Does anyone know the name of it. I saw it on TV late at night and I thought I had seen them out shopping before....but I cant remember the name of the product.

What it is: A plastic disc that has cut outs to hook your back bra straps in, converting your regular bra into a racerback. I also saw some plain strait bands on HSN or something like that flipping through...but the plastic disc seemed to be more what I was looking for.

Can anyone remember the name of it?
Has anyone used these?

Yes I have used it. It's a little cumbersome to put on since you have to reach over your back to do it. It's worse taking it off. Also, even if you lengthen your straps to the max, some just aren't long enough to pull together so it tends to pull the bra upwards. If you use this, make sure your bra has really long straps. When I'm in a hurry, it's usually more trouble than it's worth; however with the right bra configuration, it is fine.

You can buy it at Walgreens. Basically it is for ill fitting bra straps. If your bra straps fall down, you are wearing the wrong size bra to begin with. The band strap should be very tight against your rib cage and the straps won't fall down. I would just buy a racer back bra if you need that for a tank.

Totally agree. I have a couple...using that contraption would be too much trouble.

Racerbacks open up in the front. That doesn't work for d-cups because they always pop open for me. Pull over ones are too big and chunky to wear under clothing. I have narrow shoulders and should wear a racerback ideally, but my boobs ripping it open on their own sorta annexes the whole purpose of it.
I could stitch up the straps shorter but I don't want to rip apart all my bras either.

Are you guys not flexable? (taking it on and off) As in thats one of those places its hard for you to reach?

Looks like some sort of torture contraption! The torture is probably in getting it off and on.

Well to take it off could you just unhook the bra from the back and slide it over your head if you couldn't get the plastic things off?

This put a picture in my mind of breasts that would look a wee bit too perky.
