Attach your knickers to your bra and look fabulous

I have been dying to show this of! I think it is hilarious and giggle to myself as I walk around town with a thong attached to my bra.

Everything can be refashioned. Everything, even panties. I had a small handfull of thongs, that was "free gift with purchace" of some bras I once bought. Never used them. When I recently sorted out my wardrobe, they were unearthed and I decided to let an idea of mine come to life.
When I first saw these pictures on Pinterest, my thought was: "That woman is attaching a thong to her bra??"
Link to the picture as I don't think I am allowed to post it here: https://dk.pinterest.com/pin/222646775299791000/

Such a cleavage cover is a good idea. I don't feel the need to cover up completely, but a neckline can become too deep. And also I like layering my outfits, and with these I can add a layer without adding the bulk of a camisole.

I cut the back off of the panties.
Then I put on the cleavage cover-to-be and marked where to put snaps. And added those.

Before:

The sides of the cleavage cover is folded around the straps of the bra and you close the snaps. The lower edge is folded down and around bra edge. A proper tightfitting bra will be able to hold the edge of the cleavage cover in place.
After

Styling. I like how they add a bit of interest to a simple shirt. The same way a necklace does.

Oh, that's not 'sooo' new; 1/2 sorry. At least not for me out here where new villages incl. shopping-Centres currently seem to sprout better than brussels-sprout YET with the disadvantage of (= mho!) ONE fast food outlet per resident (= hence some are looking matching ^^!) and hardly any 'useful' shops apart from Supermarkets which lately tend to have a clothes section as well.
HENCE: when the 'far far away haberdashery and material shop' doesn't have either matching colour lace or the dye-price gets me up the wall, my supermarket can find me storming through their panty-section instead.
Cheeky me was even lucky enough to have had a few existing ones useful on hands which - after all and let's face it: have only ONE fan to look at whilst on my behind yet heaps more when incorporated onto some upper-ware ;-) .
Funniest story ever was at one stage, where the undie was bright orange-red and a perfect match to a thrifted full skirt which turned high low dress for me with the 'undie in-, aehem, on-set' this was fine and perfect and and and until my husband had a 'thinking look' at it and came up with the puzzled question of approx. "Don't I remember THIS lace bit from elsewhere, dear?"

PS:
The lack of 'useful' shops is ONE thing (problem) for a woman; to find a smart husband which is naive-stupid IN time, is another thing/problem ;-) :-D

... and your lace inset-solution is the PERFECT thing, when another layer of clothes (= T-shirt f. example) is not an option due to weather - mho and 'fast learning curve' as migrant to Australia coming from a more moderate climate

What a great idea!

Gerlinde, your comments always crack me up :)

;-) crack and/or cheer up is - mho -wayyyy better than tears.
Since I'm already in the 'high maturity age range' (= years counted not really wisdom :-o + ;-) !) some of my own 'survival-ideas' might even fit for some younger ones = go for it folks - together we're strong(er)!

LG, Gerlinde

Fabulous idea! What a great way to use those coordinating thongs and add a little extra flair to your plain shirts at the same time.
