    • 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-


      Size:
      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!
      (C) By Liss Burnell

      Or:

      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

      Or
      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".

        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-
