The Booby Traps Story....
At Booby Traps we love bra making!
Booby Traps was first established in 1982 by Jill Bradshaw. Being the the first bra kit company worldwide, Booby Traps has had many years of experience in providing customers with good quality bra kits in a lovely range of colours and finishes. We really enjoy creating kits to suit many different tastes, and love sharing our knowledge and experience.
Booby Traps supplies bra kits to sewing fans around Australia, New Zealand and other parts worldwide. Due to many requests from overseas customers, we are now making our products available internationally.
We also have our own Booby Traps Bra making DVD and video and our own BT bra, lingerie and briefs patterns. With many more to be launched in the future.
We are lucky enough to have some of our lovely customers modelling for the BT website. Yes, these girls are not professional! You would not know, as they look so fabulous showcasing the haberdashery and kits.
It is sometimes hard to see what the end result will look like, and we enjoy having encuses to sit down and use our own bra kits!
We are still searching for lovely plus sized and mature age models - so if you fit the bill - please contact us. We would love to have you as part of our photo shoot!
Booby Traps sells direct from our warehouse as a wholesaler to other businesses including swimwear, lingerie and bra-making small businesses.
We also sell direct to the public and stock a number of bra fabrics, including Elastane and Powernet, folding elastic, facing elastics, bra strapping, underwires, moulded cups, laces, fabrics, patterns, needles and other haberdashery items. Our haberdashery range is ever growing and we love to offer a large variety of finshes and colours to accomodate many styles and projects.
The warehouse is set-up and conducts sewing classes and workshops on a regular basis. To see what classes we are currently running please visit our sewing class page.
Booby Traps is developing larger ranges of kits including many new exciting bra kits, brief kits and lingerie kits to be released. Booby Traps has realsed a large number of lovely new lingerie, briefs and bra patterns with more to come. Stay abreast, pardon the pun, of our newest releases, classes and products by registering for our newsletter on our website.

Packing fees are not appplied to any orders. You will be given a tracking number but please be aware Booby Traps cannot be responsible for the parcel once it leaves our warehouse safely. Having said that if delays occur, we will do our best to ensure that the problem is rectified. You will need to send us an email to make us aware of a late or lost parcel, as we do not get notified when each item arrives. You have the option of tracking notifications and also to give Authority to Leave if desired. If registered, you can log in and see the tracking number at any time. If checking out as a guest, you will only have the email to check tracking. Tracking can be looked up at here
We aim to pack orders daily with the exception of Fridays when we are closed, however we may take up to 10 business days in some circumstances. This may not always apply to kits as they take longer to package.
Shipping Within Australia
Standard shipping within Australia is at a flat rate of $10 per order no matter the size (rolls of fabric are an exception to this rule). Express Shipping within Australia is $25 per order - please be aware express orders must be in by 11am for Express (not available on Fridays as we are closed). We understand sometimes you only need small items and the flat rate for postage seems high, but we have the Eparcel couriers collect from our warehouse and cannot go to the post office just to send off small items at a lesser fee. We thank you for understanding that EParcel is our preferred method of sending.
Orders within Australia over $150 are offered a free shipping option.
Standard shipping can take anywhere from 1 - 14 business days depending on your location. You will be able to track your item at all times, so please check your spam folder if you have not received our shipment email. If shipping insurance is not added to the order, we are not responsible if the parcel is lost in transit. We will do our very best to try and locate your item, but once the parcels leave our warehouse, sadly we have no control over ensuring its safe delivery. Lost parcels do not happen often, but can happen, so we recommend you use the insurance option to allow us resend your items if lost.
Overseas parcels are sent via EParcel track and trace.
If taxes apply upon receiving items into your country, these overseas taxes are to be researched and paid by the customer. Please be aware, if the item is returned to Booby Traps due to unpaid taxes, the purchser is liable to pay these return freight costs. We strongly advise you contact your Country tax information centre to discover costs ahead of ordering.
If you wish to pay for insurance kindly email us after submitting your order and we can arrange this for an additional fee. This fee is the actual fee we have to pay Eparcel, not an extra fee paid to Booby Traps.
