I asked about this topic a few weeks ago—sorry about the repeat. My dress is clingy (esp in front), made of charmeuse, and has a low cowl back. That means that most every lump and bump shows, including the lumps and bumps of bras. So I’m thinking about using an adhesive bra, and I bought a NuBra to try, but I’m uncomfortable because I need some support (C cup) and it doesn’t feel like I’m getting any. I also wonder if the adhesive will hold up under perspiration etc. I had a bad prom experience a few years ago, but an associate at VS said that the adhesives have improved. Any recent experiences? I’m nervous about using an adhesive bra, but I don’t like the strap-showing look either, and I have to do something (no freeboobing!). Thanks for any help.

Um well I used the VS one and it was still stuck at the end of the night (my dress was tight though so it helped I am sure. They did not move or slide and when i took my dress off they stayed put. Good luck You may want to get duct tape to have on hand just in case it works just hurts

Go out dancing with the NuBra and see how it goes. I have not used one but feel since you are a C cup you may need a little more oomph than that. Hope it works!

Appreciate the responses. I also added a poll to the question (I’m learning new things about WB all the time!)

I heard that after an hour of sweating, those things will begin to peel off.
also, I have one of these bras (I have not worn it out of the house yet) and my boobs still sag in it. it does nothing for lift.

Is it possible to get cups sewn into the dress? You can do it with many bridal dresses, but without seeing the inside of yours I’m not so sure.

Don’t do it. Adhesive bras provide coverage, not support. If your dress isn’t structured you’ll be worried about it slipping off. That isn’t the sort of keepsake memory you want to provide your guests.
I would use a strapless low back bra. Chances are you’ll be able to find one that stays hidden with that dress.

@mrsch2b: I agree…maybe the bridal salon can help you with this as well..
google search low back, seamless bras- good luck!

What about a low back strapped bra, and tape thevstraps in placevso nomshowing. Or a low back strapless?

I love my NuBra, but I’m only an A cup.
It definitely doesn’t come off because of sweat – in fact most of the time when I take it off at the end of the night, I’m super grossed out by how much sweat is trapped inside of it, hahaha, because I don’t feel it or anything.
Not a lot of support though; it’s more like a happier, perkier version of I’m-not-wearing-a-bra look, which is totally perfect for me most of the time 🙂

@AB Bride: I looked into having cups sewn in and the dress apparently doesn’t have the necessary structure. My seamstress recommended wearing a bra.

I have the adhesive plunge bra from victoria’s secret and I’m a C-cup. I wore it to my friend’s wedding in June outside in a flowy dress that a regular strapless bra couldn’t be worn with.
When I first put it on I didn’t feel like it gave me much support (and DEFINITELY DO NOT PUT LOTION ON AT ALL in that area) It stuck pretty well and I felt safe enough to wear it (although really not comfortable at all). I actually put the strap that comes with it around my neck for some extra support.
It started out okay. But the minute I started sweating the adhesive sides of the bra started to slip and slide off my body. To make matters worse the strap kept coming unhooked from the tabs in the front of the bra.
I ended up paying more attention to my stupid bra than I did to having a good time and celebrating. 🙁

I tried one for prom…it’s a no-no!
It stuck on fine, but I had ZERO support, it was better to go bra less or wear nipple petals!

They’re reuseable, right? Why don’t you test drive it?
