I have always wondered about those.  I would be afraid of them slipping with sweat like the sticky cup things do.

I think they look pretty neat but I bet it depends on how large of a cup size? I can see it working well on a smaller cup size…

I think Victoria’s Secret has the strapless bras with the low back that wraps around you. Maybe that would be less likely to slip. They wrap around your lower back and in the front. You might be better off looking for a strapless low back with a corset back that is longer and goes to your waist because in my experience the corset type stay better than a regular strapless bra.

I don’t know if you are going to be able to find a very low back corset.  I wasn’t able to find one for my dress which sounds very similar to yours.

@sheshk – I actually ordered one and received it last week. I have only tried it on with a dress for a few minutes to make sure I liked it. It seems like it’s going to have decent holding power, and I’m a C, so it’s got some work to do! LOL. I’ve tried millions of strapless pushup bras and this one so far gives the best oomph! I will be wearing it to a wedding in 2 weeks. I will update you and let you know how I make out!

I am also worried about bras, and I am thinking about having cups sewn in. Then I don’t have to worry about anything slipping. Sidenote: I am a B cup so I don’t need much support or anything. Have you thought about cups sewn in?

You should be fine with the original picture you posted. You can always use some fashion tape if you are afraid the bra will slip.

What kind of material/cut is your dress?  If it’s a more structured top with some boning that may help keep the bra in place, but if it’s a more flowy beachy dress you may need to run around a bit and make sure it will support itself.
