To keep your bra straps from falling and slipping, you need double sided tape! It’s also great for keeping a plunging neckline in place so it doesn’t reveal too much - that’s what all the celebs do. Use it in between buttons in a button-down shirt to prevent gaps. Don’t have a thread and needle to fix a hem? No problem, just use double-sided tape on it. It’s no wonder it’s also known as fashion tape, ‘coz its uses are pretty much endless! Double sided tape will hold your garments in place and you won’t have to worry about any wardrobe malfunction when you go out!
