How to keep an open front duster from slipping off?

I'm reviewing what I bought for spring, what I am wearing and what turned out to be a reject.  The open front dusters are not being worn because they keep slipping off.  The only thing I can think to do is use double stick tape.  Any other ideas?

I bought a cape/sweater clasp from AMZ that Iuse. Some just clamp on each side , you can sew them on, or you poke them into the fabric on each side--has a chain or whatever between each clamp to keep the garment closed.

It is a tricky cut or fabric?  I wear a lot of open front dusters, shawls, capes, wraps, and cardigans and I am not familiar with this problem.

Could you provide more details?

If they have collars or pleats, you can hide small magnets (one on the outside and one under your tee/tank/whatever). Keep in mind that the magnets would need to be strong enough for the thickness of the material.

On Etsy there are many 'sweater clips' ...lots of decorative, sparkly or plain ones.

I wonder if it has to do with your body type. I am really small busted and I can’t imagine anything falling off of me LOL. When I see larger busted models wearing these, the look is totally different and they have to keep pulling them over.
