This reviewer couldn’t praise Wonderbra enough: “Fits great and the back was low enough to wear with my low back dresses and tops. The deep V plunge it also great; no bra was showing! True to size.”

A-E cup available

Cons:

• Some reviewers found this bra not ideal in hot weather.

One reviewer praised this bra for use with a low back dress: “I was recommended this in branch so I hadn't read the online reviews before I purchased, which would have put me off. Unlike the previous reviewers, I found it stuck really well - I made sure I wasn't wearing any moisturiser on my back as per instructions and had no problems. It held me in place under a low back dress which was what I bought it for! So overall really pleased.”

The sticky bra is designed with a deep "V" shape. It not only helps to push your chest up with only need a little pull but also enhances sexy cleavage. It comes with two nipple covers.

Range of A-F cup available

Pros:

• Gives breasts a push and lift.

Cons:

• Reviewers recommend going up a size for the best results.

Review: “Was very sceptical about this product, as I’m a D cup and didn’t think it would offer much support, but I was wrong, it was brilliant! I danced all evening (4 hours!) and it stayed in place perfectly. It was comfortable and easy to put on and take off. I would totally recommend this product. It arrived when they said it would, instructions were clear and it is packaged well. Couldn’t ask for any more!”

• Does the job and is comfortable - even in hot weather.

Cons:

• Not as sticky after the first wear.

One reviewer wrote: "I was panicking as my wedding dress felt like it didn't fit properly at the top as my boobs didn't fill the built-in cups and felt insecure. I bought this bra, the sizing guide was great as I am a B so as recommended, got the D. On the day I put it on by holding the cups in place and my bridesmaids pulled the sticky pads in place. It was perfect, made me feel so much better and my dress fit perfectly with this bra to give me the extra support. Felt comfortable, didn't even feel like I had a bra on and It did not budge all day and would recommend it to anyone with a backless dress to give you the feeling you are wearing a bra."

• Can’t be made completely backless just converted for low back dresses.

Julie said this was the best nude bra ever: “This bra is very adaptable I have used it as a halter neck with a backless dress as well as over each shoulder straight or crossed at the back via the removable straps. It fits very well, gives great cleavage and came with lots of accessories i.e. back extender, alternate length straps and clear straps. It has washed up very well time and time again but as nothing else I’ve bought past or present has compared, I'm buying another to put aside for when it eventually breaks.”
