You’ve probably seen those bra strap clip thingies on TV, and I admit that I’ve almost bought them a couple of times because they seem so handy. But for whatever reason, I never pulled the trigger. I don’t own that many tops with crazy straps that I really need a bra strap solution more often than every once in a while. But when I do need one, I sure wish I had one!
Which is why I was really excited when BraBarrettes sent us free samples. Who doesn’t love free?! And these things really work! Not only is it pretty comfortable—I wore mine practically all weekend—but it really does completely disappear under your clothes. I used the clear one, and it was really easy to loop my bra and tank top straps onto. Adjusting the BraBarrette is a little trickier, but I’m fairly flexible and was able to adjust it on my own. It puzzled my boyfriend—men never seem to understand bras or anything associated with them—but he did help me remove it. At one point, I forgot I was wearing it and attempted to take my tank top off in the fitting room of Marshall’s. I ended up a little tangled, but that was my own fault!
You can buy plain BraBarrettes in just about ANY color or ones with Swarovski crystals and little charms that dangle from the center of the Barrette. The decorative ones are for wearing out in the open—think dresses with straps that are too long or just for extra pizzazz on any tank top. The charmed ones aren’t really my thing, but they would definitely be a really cute gift for a teen. And the Swarovski ones would be great as bridesmaids’ gifts!
BraBarrettes also come in three different sizes, because women come in different sizes! There’s petite for teens and petite women, medium for most women and large for plus size women. Prices start at $3.99 for a single barrette and barrettes are also available in multi-packs.
I absolutely will be using my BraBarrette again because it solved my strap problem perfectly, and it gave me a little extra lift! Plus, I have to give them extra points for being a stylish solution!
