Gee, I have never thought of resizing a bra! I have always just stopped wearing any bra that isn't comfortable anymore. Now, thanks to this tutorial, I can resurrect all those that were cast to one side simply by altering them to fit properly! Thank you for a really helpful post!

What a creative idea. Bras are so expensive that I hate tossing them just because the fit is a bit off. Now I don't have to!

From the women I've compared notes with, I've found that most people lose or gain weight in a single area. My friend just happens to experience the most change in her breasts. Tough! I've always felt so bad that she has to buy new bras every few months. Help is on the way! I can't wait to show her this simple, budget-friendly solution!

I have a hard time finding my bra size unless I go to a place that sells expensive ones and if you lose weight it starts to get very expensive so this is a good way to save money by resizing the one you have. I went to Victoria Secret to get some bras that would fit me right and I heard the lady talking to another accosiate and said we do not carry thet size and so they gave me one in a size they had that they thought would work and I did not like the way it looked and they said it would stretch. Well I was out of $150.00. I could have resized my own and got same result so this is something that is worth a try. Step by step pictures to help. Thanks.

This is a great tutorial and the instructions are really clear, I do agree with ashleroo that you need to buy a properly fitting bra but at this current time I am losing weight and have noticed in the past few months how much my clevage and chest have changed, I do not have the funds to keep buying new bras to find within a couple of months I have changed again so this is great as I can save some money and adjust my current bras and then when I am at my goal weight I can have a properly fitting bra purchase again.

I suppose the idea of resizing your bra is alright, but it just isn't for me. I am a believer in buying properly fitted bras. I just don't think that you can achieve the proper fit on your own at home. I feel like the structural integrity of the bra might be compromised by altering it. I never found bras to be that expensive, so I would probably just buy a new one when my old one no longer fits.

I tried to watch the video about bra sizing and the I was sent back to the opening page. How can I get to the sizing video?

Hi altheavpc, I didn't see a video on the blogger's page. Can you tell me where you saw the video?

I hear all you women. Discrimination against or they just know we will pay it and men will not. Anyway thanks for the tutorial on resizing a bra. I am one to go to a speciality shop because I am big busted only to find out the bra they tried to put me in does not feel comfortable after a few days and I have spent $50 to $60 dollars that I did not have. I am thinking I may try this before buying a new bra but it looks a little hard to do. Anyone have any success.

Thanks this is what i been doing doing to my bras when i know i couldn't keep buying them when i gain or lose weight !

this is fantastic! I like you am a true 34 in around and a D cup! It is near impossible to find a bra to fit me. you get people trying to sell you a bra THAT IS WAY TOo big around and your boobs fall down in front! Funny but NOT!, This has been very instructional to me. Now I am sorry i gave away a whole bag of gorgeous bras to the neighbors, but on second thought, there were wires in them and I cannot stand wires. Why do women's bras need to cost sooo much when men can just go buy one pkg of 6 undershirts (or underpants) for under $10?? This is discrimination! Even our panties that do NOT need so much sew work on them, still cost us more than twice the price for 6 pair. discrimination against women, and I don't need to mention the same at the dry cleaners. We get paid less, eat less, but our clothing is so much more expensive. It makes me sick. Thanks for the great instructional pix! Loved it! great solution!

docht99- I am right there with you about the costs of women's clothing-outer and under wear. I hope that this tutorial will work just right for bra alterations for myself and other people in my family, as well.
