Grab a paperclip for this bra hack. I don’t know about you but I get so frustrated when I want to wear tank-tops but my bra straps show.

I wanted to figure out a way to get the support I need from a bra, without the messy look of straps. I was thrilled to find this hack.

Tools and materials:

  • Paper clip
  • Bra
  • Tank top
Wearing bra over top

1. Inside out

Put on your tank-top first and wear your bra over it.

I know it sounds strange but it’s a necessary step. It is going to help you figure out where the straps stick out.

2. Attach a paperclip

Grab a paperclip and slide it onto one of your straps. You can slide it on at the front and then slide it over to the back.

At the back, attach it to the other strap as well.

3. Slide in place

Now your straps are pulled toward each other and away from the ends of your shirt.

Slide the clip up or down, depending on where on the body your shirt sits. This will keep your straps securely out of sight.

    I must be a dork because I can't figure out how you get your shirt back on over the bra? Do you unclip it and start all over? Is the inside out step really necessary or am I missing something? Lol!

    Inside out is for accuracy of paper clip. Once you find bra strap placement, you then remove bra over shirt and wear bra as usual. Now wear shirt over bra. Bra over shirt was for proper bra strap placement. If you are good you probably could skip this step. This way worked so much better for me. Awesome tip.
