    For those you have worn or plan on wearing a backless dress what did you wear for support? Has anyone used those push up adhesives from Victoria's Secret? I am wondering if they even work or not. I am wearing a backless dress and getting nervous about how to make sure everything stays in place. Haha. But seriously any advice will help... what should I look for?

      Hi, Im wearing a backless dress however my dress also has thin straps as well so its able to be pretty supportive already in itself really. However, if you dont have any type of straps whatsoever ,then eys the push up bra/adhesiveswork very well from VS Ive bought some for strapless dresses before. The bra adhesives from Saks Fifth Ave( lingerie dept) are also great. I also recommend asking your seamstress/bridal salon or the person doing your alterations what they suggest as well for your specfic dress...

        Be careful when wearing adhesive bras.... i wore one to a formal event once, and the sticky didnt work last minute, so i had to use duck tape to hold it on.... i kno i kno very classy , but if thats what you are thinking of using, try it out first!

          I bought a bra from walmart called "shantini lite". It was only $17. Much cheaper than the victoria secret one. It stays on great. I plan on testing it on a hot day too. A friend of mine said she wore one on a really humid day to a BBQ & it stayed on fine. It won't lift, but it will create cleavage by holding them together.

              You can always have your seamstress sew on bra cups onto the dress...I have done that to all my bridesmaid dresses that I have worn in the past and I love it no worries at all.

              I have a backless dress and this is all that I'm wearing, just in case - although the material for my dress is quite thick and the top has straps too that provide support...Hollywood "Cover Ups" Reusable Nipple Concealers

                depending on how low the backless part goes, they also make bras that instead of clasping in the back, they criss cross around your stomach and clasp around your waist...they are surprisingly supportive

                  I would see if you can add cups to your dress.

                  I found that the stick on cups weren't very supportive for my girls, but if you are smaller busted they might work. (I'm a full D)

                  You can also look at getting the double stick tape.

                    Yeah I am a full D too and now thinking a backless dress wasn't the greatest idea. Oops. I have the cups built in but still scared of them falling out due to lack of support!
