People Are Obsessed With This Bra Hack For Strappy Tops

TikTok can be an absolute saviour when it comes to solving our fashion dilemmas.

And the latest TikTok hack has cracked the age-old issue of how to go bra-free in strappy tops while keeping covered too.

Jazmin Barnes, 23, came up with the tip and shared her technique on the social media site.

Taking a regular padded insert from an old sports bra she had lying around, Jazmin ripped off the silky layer of fabric to reveal the foam underneath.

With a much stickier texture, the fashion influencer was then able to secure the two loose padded inserts under her top without adhesive - as the rough foam gripped the fabric of her top.

"Honestly, I came up with the idea because I was just being lazy one day," said Jazmin.

"One of those inserts fell out of my sports bra in the dryer and the fabric was starting to peel off of one side.

"So I just ripped off the fabric and stuck it in my shirt because I was too lazy to take the time to put the padding back in the little hole in the sports bra - I'm sure lots of people can relate to that.

"Then throughout the day, I kept checking to make sure the pad wasn't falling out and I realized it was sticking to the sports bra fabric because of the foam, so I tried it on some other shirts and the summer tata hack was born."

Another said simply: "Life changer."

Another added: "Where is your cape?! You're literally saving lives out here."

The trick is as easy as finding an old swimming costume, bikini or sports bra that comes with removable pads, peeling off the bottom layer of fabric and sticking it onto the desired top.

Jazmin added that she is "all for #freethenip" but there are some instances where you want more support and coverage and sometimes bras are too uncomfortable in tighter clothing exposing "lumps and bumps."

And Jazmin rates the hack for being totally free too.

"In my opinion, the best thing about this hack is it's free! I know people across the globe have those inserts lying around in the back of their swim or underwear drawers like I do," said Jazmin.

"I also think this is a good alternative to sticky bras or other expensive methods if you have a backless top, or for summertime because sticky bras tend to slip and slide around when you're sweating in my opinion."

Hurry up heatwave, we've got to try this one out.
