DIY Burlesque – How to Make a Rhinestone Bra!

Rhinestones

I love being a burlesque babe, it’s fun, sassy, confidence-boosting and all-round wonderful. Aside from all of this, morphing into an all-singing, all-shimmying burlesque performer isn’t just about jumping on the stage and taking your clothes off, it’s about the whole vibe of your performance – and that includes costumes. But costumes, come at a price. Fortunately for you, my fellow burlesque babes, there are some tricks of the trade that can help you where costume cost is concerned. You can choose to spend a bomb on a bejewelled bra or spend a pretty penny on sequinned pasties, but when you’ve got Love You Burlesque’s handy DIY guide, why should you?

So, here’s how you can make a rhinestone bra that will be ideal for showcasing your lady lumps!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • A bra
  • Measuring tape
  • Strong craft glue or fabric glue
  • Flat-back rhinestones

HOW TO:

  1. Once you’ve chosen your bra (so many styles and colours to choose from, so it might take you a while!), measure the height and width of one bra cup. This will give you a better idea of the space that you’re working with.
  2. It’s time to get creative and plan your rhinestone design! You can draw the cup shape and size (using the measurements taken) on to a piece of paper and then play around with different designs and patterns.
  3. Once you have decided on your pattern, you can begin adhering each rhinestone to the bra with a small amount of glue. Love You Burlesque Top Tip: Try using tweezers or a toothpick to help with the fiddly task of sticking rhinestones!
  4. To complete your bra, repeat your design on the other cup and leave the bra to dry for 24 hours.
  5. Voila! Your beautifully rhinestoned bra is ready to wear and shimmy in!
