Slide Lock Adjusters
Once upon a time… in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan (now that’s a long return address!), a student in one of my bra classes asked me if I carried or could get a strap adjuster that she particularly liked, called Slide Lock Adjusters. It was on her ready-to-wear bras but now that she was going to make all of her own bras, she wanted the convenience of these unique adjusters. The thing about them was that the straps would never grow longer during the day under the weight of the breasts. And to shorten or lengthen the strap, it was easy as pie and in the front of the bra, not the back. She even gave me one of these adjusters to take home with me so I could look for it. I am sorry to say that at that time, I could not find those anywhere, try as I might. I hung onto that one adjuster, confident that someday I would find it.
Make a one inch finished tube of fabric (or use strap tape) and fasten one end of it to the back of the bra in whatever manner suits you. Bring the loose end of the strap to the front of the bra, where it will slide through the open Slide Lock at the place marked A in the picture. If you don’t do the next step, the end of the strap will be sticking out at the front of your bra! Slide the strap through the same slot as the strap tab of the cup. The strap will now be inside the cup, where it belongs.
