How To Put On Your Carnival Wire Bra

Carnival Wire Bras: Tips to Avoid Costume Malfunctions!

We're jumping straight into it.

Shortcut: Watch this video to learn the correct way of putting on your Carnival Wire Bra. Save It! This is the Holy Grail!

Four must-know tips for your Carnival Wire Bras:

1. Be Nice When Collecting Your Costume: Pro Tip #1 – always open and check your package at the band house. Wear something close fitting to the band house and try on your wire bra before you go to ensure the sizing is correct. Don't forget to ask for extra strings. Trust us, smile with the person serving you and motivate them to go around the back and get you extra! They always have! It's your armour; make sure it's battle-ready! p.s. Learn their name in case you have to return to the band house because something is missing.

2. Try Before You Fete: Pro Tip #2 – never wait until the last minute to try on your costume. Avoid on-the-day or the morning of surprises. We promise you: ill-fitting wire bras lead to 90% of all costume malfunctions. Battle scars are cool, but not from a wardrobe malfunction!

3. Backpack and Bra Don't Mix: Pro Tip #3 – resist the temptation to tie your backpack (Wings) to your Carnival Wire Bra. Imagine struggling to remove your wings at the lunch stop or trying to fit into those tiny porter potties and unintentionally removing your bra. Not the vibe! Don't do it!

4. When All Else Fails: Pro Tip #4 – Remember, Glam Hub is your ultimate saviour! Need adjustments or repairs? Carnival Glam Hub offers seamstresses and dressing assistants.
