Let’s face it, strapless bras are the bane of our existence. We all know that having one will be a lifesaver for those special occasions - like wearing that gorgeous strapless dress - but finding the right one can feel impossible.

If you’ve been stuck in this scenario, worry no more! We have a life hack that will help you convert any regular bra into a strapless bra with minimal effort. Here’s how to do it safely and securely.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before starting this simple DIY project, you need to make sure that you have all the necessary supplies on hand. All you need is some strong adhesive fabric tape (the kind used for hems and bridal alterations works best), scissors, and your regular bra.

Step 2: Cut the Tape

Once you have your supplies ready, take one piece of fabric tape and cut it into two smaller pieces with your scissors. You should aim for each piece to be about 4-5 inches long – this will depend on the size of your chest and the shape of your bra.

Step 3: Attach the Tape

Now that you have your two pieces of fabric tape ready, it’s time to stick them onto your bra. Start by positioning one piece of tape on one side of the cup so that it covers up to half of the cup’s circumference – this will help keep everything secure while not making it too tight or uncomfortable around your chest area. Then, do the same with the other piece of tape on the other side of the cup. Make sure both pieces are firmly attached before moving onto step four. This is very important.

Step 4: Test It Out  

The last step is just making sure everything is secure before wearing out in public with your new makeshift strapless bra. To test if everything is in place, try moving around and stretching out both cups – they should stay firmly attached at all times without feeling like they are going to come undone at any moment. If everything feels secure, then congratulations – you’re ready to rock that strapless dress!


Who knew converting any regular bra into a strapless was so easy? With just a few simple steps and some strategically placed fabric tape, you can create a makeshift strapless bra for those special occasions where only a strapless will do without having to go through all the hassle of actually searching for one (which we all know can sometimes be an ordeal).
