Don’t let this be you…
Yeah, you remember that. It was probably the most entertaining Super Bowl Halftime Show of all time. Entertaining because it wasn’t you. But, you can relate, can’t you? To the time your shirt gapped more than you like? To the time your bra straps just wouldn’t stay put? If you have boobs, you understand.
I actually didn’t plan on writing this little ditty today, but then again, I had no idea that the mecca of fashion emergency supplies would be on super-sale today either. The best part… I didn’t even know I could solve some of the problems I didn’t know I had. Follow that? I’m not sure I did either, it’s ok. But, here’s the skinny:
Zulily offers daily deals on all sorts of things from fashion to kiddo’s to housewares. You sign up and then get a daily email featuring the sales currently running. This morning, I was alerted that my favorite fashion tape was on sale. The double-sided tape that you stick under v-neck shirts to keep them in place. So I clicked through to get a few boxes of the stuff. Then discovered that you can fix almost any clothing woe.
Let me walk you through a few:
Bra extenders: Have a few favorite bras that fit a little snugger than you’d like? This set of three is only $7.99 and help you avoid the appearance of lumpy back fat. Not that any of us have that problem…
Low Down Bra Converter: I recently bought a dress that has a super low back, but I’m not one to go bra-less. So…. I plan to use this little do-hicky to transition a regular bra into a backless bra. For $4.99 it’s worth a try!
Mishap Tape: Do you have any wrap dresses that don’t close tightly enough? Or tops with a low plunging neckline? And, sometimes I have a top that just doesn’t stay where it’s supposed to. That’s when I use mishap tape. To avoid the terrible Janet Jackson nip-slip. Or in my case a bra-slip. ’Cause I don’t not wear a bra.
Earring Backs: I have a propensity to lose the backs of earrings. And then there’s that notorious earring that can’t keep a back on it no matter what. So, I keep borrowing backs of other earrings to use for that one, and then I lose them all. I have something like three earring backs for all of my jewelry. If this sounds like you, grab a whole set of backs and don’t worry about it!
Hem Tape: You know those pants that are the perfect length with heels, but you can’t wear them with flats because they drag on the ground? You don’t want to hem them, because then you won’t be able to wear them with heels, but it’d be nice to have the option? This tape is temporary and allows you to adjust your pants to the hemline you need that day. It also works for curtains… I have many plans for this tape!
StrapDowns: I might be most excited about these guys. They promise to keep your pants secure under boots to avoid the jean bunch-up. Bye bye skinny jeans, these will work for your boot leg jeans too!
Strap Secure: I love my racer back tanks. But, they do me no favors when my bra straps are hangin’ out. These guys turn regular bras into racer back bras. Where have they been all my life?
Boob Tube: Another handy guy, this bandeau adds some modesty to low cut tops without requiring another shirt layer. I got them in multiple colors… Why hold back now?
Just so ya know… I wasn’t compensated or even asked to write a post about this. I just got all kinds of giddy and wanted to share. What woman doesn’t need this stuff? So hop on over and make sure the twins stay put!
