Received an invite for a special event and don’t know what to wear?
That’s a great opportunity to go shopping right there.
Shopping for a new, gorgeous backless dress that will knock the socks off of everyone who has the privilege of spying you on that night.
But with your hot new purchase, you’ll need to update your wardrobe with equally hot lingerie in the form of a backless bra.
I know these mysterious creations are not so easy to shop for. That’s why I want to give you a hand today and show you the best backless bra to complement your new outfit.
But first, a brief inside look at what a backless bra is and how it works are in order.
The Mysterious Strapless Backless Bra – How Does It Work?
Since time immemorial, women have used various garments cover, restrain, or modify the appearance of their breasts. And in recent years, the more the garment reveals the better.
And in all those years from eternity past till a couple of years ago, these garments all heavily depended on straps to keep them (and the breasts they contain) in place.
That was until strapless and backless bras came and revolutionized the lingerie industry that is.
So how exactly do these modern fashion wonders work?
Especially when you consider that the main purpose of a bra is to support your breasts from bouncing all over the place, one tends to wonder how they perform their function without the aid of straps.
A strapless backless bra consists of 2 bra cups that have a layer of adhesive on the inner surface. This adhesive is the one that comes into contact with the breast surface and holds the bra in place.
Because of this, strapless bras are applied one cup at a time.
In order to push your breasts up and give them the right shape and support, backless bras feature a clasp in the middle, oftentimes a drawstring, to hold the cups together and push the breasts up.
Due to their unique strapless design, the cups on a backless bra are positioned vertically instead of the traditional horizontal alignment. This helps give the breasts the desired shape. However, the way your breasts will look depends on the right position of the cups and tensioning of the clasps. It may take getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, you won’t just be donning these babies with backless dresses alone.
Why Wear a Backless Bra?
This brings us back to your new backless dress.
When it comes to making a fashion statement, you want to make a positive statement. A backless dress with bra straps showing is definitely a fashion faux pas. You’ll definitely be the talk of the town, but for the wrong reasons.
That is why when you pick out a backless dress to wear on your special occasion, pick a bra to match your special day and dress. Besides, if you want to wear an outfit that shows maximum cleavage, a strapless push-up bra will definitely do the trick.
Need another reason to wear a backless bra? One word - lines.
Although many women have resigned to the plagued of involuntary tattoos in the form of lines made by bra straps, having a bra that doesn’t come with that drawback is a big advantage. Besides, not having to deal with underwires is another welcome relief.
Recently, bras have been getting a lot of media coverage – bad press for their negative health effects. Effects such as cancer, back and shoulder pain due to the straps, and many other issues (I won’t even talk about sagging).
This is exactly where backless straps shine as they mitigate most of these effects due to their design that follows the breast without putting too much pressure and thus closing the lymph nodes.
With so many positives in support of backless strapless bras, getting yourself one is, therefore, a no-brainer.
But which is the best backless bra for you?
I guess it’s now time to look at some of the best backless bras on the market so that you can pick the best one for you.
The Best Backless Bra – Let’s Go shopping
Now that you have established your need for a backless bra, it’s time to go shopping for one or 2, or even 7 as you might fall in love with all 7 bras I’m about to show you.
Let’s get started, shall we?
No products found.
When it comes to bras, one company that has gotten them right is WingsLove. That is why when you are looking for the best backless bra, your first stop has to be the WingsLove strapless invisible push-up bra.
Made from 100% medical grade silicone and a hypoallergenic adhesive, this is one of the best backless bras available as it offers a very comfortable fit and doesn’t leave any trace of a bra once you remove it.
As with all adhesive bras, you should take precautions to prolong the stickiness of the adhesive lining. As you dress up for your special night out, avoid using moisturizers, perfumes, powders or other skin care products before putting on the bra.
Simply wash with warm water and a mild soap and allow your breast to dry before putting on the bra.
