Modesty Help

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day about modesty in our children. Especially little girls. The conversation came after I was disgusted from a shopping trip to Target to get my newly 5 year old little girl some shorts to wear this summer. All of the shorts are little short-shorts. I'm really looking for a Bermuda short type style for her. She loves to run and climb and tumble and often times in short-shorts I can see clear up her shorts to her underpants. Anyhow, the conversation swayed away from modesty in our children, to modesty as adults.

I have to admit that my pet peeve is "peeping" bra straps. Or *eek* even worse, no bra when one is really needed. I came across the Strap Perfect at Wal-greens one day last week and decided to give it a try. I have a few favorite bras that seem to creep down my shoulders after a few hours. The Strap Perfect was fantastic. I was able to wear a one of my favorite tank tops out with the kids over the weekend and my bra straps stayed put. I felt much more comfortable knowing that not everyone could see my teal colored bra - I still want to wear fun/funky underclothes (you know, keeping the whole spice alive after 10 years of marriage), but I don't really want to share my choice in underclothes with everyone that I pass by. So in that respect, I really like the Strap Perfect and recommend it if you've got some slipping shoulder straps.

The Strap Perfect thing sounds great. My bra straps are always falling. Probably the lack of shoulders I have.

Thanks. :)

Does it work for regular shirts too? I have beefy shoulders but I can never get my bra straps to fit just right.

Oh, I'm SO happy to hear you say you like this. I have sloping shoulders and my straps are constantly falling down. I just got a new bra from VS with the hook in the back to make it a faux racerback, but I'd love to still be able to use my others. Going to find some while I'm in civilization.

Yes. It totally works for regular shirts, too. I think this thing rocks!
