A spaghetti strap (also called noodle strap[1]) is a very thin shoulder strap used to support[2] clothing, while providing minimal shoulder straps over otherwise bare shoulders. It is commonly used in garments such as swimwear, camisoles, crop tops, brassieres, sundresses, cocktail dresses, and evening gowns, so-named for its resemblance to the thin pasta strings called spaghetti.


Spaghetti straps may not meet some dress codes. For example, they are not welcome at Ascot Racecourse.[3]
