• MYO: Bra

    Make your own fast, comfy bra using mens briefs Caught without a bit of support? Need a bra in a pinch? Convert an under the butt nut hut, into an over the shoulder boulder holder!
    I know this seems rather amusing, but in all honesty, this really does make a fast, comfy bra. In addition, it makes a pretty funny gag gift as well. A few things you should know-

    To figure out what size underwear you need for your correct bra size, you simply match the waist size of a pair of mens briefs with your bra size. If you wear a size 34 bra, you would use Men's Medium 32-34. A size 36 bra would be a Mens Large It's that simple- really!

    This works wonderfully if you need to customize a bra to fit under an article of clothing, a summer dress, a halter top, etc. These can be made in multiple colors as cotton blend undies dye very easily. Not too mention- they're VERY comfy!

    Here are some cutting guidelines for various styles of bras including scoop neck, v-neck, and a backless bra.

    make a bra from underwear
    The front of the underwear is actually the BACK of the Bra Guidelines for Cutting Front of Bra (on the backside of the underwear)

    Poem #1

    I bought these tighty whities for my hubby,
    who wore them with pride,
    but was never able to locate the laundry room
    so they could be washed & dried.

    So, I used my imagination,
    and a pair of sharp shears too.
    I figured if they could hold up his "family jewels"
    they could support my "girls" too!

    I wanted to get you a lovely gift,
    I thought this up with unusual swift-
    It occurred to me that I could keep your girls from being juggled,
    By simply trimming the front where his plums are smuggled!
    (C)by Liss Burnell

    I stole my husbands under the butt Nut hut
    to make you this over the shoulder boulder holder!

    Here's another Poem to go along with this:

    I pick up his dirty clothes
    'Cause he can't seem to do it.
    This time, you see, I had some fun
    Before he even knew it!

    If he can't take care of his things
    Then I'll just make them mine,
    So I took a pair of scissors
    And a little bit of time,

    and I made a handy dandy bra!
    It's soft and comfy, too!
    And when he dropped another pair
    I made this one for you!

      They're actually surprisingly supportive, but I think it would depend on what kind of underwear you're making them from. The V-Neck one at the bottom was the most supportive, but then again, it was also the right "size".

      Love this! I have a pair of queens so I am skeptical that that will stand on guard for me butt I will give it the old heave ho and report on the result. Thought I had heard everything.

      This looks so fun although I have to say that I would be buying new to try it with. My beloved doesn't wear this style!

      lol...I so love this site. I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY THIS. Unless you have sensitivities to latex, and similar materials you would never believe how hard it is to find a bra in 100% cotton! This makes the cut!

      Anyone who has tried this: Do they stretch out after a couple uses? I notice after some use my husbands undergarment gets looser and 'baggier' does this happen when they are turned into bras as well, or does it stay ..well..up-lifting?

      I LOVE this. But I don't think my "ladies" would be supported enough. I am a DD.

      Hilariously clever. I have never been much of a tighty - whitey fan before, but I guess this under-attire accompanied by a comfy set of Joe boxers is a perfect weekend lounger. Who knew? Gotta try it. Thanks-
