Backless bras are quite a controversial subject. For starters, do they really do anything? And wouldn't it just be easier to go braless? It's a yes to both for us, which proves exactly why this is such a tricky lingerie item to pin down and feel content with. So if you're in need of a bit of support and don't want to feel exposed (not to mention if you have a fuller bust), there are definitely outfits that require such an item. Whether that's a plunging and revealing top, dress or jumpsuit, a backless bra can come in handy and really make your whole look.
But like strapless bras, they're a much-maligned item in the world of fashion. We're quick to condemn the lingerie without even ever trying to find ones that work. To remedy this, we hunted down the backless bras that have the best reviews on the internet. Not only did we find a bra that costs less than a tenner, but we also uncovered useful tips and tricks to sourcing this difficult lingerie. Keep scrolling for more.
On Amazon, 98% of reviewers gave this bra five stars (enough said considering its price is super reasonable too). The most recent reviewer revealed that this is "an excellent product." She wore it as a bridesmaid, and it gave her "good support and stayed on all day." However, as she's a B cup, she did warn it might not be great for fuller busts. Something to consider when choosing your backless bra.
We've made no secret of the fact that we love Marks and Spencer lingerie, so where better to find a decent strapless bra than the high-street store? For this bra, it can be transformed into so many different styles it can be "worn with practically any outfit," according to the high-street brand. To make it backless, you can either wear the clear (practically invisible) strap that will also offer you more support or use the waist strap to make it work for lower-back dresses.
If you want support for a backless top, dress or jumpsuit but still want a bit of lift, this is ideal for padding out your bust. One review noted that it was great for an open-back sheer party dress and "fit perfectly and comfortable to wear."
"After trying several bras similar to this, I was losing hope in finding one that will actually stay on all night," said a reviewer, who also recommended this backless bra for bigger bust sizes. They mentioned that although they're a 32D and wanted to wear it with a completely backless dress, it "worked perfectly."
Another one for those with a bigger cup size is this highly recommended bra that is available on Amazon. "I'm a 34D, which isn't that big, but I always struggle with strapless bras," said the reviewer, but luckily this worked for them. They did, however, follow the guidelines and get a cup smaller to ensure the fit.
