Ask the Addict: Backless, Strapless Adhesive Bras for Full Busts?

Fashion Forms’ new lace strapless/backless. Unfortunately only available up to a D cup.

Today’s Ask the Addict question comes from a TLA Tumblr follower who writes:

“I have a backless dress that I want to wear for an event, but I can’t seem to find the right bra for it. I’ve been Googling strapless, backless, and adhesive bras, but I haven’t seen one that I think would lift and support me (I’m a 34D). I value your opinion on lingerie and would love any advice you could provide! Thank you!”

I can understand your dilemma! Most adhesive bras only come in cup sizes A thru C. If you’re a D or DD cup, I recommend trying Fashion Forms. They make backless, strapless, adhesive bras up to a DD cup but, unfortunately, not beyond. It also appears some of their adhesive bras are better than others, so I definitely suggest reading the customer reviews.

    I had the same problem a bit ago, except I’m a 32D. I did a little bit of research and settled on a ‘Magic Silicone bra.’ It goes up to a D cup. You don’t get WHIZ BANG VAVAVOOM cleavage but it def served it’s purpose for me. You can check it out here:

    What about bigger busts? Do we have any options?? I’m a 34G!
    So frustrating..

    • Treacle

      I didn’t see any backless, strapless adhesive options busts above a DD. And even the DD options were really limited. This may not be a style that works well for women with more than a certain amount of breast tissue.

    I suggest getting a bra with knockout back straps and showing those babies off! I am dreaming of the day I can buy the Bordelle Lady Citron bodice bra. Hello dominatrix!

    My wife can’t add to this, but considering the opinions of 1> a past-gf, and 2> a rather well-endowed friend, the answer involving any of these things for larger busts is ‘Hell, No!’
    Actually, I’m paraphrasing and cleaning that up a bit..

    I’ve seen an adhesive bra (two separate silicone cups really) that goes up to UK H cup, sold online. I’m sorry I can’t recall where or what the brand was. I’m not convinced they’re as good as a strapless bra. For DD/E/F they might do the job, possibly combined with some skin tape etc. For H cup, it will probably look like you’re going braless, but with a supportive dress it could work.

    I wish I could find something – I’m an F cup – but I see why it might just be asking too much of the bra if you have a fuller bust. I’m toying with the kind of metal/jewelled straps that you can add to strapless bras as an alternative, but I think they look a bit flimsy, has anyone tried these?

    I’m a 32DDD and I wear the Chantalle strapless bra! It fits perfectly for having bigger breasts.

    I’ve seen Faveo Freedom Bra, they cost around 33 pounds, not cheap, however they do go up to a H cup.

  • Mamie

    Hi there. The large breasted ladies should give the D-up Cups a try for a strapless backless bra. They are available at and come in sizes D to GG. Hope this helps.

  • Katie

    THANK YOU whoever pointed me in the direction of the faveo bra!!!! I can now get married in my ill-advised purchase of a backless Claire Pettibone wedding dress!

    I’m a 32GG

    For anyone who might stumble across this post via Google search like I did, I found these:


    I wear a 32E/32F depending, and these go up to a 30L and account for sister sizing. Apparently there’s another identical one called the Faveo D+ perkups, too.

    • Cora

      Hey! The adhesive bras at the link you provided are actually the Faveo bras. They’re just being marketed under a different name.

    I’m a 34G and also have a dress to wear thats all lace at the back, Bra showing looks silly so i bought D+ PERK-UPS, Worst £25 i ever spent, They do not work, Soon as i moved my arms they pinged off, Not comfy and certainly not sticky enough to stay in place or hold big boobs up! The website is called Underwear solutions and i cant comment on the product to warn others not to buy them, Even the model on their site had little pert boobs!
