Youve found the perfect dress – its slinky, made of silk and has classic spaghetti straps.

But quickly you realise the straps just wont stay up and you relegate it to the back of the wardrobe.

Well do not fear, a nurse has found the perfect solution to keep straps in place – and it costs just £2.

Sharna Horwood bought her dress online but said she was left severely disappointed when it arrived because it just did not seem to fit right on her body.

The 25-year-old explained that no matter what she did, the frocks annoying silky spaghetti straps kept falling down around her shoulders – which meant she constantly needed to pull them up.

She was prepared to try and alter it herself or spend some money getting it done professionally – but luckily she had a genius idea that saved the $90AUD [£50] Born To Be Chic dress.

She went to her local Kmart department store and discovered a set of three pretty hairclips for just $5AUD [£2.80] and decided to use them on her new dress.

She clipped the straps together at the back to make them much more secure.

And incredibly, the genius hack worked beautifully by holding the straps together at the back – while also looking seamlessly stylish at the same time.

Sharna said: I bought the dress online, and I really loved it. But when it arrived, it just didnt fit right.

I planned to wear it to an upcoming event with a strapless bra. But the problem was that the spaghetti straps on the dress kept falling down.

No matter what I did, Id constantly need to pull them back up onto my shoulders. It was frustrating, so I knew I had to do something if I wanted to keep the dress.

I originally had a hook and eye in the back, but it didnt look nice. So, I decided to go to my local Kmart department store and see if I could find something to help.

I came across these nice hairclips and it just clicked. They were only $5 for three, so I bought them and took them home.

They worked perfectly, and it looked like it was just meant to be a part of the dress. The colour suited and blended in well.

I was so happy to be able to fix my dress at such a bargain.

She posted the hack on Facebook and it soon went viral.

She said: The response Ive received online from this has been pretty overwhelming, but its so lovely to get all these lovely messages from people praising my idea.

Id definitely do it again Read More – Source
