I’m considering getting one of these stick on things I’ve heard about but I’m really not sure how ‘trustworthy’ they are and where the best place is to get them

I had cups sewn into my dress so no bra needed! Most bridal shops will do this for you xx

I'm doing braless.. the dress has elastic that does up like a bra inside at the back so should provide enough lift haha x

You may find depending on the style of dress and how it is fitted you won’t need one. I didn’t and I am quite large up top and had a backless dress. The dress fitted better without a bra.

Stick on bras make you sweat
I am small in the boob department and I had sewn in cups as couldn’t wear a bra
Gave me a good boost

I had a backless dress, I wore a normal bra, but had a special attachment that pulled the back straps down and tied it around my waist - was perfect. You can adjust them to go as low as you want.

I didn't wear a bra but seamstress stitched cups into the dress for me. Super comfy! But I guess might depend on your bra size and whether you're comfortable to go braless x

I have a friend who swears by the ones on boohoo! Only about £14 and she wore with her wedding dress and it looked great! Good luck! Xx

Depending on your dress style the chances are you won’t need one ... plus you can also ask them to sew one in for you x

My dress was quite supportive so I was going to go bra-less but my seamstress suggested I get a wing bra (the stick on ones). I ordered one from amazon, I wasn't sure how sticky they would be after the first use so didn't try it in advance. They are very sticky, but my boobs were to heavy for them so it didn't work for me, it did however give me a laugh on the wedding morning! I didn't bother with it in the end. If your dress is supportive you'll be able to go without, I never thought I'd be able to do that!

Hi, I got married Saturday, I wore a low cut "body" which also had quite a low back, still had to pin a bit of the back down a bit, but it worked for me. Bought it in Debenhams think it was £25. Has clear straps as well and was beige/nude colour. Didn't show under my dress and gave me a nice silhouette. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I literally got a cheap strapless bra in my size cut off the back and sewed the cups into my dress on the morning of my wedding, took two minutes!

After encouragement from the bridal shop owner, I tried my dress on without a bra at my first fitting (it has a lace back). I was so suprised by how supportive it is; I won't need a bra, despite being fairly well-endowed.

Because i am 40Dd, ive been through every option including a corset. In last 6month, since buying my dress. Which showed over back.. So i've now decided to go braless, but have had bones, put in front.. To act as scaffold.. lol

If I go without a bra or corset I know I'm going to have a wardrobe malfunction. The dress is strapless and beautiful but I don't 100% trust it keeping them in 😂

As you can see in the picture I had an open back I searched for ages and found this one. It was perfect but I guess it depends on your dress and how much support you need. Good luck x
