Inside Dress Bra Strap Anchors

This week I'd like to show you something I did for myself for my daughter’s wedding that made my day much smoother.  It seems like a small thing, but trust me, it was important.

Do your bra straps slide off your shoulders?  It seems like no matter what style of bra I buy, this happens to me.  It drives me crazy.  Then I bought a dress with little loops to attach the strap to the inside and it changed my life.  When I chose my mother-of-the-bride dress and it didn’t come with those magic loops, I knew immediately that I needed to add them.

All this requires is some skinny twill tape or ribbon, 1/4 – 1/2” wide, and two small snaps.

Cut the twill tape to 3” long.  Fold one end over a couple of times and sew one side of the snap to it.

Fold the other end under a couple of times and sew it to the inside of your garment with the snap side down.

Sew the other side of the snap in the appropriate place on the garment so the snap sides will match.

That’s really all there is to it.  Mine ended up in slightly different places on each side of my dress, but it doesn’t really matter as long as they can hook around the strap.

With your garments on, slip the twill tape under the bra strap and snap in place.

These tiny loops kept everything in its place all day long.  I had enough to think about, so that was a HUGE help.  I kinda want to do this to all my clothes!
