That is a good idea. Although I was told by a fitter at Bravissimo that a bra should only be used for up to six months, since it stretches and loses its support. So I am not sure how good a used bra would be.

I use mine until they are no longer supportive or are falling apart. It all depends on how you take care of them and also ifyou have weight loss/gain.

Will sort some of my "old" ones out I think, also it might be worth in future if you are ordering stuff online to make up the money for free delivery etc add the cheapest bra?

I dont know why but every time I look at the thread title, Im expecting to see actual things to do with a bra i.e wind sock? Hanging basket holder? LOL
I thought that too. I thought maybe this should be on the Eco forum, under growing melons. :lol:

That is a good idea and send to the charity, although what size would I buy for them?

whatever is the cheapest though I would go for larger ones as these ladies need the more support - not much poin int buying a 34AAA

Thanks for posting this Maverick. I've got a couple of unworn ones I bought off ebay that are the wrong size. I'd rather send them to this charity than take to a charity shop to be sold for hardly anything.

Well - being a practical sort of lad - I thought that maybe I'd learn something useful - y'know - maybe they could be used for straining Gloss paint, or as moulds for fibreglass bumble bee hostels or something . . . . .

Stupid question? Why is this not in the enviro section, cos it is a form of recycling?

lots of charity shops refuse bras - which reminds me I have some in my charity bag - brand new one form TK Max and it has the original tags etc on it with RRP of 45 - only cost me 2 thugh. might actually go to TK Maxx and just buy some from their clearance rail to send off, as you can get them for 1 or so

I'd be a bit wary of this one, ladies... It could be a booby trap!!!

Don't throw your old bras away - Donate them to charity with the BreastTalk.co.uk Bra Appeal.
