Reasons your strapless bra isn’t staying up
Your strapless bra band is too narrow
The majority of support comes from the bra band, especially for bras that are free from straps, which is why the band on your strapless bra should feel a little tighter than the band on your regular bra. The most supportive strapless styles have a wider band because this provides more area to distribute the support.
Women with larger busts have complained of backaches when wearing strapless bras, this is often due to the back band being too narrow and loose. Therefore, it’s really important to seek strapless bras with wide bands that will do all the heavy lifting for you. This way, you’re less likely to end up with a backache or a sliding bra halfway through your bottomless brunch. Learn more about what makes d-g cup bras different.
Your strapless bra is too loose
Your strapless bra should be firm-fitting. Not so firm that you feel suffocated but snug and secure enough that you feel confident to go about your day without the fear of slippage! You may need to size up or down from your usual bra size to get the best strapless bra fit.
Fit Tip: Make sure if you go down a back size when you go up a cup size, and if you go up a back size you go down a cup size, this is called your ‘Sister Size’.
For the best fit results, we highly recommend you get fitted in-store. You can use our size guide for help when online shopping for your strapless bra.
Your strapless bra is missing a no-slip grip
One of the most important features for helping a strapless bra stay up is a small line of grip tape that’s built into the bra to help keep it in place. It’s unlikely that you will find a strapless bra from us that is missing a no-slip grip, but if you do find that you are missing this grip you can buy double-sided dressing tape to help keep your bra in place.
Choosing the Best Strapless Bra For You
The best strapless bra is one that fits properly, flatters your figure, stays in place (out of sight!), and is so comfortable you forget that you are wearing it. It’s there when you need it and makes occasion and event dressing a breeze.
To find the best strapless bra solution for you, head into your local Bendon store for a fitting, preferably with the dress, top, or garment that you need to find the perfect bra for.
