Model is wearing a a hot sleeveless number.  Hostess comes over and says,"Girls, I know this look is hot....showing your bra straps is not." She then id's herself as Taylor Baldwin.  A few minutes into the commercial she says, "Stop wrestling with those stubborn bra straps!"  she then hooks something that looks like one of those comfort clasps that you attach to seatbelt onto one of those wayward bra straps and then hooks the other strap into a second slot on this little plastic clip so that the bra strap now looks like this X. Excuse me, I am a man and not accustomed to buying bras but didn't Playtex come out with a bra with a criss cross strap like 4 decades ago, and isn't there such a thing as a strapless halter type bra?  Why is it nescessary to pay 19.99 plus postage {whatever happened to shipping?} and handling for 3 pieces of plastic to clip onto an unsightly bra strap?

I am a woman, I am accustomed to buying bras, and yes - this concept has been around since I was a kid.  And I don't think it was even new THEN.  Not to mention, this looks exceedingly uncomfortable, while the bras which have straps that can come unhooked and switch places (thus creating the exact same "X" shape) are quite comfortable - no large piece of plastic stuck to your back.

Not to mention that the strapless bra (which has always worked just fine for me) has been around for as long as strapped bras have.

I'll bet that plastic thingy makes your back itch too.  I wonder if it stays in place or if it rides up or down as you move, thus exposing your bra straps.

I wear Candie's bras that have 3 different strap positions, regular, criss cross, and one very similar to what this contraption does. I wear them criss cross so the straps never fall, it's very comfortable too. There's no reason anyone needs a plastic add on when you can find a bra that does this very thing to begin with.

OK, I'll be honest - I was too lazy to watch the commercial you so carefully posted the first time I looked at this.  But this time I watched it, and OMG - I especially love the part where she's tugging at that uncomfortable sports bra (yeah, cause those sports bras are just so darn uncomfortable!), and complaining about how unflattering it is to her chest.  Then it shows her working out with her super boobs all big and perky.  HAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHA.  Wow.  Who goes to the gym and is worried about their boobs looking big and perky?  You're going there to work out.  Why not throw some high heels on with a mini skirt and do your make-up all pretty?  Don't forget the perfume and the glitter!

Hey, if women looked like that in the gym, I'll bet there'd be fewer fat, out-of-shape guys walking around.

I like the "three different colors to match your bra color." They're hidden, why color coordinate? Must be a women thing.......Confused
