The Perfect Shade

Whether you show your bra straps unintentionally or as a fashion statement, it’s nice to have them in a matching or complimentary color. With Matchy Matchy, having the right hue on hand is easy. These color coordinated bra straps work with just about any convertible bra. No more need to have every shade of brassiere. Simply change out the straps. Matchy Matchy is great for traveling, too. Bring a single bra, and you can have every color you need. Founder Kristine Ross majored in textiles and invented the idea when she couldn’t find a bra for her peach-colored dress. She chose to make the straps in Columbia, known for its high-quality lingerie and elastic. Italian gold-toned hardware and a single Swarovski crystal add a bit of ooh-la-la. Choose a Matchy Matchy shade that blends in with your outfit or one that pops for a fun color statement. Either way, you won’t need to keep those straps under wraps.

    Hello everyone! I'm proud to bring Matchy Matchy to The Grommet. For too long, we've held onto ugly bras. Now, you can finally add fashion as a function of bra straps. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

    Do you sell bras that you can use your straps on? If not, that may be something to consider. Great idea but I don't own a bra with interchangeable straps. However, I'm sure I can go and find/buy one though. Thanks!

    @Cindy Hello, I completely understand, however there are those unfortunate outfits that always seem to let our bra straps slip out from them. In those circumstances we can use it as an opportunity to flaunt our style instead of being embarrassed of our underwear sneaking out. Many women have found the straps particularly helpful for these occasions.

    I find it somewhat inelegant to say the least to show your bra straps when dressing. Pretty and feminine bras used to be marketed to women as a little something you would do for yourself - like a beautiful lining in an overcoat or blazer.

    It is a comment on the woeful loss of modesty to have bra straps marketed as "fashion” along with the off the shoulder photograph of a woman proudly showing off her underwear.

  • Mike

    5/11/2015 1:27 PM

    Hi Rikki, we understand that Matchy Matchy won't be for everyone as all fashion accessories are. But it does solve a problem many women have when trying to match their outfits. I know Kristine can speak with infinite more experience than I about this so if you have any questions about when Matchy Matchy can be especially helpful, fire away!

  • Kristine
    Kristine – Special Guest
    5/11/2015 1:39 PM

    @Mike Thanks Mike! Yes, under garments are certainly a treat for women. They can also end up peeking out when we least want them to, and so for those instances Matchy straps can be particularly helpful. Women choose to wear the straps however they feel most comfortable, by either letting them stand out or letting them blend in.

  • Sandra
    Sandra
    5/11/2015 2:53 PM

    @Kristine I have to agree with Rikki but I’m guessing her age is close to 40, I’m 68. But I think these are a great idea. Gone are the days of modesty as we used to know. Madonna, Cher, Miley Cyrus to name a few, have changed fashion ideas. For anyone wearing a scoop neck or most of the tops you see for sale nowadays, I would rather see a beautiful strap that coordinates with the clothing, than to see a dingy white bra strap (it looks like your underwear is showing)!! Layers are in and these coordinated straps look like you knew what you were doing when you got dressed!

    @Kristine It's very strange that this showed up in my email this morning--I woke up today thinking about a way to make a covering for my bra straps so that they look like I'm wearing a tank underneath my tops. I've got narrow shoulders for my size (or maybe a wide body for my shoulders :) )and I hate for my bra straps to show. I don't find convertible bras to be very comfortable, so I'll probably pass on your product, but if you come up with a bra strap "disguise" that fits over regular straps, I'll be your first customer.

  • Rogue

  • Kristine
    Kristine – Special Guest
    5/11/2015 2:09 PM

    @Laura Thank you so much for your enthusiasm! Yes, the universal strap hooks ensure that the straps will definitely hook onto other bras and tops that allow for interchangeable straps.

    Would like to have a bra that the straps will attach to. My problem is that in order to get the cup size I need the band size is too big. There is no standard sizing either in the American or Canadian market. The only bras that seem to fit me are ugly as sin. Nearly every client I talk to has problems getting pretty bras that fit and are comfortable.

    While i applaud your wild side and creative side. and i am a big supporter of liberating women - I must say deliberately displaying your undergarments is a little tough for me. I worry that all of the advances we have made that flaunting ourselves so overtly is really taking us a big step backward and does nothing to elevate women. Whether your bra strap matches or not, it should only be seen in private and even then rarely so. I guess the many recent incidences of domestic violence has been lost. I am dismayed that the Grommet should make such a public statement about denigrating women to being "eye candy" or further fodder for sexual harassment.

    I am dismayed and disturbed

    Susan

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    5/11/2015 4:47 PM

    Hi Susan, Matchy Matchy is not encouraging you to deliberately display your undergarments. As Kristine mentions a few times above, sometimes a bra strap is visible or a certain outfit is a color that is hard to match and that is where Matchy Matchy is very useful. It is a fashion accessory to display a little style.

    In no way are we making a statement of denigrating women. If this were a product that did that, which it absolutely is not, I'm certain our co-founders Jules Pieri and Joanne Domeniconi or any one of the women working here would not approve of the product being sold on site.

  • Susan

    so when Kristine states in the first sentence "Whether you show your bra straps unintentionally or as a fashion statement" - how can you make your comment below. Have you even read the product information? Are you aware of the recent controversies about domestic violence? Really i am surprised even a man (Mike) would gloss over such a critical social issue. I worry this continued insensitivity by men have doomed far too many women to a subservient existence. Grommet - you should be ashamed at such a sexist and cavalier attitude to the plight of women.

  • Jules

    5/11/2015 5:45 PM

    @Susan Oh my I am not sure how we got from launching Kristine's innovative product to the deadly serious issue of domestic violence. I would never assume that women are inviting violence by virtue of their clothing choices. Abuse of anyone (man, woman, or child) goes to far deeper issues on the side of the perpetrator.

  • Sandra

    @Jules Wow – that got crazy there for awhile. I applaud The Grommet for providing an outlet for entrepreneurs to launch their new products. I love to see the innovative ideas of such creative people. The crystal and the gold-tone on the straps silently say “go ahead, look at me. I know I’m showing.” The opposite of appearing to be peeking at something you shouldn’t be seeing.

    @Kristine Hi! I too am plus sized and need a wider strap, but I think your idea is great. As for the comments about domestic violence, I've been a victim of domestic violence, and I have to say these bra straps have nothing to do with it and will not encourage it. And they do not make a woman appear subservient. Bras are a necessary garment for most women...why not make them prettier and more fun? Three cheers, teresa

    Can you use the bra straps for anything else? I am an innovator living in Singapore, and I was thinking, what if you could use the bra straps as a possible replacement for broken bag straps? :)

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    5/12/2015 9:53 AM

    Hi Bernard, it's certainly possible. The hook on the end can connect with a loop on a bag if it is the right size and the 20 inch length might be enough to serve as a temporary replacement. I like the innovation!
