How to wear a backless dress - Bra Solution

Monday, 4 February 2013

So this is a bit of an unusual post, but I discovered something so amazing that I just had to share. I wear a 28G bra and if you are similar (small back, large cup size) then you'll know that this is an issue in itself. It's almost impossible to find good quality, pretty underwear without spending over £50.00 per bra. And I just can't stand soft cup, see-through granny bras.

Since finding an every day bra was a task in itself, wearing a backless dress has never been an option for me.  I wouldn't feel comfortable going bra-less and if your cup size is C or above, cheap stick-on bras from Primark just aren't an option. The 'covering of the boob' take may be taken care of - but it wouldn't give a nice shape under the dress or the support I wanted.

So for my Christmas night out, I found the perfect dress that I absolutely fell in love with and I soooo wanted to wear it.

It was this Jones and Jones Backless 'Audrey' Dress



I was determined to find a solution. 

I started looking on YouTube and (although I found some weird non bra-related boob videos) I discovered an advert for a product called Bare Lifts.  They were completely different to anything I had ever heard of, but only cost £2.20 so I had nothing to lose. (Apart from £2.20)

Bare Lifts are invisible adhesives that you stick on to your boob and pull up to give a nice shape.The sticker is split into the top and bottom half. You firstly peel off the bottom half and apply this area above the nipple. Make sure its stuck on tight then peel off the top half. Then, you simply pull it upwards (which lifts your boob right up) and stick it up as high as you want it .... 

and voila! - Victoria Beckham style grafity-defying boobs.

I wanted to make sure they were extra sticky so bought two pairs to have a trial day. I can't explain how happy I was when I realized they worked. 

With the top half of the boob sorted and the perfect support, I went to 'Boux Avenue' and bought a stick-on bra which I stuck on for a bit of extra back-up. I don't know if it was just a psychological thing that I had to feel a bra underneath as well. So after all that, here's the dress I wore on my night out.

The night out lasted around 6 hours and the Bare Lifts still had to be quickly ripped off when I got home. (The alcohol definitely helped me do this) 

If you're like me, you have to try these. They are the perfect add-on to a stick-on bra or even just to use on their own. 

I'm so excited to finally start wearing backless dresses!

Let me know if you try these and what you think! I hope this helps :) xxx

    1. I got it in a size 6 lovely - you can't really use the cup size guide for reference if your back size is smaller because it's totally out, but the 6 was perfect for me x

    1. Hey mine is a size '6' and fits me fine, if you have a smaller back size then the cup sizes won't match up, so if you're a similar size to me then the size 6 should fit xxx
