Face masks are hard to come by these days as people are buying them up because of the coronavirus outbreak. Stores can’t keep them in stock and if one can find them they’re usually marked up. Well, if you have a bra, Yumeno Asahina will show you how to make one.
Asahina went on Twitter to explain how to create a bra face mask if one is desperate. One just needs to take the bra apart and sew the laces onto a cup.
She was half-joking saying she would use her invention in a pinch. Asahina said that the bra face mask was comfortable and breathable like a real face mask. As for its effectiveness, who knows? But it’s got to be better than nothing.
Her tweets went viral with many having a good laugh. However, some men said that they don’t have bras and asked what they should do. To which Asahina told them to get one from their mother. Hopefully, this won’t lead to a bra shortage or a lot of mothers wondering where their bras went.
However, not only is a bra unlikely to have the same protective qualities as a surgical mask, experts stress that masks of any kind aren’t necessarily going to stop you catching the virus.
Of course this tweet quickly start viral on the web…and many new ways to use bras was found…
