Bra Straps & More - Say Hello To Versatility

There are a number of alternatives to deal with this issue, including strap clips, strap covers, or strapless bras -

  • Racerback clips / straps - positioned between back straps to convert the bra to a racerback style and / or offer additional support
  • Strap covers - conceal unsightly bra straps with a variety of materials, colors and patterns that can be matched to your clothing
  • Convertible bra straps - added to strapless bras, they can be altered for classic, halter, one shoulder and cross-back tops and dresses
  • Strap cushions / pads - placed under bra straps to relieve shoulder pressure and prevent digging from straps
