Last week, I had read about a new product called Rixie Clip on Curvy Wordy's Blog .  For someone who wears 28 bands (the smallest that most companies make) and finds many of those to be a bit too loose, I was really excited about trying out the Rixie Clip.

They are available on E-Bay for $9.95, and it shipped very quickly. In no time at all, I had my very own Rixie Clip! 

Thanks to Curvy Wordy's post and photos, the clip was easy to put on my bra.  This thing is genius!  I was hoping I would love it as much as I do.  While on, I don't even feel like there is extra stuff going on back there.  The only semi-problem I have with it is the width. 

As you can see, it's not as wide as my bra band (Freya Deco), even though both are two hooks. 

Here is the back.  It sits pretty flush and here, you can kind of see the bunching that occurs due to the width issue.

Here is another picture where you can see the bunching.
All in all, this is a fabulous product and is perfect for bras that need additional tightening!  I do hope that in the future that they will add in additional widths.  It worked pretty well on my Deco, but I also just bought a Curvy Kate Smoothie bra, and there would be no way I could use my Rixie Clip on that, because that is even wider of a band than the Deco!  I have worn the Rixie Clip on my bras every day since I've gotten it in the mail! 


  1. Laura this Rixie Clip is for the 1/2 inch hook spacing two hook bras. I see you have the 3/4 inch spacing two hook bras which have a little wider bands. We will have clips available for all those options as well as the 3 and 4 hook 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch spacings. We are hoping to be able to have a Rixie Clip for most every one who needs one in the next few months. :)

  2. Thank you Laura for your great compliments about your Rixie Clip. As we see in your pics you have a 3/4 hook spacing 2 two hook bra. Those bras do tend to have slightly wider bands. Our Rixie Clips will work for those now however, are made for the 1/2 inch hook spacing bra closures which tend to have slightly smaller band widths. We are getting close in the coming months to having a Rixie Clip for the 2 hook 3/4inch spacing as well as the 3&4 hook 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch hook spacing bras. So hopefully we can fulfill everyones needs no matter what size bra they wear!! :)

  3. So pleased to read the Rixie Clip has proved as useful to you as it has for me! I'm looking forward to seeing how they develop this fab invention going forward. Great review :-)
