    • MYO: Bra

      Underwear Bra 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-

      Bra made from mens underwear
      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.

      Bra Back Front Of Bra
      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!

        how supportive are they? would have never of thought of this.....think i might stay with my walmart 10 dallor bras
      1. FreebieQueen's Avatar
        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 is the cutest idea. I have been wanting a bra to wear around the house so think that I will give this a try.

        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!

        Love this! I've got to make these for my daughters! I'm sure they will be a hit.

        My Girls won't fit in a bra like that, but I love this idea!! Besides my hubby doesn't wear tighty whiteys!!!
      1. MrsHaggerty's Avatar
        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?

        Need something like this to wear under night gown when my grandsons come to visit! Modest, but comfy!

        I love this idea and it's very creative. Talk about re-purposing! I can't wait to try it, thanks!

        Would make great sleep bra.

        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-
