When you, as I, sew and develops patterns, you really put a lot of thought into fit and usability. you have properly tried to buy a dress, and when wearing it you bra strap constantly make a peek show on the shoulder. Maby you have a skirt skirt where you have to smoothing out fabric and pull down all the time to make it look good. Personally, I hate that
I do not mind spending 10 min. more in the morning to do that extra just to make myself feel on top of the world all day. I don´t like to be annoyed about a bra strap or find out that the clothes I have on actually only sit well when I stand completely still in front of the mirror, at home in the bedroom, in some obscure lighting and in an odd angel. That makes me feel clumsy, a bit too heavy and insecure. I think we all know the feeling with bad fitted clothes and I could right columns up and down about NOT wearing bad fitted clothes but that is not what this post is about.
I love beautiful necklines but I often think they collapse with the bra strap. The simply solution to that is to buy a strapless bra, or not. I do not know about you, but personally my breasts dos not get the support they need from that kind of bra. At somehow the center of gravity is not changed but only emphasizes and the only thing that makes me feel is depressed. However, the strapless bras with removable straps, they are useful. Simply because it allows you to make small tricks inside the clothes and that makes a world of difference to how it fits.
In all of my dresses, homemade and vintage I sew a little strap or band in. Then I can pull my bra strap through so it stays where it belongs and the same does the neckline.
On this picture, you can see No. 5 Aarhus with the beautiful neckline, here I pull the bra straps through the small band to keep both bar and neckline in place, I think that's pretty smart!
