Which Infomercial Products Make the Grade?

My beef with this infomercial is the claim that using Strap Perfect "improves your posture" and makes you look a cup size bigger. It makes your bra tighter if you don't loosen the straps, and it adds a little cleavage, but I didn't find that it made anyone look a full cup size larger or stand up any straighter.

It's a good simple product that hides your bra straps, but the over-promising on bust enhancement and posture improvement bugs me. Hence the B- .

What the company said: "Strap Perfect is the ultimate bra strap solution -- it's easy, comfortable, hides your bra straps and boosts your bust," said Ideavillage Products Corp. in a statement.

Bumpits

Price: $9.99 for a set of three plus shipping and handling
Grade: B
What Worley said: Bumpits have gained some popularity on the runways, on "Dancing With the Stars" and with some celebrities. I tried them and they do the job.

Instead of back combing and plastering tons of hairspray in your hair, you pull some hair forward into your face, place the Bumpits over the crown of your head and then tease the hair back over the Bumpit.

They come in various colors to match your hair and they have little teeth on the edges that help the arch stay in place. They come in multiple heights for more or less bump, and I found that they stayed in place pretty well, especially when I used them with pins or a pony tail holder.

But here's the problem: I don't like the look. The only person I've seen who looks good with this hairstyle is Sarah Palin.

Otherwise, to quote Porter Rawlings, "My friend's 8-year-old kid after he saw the Bumpits commercial: 'Bumpits make your head look big, and they're creepy.'"
