Why won't my straps stay put?

Our Marie Jo lingerie stylists have a clever trick to check how your straps fit. Can you fit two fingers between your shoulder and the strap? If so, you’ve found the right fit. If you can easily fit four or five fingers under the straps, they're not tight enough. As a result, they’ll slip off.

The solution to straps that won't stay put

  • Loose bra straps are one of the most common bra woes. If you have this problem, the first step is to identify the cause. This will help you find the right solution.

  • Your straps are too long: All Marie Jo styles have adjustable straps that can be lengthened and shortened.

  • Your bra straps have lost their stretch: Can’t get your straps as tight as you like anymore? Then it's time for a new, premium-quality Marie Jo bra.

  • Your straps slip off and your cups don't fit: You’re probably in the wrong size. Enlist the help of a Marie Jo lingerie stylist.

Tip: Always check the length of your straps when you put on your bra. The straps can stretch out each time you wash your bra. You can tighten them as needed to ensure the perfect Marie Jo fit all day long.
