How To Smooth Lumps, Dents And Creases Out Of Your Bras

There’s almost nothing more annoying than when your bra starts to get all lumpy and dented. Before you throw it out though, try saving it.  I successfully salvaged a brand new bra that came creased just a couple of weeks ago, and let me tell you, I felt way accomplished. I’m telling you, it’s not so hard. Just follow the tips we found on eHow and MakeupTalk, and your bras will nearly be good as new.

Step 1: Soak the bra in the hottest water it can stand. The care label’s where you’ll find the correct temperature. Don’t use soap, just water. You’re not trying to clean the bra, just get it wet.

Step 2: Remove the excess water by pressing it out of the cups. Don’t wring the bra out—that will only make matters worse.

Step 3: Using your fingers, press on the dents to push them out—it might take some time, but be patient because you will see it start to work.

Step 4: If you’ve removed the padding from the bra, now’s the time to replace it. It’ll help reshape the cups.

Step 5: If you still feel like the bra isn’t fully fixed, MakeupTalk recommends putting the wet bra on and fastening it tightly to allow your breasts to help reshape it while it dries. Obviously this step is not so pleasant, but saving your favorite bra requires work.

Step 6: Finally, hang it to dry with the cups facing outward.

*If you’re trying to rescue a bra that has soft padding or no cups, like this one by Cosabella, try ironing out the creases when the bra is still damp—I’ve done it and it works—just make sure that the iron is not too hot.
