A backless bra is a type of lingerie that offers support to the breasts while providing a seamless, invisible look under clothing. These bras are perfect for those of us who like to wear low-cut, revealing or backless outfits but still want to maintain a natural and lifted look. This article will explore the subject in greater detail and will hopefully allow you to make an informed choice when purchasing a backless or stick on bra.
What makes a backless bra different from other types of bras?
Firstly let's look at how traditional bras work. Most traditional bras have cups that cover and support the breasts, straps that go over the shoulders, and a band that goes around the ribcage. The cups, straps, and band work together to lift, shape, and hold the breasts in place.
A backless bra, on the other hand, doesn't have straps or a band that goes around the ribcage. Instead, it relies on adhesive cups or a special design to keep our breasts in place.
One common type of backless bra is the adhesive bra. As the name suggests, these bras have cups that are attached to the skin using a special skin-friendly adhesive. The cups can be made of silicone, foam, or other materials and are shaped to fit the breasts. These types of bras are commonly referred to as a stick-on bra. You can view our entire range of stick on bras here.
To wear an adhesive bra, you simply peel off the backing from the cups and press them onto your skin. The super-strong adhesive will hold the cups in place and provide support to your breasts. Adhesive bras are particularly ideal for women with small to medium-sized breasts, as they most high-street bras will not provide support to bigger breasts.

Another type of backless bra is a multiway bra. These bras have straps that can be removed or rearranged to create a backless or low-cut look. Multiway bras are perfect for us women who want versatility and the option to switch up our lingerie depending on the outfit we're wearing.
One variation of the multiway bra is the stick-on bra with invisible straps. These bras have cups that are attached to the skin using a special adhesive exactly like adhesive bras. However these stick-on bras also have removable straps that can be rearranged to create a backless or low-cut look. You can view an example by clicking here.
So, why would someone want to wear a backless bra?
There are several reasons why you might like to choose to wear a backless bra.
With a traditional bra, it can be challenging to find one that fits well and doesn't show through clothing. A backless bra solves this problem by providing support and coverage without visible straps or bands. A backless bra is a perfect solution to wear with your favourite low-cut top.
Secondly, backless bras are ideal for women who want to wear backless dresses such as those worn at a prom or wedding. Traditional bras often show through these types of clothing, ruining the seamless look we all so desire. A backless bra allows you to wear these types of outfits without worrying about visible bra straps or lines.
Finally, backless bras are a great option for us that simply want a comfortable and discreet lingerie choice. Adhesive and stick-on bras are lightweight and barely noticeable, making them ideal for women who don't want to feel constricted by traditional bras.
So, how do you choose the correct backless bra for you?
When it comes to selecting a backless bra, there are a few factors to consider.
First, consider your breast size and shape. Your classic adhesive and stick-on bras may not provide enough support for larger breasts, so you may want to consider a multiway bra if you have a larger cup size, or choose a multiway stick-on bra which are incredibly popular with girls with larger breasts.

Second, think about the type of clothing you'll be wearing. If you'll be wearing a backless or low-cut dress or top, you'll want to choose a backless bra that provides full coverage and wraps around the ribcage. In this case, the cups, straps, and band work together to lift, shape, and hold your breasts in place.

Finally, think about the quality of the bra. Cheap adhesive and stick-on bras can be prone to peeling or losing their stickiness over time. It's essential to choose a British-made high-quality bra that will last and provide the support and coverage you need. By purchasing from Bralux you are purchasing from an established brand.
It's also a good idea to try on a few different styles and sizes to see which one works best for you. Some women may find that adhesive bras work well for them, while others may prefer multiway stick on bras. It's all about finding the right fit and style that works for you and your body.
In conclusion a backless bra is a versatile and stylish lingerie option for women who want to wear revealing or backless outfits without sacrificing support and coverage. Whether you prefer adhesive, stick-on, or multiway bras, there is a backless bra out there that will work for you. Just be sure to consider your breast size and shape, the type of clothing you'll be wearing, the fit of the bra, and the quality of the bra when making your selection.
