To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Just got them so only tried a few times. I have wanted something to keep my top and bra strap together for a long time. These seem too small to do a really good job. The pin and the clip should be larger. The pin to more easily go thru seams and the clip to more snugly hold the bra strap. It is taking some getting used to where to place them also. Should I place them closer to my neck or closer to the beginning of the sleeve. Hopefully they will be more useful with repeated uses and finding the best placement.
These are tiny little pins, not even the width of many bra straps. I found the point too dull to go through my cotton dress material. And you would have to figure out the exact spot to place the pin since there's no give. The reviews that say a safety pin would work better are right. I'm going to try them! I tossed these out.
I've been searching for a product that does what these claim to do. Its a great idea but, even as small as they are, they're too bulky under clothing. And they grip the bra strap so there is no movement which is ot good. The better solution is to us a safety pin in the shoulder seam, place the strap inside the pin and close it up. Then the strap is within your garment but can still move with your body.
Purchased these to keep my bra straps concealed in my wedding dress, and they mostly did the job. They're bulkier than I expected, and do not actually stay closed all that well--one of them sprung open and was poking me in the back for a portion of the reception, which was unpleasant. The final verdict will probably come when I get the photos, but they seemed to do what they were supposed to, just more clumsily than expected.
I'm using these to hold my bra straps when I wear wide boatneck tops. It works for that. But they hurt So Much from digging into my shoulders, I'm fussing with them more than I did my bra straps without them! I'm going to try double-sided tape for a small piece of moleskin on my shoulders, for under these things, until I find something better.
I didn't realize HOW much I depend on these until faced with the possibility that they were on hold waiting a new manufacturer/China-stuff!
I HATE having my bra straps out and with these I'm confident they're "tamed." They're easy to attach (I use a seam), stay put (even through the wash), and last a long time. I'm a devoted fan. About me/my usage, I'm not too large, somewhat broad-shouldered, overweight and wear tank tops pretty much every day. P.S. THESE are WORTH WAITING FOR! Put it on your Wish List for when they're again available.
Pros: Definitely does the job and keeps the bra straps hidden under the clothes. Should fit most bras with more or less average bra strap sizes. Plastic seems pretty sturdy and durable. Pinkish color makes them easier to hide. In contrast with the ones that need to be sewed to the clothes, these can be reused.
Cons: Can cause minor discomfort if you wear a seatbelt or carry a bag on your shoulder, or anything that puts pressure on the concealers (didn't bother me too much, but can be a deal-breaker for some); they are made of plastic and metal after all. It may be harder to hide them if the fabric is very thin or has no seams on the shoulders.
These are exactly what I was hoping for. At first I didn't buy them because I was afraid they'd be uncomfortable. So I started sewing my own strap holders from ribbon and snaps but that was a pain! And I have a lot of boatneck tops. So I decided to try these, and they're perfect! You can't even tell they're there. Can't feel them, can't see them. And they work great. Couldn't be more pleased.
I was a little skeptical when I found this item. It took me months before I finally gave in and brought it. OMG! I’m so glad I purchased these clips. I have always had issues with strapless dresses slipping down. Not anymore, these clips helps holding them in place. I’m so happy with my purchase that I have told my friends and family to purchase these clips to prevent any issues with tops slipping down or bra straps showing.
Wish I would have found something like this sooner. These clips complete any outfit. Never matters what size I buy if it is a boat neck or slight V, I end up walking around all day making sure my straps are not hanging out.
It’s so nice to feel confident that everything is staying in place to complete my outfit.
Highly recommend these. I do take them out when washing tops. Not sure if you need to or not as it is a very sturdy clip.
