Try it on before you need it in case it breaks like mine did!
on March 24, 2015
I read another review before purchasing that said that the product broke upon the first use, but since the other reviewers didn't report problems, I took the risk.
Sadly, I was in that minority and mine broke before I could use it. Even sadder, it broke as I was getting dressed to go out, so I was stuck with my bra strap showing in the back. The hook part on one end just came off completely, leaving an empty strap with no means to attach it. It didn't look like it was even glued in, let alone sewn in, so I think this one must have slipped by QA.
If you're buying this, try it on before you actually need it. That way you have time to get another if yours fails too.
Two other things to note about the product:
1) If your dress/top is tight, this will probably show. The clasp in the front doesn't lie completely flat across your middle, so it'll probably be visible.
2) The spacing between the hooks and eyes on the clasp didn't match up at all with my VS bra. The one I intended to use it with had much narrower gaps between the hooks than the low back extender. It would have made the straps balloon out a little if it hadn't broken before use, so that's something to keep in mind as well.
The good thing about all this is that Amazon refunded my purchase immediately, and the process only took about ten seconds. I think the product would have been effective if it had worked, so I'm not writing it off completely, but keep in mind the potential for failure!
