Carrie Bradshaw can get away with flashing her bra straps on Sex and the City, but I never got behind the fashionably visible undergarments trend. Some girls can pull it off, but when my bra straps show, I feel exposed. When I’m wearing a loose-fitting dress or top, I reach for Miss Oops Mishap Tape ($7).
Made from a hypo-allergenic adhesive, Mishap Tape is transparent, super sticky, stretchy and double-sided. I apply it directly to my bra straps, clothes and skin. A single $7 box contains 36 strips, which can be cut or torn down to fit the job at hand.
Unlike double-sided office tapes used to mount paintings and seal envelopes, Mishap Tape easily adheres to skin and clothing, is hypo-allergenic, won’t stain fabrics and the tape itself stretches to move with your body.
Perfect for hiding bra straps, Mishap Tape also works to close gaps on button-up shirts, to keep strapless tops or dresses from falling, to fix loose hems or to keep “the girls” from peeking out of a low-cut top.
I keep a few strips of it in my wallet because cause ya never know when a hem will come loose. They’re also easy to use. I wore an orange dress to the art store the other day, and my bra straps kept trying to to make an appearance.
I applied Mishap Tape directly to the straps, pressing the dress against the tape to keep it in place.
It took about a minute to do and lasted the entire day.

This is definitely one of those make-my-life-easier products, and they’re safer to use than safety pins. I haven’t fallen so hard for a stick-on product since Walgreen’s Mole Skin entered my life.
Happy Tuesday, ladies! Have a great week.
