Hi everyone. Not that I've never worn a dress and have not noticed this before, but what in the world are you supposed to do with those two silken inside straps while you're wearing the dress??? The two dresses I have in mind are sleeveless. I tuck them forward, they peek out, the same if you tuck them back. In the past I have cut them off, that doesn't seem right though. I assume the straps are there for ease of hanging??

Yup, there just for hanging but if they show through the fabric or bother you too much then just snip them.

I tuck them under my bra straps to hold them down.

I cut them off then just hang the dress with a clip hanger or some other way.

Hate the damn things, and keep wondering why we have them... I dont hang up jumpers but they have them too.. and they annoy me so much , even cheap tops have them , so some poor soul in china or wherever sits all day sewing these on to annoy us.. I bought lovely high heels a few weeks ago, Fearne Cotten nude ones with see thru sides.. very nice but hey have a big red triangle label in one shoe that makes it difficult to try on... but if you take the label off they wont accept them back if not right.... that annoyed me too.... it took me three days to have the courage to rip it off as they were a bit expensive for me and I wasnt sure about them on..... so I counted to three and went for it.... brave or what eh..... now Ive got Fearne Cotton nude colour high heels Ill only wear once or twice..... silly moo.

As previous posters have already stated...I just snip them off as well. I have bought these flocked hangers and although a couple of them have snapped, the majority of them are just fine and do a great jobof holding on to the clothing

Best regards, sincerely
