Backless Tops and Dresses Look 100 Times Better With This Bra Involved

A stick-on bra probably isn’t high up on your new-season shopping list, but as the social season gets into swing, investing in the perfect wardrobe foundations is a must, particularly if your head has been turned by a backless dress.

There’s a slew of brands specialising solely in adhesive underwear solutions, alongside offerings from lingerie heroes such as M&S. One of the standout names we keep getting recommendations for the former is Fashion Forms. At Selfridges, which stocks an impressive 44 different lingerie names, Fashion Forms is its best-selling stick-on brand. One of the most popular pieces in the range is the Nu Bra Push-Up (£46), which we’re told will ensure the perfect solution to any underwear issues. Stocked by John Lewis and Net-a-Porter, it’s got all the endorsement we need to give it a go.

It’s also worth shouting about InvisiBra, which offers a mind-boggling array of not just styles but attractive finishes. If a flesh-coloured silicone cup isn’t your thing (and yes, it caters to differing skin colours and tones), you can choose lace finishes in blue, magenta, black and even matching underwear sets.

So it’s time to stop assuming that because you’ve never previously dared a backless dress, you can’t do so now. Get clicking, get ordering and get trying, because we’re sure there’s one in the edit below for you.

Cheap and cheerful, these cups can be trimmed to size and stick to your clothing rather than your skin.

Be sure to check out Inivisbra if you’d like your stick-on lingerie to work in harmony with the rest of your drawer.

M&S’s adhesive offering comes in sizes 1 to 6, with a clear explainer of what cup size is recommended.

This discreet style doesn’t have sticky wings around the under-arm, so it feels like you aren’t wearing anything.

Of a similar shape to the M&S style, this features underwire for added support.
