.

You will need:

  • one bra
  • scissors
  • pins
  • needle and thread

Here’s how: 

Take the bra and cut the shoulder strap to the place where it meets the back part of the band.

Still working on the same side, remove the rest of the band by cutting along the edge of the cup.

Repeat the same process on the other side.

 All that remains are the cups and the dangling shoulder straps!

Now pin the loose straps to the bottom of the cups.

Before you sew, try on the bra to make sure the straps aren’t too tight. If they are, move the loose strap further away from the center of the cup. Once you’re satisfied, go ahead and sew the straps in place!

This is the wonderful result: no hint of a bra in sight!

Give it a try!
