At one time or another, every gal falls in love with a dress that poses bra related challenges. Low back dresses and ones with back bearing cut-outs might at first appear impossible- but don’t hesitate to grab one in your size and head to the dressing room! Just be sure that before you commit, you have an option lined up for the proper bra solution- you wouldn’t want to ruin the effect of that beautiful design with a visible bra band cutting across your back. Va Bien, NuBra, and The Natural by Coconut Grove Intimates have each created a solution for the low back bra- one or more of which may work for you!
1. Vintage Strapless Longline Bra by Va Bien
Available in B-F Cup, Va Bien’s Vintage Strapless Longline bra is the perfect match for a dress with a back that dips down a few inches lower than the normal bra band line. Being a longline bra, it offers much more support than the standard strapless- the flexible spiral steel boning gives your bust an extra gravity defying boost. If you attend several formal functions a year, this bra may be your go-to gal!
2. NuBra Original Silicone Adhesive Bra by Bragel International
Great for dresses or tops that are low back, backless, or that have cut outs, NuBra is a silicone gel cup that is lined with a medical grade adhesive that allows for repeated use. Follow the instructions given in the pamphlet inside the box for the best results! Available in A-C cup.
3. Low Back Converter by The Natural by Coconut Grove
An excellent choice to use with a bra you already own, the Low Back Converter is a must-have bra accessory. Intended for use with a bra with shoulder straps, the Low Back Converter attaches to the hook side of your bra closure, wraps around your waist (the strap is adjustable), and then attaches at the eye side of your bra closure to keep the original band of your bra low and anchored to your body creating a lovely, strap free effect for deep V back or cut out back dresses.
