#Mompact: Review & Giveaway of Strap Tamers

MompactI am part of an amazing event with Mompact. This event is to have moms helping moms. All of the products involved in this wonderful blog hop were invented by women!
Here’s a description of Mompact:

Welcome to Mompact! Are you ready to rock this economy? Moms are not only responsible for over 80% of consumer spending, but they are also starting new businesses at a faster rate than any other group.

It’s time for moms to support other moms in business the way we do in motherhood. The compassion we feel when we meet a mom in need of encouraging words at the check out line, or struggling to quiet a fussy toddler at a restaurant, is the same kind of compassion and connection moms have in business. We know what the other mom is going through: how she has to juggle work and family, sacrifice financially, and learn along the way. We’re here to provide a platform for that support.


Mompact is all about moms supporting moms in business. If you want to support other moms by being a customer of a local mom business, buying products invented by moms, or contributing to mom charities, we can connect you.”
I was given the opportunity to work with Strap Tamers and with today’s fashions, hiding bra straps is a necessity! This is where Strap Tamers comes in so handy!
Noel Goldman decided to do something about bra straps showing after watching her daughter leave for school with hers showing. That would be inspiration enough for me! “Strap Tamers were introduced to the market in March 2006.” What’s really cool, is Noel was invited to be part of Oprah Winfrey’s Moms Who Made Millions episode!

Honestly, which of us ladies really wants our bra straps to be showing under our tops? So what IS Strap Tamers?

“Strap Tamers consist of a clip (to hold the bra strap( and pin, which is fastened to the inside shoulder seam of a garment. The pin attaches to the clip to your garment and the clip allows you to slip your strap in and out of the confinement easily.”

I just received mine in the mail and only had a few moments to try them out. Took me a second to figure out how to get the pin part out of the clasp. I put the clips on both sides of my tank:
IMG_8586I put the tank on and secured my bra straps to the Strap Tamers. Super simple! I slid the back of my bra straps underneath the tank and tried it out for a few minutes.

Since I’ve only had these for a day or so (I’ve been gone all weekend) I haven’t got a very good feel from them. The only concern I have is how the bra strap is supposed to stay tucked in when it goes down my back. Seemed like it was working its way out. I’ll have to use it more to get a better feel for it.

This is my before photo. I should’ve used a darker bra but the strap is just above my shoulder, definitely sticking out of the tank.
IMG_8581Here’s what it looked like after the Strap Tamer was put on the tank:
