Bra straps are inconvenient on so many levels, causing all kinds of problems with bras.
Struggling with bra straps, are you? You’re not alone! No matter what size bra you wear, the straps are uncomfortable at times, and they do not work as they should. They can be unsightly with some outfits, even though it was a trend for a while to have them showing, but that’s not too classy. It depends on the look you are going for. When it comes to dealing with these straps for whatever reason, you may be frustrated that a small piece of elastic fabric can be so difficult with which to deal.
Heck, just check this funny video clip. The girl is having all kinds of problems getting her bra on. She cannot get the straps connected and needs help. So she solicits the help of any passerby, mostly male, each of whom are more than willing to help her get her bra strapped on (ummm, no kidding, right?). Watch and laugh as they let go of the straps and the bra goes flying like a kite, flinging with a life of its own off the woman’s chest! Very funny!
As you just saw in that video clip, when it comes to bras that just don’t seem to fit right, even when they are supposed to be the right size, you may have to consider that your bra straps are not adjusted correctly. You can adjust them so hold you up a bit more, but you don’t want to push them up around your neck. You may have to take some time to adjust your bra straps at different heights to see what feels and looks the best for you. Make sure that you have each one at the very same place when adjusting, or you could look rather uneven when you wear that particular bra.
What most don’t realize when it comes to bra straps is that they do not work well when you have owned a bra for a while, especially if you wear a larger bra size. When the weight of your breasts is pulling down on your straps, they eventually become unable to hold in place as they should. When this happens, you’ll find that the adjustments just slide right back down, it’s time to trash that bra and get replace it with a new one and you’ll eliminate that hassle. Bras don’t last forever, so better to get a new one. You’ll discover the new one will always fit better in all aspects anyway.
Certain outfits and bras just don’t go together because of the bothersome bra straps. You have a couple of options here to deal with this issue. The best choice it go the strapless bra route that fits well, but this is often very hard to find. Many find them uncomfortable because they have to be so tight around the chest to stay in place. Your next best option to go with clear bra straps. At the very least, clear straps are 100 times better than having colored ones popping out of your outfit! They are still slightly noticeable, but they are the better option. Some bras even come with both colored and clear so that you can change them accordingly.
Ulitmately, if you’re daring enough, you could completely eliminate all the problems you have with a bra by just going braless! No more problematic bra, and no more problems with bra straps!
