DIY Bra Extender

I recently purchased a new bra that is my correct size but it felt terribly snug so I decided to make a bra extender.

You'll need an old bra, a seam ripper, scissors and either a needle and thread or a sewing machine.

Start by picking out an old bra (this is one I grew out of years ago and for whatever reason hung on to. If you can, get a bra that has the same number of hooks and eyes as the bra you want to extend.

Using your seam ripper remove the hooks and eyes from your bra.

Next pin your hoods on the back side of your eyes and sew.

Hook your hooks to the last row of eyes on your bra and wear as normal.


  1. Such a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I guess this is a perfect way to make old bras useful again. Bra extenders would make you feel comfortable even if you gain weights. And I guess this is perfect for pregnant women too.
