Introduction: Halter Bra

Turn a so-so bra into a great halter bra! It's far more comfortable than using a convertible bra, too. This works best with a triangle bra (shown below) or a demi bra.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need:
- a bra you don't particularly like as it is
- scissors
- sewing needle
- thread

The bra you choose should ideally have triangle or demi cups and two rings on each strap. The second picture shows a bra with straps that won't work for this, while the third picture shows one that will work well.

Step 2: Free the Straps

Cut both straps off from where they connect to the back of the bra. Make sure you leave the adjustable strap intact!

Step 3: Measure Twice, Cut Once

Now try on the bra and see how long you want the strap to be. Take the ring from the bottom of one strap and bring it over to the other strap. Make sure that you'll have room to tighten and loosen it as you see fit before you cut off most of the other strap.

Step 4: Two Straps Become One

Loop the newly-cut strap through the ring on the other one and sew shut. You're done! That was easy, wasn't it?

This is great, I will be trying this asap. A lot of dance tops are halter style but with no built-in bra. This will give me lots more dance clothing options!
