Byebye Frankenbra!

I don't think you guys realize how bad my bra situation was until recently.  I've talked before about how I've never had a bra that actually fits.  And I've also alluded to how I've altered some of my bras so they were, umm... somewhat wearable. 

Well, now it's time to say good bye to all of my altered bras (sometimes they've had multiple operations...) and I just have to show you the worst of the series.

Meet Frankenbra!
Franken bra in all its glory.  It used to be a 38F from Catherine's now it's something like a 30H?

Yeah... the cups started separating because there was still too small for me.
If you can see in this picture I had to sew the straps on to the tightest position

So I altered it once by cutting off the excess and then when that got too big I just folded it over and sewed.  Don't you just love the black thread on a white bra? :D

So, good bye Frankenbra! I can't say I'll miss you.  I hope you like the inside of the trash can.


  1. HA! I love this. Ahh the thrill of desperation. I once cut apart a Freya Pollyanna and put it back together in a different shape using SUPERGLUE. Wow, I'd blocked that memory out ;)

  2. Nice, superglue! :D Yeah, I can't wait until my horrid Frankenbra is years behind me and it's hard for me to remember the times when I was wearing such ill-fitting bras.

  3. Haha, I used to do this, too, with my old 34D's. (Shudder!)
