Tips on for what is...or rather, what should not be seen

It seems all we women have trouble finding the perfect bra. Either it doesn't fit right, it wears out too fast, or it provides too little or too much coverage! Here are a few inexpensive easy solutions:

To hide those straps without buying a specialty bra, try the "strapper."

For a bra that does not provide enough coverage, try this.

Women with petite shoulders, who find their bra straps always slide off their shoulders, use "happy straps."

Another trick to keep those straps on is to use the "shoulder strap." The shoulder strap doubles as a shoulder pad, so that there are no unseemly creases on your shoulders that show up under t-shirts.

If your back has broadened due to weight gain or pregnancy, before trying the next bra size up, try using a "bra extender" first.

And to get the longest life out of your bra, use the "bra baby."

For a cheaper way to safely launder your bra, use an old fashioned lingerie bag. The bra baby is best suited to molded cup bras, whereas the lingerie bag is fine for sports bras or unlined bras.

If any of you have more ideas on how to get just the right fit, wear, and coverage, leave a comment - I'd love to try your ideas!
