There are a slew of brands specialising solely in adhesive underwear solutions, alongside offerings from lingerie heroes such as Marks and Spencer. One of the standout names we keep getting recommendations for the former is Fashion Forms. At Net-a-Porter, which stocks an impressive 66 different lingerie names, Fashion Forms is its best-selling stick-on brand. One of the most popular pieces in the range is the Go Bare Self-Adhesive Backless Strapless Bra (£25), which we’re told will ensure the perfect solution to any underwear issues. Stocked by John Lewis & Partners and and Selfridges, too, it’s got all the endorsement we need to give it a go.

Shop the Best Stick-On Bras, as Reviewed By You

“I had read other reviews to size up on this style but my usual was perfect. Once you find your fit, you won’t regret it—I’ll never buy another backless bra other than this one again. I tell all my friends about it and they also can’t believe how good it is.”—Customer Review

“I thought it was going to be impossible to find a stick-on bra with a plunge front that actually made me feel supported, but this one was perfect and gave a natural-looking lift."—Customer Review

“I have a bigger bust size than most and had previously sworn off ever being able to wear a backless dress. But thanks to this piece by Fashion Forms, I can do so with confidence. It’s a game-changer.”—Customer Review

“I never write reviews, but this bodysuit deserves one! I finally had my wedding after a Covid postponement and it was hot. My dress was low cut and had sheer sides... this was the only undergarment I could find that wouldn’t show. I was sure this bodysuit would lose its stickiness in the heat and sweat. But it lasted all day and night, I was dancing and moving and it didn’t go anywhere! I’m a DD, the cups were a little small but created great cleavage.”—Customer Review

“I ordered this alongside a dress as a back up to going braless and I was pleasantly surprised. It gave a really nice finish underneath the dress… I’m sold!”—Customer Review

“I was very dubious at how this would stay up. Its first outing was an all-day wedding in 36 degrees heat in Italy... perfect staying power and provided a little support and shape that I was after. Second outing was another wedding this time in 34 degrees as a bridesmaid where I was moving around a lot and for a long time. Same staying power as the first wear! Honestly a fantastic product, so glad I read other peoples reviews so I felt obliged to add mine, too.”—Customer Review

“I love this bra! Great alternative to a strapless bra. It is high quality, reusable and comfortable. The lace makes it feel sexy too.”—Customer Review

“I have dark skin and I purchased this to wear under a white halter dress. I was concerned that the colour wouldn’t blend in well. It worked out perfect.”—Customer Review

“I finally have a solution to all my backless dresses. There are so many dresses out there that are difficult to wear if you don’t have the right bra and I love this one. It sticks without any pain when you remove it and sits in place all day. The only down side is that if you are in ridiculously hot weather it does peel off a little bit. But if you are going to sit in hot weather, why wear clothes at all!”—Customer Review

“Love these! I used the less expensive version of these but they felt less secure. This bra stays put and lasts a long time if you rinse each cup with warm water after each use. I live in the US and never have issues with sweat causing these to slip. Worth the price!”—Customer Review

“I thought this was affordable enough to give this a go for a nice backless top I wanted to wear for a night out. It has a great fit for my bust and seems to be made well, with comfortable underwire.”—Customer Review
