Sometimes I feel like I’m messing with my clothes all day long, tugging here, pulling here, and fixing straps, bands and more. Maybe it’s all the crawling around, cuddling, and playing I do each day, or maybe it’s just that clothes aren’t made the way they used to, but whatever the reason, I find myself constantly fixing, smoothing and straightening more often than I would like.
What’s even worse than fixing clothing all day long is fixing your bra, because it’s virtually impossible to be comfortable when your undergarments are driving you nuts. Thank goodness Hanes is determined to end the problem of slipping straps once and for all with their new line of Barely There No Slip Fit Bras that have “no-slip grippers” to keep them in place.
This past month I got to try out the Barely There No Slip Fit Underwire Bra to see if it could hold its own as I moved throughout the day and was very impressed. To avoid slipping straps, the bra has a unique pattern of small no slip silicone grippers on the bra straps. Unlike other silicone straps I’ve tried that irritated my skin or gripped too tightly, the small silicone dots are just the right amount of grip without being overdone or uncomfortable.
As well as the silicone enhanced straps, the Barely Fit No Slip Bra also has this awesome Lycra lining that gives it a slightly “tacky” feel. While this doesn’t seem like it would do much to keep it in place, it was surprising how comfortable and secure the band felt while I moved. I’ve never felt anything quite like it and now that I have tried it I wonder why all bras aren’t made with this technology.
Of course, all of this wouldn’t mean anything if the actual bra itself was uncomfortable, so I was happy to find that it surpassed all of my expectations for fit and feel. I absolutely love that the bra is really lightweight but still full coverage, is super smooth with seamless molded ultra-light foam cups that have a great stretch to them, and the whole bra has invisible seams and is completely tag free. Awesome, right?
You can find Hanes’ Barely There® No Slip Fit line at department stores like Kohl’s, JC Penny, and Macy’s.
