What You’ll Need

First, you’ll need a sports bra that’s too big for you. You can either buy one that’s a few sizes too big, or you can take an old one and cut it down to size. Next, you’ll need some batting or stuffing. This can be anything from cotton balls to old socks. Once you have your materials, you’re ready to start putting padding back in your sports bra!

-Needle and thread or a sewing machine

In order to put the padding back in your sports bra, you will need the following tools:
-A sewing needle and thread
-A straight pin
-A ruler or measuring tape

Once you have gathered all of the necessary tools, you are ready to begin the process of reinserting the padding into your sports bra.

Remove the Old Padding

Many sports bras come with removable padding, which can be a great feature. It allows you to wash the bra without worrying about the pads getting ruined, and it also allows you to put in new padding if the old padding gets worn out. However, sometimes the padding can come out and you may not know how to put it back in. In this article, we’ll show you how to put padding back in a sports bra.

Pull out the old padding

Start by removing the old padding from your sports bra. You may be able to do this by simply pulling it out, or you may need to cut it out if it is sewn in. If you are cutting it out, be careful not to damage the bra itself.

Once the old padding is removed, take a look at the cups of the bra. If they are wrinkled or misshapen, you may need to replace them. Otherwise, you can move on to putting in new padding.

Cut off the old padding

Next, you’ll need to cut off the old padding. Be sure to measure twice and cut once so that you don’t accidentally cut too much material off the sports bra. Once you have the new padding in place, you can stitch it into the sports bra.

Add the New Padding

To re-pad a sports bra, start by taking the padding out of the bra. Next, cut a new piece of padding to fit the bra cup. Make sure to cut the padding so that it’s slightly smaller than the cup. This will ensure that the padding doesn’t move around. Once you’ve cut the new padding, put it back into the bra cup and secure it with adhesive.

Place the new padding

To add the new padding, start by removing the old padding from the bra. Be sure to pay attention to which side of the bra the padding goes on. If you’re unsure, look for any existing markings or labels on the inside of the bra that indicate where the padding goes.

Once you’ve removed the old padding, take a look at the new padding and determine which side is the front and which is the back. Again, if you’re unsure, check for labels or markings.

With the new padding positioned correctly, begin inserting it into the bra cups. Start by pushing it in from the top of the cup and work your way around until it’s fully inserted. You may need to adjust it a few times to get it positioned correctly.

Sew the new padding

Owning a well-fitting sports bra is important to maintaining comfort while exercising, but over time the padding can become stretched out or compressed, leaving you needing more support. You don’t have to go out and buy a whole new sports bra; simply add new padding to give your old one new life.

To sew the new padding into your sports bra, you will need:
-Needle and thread or a sewing machine
-1/2 yard of heavy-duty fabric such as spandex
-1/2 yard of thin batting
-1/2 yard of thin foam
-1/4 yard of gripper elastic
-Pencil or chalk

1. Start by cutting out the old padding from your sports bra. If there is any foam left, you can use it as a template for the new padding. Otherwise, trace the general shape of the old padding onto the thin foam with a pencil or chalk. Cut out two pieces of foam using this template.
2. Cut two pieces of heavy-duty fabric and two pieces of thin batting using the same template. These will be used as layers to encase the foam padding.
3. Place one piece of heavy duty fabric wrong side up on a flat surface. Place one piece of thin batting on top of it, followed by one piece of foam and then the other piece of thin batting. Finally, place the other piece heavy duty fabric on top, right side up. Pin all layers together securely. 4. Sew around all four edges with a 1/4 inch seam allowance, being sure to backstitch at the beginning and end. Leave a small opening for turning right side out later on. 5. Trim away any excess fabric from the seam allowances and clip corners diagonally to reduce bulkiness when turned right side out later on. 6. Turn right side out through the opening left earlier and use a needle and thread or a sewing machine to close up the opening tightly. 7. To finish, cut two strips of gripper elastic 1 inch wide by 4 inches long each . Pin each strip along the top and bottom raw edges on the wrong side of each pad , 1/4 inch from each edge . Sew around all four edges with a zigzag stitch or serger , securing each strip in place . This will help keep your pads in place once inserted into your bra cups .

Test the New Padding

Before you buy new padding for your sports bra, it is important to test it out first. Do this by placing the padding in the sports bra and then putting on the sports bra. If the padding is too thick, it will make the sports bra uncomfortable. If the padding is too thin, it will not provide enough support.

Put on the sports bra

Before you measure for your new padding, you’ll need to put on the sports bra. If you don’t have one handy, any comfortable, close-fitting bra will do. Once you have the bra on, take a deep breath in and out so that your chest is as relaxed as possible.

Test for comfort

The first thing you should do is test the new padding for comfort. Ensure that the padding is not too thick or too thin, and that it does not bunch up or shift around when you move. You should also make sure that the padding does not add too much weight to the sports bra, as this can make it uncomfortable to wear.
