Slipping Bra Straps Got You Down? Don't Despair, Darling!

Slipping Bra Straps Got You Down? Don't Despair, Darling!

Slipping Bra Straps Got You Down? Don't Despair, Darling!

At The Perky Lady, we understand the frustration of dealing with bra straps that constantly slip off your shoulders. We're all about the "set it and forget it" approach to bra wearing, and we want you to be able to go about your day without having to worry about your straps. So, let's chat about what causes those pesky straps to slip and how we can help you find a solution!
The Culprits Behind Slippery Straps:
There are usually just a few reasons why bra straps might decide to take a vacation from your shoulders:
The Wrong Fit/Style: This is the most common culprit. If you haven't been properly fitted for a bra, you might be wearing a band that's too big. This means the bra's frame is too wide, and the straps are positioned farther out than your body needs them to be. Or maybe you have a great band but the style of the straps is all wrong for your body. 
Worn-Out Warrior: While the band does most of the heavy lifting, the straps still play a part in assisting all the other parts of your bra to work together to support your lovely assets. Over time, they can stretch out and lose their elasticity, making them less likely to stay put.
Shoulder Shenanigans: Some of us are blessed (or maybe challenged, depending on your perspective) with shoulders that are narrow or slope more than others. It's just like being tall or having curly hair – everyone's body is unique!
Solutions to Slay the Slippery Strap Struggle:
Thankfully, there are ways to combat the slipping strap struggle and achieve bra-wearing nirvana!
Find Your Perfect Fit: A proper bra fitting is like a magical transformation for your comfort and confidence. It ensures all the parts of your bra work together harmoniously, often solving strap placement problems in the process. Remember it isn’t all about the size on a tag.  
Embrace Different Styles: If your straps are frequent flyers, consider experimenting with different styles or designers. Don’t ever feel like you have to have certain styles in your lingerie wardrobe because an influencer or TV show told you that is what everyone needs. 
J-Hook Heroics: Some of our styles come with a built-in J-hook, allowing you to convert your bra into a racerback with a simple clip. This ingenious feature hooks the straps together, making slippage a thing of the past.
Racerback Rescue: If your bras lack built-in J-hooks, fear not! Racerback converters are here to save the day. These nifty clips can be added to any bra to create a racerback style and prevent slippage. They come in three colors (black, beige, and clear) and work with both narrow and wide straps.
Silicone Savior: These little wonders slip onto your bra straps at the shoulder, providing extra grip and preventing them from slipping. Plus, they offer some comfy padding for added bonus points.
