Mermaid Rave Bra Tutorial
Bra: the bra was perfect, I got it from H&M in the sale (£7). I saw a few other people in this bra on the night but nobody else had decorated it!
Shells and flowers: ebay
Pearls: necklaces from Primark
anndddd you need a glue gun! I got mine for £6 from Amazon.
The process is easy and really fun. I didn't really plan what I wanted to do, but just kept adding more and more stuff until I liked how it looked. I tried to make the shells focal points, then surrounded them with flowers, and added pearls for highlights. Try it on a few times as you make it to make sure it looks balanced!
I was going to use fabric glue until I saw this video by Andrea Garcia. The glue gun is the best way to stick stuff on, its very secure and gives the bra a lot of structure. Barely anything fell off, apart from a few pearls.
I wore it withe the blue skirt, a flower garland I pinned into my hair and purple lipstick. Originally I was going to wear the bra without anything underneath it but it turned out to be a bit big, so I borrowed my housmate's bandeau to protect my modesty. It was really really fun to wear something so sparkly.
omg i look great.
if you have any questions or feedback on the bra please comment and I'll answer them :)
