I was on a business trip when it happened.
The unthinkable horror.
I can still remember the pain.
The underwire of my bra completely snapped in half and began stabbing me in the chest. Normally I can power through when something is poking me, but this tiny dagger underneath my boob was not going to let up, no matter how much I adjusted it.
I paced around my hotel room, trying to think. I packed another bra, but it wouldn’t work for what I was wearing. I only packed just enough clothing, so I couldn’t really change my entire outfit. The hotel shuttle can take me somewhere to get a new bra but it’s almost impossible for me to find one in my weird size.
I started to feel defeated, but with a little quick thinking, and a well-packed toiletry bag I came up with a solution.
First things first, work the stabby metal back into the bra. You could leave it like that, but it will last for approximately ten minutes, or until you breathe, before it starts stabbing you again.
Next, you are going to need two things. A thin pad or pantyliner, and scissors. If you don’t have scissors and you can’t borrow or find any, you can still do this.
Cut (or rip) your liner into strips. There is no particular method to this, just do whatever feels right to you.
Take a strip or two, and stick it over the hole, making sure it covers the front and back side of the bra.
That’s it! You’re done! The liners work really awesome because they’re basically designed to stay put on fabric for hours at a time. This fix is temporary, but will last for a couple of wears, so it’s perfect if you can’t get your hands on a new bra right away.
