    If you plan on dancing a lot you might not have as much luck with a stick on bra, the sweat can make it not stick as well

    Yeah, no to the stick on bra. I wore one to a wedding last year and it was a disaster. I would recommend a low back bra  depending on how low the lace of your dress is (you’d be surprised at how low some of the bras go) or some pasties (better than fashion tape, I think). They don’t hurt when you pull them off. Otherwise, ten days seems like enough time to have it taken in a bit more in the chest to prevent any wardrobe malfunctions. I’d probably go with that route.

    DGN85 :  I’ve worn this sticky silicone bra thing before that works really well! I agree that regular stick on bras are terrible, but the silicone style is awesome! I bought the “FreeBra” from Amazon. It also gave me more lift than a normal backless, strapless bra. I think it was about $10 or $15 and it’s resuable.

    Wear some pasties if you’re really nervous, otherwise don’t bother. Nippies makes some nice nude silicone ones.

    I’d just do tape, unless you really want to give your boobies a boost.

    There are lots of stick on bras that work really well though.  I wear one fairly often and have never ripped off a nipple haha. But with 9 days to go, it might be a challenge to find the right one that is stickey enough and works with your dress.

    I just had this problem and posted another thread! I took the advice of others, and got athletic tape. I bought it at CVS. I would get the “sweat proof water proof” kind. I put it on at about 3 PM, and it was still on by 1 AM, after a muggy night of dancing. I did put gauze over my nipples. Taking it off was a little uncomfortable wherever there was a little hair, but otherwise it was fine. I just did it in the shower, and used a little olive oil. I honestly felt super held it, and I had only taped one half of each breast, because the dress had no back and a very low neck.

    I have a sticky bra that I love, I got it at Kohl’s… I think it’s Maidenform… but I would never trust it for super long periods of time or if I would be getting sweaty. Also, it is definitely not sticky enough to pull a nipple off haha

    Sticky tape and a stick on bra will start sliding when you sweat. I like musket87 idea.

    DGN85 :  i have tried to very expensive VS version of that, and it does NOT work. There is no support from the tiny sticky bandaids on the side and it will fall off in no time.   try the sticky bra I posted earlier,  Best $15 you will ever spend.
