Once And For All, How To Make Your Sticky Bra Sticky Again
September 6, 2017
‘Tis the season for backless dresses and off-the-shoulder tops. We’re all so excited to show some skin before cold fall weather takes over, so you know what that means… time to whip out the sticky bra! If you’re like me, you probably have a love/hate relationship with this popular style of lingerie. Sticky boobs come in handy when I have an open-back top or dress, but it always becomes a guessing game of whether or not they’ll stay attached and comfortably secure while I’m wearing them. The main downside is that sticky bras kind of lose their stickiness and start to feel gross after a wear or two. And few things are more embarrassing than having one pop off in public out of nowhere—we’ve all unfortunately fallen victim to this. So, what’s the magic hack to making sticky bras, you know, stick again? The simple solution lies in your cleaning methods. Once and for all, here’s how to clean a sticky bra and actually keep it sticky.
So, what’s the secret for getting back that sticky feeling? Just wash your sticky bra with soap and water! Yep, it’s that easy. No towel or cloth necessary. After every use, rinse the bra cups with warm water and a few drops of hand soap to make sure all skin oils and residue come off. Also, scrub off any random bits that got caught in the adhesive. This tip should make your sticky bra usable for, well, ever! Also, who would have thought that adding water could make your bra way more adhesive again!?
After the soap and water rinse, let the sticky bra cups dry overnight. Put them on a flat surface, like your dresser or a countertop, with the sticky side up. If yours came in a little plastic package when you bought it, you can even leave the packaging open and let the boob covers dry in there. You don’t need to worry about wiping off any excess water or drying it with a towel, so resist the urge to pat them down. Like magic, the bra dries on its own and eventually returns to its former sticky glory. Your sticky boobs will be ready to wear with that backless dress you’ve been saving for GNO, and they’re guaranteed to stay put during a night of dancing. It’ll feel like a whole new bra. No more worrying about potential nip slips!
