Ask A Fit Specialist: My Straps Won’t Stop Slipping… Help!
Our team of Fit Specialists is here to help you find bras that feel like they were made for you. We’ve worked with thousands of women find their perfect fit, so we’re sharing some of our best advice here.
Dealing with slipping bra straps is like having a bad case of hiccups: At first, it’s just a little annoying. But (hic) you’ve got this (hic). You’re (hic) strong. Sure, it would be nice to (hic) be able to finish a sentence and move on with your life, but (hic) you can deal. Then, just when you think you’re free, when it seems like that last hiccup is the final one—hic!—it happens again. And again. And again, bringing you ever closer to the brink of insanity.
We’ve been there. And we can help.
If slipping straps are driving you nuts, the first step is to tighten them. It may sound obvious, but you’d be surprised at how often this step is overlooked. Keep adjusting them over time, too, since straps can naturally stretch out with wear.
If you’ve made your straps as snug as possible and they’re still falling off your shoulders, a different bra style may be in order. perfect coverage and demi bras have narrower-set straps to help them stay in place, and convertible styles like our Lace Balconette or Wireless can be worn with the straps crossed in back to prevent slipping. And of course, a Racerback style guarantees no strap slippage.
No matter what your fit issue—from slipping straps to cup overflow and everything in between—you can always reach our team of Fit Specialists for more help. And if you’ve still got the hiccups, drink water from the wrong side of the glass. Works every time.
