This Bra Hack is Perfect for Hiding Your Straps

2 Materials
5 Minutes

I bet you have a favorite halter neck dress or top that you love to wear. But you hate that your bra straps show on the shoulders and you don’t have or can’t find a halter bra?

Well, here’s how I transform my regular bra into one I can wear under a halter in a couple of minutes.

Tools and materials:

  • Halter neck dress or top
  • Regular bra
Is your bra showing?

1. Wear bra

Put your bra on as normal. This is exactly what I’m talking about. The cutaway shoulders of my dress show my bra straps and I hate when this happens.

Unclipping straps

2. Unclip

Unclip both the straps at the back of the bra.


3. Adjust

Extend the straps to their full length by sliding the plastic buckle as far as you can towards the bra and pulling the strap through.

Crossing over

4. Cross over

Cross the straps over in front of you. 

I’m doing this over my dress for modesty, but of course you would do this before putting on your dress or top.


5. Fasten

Clip the straps together behind your neck.

Adjust their length if you need to.

    Great deal! I’ll try it next time. This time I wore a dress my straps did show and I put a little sign under the dress to hide the straps. Next time I’ll try this little idea.

    Nice hack for those who can use it. I cannot. My bras don't unhook, they are sewn to the bra at both ends. For those who can use it, thank you. Blessings.
