This is a pretty smart way of saving yourself from embarrassing bra straps and clothing mishaps. I found this just in time to attend a graduation ceremony and the dress I want to wear is backless. I considered wearing one of those strapless bras but I'll be dancing and I wanna avoid any accidents from happening.

This is actually a genius idea and I kind of immediately want to do this. I hate having to cover a pretty sundress with a cardigan just because my bra straps show, so this is a great solution.
