The Perfect Strapless Bra

*This post was sponsored by Upbra, all opinions as always are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support The Classic Brunette!
I love bras. I'm definitely one of the few women that really has a love for this particular under your clothes accessory besides its practical use. So obsessed that I have over 30 of them. Yeah, it's excessive. I love how they can be pretty, help perfect an outfit, and help make you look your best, especially for us more busty gals. But the one type of bra I've never liked? Strapless. They're uncomfortable, tight, don't give you any lift, and never stay in place. It's beyond frustrating and makes me never want to wear anything strapless again. However, that's impossible with my love for off the shoulder tops and intricately sleeved clothes (anyone else have those dresses where your bra straps always seem to show no matter what?). So what's a girl to do? Thankfully I have the solution: a strapless bra that is comfortable along with being functional AND providing great lift.






Normally I'm not one for push up style bras. I've got enough bust where I don't feel like I need to accentuate it even more for normal everyday wear. But once again, this is where this strapless bra issue comes back to haunt me. I've tried a fair number of strapless and 'sticky' bras to try to achieve the same look as a regular bra and have continually failed time and time again. The main problem that I've found is the lack of support and lift. For women who have a fuller bust, the bras literally slip lower and make everything look low and not so perky, not the ideal look you're probably trying to achieve. I was beginning to give up hope that I would ever find a strapless bra that had all the qualities I was looking for, but then I was introduced to Upbra.

I was skeptical when they promised that it wouldn't slip, would provide better cleavage/lift, and was comfortable enough to wear all day. But I've been over the moon happy with how this bra has worked. You can tell the difference with this bra the second you put it on. Even if you haven't adjusted it for the better cleavage function, the lift is the same if not better than a regular strapped push up bra. The secret behind how it works is the unique inner straps between the cups. You can see more about how it works, but essentially it's a mind blowing creation that will give you that fuller lifted illusion that other strapless bras don't have.

My favorite part about this strapless bra is that I'm not fidgeting with it all the time. With my other bras I would be pulling at them for digging into my skin, falling down, or just trying to adjust them since it never made my bust look quite right. With the Upbra I don't have to worry about it falling or moving into a different spot. I actually forget that I'm wearing a strapless bra, which is a miracle in my book!

The strapless bras come in white, nude, black, and red, but if you want more options they also have a swimwear line (with the same lift technology!) as well as traditional and convertible strap bra options. I'll probably be picking out one of their swimsuits once summer rolls around!

Have you tried Upbra? What are your main concerns when shopping for a good strapless bra?

  1. These are a little pricey, but if it does what it says it does, it's worth it. I hate strapless bras because they never stay put, so I may have to give these a try.

  8. I have never heard of UpBra. I am on the hunt for the perfect strapless that I might just have to try one. I am the same with you though, obsessed. I mean how do we say no to something that can actually have cute prints and make us feel even more beautiful?

  9. I have some silicone... cups (I think that's how they're called) that I use when I wear something backless, but it does not feel extra safe honestly.

    I'll try this one as well. Thanks for the recommendation!

  15. I have a strapless bra from VS that is pretty good, but after a full day at work I'm still anxious to get home and take it off. Glad to see more options for strapless are becoming available!

  20. Despite it being quite expensive, it's always best to invest in hard-to-find quality bras. Thanks for sharing. This is a must-try!

  21. Thanks for sharing!!! Strapless bras work great when you don’t want an ugly strip show to ruin your glam look. These bras stay hidden under your pretty outfit and secretly provide you with the much-needed support and lift. There are several dresses, tops, and outfits which call for wearing a strapless bra. Recently I have bought a pair of strapless bras from the Cosabella brand which is simply amazing and everyone should try it.
