Best Stick-On Bras, Invisible Bras & Nipple Tape 2023

Let’s give credit where it’s due: stick-on bras (including invisible bras, nipple tape and everything else that falls under that umbrella), are some of the most innovative lingerie accessories that anyone with breasts can own.

Think about it; when you’ve got countless date nights, weddings, events and parties in your diary and you’re dying to wear that backless dress or plunging top, there’s always one question at hand – do you feel comfortable forgoing a bra? Or what about when you want to wear that linen dress for your upcoming holiday, but the fabric is (characteristically) lightweight and not exactly opaque, and your usual go-to underwired bra sticks out like a sore thumb? Again, ditching the underwear altogether might not be something you’re entirely confident doing – so how can you enjoy all these occasions while avoiding the dreaded #nipslip?

Well, you needn’t fear. There are a tonne of smart and discrete solutions on the market that’ll offer support under pretty much everything – even if you have a small bust. There are silicone stick on bras, push up bras that appear invisible, strapless bras with wings, backless bras, nipple tape and U-plunge stick on bras. There are even stick on bras with drawstrings for a lace-up, cleavage-enhancing lewk. As for how to choose the best stick on bra for your bra size, skin tone and outfit requirements? Here’s everything you need to know…
