Has anyone ever tried to make beaded bra straps before?

I work at Maidenform (a womens' undergarment store / www.maidenform.com ) and we sell some - but they're not as attractive as they could be. They're for putting onto your strapless/convertable bra. I think they're a really neat concept.

mmm.... beaded straps...
mmm.... beaded anything...
hot glue gun would be a little sketchy i think for the straps.
i'd say sew them on. depending on the beads you're using.
and since bras tend to get thrown in the washer from
time to time. try something a long the lines of fishing line.
it holds up amazingly.... personal experience speaks truth.  Grin

1. try to make something.
2. botch it.
3. hot glue some random stuff to it.
4. sell in ebay for hundreds of dollars.
5. bask in your own glow.

yeah, that'd be cool.

the ones that we sell actually aren't typical bra straps at all. they're just beads - on elastic.

I have actually made a few of these for myself.  I string the beads on elastic cord.  The one in the link is kind of nice and simple.

I made one that had 3 cords of elastic.  For about 1 1/2 inches ALL three cords were run through the same row of beads, then they split off into 3 seperate branches.  I had a single row of beads to hold it all together at 4 spots (one at each end and then the other two spaced up the strap).

These are great for me, because I have been blessed with an athletic build (not so ample on top  Grin).

The thought of a beaded bra stap makes my shoulders hurt, my girls are 34DD's... Cheesy 

Go to a craft store and find some pretty ribbon, I've seen several with beads on them.  Sew them onto removeable straps.  You could also sew snaps onto the ribbons, then you can have a variety for your bra straps! Grin
