Beaded Bra Straps

You’ve just put on this wonderful ‘hot number’ . . . it’s a sleeveless dress you just bought. You have a new strapless bra on that’s supposed to work wonders for your dress but it keeps sagging , maybe ever so slightly, but nonetheless bad enough to ruin your new attire.

This is the problem with most bras that are meant to be strapless. They may fit fine if you are cute and pert around the bust, but if you are heavily endowed, they just DON’T work.

Luckily, today’s fashion allows for exposed bra straps, so even when you put on a sleeveless top, dress, jump suit, or what not, you can get the perfect lift you need from your strapless bra with fashionable beaded bra straps that now seems to be the rave!

Decorative bra straps that are adorned with beads look wonderful on. They not only hold your brassiere in place, they also do wonders to the shoulders. They make them look pretty, and accentuate the upper arms and neck.

Various Types of Beaded Bra Straps

Bead embellishments used on these bra straps are generally faux gemstones . . . ruby, pearls, emeralds, sapphire, and such “laboratory grown” precious stones. They are applied onto clear straps and range from the simple and chic, to the bold and daring.

They come dazzling or muted, casual, or chic; in many different colours, forms and sizes. And because they are very affordable, it’s the type of fashion accessory EVERY WOMAN and young lady should have in her wardrobe.

Since they are meant to be exposed and can be worn straight, crossed or in halter fashion (shows how flexible and versatile they are), these trendy beaded straps have become a must-have for every fashion conscious woman.

‘Attention Grabbing' Shoulder Jewelry

Yes, these bra straps can be aptly described as attention grabbers! Because the shoulder and back holds some feminine mystery of sorts, these bra accessories beautify your back.

And even though you can’t see your back . . . except a bit of it in the mirror, you'll be astonished at the attention people pay to bare shoulders and backs adorned with jewelry, even if said jewelry is made from synthetic gemstones or cultured pearls. Adorning the back this simple way always looks becoming.


Also referred to as bra jewelry, beaded bra straps are easy to wear and in most cases one size fits all. All that’s required is a multi-way or strapless bra that comes with detachable straps.

How to Attach Them to Bra Strap Loops

Remove the existing straps from the bra and with the same fastening loops and simply replace those with your beaded bra strap hooks.

Then put your bra on the usual way, and enjoy a truly feminine experience. They are especially beautiful and striking if you:

  • Wear them with strapless or one shoulder evening gowns
  • Wear them with halter-neck dresses or tops
  • Want to look elegant and stylish without having to worry about some sagging bra
  • Wish to wear a smart off-the-shoulder dress and don't want your regular straps visible
  • Love to wear T-shirts that dramatically slide down your arms

Don’t Get Into a “Bra Strap Dilemma”

Avoid getting yourself into a "bra strap dilemma" AND try not to wear tacky, frayed or slack straps that barely hold a bra in place. Throw those slack unsightly straps in the bin. That’s where they belong!

If you want to adorn your shoulders and back, wear bejeweled or beaded bra straps. With accessories such as these you can add pizazz and flair to your total ensemble.

Great Gifts Ideas for Girlfriends

They make great gifts if you can’t think of gift ideas for girl friends or women friends.

And if you are a regular "party goer" you will need to have a good collection of decorative bra straps to stay trendy and look stylish and fabulous at all times.
