Hi everyone smile
I'm looking for a backless strapless bra to wear with my wedding dress but some of the "stick on" ones on the high street don't look great, does anyone have any recommendations please? I also saw online, has anyone tried them? Thank you!!

Have you tried M&S they have a bra fitting service as well so they maybe to help get this fit right and their bras are fantastic!

I used some fairly basic stick on ones for a party once and because I am quite small they were fine. However I could nearly get away with nothing so not sure how much support they would actually give.

The M and S bra fitting service is terrible and completely incorrect sheddooropen

Thanks everyone! I tried the "100 ways to wear" one from M&S but the low back converter bit didn't come down low enough. May have to try a stick on one just a bit worried about it falling off part way through the day shockgrin

No it's not the bra fitting service is really good, it must just be your local store. I have visited a few and on each occasion the bra fitting service gave me and my family perfect fitting bras we have used them for years and in our family, my grandmother mother and myself have all used them and never had an issue with them

I agree that M&S fitting is shocking. Go to Bravissimo (you don’t have to have a large bust) or there’s a great company called The Pantry (Islington or online) who are amazing at finding the best lingerie solution.

Could you have cups sewn into your dress for support?

No, they are notorious for getting it wrong. I bet they used the old (and incorrect) system of adding 4/5 inches.

Bra Guru's Better Bra Campaign shows you how to measure properly. I doubt that your M and S measured this way.

I have just done the M and S bra sizing online and they are so so so wrong. I have a 29 inch underbust measurement, and 34 inch overbust, and they put me in a 32A FGS!

Thanks everyone, sewing cups into the dress could be a good plan, I'm only a B but just don't want to have nothing! Will check out The Pantry too

Lonicera - I've just looked online and it's based on bras you already wear and the problems with them. There's no adding 4 or 5 inches.
All bras fit differently like shoes surely?

I'd put cups in the dress too. Made a real difference to the oomph factor.

Basing a measuring "service" on what you are already wearing makes an utter mockery of proper bra fitting. That online measuring tool is so unbelievably shit.

I used a stick on amazon one it was fine.
