Ta da! The Strap Saver to the rescue. As you can see from the photo above, The Strap Saver shortens straps and blends seamlessly. In this case, it’s the top piece of hardware on the strap (for those of you that can’t find it!). It works with the built-in adjuster and unlike sewing, the strap remains adjustable. If the bathing suit straps didn’t come with adjusters, we could have easily used the 2-Strap Saver Solution.
As some of you may already know, The Strap Saver was originally invented to save bathing suits. It turned out to be a glorious thing, as not all bathing suit straps are adjustable. Some aren’t built with the same strength as bra straps and don’t offer enough support after a few wears. (Dear Gravity, Some days I hate you. Love, Shari) Using The Strap Saver to fix bathing suits goes back to our original premise – sure, it’s easy to fix if you know how to sew and either have help pinning the swimsuit or can pin it yourself. (if you’re a klutz like me, that spells a lot of holes in my shoulder)
We know that with bathing suits comes salt water and chlorine, so we built The Strap Saver to be extra durable. The uncoated metallic Strap Savers are 18-gauge stainless steel, which will not rust. The black and tan Strap Savers are also 18-gauge stainless steel with a ceramic coating, designed stand up to harsh water like the ocean or the family pool, yet still almost unnoticeable against the skin.
In the true spirit of The Strap Saver and extending the life of everything with straps, once beach season is over, it’s easy to relocate your Strap Savers to other strappy clothes. Just check out our videos on how to install The Strap Saver on the article of clothing of your choice.
