Secrets of Backless Bras

Types of Bras


Backless bras are a lingerie drawer must have - When your back is in the spotlight with a beautiful dress, a strapless top, or halter neck bridal gown, support is important.

You could go bra-less, and risk drooping and ruining the look you've spent time planning for.

But lets face it, saggy isn't sexy! The backless or strapless bra...or adhesive bra is the best solution for this problem.

No worrysome straps, nothing showing, it's designed to be an invisible bra. These brassieres are cleverly constructed for a smooth sleek and seamless bra fit under even the most delicate fabrics.

The best selection for backless strapless bra styles, silicone bra inserts or an adhesive bra is with online shopping, followed by traditional

bra shopping at specialty brick and mortar lingerie and department stores.

Backless bras are fairly basic. They have no straps, at least not in the normal sense.

Different types of bras are available with light underwire support and padding.

Adhesive bras offer great shaping and contouring, and are the ideal choice to wear under clingy and sheer camisoles fabrics that show everything...plus they offer fairly good support.

They are lightweight, self supporting and have a strong self adhesive to keep them in place.

A note of caution - the sticky adhesive is very strong, so be ultra careful when placing or removing the bra. You don't want to peel your skin!

The clear side, or sticky sections gently adhere to the skin using double sided sticky pads for the backless option and are an excellent choice for bride lingerie under strapless and low back bridal gowns.

Another versatile solution without the padding that maximizes cleavage is the ultra-lite adhesive strapless brassiere with a front clasp.

This option is very flexible and allows you the freedom to position the adhesive cups on your breasts wherever you want and wherever they are most comfortable, getting your cleavage just right.

Some styles have cleverly designed decorative shoulder straps (lace, pearls, diamante, etc.) to disguise them under your clothing.

This adds to the feminine look of your outfit.

Colours in self adhesive backless bras are usually white, black, and flesh or neutral tones.

This makes them an excellent choice under virtually anything sheer or low cut.