One of the best features you’ll definitely love the fact that it will give you the support of a normal bra and yet remain invisible.
This is definitely one of the best backless bras you can match to your backless dress or top.
The only caveat with this bra is that it is not really for those who are more blessed than others when it comes to breast size.
This bra definitely deserves a gorgeous 5-star rating.

Catering for bigger busts pushes this pushup bra to 5 stars.
Another great company you can trust to give your breasts that lift and support they need is NuBra. The NuBra Feather Lite backless bra is exactly as the name suggests – feather light.
That is because of its feather-light fabric cups that are made from 30% Polyester, 30% Polyurethane Foam, and 40% silicone adhesive.
But that’s not even the best part about this bra that might as well take the cup for the best backless bra.
The best part about this bra is that it manages to maintain its stickiness even in sweaty conditions, a claim very few adhesive bras can even dare make. But this backless bra does a superb job of it, giving you the confidence you need to have a good time without having to worry about a wardrobe malfunction.
As for sizes, the NuBra Feather Lite is available in cup sizes A through DD/E and is also adjustable for maximum cleavage enhancement.
A worthwhile investment if you ask me and, therefore, 4/5 stars.

The Fashion Forms U Plunge backless bra features an innovative design that will give you maximum cleavage without compromising the support and shape factor.
The design incorporates an underwire for excellent cup support and for those times you feel like putting on a strap-on bra, it also comes with attachable straps. And when you want to use it for its main purpose, going backless, the U Plunge comes with adhesive cups and wings that will keep it in place no matter how vigorously you move.
As with most adhesive bras, care must be taken to make sure your skin is free of oils and powders before wearing the bra, otherwise, the adhesive will lose its stickiness.
With proper care, by hand washing, using mild soaps, and air drying, this backless bra can be reused multiple times before the adhesive starts losing its integrity.
And for that, it deserves 4/5 stars.
Still on the Fashion Forms label, if you are well endowed, you’ll definitely appreciate the Fashion Forms Voluptuous backless strapless bra.
This is one of the rare backless bras that go all the way up to size H, hence it is aptly named.
Featuring a comfortably wireless design with smooth seamless contour cups, the Fashion Forms Voluptuous backless strapless bra has a very sturdy adhesive that will take you through the whole day without giving way.
So go ahead. Get yourself that backless dress you’ve always wanted, this backless bra will give you all the support and confidence you need.
This is definitely another bra from Fashion Forms that deserves 4/5 stars.
These may not really be bras as such, but they do definitely give you all the functionality of the best backless bra.
The Bristol Six Nippies Skin nipple covers are adhesive nipple covers that many users have resorted to using more than their regular bras as they are comfortable and offer the opportunity to show maximum cleavage while giving your breasts maximum support as well.
Although they are made from silicone, these nipple covers won’t reflect light like many other silicone products do, so no strange looks with these.
Coming with an adhesive crème, these nipple covers are easy to use and so comfortable you will easily forget you are wearing anything inside.
For comfort and convenience, these nipple covers earn themselves a 5-star rating.
This Go Bare Backless strapless underwire adhesive bra is definitely a one of a kind bra in more ways than one.
Featuring super-smooth, molded-foam cups that will easily and comfortably accommodate most bust sizes for even the most daring backless styles, this bra is definitely one of the best backless bras on the market.
One of its greatest advantages is that you can wear it up to 25 times, yes, 25. But that, of course, is as long as you take proper care of it. That is certainly impressive as many other stick-on bras can only be used 6 times before the adhesive starts becoming questionable.
The other notable feature this Nordstrom backless bra brings to the table is that it features an underwire to give your breasts that extra support that will perk them up and give you that shape that will definitely get heads turning (and some mouths drooling).
Featuring 82% nylon and 18% for the cups and polyolefin gel adhesive wings, this is one bra that will offer you premium support without letting you (and your breasts) down.
25 times before the adhesive loses its “touch”? Definitely 5 stars then.
