Sometimes bras need adjustment, especially if you have an in-between size (for example, a bigger overall measurement with a smaller cup size, or perhaps you have some pricey bras that used to fit, but are a bit tight now). In any case, they used to sell bra extenders, but to make your own, cut off the hook end on one side and the eye end off the other from an old bra. Then hook the one side and the other, so you have extra room. Sew or pin the excess material between the secured ends. Voila! A bra that fits and won't cut off your circulation!
In addition, it might make a bra loose enough to slip over your head, if you have issues with your shoulders).
P.S. Also save the elastic from old bras to use again on small projects. Lace might be recycled, too.
