These Gravity-Defying Bra Alternatives Are Made For Your Strappy Numbers

Bare almost all....

In recent years we’ve seen high demand for an ‘interesting’ top and dress silhouettes. Dressmakers really said, “Why have two straps when we could have cut outs, strapless or even backless shapes?” There’s no denying that they are effortlessly chic and elegant, but then comes the question of the ever-troublesome bra pairing.  

While some women will feel comfortable freeing the nip and going braless, that’s not comfortable for everyone, especially for women with more volume in the bust arena. Enter stage left, the stick on bra (and nipple covers or boob tape).

Sick on bras are the ultimate best friend when it comes to wearing backless, strapless and cut out numbers, because they allow for a modicum of coverage and support without being completely on show.

If you’ve tried a stick on bra before and thought ‘not for me’, we have good news. Recently, the technology of stick on bras has gotten better, allowing for more support, longer-lasting stick and more uses.
