The Best Bra Alternatives

June 17, 2023


Team LIY

Strapless / Booby Tape / Nipple Covers / Sticky Bra

We get it. Sometimes, a great outfit + your traditional bra just don’t go hand in hand. But never fear, LIY is here! You shouldn’t have to sacrifice the perfect outfit because of a bra – err, lack-of bra. If you’re stuck in a strapless, sleeveless, back-less situation – we’ve got your [bra-less] back! 😉 While you can always ditch it and go free [we fully support this decision!] sometimes the girls require a little extra support. And that’s where we come in! The LIY Team has pulled together our best kept [not-so] secret bra alternatives!

SPANX Undie-tectable Better Bandeau

SPANX Undie-tectable Better Bandeau [use code: LIYXSPANX for 10% off]

Sometimes a top or dress calls for a little extra coverage[without the straps] …and that’s when I grab for my bandeau! I was so happy to see that SPANX offered this pretty one in 3 colors! I love that it’s basically a strapless bra with a little pretty mesh bandeau making this super comfy, pretty and fit perfectly! I purchased this in my normal size 34B and it fit like a glove! Don’t forget to use code LIYXSPANX to save 10% off this must have!

SPANX Strapless Bra

Boob Tape

Boob Tape // Dress [true to size] // Heels

Backless dress?! No problem! This dress is an LIY Community favorite, but one of the FIRST questions we get about it is which bra to wear! Well, this blog post/boob tape is here to be our solution! This kit is under $25 and comes with tape, nipple covers (disposable and reusable), as well as double sided tape. I also was glad that it gave me visuals on how to use it. Note: have two hands ready to go because I got myself in a stick together tape mess and wasted some 🙈

Adhesive Bra with Nipple Covers

Adhesive Bra with Nipple Covers

This product has been my go-to for years! They’re reusable and the adhesives sticks well [yes, even while dancing & sweating! 😉 ] and I love that clasp that gives a little extra shape + lift. I’m a 36C and would highly recommend! Bonus: it comes with nipple covers when you need less coverage/lift, but they don’t need to be worn together!

Nippies Silicone Nipple Covers

Nippies Silicone Nipple Covers

These silicone adhesive Nippies nipple covers were a hit for me! They’re a reusable adhesive silicone and come in several colors! I would probably be a little nervous wearing these with a looser fitting top that they may come off after long wear sinced they aren’t truly “sticky”, but for a more fitted top or great they were great! Pro tip: size up 1 to not see the edges through shirts/cover more of the boob!

Nippies Silicone Nipple Covers with Lift

Nippies Silicone Nipple Covers with Lift

Honestly, I LOVED these Nippies with the lift, but unfortunately they didn’t work with my spaghetti strap/low cut tops and dresses I was trying them due to the upper lift part being too thick! However, if you had a low cut dress with thicker or higher placed straps that wouldn’t show, these are a fantastic way to add lift!
