Strap Perfect: Does it Work?

By Lauren Keith - bio | email

Let's face it ladies, strapless bras aren't all that comfortable, right? And nothing's worse than fidgeting and tugging all day long in public. Meg Davis agrees and at the risk of public scorn, she graciously agreed to "try it before you buy it."

"Love some of my tanks and sleeveless tops, but I can't do strapless all day long. It's not comfortable," she says.

Let's see if one of the six Strap Perfect holders can hide Meg's black straps.  Strap Perfect is a clip that basically secures your bra straps in place, pulling them in an "X" shape on your back.  You can pull the clip up high, down low - where ever you need to hide your straps under your clothing. "I suffer for fashion!" Meg laughs.

With a little fumbling around, Meg does get Strap Perfect attached and pulled back to her straps.  It does conceal from the back, but not so much from the front, based on less material from her shirt.

"I got it on by myself, which I'm shocked," she says.

She says it's not really digging into her skin either. The instructions say to loosen your own straps a bit before pulling them into the Strap Perfect slots.

"Let me change really quickly," Meg says heading into a different room to try a different tank.

While she does that, I check out a top of my own that I often have a hard time with. I get Strap Perfect onto my straps by myself, too, and I'm pleased with the coverage.

Strap Perfect hides my straps, but not so fast. Meg tries a top with a crisscross back. After all, Strap Perfect brags it works for all styles.  In this case, Strap Perfect keeps everything in place, but once again, more material on the shirt would conceal her straps better.

"Next wardrobe change!" says Meg.

Time to try this on a halter-style blouse.

"From the front, looks great, from the back, it's a no," she says.

In fairness, halters aren't depicted on the box, and common sense tells us an already backless shirt doesn't have enough material to conceal the straps.

Still, check out the results on a racer-style top.

"It's hiding it. It's comfortable. It's better than strapless, that's for sure," says Meg.

Still, it did take my help with lowering the straps this time.  It's not as easy to do as seen in the commercial.

Now, for the big claim that might make you blush, but one so many of you are emailing me and asking: "Does this part really work?"

Strap Perfect claims it's pullback method can add a cup size to your chest.

"You tell me," laughs Meg.

All laughs aside..."I don't think it added a full cup, but it's comfortable and I think a good push-up bra would do the same," she says.

So, would Meg pay $20 for a set of nine multi-colored Strap Perfect clips? "I think it's a grade 'B'. I'd buy it and wear it with some tops," she says.

Fair enough - Strap Perfect secures a 'B' on this Does it Work test.  You can find it at Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Target and Kitchen Collection stores.
