Best Adhesive bras or sticky bras as they have come to be known have been touted by celebrities as the best thing to happen to women’s fashion since the corset went out of style. But do they work? Well, as women we know that the perfect bra is the one that stays on and offers unmatched support; all the other stuff including how it stays on, well, that’s irrelevant.
Yet, the very thought of a bra that you just stick on, no underwire and no straps that you have to keep adjusting is so tempting, I had to try a few. The following are the 10 best adhesive bras I think you should try and why.
Top Ten Best Adhesive Bras in 2020
Niidor Adhesive Bra
It is women with large breasts who typically have issues with sticky bras. If you are a C cup and above, it is difficult to find a regular bra that offers the support and comfort you need. But when you want to wear that cute little top or that strapless gown and going braless isn’t an option, you need a sticky bra that actually works. This is one of the biggest advantages that Niidor Adhesive bra has over most other brands; it works and stays on whether you are a tiny A-cup or an extra-large double D.
The thin silicone covers ensure that the bra will not be visible even under clingy clothes and the nipple cover keeps your nipple from standing out. The silicone material used to make the bra is also quite safe, meaning that even though the bra is quite sticky, it will not irritate the skin at all. The smooth surface also makes the bra easy to clean and durable.
Mitaloo Push Up Strapless
Another problem that many women and I will admit, I had when trying to find the right bra is the stickiness of the bra. That may sound kind of weird; you obviously expect a bra that’s advertised as “sticky” to actually be sticky. But sometimes the stickiness of it starts off perfect, but the bra doesn’t stay in place all day. And believe me; you thought constantly readjusting your bra straps was bad; you should try constantly readjusting your sticky bra.
Yet, there are some like the Mitaloo Push up Strapless that have found a way to fix this “stickiness” issue once and for all. This bra’s staying on the power of this bra is near perfect even for D breasts. It also doesn’t hurt that it is thin enough to remain under your clothes like you expect undergarments to.
NuBra Feather-Lite Super Padded
Women with small breasts have been buying padded bras since forever and as such the appeal of the sticky padded bra to the size AA woman cannot be overstated. The Nu-Bra Feather-LITE super padded bra is one that caters to this demographic of women better than most padded bras do. Yet, it maintains the thin lining that is associated with stick-on bras, to give you the freedom you seek when you choose a sticky bra.
While this particular bra is the nearly perfect padded bra for women with small boobs, the sticky aspect of it is one that may let you down. Other bras like it have been known to stay on for longer, but this one tends to lose its adhesive much faster, meaning that it may not be the ideal choice when you need a bra that will stay on all day.
Aisprts Strapless Bra
Almost every woman who tries the adhesive bra for the first time will have a story with the prominent line, “I tried to get it to stick, but I just couldn’t”. While this may be explained as just the first time use jitters that you’ll experience with just about anything you try to do, no woman wants to go through this every time she tries to wear a bra; it should be a no brainer. And that can only happen when the bra you choose is easy to put on.
The Aisprts Strapless Bra is designed to make the processing of wearing a sticky bra that much easier whether you have firm breasts or not. It will stick and stay on for any bra size and its thin silicone material will remain hidden even with the thinnest of clothing. It will also stay on for longer than most other similar bras.
Aomh Invisible Adhesive Bra
One of the main reasons why strapless and the later adhesive bras became so popular is because they allow any woman, A-Cup or D-Cup to comfortably pull off that thin strapless or backless dress. But to do this, a bra has to be able to stay on and not need constant adjusting. Therefore if it is a sticky bra, it needs to have a strong enough adhesive to hold it in place for as long as you’ll be in that dress. At this point, support isn’t as important as keeping the girls in place.
The Aomh Invisible Adhesive Bra meets this stay-in-place requirement perfectly. So, while it is easy to put on and will hold for as long as you need it to, it may not be the ideal choice when you’re looking for support. As such, I’ve found that it may not be good for C-cups and above who need support more than anything from a bra. But if you need it for just a few hours, it is great, particularly for backless dresses.
Superking Sticky Bra
Have you ever had someone tell you that you’re wearing the wrong sized bra? This reminds me of an episode of Sex and the City when Miranda’s mom died and she was at a local store buying the perfect black bra for the black dress she would wear to the funeral. The lady at the store took one look at Miranda and told her she’d been wearing the wrong sized bra all her life. And just like Miranda did, we’ve all wondered what it would be like to never worry about the “right-size” bra.
