There are a few moments in every woman's life when her bra falls off. Usually, when it happens, you expect a tight but comfortable fit that stays on your body for the whole day. If you have a bra strap that's too long or too narrow, there are some simple adjustments that you can make to make them fit perfectly on your shoulders.
What Causes Bra Strap Slippage and How to Fix Them
There are no one-size-fits-all solutions for every bra-related issue. Here are some of the most typical bra-related roadblocks, as well as suggestions for how to overcome them.
Your Straps Are Loose
If your bra straps are too loose, then the solution is simple: tighten them. However, you can only tighten and re-tighten your straps so many times before you run out of all bra straps.
If your straps have reached this point, it might be due to:
· The cheapest bra is made with poor strap elasticity -- This could explain why the straps keep loosening and slipping even when you adjust them. Investing in a high-quality bra is an investment that will pay dividends when you can go through the day comfortably and without any wardrobe mishaps.
· The bra was not washed and maintained properly -- This can happen even if you use the same machine wash and drying methods. Ideally, avoid using harsh chemicals on your garment by hand washing it in cold water and then drying it flat. This will help retain its elasticity. By the way, laundry experts advocate washing your bra after two or three wears rather than every time you take it off—this helps them last longer.
· The bra has reached the end of its life -- If it has worn for six months or more, it’s time to say goodbye to the old bra and get a new one.
You Have Narrow or Slanted Shoulders
If your bra straps are still slipping off despite you trying to tighten them, it might be that your shoulders are too narrow to support the straps properly. The good news is... You can always change up the bra that you're wearing. There are a variety of styles and designs to choose from, all of which can help prevent slippage.
Try styles with straps that are closer together in the back if you're shopping for new bras:
·Racerback: Racerback bras have straps that meet in the middle of your shoulder blades. This design feature makes them impossible to slip off unless your bra is too big. They are also great for hiding under clothes that have straps.
·Halter: Unlike traditional bras, halter neck straps don't attach in the back to the bra band at all. Instead, they attach to each other behind the neck. This design helps keep the straps secure and prevents them from sliding off your shoulders.
Aside from shopping for specific bra styles, you can also focus on different strap types and options:
· Find narrow-set, no-slip straps: The advertised slogan 'no-slip' sometimes refers to a bra with straps that are set closer to the shoulder blades than standard back straps. Since these kinds of straps are made with sturdier fabrics, they can be more comfortable to wear.
· Criss-cross your convertible straps: Some bras have straps that detach from the back. These are called convertible strapless bras. They can be easily adjusted by loosening the straps and crossing them.
