How a Tiny Piece of Metal Saved My Favorite Bras

I tend to buy bras off the clearance racks, which makes it next to impossible to find perfect replacements once they’re too worn. So I’d trudge through the day, pulling the straps back up onto my shoulder when they would slide down because I had stretched and washed away all of the elastic. Then, this tiny piece of ceramic-coated, stainless steel completely did away that need.

The Strap Saver becomes a second adjusting clip, doubling up the tension on your bra straps. It’s incredibly easy to set up, with an instruction pamphlet included, or you can watch some handy videos on their site to help too. They come in four different sizes, 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, and 1 inch, which fit most common bra straps. The colors are a bit limited right now though, coming in only black, tan, or silver.

I will warn you that if you’re a terrible bra owner like I am, and never wash your bras by hand, you’ll need to take the Strap Savers off or risk losing them to the depths of your washing machine. They do arrive in a small nylon bag that you can easily tuck into your underwear drawer for safe keeping, though.


But if you do manage to lose one, don’t worry. You’ll get $5 off every additional set you buy, so it pays to stock up.