Well with the Superking Sticky bra, you don’t have to. But let me be clear, this is not a bra as much as it is a nipple cover, perfect for strapless and backless dresses. Yet, while it is easy to put on, stays on and can be reused, the one thing that stands out for me is that it is really a one-size-fits all solution. It is however not clear if D-cups are included in the equation, but anyone from AA to a C can benefit from this one.
Alupper Strapless Bra
I bet you were wondering when we would get to the sports bra. Well, since I know what it’s like to try and keep the girls under control on a run, this review would be incomplete without the perfect strapless sports bra. The main aim of any sports bra is to offer support while giving you the freedom to move as vigorously as you want. Big breasted women understand finding the perfect balance between freedom and movement more than anyone, which is why I was pleasantly surprised to find a bra that fits perfectly and looks smooth under fitted clothes, perfect for the gym.
But the Alupper is not just a sports bra. Since it is designed to disappear under your clothes, I daresay that it is the ideal bra for strapless dresses particularly if you are a C-cup and above. It also doesn’t hurt that it is one of those bras that sticks and stays on.
Kingoudoor Strapless Backless Bra
Over the shoulder dresses and strapless dresses can make any woman look and feel like a million bucks. But what those movie starts that seem to pull off the plunging neckline, the perfect backless look is that there is a lot going on behind that dress. To be precise, there is a high-quality strapless bra working very hard to hold the dress together.
Now we all can’t have access to the stylists charged with making sure the movie star’s look doesn’t fall apart. But bras like the Kingoudoor Strapless Backless Bra can make you look and feel like a movie star. This bra offers the perfect hold, but it might not give you the lift and cleavage to pull off a strapless dress if you are a little on the lower side of the size spectrum.
Wingslove Adhesive Bra
You’d have to be a smaller size to understand why pushup bras were even invented. There are times when a woman just wants to feel, well, more womanly and nothing does that like cleavage. The pushup bra is the one thing that can make a double AA feel like a B or C and the pushup adhesive bra takes it further, by giving the benefits of a pushup without the straps, perfect for strapless and backless dresses
The Wingslove Adhesive bra seems to be designed for women with smaller breasts. If you’re an A-Cup or a B-Cup, this is the perfect solution for you. But despite the advertising, I would stay away from it if you’re a C or D cup.
Bristol 6 Nippies Nipple Covers
Do you ever want to go braless? Going braless is perhaps the ultimate freedom. But if you are like me, you probably don’t like it when your nipples stick out. But this is why nipple covers were invented. They work best when they don’t constrict the breast and only do what they were meant to do; cover the nipple.
One of the things I love about the Bristol 6 Nippies other than the fact that it covers the nipple perfectly is the color. You can buy a color that matches your skin perfectly, but be ready to try a few times before getting the color just right.
Do adhesive bras really work?
The simple answer is yes. But I feel like I should warn you that you may have to buy a few before you find one that will stick and stay on.
How do you put on an adhesive bra?
It depends on the type of adhesive bra and sometimes even the brand. Most will come with detailed instructions but the one thing they all have in common is that you need to wash your skin before putting on the bra.
Can you wear adhesive bras in water?
In most cases, no. Not even if the advertisement says that you can. Water will often damage the adhesive causing it to lose its old on the screen.
Can you reuse stick on bras?
Yes. But there is a caveat. You have to rinse the bra with water as soon as you take it off. If you leave it out to dry overnight, the adhesive should be good as new and reusable. How long you can reuse the bra will depend on the brand.
How do you keep your stick on bra from sweating?
The best way to keep the bra from sweating is to avoid using moisturizers and creams on your skin before putting on the bra. Keeping the skin clean and dry can also help.
How long can you wear an adhesive bra?
The average recommended time to wear an adhesive bra is 6-8 hours. Any longer than 8 hours and you could be dealing with skin irritation and rashes.
Are self-adhesive bras safe?
This again depends on the brand. But most are made from silicone material that should be safe unless you’re allergic to silicone.
Are stick on bras comfortable?
The general rule of comfort when it comes to bras applies even for stick-on bras; always buy the right size and you’ll be comfortable.
I hope this guide has been as helpful you as possible. Buying a bra much less a stick-on bra can be a very difficult, yet private affair. It is my hope that you will be able to use the information in this guide to inform your choice of a stick-on bra.
