Simply Fab: Bra Strap Secret Snap

Just when I think I have exhausted my mom's closet for vintage treasures, I find some booty. Not too long ago I found this silk aquamarine tank. It's oh so Alexander Wang Spring '09. And the best part? It was free! Upon closer inspection, the tank got even cooler.I found these little tabs on the inside of the straps that snapped closed. I hadn't seen one of these for years. And, aha! They nestle in your bra straps so they don't go AWOL down your shoulder. Brilliant. But this made me realize, whatever happened to the bra-strap secret snap? We pay good money for designer tops and so many of mine don't have these. I did find one on a J.Crew top, though. I would suggest making one if you have bra-strap slippage, but it's actually a pretty intricate little detail. I vote to bring back the bra-strap secret snap!

These are really helpful and not stitched nearly enough into our clothing, such a simple solution! Another nice solution to bra straps re designer bra straps, they are nice when the strap is too thin on a tank for anything else or when there are no straps at all, or especially off the shoulder styles when we like the look, but still want the support of out best friend the bra! A great place to get decorative bra straps that are great to replace clear bra straps is Exposed Envy, there are over 100 styles there to chose from and they attach to any strapless bra or convertible bra. www.exposedenvy.com bra straps and accessories is a great place to start!

Or <gasp> you could properly adjust your straps on your shoulders such that they don't slip! The wonders of a modern brassiere usually includes some way to shorten those straps for optimum fit. Use 'em.

As a 36-D, I can say strapless bras don't work for everybody!!! Not even CLOSE. The idea of having a little tab to hold the straps in is a great one, and I too wish they were on more tops!!!

I agree that this needs to be on all tops/dresses. :)

Wow... Why isn't this like a mandatory thing in shirts?

OK...I am so about to go to my closet and look in every single one of my tops to see if I've missed any of these. Because that's amazing. My shoulders are small and oddly steeply sloped so my bra straps fall down constantly.

strapless bras suck for me. When my mother gets my blouses (cropped tops for saris) tailored, she always makes sure they include these, especially when I get one with a pretty back like these http://images.tribe.net/tribe/upload/photo/c03/981/c0398194-40d2-4e10-9656-4b7681699b61better color combinations on mine though...i like an elegant lace up open back. how did i get so off topic? point is, these are life savers.
