“Let me hook you up,” ironic words considering what I was about to be handed was my very own set of Strap Savers. This ingenious little invention shortens your straps and saves your bras. Of course, the Strap Saver doesn’t claim just to be for bras, but for bathing suit and tank top straps as well. This is what I was going to test out – the claim that Strap Savers can effectively shorten tank top straps.
I tested it on a finicky red top of mine. It looks fantastic on me, but has no adjusters so I’m always pulling up on the straps. It was annoying and a distraction. I was unbelievably excited to find a fix that didn’t involve picking up a needle and thread.
My top was without any adjusters at all, so I needed to use the Double Strap Saver Solution – two Savers per strap. Normally when you order a pair of Strap Savers it comes with a little booklet on how to use them, but I’d lost mine. Instead, I went to the Strap Saver website to view the instructions on how to proceed. It took me a few minutes and after a few tries, making sure I got the placement even on both sides, my Strap Savers were in place.
The Strap Savers I used were the black one inch and they worked wonderfully. I was able to wear my tank top all day without having to pull at it and worry about the straps falling down. I was comfortable the whole day and didn’t physically feel the product at all. The Double Strap Saver Solution requires a double up of the strap essentially. Even though my straps are quite thick, that aspect of it gave me no issue either.
Strap Savers were comfortable to wear, easy to use, and best of all no sew. A top I would have alternatively had to take to the tailors or try and sew myself was fixed in a much more convenient matter.
Check that out – college student approved. Does it get any better than that? Buy your own Strap Savers and rescue your favorite tank top too!
