Different Types of Stick On Backless Bras
By : Eva Chung -
I’ve been using stick on bras for about 8 years so far. I’ve worn them with dresses and shirts of all sorts. When I started, the main purpose for them was because I could not wear strapless bras. My bust measurement was too small, and all bras would fall off. So, in place os strapless bras, I was introduced to adhesive ones. I’ve been introduced to many different styles and tops throughout the years, so I have quite the experience with these.

- You can manipulate your cleavage based on where you place the cups
This only applies to bras with a clasp. The placements helps to bring your breasts together. If you want more cleavage, place the cups farther apart. Less cleavage, place them closer to each other.
- Great for those who don’t fit strapless bras
If you’re like I was and strapless bras would slip off, try stick ons. A lot of people also find strapless bras uncomfortable. For me, any bra is uncomfortable except for sports bras. With stick ons, it feels like you’re wearing nothing and you’re at home. It’s amazing.
- Easy to maintain
With regular bras, you have to hand wash them or buy the special bag so they don’t get warped or stretched out. With adhesive bras, all you have to do is apply some water and gently massage the residue out, and lay flat to dry.
Different Types of Stick On Bras
1. The Silicone Classic Bra
Recommended for: Those with smaller breasts that aren’t too concerned with lift
BONUS: Most durable and long lasting bra of the bunch because it isn’t fabric and has a different adhesive
2. Wired Cups
CON: Not recommended for everyone because due to different breast shapes, gapping may occur. Check with a strapless bra to see if this bra is suitable for you.
3. Lifting Bra
4. Push Up Lift
BONUS: Thicker padding on lower area of cup for extra ‘boost’
5. Plunge Bra
Recommended for: Anyone looking for the most support possible, similar to traditional bras, but still able to hide it from pesky deep-V clothing.
Recommended for: Just having your nipples covered. I prefer the flowery-shaped, one-use pasties because I find they stick a lot better (and hurt a lot to take off) than the silicone ones.
