What backless bra should I buy?
Backless bras come in many different styles and forms - just like we do. From backless multi-way bras to stick-on adhesive cups, finding the right bra for you can feel like a marathon. When it comes to backless bras and stick-on bras you want to make sure you have the right size (if there even are any options) and that it fits well underneath what dress or top you may be wearing.
How does a backless bra stay in place without a back band?
Backless bras typically have some form of adhesive property or alternative tie to stay in place - think low-back clips, stick-on bras and more. They come with adhesive wings or cups that adhere to the sides of the breasts and the skin, providing support and lift without the need for a back band. If you're worried about how they'll peel off, generally the adhesive is skin-friendly and designed to be easily removed without causing discomfort.
Can all breast sizes wear backless bras?
Backless bras are available in various sizes, so they can be suitable for different breast sizes. But, because backless bras have less support, it's true may work better for smaller to medium-sized breasts, while others might offer better support for larger breasts. It's essential to check the sizing and specifications of the backless bra before purchasing it to ensure a proper fit. If you're looking for a backless bra that supports a bigger bust, try out the Nood Starter Lift Kit - it's made for those with bigger boobs.
