You have done the training, you're feeling fit...now it's time to decorate your bra. Now it doesn't mean wearing your bra over your T shirt... not a good look and very uncomfortable, it means wearing your bra in all its splendid glory, and that goes for the boys too! For some, creating a masterpiece is easy, but for others a little more help is required. Follow our guide and tips on how to make a wonderful creation that's comfortable to wear and cunningly disguises those bits that we would all rather hide. The important thing is to be there with all your fellow walkers raising awareness in true Walk the Walk style
It really helps to have a theme, especially if you are a team. Make sure you decide on something that everybody can easily do and then get together and have a bra creating party
Most probably the one bit that everybody is self conscious about... but never fear, try using fringing all the way around the bottom of the bra, it comes in all different lengths, or create a little skirt to your bra like Lorraine, it looks great and does the job! But beware... whatever you attach to the bottom be sure to allow for the elastic to stretch when you put the bra on!
If you are a little conscious of showing your assets... then use interesting fabrics that you can drape and swathe without adding volume. You can find gorgeous soft materials that will sparkle and shimmer all the way through the night.
Try covering your bra in flowers, pom poms, frills or anything voluminous, it adds inches and can create the illusion of the cleavage you wish you had!
If your upper arms are not quite as toned as you would like... why not try attaching mock sleeves in chiffon, finish them at the wrist and they will keep you warm as well or attach fringing from the straps that will gently hang to the elbow.
On the night if its cold or wet we will supply everybody with a clear weather protector, not a sophisticated piece of equipment but it certainly does the job. Worn over your bra it will keep you warm and dry what ever the weather, and still display your handiwork...don't wait until you are cold...just wear it! Don't forget a bit of Vaseline under the straps and along the bra line can help keep you comfortable whatever the night brings.
Look great as you get ready for your Walk the Walk challenge
