Today I am sharing a simple way to deal with annoying clothing straps – they come on everything! No one ever knows what to do with them! Should I cut them off…should I leave them on…are they hanging out the side of my dress? You get the picture!

Well, I have very simple Clothing Strap Solution you are going to love!

For one thing, they serve a purpose. They are there to keep the clothing item on a hanger. Sometimes these straps are a clear rubbery material. I find these are usually there to keep the clothing on a hanger in the store. I usually cut them off.

The ones I have trouble deciding what to do with are the straps that come on fancier items like a strapless dress or top. Even the popular one shoulder dress needs something to help hold it on a hanger. So what to do…

It never fails that if you choose to leave them on they work their way out of the top or dress and hand out the armhole. We have all been somewhere and have seen that person…all dressed up and that white strap hanging out the back of her arm…oh my! Fear that no more!!

Here is my simple clothing strap solution! Lay the dress flat and smooth the strap along the inside of the dress. Secure the bottom of the strap to the dress with a small safety pin. No matter how much you kick up your heels that night the strap won’t budge…no dangling from the are hole either. When the night is over and you return home – simply unpin the strap and hang the dress/top back on the hanger! So easy!

This is a perfect solution for strapless, one shoulder or any top that needs extra hanger staying power!

  1. Good idea. I usually just snip them off as I can’t bear it when they poke out like weird long ears under your arm, or on your shoulders, but then, like you say, sometimes you really need them for hanging afterwards.

    • Thanks Julie! I cringe when I see woman with the straps hanging out of their dresses especially at formal events. I have cut many of straps off, but then there is no way to hang them back up. This works like a charm!

  2. Such a great idea. Even when I tuck them into something they still work their way out but not anymore!!
