DIY Bra Strap Hider - in place on black bra strapsBra strap hiders are fashion lifesavers! Slip them on to hide your bra straps when you're wearing a racer back (or front) garment. With a bit of plastic and a craft knife, you can make your own bra strap hider instead of buying one.


Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 bra strap hider


  • piece of hard plastic packaging
  • pen
  • craft knife
  • nail file (optional)
DIY Bra Strap Hider


  1. Start drawing an oval on your plastic packaging. I freehand drew an oval about 2.25 inches wide and 1.75 inches high. Draw another oval inside and draw two horizontal tabs on each side.

    DIY Bra Strap Hider - add a second oval and two tabs
  3. Move plastic to a hard surface where you can cut with a craft knife. It will cut through so don't do this directly on your tables or desks. Begin cutting out the shape you drew.

  7. Since you will be wearing this against your skin, it's good to file down the edges so they are soft.

With my arthritis in my shoulders, I can not reach behind to use this. Instead, I use a shoe string. I slide under my straps behind my head and tie in a bow.


Then I slide the string down toward the hooks. Just a simple tug on a loose end takes it off.

I do that when I work out! It doesn't always hide when I do that when I wear certain tops.
