Adhesive Bra Insiders Guide

Types of Bras

The adhesive bra is a great solution to backless and strapless dresses, wedding gowns, prom dresses and low cut tops.

Backless, strapless, and seamless, these bra styles eliminate the need for the traditional bra strap and side extensions for a almost invisible look.

The newest adhesive bras are made of soft and pliable silicone cups.

They adhere easily to your body and the great advantage is they can be placed exactly where you want, so you can control how much cleavage you show.

Some backless bras attach separately; others are attached with a front hook that clicks together the front.

And yet other self adhesive padded silicone styles can actually increase your bra size up to one size!

Self sticking bras are available in sizes A through C, 32-38. And, some manufacturers like NuBra, featured on the Oprah Winfrey show are beginning to sell a lighter version with straps for D cups.

If you're not sure what size you are, you can determine your bra size with our easy 3 step bra size calculator.

What are the color choices?

Black and flesh tone, or nude are the basic color choices. Nude works especially well under anything white. Avoid white under white, as it will show through.

Do self sticking bras stay on?

Yes, they do! Better design and materials have improved the stickiness of adhesive bras greatly.

Follow the manufacturer's directions carefully and you'll be able to wear them comfortably for the day.

How To Make It Last

Make sure your skin is clean and dry.

Fashion Forms 16846 NuBra Ultralite
Avoid perfumes, lotions, creams, or oils on any area of your skin that the brassiere will touch.

This can lessen stickiness and make it slide or worse, fall off - something you want to avoid!

If it's your first time, don't rush. Relax! Take your time and read the directions c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y.

It may take a few tries to get your bra positioned comfortably, so be patient...remember Rome wasn't built overnight!

If you're using an adhesive bra or a backless bra for a special occasion such as a wedding or prom, consider having a back up pair.

Better safe than sorry for those special occasions!
