So after about five years of wearing increasingly clapped-out nursing and maternity bras, I have now rebuilt a nice collection of Proper Grown Up Lady Bras (sized by bra-intervention approved method) However, due to the advent of the child-induced boob fairy I am now wearing rather more, er, substantial bras than of yore, and I also like moulding or light padding to avoid public nippliness. The end result is that my bras do not all fit in my rather small bra drawer, and I do not want them to get squashed/twisted, or to throw any of them away. clutches nice Mimi Holliday numbers to bosom

Is there a good storage approach that isn't "pile of clean bras on the floor"? Er, not that I've done that, no no...

No mine live on the floor too.blush

You could join them all up by their fasteners and arrange them across the room like a sort of bra bunting.

What about a small chest of drawers? Ikea Rast?

I have ballerina boobs so I can fit all my bras in a small tall boy drawer. even then there's room to swing a cat .

I just stuff my in a drawer, they seem to hold their shape ok.
You could put a hook in your wardrobe and hang them on it by the strap?
Or how about converting a small coat stand into a bra-tree? grin

Liking the bra bunting wink

If you don't go for the bra bunting idea, which I think is hard to beat by the way, then I can recommend my method. My wardrobe has a shelf at the bottom of the clothes hanging bit. On this shelf I keep a basket of bras, a baskets of pants and my scarves folded up neatly kondo-style in between.

In a drawer in my bedside cabinet...I have a lot but they are all stretchy soft ones (because I'm v small) so they don't take up a lot of space.

Mine live in a drawer of the bedside cabinet

The Kondo method has revolutionised how I store my bras and pants!

I am liking the bra bunting idea. smile

Possibly more practically, the basket of bras at the bottom of the wardrobe sounds like it might work (also might encourage me to clear out all the unworn shoes that currently live there).

How many do you have and how big are they then? I have four white, two black, two beige. 36DD. They fit nicely into a corner of a heat of drawers drawer. It also contains 40ish pairs of knickers, three slips, some vests and ancient spanks.

BeauGlacons Wed 25-May-16 19:40:51

Not heat, chest, probably 3.5 feet wide x

Mine live on the handle behind the bathroom door. I wash them in the bath when I remember. blush

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Wed 25-May-16 19:44:32

Wow 40 pairs of knickers Beau Is that normal? grin

I have about 50 or so. Maybe more. I fold them in half,so one cup is inside the other then stuff the matching pants in the cup if I have them. They all stand in rows in a pullout drawer in my wardrobe - it's a big ikea pax and I use one of their 1m wide wooden drawers. It's very full blush

AdoraKiora Wed 25-May-16 20:24:01

I fold them in half so the cups sit inside one another and then stuff in a deep drawer.

leedy Wed 25-May-16 20:24:02

I have, er, probably about 20 including everyday ones, fancy ones, sports ones, etc. 32DD

I like the sound of your organizing/storing method, Statistically. Just need to find a bigger drawer....

AdoraKiora Wed 25-May-16 20:24:18

I only have 12 bras though

BeauGlacons Wed 25-May-16 20:31:37

Of course it's normal Ilostit much much cheaper than treating yourself to shoes when everything you try on makes your bum look big. And I used to work v close to a TK Max and could always find something reduced from 15.99 to 1.99 or 2.99 grin

I store my GFs bras in:

Slid under her side of the bed. She can flip through and select what she wants and I am tell when she's running short and can collect them from where ever she's discarded them and get them washed etc.

I have one of those over the door shoe storage pocket things. Bras get folded in half so one cup is inside the other and each bra goes in a pocket. I also store pants, socks, tights, money and sex toys in it grin

MrsSpecter Wed 25-May-16 20:40:43

Its black fabric not see through plastic BTW!

CaffeineDeficitDisorder Wed 25-May-16 20:44:29

I was going to post a boring message about how I just have three now - I am large of nork - so have one light/two dark. I have one in drawer, one as scaffolding, and one drying after hand washing with care. And when one gets scabby I chuck it and replace.

I realise I have a fourth, the Sports Bra. It lives in the Sports Bag, crumpled and unloved.

Clearly I need bosom bunting instead, and must buy more underwear.
