DIY Cage Bra: Under the Ivy


EN: I’ve been wanting for some time one of these super sexy cage bras or strappy bralettes that are trending this season. But even though I found lots of beautiful cage bras online, I had two major issues with all of them: not sure if it fits + too expensive. So I decided to make one myself. Let me be honest here: I am not a huge fan of DIY stuff, especially when it comes to clothing, but on rare occasions, it’s totally worth the hussle. I mean instead of paying 30-40$ for a ready-made cage bra, all I did is used a bra I already had that fitted perfectly and bought some elastic straps to saw in the desired place. Super easy and total cost < 3$!

RO: Imi doream de ceva vreme un sutien din acesta foarte kinky cu extra barete adaugate si pe care il puteti gasi sub denumirile “cage bra”, “harness bra”, “strappy bralette”, etc. Am vazut multe sutiene de genul acesta de cumparat online, dar faptul ca imi gasesc incredibil de greu sutiene sa mi se potriveasca (port 80A) cumulat cu faptul ca toate erau destul de scumpe m-a determinat sa pun mana pe ac si ata si sa imi fac singura unul. In fond e super simplu: cumperi niste elastic mai finut si cosi pe un sutien pe care il ai deja cate barete vrei si in ce directie vrei. Nu prea imi place sa ma inham la proiecte din aceastea DIY pentru ca sunt foarte lenesa, dar in cazul aceasta a meritat, pentru ca in loc de 30-40$ am platit fix 10 Lei si mi-a luat nici jumatate de ora sa il finalizez.

EN: I’m planning to make so more cage bras because I’ve seen some models I could easily copy and I’m also planning to buy at least one of these babies because some things just look better ready-made, no discussion here:

RO: Planuiesc sa mai imi fac niste sutiene de genul acesta (urmatorul va fi un model cu pentagrama muahahaha), dar ma gandesc si sa cumpar unul gata facut pentru ca unele lucruri, fara discutie, arata mai bine “de-a gata”.
