Adhesive bras are a low profile alternative to a strapless bra. An adhesive bra is the perfect bra accessory when you need the support of a bra without actually wearing one. An adhesive bra works similar to a strapless bra. However, instead of a band to hold the bra in place, adhesive strips or pads attach to your body. This is not a bra accessory meant for everyday attire. For special occasions, with more revealing silhouettes, an adhesive bra is a great option when your normal strapless bra might show.
