Everyone has that one item of clothing in their closet that they avoid like the plague, and it's not because it's ugly. It's because the cut is way too obscure for your standard bra. But that's where the best backless halter bras can help.
Maybe it's a halter bridesmaids' dress, a silky summer top, or a dance costume. For me, it's a romper with thin straps and low sides. Yeah, you could go braless, try a strapless adhesive style, or just rock the visible straps, but some people prefer the support and subtlety that comes with a great bra designed especially for tricky tops. I'm one of those people.
The best backless halter bras utilize features like adhesive wings, waist extenders, low bands, and convertible straps. Unlike your average design, these ensure that your bra stays hidden no matter how low-cut. Some of them even use sleek, silky materials and seamless cups to make your bra is even more discreet; that's a lifesaver when it comes to thin fabrics that tend to bunch and wrinkle.
These halter bras have all those features and more. Some are totally backless, while others pull the band down to offer extra support without the visibility.
1. This Totally Backless Bra With A Deep Plunge Neckline
The LamourLove strapless backless bra uses strong adhesive side wings, padded cups, and clear removable straps to keep you lifted and supported for up to eight hours. It has a deep U-plunge in the front, and it's reusable. Plus, it's available for cups sizes up to a DD. "Finally, a self-adhesive bra for bigger busted women!" one happy reviewer wrote.
2. This Convertible Bra With Both Adhesive Wings And A Clear Band
This super versatile bra gives you the option to attach reusable adhesive wings (as well as four replacement sets) for a totally backless option, or to attach a clear plastic strap for more secure fit.

3. This Backless Bra With Silicone Cups
The Cherioll halter bra is entirely backless, as it uses adhesive wings to secure the bra to your ribs.

6. This Seamless Halter Bra That Disappears Under Clothing
