Lin­gerie hacks, tips for women

Did you know you can use a pa­per­clip to turn a brassiere into a racer­back, or keep a strap­less from fall­ing down by se­cur­ing it with a con­vert­ible strap? Here are some use­ful tips: Colour: Al­ways wear a nude or beige colour brassiere un­der white out­fits for no show. Most girls make the mis­take of wear­ing white un­der white. One brassiere style is not enough for ev­ery kind of out­fit. With an off-shoul­der dress, in­stead of wear­ing a brassiere with trans­par­ent straps, which in most case are hardly trans­par­ent, one should go for a tube or a strap­less brassiere. Ac­ces­sories: In­ter­est­ing brassiere ac­ces­sories like low back con­vert­ers are a saviour if one wants to wear a low back dress. DIY: Use a pa­per­clip to turn a brassiere into a racer­back, or to hide straps that keep pok­ing out from sleeve­less tops. Know your size: For broad body types, a brassiere ex­ten­der can be used to ex­tend cur­rent band girth. Straps: Keep a strap­less from fall­ing down by se­cur­ing it with a con­vert­ible strap. If the straps are dig­ging in, it means the un­der-bust band is loose and is not pro­vid­ing ad­e­quate sup­port. Go down a band size. To pre­serve the elas­tic­ity ro­tate be­tween four brassieres and switch ev­ery week. To know if the brassiere fits well, lift your arms over your head, the band of your bra should lay flat against your rib cage with the cups con­tain­ing your en­tire breast. Try sis­ter siz­ing of bra if you do not get the per­fect fit. For ex­am­ple, a 36B will have a sim­i­lar cup size of 34C.
