Push up bras have been a popular lingerie item for many years, but they can be quite expensive to purchase. If you’re looking to save some money, or simply wanting to create a unique bra that fits your own style, you can make your own push up bra at home. In this tutorial, we’ll go through the steps to create a push up bra that’s both comfortable and functional.


To make your push up bra, you’ll need the following materials:

  • Bra cups
  • Elastic
  • Hook and eye closures
  • Padding material (optional)
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread

Step One: Preparing the Bra Cups

The first step is to prepare the bra cups. You can purchase bra cups from a fabric store or online. If you want to add more lift to your bra, you can add padding material to the cups. Simply cut the padding to fit the shape of the cups and sew it in place.

Step Two: Adding Elastic

Next, you’ll need to add elastic to the bottom of the cups to create the push up effect. Measure the distance between the cups and cut a piece of elastic to this length. Then, sew the elastic to the bottom of each cup, stretching it slightly as you go.

Step Three: Adding Hook and Eye Closures

Now it’s time to add the hook and eye closures to the back of the bra. Cut two pieces of elastic to fit around your ribcage, and sew a hook and eye closure to each end. Then, sew the elastic to the back of the bra cups, making sure they are centered and even.

Step Four: Adjusting the Straps

The final step is to adjust the straps to provide the right amount of support. Measure the distance from the top of each cup to your shoulder, and cut two pieces of elastic to this length. Sew each piece of elastic to the top of each cup, then adjust the length of the straps to provide the desired lift.
