The 9 Best Adhesive Bras That Actually Stay On
In theory, adhesive bras are the best thing to happen to undergarment fashion since the near-extinction of corsets. Allow me to rephrase that: adhesive bras that actually stay on and work under a variety of clothing are golden. The many other adhesive bras that don't actually adhere to skin, or that stick for 10 seconds and then slide off — not to mention stick-on bras that are utterly painful to remove — are the ones that give truly great adhesive bras a bad name.
I say that with confidence because, believe it or not, there are amazing adhesive bras that support large and small boobs, without cumbersome straps, awkward boning, or (in most cases) uncomfortable underwire. The latest and most innovative adhesive bras feature backless designs and sometimes even U-shaped necklines that allow you to easily wear them under halters, backless gowns, and deep V-neck blouses. Some boast gel cups that give your breasts a lift (or create more cleavage, if that's your thing), while others help minimize a larger chest. The use of silicone materials in newer bras not only ensures they stick, but also aren't a literal pain to remove and can be washed and used again and again.
If you've been reluctant to try adhesive bras in the past, there's no better time than now to give them a shot. These nine adhesive bras will actually stay on — and are worth your consideration.
1. A Plunge Bra With a Convertible Strap
The perfect strapless bra solution for low-cut and backless tops and gowns, this self-adhesive U-shaped bra is made from nylon and spandex and is reusable and allergy free. It boasts comfy gel cups that create a push-up effect without underwire. Reviewers say this is the real deal: an adhesive that stays in place all day and regains its stickiness after you wash it.
2. A Silicone Bra With A Lace-Up Front
This eco-conscious strapless self-adhesive bra is made from 100 percent SuperLite Medical Grade Silicone, which safely adheres to skin and (with proper care) can be reused up to 100 times. If you are looking for lift, the lace-up front can add up to two cup sizes to your bust.
3. A Barely Visible Seamless Front-Close Demi Bra
This seamless front-close demi push-up bra has adhesive cups with air holes for a more breathable and light fit (which is especially welcome during warmer months). It's backless, virtually invisible under most clothing, and designed with silicone and polyester for a comfortable fit. Reviewers say this sticks well, even when it's hot and sticky outside, and that the nipple protector is an added bonus.
4. Self-Adhesive Pasties That Come In A Variety Of Shades
Forget about a bra entirely and opt instead for these freeing Nippies, which are made from ultra-thin silicone and cover just enough of your breast to provide some support and coverage. They're available in three skin tone shades and are seamless around the edges. One Amazon reviewer even claimed she wore hers 3-5 times a week and that her Nippies still lasted two years before she had to replace them.
5. A Backless Bra For Daring Necklines
This deep U plunge self-adhesive bra has invisible wings on the side that add additional support and hold, as well as a silicone push-up design that creates cleavage. It's lightweight, seamless, and (according to happy reviewers) true to size and extremely comfortable.
6. A Durable Plus-Size Silicone Bra
A lightweight plus-size self-adhesive bra made with silicone, this durable and long-lasting option is perfect for everything from criss-cross tank tops to plunging, backless dresses. You can use and re-use this bra up to the 30 times and cleaning it after each wear is as easy as gliding a baby wipe over the silicone. Reviewers say this offers a great fit, is seamless under clothing, and feels comfortable and looks natural.
7. A Self-Adhesive Bra With Thickness Options
When you want options, a lightweight silicone adhesive push-up bra like this one stands out from the pack. You can choose between normal thickness and double thickness, depending on the level of lift you want. Many Amazon reviewers with larger breasts wrote that this bra, in normal thickness, is a perfect fit and that it offers day-long support. Those with smaller cup sizes say double thickness really helps deliver a result that fills out tops and gowns.
8. A Super Light Backless Bra For Petite Sizes
Petite frames will fit perfectly in this ultra light, backless and wire-free self-adhesive bra that's made with silicone and a breathable polyurethane blend. Foam-lined cups (with light padding) feel natural and help boost your cleavage and give great lift — and the front closure makes it super easy to put on and remove this bra.
9. A Feather-Light Bra That Goes Up To An E Cup
Wear this super sticky, backless self-adhesive bra for hours in extreme heat and reviewers say it won't slip or disappoint. It has lightweight fabric cups, can be adjusted for more or less cleavage, and comes in nine shades — black, tan, pink, red, blue, chocolate, yellow, light purple, and beige.
