I need help finding a strapless bra - please!

Sounds simple, I know, but it needs to have either transparent or very low sides/back strap and give good overall shape. I'm a 32D.

Thank you

I've heard good things about one of the Wonderbras, think it might be the Ultimate one. Not 100% on the name though so hopefully someone else can advise a bit better than me!

The wonderbra ultimate strapless does sit quite low on the torso so you may have some luck with that - it gives good uplift and shape too (doesn't press your boobs down like many strapless bras do). The backs can come up quite small though so maybe try a 32D and a 34C. Debenhams, JL and HoF have them in store if you have one locally.

Failing that you might have to go down the stick on route - I found one that worked for my 30G (as were) boobs in Debenhams - it wasn't attractive but it did provide the support I needed.

The wonder bra is awesome, got it to wear under my wedding dress. I'm a 36 gg and it didn't move all day.

Thank you, I have an awesome dress that I want to take on holiday, but the armpits are very low into a racer back, iyswim, normal strapless bras show a cm or so of greying fabric. Ruins the look somewhat...

The Wonderbra Ultimate is the only strapless bra that I have ever tried which actually holds them up - and feels secure.

It is quite bulky though so may not suit your dress.

Ah I see.

how about a racer back style bra.

I saw some in Matalan the other day - really nice.

That might work. I can't do the stick on ones, maybe 15 years ago when everything was still nice and perky. Now it'd look like bassett ears in socks. wink

The sides are nice ans low too, aren;t they?

Yonihadtoask Fri 28-Jun-13 14:08:30

And it comes in some pretty colours!!

Lissielou mine are none too pert either but that stick on thing really worked. I was gobsmacked!
