shorten straps while leaving them adjustable with The Strap Saver

Frequently Asked Questions








What is The Strap Saver?

The Strap Saver shortens straps easily without sewing.This nifty device revives tired bras and breathes new life into your favorite bathing suits. (you know, the ones that made the girls look just right when they were brand new) It saves a trip to seamstress – or worse, missing out on a beloved article of clothing that boosted your confidence every time you wore it. The Strap Saver perfects dresses and tank tops by helping you to achieve that custom fit while leaving straps adjustable. Buy yours here.

My bra/bathing suit/tank top already has an adjuster, why do I need The Strap Saver?

Straps stretch over time (thanks, gravity!) and eventually tightening with the standard adjuster will not be enough. The Strap Saver allows the strap to be tripled, adding months to the life of your bra.

What’s the The Strap Saver made of?

The Strap Saver is made of ceramic-coated (black and tan) or uncoated (metallic) 18-gauge (Regular) or 14-gauge (Extra-Strength) stainless steel.  It’s very strong, designed to stand up to chlorine and salt water. Your Strap Saver will probably outlive many bras and bathing suits.

How much does the Strap Saver cost?

$15 for the first pair, $10 for each additional pair.  Standard First Class shipping is FREE in the United States and $2 International, regardless of the side of the order. Additional shipping options are available.

What colors do you sell?

Black, tan and metallic. We hope to add more colors in the future. Feel free to contact us and make a request.

Do you have clear Strap Savers?

We hope to have these for sale soon.


How do I measure my bra to find the correct sized Strap Saver?

The Strap Saver works with the part of your strap that has the adjuster, if you have one (that is the little clip on your strap that slides up and down to adjust the length). If not, there is a Double Strap Saver Solution. Measure the width of the strap next to the adjuster or, if there is no adjuster, measure the width of the portion of the strap that you’d like to shorten.

What is the difference between the Regular and Extra-Strength Strap Saver?

Extra-Strength Strap Savers are, well, stronger! (but cost the same) We recommend:

Regular: bras & bathing suits up to a size 40DD, tank tops & light dresses
Extra-Strength: bras & bathing suits size 40DDD & larger, sports bras & heavy dresses

How many Strap Savers should I order?

One set/order will shorten 2 straps with a built-in adjuster, using the Single Strap Saver Solution to shorten your strap. Two sets/orders will shorten 2 straps that do not have built in adjusters, using the Double Strap Saver Solution.

What if I order the wrong size or color?

Exchanges are free. Simply return your Strap Savers and we will exchange them for the desired size or color. Please follow the same instructions as you would for a return.


How do I install The Strap Saver?

See our Instructions or Videos.

Can I wash my bra with The Strap Saver installed?

Yes, but we recommend hand wash only, as for all of your lingerie. Although The Strap Saver is durable, small parts can come loose and cause damage to your washer and dryer.

Can I reuse The Strap Saver?

Yes! The Strap Saver was created to be strong and have a long life. There’s a good chance that your Strap Saver will outlast several bras.

Is The Strap Saver only for bras?

No! You can use The Strap Saver to shorten straps on bathing suits, tank tops and other strappy clothes. Check out the instructions to see how.

Can I use this on my swimsuit? Or any other strap?

Yes, if your swimsuit has an adjuster you will only need the Single Strap Saver Solution to shorten the strap but if you do not have an adjuster you will need to use the Double Strap Saver Solution.
