Review: Exposed Envy Bra Accessories.

Underwear is meant to be worn  under your clothes. Hence the name. I am not a fan of pants on the ground or thongs hanging out from the back. I also do not like my bra straps showing. It just looks unkempt and kind of trashy.

Here in Florida we are blessed with weather that allows us to wear cutesy, sleeveless tops practically year round.  Problem is that a) I hate strapless bras and b) strapless bras hate me! I'm not kidding.  They do not stay on. Within minutes, it slides down practically to my waist.  Going bra-less is not an option either. So what's a girl to do? I do have the clear straps and for the most part, I'm okay with them. But if I'm going to wear those, why not go a step further and wear something cute & fashionable instead?

With Exposed Envy Bra Accessories, I can wear my bra, still get the support needed and look cute in the process!  Exposed Envy supplied me with two sets of straps for review. I received the
Pink, White and Apricot Print Fabric Bra Straps & the Red Garnet and Crystal Rhinestone Bra Straps.




My daughter promptly stole the printed ones. She wore it with a pink top and the straps matched perfectly. You could not tell that they were bra straps.  Now, you have to be willing to alter the look of your clothes.  For example, your strapless top, will no longer look strapless. But, you will have fashionable straps to accent the top for a whole new look. They attach easily to any strapless or convertible bra. Plus they are adjustable!

The rhinestone straps that I received are gorgeous! I just wish I had an opportunity to wear them.  I'm sure these will look fabulous with a black, white or red cocktail/evening dress. Definitely for evenings, too much bling for daytime. They lay flat and are not  uncomfortable at all. Thing is, we don't have any fancy, schmancy events coming up any time soon. There is one suggestion that I would make for the rhinestone straps though.  Hook the straps to the back first, then put on the bra, bring the straps over shoulders and then hook them to the front.  Since they are not elasticized, I think that this would be the best way. At least it was for me.

Here are a few of my personal favorites:
Bohemian Brown & Black Bra Beaded Straps Retail $22
I love,love, love the Bohemian Brown and Black Beaded Straps.  Those are totally my style. As you can see in the picture, they look great with an off the shoulder peasant top. I have tons of tops like these and I normally have to slide the straps down so they don't show.  Very uncomfortable. I actually like most of the beaded straps and would love to see them in Turquoise too.

Designer Eyelet Silver Bra Straps Retail $18
Reversible Fabric Sparkle Bra Straps Retail $10 or 3 for $25

These reversible straps are just too stinkin' cute! It would be great to have them in all colors.

All in all, I liked the concept of the product even though you are altering the look of your outfit. But sometimes, that is a good thing. You can wear the same top, for example, and change the look each time by wearing different straps. It's functional yet fashionable.
