Red Carpet Secrets: Beware Of Beaming Headlights

With the Golden Globes just one week away, we are revving up to see what the red carpet has in store for us this season. One thing is for sure, there are certain things we definitely don't want to see and that is any nip slips or perky headlights - though it does make for good gossip! All week long we are going to share some red carpet secrets with you. Enjoy!

If you have not yet heard of the The NuBra, $60, get to know your new best friend. These adhesive silicone cups give you the freedom to do whatever you dare as well as make you appear as though you are going bra-less. I call them "chicken cutlets" because they feel surprisingly like real breasts, but also kinda like raw meat! How's that for a description?

They are incredible and the most popular gift I give to my friends. They are painless to remove (unlike the band aid-like pasty fangle florals, $8 for three pairs which hurt and burn when you pull them off).

NuBras are thick enough to give you support and to keep your nipples from showing through a t-shirt, but thin enough so they create a smooth and invisible illusion. A clear clip attaches the two cups and allows you to create the amount of cleavage you desire. They last for up to 150 wears.

For a smaller chested option,

If you are smaller chested and don't need quite as much breast coverage, you can also try, Silicone Gel Petals. They are $15, and mimic the idea of the NuBra, but are smaller and meant to protect and cover the nipple area. The drawback is that they don't offer any cup support.

I'm also a full D. I HATE those new molded strapless bras because they just add more fullness, and almost no support. For formal/dressy outfits, I do like the Felina longline from their bridal collection. Other than that, it's masking tape and petals, for me.

I'm a 34DD, and I've had pretty good luck with the Victoria Secrets strapless bras for tank tops and low-cut dresses. It's not as good as a regular bra, but definitely works. I'm also a big Wacoal fan, but I'm not sure if they make strapless?

i'm a larger B and i can't get them to work on me. i distrust these glue-on types of bras.

They don't work on me at all, C or small D. I would also love suggestions... And if you sweat alot while you are wearing it, it falls off, FYI. (my sister has one)

I have not tried the nu-bra, but I have tried the pasties and they are awful. I am also big-chested and was wondering if they make a nu-bra line specifically for d-dd?

i totally need this! i have used those petal pastie things and sometimes get an outline lol. and it would be nice to have some extra OOMPH! but question: how do they stick on and stay?

Neni- I've read the reviews and unfortunately anyone bigger than a D says they really don't work :(

OMG I wore one for New Years and it was amazing! But you can get them at CVS or an As Seen on TV Store for $19.99 and they work just as good. Forget the overpriced ones, they're no different! Macy's also sells one for $30 if you can't find them at the other stores.

are there any good options for those who are fuller at the top? (d-dd) I've been searching forever for a good strapless bra which provides support and lifts the girls and have yet to find the "holy grail" of strapless bras for my size. to make the search even tougher, I'm a 32 band... :::sigh:::

These are absolutely fabulous! I love NuBra- perfect for those of us who have little to work with. It's so frustrating when you can't fill out your favorite low cut dress!
