How to Make a Face Mask Out of a Bra

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

You can make a protective mask out of a bra, which DJ Justin Credible is making available via her Instagram where she can also give you a tutorial. “They make sense as a mask. They have the perfect amount of this foam padding in each cup. And you can take the underwire and just fit it right onto your nose,” she tells us. “When you really look at the structure of a bra, they’re almost masks instantly. They’re all finished on the edges.”

DJ Justin starts talking bra masks at the 8:30 mark of this Kinky Salon Live video that’s part of the Kinky Salon presents: LOVE in the time of CORONA Kickstarter campaign (which also offers custom face masks and mask making tutorials).  “It’s such an intimate piece of apparel because of people’s bosoms,” DJ Justin says. “The initial giggle that I had was the fact that it was something on my breast and now it’s on my face. Are people are going to be looking at my face and saying, ‘Is she wearing a bra on her face?’

“If you take the bra itself and look at it, you can see how it fits over most faces pretty easily. Each bra is different because we all have different breasts and different cup sizes, so it does seem to be better face coverage with the larger breast. Thinner bras don’t work as well in my experience.”
