I think these strap tamers are a good idea for hiding the straps for camisoles or light weight bras, however, they didn't work for my needs which was trying to hide the straps of my thick bra straps under a light weight open neck tunic. I'd need something much more robust.
All the reviews here, both good and bad, are correct. The concealers are bulky and if you're wearing something thin that you want to lay flat against your shoulder, this is not the product for you. Fortunately (??) I have big heavy boobs and it makes the bra strap dig into my shoulder and therefore the concealer kinda sits down in that groove on top of the strap, making it more or less level with the rest of my shoulder. I also had an issue with my purse handle (over my shoulder) pushing down on top of it and it unfastened the safety pin part of it. Otherwise, these are amazing and I'm wearing them with a loose blouse today that I've almost put in the Goodwill pile a thousand times because it slips either forward (revealing the goods) or backward (revealing stomach) without wanting to tear it off my body and throw it in a trash can because **it's stayed in exact place**. I've also gotten compliments on this top today and never have before so there is something to be said about it correcting the weird fit of some dresses and tops and making them drape correctly.
I have the opposite problem from that of the majority of this product’s purchasers: my bra straps stay put, but my tops keep slipping off one shoulder or the other. Before donning the top I attach these little guys to the shoulder seams, with their openings facing away from the neckline. It’s fairly easy to slide my bra straps into them. I like them better than the fabric variety because they work for a wider-strap tank top as well as a top with sleeves.
One caveat: I find that they really need to be pinned to a seam, which eliminates using them with raglan-sleeved tops.
I was really hoping this product would work. Seemed like it would. First of all one of the fasteners is damaged. I can't open it like you would a safety pin. Then I wore them twice and both times my left bra strap came out of the clip. I guess since I am left handed, I use that arm more and that is why the strap came out? Going to be returning them because if they don't work 100% of the time, why should I keep them. You do need to "safety pin" them to the seam inside your blouse on the shoulder or you would make a hole in your top. I just noticed another reviewer wrote they aren't any better than a safety pin and I think I now agree...
These are a very nice idea, and work basically as expected. It's definitely better than a safety pin because you can still take the strap out and remove your top without unpinning it. However, they have hard plastic corners that dig into my shoulders next to the bra straps. At the end of the day, they've become uncomfortable. I recently bought some fabric loops with snaps that you can pin or sew into your top and then snap them around the bra strap. I'm going to try them because I think they will be more comfortable.
For over 40 years I had the problem of my bra straps constantly slipping off my shoulders--so annoying. I always wear short sleeves (not sleeveless, so my straps did not show, but it bugged me to feel them slip down my shoulders. Then I discovered these marvelous bra clips. Problem solved! :-)
I have ordered them 3 times and plan to order more. I'm going to buy enough to have clips inside every shirt and dress I own. That way I won't need to remove them from one shirt in order to insert them into another. There's no need to remove them before washing the clothing. The clips are tiny and delicate, but so far (after several months of use), none of them have broken. Even if they did, I'd just buy more. I'm very happy with these!
Update on May 25, 2013: To give you an idea of how much I love these bra clips, I have so far ordered 13 packages of them! I've been using them daily since October 2012. I've never had one break and they always work great to keep my straps in place.
These devices solved the problem of my bra straps showing out a rather wide neck top...not exactly boat-neck, but wide enough to show straps. They are a bit of a challenge to apply and also, a bit bulky, but the problem I had is basically taken care of and they were a bargain compared to what I have paid my seamstress in the past to apply the little fabric strips that have the teeny snap inside. I would purchase them again and for the reasons stated, I would recommend to others.
These clips are awesome! I have narrow shoulders and wearing boatneck tops is always a challenge. I used the clips today and never once had to adjust my top or have exposed bra straps. I didn't have any discomfort either, the clips did not dig into or hurt my shoulders. Love them!
Very easy to use & actually work! I am slump shouldered and my bra straps continuously fall off my shoulders, regardless of how short l adjust them. These babies actually work! Pointer: Pin each one on the shoulder seam with the opening facing you, then slide your bra strap in. If you put the opening your bra strap goes into facing out, your strap will fall out of it.
Great idea! But for the price they should use better quality materials. The plastic can be scratchy (I've used an emery board to file it down to reduce this problem). And because I read reviews that the metal rusts, I have to take them off before washing. It would nice to leave them in the perfect spot on the garment, as it can take a few tries to get it hidden just right. For the price they should NOT rust.
