Bra-Barrette Review & Giveaway - CLOSED -

3:11:00 PM

As a blogger I like to write about something new and unique that I think my readers would love to know. I like sharing new things and I also love finding new inventions that would make our life easier or that would pop a question in our head: "now why wouldn't i think of that?". So browsing the internet and finding new products, especially that related to fashions would simply make me happy. One of those newly invented thing that i just found lately is the Bra-Barrette, the simple little thing that could change our life.

"The Escalator Tragedy" :
I was in the supermarket's escalator when my hubby who was standing behind me made some hand gesture code that translate to "honey, your bra strap is falling off your shoulder and about to show under the sleeve" (I was wearing a rather transparent blouse that day). So as embarrassed as I was, I immediately slipped back the bra strap with a discreet hand movement right to where it belong. Pfiuh, thank goodness it was my hubby who was standing behind me and fortunately he noticed it. Who knows what would happened if everybody else in that supermarket took notice of my dangling bra-strap, oh the humiliation!

Now, I'm pretty sure that most of us might have experienced a "strap-slipping" moment in our daily life. Well I do, and not only once. If only there were Bra-Barrette at those times ^o^ Yes, Bra-Barrette is the answer to our bra-strap slipping problem. It hook your bra strap in place so there won't be any slipping-off whatsoever. And what makes me choose Bra-Barrette over similar products on the market is because of the fact that Bra-Barrette is the only one that was designed to be seen and unlike the others, it can also be used on tanktops, dresses, swimsuits, etc as an additional jewelry.

Ok, back to my story. About 2 weeks after my "escalator tragedy" I found Bra-Barrette through browsing and thought that faith has been so kind to me to give me the answer to my "escalator tragedy" problem.
And I was fortunate enough to be able to tried it myself. I received my 2 Bra-Barrettes, one in plain clear and one with cute butterfly charm. The packaging is very professional, it really adds the value of the product. The material is of flexible and durable plastic but the quality and the color is very good. The charm is really cute and light and doesn't look cheap at all. I can't wait to try it and show it off.

This stuff is brilliant and I love versatile things, this bra-barrette is not only for keeping your bra-strap from slipping off but it also great for hiding your bra-strap under your Racer-back tanks. Being a woman in the eastern hemisphere of the world, especially in a country with Malay culture where politeness really counts we don't usually show our bra-strap, so whenever I wear my racer-back tank I must also wear my racer-back bra in order to keep a neat "no-bra-strap" look. But I only have one racer-back bra so I can't wear racer-back tank as often as I like. Now thanks to Bra-Barrette this problem of mine is now solved! I can wear whichever bra I own, slide on the Bra-Barrette and put on my racer-back tank as often as everyday ^__^ I used the plain clear Bra-Barrette for this as it's discrete behind clothing.

And as for the orange butterfly charm bra-barrette, it's very versatile (and fashionable!). I use it to many of my tank tops and spaghetti-straps blouses and dresses. I love showing it off, having a jewel on your back gives you that extra flair to your whole outfit. Here's one of the ways I wore it:

So, I suggest Bra-Barrette for all of you who seems to have a never-ending story of strap-slipping or strap-peeking problems, Bra-Barrette is also the answer to keep that bikini/swimsuit straps in place and to hide that unsightly bra strap from your racer-back or wide T-strap back. The plain ones also has many different solid colors to match your top. And the charmed ones has many interchangeable charms you can choose from, not to mention the sparkling Swarovski crystallized ones for your special dresses. So fashionable!

Psst, if you wanna try Bra-Barrette, they are currently offering a 25% OFF with code "BBWEB". With the price starting off from $3.99, I'll say it's a STEAL! This offer will valid until end of this year.
