I have back problems and when I am in pain the bra strap aggravates the problem. I have tried other bra extenders in an attempt to lessen the "tightness" but still provide some support. None have worked until I tried these. The elastic area has just enough give when I move to make my bra comfortable and not elevate the pain. This is the only type that I will buy from now on....
At first glance these extenders look sturdy and well made. However as soon as I started to use them, I found out differently.They do not stay hooked to the bra. Actually fall off while wearing. Could not figure out why since I have had extenders for years and they always stayed hooked to bras with no problems. Took one of my old ones and compared. Manufacturer cut corners. On new extenders the length of the hooks was shorter than on my old ones. Therefore they were to short to stay hooked and fell out of the loops. I had them fall off as I was getting dressed, and it was total frustration. I bought 2 packs and unfortunately it was too late to return them. I would advise all not to purchase them.
Due to a malfunctioning washer - many of my bra hooks had been damaged and twisted to the point they were stabbing me in the back - but worse - not hooking to the loops. What to do? Good bras are not inexpensive, and it seemed insane to buy new ones, when that was the only problem. Yet, Unnimble Fingers here was not qualified or able to sew on new hooks - and all the loops were fine... THESE worked a treat for bra-repair! Even with one or two functioning hooks, these bra extenders did the trick. 1) Very Sturdy 2) Easy to Use 3) You won't be sorry! I purchased the 4-hook models and they fit all of my various bustenhalters...
First of all I was pleasantly surprised to find these; the last time I remember seeing them was at a Woolworths Five and Dime store in the early fifties!! But, I did a search on Amazon and there they were!! My daughter and I both purchased a bra on line and ordered our usual size only to find that the band was really tight. These gems solved the problem and they seem to be of very good quality.
I had bought some nice looking bras for my wife that are beige in color and very ample sized cups! Everything was good with the bras except the chest bands ran small and were to tight. So I thought should keep them they fit so good. I came across these extenders and thought I would give them a try. They got delivered and they matched the beige color of her bras very well. The rows of clasps lined right up with those on her bra. She tried the bras with the new extenders and they worked perfectly giving more comfort to her nice bras that look awesome on now.
Some of the construction is indeed made with soft fabric. However, and contrary to the description, these things are anything but soft and comfortable. They have some rough corners by where the hooks are. While it may not seem like a big deal when your hands touch them, those exposed corners itch terribly when worn. I didn't last five seconds with one of those. Unwearable.
Every time I get a new order from Lane Bryant, they are always a bit snug. Over time they lose their elasticity. These help me order a smaller size, and over time I can just stop using the extender when things are all stretched out. Comfortable. Easy to use.
