Default Do bra tab extenders really work?

I am right inbetween band sizes it seems. At least for comfort. 34s slide up and some 32's are a little tight. I remembered seeing the extenders in a sewing store and wondered it if it fell off or made a small enough of a difference to make it work.

As of now I am attacking the bands with hot water..But that kills them fast.

Any other solutions welcome.

HATE THE BRA SHOPPING!

I used to use bra extenders when I was between 32 and 34. I had a few sew-ins and a few that just attached to the hooks and eyes. They were wonderful for me.

Are those the things that make your bras larger, in the sense of from a 34 to a 36, or something? Heck I dont need one of those, I need something to keep them from slipping, not being snug enough, lol!!

I'm assuming you mean the ones with the tabs similar to regular bras? Yes, they are wonderful. I usually keep the extender on the bra permanently, so I don't have to waste time reattaching it. I got mine at the Bali/Hanes/whatever other brand store in the mall.

It's also a trick of the bra brand. With some brands, a 34 is humongus, and with others, a 32 is painfully small.

You need a smaller band..Or a new bra.

These makers really need to make in betweeny sizes like they did with the cups.
But if the extenders work thats fantastic. Nothing is worse than a poorly fitted bra strap.
It makes me want to just rip it off like the incredible hulk, scream included.

May I also add that I hate I have to pay 30 dollars at least for 1penny of material and 60 cents of labor.
GRAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

No problem. Glad I could hide my hints to make one think.

And if you could find a place that carries a 32G for $30, I would be the happiest kitten in the world.

It's been over a decade now, but I used them during my last two pregnancies and they were wonderful. They used to carry them at any fabric store for under a dollar. Make sure to check your bras to see how wide (the number of hooks) you need for them to match your bras perfectly.
