Halto. Have you heard of it?
No, neither had I until an email dropped into my inbox from the lovely Bex asking if I would be interested in reviewing one.
One of what? I hear you ask! Well Halto is a little bit of plastic. With two holes in it. And it is amazing!
So this little bit of rubber could revolutionise swimwear for us busty ladies. Basically you use it when putting on a halterneck swimsuit or bikini.
If like me, you love a good swimsuit, but stay away from halternecks due to the agonising cheese wire kind of pain as it digs into your neck due to the weight of your breasts pulling the straps into you, this could be the answer to your prayers.
The Halto has been designed to take away that pressure. And it is so simple to use, you just thread your halter straps through the holes and tie as normal. Voila!
The plastic is soft and flexible and really does make a huge different to the pull of the straps into your neck. There really is nothing worse than the feel as the straps dig further and further into your neck as the day goes on.
Speaking to Bex, she offered to send me a set to review and I jumped at the chance. Anything to help with the straps.
A few days later an envelope arrived on my doorstep.
Inside was a twin pack of Halto’s along with a little poem and a pack of sweeties. Win Win situation.
The texture of the Halto is great. Soft and Squidgy it feels good against your skin. But does it actually do anything? I got out a halter neck swimsuit which I love, but equally hate as it hurts so much.
In went the straps of the top and I tied it up. Immediately I could feel that there was no digging or pressure. It actually works! I have to admit to being a little gobsmacked as I genuinely didn’t think it would make that much of a difference. But it really does.
Having N Cup breasts, the weight alone makes a halterneck pretty much impossible. All my recent swimwear has been plain and functional, but thankfully I never got rid of my vintage style polka dot swim suit as I loved it too much to just bin it, even though it really didn’t work for me.
When I was last measured/weighed at a well renown hospital they weighed over a stone. That is a lot of weight to be pulling down on your neck, let me tell you.
The Halto comes in a black and a white twin pack for just £9.99. They are discrete and also once you have tied your bow, you can hardly see them.
I took it even further. I have some halterneck swing dresses that I rarely wear due to the exact same reason. I popped in a Halto and it worked a treat even with a cotton strap. Multi- purpose too!
The Halto was thought up by two busty sisters, who loved a halterneck but not the pain that came with it. Over 85% of bikinis on the market come with halternecks and so they spent five years putting the Halto into production.
It is that good even Bravissimo stock it and it can now be bought as far away as in Australia. Not bad for some squishy plastic, eh?
I have to admit, I have become a real fan of this product. It is just so simple, but that is why it is so great. It doesn’t need bells and whistles to work. It’s a bit like that old Ronseal advert. It does what it says.
I am so chuffed the Bex got in touch and asked I wanted to give these a go, as I had honestly never heard of them before. They really are a great bit of kit and I highly recommend them for every woman’s wardrobe. Swimwear will never be the same again for me, and I can pretty much say if you give these a go, you will love them as much as I do.
Whilst I was gifted these to try out, I cannot recommend them enough and know where to go if I ever find myself needing to replace them.
Thanks Halto, you really are revolutionary and I can’t wait to go on my next beach holiday now!
