Fashion Forms Body Sculpting Backless Strapless Underwire Bra Bra
The name of my review is essentially how I feel about this "bra". It's not horrible but it's def. not anything to write home about lol. I wore it for the first time last nignt w/ a Herve Leger bandage dress that I was also wearing for the first time. It had a very low cut back that I couldn't wear a regular bra w/ so figured this was the perfect time to try the adhesive one. I'd tried on the dress originally w/out a bra & honestly after putting on the "body sculpting" bra, I didn't see much of a difference. However, HL bandage dresses are known for being made to enhance a woman's figure naturally so maybe on another dress, I'd see more of a difference. In general though, there were 2 things I disliked about this bra. One was I felt like it actually made my breasts look smaller(I'm a C cup) b/c it smushes them so close to your body. Also it didn't look/fit like it does in the picture advertisement. On either side of my body there was adhesive that just wouldn't stick to me. It was the exact same spot on both sides & I tried adjusting the bra to fix it but no matter what I did, I couldn't get it to stay down. It didn't affect the way the dress looked but again I'm not sure if it would if I wear a different, less structured dress. Really the main benefit for me was that I just don't feel comfortable not wearing a bra at all since my breasts are on the larger side. So in that way it served it's purpose. I've never tried any similar types of adhesive bras so I have nothing to compare it to. I'd really give it 2/12 stars if I could. But I wouldn't say not to try it, just keep your expectations low.

This item is good for its purpose!
I bought this product to wear with my backless rehearsal dinner dress. Although, it does not provide the same support as a regular bra it does serve its purpose.

Do not waste your money
Buy a bandeau!!! While a bandeau may be slightly uncomfortable, it is reliable.
I followed all directions and could not get the bra to say adhered to my skin. But that's not a the biggest problem. I bought a "C" as my bra size is 32C. But all "C" beasts are not the same size. e.g., a 38C has much more breast tissue than myself. The generic sizing of this bra does not account for that basic bra-fitting feature.
This is a great concept but needs to come in real sizes.
