Kmart shopper stuns with little-known bra hack: 'Genius'

The woman wowed people with one simple alternation.

A Kmart shopper has been praised online after she shared a little-known hack to make the discount department store's bras more comfortable.

The woman posted a picture of a lacy dusty pink bra from Kmart in a popular Facebook group, explaining the simple alteration she makes to ensure she can wear them all day long.

"Make sure you cut these out before your first wear," she captioned the photo showing she had removed the side bones from her underwire bra.

"It's super easy because within an hour of wear the bottom is already sticking out and it is super painful.

"The bra still fits fine without the plastic in the sides."

Other Kmart shoppers were shocked by the simple hack, with many saying the woman had solved a common annoyance when wearing the underwear item.


"You can do that! I love the bra but these sides hurt so much!" one commented on the Facebook post.

"You're a genius, thank you. This is the part that always bothers me," another said.

"I did the same with all three of mine I recently bought. They’re so uncomfortable. I don’t have big boobs so it works fine for me!" a third added.

The bra hack comes after another Kmart shopper was applauded after sharing her hack to transform a dilapidated outdoor planter.

The mum explained how she used tile stones and chalk paint to freshen up the drab planter, leaving people in disbelief at the results.

"Best post ever," one person commented. "Beautiful upcycling."

"How frigging amazing! Are you kidding," another wrote.

"Brilliant idea. I have several terracotta pots but hate the colour of them, will have to give this a try myself," a third added.
