Extra Button to add higher closure at the neck and to prevent gaping on blouse openings

Use these decorative pins to add closure to tops that need an extra button near the neckline or to prevent gaping at the bustline on front button closures. Any high-quality brand of double-stick tape can be used for a similar purpose with front-button shirts, though the pin may hold more securely on some fabrics.

Miss Oops! Products to help add modesty

Miss Oops! offers several products to add modesty to outfits, such as double-sided clear apparel tape that may be used in between buttons to prevent gaping and around necklines to keep straps from showing. Also look for stylish fabric tubes for the neckline and waistline to add coverage underneath short or low-cut tops.

Cami Secret

Clips attach this fabric panel to the bra straps. While ads claim that the panel may be adjusted higher or lower to control coverage, in reality the panel tends to slide downward to rest on the tops of the bra cups. Another drawback is that the fabric is thin like a slip, so lighter colors are semi-translucent.

Primo Moda Arm Sleeves

Turn a short-sleeved top into a long-sleeved one without wearing a full underlayer using these stretch knit sleeve extensions made of rayon (originating from cotton fiber) and Lycra spandex. Four colors are available.
