Alas, we saw a genius trick online and had to give it a whirl — and it really works! All you need are hair ties and safety pins to keep the top exactly where you want it.
You're basically constructing a bungee that will lay underneath your armpit and keep your shoulders cold, whether you're reaching for something in your bag or lifting your arms for something from the top shelf.
What you'll need:
- Hair ties (2)
- Safety pins (4)
What you'll do:
1. Loop one hair tie through a safety pin.
2. Secure a second safety pin on the other side of the hair tie. It will look a bit like a bungee cord with safety pins on the outside and elastic in the middle.
3. Fasten one safety pin to the inside elastic or seam of the shirt (so it will be invisible from the outside), right at the front of your armpit. Attach the second safety pin to the back.
4. Don't forget the other side of the shirt!
5. When dressing, weave your arm over the elastic and through the sleeve so the the hair tie rests under your armpit.
Pro tip: Look for softer hair ties, ideally without the metal fastener, for more comfort.
And you're set!
