Slipping bra straps may be cute in the bedroom, but definitely not when you’re in the office or presenting to your bosses in the boardroom. More often than not, the culprit is the shoulder shape of women, especially those with narrow or down-sloping shoulders where the bra strap slips off easily even if you think it is tightly strapped.
Why do Bra Straps Fall off the Shoulders?
There are obvious reasons why bra straps fall off the shoulders easily. Apart from a narrow shoulder, here are other factors:
Straps are a little loose. It is the most common reason, but many women simply shrug off adjusting their bra straps
Cup size is a little too big. As women age, breast volume decreases gradually along the top of the breasts that also creates an empty space at the top of the cup. This causes the straps to slip off. Adjust the breasts to fill the cup, or get another bra with a smaller cup size.
Using bra extenders. These extra accessories may be adding length to the back of the bra, but may also cause the straps to slip off just as easily. Expanding the length of the back of your bra also moves the straps.
Back of the bra is not in proper position. Lacking proper positioning of the bra causes the straps to slide off the shoulders. The bra must be pulled down from the back so that it is immediately under the shoulder blades. Otherwise, it will be left too high at the back while the front slumps, so the straps fall off.
Not the right bra style. You may be wearing a bra style that does not exactly suit your shoulder type. Bras with wide-set straps are good for women with broad shoulders, but not for those with down-sloped shoulders.
Body Adhesive is the Solution to Falling Bra Straps
One quick solution to slipping bra straps is the application of body adhesive on the strap so that it gets glued to the skin and leaves you feeling secured. It’s as easy as lining a thin layer of adhesive on the strap and then pressing it against the skin a minute after it dries up.
Body adhesive saves you the hassle of lifting your bra strap underneath your blouse or shirt too often. This is a quick remedy to a typical day at work where you realized that you wore the wrong bra.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the body adhesive skin-safe?
You can never go wrong with the quality of Hold Up Body Adhesive because it is proven and tested to be safe on the skin. It also provides comfort without causing irritation and reaction.
How long will the adhesive last?
It can last 8 to 10 hours without the need to reapply it every now and then, except when your skin is prone to excessive perspiration as too much skin sweat may decrease the strength of the glue due to its water solubility.
Can it hold the type of fabric used for bra straps?
Yes, of course. If it can handle denim jumpers and heavier fabrics, then it can certainly hold an elastic type of fabric for bra straps.
Will it not damage the bra strap?
No, it won’t damage the strap or any other kind of material being glued on the skin because it is water soluble, meaning the glue can be wiped off easily when cleaned with water.
