I Like Big Buttons! How To Repair a Bra with KAM Plastic Snaps

Today, I tackled a problem for us moms out there.  Or at least 😉 those of us too busy to fish our bras out of the washer before they go in the dryer.  In all fairness to my mom, she has told me a number of times, they will last longer and work better if I air dry them.  The fact remains that if I remember to get the laundry from the washer to the dryer in the same day, I consider it a miracle :).

Besides wearing them out quicker, I have found that front loading machines like to grab the bra hooks and mangle them.  I have grown tired of the hooks poking me in the back or not hooking at all anymore.

I have now modified all my bras, I find the KAM Snap closures easier to snap and release. Quicker to put on, quicker to get off with a good strong hold.

KAM Plastic Snaps to the rescue with a seam ripper and just a couple snaps… See the picture tutorial below.

1.  Use a Seam Ripper to remove the stitches holding the Bra hooks in place.

2.  Once the hooks are removed, use the Awl to poke a hole where you want to install the snap.  I used a KAM Snap Cap and Socket on this side.

4.  I put 2 sets on the back strap for size adjustment, you could do 3 if you wanted.   I used a 2 KAM Snap Caps and 2 Studs on this side, and spaced them evenly.

5.  Tada!  Success, I am wearing it as I type.  It is much more comfortable and it was easy to snap, I was concerned considering I had to do it by feel, but it was simple to do.
