Are you ready to rock that cocktail dress you’ve been waiting to wear all winter? Or your off the shoulder wedding dress after months of waiting for the big day? Then the strapless bra is just what you need.
And there aren’t any slip-ups, pinching or ugly straps included in that equation. A strapless bra that fits you properly allows you to wear stylish clothes without your bra poking out in unwanted places.
And since many of us don’t fancy going braless, the strapless bra gives you the same comfort and support you’d get from a regular bra minus the discomfort and wardrobe limitations. In other words, you get the best of both worlds. Awesome right?
But what’s the difference between a strapless bra and a freedom bra? While a freedom bra (also called an invisible bra) is a type of strapless bra, it only covers your breast tissue area. Whereas other strapless bras have a band underneath the cups so you get more support (great for bigger busts).

Guide to Buying the Best Strapless Bra
Now that we’ve covered why you should get a strapless bra, let’s make sure you find one that is a perfect fit for you. Here’s what I look for when I’m shopping around for the best strapless bra:
Strapless bras are built to support you and keep your bust lifted. Without the straps, the band ends up doing all the work. So you want to focus most of your attention on the band.
To do this, hook the grip on the loosest setting when you try it on. The band should feel snug against your torso without digging into your breast tissue. why on the loosest setting first? Well as your bra stretches with wear you will need to reduce its size down with the other hooks!
When buying a strapless bras, you will likely need to go down at least one band size (but bear in mind that can mean going up a cup!). Wearing a size smaller bra than you would normally will compensate for losing the support you’d get from bra straps.
My advice is to start with your regular size and try a few until you find one that gives you the support you need. Just remember that it should be comfortable, not oppressive. And don’t remove the labels until you’ve found the one!
When buying a strapless bra, I always look for a model that has at least three hooks on the back.
This gives me some leeway depending on the time of the month. As I mentioned above, your strapless bra should be snug and comfortable in the loosest setting.
Like all bras, this new addition to your wardrobe is going to wear out and loosen over time. But with a few hooks on the back and a good fit to start with, you can tighten it accordingly.
Because most of your support now comes from the band, it’s even more important that you buy a bra that fits properly.
The right size cup and a tight band are essential to buying the right strapless bra. Many women need to size down with the band and size up with the cups.
But really, keep trying different styled strapless bras until the band is snug and the cups support your breasts nicely.
When shopping around for your bra, keep in mind what you’ll be wearing. A light fabric will reveal the black strapless bra you’re wearing underneath. That’s a no no as far as we’re concerned.
And while black is a safe go-to colour for most bra purchases, nude strapless bra might be a better choice as it blends with almost everything. Another staple for the lingerie draw would be a white strapless bra – perhaps look for a different model like a white non push up strapless bra.
For strapless bras, many women like to have silicone padding inside the cups or inside the band for extra grip. This is particularly true for full-busted women who might worry about spillage. If this is you, consider an underwire strapless bra.
Types of Strapless Bras
With strapless bras, there’s no shortage of styles to choose from. And depending on your size, body shape, and wardrobe requirements, there’s a model for every occasion!
For example, if you’re planning on wearing a v-shaped top, a plunge strapless bra will fit perfectly without being noticed.
On the other hand, a bandeau bra is great for extra comfort while wearing your sleeveless summer clothes.

According to users, it provides great support, gives you a nice lift, and stays in place for most of the day.
As this is a product worn mostly in the summer, some customers have said that sweating has made the pasties shift a little. To remedy this, try not to put any beauty products, cream, perfume, or talc in your chest area. As this will interfere with the pasties’ ability to stick to your skin.
And if you need to take the pasties of the invisible bra off to clean them, use a towel instead of tissue or toilet paper, as these might stick to the pastie.

FAQ about Strapless Bras
Which type of bra is best for a heavy bust?
For full-busted women, a longline strapless bra is a great choice. With the extra fabric around the band, this bra gives you a lot more support. As well as some extra boning to keep everything in place.
I also recommend purchasing a bra with lined cups and a wide elastic band. This will make you feel more secure throughout the day.
And as always, the best thing to do when purchasing a new bra is to get a professional fitting. If that isn’t an option, you can measure yourself at home.
Are strapless bras supportive?
Since the band is responsible for most of the support you get from a bra, going strapless doesn’t make much of a difference. In fact, when choosing a regular bra, you should wear it without the straps to check whether it’s a good fit or not.
However, it is true that strapless bras got a bad rep in the past. And that’s understandable. But nowadays, strapless bras are made so that the band is a little thicker.
As for the models without bands, an anti-slip silicone grip generally lines the inside of the cups, making the bra very secure and supportive.
Should you go down a size in a strapless bra?
When purchasing a strapless bra, keep in mind that sizing will be different. Because the band provides all the support, you’ll tend to opt for a tighter band while making sure it’s still comfortable.
The best way to find the right-sized strapless bra is to try a few before making the final purchase. And if you can, get fitted specifically for a strapless bra.
Why do Strapless bras fall down?
There are a few reasons why your strapless bra might be falling down. Your band is either too loose, in which case it won’t hold your boobs up and slip, too narrow to support your breasts, in which case you need a wider band, or worn out, which means a new bra is in order.
