One thing all women have in common when it comes to their lingerie is if something can happen, it will happen. Maybe our stockings fall down or the bra strap police come to get us because our ugly straps are sticking out or we lose our good lingerie to the washing machine monsters who come hack away at our delicates with no regard for the price or fragility. Indeed, we need help.
A few months ago, a friend and I went out for the day. She was wearing the tall stockings that stay up by themselves under her dress pants. We could not figure out why people kept staring at her feet. Finally, she tripped and we both realized what was prompting others to look. Her thigh high had fallen down and was draped all around her ankle and shoe. We laughed so hard, we nearly fell over but the point was the thigh highs were supposed to stay up.
Thinking about that incident, I decided to look around for some neat little tricks and gadgets to help us keep that pricey lingerie looking good and at the same time keep us sane by avoiding those embarrassing moments.
BraBABY – This simple bra washing egg prevents the bra from losing its firm shape and from becoming all twisted and mashed up when washing. Web: brababy.com.
Tag Tamers – Does that tag on your garment have a purpose? Unfortunately, yes and it is not the wisest decision to cut it out. Tag Tamers is one of those obvious but at the same time ingenuitive inventions. Basically, it is a little piece of comfortable fabric that sticks over the original tag keeping it from touching the skin. Web: hollywoodfashiontape.com.
Fashion Tape – We all know how men use duct tape for everything. Well fashion tape is the female version. While there is a multitude of uses for this innovative tape, a couple possibilities come to mind:
- Keeps your wrap dress or skirt from blowing away in the wind
- Serves as a quick fixer for a falling hem
- Prevents bra straps from sliding off the shoulders and down the arms
- Keeps the bust firmly inside a low cut gown
- And stops the shoulder pads from moving becoming padding for another area of the body.
Hold-Up Gel – This is what my friend needed that fateful day. The long-needed and worthwhile invention prevents stay up thigh highs from falling down after having been washed too many times. Just apply the clear gel to the legs and it keeps the stockings in place. Web: tightsandmore.com.
